App Reviews

  • Explore your surroundings!

    By Ali.P.S.
    I love being able to open this app whenever I see a star or constellation that I want to know more about or become familiar with. I’ve used this app on and off for a few years now but in the last few months with so much more dark time in the northern hemisphere, I have used it almost daily. I like to quiz myself and the app helps me grade my responses. I also use it to teach my two year old about the wonders in the night sky. We love it! Her favorite star: Vega. My favorite star(s): The winter triangle; Sirius, Betelgeuse, and Procyon. I love the option to display or hide constellation lines or artwork, and love that I can either show or hide the actual surroundings that my camera can see. This app is great, I highly recommend it. There’s almost nothing I would change about it except maybe if there was a way to add a link in the facts area of a selected object to either the Wikipedia page or some other information source for further knowledge exploration.
  • Virtual Reality

    By Brickolsand
    I love this app. I really have found it useful in many different time during the beginning of my curiosity into astronomy began. For example, this app has allowed me to locate Saturn and view the planet with the rings right through my backyard telescope On multiple occasions. This app allows for an immersive and breathtaking experience, on an encounter with the stars. However, I do believe the app is lacking a fundamental component that, in 2017, it should already have. I believe this app should have virtual reality integrated into its game face. In order to allow users to obtain a more integrated, breathtaking, and interactive view with the stars. It sometimes seems as well, that be in large constellations often block the view of any stars, I suggest setting that can rid of the constellation tracing. Finally, do you speak on any specifics. I would suggest an option to change the music tomorrow relaxing and euphoric socks. Other than that the app is wonderful and has been used by myself another friends for months.
  • Best Solar System Guide Ever!

    By tigger0401
    Hello. I’d like to share with you a story that just proves this app is the best solar system guide ever. It was a really late night during the summer of 2018. My sister, my mom, my dad and I were catching fire flies. I thought I saw the North Star, but SkyView Lite showed it was Venus in front of my house! Then next to it, I saw Jupiter, the moon, and Mars! And the app is completely free! This app never shows adds. With most solar system apps, it shows you what you are pointing the camera at (like if you pointed your camera at your patio, you would see your patio), or apps might show you a fake sky (like if it was in the middle of the day, it would show the sunset), but this app has a setting that you can see the pitch black starry sky in space! This app does not need WiFi, and you can use it all day, every day! Any time, any place, as long as you have your device. I hope this was a helpful review.
  • Great performance for free app

    By Scatmandylan
    SkyView Lite is stellar. It provides an augmented reality that shows planets of our solar system, the famous constellations (Orion, Ursa Minor and Major, Virgo, Libra, etc.), the Hubble telescope, the ISS, and many other stars. The stars and planets each have a charted course in reference to the Earth’s rotation and time. When a star or planet or object is tapped, it provides general information about the tapped object and can be expanded upon with an upward swipe, with a detailed picture and detailed information. Although these pictures aren’t 3D renderings that you can turn and observe, as is the case with many other apps. Aside from that, only the main solar system’s planets are shown, as well as only “important” stars. This is okay, however, because if all the stars were to be shown, then the screen would show nothing but. This app is certainly a great performing app, especially for one that is free.
  • Must Have for Night Sky’s

    By oreganoshus
    I’ve always had a version of this application on three phones over the years. They are simple and have never a problem. Just the right amount of information without a cluttered sky. !EXCEPT! in the case of the Moon. Instead of panning through the sky and coming upon the moon, and getting to actually view it or any relevant data, what you are subjected to is some infomercial and glamour picture of some lady cluttering the view and hawking her latest self-indulgent audio ramble that you can’t get rid of, since there’s no way to dismiss her so that you could view the moon by it’s ____ing self! Other than that glaring inconsistency, this is overall a well made application, which I would recommend for everyone to maintain a version on all of their iOS devices for the sake of curiosity if nothing else. Point of the sky and answer once and for all with that light is that you see...
  • nice app but beware of phone case magnet closures

    By SoUknow
    I really like this app. However, I almost deleted it because it wasn’t working with my iPhone 8 Plus. The help FAQs suggested that I calibrate the compass. Well, when I tried to calibrate the compass, it wasn’t working either! After I did a little research on the web, I found out that If you have any type of case that has a magnet closure, the compass will not work, therefore, the Star view app will not work either because it depends on the compass and the GPS. This should be one of the first things mentioned in their help/support/faqs! I have a really nice leather wallet case that holds credit cards and it has a small magnet closure in the upper right corner. if I take the iPhone out of the case this app works like a charm. I don’t think this is the fault of the app. I think it’s just nature. Magnets typically screw up compasses 😊
  • Vintage Points

    By OriginalBlueKennels
    I don't see why, space has to be viewed from the center point of planet Earth, why can't we get a different vintage point. Take Mars for example, looking back at planet earth. - this is something that bothers me, this same prospective of mine can and should be added in the real estate industry revealing views from a mountain(s) looking back towards the coordinates of interest. Google Earth, and other earth Maps Should be added for us to view earth from Mars or the moon. With a zoom in effects to give the user a 3D experience of their searched option of any plants, moons, stars, etc. A more in depth user experience to really dive into and explore the unknown places they wish to study on. With all the information of the world combined in a organized manner, as if a human was to first click on planet earth for the first time. Let's say for example, that he/she was born on Mars or the moon. So he/she would see who and what lives on planet earth, by all the information provided over a span of time in the world wide web. The same should/will be true for any plant selected through any Space exploration Application. This will prove to be readily available and useful as we as a human race, race to Mars to colonize and grow together in knowledge and in power.
  • Love This App!!!

    By rjdriscoll@harmonicendeavors
    Over the years I’ve had a curiosity about our solar system and galaxy and our relationship to them but not enough time to dig in and do the research to grasp a better understanding. This app has opened the door to spur of the moment excitement and “ahh-ha” moments (first on a camping trip in N. Michigan). I can’t say enough good things about it! My favorite so far is how it shows the arcs that the planets and stars seemed to take in our sky as we rotate on our axis and how it shows how everything in the northern hemisphere seem to revolve around Polaris and why that star must have been so important to early astronomers trying to figure all this out - using whatever their “apps” were! Last night my wife and I decided to go buy a sun dial!
  • A Lot of Information!!! Works!

    By Gorgar6
    I just watched the International Space Station. It was awesome. Brightest moving star, no blinking, no noise. Took about 25 seconds to watch from the edge of trees overhead where I am. But...the app was off in its timing by about 30 seconds. It showed that it had passed already, and I was about to give up, when it did show up. And the tracking of the ISS orbit was off a bit too, although it paralleled what I saw pretty close. I read in another review about this, so I guess it's not EXACT but could be better if a description about time delay was offered. My confidence in looking at other satellites is now off a bit now, if I had not seen the ISS first.I texted with a good geeky friend who is in to space, and he confirmed what I saw. It was great to see the ISS. Well worth it.
  • It’s great if you understand it but...

    By A-A-Ron MI
    It needs an update. Calibration is always wrong and gets more and more wrong even when set properly it changes. Manual Calibration doesn’t work either. As for understanding how it works, most of the bad ones star reviews are idiots who don't understand this app works spherically, meaning stars and planets on the ground is the other side of the earth dumb***. The data isn’t wrong. Nothing is false about it. That’s calibration issues and people being morons. “I have stars in my house” no. You don’t. You’re just dumb. Probably tell people the earth is flat too. Ive used this app for several years. iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and currently iPhone SE. I’d like to give 4.5 stars. But I’ll rate as 5.
