Love it. Easy to view quickly where each wandering object in the sky is. Now during this rare Winter Solstice and many days around it the Jupiter and Saturnus are on top of each other and it's only possible to tap the other one as they are so together now. So it's only possible to tap the other when you adjust settings to hide the other. Not that that's a big deal but maybe something to tinker. :)

This is a great little app to quickly see what's up in the sky. The interface is minimalistic, intiitive, and it's great for determining any in depth research you might want to do before heading out to enjoy the night sky.

Have tried lots of apps trying to find a simple guide to the night sky, without the clutter most of them have. Lucky to find one that does what it says on the tin.
