Calibration is super glitchy. You can turn your phone 360 degrees but everything will still point in the same direction while shaking. I have anther app that works perfectly and also let's you zoom in a ton into the moon, naming all of its crators & giving information about them (all the stars & planets, too). I haven't played around much with this app yet so I'm unaware of all it can do. I took 2 stars away for bad calibration (point my phone at the moon, app says moon's behind me).

I LOVE this app! I use it constantly. My only issue is, since I got a new Pixel 4a, the moon cuts off on the right side of the screen. Weirdly, it is barely in the screen at the first quarter, new moon and last quarter, but moves over and cuts off at the full moon. And always it's off center. I put up with it because I know and love the app already, but maybe there will be a fix!

I've had the app for some time now and have come to rely on the "rise" and "set" times feature in order to prepare my photography equipment. Unfortunately, that feature has stopped working! Both the rise and set windows have large, red, exclamation Mark's on them. Tried unstalling/reinstalling...still the same!? I cannot find any way to reset this feature. With the rise and set times working, this is a 5 star app! Thanks to the developers for correcting the above mentioned problem!! 5 STARS!!!
