Night Sky Comments & Reviews 2022

- If you don’t have this app you’re missing out.

I would have never known the International Space Station orbits the Earth about 15 times per day. I now watch it orbit twice just about every night. On non-cloudy nights anyway. It’s amazing. It’s like a star shooting across the night sky and Night Sky alerts us a couple minutes in advance then shows us exactly where to look. My 6 yr. old daughter has changed from wanting to be a veterinarian to wanting to be a space station driver. ;-) Not sure if the main intention of this app is educational or to get kids dreaming of space travel but it does both very well. Only had it for a few days now so it will be fun to see what else it does. I imagine we have only scratched the surface. Definitely spend the $10 on the year membership. Jumping from planet to planet and seeing the sky and stars from their perspective is worth $100. We saw a planetarium show this week at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum. This app is like your own show. There is a ton of activity going on in the night sky. It’s so much more interesting and fun to see when you know what you’re looking at.

- Missing some things

I love this app but lately it’s not picking up everything. There is a bright object to the top left of the moon right now, in close relation visually, and it’s not registering on the app. I gave it the benefit of the doubt that the bodies showing up a little further out were it but none of them lined up with position in the sky in relation and visual proximity to the moon. The app used to be spot on. Second time in 2 months I’ve been disappointed with as many times using it. Last time it wouldn’t show me where the moon was at all when I was trying to brag about the app to friends. Next night: It was Mars. Why wouldn’t it be superimposed over one another and have something that says what it is? And when you try to zoom in to a local body you get visually flooded with our local cluster of galaxies (honestly, that’s annoying. I know it’s a combination of our galaxy with other galaxies mingled in, but help me learn from local bodies! At least give a staged zoom prompt where you can zoom to the inner planets, then the outer planets, then the galaxy, followed by the super clusters if you wanna take it deep lol. Also, this used to have a super easy to use function where you type in a local body and arrows guide you to its location in the sky. Why would you get rid of that?! 🤷‍♂️

- Honestly, worth it

I’ve been using Nightsky for a long little while now. I found it by going through Trial and Errors of trying to find the best app to look at the sky. I’ve sat i went though 5-6 apps before I was happy with my choice. It’s offers you so many features without even paying for it, as you would have to do for any other app. It’s crazy. Because it’s a free app that offers you AR experiences to blend with your night sky, real time constellations, stars, galaxies, Nebulas, satellites, and even major NASA things like, Hubble Telescope, International Space Station, Meteor Showers And so much more. It has tours of planets too. They also have media news updates everyday about anything going on in space like, The Mercury and Mars Conjunction and Major things that will be able to be seen with the Naked Eye. I’ve dragged this on for too long but, over all it’s the best app to use for everyone who likes Astronomy and for Astronomers. -Iyana

- Nice app but a little confusing to use

Update. I started using sky guide and it is must easier to use. If you just want an app to show you what is in the sky that is a good app. Night sky is too complicated. I think I like this app but it is a little confusing to use. First it doesn't seem to reflect the actual sky. For instance, when I point it at Ursa Major it doesn’t show it exactly where it is in the sky. So, I am never sure what I am looking at when I look at the actual sky. It is like it just shows a map of the sky and isn’t really showing me the actual sky. I tried to use the sky blending but I can’t figure out how it works. The tutorial is lacking. I would like to see more explanation of each feature in the help section. Also in the preferences, there is no explanation of what each option is. For example, what does it mean if I enable the “moon” preference? I saw in one of the reviews the developers said to use the compass align to fix the view of the sky. I tried that but how does it work? What does the + or - degrees mean? More explanation is needed. I want to just point it at the sky and see exactly what I am pointing at be reflected in the view. I have had this app for years but just picked it up again. The older version was much simpler and more accurate.

- Froze up in the field; little in the way of instructions

The app worked great at home but when I drove a few miles away to look for Neowise and there was no WiFi, I connected my iPad to my iPhone hotspot, which worked well for everything on the internet EXCEPT Night Sky, even when I connected my iPad to the USB port in my car. The app didn’t respond as I moved my iPad—I could spin the display in any direction so North could be South, e.g.—so essentially it was no help at all with locating anything. Given that the user is likely to enter areas with no WiFi, there should be some way of addressing this scenario. Which leads me to my other complaint. The tutorial is so bare boned it’s difficult to figure out how to use some features. I don’t mind exploring on my own; in fact it’s rather fun. But sometimes I’d discover how to do something and later couldn’t remember how I did it, and there’s no guide to help, so I’d have to figure it out all over again. There were a couple of features I couldn’t get at all, like the Siri voice command to find an object. So, overall, while the app offers great feature, it doesn’t provide a very good means of helping you use them. Disappointing.

- I like it/some bugs though

So, I’ve had this for a while. This is my first review however. It’s usually pretty solid. No complaints. I haven’t used it in a while and just did the update. There’s a My Views feature that I’m trying to use for an upcoming trip. The app crashes/shuts down every time I choose a date and time and press save. It doesn’t matter if it’s my location or a far flung one. Tonight or a month from now. Just crashes. It’s annoying. Also the Night Sky Views and Stargazing Event tabs don’t work. Says something about internet connection. My internet is working perfectly fine everywhere else (even the rest of the apps features). All in all I like the app. The latest upgrade does have some bugs/glitches. Or maybe it’s me. Could be. Don’t think so though. Just a note, I’ve used the free version until tonight. I just upgraded to the free trial. Not sure if or how that’s effecting it’s performance although I’d imagine it would normally be better.

- Amazing, but can have a few tweaks!

I downloaded this app, and was very surprised! I had gone through trial and error, but this app was overall the best. Okay, now to the things that can improve: 1. When you click on the place that shows what the weather condition is, the temperature, and when the sun and moon will go up or down, the app automatically sets the time to when the sun goes down. I would love if the app automatically set to the current time. 2. When I search for a faint object (Proxima Centauri for example), the app shows me the location, but no pointers or anything tell me where the object is. It is impossible to find some objects 😢. 3. Please show moons of other planets in our solar system, or some planets from different stars. I would love to see solar systems of other stars. Finally, please do not send me the link to your help website, just read the review and try to improve. In no way do I think this is a bad app, quite frankly...I love it! Just please listen to me and try to make this the best stargazing app out there.

- Good to bad... to not so bad.

Edit: really surprised, pleasantly, by the developer response. Improvements came quickly, though more fine tuning is needed. I’m still very impressed by their passion to put out a quality product and customer service! Original review: Received an alert on my watch that the ISS would be flying over and offered to take me to it. I thought, why not... hazy, but might get lucky. So, the display on the watch showed a pretty high path (as opposed to those low on the horizon). So, keep checking my watch face arrow pointing up/down to pinpoint location. I grab my phone and open the app, met with a sales pitch 8 pages long! (Longer than most ISS passes). Find the end, close it and look for the ISS icon to appear where the arrows on the watch are pointing. Nothing. Turn to go back inside, and there it is much further north gliding across the sky NOT where the arrows/flight path were pointing! I didn’t even bother to check the app on the phone as it couldn’t even sync with it’s counterpart on the watch. Super frustrating!

