This is an okay app for those who are interested in astronomy. It was actually categorized wrong and came up in searches as though it is a 3-d Virtual Reality app for use with Google Cardboard. If you are downloading it for that purpose, don't waste your time or data because it is NOT made for virtual reality kits and is solely an astronomy app.

I used the same software in my IPHONE 3GS, very good!, but with the GPS the location was automatic!, in the Kindle Fire it's running very good but it's going impossible to locate it manually to my zone and hemisphere!, a think it's needed some patch.

Apparently this product isn't quite ready for prime time, at least not ready for the Kindle Fire. Because the KF lacks a GPS, the user's location has to be entered manually. This wouldn't be so bad if the location were saved between sessions. Instead SkyORB reverts to automatically retrieving the user's location by GPS, which means the location has to be entered manually for every session. It's unclear if the problems are related, but the sun clock doesn't work at all. Where there should be a map of the earth, there is nothing but crosshairs denoting the user's location over a field of black. Overall it's pretty disappointing, especially considering that it cost $4.

Downloaded this to my Kindle Fire. Have yet to find a way to update my location data. Or any other setting data. Without location, this app is useless.
