  • Best tool out there!

    By FrozenZen
    Nothing to say but "OUTSTANDING". A must for any photographer planning their shots. Plan days, months, even years ahead and be confident of the result!
  • Best Photo Aid tool I've found

    By ebtide1
    From Milky Way to sunrise/set to star trails and more, if your photos involve celestial bodies there is no better app I've found.
  • using for about a year now

    By SCwolves
    Takes a bit to learn all the features this app offers, in fact so far I've used it only for milky way and moon rises. Each time I have to review the features to get it right. So best to do planning in advance. The "AR" live view can really help. Lots to learn. wish list: video tutorials to go FULL screen on an iPhone - right now they are tiny and don't expand?
  • Dozens of great shots planned with PhotoPills

    By Kinetic01
    The best planner I've used. Been a photopiller for over two Milky Way seasons and this tool has paid itself many times over. I use it for planning almost every shoot, doing the hard math for calculating exposures, star trails and more. The widgets make it easy to check today's light schedule and you can plan for locations across the globe months in advance. If you're serious about filming the night sky then you should be a photopiller too!
  • Great app--when can you make a macbook Pro version?

    By Mrigby788
    I've used the augmented reality for stuff on the fly, but am just now learning how to use the planning tools, which seem fantastic. I would love, however, to have a version on my MacBook Pro that would enable me to plan trips from home all that much faster and not have to strain my eyes for a couple of hours looking at the small screen.
  • Horrible UI and poor documentation

    By Khurt Williams
    The app seems quite capable. I had a bumpy time getting started with the app. But I had a Skype session with the PhotoPills team and I now understand how to use it successfuly. It's become an indispensible part of my photography toolkit.
  • The Best

    By Jimenez117
    Simply the best app for everything night sky
  • Great but....

    By K-ampers
    Not for the casual user. The interface is set for expert users. The app is accurate and has many features. However you will need training to use it.
  • Fanatstic App

    By Prith B
    If you are into astrophotography, this is a must have app. Finding the milky way is a cakewalk with this app. You can visualize and frame your shot to perfection with photopills. There are so many other features that are useful too. Example if you have a manual lens like the Rokinon 14mm f2.8 you can use the calculator to calculate the right shutter speed for the set aperture and ISO values. I don't regret a single bit for spending the money on this app. Good job developers. Also, all the educational videos are amazing!!
  • Fantastic!

    By JAdairphoto
    As a professional landscape photographer this app is essential. This takes a lot of the guess work out.
  • So polished and feature rich!

    Everything I need to plan and execute even complex shots is included in this single highly polished app! Well worth the money. Looking forward to future updates and continued support for the latest cameras (e.g. Fuji X100F).
  • Best app I've used!

    By Steven Dempsey
    This is my go-to app for every special photography project I do, be it needing to know hyperfocal distance, info on shooting star trails, timelapse, depth of field, crop sensor versus full sensor comparisons. The interface is friendly and intuitive. I give this app top marks and highly recommend it.
