Really Good App - This app is beautiful. The colors light up the screen. You can not tell, I could not anyway, that this app was a lite. I has many amazing features and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Like it knows where you are in the world and it can do the stars and constellations for that area. It also has the moon patterns, descriptions of all the planets, names of zillions of stars, a world map that shows day and night areas on the earth at the moment and so much more. Great app to download.
