Amazing!Very convenient and simple to use, detailed informations are amazing! Highly recommended!.Version: 7.0.4

Incredible. Worth paying forI wanted a map of the night sky, especially when I can’t go outside due to COVID. I looked at quite a few options in the app store, most of which had a monthly subscription fee of $5, which was too much for me! I saw the preview for sky guide and how rich the information seemed to be, and saw it was only $3 to buy it. So I did and it’s absolutely incredible!! I can see anywhere in the night sky, even places that would normally be obscured by the horizon. There’s information about the magnitude of stars, and lots of greek mythology. The only thing I would say is I would love to be able to zoom out more and have a greater view of the sky from my phone, but I figured that if I was actually lying under the stars, the view on my phone would be proportional to what I would see in the sky (if that makes sense!).Version: 8.1.9

StarsLove this!.Version: 6.7.1

Some good stuff hereEspecially for offline use.Version: 8.1.9

AmazingGreat app- thanks.Version: 8.1.9

Supermassive somewhat lackingSupermassive addition is fantastic but I really wish deep sky objects would be visible in different wavelengths instead of just composites shown in visible light. The photos are out there and public domain. It would be super cool! I will say I have used every app and this is the best, even use it for work!.Version: 8.1.4

5 ⭐️s, missing points of interestI'm absolutely loving this app. Can't say enough about it. That said, many of the things I'd be most interested in knowing where to find (e.g., Apep, TON 618, the Great GRB Wall, etc.) aren't cataloged (even with a Supermassive subscription). By no means is this any kind of deal breaker but I think allowing us to use coordinates (i.e. right ascession, declination) to find and favorite certain points in the sky would be a smart move. It'd give the app that much more appeal, as the user wouldn't just be getting a passive, exploratory experience but would actually get to chart the map out themselves, in a sense. Just my thoughts. I have no idea how feasible it would be but it'd be a great addition..Version: 8.0.3

My Favourite Astronomy ToolI’m an Amateur Astrophotographer and this app is my main means of planning viewing and photography opportunities. It’s highly accurate, full of detail and very beautiful! I recommend it above all of its competitors.Version: 6.7.1

Worth every penny!Wouldn’t be without this app, spent hours looking to the night sky, its so useful to just quickly check whats shining at you from a far or to track something thats moving. Fascinating stuff. Buy this app, you will mot regret it, a wealth of information and detail awaits you!.Version: 8.1.9

Love this app...One of the best apps around. Easy to use and informative. My daughter and I often use it when camping..Version: 6.6

🪐LOVE IT!!!🪐✨Very cool app for free! No issues while using it ✨.Version: 8.1.9

FantasticReally great app. Love being able to track satellites across the sky.Version: 3.0

Night and DayGreat app, easy to use, with a lot of information on the night (and day) sky. Instead of guessing what that star is...or arguing with someone who says it’s a planet...remove all doubt and enjoy the night sky in peace and harmony..Version: 8.0.1

Opening my eyes to the galaxyWhat a revelation this has been to me! I look forward to getting my five minute warnings to observe the ISS and other man made wonders along with learning about our own little solar system and the ever-expanding galaxy..Version: 6.7.1

Geopony1The kids and I love this app, not only does it give constellation and star names but it allows you to track the ISS so you can be sure to see it go overhead. Great app thanks.Version: 8.1.8

AR = MIND. BLOWN.I’ll state right away that I own pretty much every astronomy app that’s worth owning. I’m not an expert by any means, just an avid fan who’s always interested in learning more about space. I’ve never left a review for any of the apps in this category before but, after spending just 5 minutes exploring my evening sky in augmented reality, I felt compelled to congratulate the developer for nailing it right out of the gate. The controls are intuitive and the tips show on screen at the perfect time. That’s how I found the sky blending feature and that’s when the real magic happens! Before AR it always seemed like the star or planet in the sky that I was trying to identify with the app was close to what I was seeing on my device but it often felt like I was just guessing that I had my phone or iPad pointed at the right spot of light in the sky. However, with AR and the sky blending feature I “know” that I’m identifying the exact point of light in the sky that interests me. If you’re on the fence about purchasing this app stop wasting your time. Tap buy and get outside!!!✨💫✨.Version: 6.5

WOWI think we have all learned real quick that you never purchase an app without reading most of the reviews!! I've been using this app for a few years now and it is beyond awesome I gave it five stars because they did not have an option for 25 stars!! What is that star out there that looks so bright?? Oh that's not a star it's Jupiter.... you can set up notifications and I've seen the international space station fly by many many times it's actually pretty awesome to see how fast it does fly by!!! And these are just a few of the things that it's capable of doing!! Don't hesitate Awesome awesome app!!.Version: 6.2.3

A Must Have AppSky Guide never ceases to amaze and deliver with every update. It’s truly the finest night sky app there is. The new Tonight section with light pollution map is the icing on the cake. It would be good to be able to expand the map to full screen and show rise/set times of the moon and other planets when you tap them, but it is still a welcome and much used addition. A perfect app from Fifth Star Labs. Money well spent..Version: 7.0.1

Fast, convenient and accurateI have been using this App for about three years. It provides all that I need to enjoy the night sky. I programmed it to alert me for events like an ISS overfly of my sky. It is accurate and gives me a 10 min warning. It’s map of the path is perfect. The ISS appears on schedule and in the right spot. Also programmed it for meteor showers, close planets, comets passing by and more. It is a great tool for any amateur or back yard astronomer. It is incredibly accurate to help me locate distant objects in my 10” telescope. I don’t have to rely on charts and wheels anymore. The “Red Phase” makes it easy to use once I my eyes have acclimated and using my telescope. Great App!.Version: 8.1.9

Absolutely Incredible!!!Just got it. Mind Blown!!.Version: 8.1.9

Best sky space App out thereThis is the best sky App out there don't even waste your time on the other ones. Wish I could give it all the stars of the universe. It will be awesome if I get notifications when Starlink will pass by and more SpaceX news..Version: 8.1.4

Love it, but confused after updatesHad this app for a while and still my favorite. However, I’m confused about the updates. There was a recent update that added Chiron, for example, but it is not listed under the “recently added” section. Additionally, even when I look for it manually, it just points to where the object is, but there is no image associated with the description, nor can you zoom into it. At the same time, other recently added items, such as RS Puppis, has the image and location, but no description (you have to tap on the image of the star within the image - like a star within a star - to get a separate description). Doesn’t seem like the recently added section is working properly within the app. Is it just not updating correctly or am I missing something??? Also, since very recent updates, the star brightness feature that requires 2 fingers to adjust directly on the screen is so overly sensitive that I am constantly having to adjust the brightness as I navigate the sky map. Very very frustrating. Is there no way to lock that feature or disable it? Otherwise, still amazing..Version: 6.5.1

