Clearly they don't want you to use a free version. It's so crippled its unusable and it tries to get an upgrade with almost every click. However, I mainly just wanted to leave this review to see if the author would be belligerent with me too. I've never seen such a crazy set of review responses. Please sir, rip me a new one!
Attempts cash grab at every item selection. Once would have been plenty. I strongly preferred the Smithsonian app, but do appreciate the effort. If it were cheaper or if I was going to use it more than one time, I may have bitten and paid up.
App works great! $2.99 is no big deal. Having gps function allows for accurate times and totality duration on the fly in case you change your location. Aug 21st will be busy and crowded in the shadow! Be prepard!
Don't know which is worse, the app or the petulant responses from the developer. They sound like they came from some angry teenage girl who just got called out on Facebook. I guess I shouldn't say anymore or I might just get called a "hater".
i dont get why everyone is complaining about the price for an upgrade as if they dont understand how business works. i had the free version, and had a excellent and easy time using it. i had no issues, and would definitley buy the upgrade if i had the money. (also p.s. your guys responses to complainers gave me life)
Wants you to pay to use location services to load your current location and gives you two other less convenient options to either find yourself on the map or input lat/long coordinates. Problem is the map never loads and the coordinates field won't accept a minus sign so half the globe can't use this option. Why deal with this? I'll just get a different app.
