Cool appVery cool app. Shows a 360 degree view so if you cover up your camera so the screen is black, even during the daytime or wherever you are you can see where things are, even stuff on the other side of the planet or below the horizon etc. As some others have said in these reviews you can see the stars even when you point at the floor, so it’s good in that you can know ok I got about an hour or two before Saturn or the moon or whatever will be viewable. Only thing I’d change is make access to the display settings a little quicker but it’s fine as it is, it’s only one extra step deeper into the menu so not a big deal. Clear Skies!.Version: 3.6.1

AstoundingFantastic value for money (what money)?.Version: 1.3.1

Love itThis app helped me a lot to find planets, stars and much more. But the one thing I wish is that you could find voyager 1 and 2. Also if you want the ultimate combo get ISS detector because sometimes the app doesn’t tell you about it. Over all I love this app.Version: 3.6.1

FantasticGreat app -well worth it. Finally got a really clear night and it worked beautifully!.Version: 1.3.1

Cosmic BinocularsAn fantastic amazing app. Especially for young children. After learning about the planets, my daughter was dismayed that they weren’t lighting up the sky at night in real life. She felt better after I pointed out Mars, Jupiter & Saturn (or as she also knows them as Nergal, Marduk & Ninurta) with the naked eye. But this app brought it to another level. She understands the planets are far away and that this app is like a pair of cosmic binoculars. Her only disappointment now is not being able to see the dwarf planets Ceres, Makemake, Haumea & Eris. Please add in future versions..Version: 3.6.1

MrOutstanding value..Version: 1.3.1

A Universe of Stars from Me.I like to say a BIG deal "THANK YOU" to the team for making this wonderful Space App. It has helped me to keep my mind going from my Chronic Depression. There is nothing more wonderful than to tour the Cosmos from ones own Living Room. A hand held Planetarium. So. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you..Version: 3.5.1

Incredible!I love this app! Highly recommend it. 5 stars..Version: 3.5.1

Great App for BeginnersThis app is just out of this world “Pardon the Pun” it’s great for the beginner who is just starting out on this great hobby and it’s backed up with all the information you need and the background music gives you the feeling of being amongst the stars and planets, it’s great to have all this information at your fingertips and the beauty of it is you don’t have to go out in the cold to view it. On here you don’t get any cloudy nights.Version: 3.6

Novel but still can be improvedGenerally speaking it’s a great app, but please let the app tell me how far the star I’m watching at is from me. Only knowing the name and location of the star isn’t very intuitive. But knowing the distance between me and the star (and each star on the sky) would give me a much more intuitive of their position. Also, knowing the distance also allows me to know how many years the light traveled to from there to my eye, isn’t it much more romantic! Please add this feature plz!!!.Version: 3.6

IPhone 7plusI find this great on the iPhone, with none of the problems mentioned by the IPad user. Love how you don’t even have to go outside to use it..Version: 3.6.1

Enjoyable AppEasy to use and gives the basic info in a simple format. Really convenient for quick answers to “what’s that star there”.Version: 3.6.1

There’s a problem with the SkyView😐“Hello” I’m having a problem with SkyView today, every time I click on the same star then I click on Wikipedia starts to freeze and closes itself it’s so strange, I don’t know why is it closing itself when I click on the same star is just so strange, but I don’t know why but it hasn’t be closing itself before when I just brought the SkyView but it’s so strange🤔? Can you please fix SkyView from freezing and closing so I don’t have so I do not get annoyed with SkyView because otherwise I will delete it and by the way please fix it😊?.Version: 3.5.1

Awesome app!I really LOVE this app! My only complaint, I guess it would be a complaint, is that i don’t have an option anywhere to record and not just take a still photo. It would be SUPER AMAZING if I could take a small clip of Venus actually rotating in space! And record the rocket body pieces that are floating in space! It’s truly amazing to see it, I would LOVE to record it/ video it. Other than that, I think it’s a truly inspiring app for any lover of the stars! I am so thankful to be able to view one of the many awe and wonders of God through this app. Thank you!.Version: 3.5.1

The best app I’ve ever purchasedThis app is fantastic. Everything about it is marvelous I always used to appreciate the sky but this made my love for it grow tremendously. I can now locate which planets are which and the bits and pieces of the constellations in the sky when before the app I would only erroneously guess. The app has two modes. One where you download it for free and the other where you pay something like 1.99. Both versions are fantastic. But if you are willing to put some money into this it’s even better. The sky is the TV of the universe (with God as it’s broadcaster) and it’s important that we pay attention to it. Psalm 19:1 “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”.Version: 3.5.1

FantasticI love this app. It feeds my constant curiosity about what’s out there. Combined with a decent telescope, this app helps with finding certain celestial bodies for viewing as well..Version: 3.6

Awesome AppGreat app, better than all of the paid apps. I’ve been using it for years and use it nearly every night..Version: 3.6.1

Astronomer/Astrologer’s Best Friend!10 STARS!!!! This is one of the most incredible and incredibly simple pieces of technology I’ve ever found!! Hours of entertaining knowledge and fun. Entertain friends or yourself, this tool will keep you busy all night(or day, if you’re bored.) You will be amazed at all of the stuff in the sky!! Stars, of course!!! Planets, rocket bodies, constellations, everything out there!!! Mad props to the makers of this app!! They did it! To use it is as simple as pointing your phone to the sky and reading your screen. Push a planet or a star and info pops up. Give yourself plenty of room to use. It is an acrobatic app once you get into it! Perhaps a VR versions is in the works so you can look hands free. It shows you what’s in the sky where you point it!! 360°, no obstacles. Just the sky on the screen. No wonder it’s called SkyView. A must get!!.Version: 3.6.2

Learned so much more!!I have collected countless books and have had a forever interest in astronomy. Having this app as long as I have, I’ve learned and retained the information I’ve looked at. The music that plays while star gazing is tranquil and beautiful. Even my sons have grown to love looking at the night sky when in the dark expanse of open land at night. My youngest was so excited when he found his favorite animal, not ever realizing there’s a constellation of the giraffe. I tell anyone who is looking for a great app to star gaze with..Version: 3.5.1

