One too many notifications encouraging you to buy addons or companion apps. Look elsewhere or be prepared to disable notifications Response: keep the notifications to star events and keep the ads in the news section. The fact i have notifications enabled for an app should be considered a prized amount of trust. Violate that trust, app is deleted and i tell ten friends who tell ten more friends.
It’s definitely flash year, I like it. The music is good constellations show up well and the AR is really cool to use. But I do not like or you cannot add events to your calendar do you use to with the previous version
The imagery won't stop rotating. Changing the date manually is extremely difficult to do. The ads are very annoying too. Uninstalled
My 4 year old son and I love this app. He loves space more than I do. We were using this app a few days ago and he asked to see Ganymede and Callisto (by name, Jupiter is his favorite). It's very difficult to zoom into the moons of Jupiter. I purchased all the additional content, and the moons were still not there. Could those be added (at least the ones we have imagery for) This app, if you force touch the app icon, will show you stargazing conditions. Mine shows the conditions are currently poor, yet the app sends me notifications of things to go check out. Why does it do this? It’s more like HA HA, look what you’re missing instead of being informational.
This is better then Telescope. Works indoors. Clouds, Ha Ha, no problem. See Last years Sky! I Love it 🥰 244 Jake
Nice app, I’m glad I bought this one. I recommend it...
It is A very amazing app if you love astronomy! I have one thing to say though, It needs Ceres the Dwarf Planet and now I can’t research it that well!
It’s not worth the money, it makes u pay more when u open the app just for the AR, get sky guide .. it’s the same price and better because it has many more things like articles and facts about super earths and other really legit cool stuff .
My location is not available!
Update 3/10/19: The response to me was vague “support team should contact you soon”. Not will but should. Well it has been over 2 weeks now not a word. Folks pay for this app, I did. What is going on. Why no word from support. Why is it still not ipdating?!? The app is good until now. I wrote support and heard nothing. The recent update will not update. Because I paid for this and have gotten no response from support I am giving it a low rating. If they will respond I will update. At this point: Buyer beware! I want to add I wrote support a few Days ago at their suggested Url and got no response which triggered this negative review. Update: Though they never did contact me directly, they did fix the app so that the update now updates. Thus the increase in rating.
Pretty amazing, though i would like the option to upscale the font size of the stars when viewing. I can zoom to a part of sky to clarify the objects, but names of stars auto shrink / scale small again, gah my eyes need a magnifier on my iphone6. And. Can we get some alternative star names mode- eg australian indigenous stories.. eg where is the emu? - and relate that to scientific names for comparison. Also there are common colloquial names that would also help... ‘the pointers’ the ‘southern cross’.... crux... for beginners learning ... thanks for the great work so far.
I love the app awesome features but for some reason it’s been draining my iPhone X battery. The only thing the app is running is the widget ?
It’s design beauty is unparalleled by any other astronomy app. Easy layout and a real pleasure to use. Definitely one of the best apps available. Thanks for putting so much effort into design and features! It would be great to see in future updates an equatorial grid to assist with using a telescope. Once again you guys are awesome!
Why does it take long to load??? I haven’t even had a chance to get into the app I’ve been waiting for over an hour for it to load I’m wondering if it’s an update or data loading can you please check the servers to see if it’s either my phone or the app loading I’ll give it four stars because it looks like a good app but I just can’t load into it.
The app is ok. However when I bought the paid version on the App Store. It still comes up as the free version.
Charged again, 10 days after initial purchase
I absolutely love this app & use it all of the time... my 8 yr old daughter loves it too!!
Love it! Anywhere in the world i go i use this app! Such a nice peak into the Cosmos around us :)
God bless you forever❤️🌞🌈🚀🛰️🛸🦋❤️
I purchased this app five hrs ago now all I get is a blank screen and the music please explain
Great design. Everything in the sky covered in this app. No need for any others. The free version covers everything so nicely without any frustrating in app purchase restrictions. I use this app and am hooked so i got the full version. I suggest you do the same before they realise that this app should cost more. No 1 astronomy app
When I got this app it was app of the week and was free ,so I thinking it looked quite interesting downloaded it. I really liked it and decided to buy the all in one bundle . Everything downloaded perfectly except deep sky objects which instead of saying installed or the download percent it just said extract thus the all in one bundle said extracting as well . It had been like that for about twelve hours and now I have deleted the app and am reinstalling it now but can someone please tell me what extract means or if I'll get the money spent on it back .
Only getting a star because I can't give none
Best astronomy app I've used. 5 stars
Marvellous, could not figure out the photo feature though. Wonderfully simple. Would love to add or switch to other sky objects in the same easy, impairedfriendly way.
Very informative. A great app. Pity about the light pollution in our skies 😩
Love the detailed graphics in the new Mars in-app add-on. Really great addition to the app.
