Loyal fan from the very beginning I had a Distant Sun on every iPhone from 1st generation to 4S. I got the Galaxy S4 instead of the iPhone 5 and all I can think about is putting Distant Sun on my Galaxy.(update since my last comment) No matter how long this app has been out it never gets old, it has great content and the compass is DEAD ON. I am now running this app on my Galaxy Note3 and star gazing has never been funner.
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.
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
Not as up to date as ios version Comet ison? Why is it in the ios version but not this one? This looks like an older version, keep it up to date please. Other than that it is still a great planetarium program.
Compass feature. I love this app, that's for sure. The only thing I wish was improved is the Compass accuracy. When I use my HTC Sensation to look at stars, my phone is off, showing stars slightly to the right from their actual positions. If this could be fixed, that'd be great. Thanks for the awesome app. -Raf
