SkyView® Lite Positive Reviews
One of the main reasons I use my phoneI have used this app for a couple years now, and I cannot say that there is an app I have used for the same amount of time that has brought me more joy, excitement, and satisfaction than this one. It allows my never ending curiosity to be aided in a way that leads to discovery. Which I think is absolutely awesome. I would call myself an amateur astrophotographer, and this app helps me out a bunch. It is also really helpful to be reading a section of the textbook for my current astronomy class, and be able to whip this app out and find what star or galaxy we are talking about.
I do wish it would give you a better look into the future, being able to project where certain stars, galaxies, or nebulae will be in a larger scope of time. I am practicing taking shots of the heart of the milkyway, but I still have about a month or two until it will be near that time where I live. I'd like to be able to plan a bit more for my shots, so I end up on safari searching for the right info to help me out. I feel that would be a modest addition to the app..Version: 3.5.1
Super great but needs Better handling and music for freeI personally think this is a great app! It works, it’s mostly free ( some things like music isn’t).1. It’s hard to control the screen I have turn around or to the side if I want to try and find planets. But I can’t seem to find Earth. I would like to be able to see meteor showers, comets, and other things but sadly I can’t. I thought it would allow you to go outside and actually see the stars. on the screen I can but I can see them outside but I feel like because when I’m inside it’s not real because I’m INSIDE not OUTSIDE. 2. U should add actual music with singing, I think it would be more fun to listen to like build me up buttercup (the foundations). Or my girl (the temptations) walking on sunshine, ain’t no mountain high enough, Dolly Parton songs, etc. and it should be FREE during these hard times most people can’t afford paying additional fees or just once. They have to pay bills, or take care of their family. But overall it’s a great app so I will still give it 5 stars sorry for the long review lol.Version: 3.6.1
Explore your surroundings!I love being able to open this app whenever I see a star or constellation that I want to know more about or become familiar with. I’ve used this app on and off for a few years now but in the last few months with so much more dark time in the northern hemisphere, I have used it almost daily. I like to quiz myself and the app helps me grade my responses. I also use it to teach my two year old about the wonders in the night sky. We love it! Her favorite star: Vega. My favorite star(s): The winter triangle; Sirius, Betelgeuse, and Procyon. I love the option to display or hide constellation lines or artwork, and love that I can either show or hide the actual surroundings that my camera can see.
This app is great, I highly recommend it. There’s almost nothing I would change about it except maybe if there was a way to add a link in the facts area of a selected object to either the Wikipedia page or some other information source for further knowledge exploration..Version: 3.5.3
Feeling starry eyed might cry a littleMy family had just made the move from the densely crowded and sky polluted New York City (or Yonkers, the unofficial sixth borough) to New Mexico, a state that proudly wears the title of official Night Sky sanctuary and is optimal for constellation viewing due to the low population density and high elevation. I’m not going to lie, when my daughter pointed out the Big Dipper (or Ursa Major) I got a tad emotional. I downloaded the app to confirm our suspicions and were both pleasantly surprised to make out the Little Dipper only a little ways from his bigger friend. We never knew the two bears were so close to one another. Star gazing really does make for a humbling experience and I’m glad this app was able to help us navigate the starry night sky. My parents marveled at the accuracy of the gps. My 11 year old daughter was also able to find her zodiac sign, Leo, and I think this helped fuel a genuine interest in the cosmos. ✨💖.Version: 3.6.1
Best Solar System Guide Ever!Hello. I’d like to share with you a story that just proves this app is the best solar system guide ever. It was a really late night during the summer of 2018. My sister, my mom, my dad and I were catching fire flies. I thought I saw the North Star, but SkyView Lite showed it was Venus in front of my house! Then next to it, I saw Jupiter, the moon, and Mars! And the app is completely free! This app never shows adds. With most solar system apps, it shows you what you are pointing the camera at (like if you pointed your camera at your patio, you would see your patio), or apps might show you a fake sky (like if it was in the middle of the day, it would show the sunset), but this app has a setting that you can see the pitch black starry sky in space! This app does not need WiFi, and you can use it all day, every day! Any time, any place, as long as you have your device. I hope this was a helpful review..Version: 3.5.4
