Pros and cons of SkyView® Lite app for iPhone and iPad

SkyView® Lite app good for

Wow such a good feeling to look at any object in the sky and know what its name is... Brovo!
I love that app, you can observe your own sky everywhere you are and its
When ever i needed help from this app, it always supported me! Thank you team
Very good app, easy to use. But I cannot find the Milky Way with it :(
It is very useful and perfect app to learn and have fun. Great job!
Thanks for this truly amazing and educating App. The precision Is awsome. There Are so many Moments to pull it out and gaze at The Stars. I Love it

Some bad moments

Finds my location just fine but the constellations do not line up properly, even after manually calibrating the app.
Also having similar problems as other people.*Map is reversed 180. Cant find any information how to correct it. Try different methods of calibrating and still not able to fix the problem. If the problem resolved. I think it would be a great app.
The position of the objects in the app doesnt match the real one anymore. I cant even correct it manually: the sun stays under horizon.
The compass is about 120 degrees off. Did the calibration and all other apps using the compass work fine, so it is not the phone or compass. Sent a big report but did not get a reply. Will delete if I do not get a response in 48hrs. At this point I would not recommend.
The Display Settings doesnt work. I stopped using it for that reason.
Just watching the moon rise over the horizon this morning, got my star app out and it showed the moon rising one quarter of the horizon to the right of actually where it was. Inaccurate farse, and obviously not a real Scientific application.