- Perspective

Had app for about 3 weeks and probably tried to use it twice. A little complicated to connect with what’s really going on for me personally. Tonight a random notification came through from this app (they haven’t been blowing me up all the time with notifications). ISS FLYOVER STARTS IN 5:00. Then the countdown began automatically on my watch to 0 and I finally am able to locate where the station should be on screen. Just click and the trajectory is there to guide you. As I see a faint glimmer of light appear from the west in a faint sundown glow sky. I had binoculars but can’t really make out any parts of object. I a sit and watch it make it’s way through the sky right at it’s highest point it came together to be able to persevere how fast we really are spinning giving me a euphoric nausea. Happy spinning. Great App! Easy to navigate with some practice and guides.

- Beautiful app and good customer service

I downloaded this app because my three-year old son and I like going outside at night just before his bedtime to play and look at the moon and stars, and I just wanted to be able to tell him which planets and constellations we were seeing. This app did that and so much more. I had no idea what was orbiting our planet! I also love the widget. My son also likes to use the AR feature in the house and sit the sun or the moon in our living room. I haven’t used even half of what the app offers yet and I decided to purchase the lifetime subscription. I wanted the full experience for when I was ready to use it, but mostly I felt that even the free features were worth the price. I did run into an issue where the app was not recognizing that I was Premium. Every time I opened it, it thought I was a free user and then I had to “restore purchase” to get it to work again. I emailed customer service for help and they were super responsive and worked with me to try to figure out what was wrong. The latest update fixed the issue. Overall, we’re thrilled with what this app has to offer - I’m learning so much! - and recommend to anyone looking for a great star gazing app.

- Subscribe or forget it.

A great app with significant detail and great graphics, but I am going to delete it and look for something else. There are two problems. First, if you live in an area with moderate light pollution, the app is too detailed but not accurate enough when aiming your phone skyward to determine anything not identifiable by being in a constellation. For instance, I can see Vega but not the surrounding stars because their magnitude is less and don’t come through the pollution; but they show up on the app. I think the app is identifying it as Vega, despite the fact I am not pointed directly at it and there are no surrounding stars for reference. The second problem is just annoying. Any time you zoom in on anything the app pops up a screen advertising the “premium” annual subscription- which is costly. This pops up so frequently the app is essentially unusable. Great app if you want to subscribe and don’t live in a light polluted area. Otherwise… just an annoying gimmick to get you into an expensive subscription.

- Can’t use the app after paying for it :( it was great while it lasted

I purchased the app a long time ago and haven’t been enjoying it since unfortunately after the recent updates I have not been able to log back on and when I hit the button that says restore purchases it just continues to load and does not allow me access. I sent an email to support and I am waiting to see if they can help me resolve my issue being that I have already paid for the app and have not been able to access it for sometime otherwise the app is fantastic I love it and while I was deployed in the army many of my battle buddies were fascinated with how accurate and informative it is others wound up buying the app themselves

- Great app, annoying “reminders”

I really love the app. I use it at least once a week. My one and only complaint is that the app asks me every time I start it up if I want to upgrade. No. I do not want to f’ing pay for the upgrade. *edit* What kind of response is that from the developer? I am well aware the paid services offered. My issue is that the app offers these paid services too often. I would love to turn the app on without having to decline the paid services. When I’m outside using it, I usually have my telescope with me. I’ll find what I want to look at with the app, then put my phone on my pocket. When I want to move on to a different object, I open phone, and am asked if I want to pay for an upgrade. Every single time. I understand you have to advertise the paid services but it is a bit much. It’s as if you did not read my initial review and did the exact thing that I have a problem with... advertise the paid services.

- Excellent changes; Great improvements

Hi! So I posted a review not too long about the entire app and with the update this app is the number 1 night sky app! So first off AR Sky Blending isn’t lagging anymore. It’s smooth and I can actually find the stars I want to see in the sky. Last review I said it was inaccurate, but now it’s pretty accurate. Next, I would like to tell just how much better this app is than the other night sky apps. So there’s an app called sky guide and sky guide costs $2.99 and it’s “The Best” night sky app. I decided to compare this app to that app. Holy. Night sky was better in every single way. It was easier to use, had more features, it showed the names, and had better detail. And I haven’t made any purchases on night sky. I could go on but I still have school work. I do have a couple of questions. How come Neptune is rotating so fast and spinning clockwise? If Neptune did actually rotate on its axis like that then this app should get 6 stars but it doesn’t. Second, what does the red/black button do? (The button that makes the app red and black) I have no clue what it’s suppose to be for. Overall massive improvements and I hope to give an even better review some time.

- Amazing app

This app is incredible and it is very fun and educational! Every morning I leave for work before the sun rises and I see the same patterns of stars and constellations that I can recognize like any normal person. But then I started noticing the changes in stars as the seasons went by, so I became curious as to what stars were which, especially since some were so much brighter than others. Turns out I’ve been looking at Venus the whole time, and I never would have known this if not for this app. You can also tap on anything you see to learn more information, including satellites, Jupiter’s moons, far off nebula, etc. I even found the Hubble telescope way out there in the sky with the app! You can even locate the International Space Station with this app. Definitely worth 5 stars.

- They should really give more than 5 stars on this app

This is seriously the most amazing app you can ever download into your iPhone. I can’t believe how amazing it is to see space live, see the satellites moving, and gives information like what date it was launched, where it launched, and show descriptions of different stars and planets. It uses all AR, and it is amazing to see planets and satellites so closely and detailed. I am in love with how this app is made, and for sure deserves more than 5 stars. Developers: You have done such an outstanding amazing job with this app. Highly recommended for anyone who loves space and is into science; or just curious about live space. Love this app, and will always recommend people to have it in their iPhones.

- Has potential......

However, I downloaded it 4 times and I it was ok when I first opened it ( after the download), but then it kept crashing and freezing up. Even when I pick “Always” on the location settings( which I never do for any app), and turn the ISS and Iridium notifications off it still crashes and freezes. Does it want me to pick the premium thing? I don’t want to though!!! I don’t want to do the FREE trial!!!! That means I don’t want to do the premium thing if I don’t want to try the FREE trial!!!! I’m supposed to have a choice in this, right?!?! Developers, if you fix this, then I WILL give this a five star review. The one thing I haven’t tried is to “Use Night Sky Recommended” notifications settings. I might try that. If you have any other suggestions please share. Edit: I have now tried “Use Night Sky Recommended”. It froze up. I do need to update my phone, so I’ll try that. Second edit: Same circumstances as above, except my phone was updated.

