"Wow" I give it 4 stars because I haven't launched it in the field yet. Use without an internet connection is a huge plus, couple o' stars right there. The information and photos really do add a "wow" factor. Infinitely more data and objects than I will ever use but that's okay. Turn 'em off.
Excellent and very functional Without doubt this is the best night sky app for Android tablets. There is a wealth of information integrated with many tools, a realistic sky, and an intuitive UI. I will use it daily and I'm grateful for its GPS sensitivity. I wish 6 stars were available. Great app and more than worth the price.
Problem with gps? On lg2 stock android 4.4.2, GPS seems unresponsive at worst, jerky/incorrect at best. I've seen other comments here reporting the same. Another thing I noticed: the pick feature doesn't appear to be calibrated . If I tap on the screen, it appears about a centimeter from where I want to click. I'd give this app a higher rating, but I need this fixed first! Thanks.
Gyroscope issues? I can't seem to get the app working to where I move my Note 3 around to view stars and planets. I know this has worked fine in the past, but now, moving my device around just makes the on-screen rendering of the starfield jump around erratically. Not sure what's up. Stock 4.4.2
Brilliant Ive been using distant sun's since before you had to pay for it and it has never failed to answer all of my stupid questions !
Love it This is a great app, to see all that is up in the sky. Fascinating. I thrill my friends by pointing out various stars and planets. But one thing: Why are the names so small? And when I zoom in, the images get bigger but not the names. Still hard to read, even with bifocals. Please fix.
• Should now show as being available to Nexus tablets
