M+Stellar navigates you through the starry night sky. You can easily find out names of the stars, constellations and planets even without a planisphere. In conjunction with sensors such as electronic compass, inclinometer, accelerometer and GPS on your Windows 8 devices, M+Stellar displays the star chart just as actually viewed real-time, on site, and in the orientation of the device. No need to set the date and time, which is required with planispheres. User-friendly for everyone at any age, M+Stellar is an ultimate star watching tool at your fingertips, helpful as a mini star encyclopedia, or a pointer to currently visible planets. Realistic graphic shows the stars twinkling, the moon wax and wane, gradation of the twilight sky over the landscape, hazy glow of the milky way, along with the constellation lines/pictures whenever desired. Precise simulations are available for skies from 1900 to 2099, which means you can see what the sky was like on the day you were born!More

Very nice app
With all of the option switching available, one can configure the display nicely. Note that this app's direction was way off. I found it was not the app, but the compass in the surface. To correct this, download Asparion Compass+ from the MS app store and recalibrate.More
Graphics are ok, and feature set is good enough, but the real time option does not show the current time.More
Very nice star chart! Smooth performance. Time bug
Smooth performance on surface! works with point to sky and very easy to use options to enable/disable lots of view options. Nice night mode as well. 5 stars once the time is fixed, it has problems reflecting correct time for me. Its a day ahead it appears. If I hit current time the position of sun is still offMore
Pain on a tablet
Small 2 x 3 corner of screen with a side view of words, not like the picture.More
moon & star name sizes
there should be a separate setting for moon size ... maybe a setting for depict actual or relative moon size (with proper phasing of course). A slider to adjust star name font size would also be a plus.More
Works fine on Surface pro.More
Really nice interface, almost work perfectly
Two things: it defaults to a Japan location I guess, it should default to the local position if allowed by the user. The compass is off, not sure if it is a limitation in Surface of the program.More
