Don't buy!! Hasn't been updated in 3 YEARS!
One star is generous!! Was so disappointed to see this app has not been updated in 3 years. My kids were very anxious to watch the meteor shower this evening---all of us were disappointed to see this app is so out of date. I want my $$ back!!!
Neat idea but really that far out of date and to charge
I feel robbed I just seen it and knew this event was coming up so I bought it and now to find that it is old it is disappointing!!!
I thought this was an update to the app released a few years back. WRONG. It is now THREE YEARS out of date and only tells you the shower has ended (in 2009). Want my money back, too.
