Scumgrief77 - I would be hard pressed to find a similar App that does this.
Fun and educational. I love the fact that the planets show rotation. I'd love to see the developers consider updating in the future, the ability to tap into deeper space. Perhaps allowing us the chance to see the moons around planets, and any other space objects that are known in real time. One issue I find is the planets are askew/slightly off, causing me to adjust an approximate only to the L&R, which still doesn't give a true correction (or onion skin) It'd also be nice to have more educational factoids/info updated. This alone shouldn't deter you from getting this app, as its really the best one out there for those of us who love learning astronomy. I do love this app! I hope the programmers/developers consider our feedback & wishes. Every time Its clear outside regardless of the weather, I open this app and learn something new!
Four Years later and everything I asked for and more! Next Generation-I'd love to see a wayback option gps enabled where ever you are on the planet and the ability to go back in time to get the options to see the sky in the past (with known historical proven factual astronomical phenomena) that'd be a wonderful challenge for developers and experience for those of us who wish to see the
Sky as it was in roman times!
Chooseyty - I love this way too much!
I’m writing this review just because of how amazing this app is. I’m a kid who loves Astronomy, and takes it to long lengths. Just this Christmas, I got my first telescope! The Celestron 114 az Explorascope! I downloaded this app originally to see where my favorite star, Capella was located. Turns out, it had spot on location. I then got the full version, and have been using it on a weekly basis! This is an amazing app, and I look forward to using it for studying nebulas, planets, etc! I love this app mainly because I have been studying astronomy for about 5 years now, and have gone from knowing the basic 8 planets, to knowing the official names for several stars, galaxies, nebulae, and several other celestial bodies. This app is awesome for star gazing, planet watching, and exoplanet tracking! If you need a trustworthy, stable, easy to use app, download this for sure! My favorite part about this app is the mini lessons it gives you whenever you tap on a star, planet, nebula, star cluster, galaxy, you name it! I’m never downloading any other astronomy app! Thanks a bunch!! :)
testtrack king - Cool and informative, but could use a few things
I initially tried the SkyView Lite with my son after buying him a telescope a few weeks back. My initial thoughts of the app were great (still is) as you can point up, down, side-to-side and behind you and find what’s out there. This gets me dizzy and somewhat lost when trying relocate the object through the telescope.
A few nights back, we went to a viewing event and found another similar app (stellarium) which did not have (could be user settings) all of the constellation artwork pop ups and things getting in the way to try and find certain nebula and various other objects. His app simplified with a real-time view (potentially used a light pollution map) of what’s visible by the eye, to help find objects. He also did not have to point the app up, he held it at ground level and was able to match the stars visible currently to the eye, vs holding up the phone and getting lost within all the stars in the sky with your app.
Long story short I found some settings in this app to remove the pop up constellation artwork and reduce some of the stars, planets and satellites, however I’m not able to eliminate the point up to see option. Is there a setting for that in this app? I would like to hold the phone flat like I’m texting and see a real time view of what’s viewable with my eye, vs getting dizzy with the moving and spinning of the app.
HardToDoWithNNamesTaken - Not calibrated
Overall I like this app. It is easy to use. You look at the sky you put the circle on the star you want and it tells you what it is. The only thing bad at this point is two days ago the calibration doesn’t work. So when I came to Circle at the sky, the planet from my perspective is about a foot off to the left. I use the manual calibration tool, but when you use it you can’t see the name of the planet and you can’t make it stay on the planet. I do not see any way to get a hold a Overall I like this app. It is easy to use. You look at the sky you put the circle on the star you want and it tells you what it is.

Im searching for a clue on the Internet to fix it I find other people have had this problem also. If you can fix the calibration I would certainly give it a five star.
Woooooooooooooowwwww - Amazing App! One suggestion
I really fell in love with SkyView. It makes it so easy to learn about what I'm looking at in the night sky. There's one thing I think could make the app even better:
Currently the only way to look at a specific object in the sky through the app is to point and orient your device so it is facing that object, like the camera. But sometimes I would like to search around the sky without waving my phone in crazy directions, like if I'm lying in bed and want to pan over to what's under the horizon. I think it would be great to add a feature that lets you pan across the sky without needing to move your phone, so it is not oriented by the gyroscope. The view can stay at a constant zoom level, but being able to learn the stars without having to always point in that direction would be tremendously more convenient. This could be an option that you can switch on or off to keep the integrity of the original application as well. Please consider. Thanks for a wonderful contribution to the world!
Mista Julian - The Best Out There!
This is the best app I’ve ever used relating to looking up at the night sky! What a way to study the universe. To be able to look up, point and Wala all the knowledge you'd ever want relating to the SolarSystem, constellations, galaxies planets, nebulas, etc. just right at your fingertips. Get this, if you don’t know where it is that you’re looking for this app will even point you right to it, not only that it will show you the time it hits horizon, a outline of the path it’s following, where it is any time day or night, just unbelievable. People today have this knowledge right at their fingertips. In my day we had to go to a Library or open up a encyclopedia find a book, open the book, find the section and read about it, also the knowledge was limited. This modern knowledge to be right at your fingertips is just unbelievable.
Rushing spirit - Augmented reality
It seems that it is mandatory to see the app with augmented reality on. I try to shut it off go back to the app and it automatically turns itself back on. That’s annoying, I love the app and want to give it a five star rating but the settings won’t let me because it’s not just the augmented reality. there’s a couple of other settings that no matter how many times you shut them off they go back to being on. I paid for the app I downloaded the app you give us the options to have it on or off and yet we don’t get to utilize those options it seems forced upon us. And also can you bring the gyroscope back to align the app the way you have it now doesn’t always work easily. If it’s not broken then don’t fix it. I really do love the app I think it’s amazing but if you could do those two things; I would appreciate it. Then somebody else mentioned about searching the surroundings without moving the phone that’s a fabulous idea
conseler - Recommend it highly!
Use it often. Love it and already recommended it to many people. Great app. Would LOVE to see a few changes, enhancements, such as ability to better see MY VUEW, that is, sort of bring my perspective into focus and filter OUT the stuff I cannot see. This would help me learn MY SKY and I could then go deeper from there. Since I see nearly EVERYTHING through the App view, I often have difficulty pinpointing the name of EXACTLY which star, comet, satellite I am actually observing with my little eye. I want to know what THAT LIGHT I SEE is, so I can think on what I am looking at more fully. Sometimes I cannot be sure, since once the app screen comes on, we’ll, some further away lights become brighter than the one Zi am actually looking at without looking through the app viewer. WHEW!!!! Hard to explain. THANKS!!
FireStar 89 - Pay $1.99 but it was worth it!
So yesterday at night I wanted to find mars because that will be day until mars shows up again to its closest in 265 years which I’ll be dead by then. So I didn’t have a telescope so I remember that my teachers had this app and they said it’s really good to see planets and stars, so I bought it and I tried it out and we checked a star that was red with the SkyView app and... It was Mars!!!! That red little star in the sky was mars! We also saw other planets too like Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune but you can’t see it with the naked eye but the app detected it and right beside Neptune was the moon! Except the moon was closer. We didn’t see the moon because the trees were covering it. Thank you for this app! Others who see this must get this app! It’s worth it!
it even works in day time too!
.oliveira. - The best app I’ve ever purchased
This app is fantastic.
Everything about it is marvelous
I always used to appreciate the sky but this made my love for it grow tremendously.
I can now locate which planets are which and the bits and pieces of the constellations in the sky when before the app I would only erroneously guess. The app has two modes. One where you download it for free and the other where you pay something like 1.99. Both versions are fantastic. But if you are willing to put some money into this it’s even better. The sky is the TV of the universe (with God as it’s broadcaster) and it’s important that we pay attention to it.
