Great app. There are several like it but this app seems to have some more features than the rest of them (light spectrum, star-gazing, etc). I like the option to search for things, that really helps if you want to learn about something specific. The controls could use some work, dragging your finger seems to go really fast and is hard to control at times. The menu buttons are also very small and not very mobile friendly. Overall, could be improved but I appreciate the work the developers put in and definitely has an edge on others like it.
Buggy "Touch and move" moves sky with 10x finger speed. Makes it impossible to navigate the sky. Aligning to the world, both up/down and north/east/west/south with GPS and build-in tilt doesn't work. Two fingers focuses on "up" and zooms in and out too fast. Icons insanely small. Should copy movement of Google earth and the like, but doesn't. Maybe better on a tablet.
Night Sky Pro Being a man of my words, I removed the post that I made last night. This app is working great now. I face a certain direction it point there, as I turn it turns with me. I will once again promote your app. All three of them, Night Sky, Night Sky Lite, Night Sky Pro. Please do me and others this small favor. And all of us will be more happy with these apps. That is the tool parts, mack those buttons a little bigger and a little bit more space between them. Thank you for a great app.
Another crappy release Trying to scroll and finger sensitivity is crazy high, 2 finger zoom is terrible/impossible, scaling of content is awful with tiny icons on a high resolution screen and blocky content in the main view itself. I only got this as the weather forecast looked interesting but it gives 0% humidity all the time. Basically, this is completely unusable.
Its rubbish. I can accept that the makers can use GPS to know where the phone is and what the sky should look like, but if you imagine they can in some way 'know which way your phone is pointing at any given moment then you've been smoking too many fairy leaves. There are loads of complaints all over the internet from people just like me, who see North labelled on the display for any and every direction they point their phone.
Needs Tons of Improvement The buttons are far too small to even press, the app itself is laggy, and lastly it's almost impossible zoom because the moment you press your finger on the screen the sky map moves as though you're not using the built in compass on your phone. "Skyview" is a far better stargazing app.
