I use this application frequently to find and identify constellations. It's fairly intuitive to use and more powerful than I would have expected from a phone app. I've recommended it to many of my friends.More
Helpful and easy to use!More
Best sky map app on Windows Phone. Would love to see visible satellites (ISS, etc.) added, a la "Space Junk" on Android. Thanks for a great app.More
Love it... Can't say enough.More
I like the app. Had it for several years. Calibration always seems slightly off though.More
My specific phone is not capable of utilizing the left /right tracking feature but does allow the vertical (or up/down) feature. However that is only because of my phone. It is relatively simple to use and has great features besides the tracking. You can dim out the amount of stars in the virtual sky so as to match what you see for your location based on ambient light such as city light interference or places with little light interference like mountainous areas or the like. You can also have the artist overlay for the constellations or disable it. It has helped me find several planets so I could set my telescope to it. If your phone is limited like mine just know the general direction you want to view a star at and drag left or right to that area. Now move your phone up and down until the "sight or bulls eye dot" is in line with what you want. You can then touch the object on screen to get information about that star or planet. It's a real nice app. You won't be disappointed.More
I am so glad I bought this app for windows phone 7, and now with 7.5/mango and Now after version 2.0 the app is Awesome. A must buy. [Update] I really Love this App and I really hope it can make it to Windows 8 for Tablets. The App Keeps Getting better. Great work keep up the Awesome work. [Update 2] Would be Awesome if you added satellites to the App. [Update3] We need this app to be a universal app.More
