Pocket Rocket keeps track of all upcoming SpaceX rocket launches, and reminds
you of when they're happening. Launch dates change constantly, so we act as your
launch concierge to make sure you never miss out on witnessing history. With
this app, you can view existing and future rocket...
One of the best
A beautiful, sleek design. Beautiful renders and a fun AR feature. While it currently only has 1 widget, it’s pretty spot on perfect and even if more get added can’t see myself changing from it. Testing against others for SN8, pocket rocket was the only app to give updates up until scrub, and starship is not even fully supported yet (I do have basic subscription for these notifications). Team is super responsive to questions/problems and you can see the amount of time and work that goes in. I do wish subscriptions were more cohesive, all features for $30-40 a year would draw more in than the current price tag. Bottom line, is pocket rocket worth what you can spend? 100%
Beautiful App / Poor Launch Alerts
I love this App. It’s beautiful, very Apple-esq and fun to play with. However, I’m giving it three stars because the humans in charge of schedules & alerts have driven me to rate this app. There’s a saying “garbage in / garbage out” and it applies here. The person in charge of inputting calendar data is constantly sending alerts apologizing for inaccurate schedules. I’d say 1/3 of the alerts are “correction” alerts. Let’s retrain this employee and have them input / update rocket schedules correctly the first time. I’ll gladly give this app a solid five star rating if I can go a year w/o receiving and “oops” alert.
*Update*- Customer Support is great!
While I was kind of upset at the monthly subscription cost, I can totally see where they are coming from. I had an issue that needed to be resolved, and the developer responds very fast to my emails. He helped me with an issue that even Apple was not helping with. While the monthly subscription isn’t for me, it is a great app that I would recommend if you are willing to pay an extra subscription fee for. Even if you don’t pay for a subscription, the app is still pretty good.
A little sluggish, but very cool app!
This runs slowly on my iPhone 7 Plus. I understand this is likely due to processing such high quality models, but it doesn’t feel polished from that angle. Might be nice to have a low quality mode, for slower devices. (My phone never acts slow in other apps—maybe this just needs better optimization?) Some UI stuff: hard to know when you can view certain rockets: e.g. can only see crew dragon on crew dragon launches, but can switch to other vehicles, like Starship, at any point.
Makes rockets even more fun!
I used this app during its beta period and I’ve never had so much fun knowing about and watching the rocket launches. The AR aspect is also a lot of fun to see just how big these rockets are, or small enough to fit on your table. I would never have called myself a rocket enthusiast but this app has made me a fan. Download it.
Well Designed App!
As someone who wants to learn more about SpaceX, I feel that this is a great place to start! The app is very well designed and the information included about each launch is great. I don’t see the big fuss about notifications either. $0.99/month seems to be a reasonable price to get up-to-the-minute updates on each launch. However, it would be nice to see that rolled into the application since it is a paid app. Questions for the developer: Is an iPad (universal) app coming/planned? Do the rockets “take off” when the countdown is complete? Keep iterating on the design and rolling out new features to everyone not just those who subscribe to your tiers. Those of us who paid for the app, thereby supporting you, will be very grateful. Thanks!
Paid App Treated as Free App
I paid to download this app expecting to receive updates about launches. I got that. But you also want a second purchase through an in-app subscription. I literally received a push notification today saying, "we hope you enjoyed our complementary notifications." It wasn't complementary, the app was $2.99! Pick a pricing strategy and stick to it—either in-app or up-front, but not both. Also, don't use push notifications to advertise the subscription, pretty sure that is against App Store guidelines.
Worth the price. Yes
But it will take a bite from your battery. 5 min of playing around = 10% of my battery. Could say a lot about my battery but I do not see that issue with you tube And let’s hope they can improve the power consumption in future releases
Really great concept
A really well executed app that has almost everything you would want on it if you want to follow Spacex in its endeavors. There are still a bit of functionality and interface aspects that could be improved a little, but from what I hear, they’re already working on it. Can easily be a five star app in its later updates.
A well designed app that fails at the one thing I want it for the most: notifications. Just got an alert for an impending launch in five minutes, only to open it and have it show four days from now. I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten more false notifications than legitimate ones. I remember them saying something about SpaceX’s API changing or something, but if I can’t rely on the app to be accurate, not much point in having it on my phone.
I just downloaded the app and it seems great but...the very first upcoming launch for a SpaceX Starlink is showing April 22 but the launch is April 23 so...how accurate is the calendar? UPDATE: Pocket Rocket was correct and on top of it! The app was showing the new date even before it made the news...I’m impressed!
Do dreams come true?
This is everything I’ve ever wanted in a SpaceX app. Everything at your fingertips with some astounding UI work. Worth the fee, for sure. The developers are responsive and genuinely care about putting out quality content.
Extremely well made
Polished app. Exactly what I wanted and the AR stuff is fun. Wish it was easier to make it 1:1 for outside or something! Also please make an iPad version!
Where is CRA-18?
Nice simple app. Images show the starship model and it doesn’t appear to be available yet. Maybe once they confirm a hop test it will go in there, but if you advertise it as a feature, it should be there. Also, maybe a brightness setting? My rockets are very muted depending on lighting in AR.
The app became unreliable with Upcoming launch updates. They simply stopped coming. Just missed another launch this morning. VR function is cool for about 30 minutes but the real value was knowing when the next launch is. Looking for a better app now.
