Better than any of the others This is great for the known universe. If it had satellites, ISS, and NEO, and an alarm to notify when certain events happen, it would be more than awesome. The developers are very talented and deserve to be compensated, but I haven't seen that yet. Just found the features I wanted above, they are pay for add ons. Can't wait to discover everything else.
Amazing app I just have one suggestion though: The Milky Way Galaxy's position is not accurate in the app. I followed it to take some pictures only to find out that I wasted over 200 frames which captured only a small part of the galaxy. Fix this and I'll give 5 stars.
I like the basic premise of it, but every time I switch to another app like the Google one to check info, and come back, the app will crash. And I wouldn't have minded a pop-up regarding SC Infinite if it would've saved me the $3 to activate the Comets feature in this version. Yes, I'm aware that Infinite is $5, but that's about 7 bucks less than paying $12 for single DLC
My Dad Cried (Galaxy S5) So I downloaded this app and I showed it to my 9 year old sister and she thought it was okay, I showed it to my mom and she loved it. But when I showed it to my dad, he was so amazed he started to tear up. I know that this sounds fake but I'm not kidding. I would have never thought it would've gotten the reaction that it did. This app is extremely recommended.
I was looking for high resolution augmented viewer for our galaxy I was plesantly suprised not only is this containing the superb high quality image of the milky way from earths perspective many other celestial bodies are viewable upon opening the application, there are many buyable additions which the app can notify users of events of interest to come, even a picture was added to my album dated 1970's I'm not sure if this was an actual satalite image on this date. but I was plesantly suprised.
Compass on its own? Have several star map apps on my LG G4 with none of them I have a problem. But installed this one several times but never gets the compass right. After installing I looked for Polaris that should be more or less north of us on the northern hemisphere but according to the app it is somewhere east of me. Guess just uninstall and look further
