    "This is a really cool star tracker app. It has most of the features you could ever need for learning about astronomy and star gazing. It did take me a while to learn how to use it, though, and I felt like the UI could be a bit more intuitive."

    "This is way more than a star tracker app. It tracks the entire solar system! You can even pick any point in time and see where planets were positioned in the past or future! It costs a little more because of all the features. If you want just star tracking, you might want to go with a free app for just that. But if you want all the bells ans whistles, this is great!"