Amazing App! One suggestionI really fell in love with SkyView. It makes it so easy to learn about what I'm looking at in the night sky. There's one thing I think could make the app even better: Currently the only way to look at a specific object in the sky through the app is to point and orient your device so it is facing that object, like the camera. But sometimes I would like to search around the sky without waving my phone in crazy directions, like if I'm lying in bed and want to pan over to what's under the horizon. I think it would be great to add a feature that lets you pan across the sky without needing to move your phone, so it is not oriented by the gyroscope. The view can stay at a constant zoom level, but being able to learn the stars without having to always point in that direction would be tremendously more convenient. This could be an option that you can switch on or off to keep the integrity of the original application as well. Please consider. Thanks for a wonderful contribution to the world!.Version: 3.5.1

Relaxing and Soothing Stargazing made easy!!!I love love love the ambient music, it's gentle and quiet enough to enhance the gazing experience. Focus on the constellation or hone in on each star of each constellation and see their trajectory time line. Are used to stargaze as a child and even now as an adult I'm always looking at the sky. I'm staying at my parents house and decided to give this app a try. It's so crazy seeing all your familiar stars and finding out what constellation they belong to. Using SkyView it feels like enhancing my good childhood memories and opening them up to a whole other level to explore <3 .*•.*•*..Version: 3.5.1

Glad I upgraded.This app is so detailed and in-depth. If you’re using the lite version and thinking about upgrading, it’s completely worth it if you love astronomy like I do..Version: 3.6.1

Loose yourself in the wonder of the cosmosI don’t know if I’m an amateur astronomer or what you would call it I am just fascinated with the wonders of the night sky. I heard about this app on a field trip with my daughters school and thought why not give it a try? Amazing and mind blowing are the first two words that come to mind. If you love to learn new things and have even a small interest in what goes on over our head as the world turns then definitely download this app(you will most certainly appreciate it ) and hold your phone up high to take a look at the night sky it is not falling it’s always there and anyone can see it from any where AMAZING.Version: 3.5.1

Excellent Learning ToolA mine of interesting information..Version: 1.3.1

Idea For Future Update?This App Is Amazing. One thing I probably would recommend is the feature of adding galaxies so they can be shown like the planets are, I just think it would help instead of having them look like a little star. but hey who knows 🤷‍♂️.Version: 3.6.1

Great programUsed all the time.Version: 3.5.1

ReviewThis app is great, it has allowed me to learn more about our solar system..Version: 2.1.1

Love itSeriously this is a magnificent App. Show anyone and the first thing they say is WOW..Version: 3.5.1

Best Star Chart. Ever.I've been an amateur astronomer for over 20 years now, and this is decidedly the best star chart I have ever used. The only thing I would even suggest to add, is a Planner function for each evening's night sky. In other words, an option to click an icon inside the app that shows you the top things to see tonight, maybe everything that is Magnitude 5 or brighter for the evening, to help you plan a night of observing and make sure you hit all the best sights for the evening. But this is definitely a great app, very intuitive and informative..Version: 3.5.1

BrilliantThis is a great app that my granddaughters and I look at often Highly recommended..Version: 3.6

Fantastic!It’s thrilling to use this app - very accurate!.Version: 3.6.1

Love this appI have used other apps before but were never happy with them. This app is the best by far! All you need to do is aim it where you want and there is everything I’ve been looking for. Great graphics, lots of info and more options than I know what to do with all in the simplest form. No hunting for what you want. They have done a great job here. Had the SkyView lite and loved it but this is even better. I show it to everyone! Highly recommend this app! I couldn’t be happier! Great job guys!.Version: 3.6.1

Incredible AppThis is my favourite app of all. It makes star and satellite spotting and tracking so easy and so much fun. The app is powerful, easy to use, and very well designed. :-) I really appreciate the great work the app developers have put in to this app..Version: 3.1.1

Pay $1.99 but it was worth it!So yesterday at night I wanted to find mars because that will be day until mars shows up again to its closest in 265 years which I’ll be dead by then. So I didn’t have a telescope so I remember that my teachers had this app and they said it’s really good to see planets and stars, so I bought it and I tried it out and we checked a star that was red with the SkyView app and... It was Mars!!!! That red little star in the sky was mars! We also saw other planets too like Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune but you can’t see it with the naked eye but the app detected it and right beside Neptune was the moon! Except the moon was closer. We didn’t see the moon because the trees were covering it. Thank you for this app! Others who see this must get this app! It’s worth it! it even works in day time too!.Version: 3.5.1

THIS APP IS AWESOME!!!!My phone just met a horrible fate and I went to download this app again thought I was running on the free version, and it was like, “hey dummy you done paid for the full version”. Recently I found out there are morons who think the earth is flat. I bought this app years before I heard of such ignorance. Everyone needs this app. At night there is too much light pollution and I don’t ha e an observatory. This app is amazing. I opened it during the 2018 solar eclipse and this past January during the “total lunar wolf blood lunar eclipse”. I use it to identity constellations in the north and used it to teach me the small and Big Dipper and how to use two points in the Big Dipper to find the pole star. BTW women love it when you can point out stars. It also showed me the convergence between mercury and Jupiter and that was cool..Version: 3.6

Brilliant app 😀Having not made a habit of buying apps I was surprised at the resonable cost, and the swift download. Faultless. Easy to navigate, and great fun whilst being informative. Go get one..Version: 3.5.1

The perfect stargazers tool!I'm new to stargazing - just bought my first scope and this app is the most useful accompaniment I can imagine for any novice astronomer. Couldn't be easier to use. I love it!!!.Version: 1.3.1

Great app, everyone I show it to loves it!It’s great and it’s amazing when your sitting on a lookout up at the sky and you can use it to view everything that you can see in more detail. Have had issues with calibration but hopefully the next update will work it out.Version: 3.6.1

