Uninstall then reinstall after you buy
Very comprehensive for a nominal price. But ads will not stop immediately unless you uninstall the reinstall following purchase. Nicely done guys.More
This is a wonderful app. I work in a planetarium and use this to study the constellations and to set the starball to the correct view for that night. Very useful, though changing the time factor makes the scrolling rather glitchy. Otherwise very niceMore
This app is a fake. Constellations are the same no matter where you aim your phone...... Should show full earth view all around..... Android market has a real working app.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
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
Dead in 8.1. After launch, you allow it to use your location and it immediately crashes and exits. Obviously needs an update.More
Been using this excellent app for months. Has given me an easy way to find my novice's way around the night sky. Like other reviewers, I felt I had to support the developers so I bought the full version. Hope others also give them the support they deserve. Excellent work.More
Absolutely incredible!! Beautiful app!! Wish it could be projected in some manner like the new iPhones. You deserve the accolades that would bring. Well worth the little money and I hope you make millions! Thanks, keep the updates coming.More
SkyMap is a very useful tool if you want to look at the constellations, I like how it is real time and the fact that all you have to do is point your phone in the area you want to look at and the app will show you what is currently in the sky. Best app I have used so far.More
