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!

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)

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.

Easy to see nice work - real soon

I haven't used this much. However, with that being the case, I was able to get a whole lot out of this software just on instinct and standard type mouse work. Well done!

N & S , E & W Reversed.

Most of the star map apps had a curious problem on my original Asus Transformer: they would show North when you were looking South and vice versa. (Same issue with E & W, BTW.) It wasn't a calibration thing, just the apps not handling the compass correctly. This app is showing the same behavior on an Asus VivoTab RT. Fix that and it'll be a 5/5. Looks stunning otherwise.

Not Useful

I opened this app after installation, then I was unable to do anything. Could not find settings or controls anywhere using normal keystrokes. I could not close except by uninstalling, which is where it will stay.
