Cool app

Cool app. Can't wait to use it on a clear night. Would be even better on a device with gps and camera but i am still enjoying it. Love the globe mode.

Without gps or a camera it' nothing more than a simplified star chart...

If i get another android device with a camera an gps then this will be a bit more entertaining as this will automatically orient itself to show the patch of sky I'm viewing.

If you already have a star chart then you might just want to save your money and not buy this...

If you already have a star chart then you might just want to save your money and not buy this for the nook.

If the app could let you "look up" information by zooming in on a planet or star and clicking on the name I would be much more impressed.

    If I were rating B&N's customer service, I'd give it a 1. I

    If I were rating B&N's customer service, I'd give it a 1. If I were to rate iCandi's (the developer) customer service, it would be a 5+. I had a problem that involved going to the developer for assistance. In a period of less than an hour iCandi's customer service and I had exchanged four E-Mails between the UK and the US. When the problem couldn't be immediately resolved, iCandi kept me updated concerning the progress and when it was resolved I received another E-Mail from them. During this time B&N sent two E-Mails saying that there was no problem that they could find.

    Oh, and before I forget, the app is first rate. If the NOOK HD+ had a built-in compass or GPS it would make things a lot easier but it's not difficult to manually find your location and proceed from there. Looking forward to many enjoyable nights gazing at the stars.
