I love being able to just point and identify!
My son show me this years ago it is the best and probably one of the only apps I ever use loves this
I just found out that you can take screenshots. This is awesome 🤩. I use the app at night to see which bright objects are planets or stars.
Our heavens so full and we have only understood of what we know thru a lens and not actually exploration! It’s truly beautiful Gods creation! On the other hand it’s deplorable how man can clutter and polite even the heavens! Can’t wait for God to take it back!!
I have to say this app is just delightful. I can’t say enough good about it. All my life I have looked at the heavens. Last night I looked at Mars and knew it was Mars. I wished there was a 10 Star review because it is EXCELLENT !
I LOVE this app I also love outer space!!
Free one I had last year worked fine and then it stopped so I bought the app it doesn’t do anything it’s frozen up I’m looking for the refund button
So, I’ve used the free app for years. I’ve always enjoyed it quite a bit. Figured I’d go ahead and buy this version and it was freaking awesome, for about two days. The information is great, it’s very informative and fun to use if it works. It quit working, I’ve recalibrated my internal compass numerous times, and skyview just doesn’t register it. The compass works fine for things like Maps, my other AR/VR games. I emailed the company and never got a reply. If you can get it to work, it’s amazing. But it’s a bummer when it doesn’t. 😒😒
I upgraded to the paid app to go beyond the fun of just identifying planets and some space objects. However, there were no instructions on how to use family sharing; and no videos or manuals on how to use the features of either of the bundled apps. The Satellites app was especially confusing. Furthermore, my email requesting help was not answered. An inexpensive app that is unusable is still a waste of money.
