Ratings and Reviews
The Night Sky V3 for os10
I purchased this app to aligh my new telescope to the night sky.
However it only comes up with a blank screen and background music,
On contacting icandi they have suggested I up grade the os to seira.
Are they sayiing their app is incompatible with os 10.9!!!
When I first purchased this app. I was very disappointed and wrote a scathing review. The app. has been improved progressively since then and as the latest version is so improved I have deleted my previous comments; I would now recommend it without reservation. Red screen is a good idea for those using it when observing at night as it will not affect night vision. Objects have information available (and this was a suggestion of mine, but I'm sure others would have said it too). Well done to the designers for taking criticism and acting on it.
Just as amazing as iPhone
I got this app on my iPhone and its great to be able to see everything in full screen. Amazing the way I can see what's above any country in the world! And breathtaking music. If you get this be sure to run it full screen as that's the best way to use it. Highly recommended.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
