Which horizon am I looking at? A planisphere is supposed to tell you what horizon you are facing and what you should see in the sky above that horizon. This app doesn't tell you what horizon you're facing you just have to figure it out. Why? Just put an N, E, S, W on the edges!

Good but... Good but I can't figure out the interface for time. I'm trying to figure out what the sky will look like sometime in the future, e.g. 10pm tonight. But the sunrise and sunset times in the graphics display and indicated by the "ST:XXX" in the upper left corner do not match the sunrise and sunset times in the lower right corner. Help file does not explain. Nexus 4, 4.4 KitKat

Good but... Downloaded it recently. Potentially a very good app, but could do with better help and an easier to use interface. Sphere on a mobile can look tiny and become overcrowded with labels. As far as I can see it lacks deep space object info, but this is not uncommon among planispheres. Not sure I would rely on it at night. Needs development but basically very good.

No Landscape mode An OK app with the added irritation of only portrait mode. Made for DiDi phone screens. I just don't understand developers who ignore the tablets.
