Great start Being the only astrolabe app gives it 3 stars alone... It is a fabulous start but there are a few things I would love to see like a "now" button that automatically moves the arm and rete to the correct position. And a few of the proper things for the back like shadow squares and such. (there is a JavaScript applette that was written a few years back for the pc that is what I would love to see for the phone.) Even though it is only a fun thing and has no real world practical function on a phone it is fun.

Keeps complaining about GPS GPS is enabled on my phone, but this app can't or won't see that. It keeps asking to enable it.
