Sky Map

This astrological viewer upgrade is excellent!!! Intense!!! Spatial physicality is worth long minutes of study!!! The more I se this program; I learn more of the seen universe. Thank you for making such an excellent program. Very close to viewing with the Hubbell Spatial Scope!

Can't beat it because its free and informative

There are settings that make it even more interesting plus the paid for version will allow further customization. GREAT!

Great Astronomy app

Very easy to use. Great app for Win8 systems. I do not have a touch screen, but it is still very easy to view and move around in with a mouse.

Ranch

I LOVE this app, but there needs to be an alternate method of setting the client LOCATION... i.e. by zip code. My GPS is not working.

Cannot open, keeps crashing

Had to uninstall. After multiple attempts to open, reinstall, and restart, it just opens for a few seconds and crashes. Deleted until there is a fix. (Using Samsung Slate with Windows 8)

Advertismente

This may work. But I cannot tolerate the huge ever-present advertisement at the bottom of the screen. I will keep searching for an app that does exactly this, but with no advertisement.

Easy to see nice work - real soon

I haven't used this much. However, with that being the case, I was able to get a whole lot out of this software just on instinct and standard type mouse work. Well done!
