This is the app I was looking for quite some time. A perfect companion when not using a goto telescope and do no want to carry a laptop to run Stellarium. It is exactly as i wanted it,no AR graphics and animation and star art..just show me where a planet is at the moment so that I can point my telescope. Perfect! simple and to the point.

This app used to work and with only a small problem with defaulting to Arizona. Since the last update, however it can no longer install, I just get a-504 error message.