FantasticFor me this is the best app ever, great graphics and great for planning when my son gets his telescope out. Love the background music, it’s cosmic 🙂. Well worth the money.Version: 3.5.1

Star trajectoryLove most everything Would like to be able to edit names and constellation pics for my own use.Version: 3.5.1

Love it!So educational and entertaining!.Version: 3.6.1

AwesomeBest star gazing app out !!!.Version: 3.2

LeeIt was all working brilliantly for months, but all of a sudden it’s got stuck and I don’t know how to unstick it. The screen comes up, the objects are still moving but the camera doesn’t follow the sky it’s stuck on one thing. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling but still stuck Shame.Version: 3.6.1

SkyViewI've had this application for well over a year now, I find it very interesting to use and have shown it to my four-year-old granddaughter who is infatuated by it. I have even shown it to my former spouse since he does have a telescope, don't know if he's actually used it yet to find the constellations, planets and trajectory objects that show up in there also. I am simply amazed at how full our sky is of what we have put up there and left over. You should all take a look this is an amazing app!.Version: 3.5.1

Due for an updateI'd like to see more sat’s added to the list and less space junk. Have a ton of sat’s going overhead that aren't listed (ones i can see with the naked eye). Love the app. Just wanting more :).Version: 3.6

My favouriteWish they updated with star link.Version: 3.6.1

Great!Please update for Webb Telescope!!!.Version: 3.6.2

An Exciting, Interesting APPI’m a retired aerospace engineer and have always looked at the night sky in wonderment. We never had a family camping trip without discussions of the night sky and the amazing beauty of it all. All of us could identify the Big Dipper, Mars and the moon, but everything else was guesswork until we discovered this App. I love sitting on the back deck an simply being able to locate all the planets or that bright star in the eastern sky or the many satellites and space junk that I helped put up there. I am so happy I found this App. Educational and a great way to impress your kids or grandkids with your new found knowledge. Easy to use. I look forward to many nights of enjoyment. Thank you!.Version: 3.5.1

Crazy FunI have had more fun with this app than I can say, and I’m a mom with grown kids. Found out about this app while at the beach. Still enjoying it at home. Night vision filter is helpful. I’ve found Space Station, planets, stars and even space junk aka rocket bodies. Don’t care for sound track. Wish I could set my own. Highly recommend to everyone. My 20 year old wishes he had this as a help to get through his high school astronomy class. GET this app! You won’t be disappointed..Version: 3.5.1

Sky viewThis app is amazing because it shows different constilations and planet, space junk, and even satellites.Version: 3.5.1

Enjoy this AppI use this app all the time when traveling or on vacation. Well worth it had this now since my iPhone 4.Version: 3.6

AMAZING !This app is simply amazing. Works a treat, full of info and is a must have. Get it !.Version: 2.0.0

Brilliant!Great app! Works perfectly~ would love to be able to get notifications for more stars, but otherwise, very good 👍🏻.Version: 3.5.1

Great appIt’s a really good app. It’s very easy to use, but only recently I’ve noticed that the calibration is very off. When I try to set it up manually, it gets completely out of whack whenever I go back into the app. I’m not sure if there is a way to save it or not. That is my only issue. Besides that, it’s wonderful..Version: 3.6.1

That's Mars!Its a super amateur astronomers phone app for identifying whats in the night sky. Some reviews complain rightly that the auto compass calibration is poor but this is simply resolved using settings /calibration /manual, point at an obvious object like the moon & slide the screen left or right to sync the object with the screen view as per the screen instructions. It works fine. I love it and happy when i can say "that Mars" or "that's Jupiter" with confidence. Even found the ISS with it..Version: 3.5.1

Very coolI wouldn't advise it - but it would be interesting to light up a mild organically grown hooter and use this app on a clear night..Version: 3.5.1

Sensational !!This app is the best. My favourite. Hardly a day goes by when I don’t use it. :)))).Version: 3.5.1

Love itBrilliant for me as a total amateur. Love the music too 😊.Version: 3.5.1

Works well in New Zealand!The augmented reality feature that maps the stars and solar system around you is really impressive. My kids love it. I am able to use this app to find the Southern Cross easily - just use the search feature to search for the Acrux star..Version: 1.1

Rene LavioletteBest sky for your buck.Version: 3.6.1

Amazing Star GazingThis app is incredible. If you're remotely interested in the night sky this app is a must. Beautifully presented. I could spend hours exploring. Thanks!.Version: 3.5.1

Fun and inspirationalMy family Has had this app for a number of years and it never gets old. We are always amazed by the ease in which we can explore and ponder the universe. While many are so predisposed to languish on their phone by doing email and Facebook, take a moment and use this app to see this magnificent universe the envelops and surrounds us. Amazingly our ancestors know much more about the universe then us because they took time to challenge their brains and imagine the wonders of the world..Version: 3.5.1

Voyager 1 and 2 SpacecraftsFirst of all I would like to say that this is my favorite app of all time. My friend and I have spent many nights far out in the Nevada desert exploring the universe, guided by SkyView. There are two objects though that I was wondering if you could add to SkyView; would it be possible to include the location of the Voyager spacecrafts? According to NASA, they are currently about 13,000,000+ miles out there, it would be fun to point the app out there and imagine those little spacecrafts cruising out into interstellar space. Thank you very much.Version: 3.6

StarsAbsolutely amazing star gazing, best money I ever spent and huge thanks from the kids and me.Version: 1.3.1

StargazerLove this! Totally worth the upgrade to track the planets..Version: 2.1.1

Quite A Good AppI've got quite a few apps like this, paid and free ones and this one is one of the decent ones. I quite like the augmented reality feature in it and the ease of access to the settings and changing the screen to red for saving your ' night vision ' for viewing the night sky. I'd highly recommend this app to anyone who is fascinated by the night sky or has an interest in astronomy like myself. Great app worth downloading !.Version: 3.5.1

