- Almost surreal

Man, best wishes for you both, happy anniversary. Do you know what would make it a 5-star app? If you could add references to the mapping, so we could get facts and information and still hi-res pics of the stars, constellations and galaxies. The deep space project is a nice touch and would love to get more info about it when I touch it. Get info and reference for it and it will be hard to beat. As, it is, it is very good. But it can be amazing. Surreal feeling of the sky and the glowing stars are just so beautiful. Nice work anyway.

- Pretty good

The controls are confusing. This, like other astronomy apps, try to do way too much for you. As soon as you start up the app, it takes you a ride thru the sky, where a combo of device movement, and finger navigation, leaving you questioning where up and down are at. You never get to go into "let me navigate exactly where I want to go, and let me spin the sky the way I WANT TO". The downside of that is that sometimes the North Star is to the top, bottom, right and left. And you are left guessing what the stars will appear like, when you go outside. I've given up on this app, because when I take it outside, it never lines up, and I am given ZERO control over CORRECTING the star map, to match the actual night sky. I understand the desire to do neet things for users, but when I have a star chart, I can turn it to match what I am looking at, not an option here.

- iPad 12" not working

I had this on my iPad Air and it worked amazingly. But since I move it to iPad Pro 12.9, the screen only shows at the bottom right corner about 1/3 of the screen. Very sad! Can this be fixed, please?

- Amazing

You'll spend hours with this!

- Positions of Objects Inaccurate...

Last night I realized that the placement of some objects is way off. As an example, M71 is depicted between the feet of Gemini. In reality, M71 is a loose globular cluster in the constellation Sagitta. It’s positioning in this app is nearly 180 degrees off. Gemini is a winter constellation, and Sagitta is a summer constellation close to Cygnus.

- Great app. Amazing how close uranus is

Like the constellations and how easy this is.

- Star tracker

Cannot get the app to stop spinning. I've tried everything. Does anyone have a solution?

- Refreshingly Great Astro. App!!

I have the entire top 10 in professional astronomy apps. Simply - This is THE best Intro to Intermediate app now available. Having said that, it has THE best graphics and smooth gps functions of ALL the apps. You heard me. I have the complex apps that will run and even control telescopes, but I often find myself grabbing this one for fast, precise viewings! It you don't have an astronomy app, and looking for one, THIS IS THE ONE TO GET. If you already have 10 or 20, you need to get it anyway for fast viewings or casual night viewing. You'll thank me. I didn't think another app would impress me, but it did.

- Fantastic star gazing app

Thanks for the gyroscope inside iPad 2, the movement is very smooth with fast reaction, and the graphics is stunning beautiful. Moving the iPad, it will automatically zoom out for a larger view of the sky, and zoom in for details when stopping. The tracker function is very helpful, with it I can easily find the Saturn by following the arrow. It's the best star gazing application I've ever seen, very impressive. Recommend to everyone who interested to know what's the name of star or planet in the sky!

- Wow smooth and beautiful on ipad3 but......

Please! Add magnitude info. Like when we center on a star or deep space object, please have the centered items info appear in a box on the side? Or over the centered item? This is a great viewing aid, and before pointing my scope it would be nice to see the magnitude of the object to know if it's worth checking out. At least magnitude info! Please! Great app! I also use sky safari 3 plus and distant suns. I have deleted many others, but I am keeping this one! Well done and beautiful! I will make five stars if magnitude info is added.

- Awesome app - and I want an iPad 2 just to run it

I don't have an iPad 2 yet, so I borrowed one to install this app while it's free. When I launched it, I was blown away. It was easy and immediately intuitive to use. More than that, it looks awesome! If I had an iPad 2 and had I seen this app, I would have paid the normal $4 price in a heartbeat. Now I can't wait to get an iPad 2, though I'll probably hold out for the 3. :)

- Very, very Good

I just downloaded this app yesterday. It tracks much, much faster and more fluidly than the other apps of this type. I also have starwalk, which is good also. I think for information and visuals, starwalk wins. However, for usability and tracking speed, this app takes first place. Plus, being free doesn't hurt either.

- Problems with forward

App is pretty good, but when I tried to forward as others, the mail icon is greyed out. I hit cancel then lost a third of the screen and no way to get it back. I deleted it and reloaded it while it was free about five times but no luck. Now I stay away from the forward arrow below the full screen button. I wish there was a fix for this. Any one else. I don't want to experiment deleting and reloading at 3.99 a pop...

- Works great, looks great

Had it for iPhone and was always reliable, then I got an iPad and had some trouble with other gazer apps. Tried and true I decided to just buy it, and within 10 seconds it was doing exactly what I wanted to. It looks great too.

- Best graphics, worst functionality

Probably the best graphics I've seen among such apps. Well done. Panning and gyro are fantastic to use, very smooth. User friendly too. Now, function wise is extremely limited. I was expected to tap on any previewed sky object and see the description, but it not there. Id give it 5 if it would be, otherwise app loosing its educative purpose.