Psalm 19:1 “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”
Rockets R Us - An Exciting, Interesting APP
I’m a retired aerospace engineer and have always looked at the night sky in wonderment. We never had a family camping trip without discussions of the night sky and the amazing beauty of it all. All of us could identify the Big Dipper, Mars and the moon, but everything else was guesswork until we discovered this App. I love sitting on the back deck an simply being able to locate all the planets or that bright star in the eastern sky or the many satellites and space junk that I helped put up there. I am so happy I found this App. Educational and a great way to impress your kids or grandkids with your new found knowledge. Easy to use. I look forward to many nights of enjoyment. Thank you!
Grahn Erik - Super
This app is awesome! It is by far my favorite. To be able to see so much, any time of day, is a fantastic experience. I used the light version for about 15 minutes, then knew I wanted to purchase full version. I have a 9 year old who loves to view space with a telescope. This app points him in the exact direction and time, for viewing many objects. Thanks for a great app.
Update: I have been using this app for over 6 years now and it's still used at least weekly. My then 9 year old son is now 15 and has it on his own phone. My other sons, now 9 and 10 also ask to use my phone at times, just to explore the skies, even while inside the house.
Lucrezia's Delight - Great app, but music no longer works
I purchased this several months ago, and I love it, but the music no longer works. I’ve verified both in the app and in my phone settings that music is on, plus I’ve rebooted my phone. Is this a bug? If so, please fix.
For people complaining the stars show when pointing the app at a floor or wall: you think the stars stop existing once they’re out of sight or below the horizon? The app is showing you the stars as if you were able to see through the planet, or just your wall. It’s not capturing the *actual* stars and labeling them. That would be a mighty powerful phone camera if it could do that. The app is a *map*, a star chart, to the skies. This is also why it needs calibration. Stop crying “Fake!”, and enjoy the app.
Cool Hand Husker Fan - Loose yourself in the wonder of the cosmos
I don’t know if I’m an amateur astronomer or what you would call it I am just fascinated with the wonders of the night sky. I heard about this app on a field trip with my daughters school and thought why not give it a try? Amazing and mind blowing are the first two words that come to mind. If you love to learn new things and have even a small interest in what goes on over our head as the world turns then definitely download this app(you will most certainly appreciate it ) and hold your phone up high to take a look at the night sky it is not falling it’s always there and anyone can see it from any where AMAZING
L Humpty - The Universe made easy....
This awesome app makes answering my kids questions easy and fun!! Love it.
We use it at home, on road trips, during special space events, and my fave.... camping!
My only issue, which is fairly easy to adjust, is the iPhone version has to be recalibrated every time we use it. Not hard to do, but kind of a bother when we want info on a 'star' or planet quickly.
Really cool that it can be filtered (or set to show multiple sets of data) to give us info on our satellites, space trash, and different missions from around the globe.
Definitely a laypersons go to app for all that is in our local universe.
nwruss1 - I love this app
This is probably my favorite app to use, and maybe the only one on my phone that elicits a ‘wow that’s cool’ response to everyone I show it to. Why anyone wouldn’t have this on their phone is beyond me. You just open it up, point it at the star/planet/object you’re looking at, and it identifies it for you. That’s it. Shows what’s below the horizon too, aka what may be visible in a few hours. I’ve had this app for years and it’s never crashed or failed to open. For my needs it’s perfect. I recommend this to literally everyone who’s blessed with vision and has even the slightest curiosity regarding what’s in the sky.
spankeys - You can't go wrong here
This app is one of the best I've ever downloaded. It's both educational, and soothing. The background planetarium-like music sets the vibe, and the knowledge the app hits you with is a slap in the face with good, solid, sky-based info. You'll quickly learn what rides across your horizon with this thing. It will give you a warm feeling as you learn the planets and the constellations that rule your sky at night. And it that isn't enough.... it tells you where the major satellites are! Be the envy of your friends as you rattle off where the hubble, or the space station resides as you rally 'round the campfire.
Bradymt - Probably my favorite app in the App Store
I have never ever gotten so much out of an app as I have with SkyView. Every single time I open the app, I learn something new. This app makes it INCREDIBLY easy to figure out what I'm seeing in the night sky. On top of that, it's accurate, fast, informative, and simple to use. No matter if you are a student, astronomer, or just someone interested in the cosmos, get the free version of the app and give it a try. If you love it as much as I do, buy the full app. I promise you won't be disappointed. $1.99 is a small price to ask for an app as impressive and complete as this one.
BeTheLove7 - Relaxing and Soothing Stargazing made easy!!!
I love love love the ambient music, it's gentle and quiet enough to enhance the gazing experience. Focus on the constellation or hone in on each star of each constellation and see their trajectory time line. Are used to stargaze as a child and even now as an adult I'm always looking at the sky. I'm staying at my parents house and decided to give this app a try. It's so crazy seeing all your familiar stars and finding out what constellation they belong to. Using SkyView it feels like enhancing my good childhood memories and opening them up to a whole other level to explore <3 .*•.*•*.
Johnnierr - Best Star Chart. Ever.
I've been an amateur astronomer for over 20 years now, and this is decidedly the best star chart I have ever used. The only thing I would even suggest to add, is a Planner function for each evening's night sky. In other words, an option to click an icon inside the app that shows you the top things to see tonight, maybe everything that is Magnitude 5 or brighter for the evening, to help you plan a night of observing and make sure you hit all the best sights for the evening. But this is definitely a great app, very intuitive and informative.
Giancarla - Compass will stop working with magnetics case
First off, I’m revising my review yesterday after I bought another sky app and it also was frozen in place and my iPhone compass was also frozen.
This app is very enjoyable and informative. Well worth the money I paid for it.
If you have freezing issues, meaning the app is stuck in one location, check your phone compass. If that is also frozen, check your phone case. If it has any component that is magnetic (mine did from the snapping back), try taking it off. It fixed the freezing issue. If it still freezes, then I’d write a review to inform others.
Kurtdm1 - Tracked the ISS (International space station)
Because of the app, I got to track the ISS (International space station) which flew right over my house. That’s thing if FAST!
I am 56 years old and have never seen anything like that before. I found it quite amazing and thrilling. All thanks to this wonderful app that was correct with times and placement.
I have used this on my iPad & iPhone. I originally downloaded it to figure out where the consultations were and it is great for finding those. My favorite of course is Orion.
I get to see all the constellations from the horoscopes and what time of year they will be visible.
This app will even show you all the space junk floating around in space and the names of them. I never knew there were so many Russian made and launched satellites up there floating around until I got this app.
It’s truly a wonderful app and I have and am currently thoroughly enjoying it.
dabmom69 - UPDATE AND/OR FIX THIS BROKEN APP
I initially was okay with spending a couple bucks on this app because i was excited to be able to scan around and see the stars real time wherever I was. It seemed to work just fine for a while, functioning just like it said but now the app doesn't scan anything- it just stays frozen in one place, not viewing any skies. I've tried adjusting, readjusting, waiting for updates and it's been "broken" for what seems like several months now.
At this point this app is a scam for a couple bucks as it doesn't function for any star gazing at all anymore. I really hope the developers can see and fix this issue because i'd love to be able to use this app again!
desertskies1 - Voyager 1 and 2 Spacecrafts
First of all I would like to say that this is my favorite app of all time. My friend and I have spent many nights far out in the Nevada desert exploring the universe, guided by SkyView. There are two objects though that I was wondering if you could add to SkyView; would it be possible to include the location of the Voyager spacecrafts? According to NASA, they are currently about 13,000,000+ miles out there, it would be fun to point the app out there and imagine those little spacecrafts cruising out into interstellar space. Thank you very much
Spartan Harv - Rare that I write a review...
