This app worked better on the iphone. It had a tool bar where you could see real time earth go from darkness to light. Also, it showed all the planets, there locations and when they would be visable. I don't understand this being the same app I had on the iphone, why it doesn't work the same.

Doesn't Work on Android Downloaded on my Samsung S5 and it will only give the 3D sky and nothing else. Will not give a menu to select any other viewing options. Have used this app on my iphone and it works great on there, but no good for android so don't bother downloading if you have android phones.

Not great app for Androids Works better on the Ipad there you have your choices of views, 2D 3D Visability, Globe ,and Options ,unlike here only one view. Visability will show you what time the planets are appearing in the sky and if u click on a planet it gives u information about it. SO 1 STAR HERE FOR THE ANDROID APP. You need to update and fix this to be more informative and enjoyable to use. I am using a Samsung Galaxy Pro Tablet here. This app says to spin the earth or planet of your choice with one finger... I can not spin anything...
