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
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.
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.
Still one of the good ones! I had this app before and removed from a previous phone for space. Just never had installed on my (then) newer phone. (Using Note 3) installed tonight, downloaded quickly and was ready to calibrate. Calibration took a couple of trys and did end up using the figure 8 method to do so. (Explained in app) Went from low accuracy straight to high. Everything lined up perfectly. Such a fun app that's also very functional. Now I'm eager to see if it will work just as well on my new(er) phone upgrade.. Note 5.
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
Terrible Primitive people were more successful than this app regarding astronomy. Really inaccurate despite setting and location tweaking. Has me spinning in circles when I search something. Sometimes the screen will be stuck in the same place when moving around. It shows the Moon in the wrong direction. Overall control of the screen is none. Not steady at all. Horribly inaccurate.
Amazingly beautiful... but.. I thought that this app had some amazing quality to it but all it does is point out the different constellations, stars, and planets. it doesn't show galaxies, nebulas, nor comets like Haley or helix nebula and also this app doesn't show any Nasa or Hubble images of any of the things I listed above which is rather sad...
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
