I’ve had this app for a while and have become disappointed over time. The compas doesn’t work half the time, so when I’m facing west it’s showing south on the horizon. Additionally, all it “draws” for you are the constellations of the zodiac, which is cool, but it would be nice to see other constellations as well. Granted, I don’t have the version you pay for, so maybe these aren’t issues when money is involved.
It's ok 3/5

I just really don't like educational apps that you have to pay for the full versionjust to learn stuff.
Good app so far 3/5
By Lusty Vanilla
Nice UI and I like that I can manually calibrate it. Had issues with the slider bar not showing up to do it but closed and reopened the app and it was there again.
Nothing happens 1/5
My friend showed me the app and it looked really cool. She could move her phone around and it showed all the constellations. I downloaded this for my daughter who just got her first telescope. But when I open the app there is just a screen that shows the same like 6 dots (I’m guessing they’re supposed to be stars). When I scan around the screen stays exactly the same.
It’s A Fake App 🙄 1/5
By Lives for God
I thought it was real when it said Orion was in the sky. And then i pointed the camera down to the street floor and it said Pisces was right there, laying on the sidewalk ._.
Remove the weird Audible ad on the moon! 1/5
What is the ad for Artemis crap that pops up when you point at the moon? Ugh. Lame! At least allow us to turn that off like we can the music.
This isn’t legit 1/5
By SiSi Blac
I don’t know what app all of these positive reviewers have been using, or if this app was different before an update or something but I personally did not find this helpful. I read about it in Apple news and thought it would be nice since I live in an area where the stars are very visible. I opened the app and they are already showing me different stars. The first time it showed a bear, then Pisces and then Virgo. I don’t know if the paid version is better, however I will not waste my money or time to find out. Very cool concept, I just wish it actually did what it said prior to me potentially spending any money for it to do something extra.
Sky View Lite is terrific. I have enjoyed it very much. 4/5

Game review 5/5
By send ut
This was really just an amazing app couldn’t of asked for better.
The music that is played in this app is so relaxing I meditate and do yoga to this I love it so much there is not enough words to describe how much I would honestly love this app and the Music that is along with it keep up the good work❤️❤️
average at the best 4/5
By decoded human
its a good app for fancy music and art lines of constellation. found first 6 planets and thats it.
no galaxies, and most importantly no uranus and neptune. Seriously??
what are they even thinking
Purchased but still only Lite 1/5
I purchased the app a couple years ago- the new update changed my app to the Lite version. What gives?
The Absolute Best! 5/5
I tried this app many years ago when I had my iPhone 3 and I loved it then. That phone broke and I couldn’t afford another iPhone, so I had to have an Android, and to my displeasure, this app could not be used with an Android 🙁. Now I have another iPhone and I gotta tell you this app is one of the main reasons why I just HAD to get an iPhone! This isn’t only my favorite astronomy app, it is my favorite app, period. Very impressed with the ease of use, the accuracy, and educational value! I have tried “other” apps like this one, but those other apps are primitive compared to this.
Honestly I only delete it when I really have no space but I love having this little app on my phone. It’s visually appealing and makes me enjoy the stars and planets above us even more than I already do!
Would love more clarification when the app does certain lines or features without description but overall I love it!
Beginner to Expert Easy to Use and Accurate 5/5
I have used this app for past 3 Milky Way seasons, sadly, only photographing during the summer months because of family obligation. Therefore, I miss the majority of the Milky Way cycle. This is where this app shines for me, I can’t be a full time Milky Way chaser and I hate other apps that are more complicated because I must re-learn each year how to use them again. I don’t need an instruction book or find a Youtube video for Skyview it’s that easy. I can find Sagittarius and Scorpio easily and adjust the time and location our galaxy will be in view from where I am standing, even when the sun is out. I recommend this app for folks just starting out shooting nightscape to experts who know the night sky. like the back of their hand, be sure to upgrade. I don’t give 5 stars lightly.
Good For Sleepovers 5/5
This app was a huge hit for my 9 year old’s sleepover. The kids really enjoyed finding out which constellations we could see from our house. The highlight was being able to find Mars and point it out with the naked eye.
Give me a new hobby 5/5
By Danilo Piconi
Incredible, just addicted.
I love this app so much it helped me now where planets
Some problems 4/5
The app is amazing for helping me locate any constellations or planets, but one problem I do have is that when I turn on notifications, I DO NOT get any at all. Hopefully this can be fixed
Great app 4/5
I love this app! I have always been looking up at the stars as long as I can remember and have gone through many telescopes and used books to help me locate stuff in the night sky and now that I have kids I want them to enjoy as much as I do and I want to share how amazing and majestic it can be studying the night sky that our ancient ancestors did the same. With this app it has got my kids attention and they love using it. They are 3 and 8 and this app has made it easy for them to enjoy looking at stars and made it way easier for them to locate things and keep them I interested. They are able to go look on there own and discover the night sky. It’s helped to maintain an imagination and explore the universe. While sometimes I hate that they are so wrapped up in technology until I found this app. Now they are learning while having fun. Apps like these are able to bring back the adventurer and imagination that every child should have and wanting to discover and learn so thank you. I just wish that there was more constellations to find and other objects and planets to find without having to fork out $ constantly. If there has to be more ads for this to happen then so be it. The makers of this app should feel like they have more obligation to our younger generation esp to make it more available for them to learn and maintain there interest in the universe since humans know so little. The mystery is enticing to their little minds and I wish that you guys were more worried about maintaining that and helping them learn rather than to over charge and get rich.....
So Cool!!!!!!! 5/5
I got a new telescope for Christmas and my aunt told me about this app. I asked to get it and I’ve been looking at it and it’s so cool! I’ve been able to learn new constellation and today I saw the Sun. I love this app and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in space.
Good, some reviews may not be true. 5/5
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 👍🏻
So fun and educational! 5/5
Growing such an awareness of the sky around me because of this app!
Not too shabby for free 👍🏼
We travel and love to find objects indifferent sky’s around the country. Just wish there were a search item.
Just got it and love it already. 5/5
I got the app today just to see what it is and it is great. I have a telescope and get frustrated looking for objects to see. With this app I can get right on what I am looking for.
Great app 5/5
So much fun! The kids had a blast with this app while on a beach vacation!
What am I looking at? 1/5
Why doesn’t the app identify what planet I’m seeing? I’d much rather see that than a cartoon drawing of Taurus.
Sky view free 5/5
By capt rusty

