SkyView® app reviews

  • Not working on my iPhone 11 1/5

    By PortnoyF
    Ever since I got my new iPhone 11 Pro it stopped working. The background sky does not change as I move my phone. Tried to install/uninstall and that didn’t help. Very disappointed
  • Cannot get music to play 2/5

    By robb234567890
    Had the free version and upgraded to the paid. No music now???
  • View Never Changes..! 3/5

    Program works perfectly on my iPad but the sky view won’t change on my iPhone. I’ve written to the developers twice with no answer to this problem. Rocket bodies and satellites rotate but nothing else works. I cannot recommend this for an iPhone. I don’t want my money back; I just want the app to work..!
  • ISS location is incorrect 4/5

    By smbaber
    I tried a couple of times and it showed the wrong location of ISS. I could see ISS myself from earth but this app shows ISS on the other side not even near by.
  • Won’t work on IPhone 11 1/5

    By NQK
    Worked fine on my iPhone X, but it doesn’t on iPhone 11. Open it up and it’s just stuck on the same constellation. I’ve emailed the developers over a month ago but never got a reply. This used to be one of my favorite apps. :(
  • Wow 5/5

    By Arhkenstone
    I’m impressed. I can finally learn star patterns with awesome augmented reality.
  • Nothing is in sync.. 1/5

    By nkawtg
    Over the last several months objects are not where the app says they should be. For example the International Space Station is so far off with timing/position it’s often hours off. There’s no method in the app to report issues/bugs such as this.
  • Amazing app!! 5/5

    By Tevin67
    As someone who took astronomy in college, this app is insanely accurate at identifying objects in the sky with your camera. I was able to identify a UFO with my naked eye, then use the app to find out it was the body of an old rocket.
  • Excellent 5/5

    By ibikeride2
  • I love this app 5/5

    By cadgan
    I have had this app for years and it still never gets old.
  • Celestial Calligraphy! 4/5

    By PaintnPaper
    I love taking my grandkids out at night and using Skyview to help them find the stars! The app is wonderful .
  • Recommend it highly! 5/5

    By conseler
    Use it often. Love it and already recommended it to many people. Great app. Would LOVE to see a few changes, enhancements, such as ability to better see MY VUEW, that is, sort of bring my perspective into focus and filter OUT the stuff I cannot see. This would help me learn MY SKY and I could then go deeper from there. Since I see nearly EVERYTHING through the App view, I often have difficulty pinpointing the name of EXACTLY which star, comet, satellite I am actually observing with my little eye. I want to know what THAT LIGHT I SEE is, so I can think on what I am looking at more fully. Sometimes I cannot be sure, since once the app screen comes on, we’ll, some further away lights become brighter than the one Zi am actually looking at without looking through the app viewer. WHEW!!!! Hard to explain. THANKS!!
  • Fun app 5/5

    By Dego57
    I find it fun and I use it to show grandkids there stars here in the north. Can’t find anything wrong with it!
  • A planetarium in my hands!!! Beautiful! 5/5

    By PFS.
    I love this app! I have been using this app for 5 years, and am so happy it exists! It lets you explore the sky! And the music is so amazing! Sometimes I’ll just open the app, even at daytime, to explore what’s surrounding us at that moment. I have gifted friends with this app too! And they loved it!
  • Still love it after years 5/5

    By freddy-wan
    Our family still loves this app after 4 or 5 years? We use for reference all the time.
  • Thanks 5/5

    By Justmegarry
    Use it everyday thanks again GEt
  • Amazing Experience 5/5

    By Excellencia2017
    Nature is superbly beautiful. This app enables me to explore what’s up there in an amazing and personal way. Especially, on outdoor walks in the night.
  • Great! Just one issue 4/5

    By YourABuckshoa
    Finding planets in our solar system with the app is easy and cool. Except when I try to find a specific Star like Betelgeuse and it’s surrounded by multiple stars and you aim your phone in the sky to try to find which one it is is really hard. I don’t know if there is a way to make it easier but overall really cool app. Some ideas would be adding exoplanets.
  • Great app for Astronomy 5/5

    By silentjimbo
    Easy to use. A lot of cool features and a great overview of the solar system.
  • Excellent 5/5

    Easy to use, accurate and interesting.
  • An all time favorite 5/5

    By Kaotiko
    Best app ever. I even use it during the day. Keep my mind busy. Thanks for a great app.
  • *224488% 4/5

    By *224488%
    This is an interesting educational application to enjoy.
  • Must give one star 1/5

    By Notapaidreviewer
    No compass calibration which is needed. Despite other apps which can use you GPS location when offline this app can't. You must be connected to the internet. Even then, it can't locate your position. Using other free sky apps instead.
  • Best space app! 5/5

    By Steelers074386
    This app is so simple to use. I love that they use AR so I can see exactly where everything is in the sky. I definitely recommend this app!
  • Great app! Few suggestions 4/5

    By - Researcher
    Although the app feels pretty complete, it would be nice to be able to see black holes, and maybe let the users inspect and view planets on a closer scale (i.e. Saturn and it’s countless moons, Jupiter’s red spot, moon craters etc). Not at all complaining, but in science and technological industries, there is always room for improvement :)
  • Cool and informative, but could use a few things 3/5