- Science teacher, Astronomy buff...

Clear, accurate, helpful!!! Good job “guys”... thanks for your efforts!!! So as SOON as I wrote the favorable review ... still true... the jerks in the sales department began FLOODING the app with ad after ad totally blocking my screen with obnoxious pressure to UPGRADE!!! Totally ruined my night and repeatedly angering me at the arrogant , rude way they tried to bully me into buying up ... which I would gladly done had they not been such manipulative jerks ... now I’m going to a different site and will justifiably badmouth their sales dept should anyone ask... very low class!! So then I got a lame, sarcastic, nerdy reply from a “site developer “ who chided me for being upset with the tricky , repeated ads , that rudely interrupted the site over and over while I tried to actually USE the site... Long story short it’s a good site but use while they hammer you with ads ... so either give the site free and allow users to CHOOSE to upgrade or stop acting like good guys and just charge folks upfront and honestly...... you lying jerks... ( sales guys ) 👍

- Good on my iPad

Nice app for my iPad. Good graphics. Most of all, I like its usefulness. As an amateur astronomer, I’d like to get the most out of least effort... I want to stargaze rather than play with the electronics. Setup makes that happen. I also like the notifications given before a noteworthy event occurs. Moving the iPad over the sky like a planetarium is sweet especially with an uncomplicated horizon. 2 criticisms. 1) I’d wish the app could overlay the equatorial and RA/Dec across the sky. The ecliptic is helpful but just not quite enough. 2) I’d like to be able to reduce/increase the number of stars, especially in lieu of light-pollution. The more obvious the target, the easier it is to match up map to sky. There’s a bit of a learning curve over my other device. Having said that, I really like this app and look forward to using it.

- Light pollution

It seems to work alright,but I live outside of town an with the light pollution I cannot see that many stars. Well I can’t see the hundreds of stars they show.......I had written about how with the light pollution that I could not make out the stars that I could see compared with the Hundreds of stars that are shown on the screen. So I gave the APP 3 Stars but I was contacted by email by the company. I had no idea that if you place 2 fingers on the screen an swipe down all of the stars are removed,except for the ones that I can see. WOW what a difference! Thanks again for your email and help or I would have never been able to enjoy the night sky like I can now.

- Disappointing...

I went into this app thinking, “Hey, this looks really cool,” and I then saw all of its features and downloaded it. At first glance, this app was quite the spectacle. You could zoom in and see countless stars, view satellites, and view distant constellations. But then, I saw the first problem, it very poorly lined up with the actual night sky. In other terms, it was very inaccurate. I then became very interested in the premium, so I bought a yearly subscription. I was very excited to use the new features that were unlocked such as a AR solar system and an AR planetary portal. But then, I realized both of these features were poorly implemented. The portals glitched and the solar system was very glitchy as well. At the end of the day, I think this app desperately needs improvement in order to match the expectations you set for me in the preview. So please, developers, please try to implement the features promised better.

- Great app

So much fun. You get a lot of great ,real time stars in all directions. We went to a local observatory on a whim and my wife showed me this app. It is a fantastic guide to the other part of Mother Nature. We saw Jupiter and Saturn , along with the waxing moon through the telescopes and the app had us walking around in the dark filled with wonder, able to see with our naked eyes and identify cuz of the app. I literally love this app. The notifications give me relevant planet positions as they happen and keep me engaged in the heavens throughout my day, and that really makes the day better. Once you poke at it some you figure it out. It’s relatively intuitive as well as easy to understand instruction wise. Get the app.

- This. Is. Amazing.

I was simply wasting away at home, when a bored search led me to this app. Intrigued, I downloaded it. It seemed rather well-made, so I continued. I fiddled around with some things after swiping through the tutorial, and I was astonished. There are so many great features to this app that fascinated me, for example— the augmented reality, where the app mapped out the heavens across my bedroom ceiling. The stargazing aides, that help you find a nice, quiet park on the right day and with the right conditions. Or the notifications that can literally alert you when the International Space Station is flying over your head— or when a Uranian dawn breaks. There’s so much to this app, and if you have any interest in astronomy-or astrology- try this app out.

- Incredible

I wanted to be an astronomer when I was younger because learning about the stars and planets and other extraterrestrial bodies was always so fascinating. I have never looked up to the sky and seen something other than magnificent beauty, and with this app I can bring back my childish wonder and appreciation for learning. Being able to identify the seemingly insignificant dots in the dark sky brings a sense of joy I honestly can’t describe. I really love how much information you can find on each and every speck in the universe. Maybe there are flaws in this app just like any other creation, but I believe that I’ll be able to look past any that I come across due to the purity I’ve found in this money-making scheme. God bless

- Great App & great support!

I loved the app but did not love the “Glass Constellations” that kept blocking my view and for me it was a distraction for me personally. I looked in app but the options and menu choices are so many (a very detailed app with lots of options) I got lost and did not know how to disable these. This is where the great support came in. Quickly the developer replied to my question and showed me hoe to disable these in the preferences. If you have that same concern just follow their direction and go to preferences and there are 3 boxes or buttons you can tick off for glass constellations. I just ticked all 3 off so I can see the night sky clear and beautiful. This app is an awesome support for knowing what’s in space around us. Thank you!

- I love this app, but I have one problem...

I absolutely LOVE this star app. I like how you can tap on an object and look more closely at it. The only thing is, I don’t know if it’s my phone or the app, but I tapped on a space station and it went to my photos like it should, but then it went black and went off of the app. It happened like 5 times. Again, I don’t know if it’s just my phone or not though. But other than that I think that this app is really cool. I use it for my telescope to look at planets. Thanks for reading! If you have time, I would like it if you could tell me what’s going on, or if it’s just my phone. My phone is really old, so it could very well be my phone. Thanks for your time!

- I love this app except...

I really love this app, especially the 3D models, but I have a problem- every once in awhile it crashes and I have to go back in. How do I fix that? I have iPad 7th generation. Thanks. Updated response: hi I have two other issues: 1. Can there be a button instead for the premium offer because whenever I zoom out really far to look at the galaxy it pops up, and it’s kind of annoying. 2. There’s this glitch or something where when I search for “Earth” in the search bar and click the button for the 3-d model, all I see is empty space. Could that be fixed? Over all, this is a great app! 😀

- 100% Paid App: Misleading!!

This app is 100% pay to enjoy. The “free” price tag on the store front I just that, a front. One you open the app you are forced to sign up for a monthly service of $1.99 per month before you can use it. Sure the first month is free but this is absolutely insane... Apple revolutionized the media works with the invention of the $0.99 song, the $0.99 download, and the former $0.99 movie rental. And now this app that hopes to secure a blind $20 per year for intermittent use! The most infuriating part of this experience has been that it’s in fact an Editor’s Pick. Sure the content is probably amazing and the functionality highlights everything Apple does well or at least wants us to appreciate/focus on. BUT the promise of consumer experience + value + entertainment should factor into these designations as well. If you’re not going to call this a paid app, you’re failing on the first promises are broken.

