The new UI is a great improvement from the old view. It's also quite accurate. 5 stars.
Good companion to my telescope
I own a telescope (Celestron Nexstar 8SE) that requires some effort to assemble and calibrate before I can use it. I've used various apps to assist me in planning a night out with me telescope. This is one of the better ones. It's very fast even on my iPhone 5, there aren't a lot of graphics to load, so it's easy on the battery and it works without an Internet connection. Also it has a pretty large catalogue of objects. Looking forward to updates that keep it lightweight
Loaded it twice, but it doesn't work! It access's my time and location, yet during the day, it tells me the sun has not yet risen. Same with moon and planets. WTF? It can't even utilize the simple gps? Terrible!
But the ads work great!!
