What's New in Version 1.7
iOS 7 Update
Was skeptical since it didn't have any reviews but the other apps had very poor reviews so I figured I'd give it a try. I love it. The lines connecting the constellations are thin and unobtrusive the stars are represented by their color which is awesome if your trying to figure out what the orange colored star above your house is. It will show you stars and planets in the Southern Hemisphere which is neat. As far as accuracy, it seems good to me. It's pretty much point and shoot. There is a way to move the screen manually with your finger instead of the screen following the way the phone is pointed but I haven't figured that out yet. The only thing that keep this from a 5 star rating is that the app doesn't provide you with the Messier (sp?) objects. I really hope they will do an update that provides those. Other wise this is the best $1.99 I've ever spent.
It is not a bad app, but could use some improvements. For $1.99 ... As long as it points at one in ten stars correctly .. you can't go wrong.
Needs menu and help from main window. Details when you click the most common objects (like planets, moons, major constellations, major nebulae and galaxies) would be nice. A freeze screen button would be nice so you can review without holding arms above head. A search interface with directional arrows to guide you to stars ... Just easy stuff and this s a $10 app instead do a $2 one.
The app works awesome, and it doesn't even need an active internet connection. Simple and interesting!
