Customer Reviews

Inaccurate piece of JUNK

Finally, after all this time, there's an update. Is anything really fixed? NO. It's still junk, and apparently the developer doesn't bother to read user comments. Deleting it once again.
My original review still stands:
...There are some things that could use improvement. First, there is a glaring error that needs to be fixed immediately- the name of the Saturnian moon is NOT "Lapetus", it is "iapetus", with a capital "i". This is an error that any amateur with any knowledge at all of astronomy SHOULD have spotted and corrected immediately. Secondly, I would like to see a way to speed up the zoom/flight to at least double speed. Finally, when the view is switched to orrery (perpendicular to orbital plane), there seems to be no way of switching back to the other view short of quitting the application and re-starting. Overall it's clunky, inaccurate, and counter-intuitive.
