It was working great. Opened the app and pointed at the sky and it shows everything spinning to the right. Aimed to the southern hemisphere and it spins to the left. It wouldn't focus on any single point, just sounds away from what I was trying to look at. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app and that did nothing. It told it was recalibrating the camera twice. How does that take nearly an hour? Worked great until it didn't. Gonna try something else.

Nice app. When I first downloaded and tried it, the compass settings (and sky) didn't line up with reality - ie. South showed up as though I was looking northeast. A few days later though, it worked perfectly. The graphics on this app are really good. If you hover over a star, satellite, or planet, it gives you info on it. In the case of planets and satellites it expands the planet or star into an image of it. If you hover near constellation it connects the stars with lines and an image.

Great app. Easy to use and does what it's supposed to do. Graphics are good quality. Fantastic music. Ads only appear occasionally when the app launches or when changing a setting. The one thing I'd wish for is more customization options.
