Great app, but non-obvious workaround for gyroless phones I reinstalled this app after over year of not using it on my 1st gen Moto G. It worked in the past, so I was surprised when it didn't work this time (sky not moving in auto mode). Turns out I needed to check the "Disable gyroscope" option in the settings. I actually thought that the compass or accelerometer was a gyroscope equivalent. A more novice user might not have bothered looking for a fix to this known issue.
Earlier it was best. Now it doesn't work The first time I installed it, it was perfect and worked best (without internet). Then after some update, it required Internet connection, without internet it wouldn't work. Now, it does not work at all, I mean it never shows the correct orientation in the sky, even when internet and also GPS is enabled. I tried reinstalling, still same issues.
It's wrong It isn't showing me what is in front of me but, instead, what is behind me. I wanted to know what star was near the moon tonight. I had to turn my back to the moon and look at the ground. I can't find any setting to correct this.
Fallen from grace Used to be such a good app, however after upgrading several phones over the years the app hasn't kept up and flat out doesn't work on my Moto z force. Premium phone with outstanding performance so I know it's not my phone but the app can't seem to use gyro data correctly and just spins the image around on screen as though you were moving. Not useful in this manner
Constalation Map I love this app, there's so many features to this app that continues to excite me. For example, you can go into the past, & forward to the future to see constalation, plus you can go to a particular date & time. I took a picture one day without knowing there was 3 plants that my camera pick up. I've put the exact location time & date of what planets was in my cellphone picture, That blew my mind to see what planets was in my picture. It'll be educational for children and adults, so get it, NOW.
Bugs after latest update Orientation issues. Not able to zoom out. And app behaving wrongly on tilting. Can't even point to the moon. Please fix it asap.
Workaround for bugs in the Samsung S4 and Note 3 that caused crash on start up.
Workaround for a small number of gyro-less phones that misreport their sensor status causing the map not to move.
Uses gyro by default if supported
