After a year of working perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy S9, the App now crashes or goes to black screen every time I try to use it. Prior to this issue I'd have given Starlight a rating of 5 because I love its simplicity, accuracy, and user-friendly interface but it's almost useless now. I've uninstalled and reinstalled to get the latest version but that didn't resolve the issue. Please, please fix this previously super app!

Doesn't require to be connected with the internet (but do open it after download whilst connected to the internet). The good thing about this app is it's still accurate even after 2 weeks on no internet connection. It's great for stargazers who don't have any available internet connection; but in the event that you switched off your phone or restarted it, you'll need to open the app whilst connected to the internet.
