Awesome Awesome, awesome! One of my favourite apps. Excellent for finding meteor showers and constellations. Love it!
Nice, but... On every location setting this app thinks I'm in a town a few km from my real location, putting everything in the star map several degrees off true. Okay for obvious stellar objects like the Moon or Orion, but is that Sirius or Arcturus? It would be cool if you could make the app recognise actual GPS coordinates instead of it thinking I'm in 'X' town because it can't be bothered to look at GPS and figure out I'm really 2-3km east of there. Still a great app; I'll happily award the 5th🌟if this is fixed.
Hard to use For some reason, my phone shows opposite of what I'm trying to look at. I have to turn around, to look at the night sky on the screen.
Since writing the a review that was is was disappointed with this application, I was contacted by the developers and they made some suggestions for me to try to correct the issue. One of them was to download the newest update for the Sky Map. The vers. I was using was very old. Also I found out that some Motorola phones will tell you that your phone does not have a necessary features installed to make the Auto-Mode work properly. If you get this error message and just ignore it and download the newest vers. and then click on Auto-Mode the application should work just fine. It did for me. Thanks Sky Map Team!
Does not work. No matter what I do, I can't get it to face any direction except south. Compass, rotation, and light level is high.
It detected the directions right. Would be better to make the compass calibration easier coz the current method made me drop my phone twice and I still couldn't successfully complete it. Edit: Glad to have received response from app developer and Google is to be blamed for such a tough calibration method. Nevertheless, I'll use it for a while before bumping up the stars. :) Edit2: Just saw that this is an opensource app. That deserves an extra star for sure!