Virtual RealityI love this app. I really have found it useful in many different time during the beginning of my curiosity into astronomy began. For example, this app has allowed me to locate Saturn and view the planet with the rings right through my backyard telescope On multiple occasions. This app allows for an immersive and breathtaking experience, on an encounter with the stars. However, I do believe the app is lacking a fundamental component that, in 2017, it should already have. I believe this app should have virtual reality integrated into its game face. In order to allow users to obtain a more integrated, breathtaking, and interactive view with the stars. It sometimes seems as well, that be in large constellations often block the view of any stars, I suggest setting that can rid of the constellation tracing. Finally, do you speak on any specifics. I would suggest an option to change the music tomorrow relaxing and euphoric socks. Other than that the app is wonderful and has been used by myself another friends for months..Version: 3.5.1
All the bad reviews have an answerThere is nothing wrong with the app it doesn’t force u to update (there’s an X at the top of the screen) the stars on the floor are showing what’s under you and that the earth is round the N in the sky shows you’re pointing north if the app doesn’t work it’s just your phone and it works in the day and night cause it’s there’s still sates in the day u just can’t see them if u tap on the planet star station or anything it tells u about it and your not able to find earth cause your on it -_- it shows you when your inside cause your still on earth when your inside right there’s still stars when your inside right? It won’t show u ever single inch of space that’s ok it’s not projecting stars it’s showing were they are even if it’s on your body, driveway, floor anything 𝐼 𝑟𝑒𝑐𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑒𝑛𝑑 𝑑𝑜𝑛𝑡 𝑏𝑒𝑎𝑙𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝑎𝑛𝑦𝑡ℎ𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑒𝑙𝑠𝑒.Version: 3.6.1
Great performance for free appSkyView Lite is stellar. It provides an augmented reality that shows planets of our solar system, the famous constellations (Orion, Ursa Minor and Major, Virgo, Libra, etc.), the Hubble telescope, the ISS, and many other stars. The stars and planets each have a charted course in reference to the Earth’s rotation and time. When a star or planet or object is tapped, it provides general information about the tapped object and can be expanded upon with an upward swipe, with a detailed picture and detailed information. Although these pictures aren’t 3D renderings that you can turn and observe, as is the case with many other apps. Aside from that, only the main solar system’s planets are shown, as well as only “important” stars. This is okay, however, because if all the stars were to be shown, then the screen would show nothing but. This app is certainly a great performing app, especially for one that is free..Version: 3.5.4
Good, some reviews may not be true.This is the best app! It has most stars, all planets, and most galaxies and etc., though some may need to be purchased (I just got it so I dunno.) Some people say that it’s fake because they can see through objects, but it uses a built in compass in your device. Make sure that you don’t have a case with magnets or a magnet literally touching the device, or it will freak out. If lights make it hard to see, block the camera and it’ll be fine. Overall, I’d very highly recommend it, and (this is a little add) if any readers reading this play Roblox, go to settings on Roblox, then go to groups, then search “TrainsHains” in groups. I have several groups that may be recommended, and if anyone has builder’s club join the Alan Jackson group so I can give it to u because I switched from country music to alternative. So about the app, I’d say ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (five stars) and a 👍🏻.Version: 3.5.4
Nice app but beware of phone case magnet closuresI really like this app. However, I almost deleted it because it wasn’t working with my iPhone 8 Plus. The help FAQs suggested that I calibrate the compass. Well, when I tried to calibrate the compass, it wasn’t working either! After I did a little research on the web, I found out that If you have any type of case that has a magnet closure, the compass will not work, therefore, the Star view app will not work either because it depends on the compass and the GPS. This should be one of the first things mentioned in their help/support/faqs! I have a really nice leather wallet case that holds credit cards and it has a small magnet closure in the upper right corner. if I take the iPhone out of the case this app works like a charm. I don’t think this is the fault of the app. I think it’s just nature. Magnets typically screw up compasses 😊.Version: 3.5.4
Must Have for Night Sky’sI’ve always had a version of this application on three phones over the years. They are simple and have never a problem. Just the right amount of information without a cluttered sky.
!EXCEPT! in the case of the Moon. Instead of panning through the sky and coming upon the moon, and getting to actually view it or any relevant data, what you are subjected to is some infomercial and glamour picture of some lady cluttering the view and hawking her latest self-indulgent audio ramble that you can’t get rid of, since there’s no way to dismiss her so that you could view the moon by it’s ____ing self!
