Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

The app is well-designed and easy to use. The Hubble images are a fascinating draw, but the app could use a little fun factor.

The Support Level for Sky Map is about a 4 out of 5.

While the app is intuitive, it’s too bad there aren’t any extensions or links to NASA or other great astronomy resources.

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
