Pro Provides useful information
Star Chart comes with the Messier Deep Sky catalog which contains information about galaxies, nebulas, and star clusters.
Con Limited Data information
Limited information about listed objects.
Con Limited "search" function
Instead of doing global search in between all object sets, you have to choose up front the set to be searched (stars, constellations, etc.) - which is inconvenient if you do not know to which set the object belongs (i.e. is it a star, a planet, a comet, etc.).
Con Lots of information is blocked by in app purchases
Instead of offering everything for a flat rate, every additional feature is offered at anywhere from $2.99 to $9.99.
Con High on energy
Unfortunately, uses a lot of battery.