Other than that glaring inconsistency, this is overall a well made application, which I would recommend for everyone to maintain a version on all of their iOS devices for the sake of curiosity if nothing else. Point of the sky and answer once and for all with that light is that you see....Version: 3.5.4
Vintage PointsI don't see why, space has to be viewed from the center point of planet Earth, why can't we get a different vintage point. Take Mars for example, looking back at planet earth. - this is something that bothers me, this same prospective of mine can and should be added in the real estate industry revealing views from a mountain(s) looking back towards the coordinates of interest.
Google Earth, and other earth Maps Should be added for us to view earth from Mars or the moon. With a zoom in effects to give the user a 3D experience of their searched option of any plants, moons, stars, etc.
A more in depth user experience to really dive into and explore the unknown places they wish to study on.
With all the information of the world combined in a organized manner, as if a human was to first click on planet earth for the first time. Let's say for example, that he/she was born on Mars or the moon. So he/she would see who and what lives on planet earth, by all the information provided over a span of time in the world wide web. The same should/will be true for any plant selected through any Space exploration Application.
This will prove to be readily available and useful as we as a human race, race to Mars to colonize and grow together in knowledge and in power..Version: 3.5.4
OMGOh my God I love this app I’ve seen so many stars I am seven and I I just love it it it it help me pass turn on my planet test I love it it’s just like my number 1M0 my God it’s awesome it’s really really check it out I love it so much and seriously I don’t do anything else but go on this app I am not lying this is not a scam it is the best app in the world you have to get it if you have interest get on it right when you get it and you will love it you’re just on my God she will love it and you will just like be like oh my God I really am glad I listen to her. So yeah I’m just like so yeah this is awesome I just want to move this thing around all day I don’t wanna go to school or anything I’m just looking at the stupid app and I’m just like oh my God it’s awesome literally get it is legit.Version: 3.6.1
Not complaining butI think this app is great, only comment I would like to share is, and I have not tried to click on the image of a constellation, but I would like it if the app could give multiple names if applicable to constellations, for example the big and Little Dipper that most people of my age in my area grew up knowing and being able to point out to parents and peers, I’m not constantly using this or any app, but when outdoors and in the presence of friends I like to introduce them to the insights that SkyView offers, but it’s simple little things like I have yet to see, I am positive I have, but the app does not tell me when I’m focused on the North Star, which I understand has a different name but I’m not an astrologer, I could be wrong, and disregard anything I said that’s false. Still awesome app, now I’m going outside to either reassure myself or prove myself wrong.Version: 3.6
Just Get the App. 👽🖤Get comfy, we’ll be here a while. Here I go....
I started using SkyView about a week ago, and I love it! I have always been amazed by constellations and space in general, and this app made me even MORE excited about stars. (I know what you’re thinking, “What’s so cool about stars?” But bear with me. ) I discovered SkyView one day as I stood outside of my house, stargazing with my mom, and we watched Orion-my FAVORITE constellation.
My mom and I wanted to be able to find other constellations besides the ones we already knew. So, I looked for stargazing apps and found a bunch that seemed too good to be true. that is, until I found SkyView. Its description is super accurate and helpful. It’s great if you want to teach someone or yourself about the night sky.
This app helps relive my curiosity about almost ANYTHING that’s out there in the great abyss we call space. Won’t it be awesome if one day you can just open an app and see a FREAKING ALIEN PLANET?! Anyway, I just wanted to say that SkyView doesn’t get enough praise at all. It’s just such a fun, exiting and educating app. Thank you SkyView!!! -Lizzie👽🖤.Version: 3.6.1
Love This App!!!Over the years I’ve had a curiosity about our solar system and galaxy and our relationship to them but not enough time to dig in and do the research to grasp a better understanding. This app has opened the door to spur of the moment excitement and “ahh-ha” moments (first on a camping trip in N. Michigan). I can’t say enough good things about it! My favorite so far is how it shows the arcs that the planets and stars seemed to take in our sky as we rotate on our axis and how it shows how everything in the northern hemisphere seem to revolve around Polaris and why that star must have been so important to early astronomers trying to figure all this out - using whatever their “apps” were! Last night my wife and I decided to go buy a sun dial!.Version: 3.5.4
Descent for tracking celestial bodiesThis is very precise and accurate. This can actually tell you when to look for planets, moon, etc. The only problem is that they charge you to see Uranus and Neptune, and upgrade to premium version. However, this is great if Saturn is all you are looking for. I spotted it with the unaided eye and viewed it through 7x35 binoculars. I just got a telescope, so I am going to see how this app is beneficial for viewing the ringed planet. I also spotted the Andromeda galaxy, but with 7x magnification, it just looks like a star. This also helped me to spot the Big Dipper etcetera. This can spot a few foreign galaxies and many stars. It also shows where some nebulae are.
