Tastes are different. To me, this interface is HORRIBLE (ever heared of the Apple Human Interface Guidelines?) and the application completely useless for me as a hobby astronomer.

Right - that should read "ephemeris".

Major problems, such as outright crashes, failure to display "local view." "Old" search results, which display data about a star or planet etc., persist on display even after application is restarted, obscuring the star field. Zodiac signs creating same obstructive "haze." I have communicated this to developers and was assured those problems would be resolved in November release. However, the newest (paid version) has exactly the same problems, and is more unstable. Too bad, this was a promising application from an Astronomy entertainment point of view. This review holds for both the iPhone version of the application, as well as, the desktop / laptop variants. iPhone4 iOS 7.0.4 iMac 2013 running 10.9 MacBook Pro 2009 OS 10.9 All devices deemed by the developers to be compatible with latest Skyorb release.

@ Harristype - Oh really? Well, if this is the case, maybe you can provide an official downloadlink for this "free" app?

The app is not free. It's $2.99. And apparently you have bowed to the Apple-god, because you are on MacUpdate, so obviously you are using a Mac. Otherwise, why would you be here? Unless you are trolling.

Sadly another free Software that nobody can download unless you bow and pray to the Apple-god. It's a very bad idea to force the users through this policy to search and download from filesharingsites. :-(

Since SkyORB is now commercial it is understandable they use the AppStore. But all free software that goes AppStore-only is dead for me. I don't want to use Apples closed system and I want no install over the internet without getting an installer file for backup and re-distribution purposes among my fellow students.
