This is one of the best apps I’ve ever downloaded. How it merges comprehensive science, astronomy, design, myth, and storytelling is so beautiful and informative. This app has taught me so much and inspires hope by reminding me of the vastness and majesty of space. I will never stop using this app, it just has so much to offer.

Not good at all

Not good anymore, use to love it but then found problems right away, 1: whenever you click on a really distant star it won’t show the name and that white circle around the distant star only supports close stars 2: the supermassive upgrade is lame because skyview *not free* presents you all the planets in very big forms and stuff NASA launched but I never found anything that NASA launched on sky guide for even cheaper 3: Overpriced, for not a really good app it just doesn’t show a lot of things and I just figured this out, they use the really distant stars that you can’t even click for design making you think it’s real

Compass not working

Loved this app for years, however recently have problems in that compass doesn’t match a real compass. So I will see the moon and point iPad at the moon, and something else pops up on the app. It’s a humbug.

Doesn’t support family sharing unlike advertised

The app description says that it supports family sharing. And I have family sharing enabled and I have purchased this app. But when I try to install on my spouse’s phone we are charged full price! Such a farce.
