Outdated satellite database 1/5
I don’t think this app is worth the money as the satellite database is outdated . If you just want to spin the globe and see the dots, then is the good way to waste the money. Will not recommend it.
Inaccurate pass times now 1/5
I’ve been using this app for quite some time, but not every single night until six months ago; beginning in April of 2019, I’ve going outside and using it to spot satellites for 60-90 minutes every night. My favorite is always ISS, because it’s so bright, but I’d always spot tons of others with the help of this app. I’d check the upcoming days for when my view for ISS would be “excellent” and click to set those reminders. Everything was working perfectly until sometime in September.
For the past 3-4weeks, I’ve been going out when the reminders go off, always during the time frame when ISS is most bright for me — the 30 minutes before or after nautical twilight — I would stand there waiting, watching the AR view showing where it should be crossing the sky, but I couldn’t see a thing. It was so frustrating! Were there high clouds I couldn’t see? Smoke in the atmosphere blocking it from view? Did the recent autumnal equinox (and the shifting of the sun to the south) have something to do with it, making it less bright this time of year or something? What the heck was the problem??? But even though I could see stars quite clearly, no ISS.
After that happening to me again tonight, I finally opened two other satellite tracking apps I have and both of them said ISS would be passing my location 30 minutes later. What? So I set my timer, went back out in 30 minutes, looked at the position view in those, and there ISS was, bight as could be, crossing the sky exactly when and where those apps said it would be.
I checked to see if I might have missed an app update. Nope. My location is definitely correct in the app, so that’s not the problem. The times have just gone wonky somehow. Please, please, please look into this!
If/when it’s working for me again, I’ll change my review to 5-stars, because I have multiple satellite tracking apps, but this is my absolute favorite and the only one I ever use, normally, but it’s useless for finding anything when it’s not accurate.
Hacking attempt immediately after purchase 1/5
I purchased the bundle, and shortly after I got a notification on my iPhone that someone was trying to sign in to my account in India. Just seems fishy. Otherwise the app is cool, but the situation freaks me out too much.
Views from space station 5/5
Enjoy watching is great way to see the earth, and just relax
It would be better if... 2/5
By The Original Spoo
It included all of the amateur radio satellites. The app should allow the end user to specify URL for TLEs for satellites.
Not so good 2/5
I was really hoping this app would help locate satellites at night time. For starters, it couldn’t find my location manually, and location services was enabled. Then it didn’t find my location automatically. The closest it came was Central Florida and only one satellite was visible, and I’m in NE area.
There should’ve been thousands of satellites visible.
Bad update!!! 1/5
So before, you used to be able to see the entire earth and scroll around to see the satellites in the sky. Now you CAN’T! Please fix this. You can only get a view from only where you stand and you have to move your phone around to find stuff. Very annoying. All there was is a simple button that changed from a personal view to an earth view. The button is gone! Please update it and add it back!!!
They ruined a great app 1/5
By Wont be fooled again also
Before the changes they made recently this was a cool app now it is the ugly twin of Skyview. It used to be a view looking at the earth so you could see any object circling earth with earth as the background, you could use your fingers and move the earth to find any object. Now the view is from the earth to the sky just like SkyView and you have to move your body around and point your phone to the sky to find the object you want to locate, that is stupid. Whoever first programmed this app a few years ago when I bought it was a genius. Whoever updated it recently is an idiot. Give me back the Satellite View I purchased not this SkyView clown I mean clone!
Wow- abysmal... 1/5
What happened? No longer do I have a view of the earth , showing the map of the satellites and their paths across its view. This renders this app nearly useless. Just frustrating now. That’s all it is. One single essential button now missing. Perhaps it is only a bug affecting SE iPhones... if that is the case I can only pray you do an patch that resolves it. If it is a new “feature “ then the app is no longer of any use.
Not good 1/5
By I'd rather walk or even crawl
Latest update turns what was an easy to use app into a difficult to use app. Right out of apples’ playbook.
Just what is wrong with simplicity and ease of use?
Can’t give it the “no stars” it deserves, have to give it one star. Male bovine feces.
In Oregon and believe it or not, have clouds! This is great while in the hot tub wishing for a sky
Please Fix! 1/5
Would you PLEASE let the app use the last current location when opening? Why do I have to use location services every time?? What’s the big deal?
PLEASE!!!!! FIX!!!!! Thank you!!
Great app!!! 4/5
Does exactly what I needed. Two things though. One is that the search doesn’t seem to bring up the satellite I’m interested in. If I find it by category and then type the exact name in, search doesn’t find it. The other, would be nice for a future release, would be if the user could enter a two line element set for an object not in the database.
Search Function Broken 2/5
Try to search for Satellites that I know are in the database, but the app says "no results". For example with the Saudisat satellites: type "Saudi" into the search bar, and you get "no results". However Saudisat SO-50 is in the database, you just have to browse through all the categories of Satellites until you find it; but you can't find it using the search tool. This is a serious impediment to using this app. Try searching for ISS or Zarya, and you get "no results". This would be a 10 star app if the search function worked.

