  • Fun App, Love It!

    I wish there was a way to add notes to sightings I’ve made. I’ve spotted a few satellites in my horribly light polluted sky and wish I could add notes to re-spot them. Identifying stars & the different planets is fun. Unfortunately to light polluted here to spot galaxies, nedula, etc. 😥
  • Tracked the ISS (International space station)

    Because of the app, I got to track the ISS (International space station) which flew right over my house. That’s thing if FAST! I am 56 years old and have never seen anything like that before. I found it quite amazing and thrilling. All thanks to this wonderful app that was correct with times and placement. I have used this on my iPad & iPhone. I originally downloaded it to figure out where the consultations were and it is great for finding those. My favorite of course is Orion. I get to see all the constellations from the horoscopes and what time of year they will be visible. This app will even show you all the space junk floating around in space and the names of them. I never knew there were so many Russian made and launched satellites up there floating around until I got this app. It’s truly a wonderful app and I have and am currently thoroughly enjoying it.
  • Used to be great. Now won’t calibrate

    One of the few apps I ever paid for but won’t calibrate anymore and horizon line is way off. Does it know I’m at 6,020 feet elevation? Six months since last update?!?
  • Garbage.

    This app is way off and has been for quite a while. Calibration does no good and I can’t find a way to contact developer. So I’ll just leave a review instead. Can’t even get it lined up with the moon. Unreal.

    I love this app for stargazing. I love space and it is a small amount of money to pay, and free if you get the lite version. I highly recommend this app for anyone who is as interested in space as I am.
  • Won’t Calibrate

    Had this app for years. For whatever reason the app won’t calibrate now. Everything else works but the heading remains on north.
  • Love it

  • Not optimized for newest iPhones

    This app is fantastic, only problem is it’s not optimized for newest iPhones (X and above). In night mode the screen turns red which is great, but the white bar remains at the bottom rendering the feature nearly useless.
  • I Literally Wanted an iPhone so I Could Use this App

    This is a really smooth running app, especially on the newest iOS update. I like to use this for astrological as well as educational purposes. The night mode is perfect for Star gazing, it allows you to identify exactly which star you’re looking at without blinding you with blue light and making it hard to see the stars. This app is a really good resource and it’s beautifully made. 5/5 all around 🙌🌏🪐💫⭐️✨