Perfect night owl appThis app has been dam amazing and only getting better with time. It has helped me plan my Astrophotography shots and timelapse’s with ease and has always worked flawlessly. Amazing work from the devs. Now with all the info and upcoming events. Well done 👍.Version: 7.1.1

A terrific appA terrific source of information for anyone interested in the stars, planets and what’s out there in space, no matter what level of knowledge you have in astronomy. Point your iPhone to the sky and identify an object in space. Love being advised when the space station comes overhead. A great app. - love it!.Version: 8.1.8

Fantastic!Absolutely love this app. And the music is brilliant. Get outside and use this app, the sky is no longer the limit!.Version: 7.0.1

Best Application Ever !First of All Thanks to the Developer for giving us such a great Application Ever! But The Only Problem in lastest version is “Realtime Moving objects” like i was remember the version 6.01 in that version when we zoom the Moon so the moon will moving in realtime so reallly miss that feature in new versions i request the developer please bring that feature in upcoming version as soon as possible! Please Dear Developer Bring that feature again in option/Button type if someone want sidereal motion they can “TURN ON” and if someone don’t want they can “TURN OFF” sidereal motion. Dear Developer i am also your user i have rights to feedback , The sidereal motion was useful to us because when someone ask us how you can say that this app is a realtime app so that we can show them sidereal motion in zooming the moon like before we did in 6.0.1 version and say to them that look this is the realtime app so i request that please bring it in upcoming version as soon as possible..Version: 7.1.1

Left me speechless🌌I have never rated any app before, This is just amazing, Augmented reality 💙.Version: 8.1.2

Absolutely brilliantAs a Year 10 student who is never really involved or interested with space or the universe, I have to admit that after buying and downloading this app I have become so much more interested in what’s out there. This app is absolutely brilliant, whether you are in your room or outside, it is interesting nevertheless. Firstly, it was absolutely breathtaking at the visuals, all the constellations are visible. I find the compass feature amazing, you are able to face any direction and it will show which stars are there at this exact moment. This app also tells you when approximately the sun rises or reaches its peak, as well as other stars and planets too. Once you click on the star, it provides really interesting information to read and you’ll find yourself reading for hours and being intrigued. News is also provided from the space station, and you are able to see upcoming comets and eclipses and when the moon will be full. Every penny was worth spending on this app, and you can joy even without the secondary subscription. Definitely recommend if you are bored and looking for something to amaze you, or you’re just simply intrigued by our universe..Version: 7.0.1

AmazingAs a huge nerd I’m so glad I bought this, I use it every night.Version: 8.1.9

Love itThis is a very cool app and the background music make it so soothing to look at the sky at night.Version: 8.1.4

START EM YOUNG kids love spaceWith help from your app and a new telescope grandkids even knowing plants , constellation or two Most of all , AUG meter shower at cottage made grandma a hero From 68 yrs to 3 yr old all hooked on SKYWATCH The amazement and enjoyment that my family and I have both had learning and watching this site over the years is unquestionably too hard to explain top rape start them young they love it they don’t want telescopes now.Version: 8.1.9

MesmerisingA seriously spectacular app! I’ve had this for quite a while now, I use it to navigate through the night sky, determine what celestial object it is I see, and just get to know the universe we live in. Recently subscribed to Supermassive and it is truly mesmerising, well worth it for only £10 a year, considering how much this app has to offer even without Supermassive. A perfect app for anyone who loves astronomy..Version: 6.7.1

Worth Every PennyI’m not disappointed at all with this app. In fact, I am highly satisfied! I can’t believe how much information you can get from just looking at ONE STAR. I LOVE the feature that allows you to receive notifications for satellites and other things of that sort. This app is so amazingly designed and put together and so user friendly, I would recommend it to anyone. Literally the best decision I’ve ever made when it came to purchasing an app. Thank you developers for allowing us to use this heavenly application at the touch of our hands!.Version: 8.0.3

SuperbNot a fan of overly complex settings, glad to see this app keeps it to a minimum. Just accidentally found the light view filters!!! One of the best app for the sky there is.Version: 8.1.1

This App!I love everything about this app. I am obsessed with the cosmos. I have friends and a 2 year-old daughter that are also ever interested in what lies above us on this spinning globe. This app not only provides a basic look at the heavens but gives us all the detail we need in real-time. Where is the moon right now? Where will it be in 3 hours? It is an amazing tool to build interest in young kids. They need to be thinking along the lines of STEM and how we can progress life throughout the universe. This is the app to invest time in with your family. It is one app f my favorite things. 😁.Version: 8.1.9

This is good. Real good.Sat out in the back garden one evening last Summer, fire dwindling, stargazing, I noticed something in the sky moving really serenely, making no noise, no flashing. I thought it may have been some sort of satellite so I pulled out my phone and pointed Sky Guide up at the thing. Low and behold there it was. Moving on my phone to match its path in the sky - labelled International Space Station. Technology is incredible and this app is worth every penny..Version: 8.1.2

Must Buy!If you love the night sky then this is the number one app you must purchase for your device. I own on both my iPhone & iPad for just the one cost. Satellite locations including ISS passes are just the added fun bits of this amazing app. The bulk is masses amounts of encyclopaedic information on the Cosmos. Tap on a star, a planet, a moon & read all the detailed information about it. Peruse the night sky at your leisure. Sun, planet, moon, rising & setting times are great too!.Version: 6.2.3

GoodVery good.Version: 8.1.9

This App is A StarThis app helps me locate and identify heavenly bodies. It’s easy to use and has great graphics which make it brilliant to use. Used it yesterday to track the space station. Brilliant!!.Version: 8.1.7

Awesome!Lying my bed at night next to the windows and under my sky light, the night sky full of stars - this is real cool !.Version: 3.2

What is “ fall”I like this guide. It was perfect I til today, when it displayed the usual USA biased presentation. The term “ fall” does not apply in the Southern Hemisphere. It is called AUTUMN!.Version: 7.1.1

Great app but suggestionsI love this app. It is very intuitive, full of content and educational. I do however have a suggestion to give: The Star Guide widget should indicate the change in the planet's rise and set times that occurs. E.g. the moon sets at 16:47 tonight, but tomorrow it will set XYZ minutes later. This can be indicated by an arrow pointing up or down depending on if the rise/set time progresses or regresses the next day. This would be very useful to people like me that plan their telescope viewing ahead of time. Hope the feedback helps, Chris.Version: 7.1.1

This is the one you are looking for.If only you got this one the first time, you would have saved yourself so much mucking around with clunky UIs and staring out into cloudy skies wondering, is that it? This app works really well and is the easiest to use and understand..Version: 8.1.9

