[UX Issue]* Screen Panning Movement Does Not Accurately Map User Touch Experience.

Hi! In Sky Safari 7 Pro, when I use my finger to “scroll” my onscreen view, it moves the star field at a different angle than Om moving my fingers, in some cases nearly perpendicular to my finger’s motion. This is most severe when I’m zoomed out (e.g. 60° x 120° FoV) and the center of the display is near the horizon. Zooming in or moving towards the Zenith proportionally lessens the severity. My coordinate setting is “Local” (Alt-Az). When I switch to another coordinate setting, then the scroll direction never even slightly correlated to the direction my finger has moved. My settings were imported from Sky Safari Pro 6 using LiveSky. I am on an iPhone 12 Pro, iOS 15.1. I assume this is a big that needs a software patch, but did not see a better way to submit a bug report. Let me know if you require anymore information from me!

    Jeff, 

    Apologies for the early disappointment!

    We will provide a fix in the upcoming 7.0.1 app update this weekend.

    If you don't mind, please make a screen recording, and link to it in a reply here or send it to ksmith@simcur.com.

    Thanks for your patience at this time.

    There’s no disappointment here! It’s a big update and I’m an early adopter, so minor bugs are entirely expected. (I’ve done 20 years of software engineering, so I know the pain of even a well planned release!)

    I should be able to video the issue to demonstrate. I can also forward the settings file (although I’m sure the devs can pull it from the LiveSky db, it’s the 2021-11 one).

    Thanks Keiron!

    I have that same problem with my iPhone 12 Pro Max. It seems to happen in portrait mode not landscape and seems to get really bad if I dip below the horizon.
