A possible suggestion
First, this is simply a great app! Definitely best in its class and one of the gems of the App Store. I use this app to help me compose quite a few time-lapse shots and to predict where things like sunrises or sunsets will occur (it's not always obvious 3 or 4 hours ahead of time where the sun is going to come up). One thing I would love to see added is the ability to change the time and star positions while still being able to move the phone and look around so I can change it to sunrise and look around the sky to see how it will look. There may be a way to do this and I just haven't found it. If there is then thanks for the info and thanks for the great app!

Perfect app. Best star map out.
I wish It could sent me pop up message to tell me when the iss or other objects will be passing over my location. Nothing like seeing it fly over head.

Great program.
This is a great program. I knew an old astronomy teacher who could name the stars by mental map in the night sky. Quite a feat after a lifetime of study. Now I can too. How far we've come with tech. As per the dev's request I shall put in a feature suggestion here. The constellation cartoons are nice, but I want classic constellation 'stick figures' only. Now, the toggle is cartoons and lines or nothing. What about only constellation line skeletons? Just dots and lines, simple easy. The graphics are obtrusive, overly detailed, and a bit silly. Though they do look cool and do add to the mystique of western tradition, and I do love how they fade in with the center of focus, they are not helpful in aiding the constellation identification process of the night's sky. The stick figures like those of H. A. Rey are so helpful when actually stargazing. I'm sure you could make the plain stick figures pop and keep with the app's aesthetic. Further, I'd love to see alternative constellations for different cultures' maps, a la Stellarium. Thanks!

Elegant
Idea for app improvement would be a tutorial. Perhaps even different levels of tutorial on how to use basic and advanced features? That's my idea oh brooding developer.

Amazing app--gorgeous!
I love this. Even if I'm not outside looking up at real stars it's very informative and of course pretty. One thing I don't like is that once a star is selected, it's hard to deselect it or to select blank space. Is there an easier way to do that that I'm not aware of?

Near perfect!
Very good app. I want a useless but fun feature like 'travel to star'. Sometimes I want to show my kid how big universe is. Space travel feature can them understand it.
