Gorgeous !

Love this app for the many features it has and the twinkle of the stars make it appealing. Used the FREE version for several months and found it was 'enough' for me...but I still wanted to support the developers, so I purchased.

Responsive but quirky

Unlike many desktop computer star chart programs, this one is simple with fluid fast response even on my aging laptop. However, when using a mouse to navigate, the map motion loses alignment with the mouse when the time is shifted away from the present. It would be a major plus to show the ecliptic as well.

Hard to like

This is a nice program to look at, but is not accurate. When I am facing south, the program says that I am facing east. Since I want to use the program to see what the sky looks like at different times of the day and night, this is hard to use as it is. I don't think this problem has to do with my tablet, because I have a map program that pin-points me on the map where ever I am. If it wasn't for this problem, this program would work well for me.

Ra / Dec

No number designations for TIME / Degrees in RA & DEC. App would have more usefulness if these data were included.

Just as magnificent, fun and informative as on Windows Phone....but easier and bigger....and especially great on a Windows 8 tablet!

Great app, but...

My latitude and longitude are correct, but when I face East the app displays South. When I face South it displays East. Would really like to give it a 5 star but this is annoying.

SkyMap is OK, but the version on iPad includes satellites, which I think increases the value substantially over this version of SkyMap
