    Absolutely love this app. I don’t know how many times I’ve opened it for friends to check out, who don’t even star watch, and they are blown away! The app offers some amazing tools for people seriously interested in opening their horizons lol and even better for introducing kids to a unknown! Well worth the money.

    Fun but sure wish it’d skip the what’s-new screen and go directly to the sky map. I have to do so much tapping to just find out what planet or constellation I am seeing at night.

    Apps that ask for feedback should be banned. I’m trying to use the App, not help it market itself.
