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!
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!
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.
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.
The must have astronomy app Excellent astronomy app and planetarium, superb details and content. Absolutely mountains of encyclopedic information available. Extremely useful and very informative. Accurate and smooth live sky make this app a joy to use in the field. Regular updates garantee this app stays at the top of its tree.Totally recommend to anyone interested in astronomy beginner and advanced.
Everything you need and more... ... for pocket space exploration and education. Great for tablets but not too small on mobile phones. If you wonder what is above and beyond or what is interesting to see today than you will be satisfied with this app!
- Automatic download of updated object descriptions
- Improved pointing for Live View (using Sensor Fusion)