- Performance issues | fixed

I have had this app before and enjoyed the quality. Downloading it again after updates from the app and iOS has made this app literally unusable; you cannot swipe or skip through the tutorial without the app crashing. I hope this gets fixed so that people can continue to enjoy the app. ——————— Update: Restarting my phone seemed to work! The app works amazing and i highly recommend it for anyone with interest in the stars. There are still occasional crashes but these seem to be issues more on the part of my device rather than the app.

- Two things in the way

Two things are making this app too frustrating to use for me. Every time I open the app a huge add appears (for the Grand Orrery) that requires a long scroll to dismiss. That’s very frustrating. When the app finally opens, and I’m looking at a part of the sky that usually contains objects I’m interested in, the Milky Way, as represented in the app, makes seeing objects almost impossible. For some reason the way this app represents the Milky Way looks like an acid trip, Loaded with bright colors and a very complex. I haven’t been able to find anything in the preferences to turn this off, or to make it look more naturalistic. Strangely if I select “real sky representation“, it makes all the planets pin sized, but the Milky Way remains Day-Glo red and purple. This essentially makes it even harder to see objects against the app representation of the Milky Way.

- Astronomy-Great App

Looked at stars since 12( embarrassed) at 70. Still can visually find many. This app, like many has so many applications. Problem is Weather, I missed many due to clouds, rain, etc. I think it is worth it , I found Orion, this did as well. I took nice photo. -an amateur star gazer- 1 of top apps in astronomy I like. Try it- just hope for good clear skies, thank you. I watched starts as soon as I could look up . Because vision cha, this app, will find what you want. I knew where it was, so I took beautiful photo of Orion. Read reviews, if you like astronomy ( they do vary in price), This was well worth it & designed well. Thank You

- Amazing buy it now!

I just want to say first off this app is amazing you can see every single planet the only downside is I do not like the music I think you should leave that no offense though the app screwed the other thing is I think you should be able to zoom in so you can see the plan is better otherwise the details amazing I love the ratio and just how you can see every name of what is like in outer space and it’s not something you get to do every day so the developer I thank you for making this app it’s really good! Your app is very good and I love the colors and the concept. Thank you

- issues

I used the premium version for over two years and for nine of those months, the portals did not work, I’d open it up and it would either crash or freeze on where I was creating the portal. I downgraded to the free version but then saw there was an update so again I paid for the full version. Still, all it does is crash. I’m using an iPhone XR with the latest iOS. I have absolutely no problems with any other app. I have installed and reinstalled, I’ve gone from premium to free and doctor premium. Nothing helps. It is the single most important feature in why are use this. Why am I paying for something that I literally can access. I just don’t understand can somebody please help me? I see others have the same issues but, there’s no solution

- I Cried!!!

I just downloaded this app because I saw the most brightest, beautiful star in the sky and I was curious to see if it was a planet. Sure enough, it was the planet Saturn, one of my favorite planets and it is in the constellation Sagittarius, which is my astrological sign. I swear this app made me cry and as long as I’ve had a phone with app capabilities, an app has never made me cry before. You can see live views of the night sky and you can even see what satellites and space junk are floating out there!! This app is so amazing I cannot put it into words. You just have to download it and see! A must if your are a space junkie like me!!!

- Awesome, but...

This app is awesome. It looks great and provides even more info than the Sky Guide app which I also have. But my main issue with this app is simply the fact that I can’t use it for 5 minutes without getting a full screen pop-up BEGGING me to pay monthly for the premium membership at least 10 times. It’s so annoying. I can understand the pop-up coming up once or twice when you first use the app, but for it to continuously pop up multiple times during use is so annoying, and makes the app somewhat annoying/difficult to use. You don’t need to pay money for any “premium” features, when the app pretty much already gives you what you want for free.

- Disappointed

I have used this app for many years and proclaimed all of the great things that initially made me love it. I primarily use it in the warmer weather in the Northeast. I am guessing an upgrade or three happened since I last used it. While I was with some friends at the beach the other night we caught when we debated was a planet. When I tried to resolve the debate via this app it was like something I’d never seen. The familiar functionality I once knew was gone. If I could go back to what I once purchased and had I would be there in a heartbeat. I see there are options to upgrade but I don’t even have a clue what I’ve lost. I guess I will look for something that functions like what I came to know and love. I enjoyed many years of using and enjoying the app which made me purchase it. The enhancements were great but like they say too much of a god thing.....

- Buggy, zooms too quickly, more:

As the title stated if you pinch to zoom it goes way way too quickly and becomes uncontrollable and you lose whatever you’re trying to focus on. Also the search function doesn’t always work and as far as I can tell when you put in something that doesn’t give a result it doesn’t tell you “No results” it just shows nothing. I know that’s nitpicky but it’s also very counterintuitive. And finally it appears that not everything is cataloged in this app because i’ve been using it for the last few weeks to try and identify a star that I keep seeing in the sky and it can’t do it. Maybe you need the premium version to get everything because the free version certainly isn’t even worth downloading.

- Clunky bloatware avoid at all costs

No free option which is fine. Some things cost and there’s a trial. What could go wrong? Well let me tell you. Do you miss the early days of the internet when certain websites had pop up after pop up? Well good news have I got the app for you! Do you want an over abundance over information all at once rendering the point moot? Well good news have I got the app for you! The Screen is littered with graphics. Point it at a location it may be a planet it may be a star it may be part of a super cluster. How does the app determine what it is? By showing _everything_ all at once. In the same spot. It asks if you want to review the app. Heaven help you if you hit “remind me later” because later to this app means in 30 seconds. So the intrusive clutter has finally gotten to you and you want to cancel your subscription? Follow this guide: go to manage subscription cancel. A prompt will show up asking if you are sure. Click on manage then another prompt will say sorry to see you go renew subscription for .99 cents? Click manage. To save time you’re going to have to click manage on several more prompts before you can final get to the point where you can cancel. What a terrible app.

- Great support

This is a great app for learning about the heavens and all the beautiful works that have been created. I like how its set up and laid out with different learning tools. The light pollution percentage is also nice to know. I dont have to drive more than an hour or so and I can be in a much darker area of the state for viewing the dimmer objects. I had a little bit of an issue with using the app but a very quick reply from the support team cleared everything up. This is a great app accompanied by a great support team and I recommend it to anyone who is even just a bit curious about wonderous night sky.