Please update. This used to be an awesome app when it worked.
Doesn’t see everything 2/5
I wanted an app which allows me to point at a satellite moving overhead and have the app ID what I see.
It doesn’t. You have to go through every category and guess what it is.
If I can see it, it should be able to be seen in the “Brightest” category.
I like the augmented reality. But if I can see it, it should be visible.
Updated and working again!!! 5/5
Thank you for updating this app!!
Works in iOS 11 now 5/5
By Seattle vacation
This app is awesome but it doesn’t work with iOS 11. I’m still giving 5 stars because it will probably be fixed soon. Edit: seeing as the last update was 3 years ago and iOS 11 has been out for months this app likely won’t work for a long time. Edit 2 thankfully the app was updated, works fine. 5 stars.
Needs Update 3/5
I love this app but I can’t use it now until there’s an update. Will they update it??
OS 11 update 1/5
By Aidan Shaffer
The app needs an update for OS 11, and to include the newer Chinese space station Tiangong 2.
Also a lunar map/globe is needed for the google lunar xprise and Chinese lunar landings.
Do not buy until they update it 2/5
Was a great app until ios11 broke it. They still haven’t updated it so if you have iOS 11 it won’t work. Hope they fix it someday
Please update app for iOS 11. I loved using this app, but now it’s not usable at all on the latest iOS software.
iOS 11 support 5/5
Love this app. Would even pay a yearly subscription for it but when will we see iOS 11 support?

I love this app, it makes the sky so much fun. I'm just so disappointed that when I update to iOS 11, it will no longer work. I sincerely hope that somebody will update it. We'll all be so grateful.
Please update your app to iOS 11 1/5
You need to update your app I paid for it and now it doesn’t work.

Does not work with iOS 11 1/5
Enjoyed this app until the new iOS 11 update. It’s pretty much worthless now since it won’t even open. Shouldn’t take this long to update, thousands of apps were functional right after update

Perfect for Ham use but does not work with iOS 11! 1/5
By The Asset 006
If you're looking to track ham sats, this is the perfect app. It would be nice if it was updated to 64bit for compatibility with iOS 11.
Not Compatible with iPhone 7!! 1/5
I liked using this app when I had the iPhone 6. Switched to the iPhone 7 and it was the only app I had that did not work. Even says it on top of the app search...developers need to upgrade app for it to work on iOS 11. I normally wouldn’t care and go on to find a competitor’s app but I paid for a bundle with star location app and I want it to work. 2 stars for enjoying it on the iPhone 6 but not being able to use it on the iPhone 7. Get it together if I just feel ripped off!
Please update to iOS 11 5/5
Apples nazi gestapo regimen requires you to push forward. Your app no longer works since the recent brainwashing update. Look forward to seeing it in action again.
Please Update 1/5
Just purchased but doesn’t work with version 11. Please update!!!!!
Update needed 1/5
By Jack frost3653
Can you please update the app for IOS 11?
Buyer beware! No iOS 11 Support 1/5
Don’t spend your money will not work with the new iOS 11! The app has not been updated in three years.
Please update for iOS 11 5/5
This is a perfect app for finding satellites. I keep getting the message that it's going to not work in iOS 11. I know Skyview shows some of the same information but I can't get the view of the Earth with the satellites orbiting it. Skyview only shows the augmented reality view.
Not supported by IOS 11 3/5
Love it and would live it more if the author would update it as the IOS Versions change.
Stopped working 1/5
Needs an iOS 11 update
I like it 5/5
Used it for two years. No problems with it.
I need a refund! 1/5
Awful! I went to download it and got a message to upgrade my phone so I did then I downloaded it. Now when I try to open it I get a message that the app needs to update because it won’t work with iOS 11. What a rip off!!😡
