    By halo flame
    This app is educational and fun wich is a perfect way to teach about the planets and constellations 🌌 in all I love this apppppp
  • My first download was perfect, not so much now. 4/5

    By Edin Hubble
    Sky map will not calibrate to the correct compass heading. I have tried manual and automatic settings, but it drifts away by at least30-degrees. Makes pinpointing a specific object difficult. Is this a new bug?
  • Love it! 5/5

    By damselfly62
    Great app!!
  • Love it!!! 5/5

    By Gunslenger1959
    I have over the years had the free Version of this app and love it never had a Single problem with it. It’s always work really well. So with all the telescopes that I own I bought this and have never ever regretted it I’ve tried others but this one here seems to be the best one out that’s why I gave it five stars would love to been able to give it six. I’ve had it on a lot of phones over the years both iPhones and androids alike.

  • Life Changing 5/5

    By JKevinT
    My Beautiful Bride of 12 years, and myself, have decided to live in an RV. After work we go to where ever the RV is parked for the weak and enjoy the freedom we have found! This wonderful app has opened our eyes to the magnificent sky our God has created. Doesn’t matter day or night, we are constantly searching for new things we’ve never seen. I love this app!! It’s detail is stunning!!! Standing on top of my RV, the view is magnificent!!!!!
  • Love this app, definitely needs fixing. 2/5

    By chuckleworth
    This app made it so much easier for me to teach myself about the night sky, but having to manually calibrate it every. single. time. I open. the app. is beyond frustrating. At the very least, allow us to save the manual location if your auto function is going to be as off as it is. Please update the app to incorporate this because the app is practically unusable without having the sun or moon in sight to calibrate with.
  • How fun it is 5/5

    By 💩🦄🍜
    I think it is fun because you can explore the universe
  • Simply awesome 5/5

    By VishAvan
    In just minutes from the first time use, it brought awe and wonder in me and kids. Very intuitive and easy to use. Superb graphics and smooth movements. Keep up the great work!!
  • Absolutely groovy app 4/5

    By Ur2litup
    I absolutely dig this app. My only dilemma from enjoying it better consists of me learning how to use the darned app. Until that happens I’ll just enjoy watching how badly we’ve littered-up space. Other than that, it is really a very groovy app. RAMJr
  • Calibration 3/5

    By tzsahall
    It’s off quite a bit, still trying to learn how to keep calibrated for accuracy.
  • Satellites App 1/5

    By ThreeRivers

  • Skyview 5/5

    By PeterPrinciple
    Very observent and amazing to the human eye
  • Awesome App 5/5

    By nonever
    Who new that there was so much space junk! That revel alone would give it four stars. Aside from that, I learn something new each time I open the app. One of my favorites, thank you!
  • Nice Design & Features 5/5

    By brihar73
    I love the way this app looks, and the trajectory view and augmented reality are nice features.
  • Update for iOS 11! 5/5

    By Deal_seeker
    I just bought the bundle and I can’t even use this app because the developers haven’t updated it for iOS 11. Come on man, even crappy apps have done so. Fix this so I can use it!
  • GET THIS!!! 5/5

    By Connor$$$
  • Nothing is where it's supposed to be 1/5

    By pinktexasbred
    Everything is pretty much off! Even when trying to calibrate it manually after a few minutes it goes back to its original misaligned planets and constellations. Beyond annoying!
  • One of my favorite apps!! 5/5

    By Mitchyman 181
    One of the best apps I’ve seen yet. It can even be used indoors to find stars and planets and it has information on all of them. It’s fun to use and you can learn at the same time.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Earthgoddess13
    I love and easy to use and my grandkids just love it....
  • Great app 5/5

    By TheSharkbite1
    But don’t use the magnetic case with anything that uses the compass lol the screen will lockup and not navigate.
  • Desperately needs to be updated.. 1/5

    By jkhoch
    While I used to love this app, and have an avid sky watcher to be, it hasn’t been updated in at least a year. There had been problems getting it to calibrate. I always had to do it manually, which is fine, but difficult when you don’t know which way you are facing and don’t have any obvious points to calibrate to. Now, it is just plain stuck. It doesn’t move at all, and all I can see is Draco at due north on the horizon, no matter where I am pointing. I have written the app help people and not heard back. It is disappointing. My daughter used to love this app, which was why I paid for the upgrade, but, unless they update it soon, I would not recommend this app for anyone. It will only frustrate you.
  • Perfect to use along side a telescope 5/5

    By Flyngsnow
    I've been using this app to accompany my night sky viewing with a telescope. It has been very helpful in letting me identify stars and constellations that I have been unfamiliar with. The paid version is definitely worth while. Not only will it show you all the celestial objects above the horizon, like Messier objects, but it will also show you where a bunch of man made space junk is floating above your head.
  • Best Star Chart. Ever. 5/5