The conclusion: I give this app 5 stars for its accurate predictions..Version: 3.6
It’s great if you understand it but...It needs an update. Calibration is always wrong and gets more and more wrong even when set properly it changes. Manual Calibration doesn’t work either. As for understanding how it works, most of the bad ones star reviews are idiots who don't understand this app works spherically, meaning stars and planets on the ground is the other side of the earth dumb***. The data isn’t wrong. Nothing is false about it. That’s calibration issues and people being morons. “I have stars in my house” no. You don’t. You’re just dumb. Probably tell people the earth is flat too. Ive used this app for several years. iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and currently iPhone SE. I’d like to give 4.5 stars. But I’ll rate as 5..Version: 3.5.4
A Lot of Information!!! Works!I just watched the International Space Station. It was awesome. Brightest moving star, no blinking, no noise. Took about 25 seconds to watch from the edge of trees overhead where I am. But...the app was off in its timing by about 30 seconds. It showed that it had passed already, and I was about to give up, when it did show up. And the tracking of the ISS orbit was off a bit too, although it paralleled what I saw pretty close. I read in another review about this, so I guess it's not EXACT but could be better if a description about time delay was offered. My confidence in looking at other satellites is now off a bit now, if I had not seen the ISS first.I texted with a good geeky friend who is in to space, and he confirmed what I saw. It was great to see the ISS. Well worth it..Version: 3.5.1
Love knowing what’s in the nighttime skyFor years I’ve been frustrated by my inability to remember where constellations are from season to season. And I was never sure whether I was looking at planets or stars. Even the free version of this app is so handy that I can’t believe it’s really free. You can locate all the celestial objects and constellations, even if they are not above the horizon where you are. Plus, you can find Hubble and the ISS, which are really exciting to watch fly over, for me at least. This is a real treat to use on any clear evening. My friends think I’m some kind of astronomer genius because I can tell them so much about what’s in the sky at any time..Version: 3.6.1
Awesome appI haven’t been using this app for over a month yet but it’s still is up there on “the best app on my phone”. I can see the Hubble Space Telescope, The ISS, and I’m planing on buying either one of the satellite packs. My only complaint is that if you are a kid like me, and like things like satellites, The ISS, etc. you have to ask your parents to buy it for you and so while I’m typing this I realize that it’s actually not that bad to ask for something that helps you learn about space. But in conclusion, this is a good app for someone that likes star gazing or someone that likes satellites or for someone that needs a hobby or just for a fun pastime.
Teach don't PreachWARNING:This may be offensive to fools. -When I became a father each day I learned from my kids, through this learning came the desire to pay attention to details, without losing sight of the true, the right ,and the real ,the big things - This App., brings the nature of the universe, from peas to planets into a fathers toolbox, naptime becomes "wow" time...that's a big deal. That's the difference between fathers and daddy's- A father of a child may only exist in dreams or stories but daddy knows what I mean. He's right there for it all, Daddy's teach their kids the truth, daily, in person. If ya have children (moms too sorry🤣) you're gonna need all the help you can get- GREAT TEACHERS HELPER!! for teachers who love to learn❤️🤓⚡️.Version: 3.5.1
The best but...It's a good I love it so my tablet I my dad has the full Version but I do not are usually use a full Version of SkyView Lite. Mustley I use the app but how do you ern more Space object? I think you are supposed to do 10 Times on the app, and some times purchase it. Stel the best so so so so so so so so so so so good app! I just whus on the app but it sad White a rating the app. But I did mostly REVIEW so I did rat the app. Then I text Jada Scott like I'm a Scott to do it but doing this my mom came and I whus just watching the sims 4 by greystillplays a min ago SkyView Lite. You get to explore space. And search for Galisys planets in the solar system and more! The best app but my tablet about to die so that's it..Version: 3.6.1
One of the best apps I have ever usedTo be able to point to the sky no matter when and where and see what is around you in the skies - planets, stars, galaxies, satellites and even Hubble telescope and international space station- that is something best left for individual experience. This is innovative usage of technology at its best. For those of us who have pointed optical telescopes into skies and fiddle around with controls for diurnal adjustments etc. the power of this app is even more appreciable.
