I tried this app because I love watching the stars. I sit out and watch a lot of evenings. The instructions say all you have to do is point your unit at the star and it will produce a picture of what you are looking at. Well late in the instructions it says it works of the GPS of the unit. Kindle Fire does not have GPS so it doesn't work on the Fire.

This product, although really cool, is not appropriate for the Kindle Fire. Since the Fire doesn't possess an internal gyroscope and GPS capability, the app is facinating, but pretty much useless. There should be a disclaimer somewhere to alert potential buyers.

Does it or does it not work on a Kindle Fire..what's the story! The app is designed to work best with GPS so if you download it onto Fire HD 8.9" it will work just as designed. It's a great app and I like it alot. As setup,you move this little blue location ball to the position on the Earth map where you are (or even cooler-where you want to be) and then aim the screen and the stars and planets and satellites appear with their names in real time. If you aim it at your feet, it shows stars and planets and satellites that are on the other side of the Earth in real time, way cool. If you move the location ball to , say Australia, and start aiming the screen, the stars and planets from that hemisphere show up as they appear there in real time. What's fun is to compare how constellations change shape from the Northern hemisphere compared to the Southern hemisphere. Orion is a good example. The big names in Earth orbit, the Hubble and the International Space Station, are highlighted in red so you can find them easy. Even if you can't see them from your location, they are easy to find on the Earth positioning map and easy to track in real time. If you download the app onto the original Fire 7", there's no GPS so the app works manually and it's real touchy. You manually have to move the map to the correct compass heading, move the map up to the sky or down to your feet is all done with finger swipes. Sadly, I don't think the original Fire has the computing power to handle the app, I say this because it's super touchy. If you move the map around too quickly or give the map too many commands at one time, the app shuts down and you have to start all over. There is sort of a learning curve and it's kind of frustrating.So if you are using this on the Fire HD-no problem. But if Fire 7" is you platform, it will work manually for an adult but I don't believe a kid would put up with it or put up with you using this as a teaching tool about the night sky.

purchased this for my iphone and it is awesome. did not think about gps when I got it for the kindle fire. I just thought the larger screen on the fire would be awesome. feel ripped off but I should have realized about gos. should be a disclaimer. any way to unpurchase an app?

I did not read the whole instructions before downloading onto my kindle fire and was dissappointed because I didn't relize there is no GPS on the fire so it will not work. My fault but just be aware.

the directions say "point and look" but all you can do is look on a kindle fire...and scroll/compass manually with your fingers. very misleading reviews!

I have this on my iPhone. Will NOT work on the Kindle. Don't buy it ! Kindle Fire doesn't have GPS, so it can't load your sky for you. I would love to have my .99 back, but I bet that won't happen. I would have rated this 'no stars' but Amazon wouldn't let me.
