Nice app The only things I don't like is you have to give your GPS location manually and it takes a while for the local data from the net to be downloaded, but I am allocated a certain amount of high speed internet a month when I add airtime to my phone. But it doesn't take forever to download net data when my speed slows down. Very visually pleasing. Nice graphics and awesome overview graphics. This app with its nice graphics needs to be a live TV channel. Human announcer giving forecasts, background music, etc.
Good app I really appreciate the app but the latest updates actually made it worse. Now it seems unable (most of the time) to get location from wifi or gsm cells and you cannot opt out of the alerts. It just keeps the service running in the background. Still though probably the best Android astro weather app
Won't Update Day It Is It won't update what day it is. It shows me the past 3 days and is not even current. Checked and checked and checked for some "refresh" or something. I even tried to uninstall and reinstall. I sit here writing this Saturday morning and it only goes to last night at midnight. I'm not bothering with it any more. I'll just look at the weather forcast...
Now fixed! I can now download the data and see what a great app this is. It's actually better than I expected and will help me tremendously when deciding whether to set up my astro-gear for the night. Most useful app on the Play Store for the amateur astronomer! Thank you!!! ******** Earlier Comment: I really needed an app like this, but as many others have stated, it hangs on downloading whatever data it's trying to download. I imagine this to be an easy fix, if the author would only take a minute to look into it. It's probably the forcing of location via GPS when a device without GPS is being used. Why force location via GPS? Please make this optional as Google's location services already use lon/lat specs for location settings.
Issues Used to work great on my Galaxy 4 then after an update it never worked again. Now I have a Galaxy 6 and still it won't work. Best app to use if your an amateur astronomer. Was always pretty darn accurate. Would really like it to work again. But nothing I do works.
Junk Does Not Work It worked once upon a time but not any more some kind of 7 error crap. I think the author lost interest. I downloaded it twice in the past year on two different phones but no go. It says downloading when you start the program and it never comes up with a screen. Hey it is free so why should the guy care, he should just remove it so people will not waste their time trying it.