    By testtrack king
    I initially tried the SkyView Lite with my son after buying him a telescope a few weeks back. My initial thoughts of the app were great (still is) as you can point up, down, side-to-side and behind you and find what’s out there. This gets me dizzy and somewhat lost when trying relocate the object through the telescope. A few nights back, we went to a viewing event and found another similar app (stellarium) which did not have (could be user settings) all of the constellation artwork pop ups and things getting in the way to try and find certain nebula and various other objects. His app simplified with a real-time view (potentially used a light pollution map) of what’s visible by the eye, to help find objects. He also did not have to point the app up, he held it at ground level and was able to match the stars visible currently to the eye, vs holding up the phone and getting lost within all the stars in the sky with your app. Long story short I found some settings in this app to remove the pop up constellation artwork and reduce some of the stars, planets and satellites, however I’m not able to eliminate the point up to see option. Is there a setting for that in this app? I would like to hold the phone flat like I’m texting and see a real time view of what’s viewable with my eye, vs getting dizzy with the moving and spinning of the app.
  • Get this app! 5/5

    By Mia Santiago
    I love the paid version of this app. Try the free version as that is great as well. Then decide for yourself.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By Annabelllover
    I think I like the music as much as the visuals. It gives star gazing (especially with the sense of history afforded by the constellations) an ethereal feeling.
  • PLEASE CHANGE THIS!!!!!! 2/5

    By connoiseur
    I hate the interference of the Astro signs. It ruins my serious interest in learning astronomy. Why not send include a button to turn them off? I rejected your app only because of this childish feature!!!
  • Amazing app 5/5

    By Pastor Ralph
    Not only fascinating but educational. The ability to customize is an added feature. I even love the background music which I find calming and relaxing. Thanks.
  • Don’t like the changes. 1/5

    By 1frustrating
    App is hard to use and not intuitive.
  • Bad calibration 1/5

    By FoxyByte87
    I've been using the app for awhile and it was cool, but now it is showing everything far from where it actually should be. It is set to the correct date and time but nothing is shown correctly.
  • Doesn't Work 1/5

    By RoMuzik
    App needs to be updated. It just freezes on the home screen even after reinstallation.
  • Why is Hawai’i not included in the location list? 3/5

    By Andro-55
    I am staying near Honolulu and wanted to use SkyView but it was unable to identify my location either automatically or manually. I had to select French Polynesia as the nearest Island in the location list. Shame! Please update the list to include Hawai’i
  • Won’t calibrate correctly. 1/5

    By leow142
    I’m sitting here staring at a beautiful full moon just over the Caribbean Sea. The app is telling me that the moon should be directly south! 😂😂😂 I cant even get it to calibrate correctly manually. It’s got the horizon much higher than it actually is. And yes, I have the correct coordinates. I’m about to delete this app and find a smarter one.
  • Common Names Please 4/5

    By Trout-Bumm
    As for naming the constellations, I am accustomed to “Big Dipper,” and “Little Dipper.” The constellation overlay gets pretty confusing when I see the outline of a little bear where I am expecting to see dipper, which is presented in the sky. This is a five-star app for identifying celestial bodies, but the presentation overlays of the celestial icons gets confusing when trying to identify objects within my local night sky. I am a true amateur at identifying the celestial bodies. My primary objective is to identify a particular bright “star” and get the info about it, and this app is excellent at this.
  • Stuck in one location. 1/5

    By JayMiche
    Waste of time and money! Beware before you purchase!!
  • To foggy to see stars use this app!! 5/5

    By french french trench

  • Best app of all time 5/5

    By rivz2
    Favourite app on god
  • Needs dwarf planets 3/5

    By EFrame1
    I will give this app 5 stars when they have the dwarf planets
  • Voyager 1 and 2 Spacecrafts 5/5

    By desertskies1
    First of all I would like to say that this is my favorite app of all time. My friend and I have spent many nights far out in the Nevada desert exploring the universe, guided by SkyView. There are two objects though that I was wondering if you could add to SkyView; would it be possible to include the location of the Voyager spacecrafts? According to NASA, they are currently about 13,000,000+ miles out there, it would be fun to point the app out there and imagine those little spacecrafts cruising out into interstellar space. Thank you very much
  • Love this 5/5

    By goodeebo
    Since I was a small child I loved Look up at night at 55 I still find time for it and peace within is found.
  • What’s the difference? 1/5

    By Staboogie031
    Someone please tell me the difference between this app and SkyView lite??? Thanksss
  • SkyView Improvement 4/5

    By W3FFU
    SkyView is great for a few seconds but the drawings of the constellations are so bright that they drown out the stars. Please omit the pictures or make them much fainter or have them controllable in brightness.....Jim, an amateur astronomer
  • Such a great app! 5/5

    By Douglton
    Really helps you quickly find the general area of objects on the go.
  • SkyView 5/5

    By TW/2B
    What a wonderful way to learn and research Space, Stars, Planets, Satellites, Ect. I’m learning to respect everything out there, Love It It’s a 10+ Thanks SkyView Creators 🤟
  • Outstanding App 5/5

    By JohnnyBuckLDEM
    I am loving this app. My grandchildren and I have so much fun with it!!!!
  • Fails on above horizon satellites 3/5

    By littlegus123
    Often on my back deck at night I can see satellites traveling by. I bought this app and the upgrade. It works great for all other things, except it does not display any satellites above the horizon. Countless satellites are displayed below the horizon. Recently I watched one with my naked eye, pointed my phone at it and nothing on the screen?????
  • Just plain love it 5/5

    By bmds4x41
    Had to write how much I love this. It's great laying in bed indoors out of the rain and still have a beautiful night sky overhead. Camping with kids this is entertaining and educational. Finding the actual stars and verifying that they were right is loads of fun.
