    This would be a great App if you didn’t have to keep purchasing Add ons to make it functional. The same as a Star Walk but with different music
  • Where’s Wirtanen?

    Had info about the comet, but didn’t locate it properly even as we watched it. What’s the point?
  • Worst app ever.

    This thing is terrible. Waste of money. Free apps are way less frustrating.
  • Comet 46P wrong coordinates.

    You would expect after paying this much money for an app they would not have this level of inaccuracy for a popular object that is in the news this weekend. I’ll make it a point to not pay for this app ever again. I can rely on free apps for this substandard level of accuracy.

    The thing is hard to turn on for the live sky. The old version was easy

    I have bought different star gazing apps and I have not been able to calibrate the apps, I’ve tried the figure 8 multiple times, to no avail, if there is another system or whatever there might be all help would be appreciated. No matter which direction I’m facing it will show a northern sky
  • Practically perfect for iOS!

    You buy the app. And if you actually want to use it you have to keep paying. Forget it
