Great app with one serious flaw This app is over all very good, but I desperately wish that I could turn of the wish compass mode when I tilt my device. The message about the compass being better in horizontal than portrait mode is not dimmed and red dodged with the rest of my screen. A simple check box I could uncheck to disable this feature would keep this app from thinking my night vision.
Good to have I bought this application in order to control my Skywatcher Star Discovery 150p. And it worked perfectlly via bluetooth with a SkyBT serial to bluetooth interface.
Best astronomy app I have been using sky Safari for a few years now and it exceeds my expectations all the time when I'm out observing or planning a night of observing. It replaced several other astronomy apps because it does everything and more. For example the location of the moons of Jupiter at any particular time in the evening are displayed accurately when you zoom in. Same way with Saturn. Deep sky object information is fantastic gives you all the information you could possibly want on everything. Could go on and on.
Missing Major Features and Has Big Bug So far playing around with the app, I've found that it's missing some major features that a PAID app shouldn't be missing. You can't turn off sound effects as far as I can find (SO annoying) and the compass feature turns itself on and off rapid fire every time I try to use it. When it does work, it's not calibrated as well as every other app that uses the compass on my phone. That takes away a lot of its functionality. The "find" feature is not as intuitive as other similar apps.
The best Tried a lot of similar apps over the years, but always returns to SkySafari.
One of the best, but... This has been the best sky app I've used, but now, I can't turn the comets off (Note 4), and they block my view of everything. The box for displaying comets is NOT checked. I've even gone back to default settings. Please make a corrected version.
