What's New in Version 4.9
- Minor bugs corrected
- Asteroids downloads
Needs fixing!! Keeps saying "Cannot connect to Store"!
The developer needs to eliminate this bug! It's been known about for months; if not a year! Here's the issue.
An irritating prompt now appears each time the app is started. It keeps saying "Cannot connect to Store"!
It means the Starmap Store, yet it will NOT let us download any of the Starmap Media tours, even though each of them is distinctly labeled FREE!
There is NO user error. Wifi is on; in-app purchases are, too. The app also readily updates satellites and comets without any problem, so why this?!
The app says to contact support, but the Developer's Website link here is BROKEN!
What gives? Starmap Pro remains one of the best astronomy apps, but this sort of bug is tres disappointing!
There shouldn't be such a prompt and the promised FREE media downloads should work.
I purchased the new version, Starmap2, but that is a major step back with a poor display, limited customization, and serious flaws. It also dropped many of the great features of Starmap Pro such as the scrolling photos, easy pop up info, and a better sky view. So, Starmap Pro remains the better app.
This is a phenomenal app rich with features. I cannot say enough about the incredible number of features and the amount of information available in this app. It does everything you could ask for.
No longer supported!?
This was the best iDevice planetarium app out there. Sadly it seems to have been relegated to the past for more profit via the 'squared' version. This now crashes on my 6S after doing anything related to the asteroid database and you can no longer click on objects to get more info. So sad...
