What's New in Version 0.83
New Retina 4-inch display support.
This app has help expand my children's viewpoint of the world well beyond just our neighborhood in a big way. We love matching the night stars with the app.
Difficult to align accurately
I can never get it to align itself to the sky, so it it always off a bit. It only locates Venus and Jupiter, but I'd like to locate the other 5 planets.
Graphics are awesome!
I have enjoyed this whole app. It really does a great job and is easy to use. Keep putting out additional great apps.p
