SkyView® app reviews

  • Stellar app! 5/5

    By Dgodfree
    Accurately outstanding - great app!
  • Fantastic App! 5/5

    By Normansboss
    This app is beyond the best of words. Well worth the small amount of money to purchase it. If you aren’t hooked on outer space already, you will be after you’ve had a chance to review our awesome space through this app.
  • Learning tool 5/5

    By megflint
    Very educational! I love this app!
  • Fun and smart! 5/5

    By daris29
    The only problem I have is that I stay up too late to catch the rising stars and planets and my neighbors might think I’m a little off looking at the sky with my phone. I love this app and find it seriously addicting but in the best way. I highly recommend this app for anyone who likes to watch the sky and isn’t sure what they are seeing. Great fun for novices like myself. Look and learn!
  • not sure 3/5

    By MyPickle❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤
    not sure how i feel about this app.. i think it’s really cool if it’s legit , but i’m not sure if it is. i was in the house and pointed it towards the tv and it was showing the big dipper. can someone tell me if i wasted my money?
  • Close.... 3/5

    By tighfjf
    For some odd reason, the app shows obscure NGC objects by default, but not the Messier objects that are visible in nearly any telescope. You have to manually enter an object’s name to display it. It would be fantastic if the app had the Messier objects always displayed, or an option to do so.
  • Amazed my grandson 5/5

    By Knittingfairy
    My 4 year old grandson has recently discovered space. Nothing makes you the Cool Gramma like being able to help him find his favorite planets. Thanks for making Gramma cool again!
  • Educational and visual 5/5

    By Nutty Squirrel in AK
    Galileo and Newton, Brahe and Copernicus would be beside themselves seeing all you have included in your app. Makes superb use of modern technology to access the wonders of a starlit sky. What a treat!
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By espinosare
    I’m disappointed in the App. I can literally point the phone at my floor and it show constellations. Waste of money.
  • Great tool 5/5

    By Baldientertainment
    Such a great tool for observing the sky above. The augmented reality is very accurate.
  • Just great 5/5

    By Corvette killer98
    This app shows in depth stats and shows their path, shows satellites suns and anything else that
  • Yo 5/5

    By Thetickpicker
    I love this app there's no other that I have found that you could be lying in your bed and look at ALL the stars planets and space stations as well. My sister loves it too. I Remain Yvonne Daniels
  • Wish it was better 1/5

    By Bluelife😉
    I love the night sky but the app is just still I move it around "8" and it still wouldn't calibrate. Wish this problem would be fixed
  • Fantastic App!!! 5/5

    By OCCD2005
    Worth every penny!
  • 5 stars 5/5

    By southies shaman
    Rate app. Have had it for years. My kids and mother in-law love to use it too. Great for hanging outside or inside
  • For the kids 5/5

    By lowriderlee
    Presented app to neighbors, they feel in love with it, simple to use just amazing , star gazing will never be the same, all children should have this, to be able to gaze at the heavens! WOW
  • I love it! 5/5

    By WhyamIstilldoingthisthisisdumb
    Honestly, stars have always fascinated me. I didn’t know much about them until I got this app. I even want to be an astronomer now! Super educational and super fun on a starry night.
  • Wow. 5/5

    By Edward1238895
    One of the best apps I’ve used. I can discover the stars with this.
  • Flexible View 5/5

    By Ehud'sDad
    I love the option to turn on manual calibration and be able set any date and time for the display so I can show my friends "look what I saw 2 nights ago!" Great app!!
  • Excellent app 5/5

    By mrebby
    Very easy to use for complete beginners looking at the night sky. I have recommended it to many people, maybe 50+. I got my first telescope 5 years ago and have advanced my knowledge of the sky and my many telescopes. But SkyView is still my go to app when out observing.
  • Zero 1/5

    By E - B
    Zero! I enjoyed it for years but it just stopped working a year or more ago. It does nothing now regardless of all my attempts to change it’s settings and to notify it’s source. System won’t allow me to give it zero stars. I’m forced to give one star.
  • Star struck? 5/5

    By mtlmadman
    Awesome app. Informative, detailed
  • Best App Ever 5/5

    By BayouJoy
    Simply THE best app
  • Great app with one suggestion 5/5

    By I am the owl
    The app is amazing. I’m an astronomy buff but I can’t memorize every constellation. This is the best reference tool I have found. My only question is, why aren’t star clusters recognized? Pleiades is part of Taurus, but it’s still it’s one group as well. I feel like it should be labeled as Pleiades.
  • Off kilter 2/5

    By Osnab
    Something is wrong. No matter what I point my (upgraded) app to, I get star names. I can be in the living room in the day time and point my phone to a blank wall and there are stars! I’ve tried emailing support, but haven’t received a reply, so hopefully I can get help here. Oh and I’ve calibrated it a lot. Thanks!
  • Awful 1/5

