Awesome app!

It’s design beauty is unparalleled by any other astronomy app. Easy layout and a real pleasure to use. Definitely one of the best apps available. Thanks for putting so much effort into design and features! It would be great to see in future updates an equatorial grid to assist with using a telescope. Once again you guys are awesome!

Good, though have some requests

Pretty amazing, though i would like the option to upscale the font size of the stars when viewing. I can zoom to a part of sky to clarify the objects, but names of stars auto shrink / scale small again, gah my eyes need a magnifier on my iphone6. And. Can we get some alternative star names mode- eg australian indigenous stories.. eg where is the emu? - and relate that to scientific names for comparison. Also there are common colloquial names that would also help... ‘the pointers’ the ‘southern cross’.... crux... for beginners learning ... thanks for the great work so far.

It takes really long to load

Why does it take long to load??? I haven’t even had a chance to get into the app I’ve been waiting for over an hour for it to load I’m wondering if it’s an update or data loading can you please check the servers to see if it’s either my phone or the app loading I’ll give it four stars because it looks like a good app but I just can’t load into it.
