Ratings and Reviews
It's 180degrees out
The app is showing me the universe in reverse its 180degrees out.
North and south are reversed so I'm sure it's something I should be able to correct but it's not letting me.
Is this something iPhone related? I have a 5s.
Manual setting doesn't move at all and auto setting gives me the reverse view... I have even set the Center view point on the moon and got the 180 reverse...
Great astronomy app
A great astronomy app. Worth paying for if you enjoy exploring out universe.
So detailed! Hubble? Intl Station to top it all! Love following the sun at night on the other side of the planet. Funny how they made up zodiacal from nothing at all! One of my favourite app of all time!
