Beautiful + Easy + Informative The first day I used it, I found it inaccurate, because I didn't calibrated it. The second day I did it casually, and bang on the moon was exact behind the app's moon. That tell the accuracy. Now I can find all planets and can see them when they rise or set. Great app for a man who loves the space but dont have any equipment to enjoy its beauty! And all this comes as free in small MB size. I cant believe it!!
Amazing for showing our kids the real map of the sky, and not the one that we guess about while pointing fingers all over the sky. For the calibration issues on Android, make sure you do the figure 8 calibration as the guide tells you during setup. Where first installed, south was north and everything was upside down. The figure 8 fixed the issue immediately. Have fun, this is an incredible app.
It's nice that this app can show you what each star and planet is and where it's going. However, I don't know if it is because I have android 7 or if it is the app, but this application can't seem to use the sensors on my decide correctly. It can't calibrate and it goes 'hay-wire' when I point the device at what should be North or South. Please fix these issues.
Needs some work.. So app used to work just fine now it won't work at all. Have uninstalled and reloaded several times. Is just frozen. Thought it was my compass but test prove working fine. HAVE SENT REQUEST FOR HELP WITH NO RESPONSE. Please fix or give advice....
This app doesn't work If deserves a 0 out of 1000! Point it at the full super moon and its telling ne its the star Pisces! The moon is directly over head and the app is telling me its 30 degrees to the left. Terrible, Useless, Crappy APP! It doesn't work! Tried manual fix. Same sh!t. A waste time my time.
Will NOT calibrate correctly I downloaded this for use with the beginners telescope I bought for my son, as recommended by the manufacturer. I have a brand new Sony smartphone so I know there's nothing wrong with that. This app will not show me the correct positioning of objects in the night Sky and apparently you can only manually calibrate with Apple products. Funnily enough, performance is excellent on my wife's iPhone. Extremely frustrating.
