Not Happy With App I have owned this app for a while and loved it! Paid for this app and everything was working great. Now it doesn't work properly, Troubleshooting does not work, neither does synching it. I point it right at the moon and it shows me Pluto and when I move my device the screen does not even move. On top of this when I hold the device still the programs screen just shakes all over the place. Fix these issues please! The program used to be awesome now regretting wasting my money.
Really, 4.7, maybe. Really, Excellent, on the whole. This uses Compass Mode, which Street View used to have, alas. While presented as a game, it surely looks like the product of quite a lot of aggregation of data, presented with eye candy. One can learn quite a bit from it! Assuming you have a full accelerometer and mag. field sensor array, you tilt your device to see a full spherical star chart. Poking at a star brings up a summary data panel, and more for important objects.
So awesome I love using this app when im outside in the evenings, i just lift up my tablet and look around the sky. Really fun to learn a bit more about space even though astronomy isn't one of my hobbies. Very detailed, and good interface.
Needs updated Planet information and gentle music Pluto needs the new information and picture. Stars would be nice to zoom in on. Gentle music and sound when touching stars like other apps would be a nice touch. Also more information about planets when zooming in or a quick link to their Wikipedia page. 5 stars if you update Pluto at least. Show that you are keeping on top of the information as we learn it :)
What happened to this app? This app used to be great but for whatever reasons it has totally stopped working. On my nexus 6p the screen bounces and jumps all over and is totally unreadable, and on my nexus 5 it would lock up and not track. Fix this or give my money back.
Points to empty space. Once worked well. Now it's pointing off every planet, star everything. Tried what I can to calibrate it yet nothing works. If I load up Heavens Above or Solar System Scope apps they work perfectly. Real shame as there are some great features.
New in v.3.0.10:
- Improved star visuals on hi-res screens
- Fixed difficulties in selecting planets and meteor showers & satellites on hi-res screens
- Added object category to databox
- Improved deep-link responses
- Integrated Google App-Indexing, so Star Chart results can show up in Google Search
* Fixed the strange camera distortion issues when in AR Mode, which affected some devices, like the HTC One.
* Fixes crash on some older OS versions when notifications were triggered.