...But a friend showed me and my fam this app, and it is such a source of wonder. I check it daily when I rise & see what beautiful celestial body is shining down from the heavens above. Really filled me with an even greater sense of respect for Creation & deeper desire to know God. A great blessing for my kids especially, who have now been insisting on a telescope and a visit to an observatory. Couple that with their new desire to take astronomy classes, & it is a accurate to say that this app is WORTH IT. Thank you to the developers for an excellent product.
Kbkeri - Learned so much more!!
I have collected countless books and have had a forever interest in astronomy. Having this app as long as I have, I’ve learned and retained the information I’ve looked at. The music that plays while star gazing is tranquil and beautiful. Even my sons have grown to love looking at the night sky when in the dark expanse of open land at night. My youngest was so excited when he found his favorite animal, not ever realizing there’s a constellation of the giraffe. I tell anyone who is looking for a great app to star gaze with.
SkyView App Review - SkyView
I've had this application for well over a year now, I find it very interesting to use and have shown it to my four-year-old granddaughter who is infatuated by it. I have even shown it to my former spouse since he does have a telescope, don't know if he's actually used it yet to find the constellations, planets and trajectory objects that show up in there also. I am simply amazed at how full our sky is of what we have put up there and left over. You should all take a look this is an amazing app!
jkhoch - Desperately needs to be updated..
While I used to love this app, and have an avid sky watcher to be, it hasn’t been updated in at least a year. There had been problems getting it to calibrate. I always had to do it manually, which is fine, but difficult when you don’t know which way you are facing and don’t have any obvious points to calibrate to. Now, it is just plain stuck. It doesn’t move at all, and all I can see is Draco at due north on the horizon, no matter where I am pointing. I have written the app help people and not heard back. It is disappointing. My daughter used to love this app, which was why I paid for the upgrade, but, unless they update it soon, I would not recommend this app for anyone. It will only frustrate you.
MrBelton - Cosmic Binoculars
An fantastic amazing app. Especially for young children. After learning about the planets, my daughter was dismayed that they weren’t lighting up the sky at night in real life. She felt better after I pointed out Mars, Jupiter & Saturn (or as she also knows them as Nergal, Marduk & Ninurta) with the naked eye. But this app brought it to another level. She understands the planets are far away and that this app is like a pair of cosmic binoculars.
Her only disappointment now is not being able to see the dwarf planets Ceres, Makemake, Haumea & Eris. Please add in future versions.
Princess Polymer - Crazy Fun
I have had more fun with this app than I can say, and I’m a mom with grown kids. Found out about this app while at the beach. Still enjoying it at home. Night vision filter is helpful. I’ve found Space Station, planets, stars and even space junk aka rocket bodies. Don’t care for sound track. Wish I could set my own. Highly recommend to everyone. My 20 year old wishes he had this as a help to get through his high school astronomy class. GET this app! You won’t be disappointed.
Frogmore Farm FL - Thought it a 5, but no, it is not
I’ve had SkyView for several years and thought it was great; would have rated it a five. But after all the news coverage of Comet Neowise I thought I’d try using the app to find it. Nope; search returns nothing. Brightest Northern Hemisphere comet since Hale-Bopp but the app doesn’t know of it? That was a letdown.
I was also frustrated to learn that the developer site - terminaleleven(dot)com - has no help functionality or really anything but a sales pitch. Clearly, once you get the app they’re done with you.
I give it 2 stars because it is really pretty good as long as nothing new comes along in the night sky, and as long as the user has no questions.
Sweetkheragirl - Best App in the Galaxy!
The best $1.99 i ever spent! I would have paid 5x’s that for this app! I downloaded it almost 2 years ago. It is, hands down, my most used app on my phone and iPad. I use it daily! I love it when camping, I love it on my deck, I love it from the educational aspects, the astrological aspect, when planets are in retrograde!! I really love it when i use it with with my nieces. It is fun for them to see the planet associated with the “star” they see (or might have wished on) . Creators did a supreme job making this app.
Trout-Bumm - Common Names Please
As for naming the constellations, I am accustomed to “Big Dipper,” and “Little Dipper.” The constellation overlay gets pretty confusing when I see the outline of a little bear where I am expecting to see dipper, which is presented in the sky. This is a five-star app for identifying celestial bodies, but the presentation overlays of the celestial icons gets confusing when trying to identify objects within my local night sky. I am a true amateur at identifying the celestial bodies. My primary objective is to identify a particular bright “star” and get the info about it, and this app is excellent at this.
Shield6 - Fun and inspirational
My family Has had this app for a number of years and it never gets old. We are always amazed by the ease in which we can explore and ponder the universe. While many are so predisposed to languish on their phone by doing email and Facebook, take a moment and use this app to see this magnificent universe the envelops and surrounds us. Amazingly our ancestors know much more about the universe then us because they took time to challenge their brains and imagine the wonders of the world.
787JJS - I love SkyView
This is one of my favorite apps for camping, boating, etc. every time I get it out I’m amazed by the well done interface and the massive database of info. My only request would be to add the ability to tell the app where I am with a Latitude and Longitude rather than just by the nearest city. I am often using it at very remote locations and I can’t always get it oriented just right since I can’t give it precise enough location info. Otherwise it’s phenomenal. Keep updating!
JrredmdbyChrist - Awesome app!
I really LOVE this app! My only complaint, I guess it would be a complaint, is that i don’t have an option anywhere to record and not just take a still photo. It would be SUPER AMAZING if I could take a small clip of Venus actually rotating in space! And record the rocket body pieces that are floating in space! It’s truly amazing to see it, I would LOVE to record it/ video it. Other than that, I think it’s a truly inspiring app for any lover of the stars! I am so thankful to be able to view one of the many awe and wonders of God through this app. Thank you!
Gorgar6 - Great App. Worth learning. Some wishes?
Been using this app for years. I like waiting and watching for satellite sightings. I see now there is a widget of the sightings available. But the widget only shows the top of the list of sightings! Can there be a filter, sort option, or favorites option for sightings? To be able to at least select what sightings to see in the widget? Thanks for the app. I recommend this app. It’s not real friendly, but once you learn it, it’s awesome. It’s not a game.
Boreas Ursa - Cool app!
I’ve recently really gotten into stargazing and this app is really cool! The only reason I did four stars is because although there is an augmented reality setting, I really wish there was a setting where half of my screen is the app’s sky info and the other half is my phone’s actual camera - this way I can actually pinpoint exactly which star or planet I’m seeing out at night!! I also wish there was a tracker on what phase the moon is in, and when it will next be full or new. Other than that, this is a really neat app!
Superlative girl - Not supported
Well, it looks like they aren’t supporting this app anymore. I used to have the SkyView lite and enjoyed it enough that when I opened it to use it and the screen wouldn’t move I figured I’d spring for the paid version thinking they weren’t supporting the free one anymore. Silly me, it looks like they aren’t supporting any of them because the screen still wouldn’t move after installing the paid version. After some digging I found their website and the last blog entry was a few years ago during the big solar eclipse so it looks like the developers have given up on this one. Don’t waste your money. Which is too bad because it was a great app when it still worked.
stumble🪐 - I Literally Wanted an iPhone so I Could Use this App
This is a really smooth running app, especially on the newest iOS update. I like to use this for astrological as well as educational purposes. The night mode is perfect for Star gazing, it allows you to identify exactly which star you’re looking at without blinding you with blue light and making it hard to see the stars. This app is a really good resource and it’s beautifully made. 5/5 all around 🙌🌏🪐💫⭐️✨
Gunslenger1959 - Love it!!!
I have over the years had the free Version of this app and love it never had a Single problem with it. It’s always work really well. So with all the telescopes that I own I bought this and have never ever regretted it I’ve tried others but this one here seems to be the best one out that’s why I gave it five stars would love to been able to give it six. I’ve had it on a lot of phones over the years both iPhones and androids alike.
