To calibrate the compass for android while.in the app hold your phone upright and tilt it from left to right repeatedly, then front to back repeatedly , then while upright rotate from left to right repeatedly. Repeating these steps will increase the accuracy. Also I paid to remove adds and now the compass button isn't visible if I look around manually.
You know, when ever a star gazing app has decent visuals and manages to use gyro appropriately, I'm thrilled. And this does both beautifully! I'm sitting outside late at night, new moon, no light noise, listening to the gross and Owl's arguing... The app performing perfectly.... Heaven. And then.... HUGE WHITE LIGHT AD SEARCH BAR AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN!!! ??? WTAF? Needless to say I'm writing this review by Braille at this point. Unfortunate.
This app is cool. I love looking up at stars. I live 25ish miles away from LA and the light pollution blocks the stars. I've lived in Socal my whole life and I'm currently 19. This app allows me to look up to the sky to see more than what I used to see before the population in California grew.
Handy little app for beginner astronomers I just started getting back into a strong and just bought a 6" Mak. This app has been handy just to get and idea of what's in the sky and where. It's not super accurate, but works well enough for its purpose. Really love using it.
Disoriented Recently uninstalled and reinstalled, but problem remains: it's telling me East is North! I've liked it heretofore but this orientation issue needs to be fixed!!
The app couldn't be closed - I had to resort to clicking on the top of screen ad to then get access to controls to swipe it closed :( curiously I never had that issue on my old V4 iPhone ) Other than that - yes it's good .🙂
Fixed an issue with textures not appearing on some phones.
