3/8/2014I like this one better than the other app, sky map. Its more polished, easier to read UI. This is a handy app to have if you don't have a GoTo mount or a laptop with Stellarium. Also a great way to learn the skies if you just want to look up and observe. Wish it could track the ISS too.

2/4/2014Great app! I just don't like the splash screen.
2/1/2014Pretty shitty since AR only works,for 30seconds, unlike SkyMap.
1/26/2014The star chart is great with one flaw. No tracking of comets when they come through the lower solar system. That would be really nice!
