I purchased this app as my interest towards to the skies and I really liked it but since the last update I do not often use it because for example if I search for the Moon I do not get the rise time as long as I do not point at it. Sometimes I just wish not to update anything...

This app is just out of this world “Pardon the Pun” it’s great for the beginner who is just starting out on this great hobby and it’s backed up with all the information you need and the background music gives you the feeling of being amongst the stars and planets, it’s great to have all this information at your fingertips and the beauty of it is you don’t have to go out in the cold to view it. On here you don’t get any cloudy nights

Really could do with the compass knowing which way is which every time I fire up the app. When I’m at home I know which way is which but if I’m out & about it’s a pain. Other than that it’s a great app!

I’m on holiday in Grenada and curious about the stars in the sky. This APP is terrible. It has no options to turn off features. Trying to understand what star I’m looking st but can’t find it because of all the silly graphics. DO NOT BUY THIS. WASTE OF MONEY

For some odd reason, the app shows obscure NGC objects by default, but not the Messier objects that are visible in nearly any telescope. You have to manually enter an object’s name to display it. It would be fantastic if the app had the Messier objects always displayed, or an option to do so.

My 4 year old grandson has recently discovered space. Nothing makes you the Cool Gramma like being able to help him find his favorite planets. Thanks for making Gramma cool again!

Galileo and Newton, Brahe and Copernicus would be beside themselves seeing all you have included in your app. Makes superb use of modern technology to access the wonders of a starlit sky. What a treat!

This app is amazing! It reminds me of Virtual Reality because you can see the whole sky even when you are sitting in your bedroom!

If you propose to speak, always ask yourself, is it true, is it necessary, is it kind.