Great work! Thank you !
Definitely switching to paid version as a token of appreciation even though the free version is perfectly fine without any crass commercialization..Version: 3.5.1
Absolutely Wonderful!Just aim you phone at any area of the sky and this app shows you nearly every prominent object in the sky. No more wading through books, charts, or slow websites. Center an object in the screen and it’s name appears. The augmented reality feature can overlay images of planets and constellations. These features can be individually turned on and off. Also capable of showing satellite locations too. You can even use this inside to show what’s in the sky outside your house. Just move your phone around and watch the screen. Really fun. Rekindling my interest in astronomy without the hassle..Version: 3.6
DisappointedI was upset that I thought I had to pay for it. So I did. Just started using the paid version. So I do not know yet if it is worth it. I’m sure it will be. On that note, the free version wasn’t working for me. Again I thought it was on them. It might not have been. All it did was music and an N on the center. Paid for the new one. The way to fix the problem is turn your phone off an back on. So I probably didn’t need to pay. Either way, I really enjoy this app. Thank you and hope I helped someone out with fixing the same problem I had..Version: 3.6.1
Out of syncI visit Sky View daily, mainly to check on the whereabouts of the ISS. Then I began to realize that the ISS was not in the correct location. I know this because I visit other sites as well and when it crosses my longitude and is not directly North or South I know something is wrong, also when it is showing to be overhead and is not something is out of adjustment.
What I don’t understand is how this could happen with the capacity you have at hand? I have noticed that every so often someone makes corrections, but within a month it will again wander out of bounds.
Thank you, hope you can correct this major problem, who knows what else may be out of sync?.Version: 3.6
Love the skies? This app’s for you!I’ve had this for around two years now and just got around to a review. When I am outside chilling and it’s dark, one of the first things that come to mind has been to pull out this app. Friends and family alike have loved exploring the night sky with me using the app!!! I never spent as much time as I wanted to study the stars when I was younger, and this app really gives me the opportunity to feel like a curious child again :)
Being able to see a bright star and then identify it has made me just a little bit closer to nature, I think!.Version: 3.6.1
Very HelpfulI’m not sure why some people are giving bad reviews and are vexed, but it is a amazing app if you want to start stargazing. I myself have not bought the full version, but I am looking forward to getting it. Some people are having technical issues involving calibration problems, but I have not run into that issue and I just think it has something to do with their phone and not the application. If you are thinking about getting this app I highly recommend downloading if you are beginning to start stargazing or astronomy.
11/10 app!.Version: 3.5.1
I love this appEver since I was a Youngster I have been fascinated with the stars. I used to crawl onto the top of the house or in a tree just to observe and Yes I got in trouble for it sometimes. I started this adventure when I was about four. I am now Sixty Six years young and was introduced to this app by a good friend who is a jet fighter trainer pilot in the Euro Nato Pilot Training Program at Sheppard Air Force Base. We were talking about the Stars one night and I told him my story and about having a telescope and he turned me on to this app. I use it quite frequently and really enjoy it. Five Stars from me. Thank You.Version: 3.5.1
I love it!! But..I love the app honestly there’s nothing like it if you love stars and looking at the constellations this is the app for you. it’s so realistic for example if the app tells you the sun is is this area and you you point it, the sun would actually be there., same thing with the moon. My only issue is that I wish you guys had the option to show every constellation that’s visible. As well as an option to have the Ecliptic line or more lines, because it only shows the horizontal line. I hope in the near future those things could be add..Version: 3.6
Feel like a kid againI’ve always been into space as far as the science side of it and i love the stars but never learned about constellations, because i didn’t know how to. i found out about this and downloaded it the other day, went outside on a clear night and that was the most childlike imagination i’ve ever had in a while, being able to see Orion and gemini and the bright stars. I thought this would just tell me descriptions of stars but it shows you an exact copy of the sky you see and draws out the constellations. i’m so happy!!.Version: 3.5.4
Loved this app until now but then my favorite feature was removedI loved this app and it still does the basic that a star gazing app should be about to do. But it had the option to see the calendar for the meteor showers throughout the year and that was one of my favorite features.