The definitive sky appFor a long time now I've had this app and it's getting better and better with every update. Don't look for similar apps, this is the one you want..Version: 5.0

Worth every pennyTo be honest, I never write reviews about anything... ever. I wasn’t sure if I’d like this app at first so I checked the reviews and so many people gave it a five star rating. Now I understand why since I’ve experienced using it myself. After downloading the app I purchased the expanded version of the app for less than $1 per month and I stayed up at night another four hours looking at stars, galaxies, nebulae, planets, and even rockets. It was such a small price to pay to be able to see everything in its real time position in the sky and I’d recommend this to anyone who has even the slightest interest in astronomy..Version: 6.7.1

Absolutely incredibleThis app is amazing. We use it a lot especially on holiday. My kids loved watching the international space station fly over. It’s easy to track planets, stars , satellites....hours of fun..Version: 8.0.2

Snow MoonMy 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. ***.Version: 8.1.2

Unforgettable times with my sonGoing to bed with my then seven year old was always a challenge. He was and still is spinning in high freqency and it’s always hard to get to bed. Just one more game, one more story, one more, one more. I had the fscination of the stars and the universe from a very young age. Read and learnt whatever was available at the time. Following that passion I downloaded this app. One night instead of trying to order and beg my son into the bed I turned this app on and started looking out the window. He then asked me what it was. I explained him about Orion’s belt that was up that night. The giant star Betelgeuse. We kept track of Syrius the frosty star. That became our favorit star. Hope the others wont take offence. We moved from London where we were at that time but we still search for our stars. If we see them then all is good. Thanks for the opportunity that I could share the love of stars and that we can learn so much about them..Version: 6.5.2

All you needA beautiful experience. Super smooth and visually stunning with all the information you need. Look no further..Version: 4.0.1

Brilliant!Awesome app. Free and no ads. Easy to use, full of information. Turns me into an expert! Best app I've ever downloaded - get it, you won't regret it..Version: 6.2.3

To gaze deeply into the beyondWhen we go camping, when the kids are asleep and the fire burns. I get comfy under the stars with this app. The ethereal music soothes me as my mind excites itself at the discovery of what is up there. From constellations to space junk, I find this app a companion and a guide. Undeletable.Version: 6.6

Absolutely brilliantThis app is fantastic and I’d recommend it to anyone. It’s so helpful for a layman trying to figure their way around the night sky and I’ve learned so much from it. The background music is also beautiful. It makes the whole stargazing experience feel even more magical. Absolutely fabulous app, I’ll never use another! 🌌🔭.Version: 6.6

Amazing! Unbelievable! Thank you!I recommend this app wholeheartedly without reservation. This app is not only beautiful to look at as well as fun and easy to use, but also full of up to date information. It has always been an app of the highest quality and well worth the price. I can’t overstate how much I appreciate the fact that although I bought this app a few years ago, it still works as it did when I bought it. I appreciate that, unlike other apps I have bought, this app has not effectively stolen my money by insisting I buy a subscription in order to continue using it, not only that but it includes up to date information! To the developers of this app: Thank you so much for your integrity in honoring my original purchase and more!.Version: 8.1.9

Killer Astro App with amazingly useful localisationI’ve tried stacks of Astro apps over the years. This absolutely nails it in terms of powerful features packaged in the most elegant and easy to use UI. But the real killer feature is localisation. More often than not this level of detail only works in certain countries or cities - but I was delighted to see it works perfectly for me in Adelaide, Australia. I’m talking really useful info like light pollution, cloud cover and visual magnitude - the type of weather data very specific to astronomy and stargazing. This is presented in a very useful format that’s already filtered to my geo location and doesn’t require interpretation of generic weather and maps. There’s also a range of Astro news that’s timely, well curated, and seamlessly integrated. Love this App!.Version: 7.0.4

StarsAmazing view of the stars!.Version: 8.1.9

What a learning aid!!This is an app I really enjoy. It is on tap any time I need it!!.Version: 8.1.9

AwesomeI wish I had known about this a while ago I’ve been reading all sorts of books the old fella at work gave me and I was still none the wiser. The only one I could get right was the big orange thing that we sometimes see in England.😁.Version: 6.6

Love itMy favourite app. Love the night skies and each time I see a brighter than normal star sky guide is my go to. Did I say I love it?.Version: 6.7

LuneLa Lune n’apparaît pas en temps réel. Elle n’y est pas du tout finalement..Version: 8.1.9

Excellent!It’s everything you could want in an app! Well done!.Version: 8.1.9

What can beat this ?This app gives you all the information you need to intrigue you. Opens you mind into how lucky you are to exist, Craig 🤗.Version: 8.1.9

2 notificationsCan you release a fix to stop the 2 notifications for every event, this has happened after the latest update on ios12..Version: 7.0.1

Amazing appI've always been fascinating by space, constellations and what is beyond our reach. But recognising constellations takes a bit of work and a lot of imagination! Thankfully this app helps in shaping artful pics on constellations. It also gives lots of info on stars (mythology behind/ composition, etc...). Love it..Version: 6.6

Deep calls to DeepI’ve loved this app from the beginning, bringing astronomy and physics into the room, the space I inhabit. I constantly return to it, use it, orient with it. For me the soundtrack is an added bonus and just fits, whilst the super massive is amazing and fun. A great great buy..Version: 7.0.1

Breathtakingly alluring.The amount of information in second to none and the ease of using the app is sublime. Looking at stars is so peaceful with the beautiful sounds as you interact with the stars. Even if you're not massively into astronomy, it is still an app you will spend a great amount of time exploring..Version: 6.2.3

Awesome but needs some improvementSo when I saw the AR feature I saw that you could see all the constellations in real life which I was super excited about. But when I tried it out, it was not good. First, The constellations were ridiculously big and when I saw the creator use it, it was not ridiculously big. And second, I waited till 7:00 to go star gazing using this app, and you couldn’t even see the ground and they removed all color from the sky, which the creators didn’t have a problem with. I don’t know if it’s the game or if it’s my phone, but can you please help because this is a little bit odd..Version: 8.1.9

A Star is BornExcellent response, visuals and customised instant info, in the light of day and night. Sheds light on even the darkest parts of the universe. Gob smacking accuracy in the timing of natural and human made space objects. Using the app to track the ISS rising from the equator, passing overhead on a clear night, then disappearing below the opposite horizon, is probably makes me feel ten years old again! A slight irritation, which is probably my own fault, is that, even though It knows my location in the UK, I seem to get notifications as if in the USA. Open to suggestions about that..Version: 6.5.2

