Installed, turned on Location an put phone on a table... East was nearly 90 degs out! Slowly turned my phone around and North turned around too, such that North was all around me! No way to calibrate and the devs do not reply to people's comments. This app for me was useless and poorly supported. Good luck with your own experience!
Excellent application to explore the stars! I love it and so do my kids. My Samsung S5 works perfectly with the application. The trick is to calibrate the compass by turning the phone around a couple of times in all directions. Check on the Web to see how to do this. And do it every time you start the application and see its not pointing correctly - to check this, just pick something you know like the moon, a planet, the sun...
Great app! I really enjoy being able to grab my phone and look at the stars off our deck and be able to tell what each of the constellations are with my kids.. however I wish that when it gives notifications of things like meteor showers, that you could go back into the app to get more info about that event..
Not at all accurate. I was curious about some of the constalations around my house. The big Dipper is right above our neighbours house and this app says I'm looking at cancer. That's totally wrong. I even took my cheap plastic case off. Still provided the same wrong info.
The tracking is not working on my Note8. I can move the map around only manually. Am I doing something wrong??? I use the phone as a sat nav a lot, so the phone is ok.
Is there a way to calibrate it? Its showing north about 30° out. Im looking at the sunrise and on this app it is about 4inches out. Other than calibratuon issues, i love the look of the map when it is open. Smooth movement, dont care for the music, and if the shooting stars are not real, leave em out. They are distracting.