Best application I’ve ever boughtThis app is absolutely fantastic. A huge thank you to the developers. It is precise and extremely easy to explore the night sky. It’s so fascinating to see what the stars are called, where the star signs are, identifying planets and even seeing the suns trajectory for the day. Five stars to the developers!.Version: 3.5.1

Stands the rest of timeI first downloaded this app about 10 years ago when the App Store was still just a few years old and apps that were actually good quality and genuinely useful were hard to come by. 10 years later and I still regularly revisit this app whenever I look up at the night sky and think to myself, I wonder if that twinkling “star” is Mars or Jupiter. 10 years later and I’m still in awe every time I line up my phone with the object in the sky and see that it accurately found and identified the object I was looking at. Truly one of the best apps available in the App Store..Version: 3.6.2

SkyViewExcellent application for exploring the night sky and everything it holds (including the alarming amount of space junk!) Only criticism would be the compass and its difficulty in identifying true North. A very worthy and good value for money application..Version: 3.6.1

VERY unexpectedI was doubtful, but this app really surprised me with how well this app worked! I bought it and went straight outside to see if it was accurate and really was! This app will be my go to guide when looking for objects to find through my telescope..Version: 3.5.1

FantasticAmazing app. Transformed how I’ve raised my children to seek science and space..Version: 3.6

Wowsers!Got the app today...wow space debris. So much of it...Excellent app, makes you think how much mess we've made in space already..Version: 3.5.1

AwesomeThis app is legit. Found a few planets through this, looked through my telescope, and they were there. Awesome buy, especially if you’ve got a telescope..Version: 3.6.1

My favorite app!I love this app! Just point your camera at an object, and it tells you what it is. Search for a specific object, and it points you to it, even if it’s not actually in view. You can see what the sky looks like from the other side of the world, if you want to. You can see what’s in space, even if it’s cloudy…even from indoors, if you want. Great for learning the stars and constellations! Just be sure not to use a case for your phone that has a magnet. Magnets, even weak ones, interfere with your phone’s compass and orientation sensors. I had to take my phone out of the case with the magnetic latch. It’s very accurate now. My new, non-magnetic phone case is on the way!.Version: 3.6.2

Sky viewFantastic teaching tool..Version: 1.3.1

Excellent sky app!A very excellent tool for anybody from amateur to less amateur to explore our wonderful skies. Easy to use and very user-friendly set-up. Highly recommended..Version: 3.6

AmazingVery useful for finding all of those hard to find planets and stars, highly recommended😀.Version: 3.5.1

Best sky appSo interesting.Version: 3.6.1

Beautiful and EasyI’ve had this app for years and have learned a lot from it. I absolutely love this app. I gave it 4 stars because I had it stuck on North for a long time. Eventually I discovered that my magnetic phone case was causing the issue. Wish there was better customer service as I did try to reach out to the company and search their site for why. Other than that, it’s been the best one I’ve been able to find!.Version: 3.6.1

Great app, buy the full versionGreat on Lite, but most certainly worth £2 for the full version. A great app when light pollution is affecting your ability to ID a star. Yes, it’s quite light compared to the likes of Stellarium, but then it’s a tenner. I have both and keep things app as it works even outside of internet reception, meaning finding Polaris is never a challenge when in new areas for astrophotography. My favourite part of it however is the extremely detailed descriptions of various objects with an “audio” that doesn’t follow the text descriptions. A must have for amateurs in all areas of stargazing!.Version: 3.6.1

Love thisThis app is great! Using the app alone you can travel through the night sky, even in light polluted skies (like my Bortle class 7 sky) and enjoy the wonders above us. I’ve recently upgraded to a Dobsonian telescope and I like to put my phone in a magnetic holder on the tube itself to help direct me to different objects in the sky (it’s not as accurate as my finders of course but does get me in the general area of interesting things!). Thank you for making a pocket planetarium for us lovers of space.Version: 3.6.2

Best astronomy app!Well worth upgrading to the paid version of this app. So many more brilliant features and preference settings. I use it purely for tracking satellites and find it much better than the Satellites app. Love it! 🛸🚀🔭.Version: 3.5.1

Love the night skyI’ve had this app for many years, still enjoy looking searching the night sky..Version: 3.6

Recommend it highly!Use it often. Love it and already recommended it to many people. Great app. Would LOVE to see a few changes, enhancements, such as ability to better see MY VUEW, that is, sort of bring my perspective into focus and filter OUT the stuff I cannot see. This would help me learn MY SKY and I could then go deeper from there. Since I see nearly EVERYTHING through the App view, I often have difficulty pinpointing the name of EXACTLY which star, comet, satellite I am actually observing with my little eye. I want to know what THAT LIGHT I SEE is, so I can think on what I am looking at more fully. Sometimes I cannot be sure, since once the app screen comes on, we’ll, some further away lights become brighter than the one Zi am actually looking at without looking through the app viewer. WHEW!!!! Hard to explain. THANKS!!.Version: 3.6.1

Compass will stop working with magnetics caseFirst off, I’m revising my review yesterday after I bought another sky app and it also was frozen in place and my iPhone compass was also frozen. This app is very enjoyable and informative. Well worth the money I paid for it. If you have freezing issues, meaning the app is stuck in one location, check your phone compass. If that is also frozen, check your phone case. If it has any component that is magnetic (mine did from the snapping back), try taking it off. It fixed the freezing issue. If it still freezes, then I’d write a review to inform others..Version: 3.6.1

GreatVery informative, beautiful graphics, recomended.Version: 1.3.1

Very happyUsed this app approx 2 years. Always there like a trusted friend whenever I want to identify an object. Writing is a bit small for oldies, but otherwise have never seen a reason to get anything different..Version: 3.6.1

Great fun and informativeI love this app, and often get it out to show friends at the end of warm summer evenings in the garden. Recently I was invited to stay on a yacht, and anchored away from almost any man-made light pollution, the night sky came alive. Thanks to this app, we were not only enthralled by the stunning view, but we felt more connected with the universe!.Version: 3.5.1