- best star app I have see

unbiased review, real user. just get the full version and play with it until you get the hang of it. There are so many features. Revealing all that is layered in there feels like your finding new easter eggs all the time. An incredible app that a lot of work. It's clear a lot of thought was put into it. Completely puts that Astronomy 101 class I took in college 30 years ago to shame. Anyone one who gripes of wishes for more, well then step up and make your own app. Otherwise for the good of all just promote this one without whine.

- Used to be favorite app

Used to love this app and there are multiple settings that have been lost over time. The last nail in the coffin is this new “widget” design which informs me that URANUS is Going Down. It used to show me stargazing conditions and weather and more useful things. Super lame evolution of what could’ve been a useful tool. You used to be able to change visibility and now you can’t. You used to be able to change the date/time of the stars you’re looking at easily. Now I can’t figure out how to close the absurdly over informative pop ups that have tiny text. Again, super disappointed as a star lover that this app has succumbed to “look” instead of function. Sorry night sky.

- Not good at its most basic function.

All I want to do is know what star/planet I’m looking at in the sky. There’s literally one bright light, it’s probably Venus, but I’m not sure. I open up this app, point the phone at the sky and there’s a lion along with zillions of other stars and planets. There is no way to tie in what I’m seeing on screen to what is in the actual sky I’m seeing. If there is a way to get all the extraneous garbage off the screen and simply have the app identify the one visible point of light in the sky? Also, I’m pretty sure in paid $6 to support this app in 2012 and somehow lost premium. Now there are ads for premium everywhere. Too much content and not good at its original mission of identifying stars you see in the night sky.

- Useless in the city

All i want to do is figure out what that bright star is in my city sky. Unfortunately night sky shows every single star in the sky with no way to filter by magnitude. Every attempt to filter it's data actually expands it. Think you might see the star your want, so pinch to zoom? Night sky offers additional detail, immediately drowning what you wanted to pinpoint, in more than you could possibly see unaided and all visibly similar on the screen. AR overlay to maybe help identify? A hazy mess that has no hope of mapping to the actual image in the screen. It's like if you asked for directions to the bathroom in a museum and they handed you the blueprints to the building, all floors superimposed into the same sheet. Thanks?

- Great first impression

The pay ad came up immediately, I x’ed it out, and was able to show my friend constellations and talk about the stars as they appeared on the screen. Gorgeous models, very detailed and easy to use interface. Way better than SkyView where you have to pay to see the constellations. For my use case, Night sky was excellent: it complimented and enhanced my experience, I am keeping it on my phone, and will probably consider a paid version. Btw no login or whatever for the free version; it was so easy to use. Thank you devs great ux ❤️

- I’ve had this app for years, big improvements. But..

I’ve had this since the days of IPhone 4 and it’s always been great. This latest version has a ton of improvements- better AR. A ton of new info, detailed moonscape, lot of cool features. Etc. However, the one thing that is driving me absolutely nuts now is I am constantly getting the pink full screen to “subscribe, free trial.” This just pops up all the time at random times as I’m touring the skies. I know this is the new trend with many apps, a way to make money - I get it. It just becomes a turn off when it keeps asking me 10-15 times as I browse through the interface.

- This is inaccurate...

Hold on a second, this app always had an AR feature. Except it used to come with the app purchase and didn't require a yearly subscription... I'll leave my original review below, which describes the quality of the AR feature before it required a subscription. Make your own judgement. Original review: The idea is amazing, but the auto-tracking feature is useless. At least it is on my iPhone 4. Even after calibrating my compass and locating an impeccable 3G signal this app struggles to pan an inch across the sky even while I spin myself around in circles. Slowly, quickly, portrait, landscape.. it doesn't matter. I wish there was a constellation search feature so I could use it as a nice looking constellation locater, but alas.. all I can use this for is a stripped down version of google sky.


Just trying to click on a planet or anything with the Apple TV remote is pure torture. Doing anything on this app on Apple TV is nearly impossible and not worth the trouble. The app is SO hypersensitive and the remote has a mind of its own so the cursor slides around everywhere, it takes several tries to keep the cursor steady on the item you want to look at and click on it before the cursor decides that you should instead look at something else. I like the app a lot, but can’t imagine paying for it. Please fix this.

- About the whole night sky

Can’t see the constellations go to the app/play store and search up Night Sky This app is really useful for many of reasons. Going to our first reason you can see any constellations with this app even thought it’s foggy or cloudy or any other weather. Secondly if you have trouble looking at constellations like me just go to The app night sky and you will now know theses constellation in no time! I wouldn’t miss out if I were you! There are many more reasons but I would like you to check the app out first and then tell the community your opinions! Bye

- The life experience of this app

This is amazing it actually helps you visualize of what it looks like you can see the shapes of words in there and it will be very very helpful for other kids I want to be archaeologist are people that study the sky it’s not fair that people can’t see this. Whenever I see this I think of something that’s amazing something that’s wonderful but when other people are dumb space when I have fun I’ll never take time because space has its own language of saying I love you since

- Not user friendly, basically ad for paid version

I like knowing what I’m looking at and the thought of being able to see the ISS was pretty cool. I live in a city, there are definitely not as many bodies that are visible as the app shows, would be nice to have a setting to adjust for light pollution since there is a map. The layout was not very intuitive, and the tutorial was long and difficult to understand as a novice to astronomy. I could have lived with those issues, but it seemed like pressing any option in any screen works trigger an ad for the paid version where selecting no thanks takes you to a different screen than where you cane from. Unless the paid version was intuitive and adjusted for any light condition, basically a different app, then I wouldn’t even consider buying.

- It’s awesome

I remember having a stargazing app before but it wasn’t as good as this one. It’s good to look at the sky without having to go outside with all the mosquitos and even if it’s cloudy you don’t need to bother about mourning because there’s no stars out because you have this app. It’s great to know what constellations you are looking at or even if there is that one orange dot off in the distance you may realise that this isn’t just a orange dot but it’s Mars or a part of the Milky Way. It’s great to know what beauties of the world are above or below us. I also love the news because then I can look them up myself if I want more info because they are always interesting and fun to read. Another good thing about this app is the fact that if you click on a star, satellite, planet or moon it will will give you great info also with a better look at the object with the 3D imagery. As you can see this is a great app and I hope that you download it because it is out of this world. ;)

- The Google Maps of Astronomy

I have used this app for a few years now and I actually recall when I first searched the App Store for an astronomy/constellation/satellite tracking app, I really didn’t have high hopes ... downloaded a few of the top results and was pretty disappointed .... until I tried a Night Sky! I have actually been very very happy and very pleasantly surprised with this app. It is so easy to use and accurate!! For me, I love trying to catch a glimpse of satellites passing over just after dusk and night sky makes that effortless to do! Thanks guys 😁

- Need a bug fix

Overall a great all, I absolutely enjoy using it. However there is a bug. I used to live in the northern hemisphere, and when I click on a star the app displays info about its times of rising and setting based on my geolocation. I recently moved to down under, and all of a sudden everything is wrong. Take Canopus for an example. It’s so bright up in the night sky at 6.30pm on 10 April, however the app says it’s below horizon and rises at 7.05am. It appears that the info was still based on the northern hemisphere. I’ve tried reinstalling the app, making sure my location is correctly shown in the app, but no help. I believe this is an easy fix and will this app a killer for stargazers.

