Incredible Must Have
I first got this app when it was released, and used it frequently for reference and observational identification, since then it's developers have only improved upon the initial program. The intuitive user interface and array of great features makes this app a must have for anyone interested in stargazing. The educational information makes it a great gift for the little astronomer in the family.
A great app. It's nice to see my kids fight over my phone for an education app as opposed to the usual mindless games they want to play. Well done!
Long time user
Simply awesome app! I've used this app since it was released and continue to appreciate its capabilities.
