Not bad BUT... It could do with a night mode IR view so it's easy on your eyes. So when your looking through your telescope outdoors at night your not blinded by the normal app light. Also the adds need to go, can't have them flashing up any time they want. Very annoying. Over all a great app that needs very little tweaking.
Know what they are in the sky This app is awesome! I'm a software engineer myself and this just amazes me. You can actually point your phone at the sky and deduce exactly which light is which planet. Only problem I have is everytime I open the app it has my location at first, but then goes to New York. I have to go to the bookmarks and load my location. I also agree with other users. Let us buy the ad free version. One thing is forsure, we should all look up at the sky more often, and less down at our phones.
One of several good apps. I recommend this and Google Sky Map and Sky and Telescopes "Tonight' s Sky". They all do pretty much the same thing, but have different approaches and appearance s. I say have all three at least if you're really into astronomy! It's a matter of personal preference, . This is a good one but requires some understanding of what the difference is between celestial equator, horizon and different map projections. This gives the "Big Picture ",the sky never changes only the horizon moves. Set magnitude to 3.5, if
Excellent app, but... This is an incredible app, but I hate the ads. With all the work it took to create this app, and in light of the rather cerebral nature of the subject matter, would it be possible to offer an "ad free" paid version?
Exquisite. But Ads are Detrimental A breathtaking achievement. This is the work of brilliant minds. Why desecrate it with ads? Let users pay a ransom to free this app from vulgar adware.
Location wrong Keeps resetting location every time it's opened, makes it rather worthless in the antipodes. Looks cool other than that.
