    By SkyRock6789
    Easy to use and easy to set display preferences
  • Just the best 5/5

    By AP Fletcher
    Not going to find a better SkyView app. Perfect for determining astronomical locations for photography.
  • My favorite app! 5/5

    By Jenni smalls :)
    Perfect in almost every way and so easy to use. So many great options and non stop learning 24/7 weather it day or night.. cloudy or clear It’s never a bore to see what is around you and where it’s going. Accuracy on gps almost perfect. I use this app everyday and it’s made learning and star gazing my favorite pastime.
  • Made star gazing fun! 5/5

    By DeeEzBee
    I had my grandma to show and teach me astronomy. She loved astronomy, and sharing her knowledge with youth. Tonight 4-2018, I couldn't help my kids with my grandmas wisdom. The three of them decided to search for an app to help with what they wanted to know. My oldest was back within minutes with an application to help get the answers. He dashed outside and took a picture, and within a moment, he had the answer. It was part of Canis Major. So my kids are more serious about astronomy than I thought! Because of this application! Thank you.
  • LOVE 5/5

    By Mmmly
    As a night photographer, it’s an amazing tool to know when the stars and moon are in my favor ahead of time! I use it every day!
  • Amazing!!!! 5/5

    By Jessibama
    I totally love this app!!!
  • Fails to work 1/5

    By Seattle X
    I upgraded to the paid version and it fails to work. I have reset my phone trying to make it work. The free version was so nice so I decided to upgrade and it no longer works at all. It just opens to a frozen screen. Thanks a lot! Tons of fun! :(
  • Awesome App!!! 5/5

    By BP Fitzwater
    Great tool to get you out door, looking at the sky!!!
  • I don't really like the app 1/5

    By tangueramama
    It could be better
  • 😐 4/5

    By 123❤️😀😈🐶⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    Could you add a feature that lets you see planets beyond our solar system?
  • Just Plain Fun! 5/5

    By The Fat Angel
    I love this app & if you enjoy staring at the sky at night, you will too. There’s nothing like sitting by the campfire stargazing. Beyond Orion’s Belt & the Big Dipper, there was little I could ID. SV ID’s constellations I didn’t know existed, shows the locations of all the planets & their moons, stars of distant galaxies, satellites & even jettisoned rocket engines tumbling around Earth’s orbit. I started w/ the free version but upgraded & am glad I did.
  • It was a great app, now useless 1/5

    By hazlewobble
    Stuck looking North. I have uninstalled, reinstalled and messed with all the settings. The view will not move based on where my phone is pointing. I have used this app for years with my son a now it’s worthless. iPhone X
  • Potentially a great app 1/5

    By YanceMaster
    The reason I have rated this app only one star is simply because the location guiding services is far from being accurate. For example, if you are trying to locate the ISS or Tiangong 1, the app is not accurate, it can be off as much as 90 degrees. I am not sure why this is the case as it uses the same location system in each iOS device, resulting in troublesome identification if you are not a seasoned or experienced astronomer. I like the app, but there is another app that provides real time accurate location of any object your may wish to observe. If you know how to locate the object in mind, I would rate the app much higher.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Maekar_I
    This is such a great app. It is very easy and fun to use and I have no regrets at all about paying for the full version.
  • SkyView 5/5

    By Cheat15
    Works great! Recommend!!
  • Needs to be updated... 3/5

    By RoXas_16
    This app is great and all but it needs to be updated. Also, it isn’t as accurate as I thought. I used it to track the ISS but it didn’t calculate its positioning right. I had to use Stellarium on desktop to accurately tell me when I could spot the ISS.
  • Simple but informative 5/5

    By Kunsthure
    I’ve been using this app for years and it’s been a great nighttime companion. The augmented reality view is really cool. Highly recommended.
  • Absolute Best! 5/5

    By Eljaa
    Dev. Humanity Star tracker in the search... please?
  • Slick app! 5/5

    By bherrick
    Lots of fun with the young grandkids. Highly recommended!
  • Entry Level 2/5

    By MiGWind
    5 Stars for “Age 4+.” Educational amusement for all ages. Lots of eye candy. WARNING If you get serious with it, you will be frustrated. The gyroscope drifts and the text indicates the wrong time to look for an event. You will look in the wrong direction at the wrong time and may miss the International Space Station flyover. Without knowing the fail was in the app’s limitations, you may give up which would be very unfortunate. SkyView is not intended as an accurate science instrument. It is a very nice educational toy.
  • It's Gud 5/5

  • Please update 5/5

    By Lake weather
    Please can we update
  • I love this way too much! 5/5

    By Chooseyty
    I’m writing this review just because of how amazing this app is. I’m a kid who loves Astronomy, and takes it to long lengths. Just this Christmas, I got my first telescope! The Celestron 114 az Explorascope! I downloaded this app originally to see where my favorite star, Capella was located. Turns out, it had spot on location. I then got the full version, and have been using it on a weekly basis! This is an amazing app, and I look forward to using it for studying nebulas, planets, etc! I love this app mainly because I have been studying astronomy for about 5 years now, and have gone from knowing the basic 8 planets, to knowing the official names for several stars, galaxies, nebulae, and several other celestial bodies. This app is awesome for star gazing, planet watching, and exoplanet tracking! If you need a trustworthy, stable, easy to use app, download this for sure! My favorite part about this app is the mini lessons it gives you whenever you tap on a star, planet, nebula, star cluster, galaxy, you name it! I’m never downloading any other astronomy app! Thanks a bunch!! :)
  • where are the rocket bodies?? 4/5

    By Frustrated and over this game
    so far I’m livening this app... only thing is there seem to be no rocket bodies above the horizon.... there ear dozens below the horizon... so it stands to reason there would be an equal number above as well...

  • 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
