    The new star shapes are annoying, especially when zoomed out. It would be great to be able to unselect objects, so that huge object details box is not present taking so much space in the screen.

    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!
