Amazing App!!! Highly Recommend!
Loved this app from the moment I got it! Recently boosted my adoration when I used it during a Cruise to the Bahamas. Super accurate and spot on. Love the fact that it shows u things below the horizon line and also allows u to search by solar system, stars or constellations. I don't know what that little icon on the bottom left is but the app crashes whenever I touch it. You guys might want to fix that. But I still give it 5 stars. If that icon does something more impressive, you people deserve a medal, or a 6 pack or a night out at the strip club. Thanks for this!!!
This program is very easy to use and unbelievably accurate!
I'd like an option for bigger labels as I have to tap two times with three fingers to read what stars are which.
I'd also ask for a "night mode" even though I have f.lux which lowers the color temperature of the screen at night and looks amazing, a red mode would make it even better, although the blue color is beautiful by default!
Thank you for this wonderful program!
Very cool app
Very cool app! At first, I thought it might work by using the device's camera to identify the stars, but now I see that it uses the built-in gyroscope and compass to line things up. I ventured out tonight in the cold in my pajamas to test it out and I found that, once my iPad got it's bearings, things lined up pretty well with the display on the screen; Jupiter, the third brightest object in the sky, was easily identifiable.
