The App that alerts when satellites are watching!!!

SpyMeSat is the new Smart phone app that is developed in US which tells you if you are being watched by the imaging space craft.This app provides you the notification about all the action if the spy satellites and unclassified imaging satellites are watching you.
SPACE.com reported that the low-Earth orbit satellites that are imaging will be included in this SpyMeSat app.Enabled SpyMeSat satellites include such zoom-lens notables as GeoEye, the French space agency's SPOT-5, India's CartoSat-2A, DigitalGlobe's WorldView satellites and Canada's RADARSAT-2.All the commercial and the international imaging satellites available public information is being used in this app and also uses the orbit data from NORAD.SpyMeSat does not include all imaging spacecraft. No classified imaging satellites, from any nation, have their orbit information published, so these satellites do not show up in the app."I actually got the idea for the app from talking to friends outside the aerospace industry who were always very interested in space and satellites and imaging from space. This app answers those questions in a fun and interactive way," said Alex Herz, president of Orbit Logic in Greenbelt, Maryland which developed the app.
