GoSkyWatch Planetarium Cons

Useful as all heck, but...Please stop popping up tips and marketing crap when I launch the app. It's a paid app. Act like it. It would also be nice if it would remember the last Messier object I looked up so I don't have to keep looking it up. Leave me where I left off. And where's the NGC catalog already? Years later, still no expanded catalogs. Still-STILL years later and no expanded catalogs..MooferVersion: 9.3

Not very good at allPoor.SparkycarVersion: 9.1