- One of a kind

I haven’t come across any other app Etc like it. It has so many features and so much information and the design of this app is perfect. it was the first app I re-downloaded after getting a new phone because of how incredible it is and how much I surprisingly use this app. You will not find another app like it or that could compare. Honestly do yourself a favour and download this app I promise you will not regret it, everyone I have shown it to has been in complete awe of it and asked for the name so they too could have it for themselves

- Impressive skywatch app

This is a great app especially for one that’s free. I read someone else’s review of it recommending it and downloaded it off of that and I was glad I did. It shows planets, stars, constellations, satellites etc in real time even when on airplane mode. Very handy just to point the phone in front of you and it shows what’s there. It shows the trajectory of satellites and the space station and you can just tap the satellite, planet etc and it brings up information on it..amazing! Totally recommend this app to everyone to have on their phone!

- Night sky 2.0

I have been having a great time stargazing. I saw Sirius A in the night sky and most importantly I even saw the Orion constellation! This holidays I might be going to Coonabarabran. If you didn't know Coonabarabran is a place in Australia and in Coonabarabran you can see lots of stars and you can see the Milky Way in the night sky. Your able to see the milky way and lots of stars in the night sky of Coonabarabran because there is no pollution there.

- Awesome app just wish it was a once off purchase

Easily one of if not the best app for stargazing on ios. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is like so many other apps the devs have gone with the subscription model for the premium version. I would happily buy premium if it was a once off payment but I don't want another subscription to pay for. On that it would be great to disable the constant prompts to upgrade aswell, can get a bit annoying when using the app.

- Mesmerising.!.

This app found its way to my phone, for that I am thankful.. it allows yourself to put things into a contextual form. The depth of knowledge as to the prior works of man that have pushed limits beyond what I can fathom.. Insight into what is relevant to the current (now) of what you only need to know to have normal.. This app is saying - It’s not your ability to ascertain relevance, it’s the ability to communicate it effectively..

- Absolutely fantabulous

This is by far THE BEST educational app I’ve ever had, Pros: - it has amazing premium pack. - it does NOT force you to go premium by playing ad videos every time you touch the screen. - 1 month free trail premium - fully adjustable/customisable according to personal preferences. - ABILITY TO VIEW THE SKY FROM MOON. - real and semi animated sky options to choose. - even the full free version is fantastic with all of the features mentioned above. ——————- Cons: - the setting is a bit complicated Ps, setting complication might be because of my English knowledge as it’s my second language Overall I’m absolutely happy with this app, and really really hope that I could upgrade to premium but unfortunately I just can’t do it at the moment.

- My favorite app

Night Sky is my favorite app by far. It’s the only app I pay for. I’ve been using it for almost three years now and it’s the only app I can see or understand the universe around me with. It has more features than I know what to do with. I mostly use it to identify, and learn about objects in the night sky.

- A literally glowing app! ✨

I would highly recommend this to all keen and budding astronomers and astrologists. It has perfect an accurate graphics and can take you on a journey into deep space without you even leaving you home! You can use the AR filter to bring outer space to your own home! Thanks for this amazing app!

- Great app

It’s a great app with all these amazing features and information at the palm of your hand. I have one issue though, when I want to view planets or stars in AR mode, sometimes the app suddenly shuts off. Then I go back in and start all over again and the same thing happens. Is there a fix to it?

- Fantastic

I’ve only played around with this for a little while but I can instantly tell this is amazing, it really blew my mind about how small we are, just little unimportant life forms on a floating rock. We will never do anything important with our lives because if we die, if earth is destroyed it won’t matter nothing matters life is meaningless.

- One word AWESOME..!!!

All the geeks and astronomy bug bitten people out there this is the best app to checkout literally everything in our skies..whether it may be a planet a constellation, nebulae or say man made satellites nothing is hidden from night sky’s radar. And also the added camera/photography feature is awesome. Definitely 5 stars to this one.

- It is ok

The app is amazing there are many features to the app. Totally amazing. But there is a problem. Whenever I want it to use my camera and see the sky that is in front of me, the app glitches and kicks me out. And it happens every time when I try to do that. So yeah. Overall the app is amazing with many cool features to explore. And includes a lot of information about any planet.

- Music of the Spheres

This App is remarkable in its responsiveness to compass points, accuracy regarding position of celestial entities, and the identification of constellations with beautiful graphics. The Music of the Spheres which accompanies the App is also extraordinary and has a meditative quality, which heightens the sense of awe in viewing the Cosmos from this perspective.

- Stop with the ads already

I get it. You want us to pay for the subscription. Perhaps it unseemly to be too critical of a free app and I understand a certain level of promotion in any free app. But to have the subscription pop-up take over the app half a dozen times in the four minutes I was using it was quite ridiculous (including every time I opened it). Definitely won’t be upgrading and indeed will find another app to do what I was using this one for.

- Absolutely amazing

There are many night sky navigation apps out there but this one is by far the best. The amount of features on it is outstanding and they aren’t blocked by a payed subscription. This app has helped me countless times with my stargazing and when the conditions are best. 5/5

- Under The Outback Sky

When camping as we do frequently in the remote Mallee region of southern Australia, my friends are always keen to use this tremendous app to identify components of the universe, under an amazingly and usually clear night sky.

- Our galaxy is amazing 🤩

It an good app to star 🌟 gaze but it’s nothing like how I thought it was going to be. I’ve had it before and I loved it but I restarted my phone so it got deleted I think that it was updated and changed but to be honest there’s to many star 💫 that no one knows about and does not want to know about

- Night sky X failure to live up to its hype.

Down loaded the app. Nice colourful picture. Nowhere to set it up to suit your location. At 19:30 it set the sun with all planets in the wrong location. Unable to follow the sky with the phone. Unable to align with compass direction, eg True North to calibrate. Screen swirls around a central point as you move. I tried it a few years back as well before it was so colourful. Deleted it then and will do the same now.

- subscription pop up thing is annoying

the app is really good but there 1 thing about it that makes me not wanna use it. whenever i zoom in on a planet or up in the sky or even just looking around the stupid pop up subscription thing always comes up and it’s SOO ANNOYING but great app

- Amazing

It’s awesome to have the ability to point your phone up at the sky and see all the constellations and I was surprised by how many constellations there actually where. By far one of my favorite apps ever

- Let down

Always wanted an app like this and thought this was it. It’s daytime though I’m still able to see the position of the constellations. Though when I pointed my phone at the sun it didn't show up. I scrolled around looking for it and it showed the sun in a different position. If the suns position is incorrect so is the rest of the app.

