Directions of the stars are wrong. Says I’m facing east when I’m facing west
Used this app for years 5/5
On every new device I get SkyView has always been one of my very first downloads. I love space and being able to look outside and know exactly what star or constellation I’m looking at is great. Also I’ve never bought the extended version. I’ve always been extremely satisfied by the lite version. I’ll probably have it till I die. I try and put all my friends onto it.
Wow, Impressive app! 5/5
If you want the best app for your iPhone and want to learn about space and the universe, this is the perfect app! Thanks for keeping it free!
Doesn’t work 1/5
Worked for the first 3 hours then never again.
Texas Stars 5/5
By The Texas Lawn Chair Man
Sitting outside at night on my acreage in Texas. Outside of the city you can still see the stars. LOVE this app!!! Knowing where to look and identifying the stars and the time of year for best viewing is outstanding. Thanks
Reboot Device! 5/5
By iRobot Not Working
I too was stuck on Ursa Major. Tried deleting and reinstalling app with no luck. Rebooted iPhone and app works great!
Doesn’t work anymore 2/5
By Brandon Y
As others have mentioned, this once great app has completely stopped working. Now when you open the app, it appears to be stuck and there’s nothing you can do about it until the developers fix the app.
Doesn’t work anymore 2/5
I loved this app but now it’s stuck on the Ursa Major and won’t do anything. I’ve gone through the settings and allowed constant location following but nothing works. Was one of my favorites for years
It used to work, but no longer 2/5
It used to work and I enjoyed it a lot. Quite accurate and user-friendly. But now, all of a sudden, it stopped working. I have the Ursa Major’s image locked on the screen and, no matter where I move my camera, the Ursa Major’s image stays there. Calibration is not posible either. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but still not working. I hope they will fix this issue and make me come back to change my review to 5 stars (as it deserved before)
One of the best apps 5/5
By that one 12 y/o
I pair it with my telescope to veiw saturn and more, best app ive ever used
Cool fun app! 5/5
By Lowage Inc

SkyView app 5/5
I recommend this app to everyone in my life who loves this type of stuff
Does not work correctly 2/5
when I was in Europe, the application showed correctly. I'm in LA now. I see the moon in the night sky and the app shows it in the opposite direction. does not work correctly
Me being the astrological nerd I am I enjoy this app but i wish it would let you know more about what your looking at
Awesome and free 5/5
To the developers of this app, you are appreciated 👌🏽
Is fake 1/5
By Abdou @
Is fake. try it in your room you will still see the same thing. the same starts, the same planet, how is that possible?
Fun app 5/5
I’ve been using this app for a few years and it is easy and fun to use.
Last night I saw Jupiter in the sky outside my window! (The app identified what planet I was looking at). Thrilling!
How can I get rid of the circle when I take a picture?
Not quite free 1/5
It’s only free to download, otherwise it’s a subscription. Why don’t you just say that so it doesn’t waste peoples time?
Great app! 5/5
I’ve been using this app for awhile and it’s great!
For people having issues with compass location, make sure you have compass calibration turned on in settings.
Go to Settings | Privacy | Location Services | System Services
Verify Compass Calibration is enabled.
Hope this helps!
Great app. Been using for years.

Star Sailor 5/5
I love this app! The grandkids and myself love opening it up and gaze at the stars. The photo option is great. We have become star sailors!
BEST WAY TO LEARN THE STARS & MORE 5/5
Awesome visuals & Accurate information in great detail with the simplicity of just point and shoot with your phone just brings a smile to my face every time! Love showing how it works to friends and family. No better or easier way to learn the stars!!
this app glitches out on me every time. it used to work a year ago but every time i open it now it doesn’t show any constellations and is frozen on half of ursula major. i have deleted and redownloaded twice, nothing fixed

