    Very nice astronomical app for an extremely reasonable price !! The only flaw I've noticed is that when zoomed in on an object, the data panel sometimes blocks your view of the object (try it with Saturn to see what I'm referring to). Overall, a very useful app and WELL worth the measly $.99 !! 😃

    Awkward to use.

    I really like this app. Out is pretty accurate from what I can tell. I do have some calibration issues however (reason for 4 star and not 5). I am not sure if it is because of my area or what. Thanks for making it. Keep it up. 😉

    This Is. A great app but I wish the compass would work on the Nokia Lumia 635 for Windows 8.1 but overall the graphics are great

    After a few seconds it becomes frozen.

    Fantastic app, realm enjoying the responsiveness of the augmented reality mode! Would love to have an option to change the time instance you are looking at though, for astrophotography purposes when planning the shot I'd like to know where the milky way is in 3 hours for example!

    Love this app! I'll give it 5 stars if you can add the ISS and satellites!