- Pls add a search bar

Can you guys add a Search Bar? So that if we need to find any moons, galaxies, satellites, planets and many other stuff we can find it with ease. Y’know, so we don’t have to look around for an hour to find what we are looking for.

- Epic

This stargazing app is so epic! I like how you developers are so active fixing every bug that I come across! Also reading about the planets and moons really surprised me! Keep up the good work!

- Cannot purchase

Tried 8 times to purchase this app. Every time it says cannot purchase because I am not connected to the Internet. Tried wi-fi, 4G, force quit the app, restarted phone. Nothing worked. Every time the same message. Tried Safari and other apps that use the Internet and they all work fine. The problem is not on my end it is on their end. Complete waste of time. What a joke.

- Restore purchases broken?

I thought I had purchased this app a few years ago so I tried to restore purchases after I had to reset my phone, but it just sits on a loading icon and never does anything.

- Learn about space

It makes people learn where everything

- Not too bright

I thought the app was too complicated. My kids wanted to use it for a science project and the names of stars were no where what they thought they were. For instance we are in Melbourne and the kids wanted to find the Southern Cross but your app does not list it as this so we fiddle faddled trying to find it. I had to firstly find Orion and go from there. Yeah I guess you need to be a fully fledged astronomer to use it.

- This App is fantastic and ideal for beginner star gazers.

Wether Your an amateur or an expert, you should download this to your iPhone or iPad. Extremely accurate. 10/10in my personal opinion.

- App has become more sophisticated

App not as intuitive as it used to be, but then has become more powerful. I will spend some time learning it.

- Night Sky

This app now works well after another phone reboot! Thanks for giving me the tip to reboot. A wonderful app to use and the notifications of various events is very timely!

- Amazing! Using it for school studies and projects.

This is such an amazing app like, honestly! It’s so accurate that I’ve been getting A+’s for every space project yet! Again, outstanding detail xx

- Thank you this is such a good app

I was using my telescope to stargaze but I wanted to learn more of it so I found Night Sky it is so helpful and educational. Thank you!

- Really boring

It looked way better on the AppStore it’s soooooooo boring and I also thought that you could trace the stars and it is not addictive at all. I got an email saying that they’re sorry and I say it’s no problem but it definitely looks better on App Store I am not sure if I just don’t like it because I am bad at it but definitely not for me.

- Ramadan offer

I like this app and thinking about upgrading to the premium version. I see a “Ramadan” 50% off offer, but it appears to be the same price as the full annual subscription?

- Mind blowing ... app worth having

This app feeds into curiosity and connects with the real world... I mean vast space in which we all are. Thank you for making this app. And keep building on it.

- Excellent App!

As an amateur astronomer, I would recommend this App to any planet/star/galaxy gazer. The information catalogue is phenomenal, just click an object, then click i.

- Fantastic

This is such an amazing app The whole family have now got it and we go out and watch for different nightly events Outstanding

- We’re all star dust. Looking up at our past in light years

I think this app is absolutely fantastic I love it

- Fantastic !

There is simply no better way to get kids interested in the stars and constellations above ( and below ) us ! Keep up the great work !

- The Saucepan on your heads!

I bought Night Sky Pro, in good faith. It no longer works. Know it seems you want an annual fee for the app. No. I would like what I paid for please. How do you decide to just reclaim something that has been paid for? For shame. Whoever your bean counter is, I hope their car stops working and must pay an annual fee to look at sitting in their garage.

- Probably just the same

I’d rather have a car to go to the store

- App is great, but… I need my money back!

I paid for this years ago, a significant premium. However you have now changed to a subscription charging model and asking me to subscribe to continue. Restore purchases does not work! Either pay my money back or allow me full access.

- Superb!

I first downloaded this in 2013 and it was a wonder even then. It has continued to improve and is a delight to use.

- Perspective

Thanks for all your work on this app, let’s you see how small we are and appreciate what we have.

- Lucas

Honestly I think that this is a great way to show the Univers just by looking at your phone

- I would be seeing (no) stars without you!

Love the app! There’s so much learning about the planets, starts and galaxies. The UI/X is great too!

- Love it

So much info and my kids particularly love using it to identify bright objects in the sky. Minor quibble: it crashed when I tried to share an event on twitter.

- Star gazing

So cool to see so many sculptures, satellites and planets! It's very beautiful!

- Great App

Never knew my way around the biggest parts of my own neighborhood. Now I have a roadmap and I’m finding my way around a little. Jupiter is a real thing now. My world is so much bigger. I now know what I’m looking at in a way I never saw before. Very cool. Very empowering. The kids love it so much too.

- It used to be a fine app

When I first purchased Night Sky, it worked really well, but since then, there are several "Premium" features and adverts for them. In addition, the app is clunky now and difficult to calibrate because I need to do so every time I use the app.

- Amazing

Astounded me

- NightSky

Excellent App that should be on the perquisite list in every school system in the country. A very creative learning tool that initiates interest in science and space and provides a platform for young learners to broaden their interests in these areas.



- Scam app

Did not authorize being charged for this app. When i cancelled the subscription, i was charged anyway. Total scam.

- Rip off alert

Do not buy this app, I payed for it around 5 years ago. It was a one time purchase. Now they started charging me 2.79 a month for it out of left field, not even sure how they are even doing this because I didn’t agree to anything. They should be sued.

- It’s cool but you have to pay eventually

It’s a good app but you have to pay an arm + 1 Leg. it’s too expensive

- Crashes

Used to work, quite well and enjoyed it while it did. It crashes immediately after opening since upgrade. Tried deleting and re-installing, same result unfortunately

- Closing all the time on my iPad

Simply can’t use the app. Had the app as a sky reference. I can’t spot a comet or constellation and try to align that the app shuts off. Pointless.

- Hmmmm...

Excited to learn that there was an app available and once I downloaded it wanted money and now I am going to delete. Too complicated.

- Not what I was hopping for ☹️🙁

I really like to see the cosmos but when ever I touch something it makes it show me where you have to pay, and I just want to play not pay ok ☹️☹️☹️

- Too complicated.

Liked the old version. Place your iPad in the sky and everything is labeled. Now there is so much to decipher I would rather not use the app

- Used 9.7mb of cellular data in the background

Great app but in the last 5 days it’s used 9.7 mb of cellular data when I’ve not even opened the app. I’ve obviously turned the cellular access off for the app but why is it even doing that? I also do not agree with a monthly/annual subscription model for nothing extra, price gouging customers shows greed and lack of respect. You’d also be advised to read icandy privacy and data use policy, available below.

