New Update Issue

An absolutely amazing app, I use the free version and I have no complaints. But it just got updated to the latest version and it doesn’t work anymore? The app crashes after being stuck on the black screen with the compass and alignment option on my iPhone 6. Please fix this, I’m looking forward to stargazing again!

Developer Response ,

Fantastic and Mysterious!

Overall a fantastic application to use. I feel like I am in my own fantasyy world. It is really amazing. But I am really curious to know how this works. How is it programmed and also if a new celestial body is found in the universe will it be able to show that!?

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review. We use a lot of sophisticated technology within iPhone to make this work. We use the many sensors available and we have some great graphic designers. Happy stargazing! 🌌