Best Stargazing App By Far!This is very worth the money! I use this app everyday, and I love it. My favorite part is that just by pressing the compass at the top, you can move your phone around like you are actually looking at the night sky! You can identify any star in the sky with this app. Not just that, you can see any galaxy, nebula, satellite, planet, star, etc. with this app. It is perfect for skywatching out on a clear and dark night. There is nothing to dislike about this app! I’m not just saying this just because I want to, I’m actually serious. It is super informational and notifies you of passing satellites and so much more! Please buy this app if you’re looking for an amazing stargazing app. It has EVERYTHING..Version: 6.6

Best aroundDefinately the best star app. I have tried a few of the free ones that were ok, took a chance on this and it's definitely worth the money. My daughter loves using it to learn about the night sky too :).Version: 6.2.3

Gg very goodI’ve had app for a few years. It’s pretty lit for locating anything. even your marbles. Have fun kiddos.Version: 6.7.1

Astounding!This app blows my mind every time I use it. Just this evening I was working away when it reminded me the international space station was passing over. Walk out side and there it is! I’ve used the app all over the world and can’t rate it enough.Version: 6.7.1

For amusement and educationI recommend this app for anyone who wants to be amazed by our landscape above. It's entertaining, amusing, and educational! Lots of great features like you can hold your phone up to a specific light in the sky and find out by clicking on the screen what it is, or search for your favorite constellation or planet and have Skyguide point out where it is. You can also "fast forward" or reverse in time to see sunsets and paths of other objects in future or history. Great music track that feels like a live movie soundtrack while you use it. The creators of this app have really given us a treat! (Thank you guys!) My favorite app to use!.Version: 6.5.2

Brilliant appThe app is brilliant in every where possible! I Do wish however that the app was updated more often like adding more comets to the catalog..Version: 8.1.9

Best app ever, and thank you for adding AR modeThis app is the best on the market AND it’s affordable as well. The SUPERMASSIVE add on is great as well (worth subscribing to) because it shows all the deep sky objects in detail. But most of all thank you for adding Augmented Reality because now we can see what part of the sky the objects are in. (YAY!)😄😄😄.Version: 6.5.2

Amazing! Minor improvements could be madeThis app does just about everything, however there’s a few items I feel it misses or could improve. Firstly, adding more asteroids/comets/satellites. There are only some major objects that you can search and find, adding more of these would be great. Secondly it would be fantastic to add in a oxygen 3 and sulphur 2 views (to add to the hydrogen alps view). Finally it would be great if you could set multiple locations as favourites and toggle between them, instead of having to find them each time on the map view. Love everything else about this app!.Version: 8.1.9

A great tool for viewing astronomical events but lacks sufficient supprtI have used this app for nearly as long as it has been out. It is a complex system with many options. While there is a help section, I could find no explicit answer to the question : How to take a photo". I emailed tech support but got no response. One should be able to just tap the screen. But if you press the right sided button you get Seri freezing up the phone. Pressing the right button and the upper left button works if you have a light touch,otherwise you end up nearly rebooting your phone. I notice it has been 5 months since they updated the app. There seem to be newer ones more consistently updated that I will be looking into using..Version: 8.1.9

AwsomeGreat app and greT music.Version: 7.1.1

Amazing and easy to use!!Next level star gazing app. Absolutely love this! Kids and I love taking the iPad out and checking out the stars, so easy to use and full of extraordinary detail and so many extras. Couldn’t rate this app more highly..Version: 8.1.9

Superb!Using this app, I was able to locate Saturn with a telescope, Stunning view!.Version: 6.7.1

Love itSo easy to use and I’m learning so much, amazing app.Version: 8.1.6

Very interesting and coolGotta try it now!!.Version: 8.1.9

I love itMy only critique is I wish that it showed meteor showers and comets passing through.Version: 8.1.9

Makes me forget to breathe!The sky is my first love, and a near-obsession.. so many thanks to the developers for creating this wonder; it is, in a word, perfection. The ambient music, the ease of use, the incredible amount of information, instructions all wonderful, even details of space below our horizon. I somehow relish the thought of sleeping beneath the Draco & Ursula Minor constellations, and I have to say, the visuals should be enjoyed on as large a mobile screen as possible, although it can be dizzying if you move it too quickly. It’s easy to romanticise the stars and to be in awe of space, of which we know so little...I love it, and the mysteries it holds, as it’s sometimes the only thing that makes me feel that the silly little irksome things, and nasty people don’t matter...just look up and wonder. This makes me miss Carl Sagan: “the sky calls to us, if we do not destroy ourselves we will one day venture to the stars” We miss you, Dr. Sagan, but feel a bit closer to you with simple and beautiful tools such as this one. Just remember to breathe..Version: 6.7.1

None Other Than This!You can’t buy a better app than this for astronomy, at whatever level you’re at. The new AR version is marvellous, especially for finding Mercury low in the twilight sky. Thanks and keep it up..Version: 6.6

Star gazingHave come to look for particular stars by being shown their location. Now I see how in times past, people were able to navigate by the stars. Appreciate the notifications of stellar events..Version: 7.0.4

Look UpThis app is Prime Time! The sound effects are stellar. It’s comforting to know what’s upcoming & going on Up There..Version: 8.1.9

Weather, Dark Sky Finder, New AR Features, WOWI opened the Sky Guide app today after the first time in awhile. Today is January 20th, 2019 and a lunar eclipse will be visible in my area in just a couple hours. I have loved Sky Guide since the day I downloaded the app years ago. I have continued to be impressed with attention to detail the developers have added to this app and continue to use every aspect of the iPhone’s functionality to provide the best UI/UX possible for astronomy lovers everywhere. I have never really posted a thorough review of an app before on the App Store, but this app deserves way more than five stars. I am genuinely impressed time and time again every time I open the app on my iPhone XS. Thank you to the Sky Guide team for creating such a tool!.Version: 7.1

AmazingThis is an amazing app. Pretty, educational and fun. It’s easy to use as well. I would LOVE to see support integrated for telescope use such as an automatic azimuth mount controller. Keep the updates coming, I’d love to see even more detail of existing objects as they become available through current research. Thank you for years of enjoyment..Version: 8.1.6

Cool appI love this app.Version: 8.1.6

Worth it for any kind of userThe price for this app is justifiable for anyone that wants to be able to look up and quickly identify what star, planet, or any interstellar object they're looking it. The price is an absolute STEAL for anyone using this to find objects in a telescope or for astrophotography. The fact that this app works in the absence of any kind of internet connection is a godsend when identifying stars in remote locations. Whether you're in a city, in the country, using it to spot a planet, or using it to calibrate a telescope, it's got you covered..Version: 8.1.9