An awesome app for kids to learn 5/5
By aka Ssundee and DanTDM
This app teaches you about our solar system in a fun way you get to look around you and see a ton of stars and constellations I give this a 6/5
I love this app. I used it all the time. Suddenly it stopped working. I bought the upgrade and still wouldn’t work. I reached out twice to the developers and nothing. I tried other apps but honestly, this one was the best. I wish they would give an update.
Used to work.. not anymore….. 1/5
By so nee
This app used to work great, after a while it got spotty, now it’s all gone. I move my phone around and nothing pops up. It only shows north and a red line …… that’s it. :(
iPhone 11 1/5
Will not work on iPhone 11. Help Me!
SkyView Lite! 5/5
By honey bee 🐝🍯
So some people are confused about how there are constellations on objects and/or pointing on the ground. The earth is round, and you are not the only person that can see stars, the stars are all around you but you can’t see them because you are in a different place. You also might see a star/planet above you’re head, then right next to you, that is because earth is rotating and planets are also moving. The app is not fake, the constellations are in the right spot, some starts might be too dim, or light are too bright. You also can’t have any interference with magnets or you’re compass might not work. If you want to check if it’s real or working, then look in the sky (without the app) and find a constellation within the app. I’ve had zero problems with this app, and everything seems to be right, you might need to update it to find more stars. I 100% recommend SkyView Lite! (Also the Big Dipper is in a bear constellation)
Nice to have 4/5
By star Xplorer
Use quite a bit. Very handy to find planets and constellations
As awesome as the universe! 5/5
By Monty Sr.
SkyView Lite has brought me hours of enjoyment. My love affair with the heavens started as a child and has continued to grow my entire life. As a military pilot and open water sailor I’ve had so many opportunities to view the sky. I used to carry a field guide book with me. For the last couple of years SkyView has offered me an amazing learning experience, one of completely amazing immersion. It’s also amazing to watch the faces of friends when we’re just sitting around outside and I open the app. I love and appreciate this app. It’s stunning.
Nothing better than this! 5/5
I have been using SkyView Lite for about 3 years, and it has seriously been a great outer space app! I love that it’s so accurate and that it has all the information you want to know about the empty space above. It even works offline! Amazing app! Well done you creators 👏👏👏👏👏👏
Well thought out 3/5
It’s just not very accurate
Just really fun 5/5
I you this app with my sister and we love star gazing I found this app and LOVED IT immediately. Recommend and hope you enjoy as well
Really good 5/5
By anonymous 24626
This can show you where the Hubble telescope and the international space station and some constellations.
So glad I found this app while camping! 5/5
Downloaded this app on a whim while stargazing in the countryside one night. Tracking the International Space Station’s trajectory up over the horizon and watching it fly across the sky was awesome!
Not even close 2/5
By Madtown, WI
Couldn’t even identify the Big Dipper. This is without a doubt the most inaccurate sky map app I’ve ever used.
Gods wonderful night sky 5/5
This app, what a wonderful tool to use to search the night sky. While using this app with family and friends especially on vacation it puts things in perspective. I recommend using this app to create wonderful conversation with those you love about The wonders of God‘s handy work
It’s amazing 5/5
Hi I think this app is good for kids btw I am a kid cause it helps you learn about stars and Satellites💫🛰📡
I think it’s fun to to try to find yourZodiac sign ps ima Gemini ♊️
Free version is sufficient 5/5
This is a great app that has fascinated people I’ve been hanging out with. We will see a constellation and wonder if it’s the big or Little Dipper before I pull out this app and point it at the sky. Even strangers want to take a look.
You do not need to buy the full version. With the free version you can see all the constellations as well as the location of the ISS and planets in our solar system. It’s a great app for quick identification.
Just amazing 5/5
I’m using the free version and my mind is blown. Thank you so much for making such an amazing app.
It is amazing and i want to say this, before i get this app i found a big star and i taught it is a star but my sisters said no it can be a planet and they download it and they show me the jupiter that thing i thaught it is a big star
Works good love it 👍🏻 5/5
App works, annoyed that they ask me to upgrade every time I use the app and I would upgrade if it was a one time purchase but seems absurd that they want a continual fee to use premium version
