No longer works
Tried uninstalling and installing, but the imposed photo of stars no longer moves with the camera.
When opening this app in the past it would immediately let you look around. Now it is stuck and I don’t know how to make it work again. This is maybe the first time I’ve tried opening it on my new phone, an iPhone 14 Pro, running the latest iOS, 16.3. Please help! My son loves this app.
I have had the free version of the app for a couple years now, and I have to manually recalibrate it every time I open it, and while I’m using the app, the calibration will adjust automatically and become inaccurate again.
Enjoy this App
A friend told me about this app a couple of years ago. It’s totally a joy to use. We particularly like it when looking for specific events or places. Examples: finding the space station when it’s going overhead, spotting Mars with my grand daughter, looking for comets known to be in the sky near specific planets, or finding the zodiac signs in the night sky.
Would be 4-5 star if the app would calibrate after using a few times….. was great now it’s a fail
It’s a good app
I love this app it shows me a lot of planets and constellations and there is no adds
