    "So I click on view solution and it took me to a app on the Google Play store called Cosmic Watch. It seems pretty simple and fun to use if you wanna look at the stars and the developers are still actively working on it."

    "I really like the graphics, the correct placement of the stars, planets, and planetary systems. I am busy taking astronomy and this helps me find stars when I like to use my telescope. Sadly my Samsung core prime doesn't have to full features of the gyroscope. "

    "This thing is amazing! You hold your phone up to an area of the sky and it displays a star map with labels of what you're looking at. No more wondering what that constellation is called, just hold your phone up to it! I use it to double check myself when Im outside and see a bright star I think might be jupiter or mars. Usually Im right but I always see some other object on the map that piques my interest. Great App!"

    "Star Walk is a nice idea in theory - in theory. Unfortunately, it's not that good in practice. It was pretty poor at labeling constellations, sometimes giving different results for the exact same star. The camera features just don't work well enough - at least not in built-up areas where the sky is brighter and the stars more dim. Maybe it would work better if you're way out in the country, sadly. And its advice is something even an amateur astronomy enthusiast would know - it's better suited to someone just starting to learn it, really. But for all that, it's not totally bad - give it a try if you're wanting to learn."
