Customer Reviews

Was Perfect.

The first version Taught me more in 5 minutes about the constellations and satellites than 5 years in the Boy Scouts.
WAS Just a perfect app. Not to mention how cheap it was. I would have paid a little more to keep it the way it was.
The revision is absolute garbage. I used to show everyone the app, now I try to and it won't work. The splash screen annoys. I bought the app. I don't need to be sold every time I open it with an animation. Biggest problem for me is that the app seems to have a hard time finding the right compass heading. It is almost always wrong now. I don't even care about the incessant begging for an upgrade. But if it can't point in the right direction we're fighting a losing battle.
Sorry for the rant, but you guys took a literally perfect app and fouled it up.

Too many bugs

I used to love this app when I first installed it. Sadly it has many issues these days:
1) the information in the "today" notification view is always given in Celsius, even though the app itself correctly respects my setting to use F
2) heading does not always seem correct
3) watch the "all new" splash screen on every launch
4) need to restore purchases on every launch, and then get two polyps saying they've been restored
5) location on the globe view is correct, but the stargazing weather is always for California (I am in Washington)
6) I get pop-ups asking for a review (I think) but I'm not sure because they are in German

There does not seem to be a way to leave feedback for the developers except for here?

At first glance it appears that the developer has got some new apps. Maybe I am supposed to upgrade to a more actively supported version? It seems easier to just find a different app than decipher which version with which purchases actually works these days. Hard to trust an app that can't even get my location and display preferences right.

not helpful

I loved it when this app would see the star or planet in question. I recently wanted to know about some stars close to the moon but it couldn't find the moon. I manually pushed the data around, up and down until I found the moon and it then identified the adjacent stars. If I had not had the moon as a point of reference, the rest of the data was overwhelming and not specific to the object I was directing it to see. I thought it was something I was not understanding until I began to read comments from other users who were happier with the earlier version. At this time, it is not helpful.
