"Magnum Opus" Feature Suggestion
The app is great but the developer asked for suggestions for additional features. I have a few. I like to use the date feature to observe the sky at different time periods. It would be great to have some sort of lock so the app can go to sleep and not revert to current time. Or if you can input AND SAVE favorite time periods and go back to them later with a quick drop down. (Like birthdays etc.) Along the same lines a "what the sky looked like during specific historical events" would be cool. For example: the sky as it was seen when now famous astronomers made history making observations from the same coordinates they saw them from. And although many people may hate this, more social media integration. You could have it tie into dates. When a persons birthday comes up it would show them some interesting facts about their "zodiac" sign. Educating the horoscope uneducated if you will. I'm thinking more Google+ Facebook and less Twitter. Include the ability to export facts & figures with images when you are zoomed in. Add a function to add the calendar events to your own calendar as reminders to stargaze on specific dates. Add ISS visibility info and push reminders. Finally, since you have a sense of humor (Santa) perhaps you could add the occasional easter egg UFO. Say, 1947 one flies by on fire... (Roswell) Otherwise a fantastic app that any stargazer should own. It has literally replaced my almanac.

Feedback on what you can add on!!!
I've got a Celestron Telescope Nexstar 5SE Goto mount with the SkyQ Link capabilities. I know they they have their own app called "SkyQ" but I'm here to tell you that I've loved Starwalk since the very first time I used it. So what I'm trying to say is, "why not make it so we can connect to our telescopes (for the people that have them). Then I won't be forced to use their app. I'd really love to be using your app all the time but can't due to this. I'd really love to see this feature added in the near future. One more thing is that I gave you a 4 star rating due to the fact that everything can improve and just when you think your "perfect" that's when your world seems to crumble around you. Plus it sounds way to conceded. I wasn't to fond of that update explanation y'all just posted. Not classy at all. Yes you have a great product but always know that even the finest things in life can be improved. Nothing is perfect. Thanks for hearing my ideas. I would have given you five stars but I had to make a point and say "no your not". Cause "if you were perfect you would have a five star rating". Am I right? Keep doing what your doing and improving on your shortcomings and you'll continue to be on top.

Can you add a feature so you can rotate the camera like with two fingers and twisting them. Either way you get 5 stars

Great app!
Excellent app! I love that I can check on celestial objects any time I want. I've gotten other people interested in star-gazing as well because of this app! It makes it way easy to locate objects and constellations, especially when you're not 100% sure where they are. One wish I'd like to see is an alarm function that warns you of upcoming events. For example, I want to watch Mercury tonight, but I'll be out of the house. Having an alarm to tell me "Hey, the sun is setting! Go out and look!" would be great!