- Night Sky

I pretty cool

- Frustrated

I haven’t had this app downloaded to my device or utilized its functions in ages but still receive emails that I’m being charged for its services. How can I unsubscribe or be reimbursed (which I’m guessing isn’t going to happen)?

- Harassment

I got the « free trial » after 2 days I deleted the app but after a month it doesn’t stop sending me notifications to pay BUT I DONT USE IT AND I DONT HAVE IT!! Someone can do something for it thanksss

- True Horror

This app is great at showing the terrifying horror of what starlink is doing to the night sky. RIP astronomy, hello Kessler Syndrome

- Used to be great

this app used to be great, it had great functionality and the price was justified in my opinion, i paid for the app but now it has become a subscription service that i’m not willing to pay for. the features i used to have access too that i paid for have been put behind a new paywall. i should have been grandfathered in but i was not, instead what i paid for has been taken away and become unusable.

- Mesmerizing

Such a beautiful app. The graphics are clear and the interface is smooth. Sometimes there's nice little background music, it sounds very calming. Thank you developers!

- Real!

This !!! It depicts the constellation as you pass thru. I love it!

- So fun!

This all is so fun and easy to use! I wanted to be able to identify more constellations and this has helped so much!


So interesting

- Dan

This is a Great app.

- Rip off

From one of the greatest apps I have ever owned, now it is version "X" and tries to trick me into spending $36.xx for an annual subscription with no explanation of any change, upgrade in service or any improvement whatsoeverr! WYF

- Love it!!

This app is amazing!! I’m studying space at school right now and this helps me with my projects and papers. Thank you for creating this!!


I massively into astronomy. I have a 165mm refraction telescope but this app makes it a breeze to use. So detailed and the features are incredible. Going to the cottage is one of my favourite things to do now.

- Complete suite

Great Single view of different sphere of scientific data all in one and customisable

- Okay

Laggy, and crashes a lot, but really detailed!

- 🔱Thank you 🔱

- Broke after I updated

This app was fantastic when I first downloaded it, but unfortunately after the latest update it’s completely broken. I used to be able to look all around me, including upwards with the app in order to see the sky everywhere. Now it only lets me pan side to side. This means that if anything is slightly higher up I cannot see it on the screen by tilting it. Sure, I can drag with my fingers to adjust the view on screen, but when I do that, it makes it impossible to tell if I’m actually looking at the right area since I can’t just aim there anymore. It has also become incredibly laggy and keeps freezing. It skips across the screen or just doesn’t even do anything at all. It’s really frustrating and the app is unusable now. I have tried deleting and redownloading as well but it did not help

- Night Sky

Love this app!!

- I love this app

A fantastic app. It makes exploring the night sky easy. I especially enjoy sharing this with my young grandchildren.

- They want more of my money?

My earlier complaint is below. My current concern is that it rarely aligns properly with the sky so it takes a lot of finagling to figure out where we are. The earlier complaint remains viable. I paid them for an app and then they stopped supporting it and it does not work. “Pro” Goes blank after the startup screen. >> I paid to get the Pro version a while back. Now it won’t open. Night Sky 2 opens but a pop up keeps telling me to upgrade. I go to App Store and try to reinstall Pro only to find that it’s now a subscription service only. That’s bad business and annoying. Disable the app to force us to buy a sub?! Hey guys updates anyone? I still can’t use the pro but the older versions work.

- From the Misty Islands

To see beyond the clouds is fantastic

- Great teaching tool!!!

Excellent to help students learn constellations and distinguish man made objects from naturally occurring stellar bodies.


Best app no ads I definitely recommend this even for kids

- Was ok

Just re download and all it does is crash takes about a minute to move as we point in all directions and fail and crashes not pleased and not going to pay again for the services that i paid in past wont recognize my email or past payments that i paid in full a few yrs ago fix the issues

- Five stars

This game is so cool it gives you so much stars are in space information even constellations you’ll love it it’s so interesting to draw so many facts about space


Like no cap I don’t even need to explain this is perfect 😍

- Lol


- Review

Can’t read the writing

- Crashes

3 crashes in about 45 seconds

- Not as much languages as advertised

As told at the header

- Great little app

I use it periodically to see the night sky. It’s nice to have when you live in the city where you don’t see many stars.

- Location/map

Great app in general but I have a big problem with it. Please, make it possible to use Google Maps on Apple device and let the users choose which map they want to use. Apple maps is so inaccurate it shows I am 2.5km away from my actual location. It is tiring to rewrite my coordinates manually all the time. Thank you

- Crashes

Whenever I open it after like 10 seconds it crashes I’m on iPhone 7 it has the latest version aka 14.6 at the time I’m writing this, it should work perfectly fine but it doesn’t disappointed.

- It’s not working properly and too slow

It’s not working properly and too slow, I hope they fix the issue ASAP as I loved it in the beginning

- Interesting, but needs fixes

Using touch to move is about 2-3x as sensitive as it should be. Also, they paywall is relatively high compared to other apps with more polish

@ImAnuraagSharma Cities do be bad for night-sky photography 😔

My last tweet of the year. The Night-sky on December 30 🌌. I mapped some key features visible in this wide field of view capture. Also included a close up of Mars (132M km) and Uranus (3B km). I hope you like these photographs and I wish you a happy new year!


We talked about; how you celebrate the new year? I'm in home, you said. I'm under the night-sky, I said. I never know you've been my home after that. But you are warm, the warmest place I ever had. Yes, you are.

To be grateful *for* a thing necessarily requires us to be grateful *to* a thing. Even if our gratefulness is for the night-sky and is directed to the universe the mere fact that we have made an act of gratitude means we are rapt out of our Self for the time of our gratefulness.


Here are some fun night-sky facts for early January.

@MrRosentretter If by horny you mean wholesome horny then I'll just take him out on a nice stroll, come home, Cook up a nice meal, probably put something to watch on and then afterwards look up at the star filled night-sky and talk about little things that interest us

The New Yorker

Einstein had what might be called a night-sky theology, a sense of the awesomeness of the universe that even atheists and materialists feel when they gaze up at the Milky Way.

Kairi: My chances to the trash? Are you crazy? Some call your writing rad, but to me it's straight up LAZY! My arc is barely starting, greatness awaits, you see? Meanwhile you've been downgraded to a night-sky WANNABEEEE!

@RhiFionn @WilsonsWorld The moonrise was amazing tonight in central NC! Alas, my iPhone doesn't take good night-sky pictures. I may get myself a real camera.

This image was shot about this time of year in 2017 while I was leading a private photo tour for Aurora and night-sky photography. We started in Fairbanks for several nights, then down to Talkeetna and over to the Sheep Mountain area. This image was shot at 3 am.


i could look at the night-sky for hours

@squorch They should wear night-sky patterned space camo, like a little kid’s pajamas

Lonelines without art is like the night-sky without stars.

I want a night-sky/star projector for my ceiling so bad 😭
