Handy tool

I like the app. It does well. The latest update doesn't seen to pull weather forecasts. Wish it would keep measurements longer or when restored to a new phone.

App gives unreliable readings, website is poor

I had used this at home in Bortle class 6 area and the readings seemed reasonable. Then I took it to a dark site, listed as one of the darkest areas in the continental US. I got multiple failures from the app, and finally it gave me a reading of bright suburban sky. At this point I gave up. I do not believe this app is trustworthy

Is joke, no? Worth every penny of the free price, and no more.

There are no instructions, and both the “developer website” and “support” links take you to an essentially content-less map full of dots.

The first time I ran it it responded “Invalid, try again.” No explanation.

The second time... “Too dark for device.”


Developer Response ,

Well, the app is not a joke. The web site is already filled with almost 40.000 measurements. Cannot be that bad and good to know that this app is free because there is no money involved. Thanks
