    Its all animated visualization is fine it's only problem is the auto mode of visualization where it misleads the positions of sun and moon

    This was a great ap, but it no longer works. It was great, you could aim your device in any direction and see the stars. Now it has no idea which way you are facing. Thinking about uninstalling it if there isn't an update soon.

    PROS : Amazing graphics; useful info; almost never lagged on my screen; easy to understand; text isn't crammed. only con is that it is sometimes confusing as to how to make it turn with your phone but you get used to it right away.
