  • Celestial Delight

    By manwininkler
    I got into all this indirectly ... I knew basic stars and constellations through celestial navigation. Over time I wanted to (a lot) more, but found few good guides. this app has become my personal guide and instructor ... am very happy to have it.
  • AR blurry AF

    Would be nicer if it wasn't blurry. I have screen caps to show it
  • One of my favorite apps

    This is great for nighttime stargazing. It’s great for identifying which stars you’re looking at and locating constellations.
  • So sick of this app

    By JellyBeano
    The developers must never use it themselves. You receive a Iridium flare notice for 5 min away. We go outside to watch, but theres NO TIMER. Like what the flying f man. The flares last a couple of SECONDS. Put a TIMER on the screen. Then, 9 times out of 10, especially on an iPhone X, you accidentally TOUCH ANY PART OF THE DISPLAY, and ALL the info about the flare is -GONE-. ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?! Oh it’s a pretty app. Just don’t bother with chasing Iridium Flares. Pathetic. Eat your own dog food for Pete’s sake. Add a timer. Keep the info on the screen until intentionally dismissed. Is that really so hard?

    Very helpful for identification.
  • Amazing app

    By Habaguanex
    Very attractive app. It’s entertaining and educational at the same time. A good choice for parents to introduce kids to astronomy.
  • Best Star App By Far!

    By Snapback46
    This is very worth the money! My favorite part is that just by pressing the compass at the top, you can move your phone around like you are actually looking at the night sky! This could be good for a VR! There is nothing to dislike about this app! I’m not just saying this just because I want to, I’m actually serious. It is super informational and notifies you of passing satellites and so much more! But it for the best experience you have ever had!
