It would be great.... If only the most important feature, the calibration of the sky tracking, actually worked. It's incredibly jerky and constantly seems to think that I'm facing the opposite direction than the one I'm actually facing. This makes it next to impossible to appreciate any of the other features. I had this app on my old phone (galaxy avant) and it worked great. I installed the updated version on my new phone (galaxy J7) recently and it's never worked properly.
Travel Frequently? Try this relaxing app It's fun to see the constellations move with the seasons and when I travel. Even in the city when I can't see the sky. Yeah, the music is kind of annoying. But just turn down your volume! Works great, no errors.
Buggy Sky What a disappointment. I saw this on a friend's iPhone and it rocked. Downloaded the $.99 version to my android phone. Tapped on a satellite and it sent the screen to somewhere else in the sky. Suggested I pay another $6.99 for the information upgrade, which I did. Then when I tapped on a planet, it suggested I should upgrade to the pro version, which I did, for an additional $2.49, which seems to have loaded an entirely different version making 2 versions on my phone, both buggy.
Don't bother. Updates don't seem to improve anything Just tried the latest upgrade (26th Nov 2015) and it still doesn't know where North (or any other direction) is. I have tried it on several Samsung devices with no success. This used to be a pretty good ap, but ruined by last few updates.
It's alright I just bought it like 30 minutes ago, I wish it wasn't so sensitive, when I try to move it around & that I could turn off the sky calibration, as it's not as accurate. Overall, it does help find constellations & is helpful. i wish it showed other things like where the pleiades are, cause I'm sure I found them, I know the story, but confirmation would be nice.
This App Is Amazing! With the help of this app, I located Mars tonight and it was AWESOME! And I saw Jupiter and Saturn - I never could've picked that out before! I'm in awe and feeling very tiny right now. It's mind blowing...
