    This app is awesome. Wouldn't change anything. I'd only ask an update for different light that we can't see.

    It's the tiniest bit laggy on my GS3 but the wealth of info in this app more than makes up for it. Nice graphics and it orients perfectly when typing in a city. In all, a very nice, enjoyable app.

    While this app is absolutely gorgeous, it took a long time to start, drained my phone's battery incredibly fast, and made my phone very hot to the touch. Already uninstalled.
