Mr Laforge Beam me up!

This is a good app, and especially for those that are just learning to navigate the night sky. For those people, it would be a good idea to show not only the ecliptic, but also the celestial equator because there are a lot of students of astronomy that don't realize that there is a celestial equator. In the words of Jean Luc Piccard 'MAKE IT SO!'

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!

Its okay, functional but basic

Pros: Uses your location and time to actively show you the sky in your region, search tool helps you locate objects in the sky Cons: no options or customization, no night mode, no accelerometer/compass use for pointing at the sky Great app, like the twinkling effect, labels are easy to read, and constellation images are nice

Lacking

Settings do not persist,need to set them each time you open the app. Eccliptic not shomn!

A Good app, but not as good as my WP Favorite

Works well on my Surface. Please add point to sky like in Windows Phone version.

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.

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.