Interactionmc - One of my favorite Apps!
Shared this on Facebook with my friends:
Sat on the dock last night with my dad, waiting to see if we could see the international space station pass directly over our heads. Even though we could not, it was one of the best moments of my life. Just like sitting with him.
Oh, and if you don't have the app, SkyView, you should download it. You can find any planet, heavenly body, star system, or human launched item up there. If you search for something, it will show an arrow until you are pointing your phone directly at it. So even though we couldn't see ISS with the naked eye, we could follow it with our phones.
And just now realized, there's at least one app that two people can use to share an experience without ignoring each other!
Flyngsnow - Perfect to use along side a telescope
I've been using this app to accompany my night sky viewing with a telescope. It has been very helpful in letting me identify stars and constellations that I have been unfamiliar with. The paid version is definitely worth while. Not only will it show you all the celestial objects above the horizon, like Messier objects, but it will also show you where a bunch of man made space junk is floating above your head.
Kyoto xB - Access to the cosmos has never been so...Universal!
If you're looking for an amazing app that does a fantastic job at directing you across the celestial sphere, SkyView is your final destination. This app is easy to use, accurate, and includes tons of great information regarding the celestial bodies you are searching for! I could not recommend a better app, and I definitely suggest the full version if you're a hunter of more distant bodies such as Uranus and Neptune.
AJ3168 - Absolutely Amazing💥✨🌔
This is simply one incredible app! I travel all over and use it everywhere. The information on so many objects can keep me occupied for hours. This app identifies everything from old rocket bodies to satellites to every star you can see. It has worked flawlessly from the day I installed it and would highly recommend this app to anyone with any curiousity at all about the night sky👍👍
YanceMaster - Potentially a great app
The reason I have rated this app only one star is simply because the location guiding services is far from being accurate. For example, if you are trying to locate the ISS or Tiangong 1, the app is not accurate, it can be off as much as 90 degrees. I am not sure why this is the case as it uses the same location system in each iOS device, resulting in troublesome identification if you are not a seasoned or experienced astronomer. I like the app, but there is another app that provides real time accurate location of any object your may wish to observe. If you know how to locate the object in mind, I would rate the app much higher.
Love2ClearClouds - Moon Phases Not True Astrological Positions
I have been studying astronomy most of my life and astrology the past 12 years. I am also a student of esoteric knowledge.
I have discovered the Farmers Almanac and original astrology sources have the moon phases accurate, while this app has the moon positions 2 days earlier in each sun sign.
If you are an esoteric student, you know the importance of abstaining from sex during the 2.5 days the moon is in your sun sign...”christ” in the “tomb” 2.5 days.
Being that this app appears to be affiliated with NASA, and that NASA was started with nazi Germany scientists who infiltrated America in Operation Paperclip, I seriously question WHY this app is incorrect in the moon positions.
Being that the nazis’ only true concern is world domination and destruction of all truth, I can only surmise that the intentions in this app are either of ignorance, not knowing NASA’s true intent, or just another means of keeping people in the dark.

It’s 4am and I can’t sleep, so I decided to go out on the front porch/yard and do some star gazing. OMG...while using this app (that was recommended, thank you) and actually looking at the stars, I was able to see very clearly and pinpoint our entire solar system (minus 2 planets) in this mass universe. Simply in AWE of the unknown universe and I just know in my gut ...we cannot be the alone, it’s just not possible....#idobelieve in ALIENS, I do believe in ALIENS...I do I do...👽🪐🌎🚀🛸
Fort Mudge - Absolutely five star
I’ve been into amateur astronomy since I was a kid and never dared even imagine something so cool as Skyview on an iPhone. It tracks everything and is especially useful with satellite visibility. I don’t know how they got a hemispherical sky on a flat jPhone display but they have. And the free version if you want to check it out is great, although the extra couple of bucks to upgrade is money well spent. It’s great
Jennacelinni - An essential app!!!
What a fantastic find! Another sky/star guide app was often much more advertised and recommended. And as I searched to download it, I noticed this one and looked it over. I immediately knew this was the one for me. I purchased the bundle, so freaking happy I did!! I AM SO ADDICTED TO THIS APP AND I CAN NOT STOP TELLING PEOPLE THEY’D BE CRAZY NOT TO DOWNLOAD IT. If you can spend 9.99 on music, you can spend 2.99 for this amazing sky guide & if you're like me 4.99 for the bundle, that's a #BARGIN!

Jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj22 - Very Good
I’ve been using this app for years now and it works like a charm every time. Sometimes it’s a little bit off where the stars are but it’s close enough to get the idea. I would love to see even more things be added to the app as I feel we never get any new content!
Vyas Chady - IPad Pro 12.9 Not Good.
The app is fantastic, but I don't think it was made for IPads, not sure about iPhones because I don't have an iPhone. But, I have the same app on my Nexus 6P, the milky way in the background is just very condensed and clear, very high refresh frames rate it is like hot knife on butter smooth. The black background is pure deep black, it's just beautiful. The augmented side on the Nexus 6P which to me is an old device is high quality.
But on the IPad it's all pixelated, the frame rate when you move the device around is very low and you can actually see how washed out the whole background is, black is not back.
Can someone have a look please how it compares and hopefully we see version for the iPad thanks.
Charger 770 - There’s a problem with the SkyView😐
“Hello” I’m having a problem with SkyView today, every time I click on the same star then I click on Wikipedia starts to freeze and closes itself it’s so strange, I don’t know why is it closing itself when I click on the same star is just so strange, but I don’t know why but it hasn’t be closing itself before when I just brought the SkyView but it’s so strange🤔?
Can you please fix SkyView from freezing and closing so I don’t have so I do not get annoyed with SkyView because otherwise I will delete it and by the way please fix it😊?
jerrytheinfinity - Novel but still can be improved
Generally speaking it’s a great app, but please let the app tell me how far the star I’m watching at is from me. Only knowing the name and location of the star isn’t very intuitive. But knowing the distance between me and the star (and each star on the sky) would give me a much more intuitive of their position. Also, knowing the distance also allows me to know how many years the light traveled to from there to my eye, isn’t it much more romantic! Please add this feature plz!!!
Sallyh1 - Used to be great
I used to love this app, but recently it seems to be more “out” with its calibration, and a week ago it started to “roll” out of control through the sky, even though I’m holding my device completely still. It’s like watching the stars and horizon line on the app just tumble faster and faster in a downward motion.
I can’t find anything in the help section to suggest how to fix this, I’ve tried the figure 8, I’ve tried resetting the location, I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, but I have no idea what’s going on. All other apps on my phone which use location services (including google maps) are working fine...
ThisFox - Not so good in the southern hemisphere
I have no idea about the Northern hemisphere, but to call the Southern Cross "crux, one of 88 modern constellations", leaving out so much, seems less than informative. No Big Kangaroo, no Emu, both of which are popularised and real aboriginal constellations, also seems a bit northern-hemisphere-centric, if not blatantly racist. Someone might want to do some southern hemisphere night sky research. The space debris stuff is good though, nice to get an idea of what is man-made up there.
DanielAUS - Best application I’ve ever bought
This app is absolutely fantastic. A huge thank you to the developers. It is precise and extremely easy to explore the night sky. It’s so fascinating to see what the stars are called, where the star signs are, identifying planets and even seeing the suns trajectory for the day. Five stars to the developers!
Peter pooch - If you’re interested in the stars and what’s really out of this world try this
This is a very easy app to use quite straightforward I use this app nearly every day
And don’t forget to use a tripod if you are using it with a phone it’s much easier
It’s worth its money
Truly out of this world
louis V11 - Definitely worth the price
Even though the free version is okay anyway, the paid version for only $8 is amazing!