    By Johnnierr
    I've been an amateur astronomer for over 20 years now, and this is decidedly the best star chart I have ever used. The only thing I would even suggest to add, is a Planner function for each evening's night sky. In other words, an option to click an icon inside the app that shows you the top things to see tonight, maybe everything that is Magnitude 5 or brighter for the evening, to help you plan a night of observing and make sure you hit all the best sights for the evening. But this is definitely a great app, very intuitive and informative.
  • Star Gazing 5/5

    By Arecnam
    I love this app! It’s really easy to use and learn about astronomy in a fun way.
  • Amazing for star-gazing! 5/5

    By Jerrrrrri
    This app really opens your reality at night. As a Pagan, I like to know where all the celestial bodies are in my sky both day and night, and this is the perfect tool for that!
  • One of my favorite Apps! 5/5

    By Interactionmc
    Shared this on Facebook with my friends: Sat on the dock last night with my dad, waiting to see if we could see the international space station pass directly over our heads. Even though we could not, it was one of the best moments of my life. Just like sitting with him. Oh, and if you don't have the app, SkyView, you should download it. You can find any planet, heavenly body, star system, or human launched item up there. If you search for something, it will show an arrow until you are pointing your phone directly at it. So even though we couldn't see ISS with the naked eye, we could follow it with our phones. And just now realized, there's at least one app that two people can use to share an experience without ignoring each other!
  • Best AAEver 5/5

    By Kingsburger
    Best astronomy application ever.
  • SkyView obsession 5/5

    By kcap2210
    One of my absolute favorite apps!
  • Terrific! 5/5

    By DJWooly
    Superb app. Ease of operation, graphics, and technical information for astronomy mavens; experts or beginners.
  • Very good. 5/5

    By islandrocket
    Tried the free version and works well enough so I purchased this version. Holy crap(!) didn't realize we have so much space JUNK up there. Need to clean that stuff up :-( Love the Celestial AND Terrestrial coordinate system. Good stuff. 5 stars.
  • App Store no accept refund 1/5

    By Cooodamac
    Need refund for app didn’t authorized for purchase
  • Interesting 4/5

    By Marina2max
    Very interesting and educational. Amazing all the things people came up with by just staring into space. And awesome to see what else besides the stars are out there like the Space Hubble. Didn't give it a five just because it's of course hard to see in daylight but I just turn the lights out at night.
  • 😍 5/5

    By H.Liddell
    I absolutely love everything in this app. My 4 yr old son has learned so much from it as well!! Thanks!!!!
  • Super 5/5

    By Grahn Erik
    This app is awesome! It is by far my favorite. To be able to see so much, any time of day, is a fantastic experience. I used the light version for about 15 minutes, then knew I wanted to purchase full version. I have a 9 year old who loves to view space with a telescope. This app points him in the exact direction and time, for viewing many objects. Thanks for a great app. Update: I have been using this app for over 6 years now and it's still used at least weekly. My then 9 year old son is now 15 and has it on his own phone. My other sons, now 9 and 10 also ask to use my phone at times, just to explore the skies, even while inside the house.
  • Great app for telescopes 5/5

    By Jakesie
    I use this with my telescopes and it's great for helping to find objects.
  • Love it 4/5

    By Shelbylvr
    This is so cool. 1 thing I'd like it to turn on or off the constellation signs. I like seeing the stars without the signs sometimes
  • Magnificent 5/5

    By EV4PREZ
    Truly magnificent app, mind blown. 💆🏻
  • Yes! 5/5

    By jejohanson
    Love it! My phone is now charting the courses of objects light years away from it, superimposed over reality! With cool spacey music to boot. What more could you ask for in an app?
  • Fantastic! 5/5

    By DeltaYW
    You will NOT regret purchase!
  • Amazing app brings the universe to your phone 💫 5/5

    By WickedWahine88
    You just can't go wrong with this beautiful app!
  • Perfect to track full moon rising! 5/5

    By Whatsittoyacreeper
    What a beautiful app.i always loved the stars and learned how to find them with my dad. This is much easier and fun and the music takes you to the outer space mood! Kids get fascinated and interested. And,, that full moon exact place and time of raising is awesome.
  • 3122 Florence - not found !!! 1/5

    By MichaelinPB
    Probably the biggest near earth object to pass by the earth (4.4M miles), and I can't find it on the app. Am I doing something wrong?. Please add and update asap !!!
  • Could be a great app 1/5

    By Freeakyfreshh(: :p
    This would be a great app if I could only get it to work properly. I purchased this app and can not get it to ever properly line up with my location. I have tried it both ways and it is ALWAYS off! Every time I want to pull it up, I have to go in and try to set the location, which never lines up. I then have to go in and maneuver it so it lines up properly. Isn't this what the app is supposed to do? It is extremely frustrating! I wish I didn't spend the 1.99 on it, it was a waste of my money.