- My kids love this, easy to use

My kids are 6 & 8 years old and just really getting into star gazing and have so much fun with this app. I love the real time point at the sky and rotate to see what you are looking at. Really fun and complete and easy to use.

- Pretty but not useful

Congrats. This has to be the prettiest astronomy app I have ever seen but it is not useful. No description of object, distance, location ( ra, dec, alt or azimuth) so I could never use this with my scope like Starwalk or skysafari3. I will keep it because it is so beautifully done. Many more years of happiness to you both and thank you for the app. Ok it will not let me submit.

- Almost great

I've tried a few astronomy apps and I like this one best EXCEPT for how it zoom in automatically when you stop moving. It always feels like it is zooming in too far. I wish I could control that aspect. Otherwise, very good.

- Unbelievable

Totally amazing!!!!! I've always wondered which stars were which and wow this totally tells you what is what!!!!! Can't even state how awesome this is!! Very smooth and pointing out where the planets are is totally cool. Definitely worth the money

- This app is incredible

Amazing app. Amazing options. The developer did an amazing job. Since the ios6 update I'm experiencing some random crashes, but other than this, really impressive app. 5 stars, congrats to the developer, awesome app!!

- Gorgeous app and very smooth

This is really well done. Wonderful graphics and the motion is so smoooooth. I really wish I could tap an object on the screen and get a popup factoid window about that object. Maybe in the future?

- A bug in forwarding the image

It's a cool app. However, I lost the menu after I clicked on forward icon followed by pressing the cancel button. I had to kill the app and restart the app again to fix it.

- Love this app (revised)

Update: this use to be my fave app .. Now, it's pretty annoying. Much more difficult to navigate. Don't think the compass is in sync. Going to delete & move on! Love this app! The animation is amazing. Easy to use. Great at night, especially on a clear night. It gives you the basic information on what you're looking at. Neat.

- Amazing!

This is by far one of the best apps that I have on my iPad. I showed it to my brother in law and he went straight to the apple store and bought an iPad. This by the way is a guy who said he hates apple products lol!

- Wow! Fast frame rate!

This app is impressive. There is ZERO lag when using the gyro function. And the ability to turn off the auto-zoom makes this a go-to app for me.

- Great

A fine replacement for 'another famous app', it doesn't disappoint. I got it when it was free, and I could not ask for more. Thank you.

- Easy to use and great information!

I like this better than SkySafari3- StarTracker is simpler to use yet rich with information. Feels like using a Mac and just works!

- Excellent astronomy resource

This has been an awesome app to use to try and find different stars, constellations, and other astronomical features.

- Better than most

There are a few apps for identifying stars, deep space objects and planets and this one is as good as any. Graphics are well done.

- Great

This application is really helpful in finding stars and other celestial objects. This really helped me with my school's astronomy unit. This is definitely an incredible app!

- Amazing!

Just went outside to use this with the family. Fantastic!! We had a blast locating all the different planets and constellations! This is the best app ever!

- Amazing experience, a must have app!

The graphics and iteration is flawless, won’t regret for purchasing.

- Amazing

I absolutely love this app, it's worth the price tag 10times over, stunning :) hopefully there is a iPhone 4s version in the works

- share button crash!!!

The share button crashes on my iPad mini 2 when I tried sharing my location

- Gyroscope stopped working

Using iPad 2. Everything worked before. I think last update screwed up orientation. App opens up, I see the sky but nothing moves. It's locked, only can come sly with finger.

- Great App!

This is a wonderful app! Smooth graphics and beautifully designed! But please fix the share buttonerror that causes the app to crash and add an object database.

- Would have been 5* if the compass works

I bought this app for my son's moon observation project. But as other reviewers pointed out, the compass does not work, making the whole app useless. It's such a shame, the app looks great and is well designed. If the compass bug is fixed, I will give it a 5 star. Please fix it!

- Problems on an iPad 2 with iOS 8 with latest version

The compass will not work if you manually set the location when off line. Since I have WiFi only, this is a definite problem.

- can

On my iPad 2 I get an error msg saying the app can't be installed as it requires a gyroscope. But of course my iPad 2 has a gyroscope so I'm mystified by this problem. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can get it to install?

- It's amazing!

This app is flawless! It's simple and easy with great features! Great if you are in a science class about astronomy! Also good just for fun!

- Please fix the compass integration

This app used to track what part of the sky the iPad was pointed at, but now it can't figure out the compass direction. Pretty much makes the app worthless. Please fix soon. It was great when it used to work.

- Well made!

Solid app! Awesome set of pictures and very smooth work!

- Lots of little bugs

There are a number of glitches that need to be fixed

- Excellent App

The app is very fluid. If you get motion sick though use with caution. Otherwise extremely awesome.

- Wow! Thanks for a truly great app!

