Great app, works well

The kids and I love this app and have used it several times for identifying stars. The movement is smooth and. The the way the stars fade in and out as you scroll keeping the most important features visible and uncluttered. I would have given it 5 stars if it showed the milky way. As a photographer this would really help with the night shots.

Simple, perfect. Probably my favourite non-essential app. Helps me understand the universe in which we live. Thank you to those who made it.
