How To Disable Compass Mode? (Answer: Read On!)

When the SkySafari 6 app starts, we get a dynamic view of the sky, i.e. the sky chart changes as we move the phone. How do we get back to this view after selecting a planet/star. I.e. How to do we unselect and get back to the original home screen view?

    The “problem” is that SkySafari is following the compass direction of the phone.

    To turn this off, find the Compass in the menu at the bottom of the app.  You might need to swipe left on the menu to scroll over to where the compass icon is.   Once you find it, tap on it and the sky chart should stop moving when you move the phone.