Works great on an iPad and is great for people like me who are only just starting out in astronomy.
It looks like a lot of work from the developers has gone in here!
Jackmon3 - VERY unexpected
I was doubtful, but this app really surprised me with how well this app worked! I bought it and went straight outside to see if it was accurate and really was! This app will be my go to guide when looking for objects to find through my telescope.
Emotikat - Great app
It’s a really good app. It’s very easy to use, but only recently I’ve noticed that the calibration is very off. When I try to set it up manually, it gets completely out of whack whenever I go back into the app. I’m not sure if there is a way to save it or not. That is my only issue. Besides that, it’s wonderful.
Beefcake... - My all time favourite App!
I have had this app for many years now and still to this day it is my absolute favourite app of all time! (I am a bit of a space nerd...) I have learned SO much from this app, without it I’d feel lost in the universe! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Benjo Swobs - Great UI, no comets though?
Great for finding constellations and satellites etc, really easy to use and beautiful interface. Search functionality is also great.
My only gripe would be - there doesn’t seem to be a way to find comets like eg Neowise... any plans to include transitory objects like comets etc via a feed or something?
Smeagle08 - Great app, everyone I show it to loves it!
It’s great and it’s amazing when your sitting on a lookout up at the sky and you can use it to view everything that you can see in more detail.
Have had issues with calibration but hopefully the next update will work it out
WeVGroovin - Great for getting kids interested in space
Got the kids looking into the night sky, picked a satellite on the app then watched it fly over, kids though that was cool.
Helps locate planets, constellations and the ISS.
Ultron_Ultimate - Awesome
This app is legit. Found a few planets through this, looked through my telescope, and they were there. Awesome buy, especially if you’ve got a telescope.
Circle of 3 - Sadly lacking basic search function
Easy to point and identify a star or object.
Can’t accept address to search for a known address for a star or point in space. Google maps will eat this ap when they include off planet locations.
dinkumdave1 - But disappointed
Have used this app many times over the last few years and have been very pleased with it. But I loaded it on my iPhone 7 and now the planets are not in the right places. It’s not very useful if everything is off.
Perhaps there’s away I can recalibrate it.
Tiablue - Awesome App
Great app, better than all of the paid apps. I’ve been using it for years and use it nearly every night.
Jetstream41 - Best astronomy app!
Well worth upgrading to the paid version of this app. So many more brilliant features and preference settings. I use it purely for tracking satellites and find it much better than the Satellites app.
Love it! 🛸🚀🔭
Zfuhrer - Had it for six months, it's really good!
I've been using this for the last six months, I'd be lost without it. 5 stars from me!
GuyWilly - GuyWilly
Excellent app, I got the app with my first real telescope, it is almost a must for beginners. A basic moon map would be great, name the main craters etc. overall very good thank you.
Anonymouslylyly - Best purchase ever
This app is absolutely the best app I've even downloaded/bought. It is so much fun and so educational. I would recommend this to anyone!!
CharlotteGP - Amazing!
This app is amazing! It reminds me of Virtual Reality because you can see the whole sky even when you are sitting in your bedroom!
Skyy~ - Brilliant!
Great app! Works perfectly~ would love to be able to get notifications for more stars, but otherwise, very good 👍🏻
essendonfan6 - Sky view
This app is amazing because it shows different constilations and planet, space junk, and even satellites
My iPod is blue - Amazing
Very useful for finding all of those hard to find planets and stars, highly recommended😀
Bob230985 - SkyView
Great App - for a star gazing novice this App is brilliant and for someone who is more advanced, there is something for you as well. Excellent for learning about the stars and astronomy.
Jasgames - slight problem
I loved this app and used it all the time, but recently it has stopped working. I cannot enter the app as every time I go to open it, it crashes. It’s a bit disappointing and I would love to continue to use it but it won’t work :(
fastrack73 - Awesome...all-in-one best app
This is an app of few that the children can use day or night and learn something of value....Regards 👍👍👍
Sjusan - The best app
I really enjoy discovering sky. Extremely interesting and detailed map. Thank you, developers
FDesign44 - Very cool
I wouldn't advise it - but it would be interesting to light up a mild organically grown hooter and use this app on a clear night.
86753096060842 - IPhone 7plus
I find this great on the iPhone, with none of the problems mentioned by the IPad user. Love how you don’t even have to go outside to use it.
timr49 - SkyView Lite more accurate than SkyView
I have both of the above apps installed on my iPhone.
This evening I could clearly see Orion’s belt where SkyView Lite said it should be but SkyView said Orion was below the horizon. I could clearly see the Southern Cross (Cruz) but SkyView showed it rotated relative to the real thing and in a different location.
Both apps have access to location.
So, I am using the free app because the one I paid for is just wrong!
Aussie Speed Runner - A Universe of Stars from Me.
I like to say a BIG deal "THANK YOU" to the team for making this wonderful Space App.
It has helped me to keep my mind going from my Chronic Depression.
There is nothing more wonderful than to tour the Cosmos from ones own Living Room.
A hand held Planetarium.
So. Thank you.
Annoued Family - Don’t waste your money.
I got this app because I saw heaps of good reviews, but I pointed it at the ground and it said there were stars on the ground. I thought something was wrong so I pointed it at the wall with lights on in the room and it said there was stars on the wall. Don’t waste your time and money on this app.
Frankie and kerry - Every one I show is hooked
The most mind blowing app u can get
Nitram Ztilad - Sensational !!
This app is the best. My favourite. Hardly a day goes by when I don’t use it. :))))
Angophora18 - Great program
Used all the time
Nicolette Chalhoub - Extraordinary
This is without a doubt, the most extraordinary app I have ever downloaded. It's freakin' awesome.
Andre duP - Fantastic app
I have an IPHONE 6S+
app works well an is fairly accurate. Andre
Lizkurn - So far so good
Well done. I look forward to use I get this program .
tmprsns - Out of date
Would give 5 stars as usability is excellent, but it does not include any of the latest starlink trains... and I even bought the satellite bundle to see if they were there.
Come on guys, keep it current.
Tufftinnie2 - Amazing
Best app yet for stargazing, satellite spotting, and seeing just how much space junk there is out there.
Legion_13 - I love it
It's a amazing app that peaks my interest on space and the universe
Night_hub174 - Best app of 2018!!!
I am a Space nerd so having this app really helped me in Uni!!
gaucij - Due for an update
iPhone X Support would be fantastic to leverage the whole screen. Thanks
Pacificnwse - A sometimes app
Seems to work sometimes (and is great), but screen is inexplicably frozen other times. Not up there with the better star gazing apps.
kouranga - wistful
I had the early version of Sky watch and just loved it, simple to use. This updated one is too complex.
LoungeDancer - Bug
I move my phone around. Screen is still stationary. I’ve deleted app and downloaded again. Same with purchased app
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Flyer62 - Delighted!
I've only just started my exploration of the cosmos, and what a great tool to see what's out there. Love it! Great to share with the kids too!
Tommy too long - My favourite
Wish they updated with star link
SpaceBee9 - updated version
I love Sky View. I just updated to the premium and it is well worth the upgrade. My only comment is that I wish I could hide the space junk (spent rocket launchers) but still get to see the the satallites that I love to track (hubble and others) . I find the proliferation of rocket launchers turning on their axix distracting and it takes away from the beauty and serene starry sky of the original free version. I ended up putting the free version back on my phone yesterday so I could have a choice, The additional music tho is nice. and lots of other choices in the upgrade that I do like. please tho make a toggle switch for the rocket launchers alone. but leave the science and other satellites to view. I see that Japan has recently sent up a space debris garbage truck! (Dec 16) to collect some of these spent rocket launchers. Thanks for a great app tho
Netschnauzer - The first one I will go to.
