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.
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 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.
This app lacks 2 things. The first is an algorithm that brings all the 8 different scales into a simple single readable scale, like down to what magnitude stars might be visible in the next 48 hours. The second thing is it needs to take into account the background light pollution for you area. THAT would be a useful app. This is a swing and a miss to me.
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.
