App Reviews

  • If you don’t have this app you’re missing out.

    By Mike Wyckoff
    I would have never known the International Space Station orbits the Earth about 15 times per day. I now watch it orbit twice just about every night. On non-cloudy nights anyway. It’s amazing. It’s like a star shooting across the night sky and Night Sky alerts us a couple minutes in advance then shows us exactly where to look. My 6 yr. old daughter has changed from wanting to be a veterinarian to wanting to be a space station driver. ;-) Not sure if the main intention of this app is educational or to get kids dreaming of space travel but it does both very well. Only had it for a few days now so it will be fun to see what else it does. I imagine we have only scratched the surface. Definitely spend the $10 on the year membership. Jumping from planet to planet and seeing the sky and stars from their perspective is worth $100. We saw a planetarium show this week at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum. This app is like your own show. There is a ton of activity going on in the night sky. It’s so much more interesting and fun to see when you know what you’re looking at.
  • They should really give more than 5 stars on this app

    By mtthwnk
    This is seriously the most amazing app you can ever download into your iPhone. I can’t believe how amazing it is to see space live, see the satellites moving, and gives information like what date it was launched, where it launched, and show descriptions of different stars and planets. It uses all AR, and it is amazing to see planets and satellites so closely and detailed. I am in love with how this app is made, and for sure deserves more than 5 stars. Developers: You have done such an outstanding amazing job with this app. Highly recommended for anyone who loves space and is into science; or just curious about live space. Love this app, and will always recommend people to have it in their iPhones.
  • Incredible

    I wanted to be an astronomer when I was younger because learning about the stars and planets and other extraterrestrial bodies was always so fascinating. I have never looked up to the sky and seen something other than magnificent beauty, and with this app I can bring back my childish wonder and appreciation for learning. Being able to identify the seemingly insignificant dots in the dark sky brings a sense of joy I honestly can’t describe. I really love how much information you can find on each and every speck in the universe. Maybe there are flaws in this app just like any other creation, but I believe that I’ll be able to look past any that I come across due to the purity I’ve found in this money-making scheme. God bless
  • Great App & great support!

    I loved the app but did not love the “Glass Constellations” that kept blocking my view and for me it was a distraction for me personally. I looked in app but the options and menu choices are so many (a very detailed app with lots of options) I got lost and did not know how to disable these. This is where the great support came in. Quickly the developer replied to my question and showed me hoe to disable these in the preferences. If you have that same concern just follow their direction and go to preferences and there are 3 boxes or buttons you can tick off for glass constellations. I just ticked all 3 off so I can see the night sky clear and beautiful. This app is an awesome support for knowing what’s in space around us. Thank you!
  • Disappointed

    By whitejww
    I have used this app for many years and proclaimed all of the great things that initially made me love it. I primarily use it in the warmer weather in the Northeast. I am guessing an upgrade or three happened since I last used it. While I was with some friends at the beach the other night we caught when we debated was a planet. When I tried to resolve the debate via this app it was like something I’d never seen. The familiar functionality I once knew was gone. If I could go back to what I once purchased and had I would be there in a heartbeat. I see there are options to upgrade but I don’t even have a clue what I’ve lost. I guess I will look for something that functions like what I came to know and love. I enjoyed many years of using and enjoying the app which made me purchase it. The enhancements were great but like they say too much of a god thing.....
  • Help

    By Vampkiss
    I loaded the app and went into 'Space Travel' but can't get out. I slid the time marker all the way to 24:00 and tapped/slid every direction on the screen but I'm stuck. Not a very promising start. One star until I get a resolution.. Update: I found a way to escape 'Space Travel' besides shutting down my iPad which was the only way previously. Hidden behind the clock in the upper left corner of the screen is a set of icons I accidentally found that lets you get out. With that in mind and really really liking the tracking of space craft (ISS for example), I'm upping my rating to 5 ⭐️
  • Very confusing UI

    By Waltzing with cookies
    I like this app for basic viewing put the user interface is very confusing if you are doing something non-trivial. For example tracking the international space station is very difficult. First you have to search by text for the station and the search function does not remember old searches or favorites. Then the search function may or may not create a location arrow and if it does the arrow disappears with no rhyme or reason. Finally the search subject is not magnified or highlighted in any significant way so it is hard to locate on the screen.
  • Where the?!

    By KatAtomik
    This app is CRAZY inaccurate as far as where you are located in relation to where you are supposed to be looking vs where you actually are. I got this app because my 5yo is curious about the night sky and the constellations within it, he first asked what that first very bright star in the sky was(Venus) but this app claimed it was some other star& in order to find Virgo I literally had to turn us 180degrees from where Venus actually is. I’m uninstalling this app and definitely requesting a refund. I can’t remember if they charged me, but they should have to pay for all the confusion and subsequent disinterest this app has resulted in subjecting my toddler to. Maybe this is an alien app and it’s accurate on the planet the developers hail from, all I know is it’s not relevant to where WE are.
  • This app is amazing

    By chris the best mat the best
    This app has so many things to explore, discover, see and learn. One of the most amazing things are that you can see information and how you can see everything from different objects. It’s amazing! I just love it so much! And once again, It’s Amazing! Also thank you a lot for getting the idea of this app and making it. 😀 That’s why I knew I should have put 5 stars it’s just to good! Also special thanks to Javier for giving the inspiration of downloading it. And it was worth it. Thank you!🤩🤩🤩🤩

From Sequoia National Park to Sleeping Bear Dunes to our family cabin at Rough River in Kentucky, family, friends and all the little people in the family are fascinated and captivated by this unique app of the universe.
