The app seems to have greatly changed since I last used it. No longer are users able to select an object in the sky and use the display/compass to locate the object. I want to give the app a 1-2 star review but, I know that a lot of work has gone into creating it. Hopefully the developer will either add this great feature back to the app or they will create a companion/sister application.

Schade, hatte mir etwas besseres vorgestellt. Kann man deutlich besser auf dem Handy machen. Gleich wieder deinstalliert.

Good app, could be improved. I think it would be useful at add a flip N/S option as well. I find it difficult to use to invert my watch and look upward and try to match the sky picture to the watch.

Hello I like your application. Could you create an application which made it possible to locate the most important planets and nebula by aiming at the sky with the watch? thank you in advance Greetings Bonjour J'aime bien vôtre application. Pourriez vous créer une application qui permettait de repérer les planètes et nébuleuse les plus importantes en visant le ciel avec la montre ? Merci d'avance Salutations

Brilliant app, works wonderfully :) earlier refresh and crash related issues seem to have been ironed out. I can even use the relative position of the sun and moon to infer tide data. Awesome initiative by the developer. V.1.2.2 on F5X Plus.

Thanks very much for this great app! :-) Shows you the night sky where your stood at a glance,you can also pause it,so its easier to view. You also get relevant information about all the objects didplayed. I'm not seeing any speed issues. Its working great with my Fenix 5x 6.0 All the best, Sam.

On the good side it has a lot of details and grate potential! You have sevrel screens that you can switch between. On the bad side , as its written in the known issues. The refresh time is so long your not really shure if the app froze or not. Dear developer i hope you will fix that problem! Dont give up!!

Version 1.1.0 has been uploaded, which should result in updates being almost twice as fast as before. You didn't note what device you have in your review. I've tested on a Fenix 5 and hadn't seen delays of the length you described. Hopefully this version makes it more usable to you.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
