What's New in Version 5.0
New feature: Quick Find provides a simple way to browse and explore the constellations, planets and Messier objects.
I like the new search feature. Just what I wanted!
I use this app to help me find things to look at with my telescope. I am new to the telescope viewing but have been using this app for learning for awhile now. Have had no problems with using it. It has loads of info on the selected object. There are many settings so you can set to see objects you want to search for at a particular time instead of being overloaded with too many objects.
I love this app. It shows the stars twinkling, gives facts about the galaxy. My kids enjoy it as well. Easy to navigate. Thank you!!
This is a great app and tool. It's a great way to show people vaguely interested in the night sky how incredible it is!
