simple, does what it says nothing more... it shows the actual stars, plane of the ecliptic, galactic equator i guess, (would help if those lines were labeled) ... constellations ... and you can spin the map around etc... doesn't have any time/date/location dependent stuff, which makes things simple and light, but eg no planets, which is kinda limited... can't zoom out far enough, and navigation is a bit limited (can't upside down, and i'm on southern hemisphere, so the sky is upside down!) btw I found another complimentary app, Planets, which does what this simple app lacks :-)
Stars Very well done! Those looking for awesome photos may be missing the purpose for this application: The user views the celestial sphere (full sky) at an "unaided-eye" level of detail and navigates the sky from one group of constellations to another. More cluttered presentations would hinder the effort of learning these basic patterns on the sky. Satisfying in itself, this is an important first step for pointing binoculars and telescopes without electronic assistance.
Fills basic necessity For those who want gorgeous images, take the eyes away from the mobile and look at the sky. The beautiful real things are there. Don't forget to use this great star map to learn what constellation you are looking at.
For all rageous people This app only does what it says : offer a map of the night sky for learning purposes. If you actually need it to look at the sky "on the run", you came to the wrong app.
Not what it should be I was extremely disappointed in this I thought it would actually work but no, I'm uninstalling
Stars Amazing. So hard to believe. I have always wanted this! 67 years old.
Learning mode. remove the constallation name and border. Try to find the constellation. A long touch enable the border to appear for a little while.
