This is an excellent app. Using this in laptop for many years. I gave 4 stars only because mobile (Android) version doesn't have all the starlore latest PC (Linux) version has. I am paying for the Android version so I expect it to be flawless. Then again this is an outstanding app and those who are using it, know this already.
On Android I would be lost without it now. Best app I have. !! (Like Bino's, naked eye & scopes, don't expect to see or locate anything thru heavy clouds) I have 6 telescopes but at night when hanging out of the bedroom window with the camera, it's good to have this app on hand. Or if it's getting cloudy and I need to find a star or planet fast. Only an idiot would be without this app !!
I love Stellarium. I've been using Stellarium on Windows and Android for years now. I have compared this to many other observatory apps, some of them quite expensive, and Stellarium is still the one I use most often. I teach astronomy and I encourage my students to purchase this app as a mobile companion to the labs we do in class on Stellarium for Windows.
Location Flaw Good app but the user experience for the location sellection is terrible to a point that that feature is unusable. For example if you select United States you have to scroll all the way down to the bottom, then it brings up a list of ALL US cities. If I want Reno I would have to spend 5 minutes scrolling down to the Rs.
Just OK... After using the desktop version for a little while, which is just awesome... (and FREE!), I was expeting a lot more from the mobile app, especially as a paid app... THe us of the gyro/accel isn't that great (slow/sloppy), no occular view, must zoom to far in to see object labels... There is great potential but its not there yet...
The Best! Works on PC Mac, Android, I use it on all three platforms. It helps me find whats up there now, later in the night, or later in the year. There was a problem with sattelites that after reporting it got fixed with the latest upgrade. Thank you.
