I have a family friend that is sick and we play around with this all the time😊😅: ) Thanks for opportunity


I can’t move it around  CR7matty7  1 star

So I use to have this app, and to be honest it was an insane app, it was so presise and perfect. But now it gets stuck on the north side and when I move my phone around it still just stays on North. Please help me ):


Like it....... but  mitchmoo13244  3 star

It is good it tells you the time it will be where it can be seen but the words are hard to see if your brightness is low

I used to use google sky before, but this app is 100times better in terms of UI and accuracy.


Great  spacehead1986  5 star

Fantastic learning tool whatever level of interest you have in the night sky, this will definitely peak your interests as you identify planets and constellations becoming more familiar with there appearance and shape every time you view them.

Simple & brilliant  Dermotjc  5 star

Point at that shiny object in the sky and it is identified immediately. Love it.

Skiddly Bop

Best App I’ve ever used  Skiddly Bop  5 star

As a stargazer since childhood, this is simply the most beautiful app out there - hands down. I could only dream of this application years ago and here we are today. It literally justifies the price of an iPad / iPhone... Nothing more to add. Would happily pay $100 for this.


Upgrade version  Cutegyrl  5 star

Great app might get the upgrade version


Wow. Such an amazing app  Dhdrgudhcgrh345  5 star

Augmented reality and seriously accurate naming of stars and planets. You gotta get this. All you do is look at a star on your screen and the app will tell you what it is called.


Brilliant  SetNta  5 star

Fantastic tool for getting to grips with the locations and movements of the stars and planets, day or night. I wish I had had such tool as a kid

A real star (finder)  gregmcevil  5 star