So goodLove it.Version: 3.6

I like it.For the most part this is a very good app, I would suggest making the small payment and getting the full version though as it does have a lot more constellations available. It would be nice though if it pointed out things like comets as well..Version: 3.6.1

Potable mapGreat for taking out at night at the right time. Saves guessing where you need to look..Version: 3.6.1

Love thisI love this app, being able to sit in my garden and identify what I’m seeing is great and my daughter loves it aswel. Is there anyway the app could track comets?.Version: 3.6.1

Favorite astronomy app!I love this app. I've had it for several years now. It's so cool to be able to hold it up to the sky and see what's there, day or night. Catch a glimpse of a satellite and hold up the app to see what it is. I've seen the Hubble and the ISS. It's educational for adults and kids. I've had a few other astronomy apps but this is my favorite. I deleted the others. I would be nice to have the constellation art fade away after a couple of seconds instead of taking up so much screen real estate. Maybe have a toggle for the option?.Version: 3.6.1

SkyViewGreat App - for a star gazing novice this App is brilliant and for someone who is more advanced, there is something for you as well. Excellent for learning about the stars and astronomy. Bob R.Version: 3.5.1

Common Names PleaseAs for naming the constellations, I am accustomed to “Big Dipper,” and “Little Dipper.” The constellation overlay gets pretty confusing when I see the outline of a little bear where I am expecting to see dipper, which is presented in the sky. This is a five-star app for identifying celestial bodies, but the presentation overlays of the celestial icons gets confusing when trying to identify objects within my local night sky. I am a true amateur at identifying the celestial bodies. My primary objective is to identify a particular bright “star” and get the info about it, and this app is excellent at this..Version: 3.6

Great UI, no comets though?Great for finding constellations and satellites etc, really easy to use and beautiful interface. Search functionality is also great. My only gripe would be - there doesn’t seem to be a way to find comets like eg Neowise... any plans to include transitory objects like comets etc via a feed or something?.Version: 3.6.1

Great AppExcellent, I like the search feature, it takes you directly to what you want to find, it’s amazing how many stars there are in the sky!!.Version: 3.5.1

Nice appEasy to use. Makes an interesting discussion with friends and family when wondering what that star is etc..Version: 3.1.1

Freaking fantastic: D worth having if you are a star gazer.Version: 1.2.1

I spy in the skyThis is without doubt the best sky view app I've tried, so much so I've actually paid to own it. Hard to go past, full of fun facts & easy to use..Version: 3.5.1

Cool app!I’ve recently really gotten into stargazing and this app is really cool! The only reason I did four stars is because although there is an augmented reality setting, I really wish there was a setting where half of my screen is the app’s sky info and the other half is my phone’s actual camera - this way I can actually pinpoint exactly which star or planet I’m seeing out at night!! I also wish there was a tracker on what phase the moon is in, and when it will next be full or new. Other than that, this is a really neat app!.Version: 3.6

YAY!I like how you can find certain planets and constellations. You can even find stars, but I would like to detect space rubble. Well done..Version: 1.3.1

Great app, but music no longer worksI purchased this several months ago, and I love it, but the music no longer works. I’ve verified both in the app and in my phone settings that music is on, plus I’ve rebooted my phone. Is this a bug? If so, please fix. For people complaining the stars show when pointing the app at a floor or wall: you think the stars stop existing once they’re out of sight or below the horizon? The app is showing you the stars as if you were able to see through the planet, or just your wall. It’s not capturing the *actual* stars and labeling them. That would be a mighty powerful phone camera if it could do that. The app is a *map*, a star chart, to the skies. This is also why it needs calibration. Stop crying “Fake!”, and enjoy the app..Version: 3.5.1

If you’re interested in the stars and what’s really out of this world try thisThis is a very easy app to use quite straightforward I use this app nearly every day And don’t forget to use a tripod if you are using it with a phone it’s much easier It’s worth its money Truly out of this world.Version: 3.6.1

Sky view rocksThis app just works. Spot something in the night sky you’re not sure of? Open app and point towards it. Now you know. No fuss just does the job..Version: 3.6

Brilliant!Love this App! Have learnt lots including where certain stars/planets are & also where the International Space is in its orbit & even where space junk is! Easy to use & very detailed 😃. Perfect for anyone interested in our amazing universe 😃.Version: 3.3.1

Probably my favorite app in the App StoreI have never ever gotten so much out of an app as I have with SkyView. Every single time I open the app, I learn something new. This app makes it INCREDIBLY easy to figure out what I'm seeing in the night sky. On top of that, it's accurate, fast, informative, and simple to use. No matter if you are a student, astronomer, or just someone interested in the cosmos, get the free version of the app and give it a try. If you love it as much as I do, buy the full app. I promise you won't be disappointed. $1.99 is a small price to ask for an app as impressive and complete as this one..Version: 3.5.1

Seems I’m not aloneReally could do with the compass knowing which way is which every time I fire up the app. When I’m at home I know which way is which but if I’m out & about it’s a pain. Other than that it’s a great app!.Version: 3.5.1

Great!Very entertaining and informative, well worth the purchase :).Version: 2.1.0

RoseIncredibly good.Version: 1.3.1

Great for getting kids interested in spaceGot the kids looking into the night sky, picked a satellite on the app then watched it fly over, kids though that was cool. Helps locate planets, constellations and the ISS. Top app..Version: 3.6

I Literally Wanted an iPhone so I Could Use this AppThis is a really smooth running app, especially on the newest iOS update. I like to use this for astrological as well as educational purposes. The night mode is perfect for Star gazing, it allows you to identify exactly which star you’re looking at without blinding you with blue light and making it hard to see the stars. This app is a really good resource and it’s beautifully made. 5/5 all around 🙌🌏🪐💫⭐️✨.Version: 3.6.1