This almost makes my telescope obsolete! And it was an expensive scope!! Very cool. Nicely thought out. Thanks!

- Beautiful

Happy anniversary! You've made a beautiful app. I can't wait to stargaze with it.

- Locked in one view

Worked as expected until I explored the tools. It is now hung in half-screen and disconnected from the auto-orientation. I can find no way to go back or display any tool icons, help, etc. fortunately I got it from apps for free. Deleting.

- One greatest helping app ever!

Simple and clear, who does not even love it haha?

- Educational

Great in the classroom. My class has to take turns viewing it. But it helps locating and looking up in the sky to what is there. Especially the Lyrid meteors . Allot of wishes from students. Wish we can project this unto the classroom screen! Great app. I and the students love it. Special Ed 4-5 th grade Class Mr. Ken Perez

- Wow

I was blown away at how fast and seamlessly this app responds. Great job! Definitely worth the price.

- Highly Valuable for Money

StarTracker is a valuable app for money. Although it is not as graphically perfect as Sky Safari series or Sky View series, it is still an excellent choice as it allows one using an iPhone or iPad to see all around them. Just like a Planetarium in your hands.

- Must have app.

Had this one for about an hour now and I already know its gonna be a favorite for a long time to come, graphically awesome and very very accurate. If you own a telescope this is your must have app for sure. Even if you don't you and your kids will love thisBy the way, I don't work for these guys just giving credit where credits due. 5 awesome stars. Ipad2.

- Awesome app, so smooth

it's a must own app on ipad2, the best star finding app ever!

- Nice try, BUT...

'Star Walk' is the bench mark for all these types of astrological viewing apps and this one does not come near it in quality and ease of use. If you want say "wow, this is really amazing" then get yourself 'Star Walk'. The only sort of plus I can give this app is that the app size is much smaller than 'Star Walk', but therefore this app needs a constant Wi-Fi or 3G signal to work.

- A toy

I bought this app based on the positive reviews, but was disappointed. Lots of eye candy, but little substance for anyone genuinely interested in astronomy. A toy really. I'd give it 3 stars, but since the developer boldly claims this to be 'the best star gazing app on iPad2', I will judge it 2 stars by that standard. There are MUCH better astronomy apps out there: Star Walk, SkySafari 3 and Luminos to mention a few.

- Inaccurate

Shows Sun at the other side of the world when it clearly daytime.

- another one

Meh You've screwed up royally somehow. This is the only app to have: 1. Allowed me to download it twice without letting me know I already installed it (I now have two of the exact same versions on my iPad, listed twice in my installed apps and 2 icons that start separate instances of it at the same time) 2. Crashed my iPad. Genius.

- Awesome

Very KEWL !

- Awesome!

Very interesting and instructive.

- Best one so far

I've tried a few these things and this was by far the best.

- Wow. This is cool

Nice app. Free? Amazing.

- Great graphic bur crashes sometimes

Thanks for the great app. Get it while it is free. Would like to see these improvements: 1. show the readings of the grid. The grid has no markings making it almost useless. 2. Prefer to see a line for horizon with the direction such as N, S, SE, etc. identified.

- Nice but.....

Shame, it looks so good but it crashes 10 seconds in starting up. Please fix or give refund. Would be a 5* app if it work! Thanks

- Perfect!

This is the best star app In the AppStore. So many features! Also it's extremely accurate compared to other apps like this. StarTracker HD IS THE BEST!

- awesome

thanks for a really nice app!!

- Amazing

Amazing app to watch and learn all the stars in the night sky. Beautiful HD graphic.

- Star tracker

Amazing One of the best apps will use it every starry nite

- Not iPad 1 compatible

Requires the gyroscope in the iPad 2? Really? There are at least a half dozen other astronomy apps that work just fine for the original iPad. Check out GoSkyWatch Planetarium instead.

- The best

Best sky app I've used. Super smooth.

- Amazing

This app is wonderful it shows all the stars and planets in an interactive sky globe which is so smooth and fluids, of you want to see the magic of the iPad gyroscope then you should download this app!

- It's great!

Very smooth,and beautiful.

- Horrible Useless App

It show the sky and a selection of celestial objects. You cannot pan or zoom out or do anything. It will show you what is there and that's all. No exploration or explanation.

- Out of this world!

This app is the best app for stargazing!

- Ios5

Loved this until they made it ios5 only.. Cannot update now.

- Really Cool

This app really does what it says it does!!! Download it, it's awesome 8D

- Good

Well,Its a good app

- Don't buy

This app does not work. I can't even find mars on the app and I know where it is!

- Ugh!!

Why is this in the App Store? Crashes, doesn't make sense, of very little use.

- Used to work

I don't know what happened, but this app used to be great. Now it's all discombobulated.

- Crashes

Useless...crashes every minute.

- Thx 4 the gift~

Nice app~

- Happy aniversary


- Great App, Happy Anniversay :)

Great App, Happy Anniversay :)
