Cool little sky map app, but the sound/music failed after the first use. On a new iPhone 7 Plus, first app installed. Update: Very poorly designed GUI. The fine print instructions are impossible to read, unless you screencap and enlarge. The text is too dark to distinguish from the background.
The information is from wikipedia and not up to date eg Hubble.
I like it for the most part I just think they could give more or better info such a list of brightest stars or good objects to look at with a telescope.
Great app. Makes it easy to identify what I’m lookin at... and thru the search function guides me to features I’m lookin for! Ch
Loved this ap for years. Paid for this ap. There is no support. No way of contacting support. My screen in the ap is permanently locked on Draco. Cannot move and scan. Have tried to recalibrate. Have reset defaults. Have uninstalled and reinstalled. Nothing works. Should be able to contact support through the ap. Very disappointed
More detail than I thought it would be. Love it. Even the most basic knowledge that I have has been enhanced by this app
I have to go through the next life family family I am so excited to have family and my life I am so excited to have family.
First off, I’m revising my review yesterday after I bought another sky app and it also was frozen in place and my iPhone compass was also frozen. This app is very enjoyable and informative. Well worth the money I paid for it. If you have freezing issues, meaning the app is stuck in one location, check your phone compass. If that is also frozen, check your phone case. If it has any component that is magnetic (mine did from the snapping back), try taking it off. It fixed the freezing issue. If it still freezes, then I’d write a review to inform others.
This app is really great! I love being able to see all planets and star’s name! I only wish it would give us a little more information on planets, the sun maybe some important stars.. i don’t know maybe im asking too much! I just like space things! Lol
Very helpful for identifying what you see in the night sky!!
