    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.

    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

    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!

    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!
