    Hey guys,
    I had DP AR Pro on my Android phone and it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. I just bought an IPhone 5s and got the DP AR Pro app for it. I notice it is a little bit different and I cannot get it to work. When I look up at the sky where the eastern arc Dish birds are, the line and birds are just floating all over the screen and do not lock into place the way it did on my Droid. Is there set up instructions somewhere? Thanks!

    It's live video, If you hold the phone steady, the sats will stop moving.

    Nope. that's not it. I've been using AR Pro for the last 6 months on my Droid. Yes, when you hold the phone steady, the sats sit still. But not on the App with my iPhone. The float all over the place even though I am holding the phone steady and they are not accurate. I sometimes saw this with the Droid app when I needed to calibrate the horizon. This app don't have that feature.

    I just took it outside where my dish is and tried it. It was showing the 61.5 sat sitting out about 270 degrees when it finally stopped drifting.

    Since I already paid my $20.00, I'd sure like to get DP AR Pro working. It was wonderful on my Droid. If I can't get it fixed, maybe I can get my money back and try something else.