G. A. TrottierI always read the reviews before purchasing any App......So to Anyone who is thinking about purchasing this, it is well worth it... I enjoy going out at night and knowing what I am viewing in the stars above... The night vision makes it very easy to focus back and forth from the dark night sky to my iPad and the background music is soothing....The information on the Planets,Stars and Mythology is highly detailed and very interesting. I have tried other Apps and in my opinion none of the others even come close. This is a great purchase for any mobile device.....Version: 6.2.3

The best astronomy app on iOS by farIf Apple made an astronomy app, it would not be better than Sky Guide. Beautiful graphics, easy to use and functional UI. Well worth the price of entry. Great job developers and keep it up!.Version: 7.0.1

Amazing app!I love looking at the stars at night, and this app seriously takes star gazing to a entire new level! Absolutely amazing app! Have not experienced any glitches or technical issues, and thoroughly enjoy being able to use this app when the stars are out! Have discovered many new stars and facts about them! Definitely recommend this app to anyone who loves star gazing!.Version: 5.1

It freezes frequentlyGenerally good app let down by freezing randomly.Version: 5.1

AmazingBeen playing with this app for 10 minutes and it’s amazing. Already planning an evening cycle next week to see Mercury. Everything about it, right down to the little stories and diary items is perfect. Would give it six stars if I could..Version: 8.1.9

Oh my godThis has given me the ability to see my universe in a different way.Version: 7.0.4

Great app. In love with it.I love this app so much. It is so detailed and even shows light pollution maps for amateur astronomers..Version: 8.1.9

Made my phone slowThis update is soo cool, but it has made my phone really slow and unable to load other apps like facebook and that.Version: 3.2

ExcellentThis app is excellent. Robust and reliable. It may not be so detailed as some of the more professional apps but is an excellent introduction to the night sky and remarkably accurate. The fact that it doesn't need a cell connection or internet connection makes it extremely practical. It’s so good it can be used as a navigation aid for astrophotography. It certainly gets you into the close vicinity of objects for photography. if you mount your phone on top of your camera via the hot shoe adaptor the app will guide you to your chosen object using directional arrows on the screen. It works really well with none of the set up hassle of a goto motorised scope. Just tap the little compass icon once and it goes to work. Brilliant!.Version: 8.1.7

Superb, but some suggestions.I wish that I could have rated your product a 4.8 instead of integer 5, as there are two things I’d love to see. First, once I have searched for an object, please don’t unlock the search when I touch the screen again. Or give me the option to remain locked once I find something. It is very annoying to turn off the compass, type in something, find it, and then “lose” it when I tap the compass again. Another example is if I want to advance the clock a couple of hours to see where an object might be later. Second, I’ve been using your product as an aid in astrophotography. When aiming a 400mm lens, it’s been a lifesaver. That said, placing my iPhone flat on the back of a DSLR to aim it is OK, but it can be very awkward when something is high above the horizon (such as Andromeda as I write this). A “90 degree” viewing option would be extremely helpful so I can put my phone flat on the hot shoe of the camera or edge on to the back of it. Even a “mirror image” view, where I can put the phone across the filter ring of my lens and effectively look over my shoulder would be very helpful. All in all, a great piece of software..Version: 8.1.9

AwesomeGot this app so I could identify different planets and stars. works a treat and highly recommend it..Version: 3.0

My favourite appCan’t wait to share this with my son when he grows older..Version: 6.6

Am I using the same app? - EDITED*** please see my update below *** With all the great reviews, I must have downloaded a different app. I use several astronomy apps , but this is the only one that thinks east is west and north is south. I emailed the developer and was told to try the figure 8 trick, but I'd already attempted that several times. Upped my rating from 1 star to 3 since I did receive a response, but being off 180 degrees makes it unusable except for indoor couch sessions. *** Okay, I just reinstalled after 2 years of using other astronomy apps and it's sensing directions properly now. Whatever was causing the compass to be off has been corrected, so I'm giving it 5 stars since the other astronomy apps are wanting to milk me for money every opportunity they can and this app still continues to operate without further expenditure. ***.Version: 6.6

Fantastic appMakes the stars an even greater joy to watch!.Version: 5.1

A different way to see the darknessThis app is incredible. I have very rarely ever had a crash and I use it all the time. I spend a lot of time at sea and this don’t have Internet. It’s great to be able to spend nights out on the ocean learning about the stars you can see so clearly overhead. This app is mind blowing..Version: 6.5.1

This is amazingI am amazed at the time and effort put into this app. It was pretty cool once I saw this app and bought it straight away. I love all the information and the detail. I also really really like how the smallest stars that you see you have to zoom in and all of them are named..Version: 6.5.2

True magic!Awe inspiring! I can only speak in superlatives. The app is magical, for it brings the unreachable and unfathomable within reach and interactive. A huge thanks for the developers. You guys are legends!.Version: 6.2.3

Best for sky viewingI love this app. Of all the sky viewing apps ( and there are a lot), this is the best. I’ve had it for a few years & still learning new things to do with it.Version: 8.1.9

Curiosity didn't kill the cat!I was curious about this app and wondered why all the ratings were all five stars...it looked a little convincing but once I decided to buy it, I've never looked back! It is one of the best apps I have ever purchased, well worth the money and very educational too with detailed explanations about all the stars, planets, satellites etc. It's also very accurate, we went outside and everything was as it said on the app! I would give it 10/5 stars if I could! Everyone should buy this app! Makes me wonder about if we will ever get to visit Space one day and visit the beautiful night skies with the naked eye! :).Version: 3.0

Great and simple to useI also use sky safari plus which has additional features that I find useful, but for a super quick easy to use app , this is just wonderful. I use this when I’m volunteering on an observation deck where we have a 20 inch refractor and a 36 inch reflecting telescope that are open to the public on a regular basis. Sky guide ends up selling itself. When I show it to people they see how useful and simple it is and they’ve purchased it on the spot. I also like the feature for the international space station and other satellites. There are some things I’d like to see changed but overall I really like the product and I use it frequently. Note that the magnetic case on the iPad seems to throw the overhead view off by some degrees.Version: 8.1.9

Fantastic appI just went by what others had to say about this app too and I have to admit it is one of the best apps out there period. Highly recommend.Version: 3.0

The number #1 app for looking at SpaceSky Guide is one of the most coolest apps out there on the the App Store. When I go out camping with my family & we soak in all the stars, the galaxy, etc. Sky guide helps us to know how far that star is & why did they name it? The most helpful & fascinating thing is that you can be able to see if there is a Satellite, space junk, or any objects floating out in space. I used to think they were all Satellites but ends up most of it is old rockets. I totally recommend this app to anybody. This really works unbelievably great on the IPhone 8! Loving the new Calendars & the light pollution on the map!.Version: 7.0.4

