About this app

Ever used Google's Sky Map to identify a star, but wanted to know more than just the star's name? Star Odyssey fills that gap.

It includes:
* Over 70 of the brightest stars in the night sky
* Pronunciation guides (it's not obvious how to pronounce many star names)
* Origin of the name (the meaning of a star's name is often insightful)
* Brightness and distance from Earth
* Interesting astronomical facts
* Includes all stars displayed in Google Sky Map
* Integration with the SkEye planetarium app for locating stars (Unfortunately Google Sky Map does not support this feature)
* Algol Eclipse schedule (find out when to watch the Demon Star fade and re-brighten)

I would have FINALLY been willing to give this app 5-stars & a proper review for what it does IF ONLY the devs had added both a "Light" theme AS WELL AS A "DARK" THEME in a daylight mode to the app! It was often far to much of a strain on the eyes to try to use this app when it was in true night mode only, but for many people who work the night & graveyard shifts as security guards, police, etc. & who MUST have & maintain strong, clear night vision the Light themed day mode - or as we call it: "Bright Mode" - is a night vision killer & potential death sentence for us! It kills our night vision for seconds to minutes & leaves lingering spots in our vision for many minutes longer even after our night vision is restoring - spots that can sometimes be mistaken for a lurker in the dark OR that can conceal a gun-wielding lurker in the dark! That is why we can only use devices & apps on them that have, instead of the eye-straining red on black true night mode theme, a Dark themed day mode that has more muted white text on black backgrounds & normal pictures when & if any appear - thus, it is NOT just a reverse contrast or color negative mode of the Bright theme! At least as many apps are being released today by devs who recognize this critical & life-saving issue by offering both bright & dark themes in their apps upon 1st launch as apps that only offer bright theme by devs who laugh off the needs of night-shift employees' & their potential safety, as well as the safety of the citizens those employees are meant to protect by seeing predators in the dark OR by not mistaking innocent citizens as predators in the dark & shooting them as regularly happens, or those same devs who fail to even consider WHY both bright AND dark themes are vital in apps. It is a matter of laziness, inconsiderateness, belittling of real-life safety, and sheer, out-right stupidity to ever NOT offer BOTH Dark & Light themes to ALL apps from this moment forward whether they already offer a true Night Mode Theme or a so-called Full Colored Neutral Theme if not to help & even protect your users & the non-using populace alike then for the purely self-serving reason that this is a 24-hour waking, working, playing, living world & we its people are starting to both vocally & silently starting to stand up for our equal rights around the clock through not just our ratings & reviews but by ending our support of, & stopping buying from, & uninstalling apps by the makers & sellers & developers of products that ignore our NEEDS because you ALL have growing numbers of competitors who are hungry for your customers & who are no longer cheap knock-offs but are quality producers of equal products that are superior to yours in that they go the extra mile by not taking their clientele for granted & instead service all the people from every walk of life & time of the CLOCK rather than just the day anymore.
