Ratings and Reviews
Introduce the youngsters to the universe
Now they know where the big & Little Dipper. Is?? The North Star? Leo? Orion? The speed limit of 186,000 MPSecond.
If I could ask for my money back I would. When I initiate the app, it consistently shows the west sky no matter what position I'm holding my iPad. If I turn my iPad the figures move, but if I point my computer at a particular constellation or even the moon. It doesn't show that particular part of the sky. There are no directions; I assumed the app would be intuitive. Either I'm missing something or the app is poor. I'm leaning toward the latter conclusion.
