Wasted six bux The live sky feature that I most bought it for won't work because my thl smartphone doesn't have the required sensor. Can't they at least list what's required before you buy it or give some kind of compatibility warning? Ripped off!
Highly usable, nicely designed Flexible, seems accurate, efficient (doesn't seem to use power when left in background, unlike some apps). Maps are attractive(!) and detailed. New graphical alt-az allsky overview map is helpful and novel. (tho it 's less useful in per-object listings). As an active amateur I recommend this program heartily!
Live view is not really live You can not point your phone to an actual spot in the sky above you and get an accurate image and description of the object. This app is advertised as being able to do just that in Live View, and it doesn't, not as described.
Superb. This is my favourite mobile planetarium. No other planetarium app has the amount of content on heavenly bodies and real time updated information on cosmic events, which can be experienced virtually, or direct you to an observation time and location. The developer responded personally to a bug report and promptly released an update fixing it. A Project worthy of support.
Excellent Takes a while to learn all it can do! At first could not see below the horizon but that came in later, perhaps needed time to load. Maybe more comments later.
Comprehensive astronomy App The opening screen makes the App components easily accessible...the 'set to your calendar' and Wiki options are really useful...dev responded to suggestions by reviewers changing UI in Top Down View - now better than ever...buy this app if you are into astronomy, or if not yet, it will get you there...
- Automatic download of updated object descriptions
- Improved pointing for Live View (using Sensor Fusion)