SuperThis app is awesome! It is by far my favorite. To be able to see so much, any time of day, is a fantastic experience. I used the light version for about 15 minutes, then knew I wanted to purchase full version. I have a 9 year old who loves to view space with a telescope. This app points him in the exact direction and time, for viewing many objects. Thanks for a great app. Update: I have been using this app for over 6 years now and it's still used at least weekly. My then 9 year old son is now 15 and has it on his own phone. My other sons, now 9 and 10 also ask to use my phone at times, just to explore the skies, even while inside the house..Version: 3.5.1

Great appI had downloaded the free version and was quite impressed with it so I purchased the full app and it provides much more information. I’m particularly impressed with seeing the satellites and spent rocket debris is out in our NEO. However when using the auto location positioning there’s a slight misalignment with respect to my actual location and the constellations..Version: 3.6.2

Awesome...all-in-one best appThis is an app of few that the children can use day or night and learn something of value....Regards 👍👍👍.Version: 3.5.1

The Universe made easy....This awesome app makes answering my kids questions easy and fun!! Love it. We use it at home, on road trips, during special space events, and my fave.... camping! My only issue, which is fairly easy to adjust, is the iPhone version has to be recalibrated every time we use it. Not hard to do, but kind of a bother when we want info on a 'star' or planet quickly. Really cool that it can be filtered (or set to show multiple sets of data) to give us info on our satellites, space trash, and different missions from around the globe. Definitely a laypersons go to app for all that is in our local universe..Version: 3.5.1

Great AppThis app works every time it’s spot on, very pleased with it tried others but I think this is the best..Version: 3.6.2

Tracked the ISS (International space station)Because of the app, I got to track the ISS (International space station) which flew right over my house. That’s thing if FAST! I am 56 years old and have never seen anything like that before. I found it quite amazing and thrilling. All thanks to this wonderful app that was correct with times and placement. I have used this on my iPad & iPhone. I originally downloaded it to figure out where the consultations were and it is great for finding those. My favorite of course is Orion. I get to see all the constellations from the horoscopes and what time of year they will be visible. This app will even show you all the space junk floating around in space and the names of them. I never knew there were so many Russian made and launched satellites up there floating around until I got this app. It’s truly a wonderful app and I have and am currently thoroughly enjoying it..Version: 3.6.1

Rare that I write a review......But a friend showed me and my fam this app, and it is such a source of wonder. I check it daily when I rise & see what beautiful celestial body is shining down from the heavens above. Really filled me with an even greater sense of respect for Creation & deeper desire to know God. A great blessing for my kids especially, who have now been insisting on a telescope and a visit to an observatory. Couple that with their new desire to take astronomy classes, & it is a accurate to say that this app is WORTH IT. Thank you to the developers for an excellent product..Version: 3.6.1

The Best Out There!This is the best app I’ve ever used relating to looking up at the night sky! What a way to study the universe. To be able to look up, point and Wala all the knowledge you'd ever want relating to the SolarSystem, constellations, galaxies planets, nebulas, etc. just right at your fingertips. Get this, if you don’t know where it is that you’re looking for this app will even point you right to it, not only that it will show you the time it hits horizon, a outline of the path it’s following, where it is any time day or night, just unbelievable. People today have this knowledge right at their fingertips. In my day we had to go to a Library or open up a encyclopedia find a book, open the book, find the section and read about it, also the knowledge was limited. This modern knowledge to be right at your fingertips is just unbelievable..Version: 3.5.1

AwesomeLove it. Easy and fun..Version: 3.5.1

One bug to fixMap orientation, even on auto, it identifies location but the compass direction is incorrect. Just one star missing..Version: 3.6.2

Skyview v1.1A truly fantastic program which allows the novice astronomers amongst us to fully appreciate the night sky & exactly what we're looking at, or perhaps looking at but not seeing, such as the International Space Station. This program is easy to use and makes an already interesting night sky absolutely fascinating. I highly recommend it & give it 5 Stars!.Version: 1.2.1

GuyWillyExcellent app, I got the app with my first real telescope, it is almost a must for beginners. A basic moon map would be great, name the main craters etc. overall very good thank you..Version: 3.5.1

The best appI really enjoy discovering sky. Extremely interesting and detailed map. Thank you, developers.Version: 3.5.1

Super appli ! Je la recommande !Le système est tellement bien fait ! Autant le solaire que celui de l’app !.Version: 3.6.1

Best purchase everThis app is absolutely the best app I've even downloaded/bought. It is so much fun and so educational. I would recommend this to anyone!!.Version: 3.5.1

Amazing!This app is amazing! It reminds me of Virtual Reality because you can see the whole sky even when you are sitting in your bedroom!.Version: 3.6

AmazingLove this app. Makes it easy to find the planets when I am using my telescope..Version: 3.6

Awesome App for Stargazing!Just used this app on the dark farmland nearby. Absolutely amazing to finally identify the stars and objects above my head. Highly recommended..Version: 3.5.1

Best app ever!This is hands down the best app I have ever downloaded onto my iPhone. I’ve often wondered what stars I’m looking at in the sky and this tells you, in real time, what’s out there. Full of graphics, information, night vision, constellation lines. The works. I was a casual stargazer before but I’m obsessed now thanks to this. A+++++.Version: 3.5.1

You can't go wrong hereThis app is one of the best I've ever downloaded. It's both educational, and soothing. The background planetarium-like music sets the vibe, and the knowledge the app hits you with is a slap in the face with good, solid, sky-based info. You'll quickly learn what rides across your horizon with this thing. It will give you a warm feeling as you learn the planets and the constellations that rule your sky at night. And it that isn't enough.... it tells you where the major satellites are! Be the envy of your friends as you rattle off where the hubble, or the space station resides as you rally 'round the campfire..Version: 3.5.1

