App Reviews

  • I love this way too much!

    I’m writing this review just because of how amazing this app is. I’m a kid who loves Astronomy, and takes it to long lengths. Just this Christmas, I got my first telescope! The Celestron 114 az Explorascope! I downloaded this app originally to see where my favorite star, Capella was located. Turns out, it had spot on location. I then got the full version, and have been using it on a weekly basis! This is an amazing app, and I look forward to using it for studying nebulas, planets, etc! I love this app mainly because I have been studying astronomy for about 5 years now, and have gone from knowing the basic 8 planets, to knowing the official names for several stars, galaxies, nebulae, and several other celestial bodies. This app is awesome for star gazing, planet watching, and exoplanet tracking! If you need a trustworthy, stable, easy to use app, download this for sure! My favorite part about this app is the mini lessons it gives you whenever you tap on a star, planet, nebula, star cluster, galaxy, you name it! I’m never downloading any other astronomy app! Thanks a bunch!! :)
  • Amazing App! One suggestion

    I really fell in love with SkyView. It makes it so easy to learn about what I'm looking at in the night sky. There's one thing I think could make the app even better: Currently the only way to look at a specific object in the sky through the app is to point and orient your device so it is facing that object, like the camera. But sometimes I would like to search around the sky without waving my phone in crazy directions, like if I'm lying in bed and want to pan over to what's under the horizon. I think it would be great to add a feature that lets you pan across the sky without needing to move your phone, so it is not oriented by the gyroscope. The view can stay at a constant zoom level, but being able to learn the stars without having to always point in that direction would be tremendously more convenient. This could be an option that you can switch on or off to keep the integrity of the original application as well. Please consider. Thanks for a wonderful contribution to the world!
  • Augmented reality

    It seems that it is mandatory to see the app with augmented reality on. I try to shut it off go back to the app and it automatically turns itself back on. That’s annoying, I love the app and want to give it a five star rating but the settings won’t let me because it’s not just the augmented reality. there’s a couple of other settings that no matter how many times you shut them off they go back to being on. I paid for the app I downloaded the app you give us the options to have it on or off and yet we don’t get to utilize those options it seems forced upon us. And also can you bring the gyroscope back to align the app the way you have it now doesn’t always work easily. If it’s not broken then don’t fix it. I really do love the app I think it’s amazing but if you could do those two things; I would appreciate it. Then somebody else mentioned about searching the surroundings without moving the phone that’s a fabulous idea

    So yesterday at night I wanted to find mars because that will be day until mars shows up again to its closest in 265 years which I’ll be dead by then. So I didn’t have a telescope so I remember that my teachers had this app and they said it’s really good to see planets and stars, so I bought it and I tried it out and we checked a star that was red with the SkyView app and... It was Mars!!!! That red little star in the sky was mars! We also saw other planets too like Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune but you can’t see it with the naked eye but the app detected it and right beside Neptune was the moon! Except the moon was closer. We didn’t see the moon because the trees were covering it. Thank you for this app! Others who see this must get this app! It’s worth it! it even works in day time too!
  • An Exciting, Interesting APP

    I’m a retired aerospace engineer and have always looked at the night sky in wonderment. We never had a family camping trip without discussions of the night sky and the amazing beauty of it all. All of us could identify the Big Dipper, Mars and the moon, but everything else was guesswork until we discovered this App. I love sitting on the back deck an simply being able to locate all the planets or that bright star in the eastern sky or the many satellites and space junk that I helped put up there. I am so happy I found this App. Educational and a great way to impress your kids or grandkids with your new found knowledge. Easy to use. I look forward to many nights of enjoyment. Thank you!
  • Great app, but music no longer works

    By Lucrezia's Delight
    I purchased this several months ago, and I love it, but the music no longer works. I’ve verified both in the app and in my phone settings that music is on, plus I’ve rebooted my phone. Is this a bug? If so, please fix. For people complaining the stars show when pointing the app at a floor or wall: you think the stars stop existing once they’re out of sight or below the horizon? The app is showing you the stars as if you were able to see through the planet, or just your wall. It’s not capturing the *actual* stars and labeling them. That would be a mighty powerful phone camera if it could do that. The app is a *map*, a star chart, to the skies. This is also why it needs calibration. Stop crying “Fake!”, and enjoy the app.
  • Super

    This app is awesome! It is by far my favorite. To be able to see so much, any time of day, is a fantastic experience. I used the light version for about 15 minutes, then knew I wanted to purchase full version. I have a 9 year old who loves to view space with a telescope. This app points him in the exact direction and time, for viewing many objects. Thanks for a great app. Update: I have been using this app for over 6 years now and it's still used at least weekly. My then 9 year old son is now 15 and has it on his own phone. My other sons, now 9 and 10 also ask to use my phone at times, just to explore the skies, even while inside the house.
  • Loose yourself in the wonder of the cosmos

    By Cool Hand Husker Fan
    I don’t know if I’m an amateur astronomer or what you would call it I am just fascinated with the wonders of the night sky. I heard about this app on a field trip with my daughters school and thought why not give it a try? Amazing and mind blowing are the first two words that come to mind. If you love to learn new things and have even a small interest in what goes on over our head as the world turns then definitely download this app(you will most certainly appreciate it ) and hold your phone up high to take a look at the night sky it is not falling it’s always there and anyone can see it from any where AMAZING
  • The Universe made easy....

    By L Humpty
    This awesome app makes answering my kids questions easy and fun!! Love it. We use it at home, on road trips, during special space events, and my fave.... camping! My only issue, which is fairly easy to adjust, is the iPhone version has to be recalibrated every time we use it. Not hard to do, but kind of a bother when we want info on a 'star' or planet quickly. Really cool that it can be filtered (or set to show multiple sets of data) to give us info on our satellites, space trash, and different missions from around the globe. Definitely a laypersons go to app for all that is in our local universe.

    This app is one of the best I've ever downloaded. It's both educational, and soothing. The background planetarium-like music sets the vibe, and the knowledge the app hits you with is a slap in the face with good, solid, sky-based info. You'll quickly learn what rides across your horizon with this thing. It will give you a warm feeling as you learn the planets and the constellations that rule your sky at night. And it that isn't enough.... it tells you where the major satellites are! Be the envy of your friends as you rattle off where the hubble, or the space station resides as you rally 'round the campfire.
