As a lover of stars and beginner in astrophotography, a friend recommended this app and it has changed how I can look at the sky. I love this app. I only get annoyed with the one type of default overlay; what the constellation represents as an object or person etc. The good news is I can remove it! The ability for it to locate via compass is time saving and makes things easier for me as a beginner. It can pinpoint the horizon which is also extremely helpful. Worth every penny!

As a constant stargazer, this app has been an amazing tool in helping me navigate the cosmos. It affords you the ability to find out which constellations are nearby, which planets are within those constellations, all with a streamlined presentation. One of my favorite features is the photo feature that allows you to take a picture of your surroundings, while pointing out and drawing on the constellation lines. This is definitely a fun and useful app!

It's a pretty good app. I paid for the ad-free version. But I don't see any options to disable *very* frequent notifications about random astronomical events. And I don't believe in cannot be made to believe that that's an android OS problem. I have plenty of apps on my phone that push certain catagories of notifications but not others.
