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.
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.
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 frogs 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.
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!!
Really good but had to clear app cache before it it put the moon and sun in the right place. North, south east and west was correct. Think it thought I was in the wrong hemisphere.
I gave this app 4 stars but then... The next time i opened it the orientation is wrong. Shows north but really it's west. Opened up a compass app and calibrated that, now the orientation is correct again. Weird.
Fixed an issue with textures not appearing on some phones.
