Ever wonder what maps or graphics will look like to the color impaired? There's an app for that! The Chromatic Vision Simulator is available free for iOS and Android.

P-Track displays near real-time Satellite position, track, health, and coverage information on a 3-D interactive globe. You can zoom and rotate the globe to view all available Satellites. The App allows you to see ground tracks as well as coverage footprints for a selected satellite. The App also displays a SkyView Plot of all satellites in view of your iPhone - it displays Azimuth and Elevation angles of each Satellite your phone can see. You can even view the Ephemeris, current Cartesian XYZ coordinates (Earth Centered Earth Fixed (ECEF) and Earth Centered Inertial(ECI)), and Latitude, Longitude, and Altitude of any chosen satellite. 

P-Track is available on iOS.