I am using several apps to view the sky, but SkyView is always the first one I will go to.
I love my SkyView,
SkyView is simple to use and always shows me all the star information I am looking for.
Stephgraphic - Good app but not well calibrated
It's a beautiful app with a lot of details. But I am rating 3 because it is not calibrated correctly. It does not aim the moon where it really is for instance. Even after I manually calibrate it, it goes back to a random settings. Also it is hard to see the stars or planets behind the drawings of a constellation. Too bad because this app has a great potential.
Stephweat - Beautiful and Easy
I’ve had this app for years and have learned a lot from it. I absolutely love this app.
I gave it 4 stars because I had it stuck on North for a long time. Eventually I discovered that my magnetic phone case was causing the issue. Wish there was better customer service as I did try to reach out to the company and search their site for why.
Other than that, it’s been the best one I’ve been able to find!
dycrcegedhh - Seems frozen?
Nothing moves on the “sky” no matter where I move my phone,it stays on North and the same constellation. Any suggestions would be helpful
daskalla - Love it!
So educational and entertaining!
Villa944 - Fantastic!
It’s thrilling to use this app - very accurate!
T. V. H. - Compass ?
Compass shows North as South , fix direction and it eventually goes back to North showing as South ? How can this be fixed ?
Bodacious80 - Semi Accurate
Very cool app but unfortunately it’s not completely accurate. When I calibrate the alignment of the sun the moon is off. Or vice verse. Same with a lot of the bright stars in the sky. Everything you look at is only in the general area. It’s not exact at all.
getalifewiththenicknames - I like it.
For the most part this is a very good app, I would suggest making the small payment and getting the full version though as it does have a lot more constellations available. It would be nice though if it pointed out things like comets as well.
hardcoregamer 678 - Love it
This app helped me a lot to find planets, stars and much more. But the one thing I wish is that you could find voyager 1 and 2. Also if you want the ultimate combo get ISS detector because sometimes the app doesn’t tell you about it. Over all I love this app
jacquieeeez - Knowledgeable App
Every time I use this and show it to a friend they are amazed at how well it works!!
There’s just so much out there to discover.
S17! - Amazing Star Gazing
This app is incredible. If you're remotely interested in the night sky this app is a must. Beautifully presented. I could spend hours exploring. Thanks!
Ken.9 - Enjoyable & Fun!
It’s great for everyone. Like how many people know that the International space is actually moving faster than a bullet, yet you can see it sometimes moving across the sky. That’s pretty cool.
123 zax - SkyView
Dkerins - Love it
Great app. Fun to pull out at night!
North8 - iPhone Alignment Getting Worse
When I got the free version it was really easy to line up the screen to the stars in the sky. It seems that with each update the alignment gets worse. It’s really unreliable now.
Osoyoos John - Difficult for an Amateur
Too difficult for a person who wants to view the "normal " viewings e.g. The Southern Star, etc.
You should have a programme easier for a lay person to use!
3Horsefeathers - Love the night sky
I’ve had this app for many years, still enjoy looking searching the night sky.
Carolyn1961 - Amazing
Love this app. Makes it easy to find the planets when I am using my telescope.
Raptorman40 - Excellent sky app!
A very excellent tool for anybody from amateur to less amateur to explore our wonderful skies. Easy to use and very user-friendly set-up. Highly recommended.
Don't Never Kaput - See the ⭐️ stars
My first App I ever downloaded; 4iPhones later and it’s still with me. If you love astronomy, this is the one.
LoriSzy - Fantastic
I love this app. It feeds my constant curiosity about what’s out there. Combined with a decent telescope, this app helps with finding certain celestial bodies for viewing as well.
darlingsislandfarmer - Fantastic
Amazing app. Transformed how I’ve raised my children to seek science and space.
jamespigford - SkyView
This app sucks. Can I get my money back? It doesn’t work. Stuck on the same image.
Radar less - Bait and switch
I purchased this app early in in its development. One day I went to open it to look at a satellite, which was included along with stars and constellations, and found that the satellites were now on another app.
It makes me wonder when they will devalue it again to get me to pay more.
Gtdxehjiiiii - It’s a no
This doesn’t work.
And I paid for it
It’s a no
Jimmy's Take away - So good
Tim dryden - Due for an update
I'd like to see more sat’s added to the list and less space junk. Have a ton of sat’s going overhead that aren't listed (ones i can see with the naked eye). Love the app. Just wanting more :)
lordofmordor - Enjoy this App
I use this app all the time when traveling or on vacation. Well worth it had this now since my iPhone 4
puppyloveunicorngirl - 😏
I was at a restaurant and pointed this at my fork and why do I see Mars on my spoon?!
Bluelightning555 - One thing...
Over all the app is very fun to mess around with and play with but I have to re calibrate a lot because the app can forget where the iPad is or forget the direction of where the iPad is being pointed at.
If this bug gets fixed I would rate 5 stars
jbztoy - Incredible!
I love this app! Highly recommend it. 5 stars.
cubanpoppa - Fantastic
I love this app. It is great.
Volkstech - Love the App
So entertaining and educational. Great app for anyone who enjoys astronomy and want increase their knowledge on the universe.
TorontoJoe - Horrible App
I’m on holiday in Grenada and curious about the stars in the sky. This APP is terrible. It has no options to turn off features. Trying to understand what star I’m looking st but can’t find it because of all the silly graphics. DO NOT BUY THIS. WASTE OF MONEY
Working Again - Great app
This is a great app. I use it all the time.
Foxfire sorcery - I love this app
CanadianRocky - Great fun
It’s a great app for exploring the stars. It would be nice to be able to toggle on and off The actual size of the Andromeda galaxy, not just the visual part, so we could compare it to the rest of the objects.
Player payer - Skyview in accurate
Plus no new updates in 2 yrs - if you dont support your apps people take them off the board. Lame ducks
Mulugeta, Canada - Amazing and addictive!
Its an amazing and addictive app!
I cant stop watching our beautiful planets and their alignments.
Boss 187 killer - Didn’t help
Downloaded the full app to help with the super blood wolf moon eclipse Jan 20 2019 and the app made no mention that it was even going on. Not helpful at all with current space happenings and cool stuff to see. If it doesn’t know when the neat stuff to watch is happening what’s the point.
LeannaNadine - So Worth It!!
I initially had the free version and just had to upgrade (which I never do that). It’s easy to lose track of time using this app. Loves it!
Robquill - SkyView review 2019
This is such a useful tool. To bring terminology to light and the explanations gives one a part of the universe to understand and explore. To have ‘this technology at one’s fingertips makes it even more relevant and useful.
CowTipper2012 - Fun
Best app on my phone to pull out at a party !
Mrkcsa - Amazing
Best app for every age
acjc71 - One of the best
Really great and useful. Kids love it.
Need to add in searches for iridium flares.

daris29 - Fun and smart!
The only problem I have is that I stay up too late to catch the rising stars and planets and my neighbors might think I’m a little off looking at the sky with my phone. I love this app and find it seriously addicting but in the best way. I highly recommend this app for anyone who likes to watch the sky and isn’t sure what they are seeing. Great fun for novices like myself. Look and learn!
3 Father - Must have for any star gazer
Great fun and great features. Was in Key West recently, wanted to see the Southern Cross. You just simply search for the constellation, push on it on your phone, and then you’ll be able to see the arc it tracks on the sky, and what time it will be above the horizon. It told me that at 6:00am it would be visible and sure enough- I woke up early one morning and was able to see it!
Zhadow Knight - Best App for Stargazers!
