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.
Really great! I really like the graphics, the correct placement of the stars, planets, and planetary systems. I am busy taking astronomy and this helps me find stars when I like to use my telescope. Sadly my Samsung core prime doesn't have to full features of the gyroscope. Great app none the less! :-)
Best free sky viewer. I'd say this is the best sky viewer app you can get for free on your mobile devices. Just this April I went to the US space and rocket center in Huntsville Alabama, and they used it there. Great app doesn't need any premium content to work well. 10/10.
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
