Almost surreal

Man, best wishes for you both, happy anniversary.

Do you know what would make it a 5-star app? If you could add references to the mapping, so we could get facts and information and still hi-res pics of the stars, constellations and galaxies. The deep space project is a nice touch and would love to get more info about it when I touch it. Get info and reference for it and it will be hard to beat. As, it is, it is very good. But it can be amazing. Surreal feeling of the sky and the glowing stars are just so beautiful. Nice work anyway.

Pretty good

The controls are confusing. This, like other astronomy apps, try to do way too much for you. As soon as you start up the app, it takes you a ride thru the sky, where a combo of device movement, and finger navigation, leaving you questioning where up and down are at. You never get to go into "let me navigate exactly where I want to go, and let me spin the sky the way I WANT TO". The downside of that is that sometimes the North Star is to the top, bottom, right and left. And you are left guessing what the stars will appear like, when you go outside.

I've given up on this app, because when I take it outside, it never lines up, and I am given ZERO control over CORRECTING the star map, to match the actual night sky. I understand the desire to do neet things for users, but when I have a star chart, I can turn it to match what I am looking at, not an option here.

Awesome for me (novice)

I don’t do much in terms of astronomy (yet) but would love to learn and will get a telescope when I actually have time. But this app is awesome for helping to visualize the location of various planetary bodies and constellations in the relation to our planet (actually your current location on the planet). Very cool to know where things are and to see what stars your looking at in the night sky if you have very limited knowledge.
