回復待ちです→追記

天文好きなのでフルアクセスにしました。
今日、ウィジェットに表示されなくなり、アプリ起動を試みるも他の方が仰るようにタイトル画面から進みません。
しばらく回復を待ってみます。

【追記】
翌日になったら、ウィジェットにも読み込みされ、アプリも起動できるようになっていました。とりあえず良かったです。

星座絵デタラメ インチキアプリ

綺麗でデタラメな星座絵で正しい星空観察の知識をめちゃくちゃにしているStarWalkシリーズが、またまたストーリーで紹介されていますのでご注意を。

ストーリーのカバー絵に「わし座」が出ていますが、この星座絵からしてデタラメ。この絵の右の翼の先っぽの星は「デネブ エル オカブ」と出てきます。デネブとは尻尾という意味…つまりわしの尻尾の星なのでそう呼ばれます。翼の先の星がそういう名前なんておかしいですよね? デタラメなのはキラキラしている星座絵の向きです。このように無作為にどの星座を見てもまず間違いを見つけられます。

このアプリで星の知識を自慢だって?
このアプリで星座を覚えたら皆にバカにされますよ。使っちゃいけない嘘つきアプリ。星座絵は全部見直して作り直しが必要なめちゃくちゃアプリです。

星座と星は正しいです。 これが主なものです。星座の画像には厳密な規則はありません。 それらには多くのバリエーションがあります。

有料版を購入したにも関わらず

有料版を購入したにも関わらず有料コンテンツが見れない。
コンテンツの購入画面で「抽出」と出るが、それ以上進まず、ボタンを押しても反応しない。
仕方なく再インストールしたら広告が表示される上に復元もできない。 販売元のサポートにメールをしても返ってこない。

このアプリはこの無料版だけで楽しんだ方が良いです。お金を払うとそんな上にストレスも貯まります。
