After 58 years of living under the stars I can now enjoy them. Thanks so much for a simply brilliant experience!!
Does what it says. A rare thing these days. Love showing the kids.
The app is awesome it is great if ur interested in stars I would recommend downloading this app
there wasn’t my city’s name on the app so I had to use a different city name and the app showed me the same stars every time But the music was nice and calming and the information was was interesting
Good one to find star constellation. Find planets on the sky.
I have a family friend that is sick and we play around with this all the time😊😅: ) Thanks for opportunity
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 ):
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
Amazing to see what’s really out there.
I used to use google sky before, but this app is 100times better in terms of UI and accuracy.
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.
Point at that shiny object in the sky and it is identified immediately. Love it.
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.
Great app might get the upgrade version
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.
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
This app is so good. I got it to show my kids some constellations and find myself using it for me too. They think it us awaited too. My favourite app on my phone.
Great app. Simple to use. Just point it at the sky. Can't wait to use it with my kids.
