When I downloaded the full version of this app it was very fun and I like the facts it shows you of all the planets about how far they are and how many moons each one has. I can’t wait to see future updates on this app
I have an iPhone 8 on IOS 14 and the calibration feature has completely stopped working. It won’t even let me try manually. 1 star until this bug is fixed.
I’ve really enjoyed using this app. It’s relatively simple and educational.
Best space app ever worth it!
It would be cool to be able zoom out and see earth’s (my) location, all of the other planets, and the direction of orbit- from northern or Southern Hemisphere. This would give a sense of location and orientation as the planets move over time.
We are loving using this app as a family.
I would have rated it 5 stars but something’s gone wrong. Used the app for the first time in a couple of weeks and found it frozen with a North view of the sky no matter which way I faced, calibrated compass automatically or manually. Deleted SkyView Lite and paid for regular SkyView and still had the same issue. Would really love to have this working right again.
...But a friend showed me and my fam this app, and it is such a source of wonder. I check it daily when I rise & see what beautiful celestial body is shining down from the heavens above. Really filled me with an even greater sense of respect for Creation & deeper desire to know God. A great blessing for my kids especially, who have now been insisting on a telescope and a visit to an observatory. Couple that with their new desire to take astronomy classes, & it is a accurate to say that this app is WORTH IT. Thank you to the developers for an excellent product.
Was stuck and not working, but something changed and it is back to normal.
I found this app a couple of years ago and I love it. When going camping and when I have WiFi. It is so much fun to be out in the wilderness camping and no lights to use this app is Awesome. So much information
