Review from A Google User
Beutiful i that you can have galaxies and planets and suns at your hand is amazing. It is simply the most beutiful and coolest app ever Love it so much
Amazing results I seldom go out of my way to rate apps, but this one is truly outstanding! The map is accurate and as long as the phone location is turned on will reflect everything celestial there is to see in the sky. It even shows the correct location and phase of the moon. If it seems off and you use the android battery saver, make sure location is on (battery saver turns it off). You might have to restart the app after making that correction, but after you do, the map will be dead on. Absolutely love this app!
You must have your GPS turned on. If you have any trouble. Check regular Google Maps to make certain your location is correct. Once Google Street knows where you are. It works perfectly. The new calibration screen is wonderful. I normally have GPS turned off, so it helps speed up getting the app to know where I am. Then I use Google maps. My VPN creates confusion on finding out where I am quickly.
Awesome Seriously amazing. I love finding stars with this. New update with gyro support is great, but there seems to be a small amount of rotation drift even when the phone is stationary. The drift did not stop, although it appears to be related to compass calibration. Even though my compass accuracy was listed as high, I recalibrated, and the drift has decreased.
Setting your location manually fixes the out-of-sync charts. :) Network based auto location settings used to work like a charm before, but now fail to do this, and unfortunately the app doesn't warn/prompt you either. Still rating this 5 because it's a fairly easy workaround and the app itself is still (literally) stellar! The gyro feature has made moving around the AR interface absolutely beautiful.
Update killed app The latest update has killed this app. No longer works like it used to do. Doesn't move accurately and shows wrong information and items in the sky which are there aren't. Do not waste your space with this app from this day forward. 7/17/2016
Perfect for an amateur that loves to just look up at night For once a sky map that actually is easy to match up with what I am seeing - uses gps, compass and network to pinpoint where you are standing and as you turn it will show you exactly what you are looking at and then identify them - just discovered that I was seeing both Saturn and Jupiter as well as Mars - only two planets I knew for a certainty that I could see with the naked eye was Mars and Venus - wonder how many times I have misidentified them - lol
Now uses your phone's gyroscope (if your phone has one) for a smoother experience. Enable it from settings.
