  • Reliable and Spectacular

    I like this app for iOS 9 users because it works. I've tried others which are free and take up less space, but always come back to this one. It is so cool, with its filters, clear constellation diagrams and other features. Plus, it works!

  • Amazing app

    I like Skyguide a lot. I use it on my iPad Pro rather than a phone so I can get a good look at it. We were trying to track the ISS and the app lost its ability to find north, so it was completely lost. The last update seemed to fix the problem. I have left the app running in the background and found that it killed my battery quickly.
  • My favorite app!

    This is one of the most enjoyable apps I have on my phone and my iPad. I very much enjoy watching the International space station fly overhead, and watching the planets and seeing the constellations.
