Amzingly good and chock full of features!

:
(From a 41-year-old software engineer.). I can say from experience that people and companies very rarely ever create software of this quality unless the person(s) creating it is driven by some compulsive desire or love to continue improving it with some kind of desire to acheive, in practice, the ideal perfections they conceive in their mind.

An early story of my own: got a new telescope; saw a bright evening star in the blue, evening sky; grabbed my scope to find out what it was; quickly recognized it as Jupiter; had a hard time keeping it in view, but white specs that I assumed were due to lens flaws helped lead me back when I got close. Then I had a eureka! "I bet those are Jupiter's moons!" I opened my Pocket Universe app, went to the Jupiter screen, and found that it showed exactly where those moons were supposed to be at that time. And what I saw through the scope matched the layout exactly! --If you don't already know, the relation of those moons to Jupiter change noticably by the hour(s), so to exactly calculate and show where they were at that very point in time gave me even greater respect for and confidence in the app than I already had.

My statement here only highlights a very small aspect of the app. Considering all it's other features, I can't imagine ever needing another astronomy app, nor much of any kind of other reference for the sky.

Thanks so much!

Great when it works

:
I love this ap and have learned from it after only a month. Unfortunately it breaks often so it has lots of updates and down time. Each time you have to reset personal settings- also a pain. I hope the bugs will be fixed!

We use it nightly

:
We sleep outside all thru the summer and have pUniverse with every night. It never fails to inform us what we are looking at, to predict what's coming and to get us oriented generally. One of my most used apps.
