    But still terrific! I miss the feature to see the time for rising and setting of the planets but all the main features are still there and work great

    Doesn't move with phone reorientation. Images should have accompanying info... Otherwise, what's the point?

    I actually got it look at a planet at night, mars. Seeable with the eye I had heard you can see it, this helped me find mars and is amazing to use. Settings should be saved if customized, I prefer manual orientation and hate having to change it every time I use the app.
