App Reviews

  • Love this app, definitely needs fixing.

    By chuckleworth
    This app made it so much easier for me to teach myself about the night sky, but having to manually calibrate it every. single. time. I open. the app. is beyond frustrating. At the very least, allow us to save the manual location if your auto function is going to be as off as it is. Please update the app to incorporate this because the app is practically unusable without having the sun or moon in sight to calibrate with.
  • How fun it is

    In just minutes from the first time use, it brought awe and wonder in me and kids. Very intuitive and easy to use. Superb graphics and smooth movements. Keep up the great work!!
  • Absolutely groovy app

    By Ur2litup
    I absolutely dig this app. My only dilemma from enjoying it better consists of me learning how to use the darned app. Until that happens I’ll just enjoy watching how badly we’ve littered-up space. Other than that, it is really a very groovy app. RAMJr

    Who new that there was so much space junk! That revel alone would give it four stars. Aside from that, I learn something new each time I open the app. One of my favorites, thank you!
