    You may want to change the title of this thread to include Android. So many commercial developed apps are made for iphone with no attempt to include Android. Us Android users are used to seeing this so we just skip over headlines that only mention iphone. Which is exactly what I did until just now. I was curious to see what the app looked like so I clicked the thread and was surprised to see that it was available on Android. I downloaded it right away and it is really great!

    I have been using this app since it barely had any reviews last year. It's simple, the right options you need, FREE, uses GPS to know your location, and the best part is it auto updates the lists!

    Great work, I don't know why anyone would want a different app.

    The best/current site I have seen. Thanks!

    Minor point: When I click on a city I get a Parse Error Line 120. ???

    Totally useless. Only a very few of the local repeaters listed - none of which I use.

    Just downloaded the app for android. Interesting!
    It does seemed to have totalled missed the four D-Star repeaters in the Dayton Ohio area!! W8HEQ on both 2 and 70 cm. and W8RTL on both 2 and 70 cm. Both sets of repeaters have been on for at least several years.

    Otherwise, thanks for the app. It should come in very handy while travelling. :)

    Not showing anything on my iPhone for some reason... picks up my grid as FN32AT, but shows no repeaters... even with distance set to 200 miles.

    First thing to check, you will need the RepeaterBook application for North America (Red icon). Repeater Locator (Green icon) is for countries outside North America.
    FN32AT with 2 and 70 FM selected shows 48 repeaters within 50 miles.

    Sorry for any confusion.
