great graphics, lots of fun!
I love the graphic for each planet - very nice! My favorite quick references are the Visibility List and the Spinning Globe. I love tilting it to see the Arctic or Antarctic in full. I check this app nearly every day!
My only wish is that they would include Pluto. (A so-called 'dwarf' planet is still a planet!) I realize it would be prohibitive to include all the 'dwarf' planets, but Pluto has a special place in the hearts of many people, worldwide. It would be very meaninful to me, and to others, if they would include it with the other planets in this app.
I love it
After having this app for over a year, it became my go to guide for "what is that bright star?" answers. In the last year I have learned so much about the night sky with this app. I can somewhat navigate my way around just by looking up now.
Allways remember that couriosity should never be wasted! For that I recommend this app for anyone learning/studying or just for the quick reference.
Exactly what I wanted!
I got so excited about this app that I was too quick to review it!
Not only is this app easy to use and nice to look at, it has a lot of little bonuses that are both functional and entertaining (3D rotating image maps of all planets= wow). This app is clearly a labor of love. Absolutely worth having on your phone.
