Ratings and Reviews
I would say that this app is very easy to use. It has a very simple concept and it works very well for iOS users. However, I believe that the graphics could be better they seem a little underdeveloped. I do like the fact that if you click the plants it tells you when they are visible and gives a array of facts on the planets. In that feature is so nice that I wish they did the same for the constellations. I feel as if the globe feature is also underdeveloped’ if they could include some information on the globe tab than it would be great.
Awesome app right out of the box!
I was tired of seeing expensive apps, huge downloads and apps with trial ware that promised me the moon but delivered a paywall or were extremely large downloads. I love this app. It was easy to setup as it knew my location, time zone and even got my compass orientation instantly to tell me which planets I was seeing. I love the “visibility” tab to quickly check when they are visible and the “unaided eye” setting which was on by default so I knew exactly what I was looking at. For example, Venus was just about to set right after sunset, and there were two other bright planets then the moon, but I wasn’t 100% sure which ones. Instantly I moved my phone up to the heavens and saw that it was Jupiter and Saturn, then of course the moon, following Venus. Even the phase of the moon was shown. Nicely done!!
Not a good review
This is not acurate, the planets are not in the place where they really are in the sky. I know this because at around 8:00 P.M I had gone outside and looked in the sky with the tele scope I got for Christmas . The apps star walk and solar walk are awesome and actually show a lot more than this . They show that in the actual apps the planets are in the right spots. It said on here that the moon was right above me in the sky but that was wrong . I just got in my house and the moon hadn’t been in the sky above me. All the planets were also wrong, the only planets in the sky are Uranus and I can’t even see that because it’s so down. App not good and doesn’t have right things. Please make this app better and more educational and get ideas from other apps and videos thank you and please MAKE IT BETTER . Sincerely Mystery cat
