    The data powering this app is astounding. It takes a while to figure out the buttons and modes to view this immensely rich app, but once you're done figuring it out... The experience is beautiful. This is the first app that I'm actually considering getting the premium upgrade. It's a well executed, though some improvements in the navigation will enhance this app further.

    Interesting app that had potential but fails to deliver. I was hoping for a more complete set of ephemeris features but this app only really provides sunrise, sunset, and length of day. The UI is pretty confusing and hard to use. My preference in SkyMap for night sky orientation and then a simple weather app for sunrise and sunset. When this app gets a real ephemeris calculation, then it'll be gold.

    I purchased this app about two years ago, SI I have seen many changes. This app has a lot of potential, but there are design decisions that detract from the experience. Please! Change the star shapes to something useful! Those diffraction spikes are huge and make everything difficult to read.

    Like user Gustavo said, there are several bugs. The hint pop up tells you to tap what looks like a refresh button to enable the point to sky feature, but it doesn't work. Tapping the telescope button over and over seems to activate the point to sky feature, but only randomly. This feature was the main reason for choosing the app. Also, the alignment of what you see in the app, and what you see in the sky with your naked eye, seem to be shifted to the left. They do not line up. If the non responsiveness and accuracy of the point to sky feature, the lower left info box that won't go away and the scrolling issues can be addressed, this will be a REALLY NICE app!
