I really like this app. not as an Astronomy / Astrology hobbiest, but to quickly identify what i'm looking at at any given time in the sky. the constellations are Beautiful. i wonder if it would be possible to have a full sky view as an at a glance quick reference view of the sky above the horizon. this would show what i might not actually see and zero in on an area for a longer look. . keep up the great development, thanks.
Good and reliable app. The pictures of the deep sky objects (DSO) help locate interesting objects to watch or image very easily. This feature is much better handled than some of the paid apps such as sky safari and some of the free ones like stellarium. I have found myself using this app more frequently than the paid ones. I hope the developer could add more of these DSO images as the numbers are still limited.
With my location activated and working just fine. Finding my location isn't accurate at all on image. I can see the moon to my right but the app says it's right in front of me. What is up with that crap
It's really cool except every time I open the app it shows me different constellations, when I am holding still and not moving, so I can't actually tell where things are. The constellations on the screen move too quickly and it won't allow me to press my finger on the screen to zoom in on any particular star or constellation. So it's hard to use
The compass on this app never orients itself in the right position. You are never pointed in the right direction to see what your wanting to see, and there's no way of correcting this. Do not waste your time with this app. 04-jun-16 now they're saying it's because of a metal magnetic cover. My device has an otterbox which is plastic and there's no magnets in it and it still doesn't work right so I'll leave it up to you.
Sometimes the orientation is wonky & I have to shake it a few times before it is accurate, hence 4 stars. I love everything else about this app; I even bought the non-ad version!
==Please REMOVE the metal case or magnetic cover to avoid interfere and get accurate orientation==
