Constalation Map I love this app, there's so many features to this app that continues to excite me. For example, you can go into the past, & forward to the future to see constalation, plus you can go to a particular date & time. I took a picture one day without knowing there was 3 plants that my camera pick up. I've put the exact location time & date of what planets was in my cellphone picture, That blew my mind to see what planets was in my picture. It'll be educational for children and adults, so get it, NOW.
Still one of the good ones! I had this app before and removed from a previous phone for space. Just never had installed on my (then) newer phone. (Using Note 3) installed tonight, downloaded quickly and was ready to calibrate. Calibration took a couple of trys and did end up using the figure 8 method to do so. (Explained in app) Went from low accuracy straight to high. Everything lined up perfectly. Such a fun app that's also very functional. Now I'm eager to see if it will work just as well on my new(er) phone upgrade.. Note 5.
Terrible Primitive people were more successful than this app regarding astronomy. Really inaccurate despite setting and location tweaking. Has me spinning in circles when I search something. Sometimes the screen will be stuck in the same place when moving around. It shows the Moon in the wrong direction. Overall control of the screen is none. Not steady at all. Horribly inaccurate.
Amazingly beautiful... but.. I thought that this app had some amazing quality to it but all it does is point out the different constellations, stars, and planets. it doesn't show galaxies, nebulas, nor comets like Haley or helix nebula and also this app doesn't show any Nasa or Hubble images of any of the things I listed above which is rather sad...
Best - but be careful The only app that could locate me and the astronomical bodies I wanted to find. Be careful with the magnetic clasp on your phone case/cover. I found that if I had the magnetic clasp folded over the back of my phone it would throw off the sensor's alignment. I experimented with this several times.
Earlier it was best. Now it doesn't work The first time I installed it, it was perfect and worked best (without internet). Then after some update, it required Internet connection, without internet it wouldn't work. Now, it does not work at all, I mean it never shows the correct orientation in the sky, even when internet and also GPS is enabled. I tried reinstalling, still same issues.
Workaround for bugs in the Samsung S4 and Note 3 that caused crash on start up.
Workaround for a small number of gyro-less phones that misreport their sensor status causing the map not to move.
Uses gyro by default if supported
