Bummer! I love this application it's very informative and educational. I definitely realized how much I didn't know about space. The only true bummer is that I just purchased this application about a month ago and now the make batter came out. Which means that I just bought something old and outdated. that really bums me out 😮
I have been using this application for a couple years now. I also own the premium Sky Safari but it's this application that I end loving more because I search it so much more intuitive. The modularity is brilliant, particular "Tonight's Best" feature which is far easier and more relevant to my zone than Sky Safari which seems very US biased. None of my astronomical colleagues heard of this app, so seems to be an unsung character in my group. I also love that developer is still pushing updates with up to date comet information etc. It's also the only application or that gives you a best viewing time for Eathshine Moon! Unbelievable work and deserves more support. Thank you for making my astronomy Stargazing enjoyable.
I have been playing with this application for about a week now and while I haven't actually had the application under the stars with my scope yet to determine it's star chart accuracy in terms of spacing and brightness so i can "star hop" accurately, it does appear to be fairy accurate with my paper charts. If it indeed turns out that method it'll be much easier to have all this information in one put instead of pages and pages of charts. With all the options on this application is really is a fairy strong program.
Beautiful amazing but no sats or 'space junk' + the interface is too bulbous and a bit of a waste of space. I would prefer a better specified application while dumping the educational-style graphics/interface. You could create a separate ver application for newbies and school students.
This is a amazing application for anyone who's interested in astronomy. It will share you where celestial objects are in true time, real-time sunset time and sunrise time. It in forms you on what phase the moon is in at the moment, and what days it will change its phases. It what you move through our solar system in true time. With you ability to zoom in on planet moons or just on them and obtain information about the object.
I have been using this application for years. I have used plenty of and I own a $40 astronomy application too. I own plenty of books and star charts. For your average joe and a majority of people owning a telescope, this application has more than enough features and is significantly easier to use. A star chart on paper is nice, more expensive apps have more depth. This application is much more user friendly and just enough for a majority of people. I use it most, love it. Worth every penny I spent and then some.
I'm very satisfied with this app. The data is kept up to date with regular updates of the object database. The functionality is just right for a beginner/amateur astronomer. The only thing that might be nice to have with the object set are satellites. Be careful using outdoors :)
I have emailed this developer numerous times concerning upgrading to his fresh version. There is no documentation on their website, or discussion forums, that covers my very easy question. But yet, they refuse to respond just one easy question. If this is an example of the help available when I actually the product and need help, I'll pass. Not good support.
I, too, don't like to rent that is crippled by subscription fees. I bought this application with the understanding that updates would have been included, not that I'd have to the application again and again whenever the developer chooses to name it something else. So, instead of buying the "pro" version, I'll be uninstalling it. I just invested my into Star Walk 2 which requires no extra subscription fees to obtain all of its features.
