Just point your phone at different parts of the sky to update the sky map. But search function is confusing. Don't click on magnifying glass in main sky map screen. Instead, click on the 3 vertical dots (...), then click on the magnifying glass. Why would you program the search function this way? Please fix it. The app takes up just 2 Mb of space on your phone, not like some other apps taking up 100+ Mb. Thank you developer.

Thanks for the review. The UI is in the process of being overhauled. Earlier, the "map" screen was the only screen. I am now moving some of the functionality to the "home screen". The Search button will be accessible from the Home screen too in a future release.

Something bad is going on with the app. There is a huge delay in reaction to any input you make on the scope, and the motion is extreme. As you make adjustments, nothing happens, and then all of the sudden you are on the other side of the universe. Used to work very well, but lately the sensitivity has plummeted. Please, fix the app, as it is quite neat in its approach to polar alignment.

Well...Generally speaking—It works; It is Free; It has NO ADS—for any would-be app maker...that's a solid ~4 Stars right there. I don't have a choice to parse out the last star...it's certainly not perfect; again, ...it's free..(?). BUT! Free can always be better! Now, I gave 5 stars—however, in the spirit of 'Free & Better,' allow me to criticize: 1. The Horizon needs to be fixable relative to device/preference. 2. An alt perspective would be useful (Sol top-down for ref?) 3. More Free!

Thanks for the review! Criticism is very much welcome. (I think of it as "feedback" since the app keeps evolving). 1. Horizon fixable: this is very much on the radar 2. Not currently on the radar, but noted 3. Always endeavouring to!
