4 of 5 Needs polar alignment app for Android October 16, 2023
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from United States  
Please make an Android app that is the functional equivalent of the Windows alignment software allowing USB OTG connection. There is an existing Android app called USB Camera (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.shenyaocn.android.usbcamera) that is able to connect to and control iPolar via USB OTG as a web cam.

2 of 5 ioptron erratic quality on mounts and ipolar scope September 19, 2023
Reviewer: albert poncedeleon from carbondale, IL United States  
I have three ioptron mounts. All suffer from one problem or another. High error in tracking, more than stated in their website. Ipotron polar copes fail to make contact with the cable and the female connector in the polar scope gets loose and fails to make contact. They do not have support for these ipolars and nothing for the bad PEC of the mounts. Expensive and mediocre quality.

1 of 5 Cem26 w/ ipolar December 31, 2021
Reviewer: Oriol Quirant Banus from Vilamaniscle, Girona Spain  
Do you spend $ 1400 on a mount with Ipolar, or $ 2XX and you have to pay $ 10 more for the App in the Mac App Store? Seriously Ioptron? Is this all the support you offer to your clients?
What a shame.
And you don't have an App for Android / IOS?
Then you go on saying that you have the latest technology.
The next HandControl will be a caveman stick.

1 of 5 Disappointed November 21, 2021
Reviewer: Nicholas Kefalas from Milford, CT United States  
I had read so many good things about this, but i was utterly disappointed. The alignment was always off. And not by a little. By a lot. I could senter better with my scope. I am using a CGEMII mount.
I ended up sending it back and invested in a ASIAIR PRO. I now use the ASI120mm on my guids cope and use the polar align routine in the ASIAIR (which is not so user friendly either !). That does not giveRealtime adjustment images. It samples with images it takes every 1 to 2 seconds, which is VERY annoying, but at least i am  aligned. Maybe something was wrong with my unit ? who knows.

1 of 5 iPolar on Mac M1 October 1, 2021
Reviewer: David J Kreiton from Ocala, FL United States  
Prior to the M1 chip, the Mac iPolar app ($10 on the Mac App Store!) worked fairly well except for annoying green flashes while polar aligning. With the M1 chip and Mac OS Big Sur v11.6 when double clicking on the app I get the message "Cannot use iOptron iPolar". If you Show Package Contents and double click on the app in the MacOS folder it will connect, but there is constant screen flashing making polar alignment difficult, at best.
    Why would I buy an iE5100, which apparently has a MacOS driver and software, when iOptron can not make the iPolar work flawlessly?
