I’m really glad I purchased this app with the supermassive upgrade! I really like the HD images of the deep sky objects. On that subject, please add more of the images in the future, and on the planets maybe add more of the moons and minor bodies. Exoplanets would be great too! Thank you and I look forward to any future updates!
This is the best. All the other ones have too many ads. Thank you for this app!
It’s perfect except the AR/camera mode is so off that it’s worthless. I was hoping I could use it to at least roughly point a telescope but it’s just not even close to where you point
The best app I own.
The Compass or location isn’t working right. I look east and it says I’m looking west. Not sure what’s going on. And yes my setting for location is turned on. Your still the best app!!!
You show all the clutter about mythology, why not a choice of showing current LST and coordinates for the brightest or famous objects? (User selectable) More useful!
Love this app, as I use it to aid in photography, but one of the main reasons I downloaded the app was for the “Dark sky Finder” which is no where to be found in the app. I have pressed every button and every gesture and still have not found it. Help? Update: Found it! There should be a button on the menu specifically for dark sky finder.
Fantastic app ! Must have for anyone that loves the night sky ! Sometimes gets off alignment but apart from that pretty flawless !
Sky Guide is no doubt one of the most amazing applications in the App Store. The design is simple but the content is complex as can be. Ranging from the stars to the constellations to whatever phenomenon presents itself upon the skies the app does a remarkable job of bringing us closer to the heavens. The app not only does that but provides news articles on astronomy related subjects as well as forecasts for your local area. Why not as the weather is tied to what we see above. Preferences can be set for notifications of upcoming events so those invested will never miss a thing. The app is easy to use for people of all ages and works to inspire young people to take note of what lies beyond our own horizons.
Love this '!
