I've used this so for years but recently.. perhaps because I changed devices..I no longer have the ability to view the sky as I move my phone. I'm not sure how you refer to that feature but for me that was the reason I used the so... now it only serves as a basic non interactive sky map... and as awesome as that is its just not the same level of awesomeness.... please help me fix this issue if it's on my end... thank you

Hi! You are right, it is the phone (Galaxy A11). The feature, called auto-scroll, requires a magnetometer (compass) and your phone doesn't have it. Thanks for the kind review. I hope I can implement a workaround for this problem in the future.

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.
