    "Pretty good app. There are some features I'd have really liked that I've seen in other apps, like a strong offline mode, but what it does have works pretty well. Works smooth and fast, and has some pretty cool looking graphics that go beyond just pointing at the sky and seeing what stars are there, like most of the initial star map apps were."
