A lot of work has obviously gone into this but it's not good enough. It never gets a gps fix even when google maps does. That doesn't make sense. Entering location manually with lat long and elevation does not match the google earth scheme which most people would refer to, and could be confusing even though i was able to work it out. It does however seem to track the sky correctly. But where are the constellation names? I don't find this useful in its current incarnation. Good work has been done, but it needs more work.
Use this for finding out what I'm pointing my camera out. Helped me find Jupiter and name some bright stars in the night sky. Works great. Can be a bit laggy on tracking. Might be my phone
I just cannot thank u enuf for this amazing app! I live in the city & this allows me to "see" everything I'd otherwise miss.It's beautiful, accurate, in depth & easy to use. Not to mention it's FREE! Thank you for all your hard work! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APP!!!
Great app for finding out what that bright "star" in the sky is. Seeing an interesting pattern, I'll whip this out, and within seconds my curiosity is satisfied! I'd love to have a nice telescope to pair this with someday. For now, it's quite a powerful tool to identify what's in my night sky!
The BEST planetarium available anywhere! Have every feature that will be helpful, during the time, gazing up in the night sky. Recommended to all amateurs. Helps in getting to know what you see, and helps to track others as well. Really an Awesome app! Thank You for creating it.
It's ok if you have your Android device strapped to a telescope or tripod, but certainly not useful for handheld device. I was hoping it would help me find meteor showers, but I can't keep waving my cell phone around in the air trying to find planets or stars. It's frustrating.