Worth every cent!It might sound cheesy but buy the full version, go outside late at night, put headphones on and make sure Sky Guides music is ‘ON’. You can spend ages exploring the sky with this app! The ambience that the music creates makes it that much better too! Thanks :).Version: 7.1.1

LOVE THIS APPHonestly the best app for astronomy lovers, the app is very detailed, especially with the monthly subscription. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Lol. Love it, yas! 🌝✨.Version: 8.1.6

FabExcellent app, really interesting. Great learning tool for adults & children I enjoy showing it to people & seeing it peak their interest.Version: 6.5.2

The best appI do fully recommend it.Version: 8.1.9

Best App ever!!I really love how this app is designed and how you can see what types of stars are out their and listening to the calming music makes it a great experience and this app is worth every cent!.Version: 8.1.9

A SUPER MASSIVE App!I Love looking at the sky, stars, clouds, etc. Found Sky Guide. Not only do I get to follow the stars, constellations, moon, sun, planets, comets, satellites, but I can go forward in time, backward in time, there is information about everything that is listed in the sky in the App and I keep finding more ways to use this app. I just LOVE Sky Guide. My friends and neighbors (most of who don't have computers nor internet connections, as I live in a village with mostly poor farmers) come over to look with me. They love knowing what is that bright star in the sky, what is the planet, etc... It is highly Educational and worth the money. And it works with the wifi off. Best. Best. Best! I fully suggest this App for a great hands on course in basic Astronomy. 5 Stars!!! And now with SUPERMASSIVE as an option, it just continues to blow my mind. Seeing the Galaxies , Nebulas, Planets up close is breathtaking. This app was definitely made by people who Love their subject. And I Love this app. It continues to be Amazing! Amazing!.Version: 6.7.1

Love it.I find this app perfect. All those times when I used to look up and wonder what those things were are now gone. My old Dad would have loved this. I would like more action and info about junk and satellites..Version: 7.1.1

Sky guide.Fantastic app. Accurate , interesting and informative. Wish l had this when I was a kid. Also very educational for anyone who is slightly interested in looking at the sky or for anyone who wants to make this a real hobby.. If l could l would give this app 10 stars.. excuse the pun. Great app to get children interested in star gazing. 👏👏👏.Version: 8.1.7

HonestlyIf you like stars, satellites, meteors, comets etc... and a very easy to navigate app. There it is. it’s worth it. I had this apps for years. I should of write a review sooner..Version: 8.1.9

Who needs free astronomy gamesThis is the totality solar eclipse of astronomy games.Version: 8.1.9

Arcturus is my JAM! Why?....1. My homeboy Arcturus dominates the Booty (designated Alpha Boötis, Arcturus is the brightest star in the constellation of Boötes,)!! Lol. 2. Taking 4th! Place in the Mr. Universe (literally, lol!) Brightest Star contest is quite the feat (there were only like millions of other contestants to beat)! If the contest was limited to the northern celestial hemisphere, Arcturas would take the brightest grand prize 🌞⭐️🏆... 3. I know this and lots of other interesting bits of information about Arcturus as well as many other gems in the celestial heavens BECAUSE OF SKY GUIDE! Sky Guide is a very accurate, informative and intuitive application! Now when you look up to the night sky, break out the Sky Guide app and be prepared to be amazed..Version: 6.2.3

Amazing appIncredibly informative app with movement of planets and satellites in real time. Tap on anything you see at all and read all about it: bits of old rocket floating in orbit, stars, star clusters, nebulas, galaxies... all free. Awesome..Version: 8.1.9

My favorite fun appThe functionality of this app is astounding. Not only does it synch up with your location and which compass direction you are facing, showing you the sky as you hold it up and move around, but you can freeze the view, set a date and time for a view (like, your birthday) and locate specific stars, satellites, planets, constellations and other traditional heavenly bodies. I use it almost every day just to fly a little, and it tells me when the ISS will fly over and from what direction! As a science fiction writer the stats on stars has been invaluable in ensuring I don’t goof up important facts and it inspires me on dull days. No regrets, worth every penny!.Version: 6.6

Brilliant appAs a Graduate of Oxford University, using this app is the dream! From telling you the upcoming events throughout the years in space, to scanning the sky! It’s brilliant. 10/10 I highly recommend this app to anyone who loves space..Version: 7.1.1

Jean-PhilippeThis is a wonderful application.Version: 8.1.4

Best app everI absolutely love this app love watch international space station fly over looking at the constellations and finding peace in the madness of this world so thank you.Version: 6.6

Amazing!!Love this app!! Works across all my devices and works beautifully. Was worth every penny!.Version: 8.1.9

GreatGreat app. Few things that could be improved. I can find it hard to find catalog numbers on objects especially from the map usually end up going to google. Wish I could search an area of the sky and then use the visibility sorting would be awesome..Version: 8.1.2

Très bien !Élève la conscience sur ce que nous sommes ... !.Version: 8.1.9

Fun & informative for kids & adultsI wish this was around when I was a kid!.Version: 8.1.5

FunnI like how it lets me know about the space stTion comming Would a more than one hot notice ahead of time also like a 10 min then a 5 min a 60 min ahead of time would be nice I get busy an lose track of time Maybe better to Jane able to set three alarms Like one hour ahead of time then another about 7 mins ahead of the space station fly ouvrt I like iridium flares too It would be really nice to have the alarms for the iridium flares since they are so rare now Don’t under stand the ratings for how bright a sat might be passing over I I can not see it with my naked eye then it’s of no use to me I like to take my family out side to see things of interest to them A star does hold my 5 and 7 year old attention A moving light does It has to be able to be seen wirh the naked eye if not they will fight over binoculars and that will not make it a fun family thing to do Maybe a recommendation that says use a certain power binoculars or telescope to view satellites in orbit Or be able to detect a First and second list Those I can see with my kids with just the eyeball and how bright it will be or that it will be so dim Don’t waste your time I can see iss and can show my kids it easy when it’s over head Targeting of the iPhone is a little off tho But usually I can get close enough to spot it So that’s good Write me back if you do these mods Thanks.Version: 8.1.9

Thank You!Thank you for making such a beautiful and informative app. I’ve used this app for two years and it has brought me much joy to be able to not only get live updates about space but well constructed articles, and the ability to peer back into time all in one sleek and beautiful user interface. I have yet to see any thing like this come close to your quality of work in general. I’m 16 and this has forever changed the way I see the night sky. Keep up the good work, and look forward to anything else you guys make..Version: 8.1.9

Compass calibrationHi team, really enjoy your app. Have used for years and recommend. I’m Apple and wondering if there is a way calibrate the compass. Currently out and having to manually adjust each use..Version: 8.1.9

