My sister let me in to an app on my phone which will use both the camera and the gyro to overlay stars on your pointed image so you may more easily map out star constalations. Well, i'm moving my phone around, just poking at different positions when the ISS shows up.

I know you arent able to track any other Sat's, but this was a cool utility for free!

What program is it? I've been looking for a Sat track app for my Blackberry (yea good luck, I know.)

Mobile Satellite App

Sounds similar to Satellite AR for Android. It overlays satellite positions over the camera input. I downloaded it from Android Market yesterday, but only played with it for a few minutes, so I'm not sure how accurate or useful it is. Looks neat though. Might be worth checking out.

The only app I found for my BB is SatME, a java based app that is text only but works in realtime. Cool thing is, it works (I guess), but it's a demo and I don't think it's offered or supported anymore :(

Thanks! Works great on my DX.