But then that option was removed. I thought it was moved to the premium app. I paid for all the features and there still is no option to see the meteor shower calendar.
Why would you remove such an important feature?
This app is still one of the best but I hope the developers bring that option back..Version: 3.6.1
Awesome App! A Must Have!This is a great app for anyone of any age! And what's better than an amazing, beautiful, FREE app?! It's simple and easy to use, which makes it accessible for all. I love the soothing background music too! I have used this app for about 5 months now, and I can't stop using it! I always use this app when I want to find a certain star, galaxy, or planet in the sky, and it's always worked. I would recommend this app for anyone who's into astronomy, like myself. Overall, awesome stargazing app!
Recommendations to make this app even better:
- add more facts about the overall sky objects! ( I want to learn more about space, and so do other people)
- add a reminders mode where we can get notified if there is going to be a comet, eclipse, or meteor shower.
- add a star-finder mini game for younger kids to get involved in astronomy! (Have a set of plants, constellations, and stars, for young kids to find while using the app).Version: 3.5.1
Best Star app!I keep showing people this app after they’ve looked for one just like it and never could find a good one. I only have the lite version but after using it as many times as we have, my boyfriend bought himself the full version. Honestly this is something that I think everyone should get because it lets you realize what that bright star you see is without it being a hassle. Also everyone should see mars and learn to recognize that red star!.Version: 3.6.1
The most amazing App on my phone!I can spend hours on this App without realizing that it’s been that long. I’m a little curious as to why Mars, Jupiter and Venus are so visible to the naked eye right now. I live in Tennessee and was outside tonight checking all three of them out. I have used SkyView for over a year now and this is the first time I’ve ever been able to see three of our planets at one time just by looking up. It’s freaking AWESOME! To be fair though, I wouldn’t be able to identify them without SkyView!!☺️
By the way, today is July 4th, 2018.Version: 3.5.4
SkyView LiteI’ve been an amateur astronomer on & off (as usual life responsibilities permit) for over 65 years. When I’ve been away from enjoying clear night skies for a number of years, this app is easier than good star charts for a quick re-familiarizing myself with the constellations. Just aim your iPhone, centering the small circle/reticle as though you were taking a picture of the constellation you’re interested in, and star & constellation names appear on the screen. That basic function alone is worth the price of admission..Version: 3.5.4
Great appI’ve had this app for years and I love it. My 3 year old daughter loves it too. I really like how you have access to more information of the stars, planets and constellations when you click on the info. I’ll go down the rabbit hole of outer space info from time to time because of it. My only minor complaint is that it doesn’t show the constellation on the app directly over the actual constellation in the sky. I’ll try calibrating it again. Not a big deal anyway..Version: 3.6.1
Best astronomy App for iOS!I got this free app on my iOS 8plus. To give everyone some technical back story to my review. I downloaded it and then never really opened it after that. So about tonight’s ago my husband and I were up late and I was outside our apartment looking up at the black sky and open the app. I absolutely love that it shows you the actual planets like Saturns rings Jupiters swirling gases real color! I love the features on the settings for it being a free app as well so much so that I spraying for the $1.99 And purchase the app. Love it love it love it!!!!.Version: 3.6
Simple and basicI have a 6 year old boy that loves space. His obsession started with Star Wars, believe it or not!bhe has been to the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville Alabama. I downloaded this app over the summer so we could stargaze together with something interactive (he's a hands on boy and just looking up at the sky is boring to him). He loves this app. My mom ended up getting him a telescope and it just got delivered today. Without her knowing, the telescope actually supports this app. How perfect! Lol can't wait to use these two products together..Version: 3.5.1
Completely Satisfied! But one thing should be added.Overall I love this app, it has a bunch of stuff I love and like. I found it very sad that you couldn’t see Uranus or Neptune for free, nor can you see the whole solar system which is very sad for some people. But I love the apps design and the way it works! I recommend downloading this app! 100% works (Not click-bate) One idea I have make at least the planets and dwarf planets free!!! You would get a lot more users if you did this!!.Version: 3.6.1
