    High CPU usage by Ashish

    I am running Windows 10, clean install. My laptop is an i7 with 8GB RAM. Sadly, CPU flies to 80 percent while using this app. For comparison, the graphics intensive Asphalt game just takes about 20 percent peak of my CPU. Please optimize this app either for Windows 10, or 4K displays, whichever is true. I am surprized that this app was featured on msn.com

    Doesn't get passed star chart logo by Sean

    Asus slate running windows 10. The app hangs on the initial splash screen. I've used this app on Android and iOS and it is quite stunning. It's great for finding celestial bodies and other cosmic phenomena. My experience with this app on windows is dismal so far. Despite it not running on my machine, it's a great app on other platforms, so I gave it 2 stars.

    Starry Starry Night! by dzba

    I've actually used this to orient myself to the night sky. The zoom and special object catalogue data is awesome App also shows all the constellations and our path taken through them on our trip around the Sun. For anyone with stars in their eyes!

    device matters by Cliff

    The live orientation struggles with an inferior device, in this instance an Asus Transformer designed for win 8.1 but "upgraded" to win 10. I'm not sure what the lesson here is but I'm leaning toward "the app is fine, just think twice before 'upgrading' older hardware to win 10." As for features and functionality, a great little app, my complements to the devs! It's very informative with a logical, easy to navigate layout. I'll definitely buy the full monty, satellites and all, once I have a more capable device in hand.

    Informative and fun, AR has issues by Vincente

    I enjoy the application as a whole and it's put together well. I like the night mode for when I sit in the back yard and have the tablet. The information is usually pretty up to date and the free version doesn't feel like it's lacking so much as to be a waste of time. The augmented reality is usually quite a ways off on my Surface Pro 1 and I haven't figured out how to calibrate it just yet.

    Excellent App - All Platforms by Louis

    Can get a little sideways at times, so you do not want to rely on this as your only APP to view what's going on in the heavens/cosmos. The other reviewers are correct that it goes down for long periods of time (~90 days for me) on all of the 4 computers I had it installed on. Sounds like a common problem, and begging for help apparently gets you nowhere. It is still worth the pain, in my opinion. This is rapidly evolving territory, and some patience and respect for the process are required by the user. Know this before you buy, and have a solid back-up like Stellarium and/or 3D SkyORB. Both are good in a pinch, but I still prefer Star Chart for Win8, Droid, and iPad. If you want a really accurate look, grab the MS World Wide Telescope and related ASCOM add-ins. It will blow your socks off if you are easily geeked! Thanks to the EVL gang for finally getting this working again. XOXO
