Amazing!!!

This app has surely been a pleasure to have, for it has features that are truly amazing, from the name of a star to the name of constellations, from the information of the Sun to information of far away celestial bodies. This app has made everyday star gazing a simple task; there are barely any flaws within the application. Please update regularly, so that the app can be so much better: I can’t find any common flaw, therefore I can’t help with making the app more satisfying. Thank you!

Doesn’t Work and Scammy Subscription

1
After paying for the APP, when first run on iPhone and without any action on my part, it immediately and automatically prompted me to pay for the SUBSCRIPTION by double clicking the side button to pay. This is shady practice. After being underwhelmed by the iPhone version which didn’t properly locate my position, I tried it on the iPad where it didn’t properly locate my position and didn’t rotate the sky at all, regardless of toggling the compass on or off. Waste of money.

I effing love this app!

I’ve owned this app for many years now and I have to say, this app has been absolutely instrumental in my perceptual “awakening” of this vast universe we live in. To even begin contemplating it’s size and magnificence is both mesmerizing and mind-numbing. I use many popular astronomy apps but this one gets the most use for its informational presentation and easy-to-approach UI. I continue to pay for the annual Supermassive subscription because the detail and depth is so stunning and in my opinion, completely worth it. Everyone I show it to - it takes their breath away. I know some don’t like background music in their apps but you’ll find a great non-repetitive background soundtrack in this app, if you’re into that sort of thing (I definitely am). My only wish is that they would “redden” the keyboard during a search with Night Vision enabled, and if they could audibly speak the information that they’ve curated into this app regarding all the objects we can see in our universe, because it’s nice to observe the object as you’re learning about it. Otherwise, this app is superb. Great job to the developers of Sky Guide!

Paid for the full app before

I have paid for the app before, and now I switched to a new phone with the same account it says I have to pay monthly membership fee after the trial, and when I press restore purchase It fails and nothing comes up. Please give me what I paid for and I will give 5 stars.