Always a joy to useFantastic app that allows me to appreciate the universe in a new way each time I use it. I look forward to cloudless nights where I can pull out my phone and discover a new constellation that was previously unknown to me. This app has made me more educated about the night sky and our place in the universe. Thank you to the team of developers who made this possible—it has made me a more appreciative human being of what’s out there in space..Version: 3.6.1
Love this app!Let me start out by saying, that those reviews that call the app fake, because, if you point the app at the ground you see stars as well, don’t realize that there are stars all around the Earth. They are above us, below us, and to the sides of us. Not just directly above. This app has helped me pin point constellations, and even helped me to confirm my belief that what I thought were certain constellations, were in fact said constellations. 10/10!.Version: 3.6.1
Wow! This app is phenomenal!I really love this app it has shown me a detailed description of the planets and where they are in the solar system. I recommend this app because it is very accurate and is fun and easy to use. If you’re thinking about downloading this app it is 100% worth it. (Just a side bar I am 15 and my brother is 9 and we didn’t have much of an interest in space until we used this app. So if you have kids than this is the perfect way to get them involved with outer space 🙂).Version: 3.5.4
Super!This free app is the coolest thing on my phone. When I lose my perspective, it takes only a moment to access the incredible universe surrounding me and is to regain. I love the app for its accessibility, it's cost (free), it's cool and soothing background music, the links and graphics. Very cool. I share the app with people everywhere I go-- fam, friends, colleagues, clients and even strangers... a great instant reminder of how vast is our universe and that all is well, even when we may have troubles or concerns in our own tiny flash of life 😊
Love, love it!.Version: 3.5.1
I loved this appI loved this app but now it seems that it’s not working like it used to. I used to be able to look through the camera and see the night sky and the app would say what is on the screen. Now,Ursa Major takes over the whole screen no matter where the phone is pointed, and Ursa Major is the only thing that is explained. I even paid for the upgrade thinking that would help, it didn’t. I deleted the app and reloaded, that didn’t work either. I’m just disappointed that it doesn’t work like it used to work..Version: 3.6.1
Close but no cigar for my useAfter getting notification about the space station flying over, I have to type in ISS, let it search and click on the result to find the general direction to look in. It’s not terribly accurate.
Also, I was able to track space junk on the screen for the first few days after downloading the app but that stopped and has never returned.
Go to work on that free version if you want to sell the pay version. notification about the space station flying over, which I can’t figure it how to recreate or undo, I have to type in ISS, let it search and click on it to find the general direction to look in. It’s not terribly accurate.

AwesomeReally good app little bit tough to use but still good. Could you maybe label the icons so it's easier to to know what dose what..Version: 3.5.4
Great free versionThe free version has no ads, just lots of cool information about our closest “neighbours”. We’re definitely considering upgrading to the paid version to find out more about the incredible universe we live in!.Version: 3.6.2
It's 180degrees outThe app is showing me the universe in reverse its 180degrees out.
North and south are reversed so I'm sure it's something I should be able to correct but it's not letting me.
Is this something iPhone related? I have a 5s.
Manual setting doesn't move at all and auto setting gives me the reverse view... I have even set the Center view point on the moon and got the 180 reverse....Version: 3.5.1
AmazingThis app allows you to time travel up to 10000 AD and 1 AD and you can change the time from 1:30 AM to 1:30 PM and more. You can change the month and the day. This app helped me find out if I can see Saturn and Jupiter tonight. And it helped me take a picture of Venus in the day. It is really fun to see the future and the past of our planets and other things. This is the free version. I haven’t bought the one that costs money but now I want to. Great app. Keep up the good work guys and girls. Keep it up. And thanks for reading! By.Version: 3.6.1
Great astronomy appA great astronomy app. Worth paying for if you enjoy exploring out universe..Version: 3.5.1
Great appI use this app almost everyday! Love the tracking ability. Very user friendly. Highly recommended!.Version: 3.6.2
App glitchingUsed this app for a long time. Today it showed the moon was up in the wrong spot (south)..when clearly I could see it lower on the horizon in the north. Will try to delete and reinstall to see if it fixes the issue.Version: 3.6.2
I Recommend This AppThis app is amazing I always use it for studying but one thing is that the planets are off by a bit.Version: 3.6.2
Good, but a few weak pointsThis app has helped me a lot in identifying stars and our local planets.