Understanding the night skyFantastic to be able to recognise constellations by using the charts, this app makes it so easy I absolutely love it 😍.Version: 7.0.1

A wonderful appWhenever I open this app, I feel like I’m travelling to the stars..Version: 8.1.2

Excellent app!I love this app n have told quite a few people about it. U just hold it (tablet with app on) up to ur night sky n it give s all the information! Thx! U can dig more thru it for most any info that u might want..Version: 6.7.1

Top apps everThis is one of the very, very few apps I have consistently and continue to routinely use since getting my first iPhone back in 2010, iPhone 4. It’s that good. I love the beautiful simplicity of it while being the most accurate of any other “star guide” app on the market. I love the explanations of each star, satellites, monthly news on what to look for in the coming weeks/months! I also REALLY appreciate the developers for not over-complicating the app with stupid subscription plans, ads and all the other grubby behavior so many once great apps have sadly adopted (and therefore ruined). Please keep it up and thank you for making such a fab app! My only wish is to see when certain lower atmosphere radio/satellites are spinning around over oceanic coastlines where lots of fishing occurs but I understand that is not exactly this apps “astronomical” intention. :D.Version: 8.1.9

Absolutely amazingSimply excellent!!!.Version: 8.0.5

Good but poor performanceMost parts of the app lag when scrolling on my iPhone X.Version: 7.1

Best value app everIf you only buy one app for star gazing buy this one, the new AR feature is superb. I have both an iPad Pro and iPhone 7+ and it works perfectly on both, I did have a small problem setting up iPhone, but totally sorted by using the troubleshooter after advice from the support team..Version: 6.5.1

XceptionalKool muzix too.Version: 6.6

BrilliantThis is the best App ever, it is excellent. One of my favourite features is the notifications which I have activated. The International Space Station alert blows us away. Once you get the alert, just hit the go to function (outside of course), point your phone where the App directs you to, and as long as the sky is clear, there it is as clear as can be, fantastic. If you want to identify stars, planets, and constellations, just scan the sky with your phone. The clearer the night, the more you'll see. "Buy It".Version: 5.1

Sky Guide ReviewSky guide is a Nice but is slightly boring. You should add more fun elements to the game. I do not use the app very often, but I enjoy when I do..Version: 7.0.4

BrilliantGives you names and constellations and you can zoom in. Also see those in Southern Hemisphere..Version: 8.0.1

Fantastic!This is a great app, would recommend! Very user friendly, easy to use and fun..Version: 4.2.3

WonderfulBrilliant app for learning what we have around us and where it is at any given time the compass makes it an astronomical map and if you use a telescope it’s a Great font of knowledge I love it.Version: 6.7.1

Welcome to the stars.Absolutely fantastic app, I use it to track the orbit of the international space station so I can watch it fly over my home, and it tells me in advance when the planets will be visible. Welcome to the stars!!!.Version: 8.0.1

AmazingI just sat outside for 20 minutes looking at the starts just alone without my phone wondering what stars where which. I saw a lot of the brighter stars and wondering how far and bright compared to the sun they were. I went into the AppStore looking to see what these stars are called and this app told me descriptions and what satellites or rocket bodies were above me that second. I learned that the rocket bodies that are now known as space junk were launched around 30-40 years ago by Russia. This app is very useful. I spent 1 hour outside with this app after just trying to find new things.Version: 6.5

So helpful!I was in the Northern hemisphere to holiday and my hostess who loves looking at the stars from the Swiss Alps showed me this app and I had to have it. I was up to speed about the northern perspective in minutes. Great App..Version: 8.0.1

Sky GuideSky 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..Version: 8.0.3

One of the best apps I ownAwesome! Just get it, you won’t regret it. I only wish I had more time to play with it..Version: 7.0.4

Superb, but would like to have specific notifications/reminders for meteor showersAs above.Version: 8.1.9

Into-stellar!!Great way to explore the heavens. Constellations appear with a superimposed artwork that captures your imagination (these can also be turned off in settings). Easily to reach information blurbs can be found along side each point of interest. These give you an insight into the background and current knowledge of the object; name, mythology and science information such as star type, size are provided in most cases. I have used this app for years and it will continue to encourage me out side and to look up! 5 celestial beauties out of 5!.Version: 8.0.3

Get itYou won't be sorry. Amazingly beautiful images..Version: 3.0

Absolutely brilliantThis app never fails to amaze. I've had this for about year and have learned and identified so much. The Solar eclipse update is fab. If you have any interest in the night sky ..... get it!.Version: 6.2.3

Simply brilliant.... Just makes me want to look more at the stars..A must get app... Do it now.Version: 1.1

A superb appWhat a great app this is. I have found great pleasure in roving the night sky with this. I used to use paper maps to see celestial objects when I was a kid. This is such a pleasure compared. Also tonight I watched the International Space Station sore overhead brighter than Jupiter exactly when and where the app predicted. I can recommend to anyone who has a sense of wonder for the big big picture of what is up there in the sky..Version: 6.6

Explore, teach, connect, and enjoy!If you know the night sky, this app immediately puts details at your fingertips. If you are somewhat familiar, it will dial you in instantly. You’ll be sharing it with those around you and hear sentences starting with “I never knew...” whispered in astonishment. Set up the alerts and learn the magnificence of the ISS as it wheels across the sky. Track the planets through the summer skies. Touch the info circle next to an object and learn about Messier objects or the original Greek myths they saw reflected in their heavens. Become a citizen of the universe. This simple app has become an important part of my life that has helped bind my family together..Version: 7.0.4

SuperThis app has expanded my knowledge and helps me realise space ain't just planets and garbage but that it's a life experience download best app.Version: 6.5.1

GordonovichStartfantastic!!!.Version: 8.1.7

Love!Been obsessed with this beautifully designed app for awhile now 😊.Version: 6.6

It’s goodI like this App because it gives you a chance to look at the stars on a cloudy day and find all the constellations much easier though I can’t struggle with that sometimes it is amazing game for kids that are into space and science because it gives you an idea of what space looks like up in the sky and made it looks like down on the ground there are many different ways they can use this app I really like it sometimes they can be a little bit annoying but I really like how it gives me a chance to look at the stars..Version: 7.0.1

This is fantastic!Amazing to see everything with this incredible guide. Thank you!.Version: 3.0

Really Neat!!This app is amazing if you love star viewing! It’s really fun to pull up the app at night and to see which stars you’re looking at. It’s amazing for viewing the slow rotation of the earth too, great for getting a better understanding of that. The graphics are beautiful, but what really makes this app is all the handy features on it. Bedsides showing you which stars are where, you can also select rockets, satellites, and the space station and it shows you LIVE where it is so you can potentially see it (if it’s currently visible in your hemisphere). You can also look up upcoming meteor showers and it will tell you which way to look! You can even see different electromagnetic waves through this lens filter type thing. There’s more than that, definitely worth the $2.99, and I neeeever get anything but free apps!.Version: 6.6