Enjoying app 5/5
By Tessy from Metuchen
I’ve had app for a couple of weeks. It’s fun, and easy to use. Told a couple of people about it. The nice thing about cold weather is that you see the stars easily.
Good app it’s really cool
Zodiac is awesome 5/5
By Me the 9th
The app is awesome but i’m curious about is where is the Aries
Love this app. It’s the only sky gazing app I have. You see everything and get to read about the stars too.
It’s very fun and amazing to work With and a great way for me to make time for my brothers however it was very hard to work with
Ruined by ads 1/5
New update plagued the app with ads and pop up if you don’t upgrade. Uninstalling
This used to work 1/5
But not any more, it was awesome before but now it’s terrible. Please fix!
I use this app for myself and it is an amazing app.
Love it 5/5

Use this app in a pinch to identify sky objects on the fly. Useful and fun.
Great app! 5/5
You can see the stars and planets and it’s tells you the name!
Great app 4/5
Not bad for a free app, I have only found one better than this, it’s called google sky but apparently is only available for android, this is the best I could find on iPhone.
Best app I ever used 1/5
So I play allot of fortnite but I don’t have friends so I play this instead
My daughter and I spend exceedingly more quality time stargazing together with the help of this app. A true treasure!
Consistently amazes me! Thrilling and easy to use—allows my son and me discuss the important issues instead of the garbage thrown our way! What a beautiful unique universe we occupy 🙌🏻💓✌🏻
I’M IMPRESSED 5/5
By Vengeful Riku
Alright, first of all, I’m willing to bet actual money that this app is a success!!! Watching a DragonQuest IX female luminary dance monsters’ minds out the window may be pretty cool, but in my opinion this entire app is the epitome of beautiful!!
Remarkable job on this app; I mean, you can explore beyond Planet Earth, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME, DUDE!!!
Fun exploring 4/5
Like it. Fun exploring and learning along the way.
Love it 4/5
I use this app a lot great app . Entertained a four year old for a week great learning app.
