SkyView® app reviews

  • 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.
  • Great 5/5

    By gfartfdhh
    It’s great fun and educational too!
  • Same issue as other users 1/5

    By DapperShnek
    I’ve had this app for many years and used to be one of my favorites. Star images no longer update based on phone orientation.
  • Best that I have found! 5/5

    By Reynogade X
    Multifunctional and beautiful!
  • Used to be great. No more updates and calibration is off 2/5

    By Jim-B-12345
    I think this app is no longer giving updates and seems to be getting really buggy. I used to love it now I’m so annoyed as all the star maps are off with no way to calibrate it. No answers from developers either.
  • Worth It!!! 5/5

    By Negelum
    So, I was looking up at the night sky and saw a star. So I got curious and downloaded this app, turns out that “star” was actually Saturn!! I learned so much from this app and it even shows me satellites!
  • Stopped working! 1/5

    By Caraessel
    I had free lite version, it got stuck on north. I attempted manual calibration, no luck. Got the paid version hoping it would work, still no. I’ve emailed support many times. NOTHING! Hoping maybe a one star rating will get some attention for my issue.
  • Good job 5/5

    By febkydvjhcdhmc
    I Love Your app
  • What happened? 4/5

    By Zwizz
    One day went to check out the morning sky an see the ISS flyover. This app didn’t or couldn’t pick it up. It has in the past. Disappointing
  • App won’t work 1/5

    By amcripps
    Maps will no load I cannot see anything. My sky view lite wouldn’t show me the full moon or where it was on a cloudy night. I realize the app is not working now after I purchased the full version I found out neither of them work at all! Please fix this issue I used to love the SkyView.
  • Giant joke 1/5

    By Wiggaly_gigaly
    I have celestial bodies in my living room. “Stars” randomly showed up in my living room. I had satellites and cameras all over the place.
  • Not calibrated correctly 2/5

    By Stso9d
    I watch i-space station when it psses over while this app shows it in the other side of the planet...
  • Not working. 1/5

    By hdyyvvoh
    I loved this app for a couple of years but then it stopped working. Each time I open it the app is now frozen at due north with the Ursa Major constellation on screen. I tried uninstalling the lite version and paying for the full version. Still didn’t work. Tried all the possible settings and calibration options. No dice. SkyView developers, please can you help me fix this as so enjoyed using your app!!
  • Two bucks? you're joking, right? 5/5

    By Bill how swagens
    I downloaded this for my astronomy class. Living in a bright suburb i dont get to see the wide array of stars in the sky. This app is incredibly handy and so far I cant think of a single complaint.
  • Way Better Than The Others!! 5/5

    By loafercut
    Want to see tons of stars, the planets in our solar system, the Milky Way, galactic clusters, constellations, satellites, and Nebulae in perfect timing and location? Then this is TOTALLY the app for you. Don’t get the lite one get this one, there’s not a problem with it!!!
  • Looking at the stars 5/5

    By Derf Hamala
    Enjoying this app with my granddaughter, she loves finding then!
  • To hard to deal with 2/5

    By Just a Person 96
    It would be good but when I start up the app the planets are most of the time on the other side of where they really are and you have to fix it just to have it do it again if it did not do this I would give it five star but I won’t because this itself is annoying enough
  • I feel like this app is from 2090! 5/5

    By 2Womyn
    Most impressive app I’ve seen yet. To be able to see where every planet in our Milky Way amongst the billions of stars out there , almost unbelievable. I see the Hubble telescope, Jupiter, Saturn, International space station...everything, including space “junk” that’s left out there floating around. You gotta see this!
  • Frozen 1/5

    By JSmithSalon
    I’ve had this app for a long time. My family loves it. Recently when we open it it is frozen on one location and when we move it around it doesn’t change. Really sad.
  • Wow 5/5

    By grandstars
    Fun with the grandkids especially on a clear night.
  • Free works better than paid version 1/5

    When i uses the free version this app worked great. Now I’ve paid for it and it won’t calibrate. My gps works, my maps work, but this app doesn’t. Getting a refund
  • Great Night View 5/5

    By baldbutte
    I wish this had been available when I taught astronomy. It is easy to use and very complete. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in astronomy.
  • Best App in the Galaxy! 5/5

