Good but....

I like this app but, it is a bit "off." When I point it to the North it shows East or West. It is great but is in need of an update.

fantastic promise, but needs a few fixes

I can't wait for this app to be refined a bit! Right now, the view is 90 degrees off on my surface rt - it says west is south. Also, the augmented reality is an awesome idea, but doesn't really do anything since it only uses my front-facing camera (at least, I couldn't see any way to select the rear camera). I'll keep it installed with the hopes that it gets updated quickly, as everything else is really quite nice. Edit: timed trial is too limiting-I can't get updates to know when it's fixed!

Sky is reversed in compass mode

When the app is placed in compass mode the sky is reversed. When pointing the surface north the screen shows the Southern horizon, etc.there does not appear a means to calibrate. not bad otherwise.

Crashes always

I use a Surface RT with Win 8.1 I don't recall having a problem with this program a year and a half go. Unfortunately, it crashes every time and won't stay open. I'll uninstall it if there is no solution.

App has serious problems

The app keeps crashing and having problems when trying to access the menu.

Rudimentary App

Don't waste your time with this one, you are better off with a paper sky chart. Very slow, few details, inaccurate rotation (it was showing west while pointed north). I wish I could get my money back.

disappointed

the app shows one star in a constellation, I tried to click on other stars but it will only reference ONE. very disappointed. I am removing app.

Continuously gets direction screwed up

Reverses direction N is S E is W etc.... On Microsoft surface rt.

Very responsive

But like the other reviewers called out, the compass is roughly 90 degrees off on my Surface RT. I really like the live tile for the app - shows upcoming events

Star Program with Nonfunctional Compass?

Got the iPad and Surface app running right next to each other. Both about the same except the Surface version is 90 degrees off to the East. That seems like a pretty fundamental flaw, although most Surface apps seem to have the same issue. Makes the entire Surface ecology look profoundly amateur. Suggest someone bludgeon the 'responsible party' until they correct this astounding error if Surface apps are going to survive.
