Awesome, but needs minor improvements
I gave this app 4 stars because it is missing an essential feature that is available in this app for other platforms. First, would love to see the orbit path and direction when selecting planets or the Moon. Would also love to see objects such as satellites and their path/orbit, especially the ISS. UPDATE: 7/13/2016 Above mentioned items still have not been implemented, yet exist for android version of app and possibly for iPhone. Does not appear to be regularly updated. Haven't seen any new features in the last two years that I have been using this on WP. Now that Windows 10 mobile is out, it's high time to start making improvements. Mind you, these are not critical updates and the app functions flawlessly, but for those who are interested in tracking planets and satellites, these features are a must.More
------BEST LOOKING STAR APP.------ The best star map period. A lot of info. Would like some more info even in the form of an about page, explaining/defining the units of measurement. Maybe a line that shows the path the object you searched is traveling in. Really hopping they upgrade for W10 to higher quality textures/graphics. animations and subtle 3D effects would be great. would even pay for the app a second time for the upgrade.More
Great app! Beautiful to look at, very well done and worth the minor fee!More
Freezes after a minute of use
Doesn't seem to operate past a minute or so. Would love better calibration.More
Love it, but....
.... It doesn't calibrate under Windows 10. Please update it.More
Does what it should, but the map is constantly moving and is shifted a bit to the side, even when calibrated manually. App also occasionally freezes.More
I've tried a few different star charts and so far this is my favorite. The mode that lets you scan the sky is super smooth, and the ability to point you in the direction of your desired star or planet is very nice. The only thing I wish it had was a moon phase calendar.More
