Pretty to look at but a little dumb
Like other reviewers pointed out, the moon is on the incorrect side of Earth in relation to its correct position in the night sky. I only read the first page of reviews but has anyone else noticed Venus' rotation direction is wrong? It's correctly shown revolving in prograde like all the other planets but it's also shown spinning prograde when in reality it spins in retrograde. If you tap on the information for Venus, the arrows for its spin direction are also incorrectly showing the prograde rotation. The numerical stats give its rotation period as a negative number... Which is correct for being in retrograde but I doubt many people would pick up on that and instead assume a wrong rotation direction based off the more obvious visual information.
Could be Better
The graphics are good, but the Moon is currently on the wrong side of Earth. It is currently a New Moon, so the Moon should be between us and the Sun. The controls are much too small on my iPad to read or touch accurately and this make it very frustrating. I like that it's in the landscape orientation, but it will not rotate around if I have the iPad the other way. This is also frustrating, because my iPad sits permanently (snapped into) in a keyboard that does not give me the option of using the keyboard as my lap stand. Please improve this application so that is it accurate and easy to use, because it's not useful for education if the planets and moons are not in their proper positions.
Inaccurate time, could be fixed for everybody
I'm in the Eastern U.S, and I know that not everybody is, but when it's currently 7:30 PM, and the screen showed the screen as if it were 1 AM. I checked the clock on the app, and it showed, '19:30:00'. Extremely annoying, lost a star.
But you could get that star back by showing an option in which you can tap on a 'settings' option next to the time, and use that to report bugs, and give an option in the same page where you can set where you currently are. Do that, and it'll be the best app ever! Thanks for reading!
