Hyperion looks like a low resolution grey potato When I look at apps like this I check the quality of moon surface images which are readily available online. Why then does Hyperion look like a grey featureless potato? Also I can't see any GPS tracking so that i can point my phone at a piece of sky? Cmon guys you can do better for an £11.99 app.
Some niggles but as good as starry night I've had some niggles with force closes and some setup issues. But one those were sorted I've been really impressed. Its got so much detail and useful features. I love being able to adjust the magnitude of the stars and dsos, using this to adjust to seeing conditions and scope aperture is really helpful. Still thinking if I should have got the pro version, now I have this great app I really think I would the extra stuff would have been worth it.
DaveW It's nearly a year since my last review, & nothing's changed! I love this app. It has so many good features. The only thing that stops me giving it a 5 is that I still can't get rid of the toolbar on landscape mode. It takes up too much of the screen. Correct this as on the iPhone version & it definitely gets a 5+!
Bummed out Used to be able to use the compass or gyro for free. I just paid $14.00 for this app because the free version won't allow compass use. Neither does this. What use is the app if you can't hold the divine up to the sky and have it tell you what it is your seeing,
Glad I bought it Like the numerous features including advanced searches, logging, planning and what I bought it for - telescope control. SS4 seamlessly integrates with my skywatcher mount and wifi adapter. A little issue when scrolling on the search the display rolls and flickers but it does not affect its operation. I suspect this issue will be picked up and rectified on an update. Well worth the $21 I paid I think.
Sky safari 4 plus : Stargazing. One of the best apps I have, so easy to use and very accurate. So tempted to buy pro, just an amateur, maybe next payday. Keep up the great work because you make a lot of other apps mundane and outdated.
