TroubleshootingFAQ
The Map doesn't movepoints in the wrong place
Make sure you haven't switched into manual mode. Does your phone have a compass? If not, Sky Map cannot tell your orientation. Look it up here: http:www.gsmarena.com 

Try calibrating your compass by moving it in a figure of 8 motion or as described here 
https:www.youtube.comwatch?v=k1EPbAapaeI.
Are there any magnets or metal nearby that might interfere with the compass? Try switching off "magnetic correction" (in settings) and see if that is more accurate.

Why is autolocation not supported for my phone?
In Android 6 the way permissions work has changed. You need to enable the location permission setting for Sky Map as described here:
https:support.google.comgoogleplayanswer6270602?p=app_permissons_m

The Map is jittery
Try adjusting the sensor speed and damping (in settings). We have a better solution coming soon!

Do I need an internet connection?
No, but some functions (like entering your location manually) won't work without one. You'll have to use the GPS or enter a latitude and longitude instead.

Can I help test the latest features?
Sure! Join our beta testing program and get the latest version.

Reviews From google play store

I have used this app many times on many devices, and recommend it when people ask about stargazing apps. Unfortunately, this app does not support auto-rotation on the Moto E4. The Moto E4 does not contain a gyroscope device, instead it relies on data from a 3-axis magnetometer and a 3-axis accelerometer to infer rotation in a given direction. Im not sure if this computed rotation value is accessable in code, but a small code update should fix the issue.


Interesting app... Major problem is the compass is never accurate. The app will tell you if the internal compass needs calibration. This never works, even at high accuracy, it still is off by 90 degrees, give or take. There should be an actual manual calibration option. Not some silly flip-your-phone-for-twenty-minutes-for-no-measurable-improvement method.


Awesome app! Everything works as intended. I would like to suggest the addition of an option to add a new object on space. Since the amount is limited, it would be nice to have the ability to load the coordinates, name and type of an object and have it displayed. Keep it up! Great work.


This App is fun,just turn on your app,frame the phone like your going to take a picture of the sky and the stars will line up with the names showing,can show just stars or add planets etc.great fun for camping if you have kids with you.(Need a clear sky to view,but it gives idea where stars are if the sky is cloudy.)


I've used this app for a long time. Instant info of the sky you're looking at. I like how you can focus in on just stars, planets, systems, or everything! Also has a search and shows you where the starts or planets you're looking for are located at that time. Best one I've found.


This is an awesome app for universe enthusiastic peoples, But this app has lot of scope of improving like details Distance, size, temperature etc information should be mentioned of stars and planets which should be available on a click.


The app is a great app but my problem is that my phone doesn't move around because its on manual,when I put it on automatic it is stuck and that annoys me a lot i tried and tried to fix this but it won't work! it only works on my mom's phone,I don't understand why automatic doesn't work so I only rated 2,sorry!


I love this app. I had no problems calibrating it and it has been very helpful assisting me with locating objects in the sky that I want to view through my telescope. I do have a question, though...is there anyway I can take a screenshot with my Samsung S8+ cellphone? Thank you!


Great app when it works. I first started using sky map about 5 years ago and it was fantastic. These days the accuracy is more miss than hit and often will show the same stars etc regardless of the direction it is pointed. Reinstalling fixes the problem for a while.


Feature suggestions: 1) click on a constellation and get a summary of associated mythology. 2) click on planets and get most recent scientific updates. 3) get notifications about events such as upcoming meteor showers, eclipses, etc. 4) click on space station and connect to live feeds/news. 5) online store to buy telescopes, laser pointers, etc. 6) online community/forum to discuss astronomy/space.