It's definitely worth it to upgrade to the full version. It's only $1.99 and you get access to satellites, more constellations, all of the music, and a nice widget feature that alerts you of future possible sightings. If you don't want to pay, the free version still works amazingly. Both are very informing and extremely fun to use for even beginner space lovers!
Power-user-Tom - No Comet Neowise
The app is lovely. I went out and bought the satellite/spacejunk companion app, too (should have just gotten the bundle to begin with). Sadly, it seems there’s no support for current events... such as the approach of comet Neowise that is going on right now (23-Jul-2020). That seems such an obvious thing to have available (just think of the publicity the app would get) but, no. Maybe the devs will change their minds by the time the next big thing happens in the sky.
usmc6711 - More than I want to see!
I rated the app lower than I actually enjoy it as a plea to separate the constellations from all the space junk out there! The basic format to enthrall the viewer with the beauty above us, I feel is denigrated by man’s pollution of a pristine environment like Mt. Everest for the sake of achievement! I’d like see the stars and the stuff separated into two apps, or add ons. I’d pay for the ones I want for the experience, or information, I want. It is a great app —- make it better! Please!
PapaGato - Heaven knows
What great way to see the heavens all mapped out what He has done. The placements of the stars and the planets, who ever knew that these are arranged in a way that we can all admire. For the developer who designed it, that we can all use to look up and see where all are, thanks for making it possible for us. Absolutely no problem using the technology we can all share.
Markiecmarkiedo - Beautiful!
This app makes stargazing so easy. You can isolate celestial bodies of all sorts: satellites, planets, even the International space station. You can set up alerts so you don't miss special events like comets or meteor showers. It even links to the camera so you can take pictures of, say, a dramatic sunset with the constellations drawn over it. Easy to understand and infinitely fascinating, I highly recommend.
CW1DANCER - I love this app!
I couldn't sleep, so I was outside - sitting at the base of El Cerro (volcano) in Los Lunas, NM, at 3:30am on a warm summer night in June, 2017. I was facing east and was searching around for different planets in the app. And Wow! The moon is just now coming up on the eastern horizon. It's only a sliver, but on the horizon, it looks huge. I was amazed, because I thought it had already risen and set by this time. The app helped me find Uranus and Venus, near the moon. This is so cool for amateurs!!
The Fat Angel - Just Plain Fun!
I love this app & if you enjoy staring at the sky at night, you will too. There’s nothing like sitting by the campfire stargazing. Beyond Orion’s Belt & the Big Dipper, there was little I could ID. SV ID’s constellations I didn’t know existed, shows the locations of all the planets & their moons, stars of distant galaxies, satellites & even jettisoned rocket engines tumbling around Earth’s orbit. I started w/ the free version but upgraded & am glad I did.
Sempil - Haven’t used in far too long, now
I opened it and was greeted by the request to tell the app where I am. I chose to let the app find out. When that didn’t work, I verified it is setup correctly (while using). Still will not locate me. I manually entered location. Works. Never had t do that before. Three stars is much too low for this app, But if it can’t find our location automatically, I have to wonder about the accuracy of the stars, etc, I am viewing!
CaptZaldivar - Awesome app!
Allows the user to "see" stars, constellations, satellites, planets, space debris and space stations. Select your location to identify objects and constellations real time or manually select another location to see other parts of the world. 5 stars for ease of use, high quality, and price! Not a paid review, just a homeschooling family that is enjoying this app.
MongolianX - Finger scroll
Can you allow finger scrolling and disable the gps tilt controls. When you are tucking your kids into bed it’s hard to show the solar system when I have to move the device in different angles only allowing a small portion to be seen as I don’t want the kids letting out of bed to look behind or below.
Pixiem3 - Best Astronomy App
I’ve used this app for years now and I’ll never stop using it. It is definitely the best star gazing app I’ve seen. I love that it gives facts about every object in the solar system. It is also cool that it can show where objects will be at what time and date. It is always on point with the sky and the objects line up perfectly. I love it, five stars!
962663 - Fun
I like the app. Would like to be able to type in search bar using English, not Greek alphabet prefixes. This necessitates installation of a Greek Keyboard.
A little difficult to click on the intended object at times, particularly on an iPad 2. It’s a bit easier on iPhone 7+ but I like the screen size better on the iPad due to my poor eyesight.
This is not a negative review as I enjoy the app. Rather just some suggestions to make it simpler to use.
2Womyn - I feel like this app is from 2090!
Most impressive app I’ve seen yet. To be able to see where every planet in our Milky Way amongst the billions of stars out there , almost unbelievable. I see the Hubble telescope, Jupiter, Saturn, International space station...everything, including space “junk” that’s left out there floating around. You gotta see this!
thubbster - What’s going on?
I would have rated it 5 stars but something’s gone wrong. Used the app for the first time in a couple of weeks and found it frozen with a North view of the sky no matter which way I faced, calibrated compass automatically or manually. Deleted SkyView Lite and paid for regular SkyView and still had the same issue. Would really love to have this working right again.
kjk!! - I would be happier with
I love the application I've downloaded it on every phone over the years starting with iPhone 3 I now have an X.
I would really only like to add one more option... That is the ability to pinch to zoom at least to enlarge the objects if not to explore back in time to distant known stars that have since perished.
Hdjsususdu - Great app!
It's a fantastic app but they got rid of the ability to fast forward at different speeds while viewing the universe. It was fun to do and show people retrograde motion. It was also nice to be able to see where planets and stars would be in subsequent days without having to enter the menu to change the date
DigitalGirlie - Spark Your Imagination 🌚🌙🌞
An outstanding app showing you constellations, planets, satellites, telescopes and just about everything that’s in our skies. This app has so many great, easy to use, fun features, I just can’t get enough of it even as a novice user. My mind fires away when I scan the heavens to learn more about our observable universe. Worth! Every! Penny!
YourABuckshoa - Great! Just one issue
Finding planets in our solar system with the app is easy and cool. Except when I try to find a specific Star like Betelgeuse and it’s surrounded by multiple stars and you aim your phone in the sky to try to find which one it is is really hard. I don’t know if there is a way to make it easier but overall really cool app. Some ideas would be adding exoplanets.
Stupid app 12684 - Amazing App- please add Nebula photos!
This app is unbelievable. I just went camping and it never left my side stargazing at night. Full of an amazing amount of information and incredibly easy to use.
My only critique- and it's a small one- I would love images of each of the nebulas on the app rather than a generic "Typical Nebula" image! Or at least the big ones like Horsehead, Eagle, Cat's Eye, etc. That would make the app perfect.
animosus_liberatio - I cannot stop playing with this app!
I love it! The music is awesome and I really am completely floored that I can look at the stars click on one on the screen and it will pop up information. What a handy tool. It makes exploring the universe so much more fun! So many things that I didn't even know I learned though this app!
Ane1There - Must get for gazers
The free version is great, but if you really want to watch for satellites the paid version is THE way to go. So much is floating around out there; satellites, rocket bodies--lots and lots of them, and space stations. The galaxies are easy to find, too. The lesser known constellations are also outlined. Highly recommend to even the most amateur star gazer!
Retired But not Dangerous - Great for novices
This app is so easy to use even when it is cloudy you can see where stars, planets, etc. are located. And I love seeing all of the satellites and am disappointed at how many pieces-parts are floating around out there. My brother got me interested in this app. It's very helpful to those of us who don't have constellations memorized.
okayme2 - Use it on a swivel chair and you’ll lose your mind!
I love this app... I could do this all day and night. And maybe there isn’t a better way to make use of your time—since you never know when the grid will crash and navigating by the stars will be a life saver! Get this and get to know the “dome of heaven”!
