Oh My Gay Stars – Gay Marriage in the US
By Steven Bolin
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Oh My Gay Stars brings you an easy and attractive way to display a list of states that have legalized same sex marriage in the U.S.
The app is simply an image of the flag of the United States. Based on the premise that the 50 stars of the flag represent the 50 states, the app will only display a star for each state that allows for gay marriage.
As a state legalizes same sex marriage, another star is added to the blue star field. On the flipside of the app, you’ll find a list of the states’ names and the date marriage was legalized.
The state count is pulled from an external feed, so it is always up-to-date.
Show your support for legalized marriage in the United States by downloading and sharing Oh My Gay Stars.

app doesn't work. waste of time.
Wrong star number, wrong dates, wrong order. No counter.
As of today, 1/5/15, the app shows 40 stars, even though only 35 states allow marriage.
Rulings in Michigan and Kentucky were reversed. Arkansas rulings are stayed until the Supreme Court hears the case. Same-sex marriage rights are not granted to the entire state of Missouri. Florida marriages don't begin until tomorrow. None of these states should be on the list right now.
Even the dates are wrong, some are the day of court decisions, and some such as Florsia show the date marriages begin. Make up your mind.
This app should check it's numbers with Wikipedia, HRC, or freedomtomarry.org instead of pulling them out of a hat.
Also, what on earth order are these stars are being put on this flag?
If you google "Which star is which state" you will see that almost everyone agrees the order of the stars represent when each state joined the Union.
Delaware should be the first star, and Alaska and Hawaii should be the last stars. These should all three be filled and white as of this review.
I also emailed the author suggesting that a counter to be added to show the total number of states with marriage equality, but yet he never responded and updated the app anyway without including my suggestion.
This app isnt very fun to use if it doesn't include some kind of indicator of progress other than just looking at a flag of jumbled up stars.
Like another reviewer says, don't waste your time. This app is inaccurate and seriously lacking.
I've used this thing since day one, been waiting for this day please update:) 06/25/15
