Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Most complete star charting app

I'm a huge space fanatic so I've tried just about every similar app & I'm very impressed with this one. For one low price you're able 2 see all this info whereas most other apps charge individually for things (ex. Planets, galaxies, nebula, comets) I esp like how you can see what you'd view from the opposite hemisphere. You can scroll around rather than pointing your phone 2 the sky if u want.
