Decent stargazer app. Not as comprehensive as I would like missing Draco which is one of my favorite constellations but works offline and has helped me pin down the more iconic constellations while I’m on the ocean.

Venus should be spinning backwards, but on the app Venus spins the wrong way. The app is awesome! I love it!
SkyView lite 5/5
OMG... we have so much fun looking at the sky... this is an awesome app
By sweetned loops
This is a really cool app. I have been able to use this app for projects on the stars, I've gotten all As . Also it has been very interesting learning about the stars. This app is the perfect example of above and beyond programming and facts🌟

All the basics... 5/5
By Iona Gunn
Basic night or day star location finder with basic info on each.
Great app! 5/5
For a free app this is better than all the others I’ve used. It’s accurate and gives you great illustration. I was amazed and excited to see the location of planets and the constellations. Well done!
This is an amazing tool! 5/5
This app is fascinating! AND it’s free! I use it constantly, and like others have said, it brings me joy and sense of wonder. My grandson loves it.
Love it and hoping 5/5
By Problem is
I love this app and am hoping that when my birth month comes around (September) I will be able to see all the constellations that come around in that month I'm also hoping to see constellations as the month changes
Useless for spotting ISS 1/5
will be downloading something else.
This company has updated features of this app several times. In 2013 I bought this app and they changed it to a fully free app. Then they brought it back as a paid app and I lost my premium version. This company will steal from you out right they are dishonest and I recommend you immediately seek a different program.
Marcia Jean’s Review 5/5
By No sounds, too.
I love this app and have learned so much from it! It’s like having an expensive telescope I can put in my pocket😎 I love being able to see where the sun is just before it rises...☀️
Fun with my son 5/5
This app is so much fun. My 7 year old son is obsessed with space. And this app helps to bring it to life. He loves the pictures of the planets. And being able to tract their rotation through out the day.
Amazing app 5/5
I downloaded it to see if I was really looking at Venus and I was right! And then realized I could see all the stars in the sky AND planets AND the constellations. I am super impressed with this app and having so much fun!
Sky view Light 5/5
By Ardie 88
Really nice and entertaining program for all ages. Absolutely love it.
Amazing Universe 4/5
I love UI and AR looking like real in space. It is educational. My kid and I learn a lot from this app. It is a must app to download.
Best App going 5/5
This is one of the most used apps on my phone.
Best space app ever! 5/5
I have always loved space my entire life and this app is amazing to use!!👍

Grandson and a tent 5/5
By climb on course
Best tool on my hip. Point show and then listen to my 7 year old grandson tell the same stories I heard as a child. Yes the moon is made of cheese.
Overall love it but... 4/5
I checked my sign the correct way and it turns out I wasn’t what I thought but when I looked it up i was right the first time and my family kept saying that I was right the first time so your app needs a bit of calibration. But overall I love how you can explore the universe with an unaugmented view.
Want to like it 2/5
Wish I could attach an image to this review...I’m trying for two nights now to figure out if a planet is mars or Venus. It shows both planets, with the actual planet in between them. Size of planets is idiotically large
It’s all relative(!,?) 4/5
This is opening my mind. 1st where’s home? We’ll start with temperate zone, country, and recently noticing planet. “Time is in there somewhere.” I’m all relative in this growing “and changing” experience. Always having the ability of a clear sky makes me more curious. Have a nice night wherever and whenever you are.
Love it! 5/5
By Spider monkey 🐒
When I was using a different app it was giving me a lot of trouble with the location and set up. With this app it’s quick and easy. Love that they add facts for free too!!!
(PS. NOT A ROBOT OR PAYED AT ALL (NOT SARCASM) BELIEVE ME!!!!! 😥😂)
Best app 5/5
By Hit Khoikhoi
Perhaps I use the básica version it's incredible
Love it 5/5
By Rylee Westenskow
I love this app!! I haven’t learned more about the stars, constellations , and planets in my entire life. This app is super useful and fun!! If you love the stars, and everything to do with space then you will love this app.♥️ I love the stars and universe!!
Great performance for free app 5/5
SkyView 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.
Since the app was last updated, the music doesn’t play. I’ve tried every setting I could possibly think of, but no dice. I can only assume the update made it so you have to buy the upgrade to hear the music now. I can’t think of anything else. If I’m right, it’s a dirty trick 👎🏻!!!!
Guys it's so accurate and cool! Perfect for telescope viewing. Just note that there are some excessive extra purchases...
Sky view 1/5
Didn’t calibrate and don’t know how to make it calibrate. Any suggestions?? Other people have it and said it calibrated itself. Mine doesn’t work. ????
Needs one improvement 4/5
This app is a lot of fun but I can’t give it 5 stars unless they add Pluto to it.
Way more than just stars 5/5
Honestly only downloaded this app thinking it has had stars. It wasn’t til my 3rd or 4th time going on the app that I saw venis. Just so happens venis was visible by the naked eye that day!!!! This app will have you doing 360s and going upside down looking at the universe from earths perspective!!!! I never ever write reviews but I have been on the app for like 45 mins so I have to compliment the creators.. ps I have never been so excited to look up or down at the stars lol
I don’t think this is right... 2/5
Theplanetstoday.com for instance has Jupiter in Scorpio but while I look thru the app it is in libra.... so what’s the deal? It seems to me from what I can find elsewhere it is in fact in Scorpio... The calibration seems kooky, I have good service on a new iPhone, Lame cause I’d really like to use this app and would buy upgrades too if I could trust it wouldn’t be lame, sorry but I gotta give it a 2....
I LOVE IT 5/5
This app is absolutely beautiful. There are so much fanisating things to look at. Only downside, was the fact that I could only see 5 planets. Although the app can quite exquisitely track the planets/stars movement. Anyways! This app is AWESOME! And I will be severely recommending it to everyone I interact with in the foreseeing future.😊
Love this app. Will Falcon Heavy and Starman make it on here?
So far so good
When I take a picture , app crashes 1/5
By David 57843:)$,$
Every time I try to take a picture and save it to photo the app crashes
Very good App
Out of this world! 5/5
This app is one of my favorites! It amazes me how precise the celestial objects are down... all in a beautiful, simple interface. It’s the perfect pocket guide for all night sky lovers out there!🌚🌙🌝
So cool, so easy to use!!!! 5/5
The ultimate “point and shoot” for clear night viewing.
I find it fascinating 5/5
By Bitty Gurl11
this app is amazing, often makes me comprehend my place and existance in the universe, its interesting to see where the planets are in the sky, even in the day time... it allows me to easily see patterns in the sky, helps me learn and i can use alot of words to explain this app but im too lazy to lol
Sky View 5/5
By tide viewer
It's so fun!!! 🌎🌕☄️💫 5/5
I love this app so much I have not stopped using it since I got it!
Breath taking 5/5
I walk to work in the morning and was wondering what those two stars named. I installed the app, opened it up, pointed to the objects and literally gasped at the beautiful images on my phone. I highly recommend this app!
Skyview deserves 20 stars!! 5/5
By gma teacher
I’m a teacher, it’s such a and easy way to show little ones what’s outside the world.
Very easy to use 4/5
I used to use SkyOrb for star viewing. It has become clunky with newer versions. Now i try out SkyView. It is so easy to use, very smooth ,both on my iPad and iPhone. I like it!
I installed this app on my Old iPad2 about a year ago. Was impressed with it then.
Since my daughter gave me her old iPhone 5s I figured I’d give it a try. Much much more accurate and way better.
Minimal ads, good features, would be well worth the upgrade as well.
