Needs a bit of tweaking... if you select night mode, it should default to night mode when you open it... also, the advertising needs to go to night mode too otherwise it defeats the purpose... an enhancement could be to add a selection to have the objects ordered as you would view them in a Messier Marathon
Remarkably Practical This application demonstrates tremendous functionality, delivering the desired information about each and every one of the 110 Messier Objects compiled by Charles Messier in an undeniably efficient and consistent manner. There appeared to be a small fragment of information missing for some of the objects, but overall, the application delivers effectively. The inclusion of high resolution pictures is a nice addition. The only bothersome aspect of the application is the advertisement toolbar.
VERY BRIGHT!!! TINY IMAGE, NOT ZOOMABLE AND OF COURSE B&W... NICE APP, BUT OMG, IT'S VERY BRIGHT AND SERIOUSLY NEEDS NIGHT MODE ASAP!!! APP HAS TINY IMAGES WHICH ARE NOT ZOOMABLE (TOTALY SUCKS! AND OF COURSE THEY ARE B&W (WHICH YOUR EYES WILL SEE IF YOU HAVE A MONSTER 3 METER SCOPE... COLOR WOULD BE A NICE UPDATE/UPGRADE... A GPS OR GEO-LOC WOULD BE A NICE UPGRADE SO WE CAN CLICK ON THE OBJECT IN THE CATALOG AND THE APP WILL MOVE AROUND TO HELP US FIND IT, KIND OF LIKE A POINTER.
Very useful! Excellent work - especially considering the original app is in Spanish; the English version is very understandable. A few translation quirks, but it doesn't detract from the usefulness. On my Archos 80 I find the top 'back' and 'options' buttons hard to use, but that doesn't cause any genuine issues. No doubt as time goes on, such things will be modified.
Flashing Ads! To monetize an astronomy app with bright flashing ads is idiotic and makes it worse then useless. If you turn on night mode you expect to be able to use it at night...... While observing...... But if you do, say goodbye to your night vision! This is the kind of app that should have an ad-free version. It would be worth paying for, but as-is it's worthless.
Not good for serious astronomy students. Ok for curious people but not good for serious guy's. Very First mistake I noticed was in very first object. That was in M1 in info it's shown that it's in cassopia but actually it's in Taurus. Even the finder charts are very basic. Not useful for star hopping. Also not zoomable.
