I have the full version and thought it would be nice to have the distance of the individual stars, galaxies, nebulae and everything else in with the descriptions. Pretty cool that galaxies and other formations are included. Be nice to see Starlink added as well as new stuff updated from the James Webb Telescope. Crazy how much space junk this picks up too
This app is SO COOL!!! My dad and I fell in love with this app immediately! It is so accurate as well! 10/10, definitely recommended. W app😃
it stopped working for me? i’ve had this for years now . super sad.
Incredible app, but it could use more customization options for what you’re seeing. I would like to be able to turn planets into points of light in the AR mode. I would like to be able to disable planets or stars entirely, and just look for one or the other I would like to be able to just enable man-made bodies or disable them entirely with some additional options. This would be a truly must have app.
It’s very fun to use this app while camping! We go out in the middle of nowhere and can see so many stars. It’s fun to use this to figure out what we are seeing! It has helped many times! Currently using it while camping and used it to verify Venus!
I mostly love this app, but much of the time I want to just watch the sky without the Big Dipper, Sagittarius, etc. appearing in starkly drawn outlines dominating the sky, but there’s no way to turn that off. Or if there is, it’s buried deep, because I looked for a while and couldn’t find it. And there’s no way in the app to contact the developers for assistance or feedback. Incredibly basic stuff.
I like this app and share it with many of my friends. It is slightly off when pointing my phone camera at a planet or moon. I can't seem to remedy this but it's not too bad.
i never write reviews but this app is on my mind 25/8. the 3 dollars i spent on it we’re worth it. truly outstanding and obsessive app. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
If you have a love for the stars, planets, nebulas, and satellites this app is for you. I've used it in many states across the us. (unfortunately not outside us) It's accurate and great for showing the night sky to interested newcomers. Doug
I love the night sky! This app has enhanced my life so much, I can’t say enough good things. I use it all the time.
