Feedback And Feature Requests About SkySafari 7 Pro

Hello. I’m an experienced SkySafari Pro user from many years and versions ago. Downloaded the latest iOS SkySafari 7 Pro version yesterday for iPhone (on an iPhone X) and iPad (2020 12.9” iPad Pro). I’m still on a bit of a learning curve for your new software, as some things have been added and moved, etc. - normal stuff. That said, looks to be another great upgrade, so thank you for that.. Some thoughts/observations. (1) The new object info screen on iPad (split into left and right portions) would be better utilized by swapping the left and right panes, given the greater quantity of descriptive paragraph information now on the left - OR allowing a moveable center line dividing the two sections (2) Same object info screen for both iPhone and iPad - the embedded picture does not expand (as before) when selected. (3) The Use Voice Control command within Appearance and Behavior settings is not responsive despite the fact I am operating under iOS 15.1. Also, this feature was quite hit-or-miss before so has it been improved? (4) I got well accustomed to the version 6 color scheme for grids and translucent area below horizon. Though the new color scheme is growing on me, some choices here would be welcome, as these features need to sort of melt into the background compared to other colored things (DSO, planets, etc). A nice to have thing.

That’s all for now.

    Nice summary of your experience with SkySafari 7. Still at IOS 14.8.1, but am also not able to enable Voice Control. Message states ‘Must be at IOS 10.0’.

    Also agree with comments regarding translucent sky color; would be nice to have an option on things like that.

    James, 

    Thank you for your feedback.  Pleas elaborate on:

    (3) The Use Voice Control command within Appearance and Behavior settings is not responsive despite the fact I am operating under iOS 15.1.

    1. What action are you taking with voice control?
    2. What do you expect to happen?
    3. What actually happens?
    4. If there is an error message please share it here.

    Thanks!