I love SkyViewThis is one of my favorite apps for camping, boating, etc. every time I get it out I’m amazed by the well done interface and the massive database of info. My only request would be to add the ability to tell the app where I am with a Latitude and Longitude rather than just by the nearest city. I am often using it at very remote locations and I can’t always get it oriented just right since I can’t give it precise enough location info. Otherwise it’s phenomenal. Keep updating!.Version: 3.5.1

Good appThis is really useful for astronomy as it makes it easier to find planets and stars, you can also see further in time to know when the planets wont be visible. I also like how it gives you detail on planets/stars as well..Version: 3.6.1

Great appI love this app, I use it a lot..Version: 3.6.2

SkyViewExcellent app! As long as you understand that Earth is a spinning, spherical planet that moves & that space/stars etc SURROUND it, then you won't have any problems. Easy to use, accurate, informative & fun..Version: 3.5.1

Best App in the Galaxy!The best $1.99 i ever spent! I would have paid 5x’s that for this app! I downloaded it almost 2 years ago. It is, hands down, my most used app on my phone and iPad. I use it daily! I love it when camping, I love it on my deck, I love it from the educational aspects, the astrological aspect, when planets are in retrograde!! I really love it when i use it with with my nieces. It is fun for them to see the planet associated with the “star” they see (or might have wished on) . Creators did a supreme job making this app..Version: 3.6

Like the night sky? Then this is a must have!!!This app is so easy to use, so informative and FUN. Once you open the app it is hard to close. Hours of fun and hours of my mind been blown... I’ve seen 100s of galaxies and nebulas, I’ve found space mission rockets flouting around from the 60s and identified satellites that pass over my garden. 5 stars does not give this app justice! Probably the best app going! 👍.Version: 3.6.1

Best app I have ever boughtEver.Version: 1.3.1

Best star gazing appFor a beginner this app is everything I could ask for. Really worth paying the money for the extra features. Couldn't be happier :).Version: 3.5.1

Brilliant-on iPod 4th gen.Very clever and absolutely amazing!.Version: 1.3.1

My all time favourite App!I have had this app for many years now and still to this day it is my absolute favourite app of all time! (I am a bit of a space nerd...) I have learned SO much from this app, without it I’d feel lost in the universe! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.Version: 3.5.1

The first one I will go to.I am using several apps to view the sky, but SkyView is always the first one I will go to. I love my SkyView, SkyView is simple to use and always shows me all the star information I am looking for. Thanks.Version: 3.6.1

Great app, one slight error.Really good app, great to use and really accurate but i have one slight problem every once and a while. Sometimes when i load the app up the stars and planets will not move when i move so i can’t see what planets are behind me or to the side of me. The only visible stars and planets i can see are the ones loaded up on the screen. Any suggestions for this fix?.Version: 3.6

Sky ViewExcellent, easy to use highly recommend..Version: 1.2.1

Love this appI’ve used this app for a number of years now and absolutely adore it. Have had iOS for 10 years and SkyView is undoubtedly my all-time favourite app. Paid for the full version without hesitation. As a lifelong skywatcher, it was worth every penny. Thanks for developing it guys, you’ve truly done a service for skywatchers worldwide..Version: 3.6.2

So far okay but...We’ve been using the free app for sometime but my son loves stargazing and learning about astronomy. He particularly wanted to locate UY Scuti, the largest star in the Milky Way. But, this star is not in the app. Why not? It makes me wonder what else may be missing. Aside from this, the app fun and easy to use. I hope this addition can be made in the future..Version: 3.6.1

Fantastic AppFantastic app. Would be great if the Chinese Tiangong space station was added..Version: 3.6.2

SkyviewOne word can describe this app: Wonderful!.Version: 1.2.1

Not calibratedOverall I like this app. It is easy to use. You look at the sky you put the circle on the star you want and it tells you what it is. The only thing bad at this point is two days ago the calibration doesn’t work. So when I came to Circle at the sky, the planet from my perspective is about a foot off to the left. I use the manual calibration tool, but when you use it you can’t see the name of the planet and you can’t make it stay on the planet. I do not see any way to get a hold a Overall I like this app. It is easy to use. You look at the sky you put the circle on the star you want and it tells you what it is.

Im searching for a clue on the Internet to fix it I find other people have had this problem also. If you can fix the calibration I would certainly give it a five star..Version: 3.6.1

AmazingSo good for amateur astronomers. I have learnt so much about the night sky around me and also find it easy to locate my favourites such as the ISS and Sirius!.Version: 3.5.1

Wow!This app is awesome! I learned so much about outer space. I would like more apps like this one.Version: 3.6.1

Love itGreat app. Fun to pull out at night!.Version: 3.6.1

Terrific App!I didn’t use this long before I paid for the full version because the developers deserve support and compensation for this. It’s the best app I’ve tried. The only change I would suggest is the ability to calibrate both up-down and side-to-side. My phone’s calibration is terrible and everything is a little out of position. I know it’s the phone and not this excellent app because my compass is off, too..Version: 3.6.1

'Down Under' in New Zealand it's GreatSimple operation - it's such a breeze to use. It does't need to be online. Orient to something you know like the sun, moon or known star and everything is in perspective!.Version: 1.2.1

WowThis app is awesome. Spend hours just checking everything out!.Version: 1.3.1

Updated versionI love Sky View. I just updated to the premium and it is well worth the upgrade. My only comment is that I wish I could hide the space junk (spent rocket launchers) but still get to see the the satallites that I love to track (hubble and others) . I find the proliferation of rocket launchers turning on their axix distracting and it takes away from the beauty and serene starry sky of the original free version. I ended up putting the free version back on my phone yesterday so I could have a choice, The additional music tho is nice. and lots of other choices in the upgrade that I do like. please tho make a toggle switch for the rocket launchers alone. but leave the science and other satellites to view. I see that Japan has recently sent up a space debris garbage truck! (Dec 16) to collect some of these spent rocket launchers. Thanks for a great app tho.Version: 3.5.1