Ruthann2222 - App is not updated to match actual position
This app needs updating, and I don't mean the app mechanics, I mean it needs to be updated to where earth's actual position really is in the solar system because IT HAS CHANGED. It is off by quite a bit, so how can we tell what we are really looking at? Even lying NASA admits the positions of the planets has changed. Venus is 6 full degrees off its usual path. It's about time you made the corrections to your program.
Terrasaurusrexxx - Absolutely STELLAR!!
I am so in love with these apps just from the short time that I have had them!! Super inexpensive comparatively and the calibration is perfectly on point. I am excited to be able to have detailed information at the tips of my fingertips anytime I am stargazing. Thank you for developing such a neat and informative application. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
PFS. - A planetarium in my hands!!! Beautiful!
I love this app! I have been using this app for 5 years, and am so happy it exists!
It lets you explore the sky!
And the music is so amazing!
Sometimes I’ll just open the app, even at daytime, to explore what’s surrounding us at that moment.
I have gifted friends with this app too! And they loved it!
Wqrryutggddx - Awesome, Fun, Informative!
What an awesome app; well worth the price. So cool to just look around and see what is in the sky. And click on any object and learn all about it. I like the notifications telling me what to watch for each night. The music is nice too; usually in games and apps I turn off the sound but nit the one.
Freeakyfreshh(: :p - Could be a great app
This would be a great app if I could only get it to work properly. I purchased this app and can not get it to ever properly line up with my location. I have tried it both ways and it is ALWAYS off! Every time I want to pull it up, I have to go in and try to set the location, which never lines up. I then have to go in and maneuver it so it lines up properly. Isn't this what the app is supposed to do? It is extremely frustrating! I wish I didn't spend the 1.99 on it, it was a waste of my money.
9Campbell9 - Awesome!
This app is awesome! It makes it super easy to identify what is where! We have only had this app for a few days but it truly is amazing that we are able to see even the rocket bodies (Aka space junk) we have left behind up there! I keep waiting to see a Tesla go floating by. (Laughing but not really). Awesome. Awesome app!
watchmastergeneral - No comet Neowise?
Yes the app is awsome and I used the free one for years. The paid version offers satellites which is very cool and worth the 1.99. But you’d think they could add the Neowise comet which is the brightest thing in the sky and a rare sight to see!. Disappointed that it’s not in the search or available on screen. Oh well, maybe they’ll add it next time around in 6000 years.
chuckleworth - Love this app, definitely needs fixing.
This app made it so much easier for me to teach myself about the night sky, but having to manually calibrate it every. single. time. I open. the app. is beyond frustrating. At the very least, allow us to save the manual location if your auto function is going to be as off as it is. Please update the app to incorporate this because the app is practically unusable without having the sun or moon in sight to calibrate with.
Cool guy1234545 - Always loved this app😻
This app is great to see special events happening near you, with also the great access to knowing EXACTLY when they happen. Buying the full version is definitely worth it, and if you're anyone like me, you want to see the solar eclipse in the real world, and the virtual world too.👍👍👍👍
Runbeth22 - Fun and Educational
A great app and worth the small price! I purchased it when we moved onto a large property in the country, away from the city lights. My family and I have enjoyed spotting constellations and even, just tonight, the ISS! I will be exploring more features of this app to get even more enjoyment from it.
Dr. Veritas - Expert in no way
As the title states you might want to stop reading because my opinion in no way would be sought by others.
If you are still reading, Wow! I love this application. It is great going outside and viewing the sky with this companion to tell me what I'm seeing. Watching the night sky change and seeing the constellations drawn in for me really helps me to see things differently.
Makes me want to grab a huge blanket go out in the middle of nowhere and lie down like when I was young. Watching the stars come alive and feeling again like the stars are a blanket over me.
Really like this app.
phaye1 - amazing!!!
AMAZING !!! love it... very educational & interesting, lots to learn from, & lots of surprises about the universe, the app that i go to before going to bed... it makes me smile what i see with hard to say names & figures which makes it exciting😀...we all have this app in my family, & compare what we found..❤️❤️❤️ thank u!!!
AlecBausch - Just great
Everywhere I go I have a reason to pull out my phone and look up. Pretty cool to learn when it’s not a great day to look at stars, but when you are in a place where you can see it all...it’s amazing to use, too. Would recommend the premium purchase too
TeachLa66 - Calibration doesn’t work - Revision
I had to change my review. I had to take my phone case off. Now it works beautifully!!!!
I cannot calibrate this app. I have figure 8ed until my arm hurts. I can not find a way to contact anyone to help me. I’m about to ask for my $ back!
I want my money back!
MiGWind - Entry Level
5 Stars for “Age 4+.” Educational amusement for all ages. Lots of eye candy. WARNING If you get serious with it, you will be frustrated. The gyroscope drifts and the text indicates the wrong time to look for an event. You will look in the wrong direction at the wrong time and may miss the International Space Station flyover. Without knowing the fail was in the app’s limitations, you may give up which would be very unfortunate. SkyView is not intended as an accurate science instrument. It is a very nice educational toy.
Aho13 - What happened?
I downloaded this app years ago and was eager to redownload it because I remember how amazing it was!
I open this and the location is completely off. I use the location of the sun or moon to see the accuracy, and what showed instead was a complete location error. I'm saying it was off by an inch or more on my iPhone screen. Also, it doesn't save my manual calibration. I have to redo it every time I open my app. It's inconvenient and unfortunately, has fallen far from what it used to be.
starlovergurl - Love this app
As one girl who’s obessed with stars, this app makes me soooo satisfied xXxxxxx I rated this app by using it for just one time!
P.S: i love the background music too Why don’t you release musics alone? Then i will be willing to buy them OR in apple music Itunes sjjsnqisjaoanisa plz i’m gonna wait for dissss they made me soooo comfortable
SF Presidio - My astronomy and art companion
I love this app because I can see the stars even on a cloudy night. The display shows the star patterns against the sky in daylight, clouds, or fog if the AR mode is used. You can even take a screen shot. This makes it a great tool for educational tool for both science and art instructors. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
Paradisepictures - Awesome star app BUT!!!
I absolutely love this app!
But tonight I purchased the full version hoping to see the comet 45p New Years comet and I can't find anything about any comets? Very disappointed. Hopefully you can add that feature because I'm looking all over the sky and I can't find it and I stayed up till 6am to see it. 😥😴
Thanks for a great app please add comets to the SkyView app!
lori in las vegas - Space Junk
I love the app, but with the upgraded version I have all this space junk. I can keep the satellites off or do you consider them one and the same? This app should separate the two as options. I was thinking about the latest satellite offering, but not with the other space junk.
trueblueboy2 - Star Gazer
Wished I had this when I was a boy many years ago, it would have made searching for stars, planets, constellations and satellite tracking and much more very interesting and want to learn about the solar system. It's never to late to start. I'm satisfied with this app.
mrebby - Excellent app
Very easy to use for complete beginners looking at the night sky. I have recommended it to many people, maybe 50+. I got my first telescope 5 years ago and have advanced my knowledge of the sky and my many telescopes. But SkyView is still my go to app when out observing.
Austin is music - Could not be Better!
Have watched the Skys for 50 years, but in the last few have been watching with the Grandsons.
SkyView makes it a joy for all of us. Simple for the old hands and newcomers alike to stay interested and learn of totally new observations.
Recommend to anyone!
Whatsittoyacreeper - Perfect to track full moon rising!
What a beautiful app.i always loved the stars and learned how to find them with my dad. This is much easier and fun and the music takes you to the outer space mood! Kids get fascinated and interested. And,, that full moon exact place and time of raising is awesome.
Jorge Abbenhaus - Can’t stop using it 😆
When I downloaded the full version of this app it was very fun and I like the facts it shows you of all the planets about how far they are and how many moons each one has. I can’t wait to see future updates on this app