Perhaps there are things I can adjust in settings, but my few complaints with the free version have to do with problems reading the screen in certain contexts. Sometimes I wish It was easy to turn off the picture that comes up when you hover over a constellation. The white graphic makes it difficult to read the names of specific stars that are also in white and this get obscured. Also, if I’m trying to locate stars during the day (just to appreciate how they shift during the earth’s rotation), text is hard to read against a bright screen. It would be nice if text could automatically adjust to the background so that it can be read. I’d love it if the rest of our planets were included, but I guess they gotta bait me with something for the upgrade. Thanks for all I’ve learned from you!.Version: 3.6.2
UpdateLove your app. Please update to include the Webb telescope!.Version: 3.6.2
Great appHave enjoyed this app for many years. Got my grandkids interested in space this way!!!.Version: 3.6.2
Hi!Great! But I can’t find the Milky Way or Uranus. Please add those in..Version: 3.6.2
Cool AppLove this app. So great to be able to pull it up on those occasions when I am looking up at the stars and wondering what might be there or to confirm a constellation that I think I might see..Version: 3.6.2
FunThis was really exciting and now I have taken a lot of pictures. This app is not bad.Version: 3.6.2
AwesomeMy daughter loves to use this app during the day to find things she looks for when the sun goes down and then tells us stories about the constellations or planets she takes not of that are in our field of view for that time of year, I would recommend this app to all young aspiring astrologers out there.Version: 3.6.2
ThanksBeautiful app. It has helped me to expand my relationship with the Cosmos. Thanks.Version: 3.6.2
Can't find the "share" button!..First time in years, leaving a review. Ket alone a GOOD one. Only rant: I would love to share the application through the app itself, so the recipient knows it's legit...

Awesome!!I love this so much!!.Version: 3.6.1
The best space appAs a huge space nerd I can properly say that this app is great for identifying planets stars and satellites in the sky it is sure to help you with using your telescopes at night if you can’t tell planets from stars. There are most of the planets stars and satellites in the free version but you can find it all in the full version. It’s one of the best mobile purcheses I’ve ever had and it’s at a very reasonable price for what it offers. You can find all of your common stars like Bettlejuice and Sirus. This app is yet to let me down.Version: 3.6.1
Love it 💙It’s is a very cool app but,I just wish Uranus ,Pluto and Neptune were there because my fav planet is nuptune.Version: 3.6.1
AwesomeThis app is great, works perfectly music really nice.Version: 3.6.1

Good basic viewing guideThis app is great for locating where some the main celestial bodies and stars are and ISS and Hubble. Great free app..Version: 3.5.4
Love itThis app works great, and makes stargazing fun!.Version: 3.6.1
Love it!I really REALLY like this app. Me and my sister would bring my phone outside and see all the names of the different stars. My favorite part is, it’s FREE! I found a app just like it, but it’s a lot of money. I really think u should get this app!.Version: 3.6.1
Calibration IssuesI’d like to say I love this app. When I can get it to stay calibrated I really enjoy it but that is just the problem. It is often off by at least 90 degrees and isn’t accurate for my location (I have cellular data on and allow it to use my location). Any time I have tried to adjust the manual calibration it will stay that way for a minute or two and then right back to where it started, pointing in the wrong direction.
I will still give it three stars but only because I can still make some use of it by looking at the location and then glancing at the location in the sky but this makes it pretty much a digital planisphere with the added feature of tracking moving planets and the moon..Version: 3.6.1
Amazing appThis app is incredible I use it every day :D.Version: 3.6.1
Love itReally enjoy being able to quickly find out what the objects are in the night..Version: 3.6.1
Excellent!Thank you for creating such a helpful tool to enjoy this wonderful universe created by God! I have used it for years and with family and friends and it really helps everyone understand just a little our universe..Version: 3.6.1