StargazerLove this app. So tempting to spend hours stargazing.Version: 3.6.1

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFULAll I can say is this. There are no flaws with this app to make a long story short. The details in this app are phenomenal. I would HIGHLY recommend this app for anyone, child or adult, who is interested in knowing what the names of certain stars are as well as what the names of all the satellites are. Not to mention that the music in this app makes it an even more pleasant experience. This app is well worth every cent. I made no mistake by purchasing this app..Version: 3.6.1

SkyViewFabulous.Version: 3.6.1

Great AppI love this app and I use it all the time.Version: 1.3.1

I love this appThis is probably my favorite app to use, and maybe the only one on my phone that elicits a ‘wow that’s cool’ response to everyone I show it to. Why anyone wouldn’t have this on their phone is beyond me. You just open it up, point it at the star/planet/object you’re looking at, and it identifies it for you. That’s it. Shows what’s below the horizon too, aka what may be visible in a few hours. I’ve had this app for years and it’s never crashed or failed to open. For my needs it’s perfect. I recommend this to literally everyone who’s blessed with vision and has even the slightest curiosity regarding what’s in the sky..Version: 3.5.1

MrAwesome app very entertaining.Version: 1.3.1

Very Good .This app is a complete wonder, the universe at your fingertips, just one problem , North has to always be done manually , other than that it’s simple fantastic . 🤠.Version: 3.6.1

Superb appI have used this app for a couple of years now. I am curious about space stuff and have learned so much since purchasing it. It's a great app to show to the kids too. Easy to use and very educational..Version: 3.5.1

Great App but……Love this app but would be better without the celestial drawings being so animated - could they be toned down ? Cheers From Outback Australia.Version: 3.6.2

IncredibleThe best app for looking at stars, has so many great features and is really easy to use. It has so much information about everything you could see. Definitely recommend!.Version: 3.6.1

Really useful, works, stableMuch better than I hoped for. I've had a lot of pleasure from this app, recommended.Version: 3.5.1

Every one I show is hookedThe most mind blowing app u can get.Version: 3.6.1

Great App!!I’ve tried 5 other stargazing apps and this app has the biggest bang for the buck! Other paid apps still want more after you’d bought to unlock deep space or zoom; but this one has all. Some complain about performance and all I can say is I’d look for another app that may be interfering with your app (location services). That might fix your issues. I promise this app is worth the effort. A lot for the buck! Believe me. After 5 tries, I can tell you. 4$ Canadian, only 78mb, PACKED with features AND it runs offline!!! Awesome sauce dudes!!!.Version: 3.6.1

Knowledgeable AppEvery time I use this and show it to a friend they are amazed at how well it works!! There’s just so much out there to discover..Version: 3.6.1

Great App. Worth learning. Some wishes?Been using this app for years. I like waiting and watching for satellite sightings. I see now there is a widget of the sightings available. But the widget only shows the top of the list of sightings! Can there be a filter, sort option, or favorites option for sightings? To be able to at least select what sightings to see in the widget? Thanks for the app. I recommend this app. It’s not real friendly, but once you learn it, it’s awesome. It’s not a game..Version: 3.6

Delighted!I've only just started my exploration of the cosmos, and what a great tool to see what's out there. Love it! Great to share with the kids too!.Version: 3.5.1

FantasticI love this app. It is great..Version: 3.6

Nz0123Bloodie gear app. Great for learning.Version: 1.2.1

Sky’s the limitLocked down in a big city but still able to enjoy the stars with this fantastic, time wasting, app..Version: 3.6.1

FantasticI think this site is an amazing learning tool for all ages..Version: 1.3.1

Great AppI love this app I love exploring the universe and seeing all the stars and astronomy signs and space stations I think it’s a great app and great tool to learn about the universe but just to sit back and observe what’s going on up there is exciting it’s quite interesting and time filler Just waiting for the day or night I see a flying object eg: plane, helicopter or spaceship (LOL).Version: 3.6.1

Easy to Use, Lots of InfoIt would be great to see updates to the content along with the tweaks to work with changing iOS Versions. Those are important, of course, but so is having current information about the satellites and other space craft in near-earth orbits and beyond. Information about HST is at least 6 years old, and the JWT has settled into its spot now. Doesn’t take away from the positives in the app, but current info is important..Version: 3.6.2

Love itI love this app. Its just great to see whats actually above us. Ive found north is a bit off but still love it..Version: 3.6.1

GreatI like Skyview thank you for this app.Version: 3.6.1

Excellent, straightforward sky mapNow this is exactly what I wanted in a “sky map” type app. Doesn’t come after you for a subscription you don’t need like a cousin with a bad habit. The UI is consistent and straightforward, and does not obscure the view at all in landscape orientation. Offers a good amount of information. I like it a lot. I tried out the lite version first, and was happy to pay once for the full version because it’s exactly what I needed. Thanks for making this app.Version: 3.6.2

Had it for six months, it's really good!I've been using this for the last six months, I'd be lost without it. 5 stars from me!.Version: 3.5.1

I love this appI use this app often as I walk the dog at night. It has opened my awareness of how interesting the night sky is! 😊.Version: 3.5.1

See the ⭐️ starsMy first App I ever downloaded; 4iPhones later and it’s still with me. If you love astronomy, this is the one..Version: 3.6

Very GoodI’ve been using this app for years now and it works like a charm every time. Sometimes it’s a little bit off where the stars are but it’s close enough to get the idea. I would love to see even more things be added to the app as I feel we never get any new content!.Version: 3.6

Definitely worth the priceEven though the free version is okay anyway, the paid version for only $8 is amazing! Works great on an iPad and is great for people like me who are only just starting out in astronomy. It looks like a lot of work from the developers has gone in here!.Version: 3.6.1

Truly amazing appSo impressed with this app..Version: 3.5.1

SuperI love this app. If I'm feeling bored or at a loose end I switch it on and look at the planets, stars, satellites and constellations all around. I upgraded recently - for a mere £1.95 - and there is even more to see. I often show it to friends and they love it too. Just magic..Version: 3.5.1