    By HibsMax
    In Hawai’i looking for Mars and the ISS, and this app had me spinning. Totally inconsistent. Looking at 10 o’clock one second, then 2 o’clock the next. Up. Down. Left. Right. No consistency. May as well just point randomly and name bright objects myself.
  • Bought the pro 3/5

    By James angry man
    I had the lite app and I bought the pro, when I did that I could hear the music, but when I downloaded the pro, couldn't hear the music anymore. I tried switching songs, checked my volume, nothing... Definitely broken.
  • It's almost as good as a brick 1/5

    By QuantumSam
    I get as much utility out.of this app as I would out of a brick. IT DOES NOTHING EXCEPT PLAY ANNOYING MUSIC. The app doesn't scan.it doesn't.show me.the sky I'm looking at. It only shows a static image of some stars.
  • Use it on a swivel chair and you’ll lose your mind! 5/5

    By okayme2
    I love this app... I could do this all day and night. And maybe there isn’t a better way to make use of your time—since you never know when the grid will crash and navigating by the stars will be a life saver! Get this and get to know the “dome of heaven”!
  • Great app 5/5

    By Spiderw1
    I love the stargazer app. I have never been interested in studying the stars before as it was too difficult to go out and then look everything up. I have learned a lot and will continue to use this app everyday. Thanks!
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Wallyxt
    This app was recommended during a meteor shower outing. It was fantastic.
  • The Best Out There! 5/5

    By Mista Julian
    This is the best app I’ve ever used relating to looking up at the night sky! What a way to study the universe. To be able to look up, point and Wala all the knowledge you'd ever want relating to the SolarSystem, constellations, galaxies planets, nebulas, etc. just right at your fingertips. Get this, if you don’t know where it is that you’re looking for this app will even point you right to it, not only that it will show you the time it hits horizon, a outline of the path it’s following, where it is any time day or night, just unbelievable. People today have this knowledge right at their fingertips. In my day we had to go to a Library or open up a encyclopedia find a book, open the book, find the section and read about it, also the knowledge was limited. This modern knowledge to be right at your fingertips is just unbelievable.
  • I’m addicted... 5/5

    By TacomaTud
    This app is great for learning. I find myself scanning the sky’s every chance I get. Can’t wait for clear summer sky’s!
  • I would be happier with 5/5

    By kjk!!
    I love the application I've downloaded it on every phone over the years starting with iPhone 3 I now have an X. I would really only like to add one more option... That is the ability to pinch to zoom at least to enlarge the objects if not to explore back in time to distant known stars that have since perished.
  • Amazing App 5/5

    By Jade jag
    I’ve used this app for years and it just keeps getting better.
  • Does not work with new iOS 1/5

    By ThatEricGuy12
    I used to love this app, then I got a iPhone XS.. doesn’t work.
  • I love this app! 5/5

    By Mrs.MLEM
    I can’t wait to teach my son and his friends about the stars. Something that our schools didn’t teach them very good. It is easy to use and really will be nice to use daily.
  • I love SkyView 5/5

    By 787JJS
    This is one of my favorite apps for camping, boating, etc. every time I get it out I’m amazed by the well done interface and the massive database of info. My only request would be to add the ability to tell the app where I am with a Latitude and Longitude rather than just by the nearest city. I am often using it at very remote locations and I can’t always get it oriented just right since I can’t give it precise enough location info. Otherwise it’s phenomenal. Keep updating!
  • Planetarium 5/5

    By Macrelmar
    It’s like having my own planetarium! Fascinating 💕
  • Best Astronomy App 5/5

    By Pixiem3
    I’ve used this app for years now and I’ll never stop using it. It is definitely the best star gazing app I’ve seen. I love that it gives facts about every object in the solar system. It is also cool that it can show where objects will be at what time and date. It is always on point with the sky and the objects line up perfectly. I love it, five stars!
  • Star struck 5/5

    By jaxT1964
    Best app I have ever put on my phone. I can spend hours soaking up the information you provide. I love this app!!!!!
  • App needs to update for Apple Watch io5 3/5

    By Bc5584
    Love the app and I loved that I could check my watch to see what’s out every night with the times but this no longer works with iOS 5 for Apple Watch. Please update I bought the full version.
  • An Amazing & Addicting App 5/5

    By butterflydm1978
    This app gives me the ability to explore the night sky without a telescope and it has helped me expand my astrological knowledge in a fun and addicting way. This has been my favorite app for years & I can’t wait to see what they add next.
  • please update and keep supporting ios 5/5

    By Lake weather

  • Exceptional app. 5/5

    By emelorie
    I, my whole family including my grand-daughters use and love this app. When outside sitting around a bonfire or waiting for fire works to start taking turns with the app. is such a blast. 🌌
