I love,love,love this app!!! So much to learn and it is visually beautiful! I love our place in the solar system and it is really cool to be able to view it this way! Thank you so much!

I really love the app

I've liked this app from the first day I purchased. It also works well with the meteor app that I use. It has directional GPS issues though, sometimes. North is shown way off course when this happens and can’t lock in on north.

So accurate.

Sky guide is so easy to learn and use. It’s always accurate when I need to make perfect alignment for night photography. It’s what I teach in my workshops.

Snow Moon

My world kind of flipped on its head this past new year. Generally like to look out at the city at night but I started staring at the stars a little more leading up to the snow moon. It was cloudy on the 8th but I still took a midnight hike in a few hills behind my city. The moon made a few winks but the clouds kind of disappointed my hope & blacked out the stars. Half-gave up until I laid down flat on my back and tested this app real quick. I’ve tinkered with a few AR star gazing apps a few years ago but those apps never really reached beyond the screen. Tech didn’t quite do the stars justice in the past. Tech could probably still do more for educationally brilliant apps like these but, at the very least, it does well with the stars. I appreciate the beauty. I haven’t the taken the time to appreciate it and its near infinite astrophysical wonders as much as I should — experience that night made my new appreciation starkly apparent. For what it’s worth, thanks. Reminders in moments like those bring genuine feelings of awesome peace. *** Physics, yo. Carry’s love. ***

So cool!

This app is amazing!!! You can go outside and find constellations and plants so easily! It’s cool to see what is on the other side of the earth or what is out during the day. I love the stars and this is truly one of my favorite apps!!!

Great App

Very informative app and the developers even respond to questions. It identifies several of the satellites, yes they aren’t stars but they are interesting since we all rely on them. Ps, I love the night sky.
