As other reviewers have said, the app is a little broken with regards to finding your location. I've managed to get around it by starting any navigation in google maps to force the phone to hold the GPS location, then running the app. I always want the same charts, so I keep them in favorites so I don't need the GPS on except during initial setup.
Doesn't work on Galaxy 2 tablet I've used this app for several years on my droid smartphone. Works great on phone, but not on Galaxy 2 tablet. When selecting "nearest" it gives Newfoundland charts (thousands of miles away). Won't let me manually input my city. PLEASE FIX so it works on wi-fi tablet.
Needs WIDGET/ALERTS If this app had a Widget it would be awesome - I want to see what the upcoming conditions are at a glance - not have to dig into the app. Also, notifications/alerts of upcoming sky conditions are a must for this to take the place of the website. I would definitely pay for those 2 functions. Unfortunately I don't find myself using this much otherwise.
It works... Many thanks The location finder is a little buggy. The keyboard doesn't seem to come up. Here's the workaround, if you type your city somewhere else and then copy it from there. Come back to the app, long press in the search box and then paste your city and then search it will usually find your city. Mine was a small city, found it in a sec. Thank you for the great app.
Doesn't work The same as others. Gives newfaundland in the nearest list, whereas I'm in Europe. can't enter a place to search for and hangs. Thought I'd finally found what I was looking for, but this is real disappointing.
Location worked for me This app worked perfectly for me. It didn't have any trouble detecting my location. The complainers are probably people who have disabled Google location services, then can't figure out why their phone doesn't know where they are.
