  • Awesome App

    By nonever
    Who new that there was so much space junk! That revel alone would give it four stars. Aside from that, I learn something new each time I open the app. One of my favorites, thank you!
  • Nice Design & Features

    I love the way this app looks, and the trajectory view and augmented reality are nice features.
  • Update for iOS 11!

    By Deal_seeker
    I just bought the bundle and I can’t even use this app because the developers haven’t updated it for iOS 11. Come on man, even crappy apps have done so. Fix this so I can use it!
  • GET THIS!!!

  • Nothing is where it's supposed to be

    By pinktexasbred
    Everything is pretty much off! Even when trying to calibrate it manually after a few minutes it goes back to its original misaligned planets and constellations. Beyond annoying!
  • One of my favorite apps!!

    By Mitchyman 181
    One of the best apps I’ve seen yet. It can even be used indoors to find stars and planets and it has information on all of them. It’s fun to use and you can learn at the same time.
  • Awesome

    But don’t use the magnetic case with anything that uses the compass lol the screen will lockup and not navigate.
  • Desperately needs to be updated..

    By jkhoch
    While I used to love this app, and have an avid sky watcher to be, it hasn’t been updated in at least a year. There had been problems getting it to calibrate. I always had to do it manually, which is fine, but difficult when you don’t know which way you are facing and don’t have any obvious points to calibrate to. Now, it is just plain stuck. It doesn’t move at all, and all I can see is Draco at due north on the horizon, no matter where I am pointing. I have written the app help people and not heard back. It is disappointing. My daughter used to love this app, which was why I paid for the upgrade, but, unless they update it soon, I would not recommend this app for anyone. It will only frustrate you.
  • Perfect to use along side a telescope

    By Flyngsnow
    I've been using this app to accompany my night sky viewing with a telescope. It has been very helpful in letting me identify stars and constellations that I have been unfamiliar with. The paid version is definitely worth while. Not only will it show you all the celestial objects above the horizon, like Messier objects, but it will also show you where a bunch of man made space junk is floating above your head.
