  • False Advertising!

    By TrueCritic27
    I bought this app specifically for the “Dark Sky Finder” they advertised in the app store pictures of the app. After spending about an hour and a half thoroughly going thru the app and all its functions, tutorials and yes even the user guide i found nothing of the “Dark Sky Finder” function anywhere. Very disappointed in this disgraceful behavior.

  • Love the app, but feels like it needs something

    By TheHoddedOne
    This is a well thought-out app and I like how people that are interested in the cosmos (like me) are able to explore the curiosity that we have. One suggestion that I have is the ability to match your star brightness to the light population that is in your area. I believe this would make finding stars in your true light level easier to match the sky; however, I see this feature as a On/Off option.
