Just the best! Very nice app that seems to do everything. A wealth of information on all objects mapped. Well worth the price. Just a minor point. There should be a way of editing Jupiter's GRS longitude as it's now around 270 rather than the 190 used by the app. As I don't see any responses to reviews I don't think the developers read any of this though which is a shame.
I like this and it works well, I got a problem and I can't seem to get any help. It saids I don't have the necessary sensors for the live view. This is my new tablet, I had to buy newer tablet this year for something else . On my older tablet it works great no problems. I would recommend it and still do,because so far it's working like it should at least as I can see. It worked great on my older tablet. I hope to be able to write later that they made a fix for it. I really like it. I have not figured what sensors I need.
I highly prefer Redshift applications for PCs, and I highly prefer the Mobile Observatory application for my Samsung Tablet and Samsung Phone. I am able to track various Lunar Calendars on Mobile Observatory with greater ease than with the Redshift app for tablets and phones. Another benefit of Mobile Observatory is that you can save multiple locations on the earth for viewing. The Redshift app for tablets and phones lets you save 1 location, only. I do not know the limit of locations on Mobile Observatory. I currently have 23 locations saved on Mobile Observatory. The locations can be saved to your device's internal memory. If I sought to improve Mobile Observatory, I would expand the time to include 500 years in the past (1500 AD) to 500 years in the Future (2500 AD). Currently, Mobile Observatory is limited to 1900 AD to 2100 AD. The Redshift app for tablets and phones is limited to 1600 AD to 2400 AD. Despite this 1 negative criticism, I choose the Mobile Observatory app as my favorite app for tablets and phones, and I say it well deserves 5 stars. - Timothy Helland (Seattle, USA)
When I click on Liveview it tells me that my phone doesn't have the needed sensors to use Liveview. Bf and I have the same model Galaxy Express Prime and it used to work on his phone and now it doesn't. We have tried other star maps in the past and seem not to have a problem using those maps. I paid for this one because I wanted the best, and this one looked like the best. Is there a fix for this issue so that we can use Liveview? I don't want to uninstall it because it looks amazing... Thanks. Still... no one will get in touch with me over this issue months later. There was nothing that said it would not work on Galaxy Express Prime. We wanted the Liveview most of all. Please explain? Please?
Great app for a casual observer such as myself. The live view is great for the times that I forget a star or constellation's name. Time travel lets you see what's coming up, when and where to look, comet names and brightness and lots more interesting stuff for binocular or more serious telescope astronomy. Love it!
I have been interested in Space for many years. This app is fantastic for finding out whats going on in the heavens. One minor issue is that being in the southern hemisphere Live Sky has the poles reversed. I can fix it but not 100% sure as to what the fix is.
