    Perfect. Best astronomical almanac and guide - and I have seen quite a few of them.

    I'm an amateur photographer that primarily photographs the cosmos. This app is by far the most informative and easy to use app that I have found. I can easily track objects that I want to capture and it also tells me the best times to capture them when they are most visible. I recommend this app to anyone that even has a passive interest in stellar activity. I'd give it a 10/5 if I could.

    This is just amazing! The amount and quality of the information and images it contains. The fusion sensor does work with my Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo, and it does talk to the phone's calendar too, enabling you to set reminders easily. Just lovely! Big "thank you" to the developers. This is simply a joy. ?

    Excellent app to guide one through what's to be seen in the sky. Perfect mobile tablet app to accompany those used on a bigger less mobile computer screen. The sky in your pocket.
