Pluto Info Out Of Date

This is one of my favorite apps. I use it almost every day and have recommended it to many others. I particularly enjoy the information about the various objects. I was a little disappointed today when I noticed the out of date info for Pluto. It mentions that no space vehicle has visited Pluto yet but that New Horizons is on its way. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before the app is updated but thought it would have been by now. Maybe the next app will include a visual of the moon orbits for each planet. If not that, then the location of all NASA's non-orbital exploration vehicles in our solar system (not that many left) or the addition of comets as they fly through the solar system. Nevertheless, I love the app -- especially the addition of space vehicle debris. It's fascinating, fun, edifying and I look forward to the next upgrade.

Outstanding app

While other reviews are from people more into astronomy and care about the details, my views are primarily from the point of identifying objects. Back when I started viewing the skies, I would carry a skymap for the day, time and location. I still stand by the traditional method as it taught me how to identify objects in the skies and navigate the night sky, this app makes it way easier. Now I give it to my 3 year old and let him figure out the sky for himself. They get excited locating new objects and we come back home and look for information on our sightings. I love the augmented reality as it allows me to get a feel of where the celestial object is located and makes it easier for me to explain that we are all in motion.

I love it, but the calibration is off...

If I wrote this a couple of months ago, I would have given 5 stars. However, about a month ago, the automatic calibration decided to stop working properly. Sometimes it's just a little off, sometimes it tells me it's noon at midnight. Other than that, I love this app. I really enjoy perusing the cosmos from my backyard. On occasion, if I find something really interesting, I'll look through my binoculars to see if it's visible. If it is, I break out the telescope to have a better look. Other times, if something can't be seen very well, I'll just Google it and enjoy the natural art that is a nebula. I highly recommend this app for anyone who's just a little curious, or even serious star-gazers, and anyone in between.