    By Sweetkheragirl
    The best $1.99 i ever spent! I would have paid 5x’s that for this app! I downloaded it almost 2 years ago. It is, hands down, my most used app on my phone and iPad. I use it daily! I love it when camping, I love it on my deck, I love it from the educational aspects, the astrological aspect, when planets are in retrograde!! I really love it when i use it with with my nieces. It is fun for them to see the planet associated with the “star” they see (or might have wished on) . Creators did a supreme job making this app.
  • My SkyView is stuck - Help! 3/5

    By Jjackson455
    Loved this app until it stopped working, when I upgraded to the $1.99 version. Please issue a fix for this.
  • Paid for app that doesn’t fully work 1/5

    By Ccsol
    I just upgraded from SkyView lite to the $1.99 version but I cannot get the music or sound effects with the paid version. The volume is up on my device, music is enabled in the app but nothing. Tried to contact the support team via email but my emails keep getting returned. Please fix this issue. Thank you
  • Tranquil 5/5

    By Alaskan dreamer
    Easy to navigate, extremely educational, sparks the imagination, helps to locate items such as the International space station just before it screams by over head. Hours of calm quiet stargazing with nice calm music which drags you into the app.
  • Sky view 4/5

    By Silky0001
    I love everything but would like to be able to turn ogg the constilations they can be distracting when i am looking at a star
  • Excellent, but need a couple of basic features 4/5

    By rdalban
    Excellent app - I use it all the time. I'm giving it four stars because it lacks an option to disengage the viewpoint from the accelerometer/compass to allow a free view of the sky map. A zoom feature would also be very helpful using this free view mode.
  • Don’t buy 1/5

    By Hector haddock
    Does not calibrate
  • EXCELLANT app 5/5

    By techman_007
    I started with the free version after I upgraded my equipment to a CELESTRON omni XLT. I set up in Northern Michigan where there is minimal light. I purchased the application and now have everything I need to identify stars and constellations. It’s a great addition to my star gazing.
  • Great app 5/5

    By outdoorsman101
    Love it! Can’t think of anything to make it better! (Except to make free😜)
  • New to the galaxy lifestyle and I love this app! 5/5

    By Jeannea707
    New to the galaxy lifestyle and I love this app! This app encourages me to read and to share my nerdy excitement with others like “hey! Saturn is underneath us!” Lol it’s a real cool app.
  • All this for free?!!!!! 5/5

    By sgt sudsy
    This is just the coolest app!!! I wish it a) auto labledtext name next to planets, and b) displayed declination and right ascension of current pointing angle
  • I think the constellations are off 1/5

    By GaymerKid
    It’s July 30th (Leo season) yet you’re app still has the sun in Cancer, isn’t this supposed to be in real time???
  • Moons? 3/5

    By Jason C Locke
    Why can’t you see the moons of other planets? I.e. When I look at Jupiter I only see Jupiter, and even when I tap on it I don’t see the moons.
  • Fabulous 5/5

    By midlandavenue

  • Opening doors.. 5/5

    By WillCrockett
    I wanted to find a cool thing to turn my grandkids on to enjoying science the way I do. I found it! This app is a wonderful conversation starter and great way to teach the kids how to be life long learner is just like their grandfather.
  • Not working 2/5

    By ERIC & JANKA
    As many times as I’ve reinstalled this app it freezes and won’t move please help....
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Eeyyo
    Features are Very Informative and educational. Something must be Wrong, yet No Upgrades, nor Upates. Thanks for This Tool. It's Not Just an App. Cheers
  • Great App. Worth learning. Some wishes? 5/5

    By Gorgar6
    Been using this app for years. I like waiting and watching for satellite sightings. I see now there is a widget of the sightings available. But the widget only shows the top of the list of sightings! Can there be a filter, sort option, or favorites option for sightings? To be able to at least select what sightings to see in the widget? Thanks for the app. I recommend this app. It’s not real friendly, but once you learn it, it’s awesome. It’s not a game.

    By btu777

    By Roger Standley

  • Sky view 5/5

    By Deborah19L
    Purchased the app yesterday. It is amazing. My son didn’t think it was accurate. It was cloudy outside and we could see the moon on the app but not in the sky then the clouds broke up a little and there was the moon. Great app.
