What's New in Version 4.0.1
Minor bug fixes.
I never review apps. Just don't find it necessary.
I've always lamented the fact that I can't read the sky like history's coolest men could. I know what the moon looks like. That's about it. So I figured I'd see what was available to help me know what the hell is going on in the night sky.
This app is more that I could have dreamed of. I point my phone up in the air and BOOM. I know what I'm looking at. The app is like having Galileo in my pocket. Or Carl Sagan in my phone. It's that good.
I just came back from a trip to Joshua tree California and this app worked wonderful I was able to know exactly what I was looking at in the sky, both day and night I highly recommend purchasing this app. Artwork is beautiful and the settings are very simple.
And the more and more I use this app I fall deeper in love if I had to choose only one app to keep on my phone this one is it. I would gladly trade in all others to keep this app.
Wonderful and Useful
I originally downloaded this app on my iPod touch. Now i use it on my iPhone 5 and love the point and search feature. I love the options and features- especially the red to preserve night vision. I continue to use this handy app whenever I'm stargazing!