Love the watch complicationI’ve been using Sky Guide for a few years now. It’s a terrific tool to explore and learn more about the stars, planets and everything in between. I really like the watch face complication for infograph modular… As it shows the proper orientation of the moon as it passes across the sky. Much better than the native moon phase graphic. However...I’m now using the Siri watch face for which Sky Guide shows as an available 3rd party app. But no cards ever appear, why is that? I’m expecting to see cards appear at the right times ahead of sunrise/sunset and moonrise/moon set. When will this work properly? Much appreciated!.Version: 8.1.9

A must have.On holiday in Cornwall great tool to have with phone,you now know what you are looking at brilliant idea will recommend this app to anyone who is interested in the stars and planets..Version: 6.2.3

No Wonder It's Rated 5 StarsAbsolutely fantastic app for night sky gazing or just learning about stars, planets, galaxies, satellites and more. I spent over two hours with it upon first download and have barely scratched the surface. Along with everything else you'd expect you can scan the sky in gamma view, microwave view, ultraviolet frequency and others. Lots of great info on all sky objects and extremely easy to use. Very intuitive, nice help guide. Easily the best I've used on my iPad. My favourite option is the ability to either lock the gyroscope connection and use your finger to manually rotate E-W or Up-Dn Or unlock the gyroscope and point the iPad in any direction and ‘see’ the current celestial sky regardless of visibility. Excellent for understanding Altitude/Azimuth vs Right Ascension/Declination..Version: 8.1.7

Fantastic appI've only had it for a day but I'm addicted. This is a brilliant app that orients itself to your location in real time and space. Who knew there were so many satellites passing overhead almost constantly?! If you have any interest in what is going on over your head you will not be disappointed in this app..Version: 3.0

Great programFantastic program. I enjoy it.Version: 8.1.9

BonjourPas juste intéressant, important pour notre éducation..Version: 8.1.9

Buy this!But not if u have iPod touch cause it dont work but iPad and any iPod with built in compass.Version: 1.0.1

My favorite of 7 sky apps I own!Love this app. It’s user friendly. It’s beautiful. It’s incredibly (and interestingly) informative (but easy to navigate while getting access to all that amazing info!) It’s easy to find what I want in the sky and what’s not actually in my sky at that moment (but when it will be or when I missed it already). The augmented reality is kinda fun (but not often used by me to date)... To pack soooooo much into something so beautiful, informative, and easy to navigate is apparently quite a feat... as my other sky apps lose points on at least one of those key components... (and some more than one)... Hands down my favorite!.Version: 7.1.1

Best app aroundI’ve used this app for approx 5 years and it’s still the best out there.Version: 8.1.1

Amazing atmosphereOne of the best app purchases I ever made! Beautifully made and easy to operate. Very interesting and accessible information about the different planets, stars, galaxies etc. Also the graphic is really nice and the music very calming. I often use it in the evening in my dark room with headphones and check the sky out of the window. It’s kind of satisfying :).Version: 8.1.9

Great appThe best yet.Version: 8.1.9

InspirationalHave recommended this to many family and friends. Easy to use. Great info. Excellent presentation and nice calming music. Well done..Version: 8.1.6

Amazing educational tool and Astro photographyThis has been great to teach my girls about the stars and see their fascination. I regularly use it while out filming at night to choice locations for filming to maximise the position of the stars..Version: 6.0.2

Iridium FlaresAmazing app no doubt about that. I don’t get anymore notifications for iridium flares. Is there a bug that needs to be fixed?.Version: 8.1.9

Fantastic App!Since downloading this app I have had a lot of fun identifying stars in the night sky that I have always been curious about. One piece of improvement I would like to see which I think would make this app perfect is to have it show an outline of countries when removing the iPad below the horizon. That way we can see exactly where the sun, moon etc is in relation to other countries. Especially if we could see a name for each country....Version: 3.0

Can’t upgradeThis version, or my environment won’t let me subscribe . It fails to connect to iTunes. Love the app, want to get more from it but can’t.....Version: 8.1.1

Sky GuideFor a free program it’s brilliant as it’s loaded with great features that many others I have tried you have to pay for. I love the detailed explanations and Data regarding the planets, stars and Messier objects. Clearly the best one of the free astronomy apps. Can’t wait for a 2.0.Version: 8.1.9

Far and away the best app of its kindI’ve had this app pretty much since it was released. It is far and away the best stargazing/sky reference app available. It’s full of features and detailed information on everything- be it planets, stars, satellites, rockets, space debris, galaxies, constellations, etc. I recommend it to people all the time. Most importantly, when people start pulling their phones out to check out the sky at night, they always end up saying “wow which app is that?” and delete the one they had and download this one instead. That’s really all you need to know. Also something I like is that it doesn’t have the cartoonish feel of many similar apps. Really just can’t stress enough how much this app is better than the rest..Version: 6.7.1

Qualité supérieure et vaut l’abonnement proposéEnfin une application me permettant de ne rien manquer du ciel (mon ciel local évidemment) et de mieux gérer mon temps disponible pour mes activités d’observations et de photographie. Liens dynamiques avec la météo, la réalité locale. En temps nuageux, voyager virtuellement avec Supermassif (une carte du ciel profonde et détaillée proposée en option) remplace mes atlas 2000.0 Félicitations à l’équipe de conception pour la pertinence du résultat..Version: 8.1.1

Fantastic appAlthough in the camera view it’s not always properly lined up, it’s still a fantastic app all the same, well worth it 👍. The only negative I have about this app is the fact that it can’t clear the skies for me, really was quite disappointed with that..Version: 8.1.4

Dr. I.G.Reignited a fascination - this App is a spectacular experience - well done..Version: 8.1.4

MagnificentThe only non-5-star reviews of this app are from people with a broken compass on their iPhone, or who didn’t give the app permission use their location. Literally everyone else loves it, because it’s not just functionally great, the perfect educational plaything, it’s also aesthetically beautifully. It has one small bug, that it hangs up when you try to manually set the location to near the North Pole (say if you wanted to see how the dome of the night sky moves there...).Version: 8.1.9

Excellent app Sky GuideSky guide is beautiful and very well detailed in it’s information about the planets,stars, satellites, comets, nebula’s , there are extras witch I believe should have been included in the app , rather than having to pay to watch the deep space video and other detailed video’s that should be included! Other than that it’s great fun for curious space enthusiasts who love to navigate through the stars! We should add a category for earth like planets, and keep updating the information based off of what new things we are learning about our sky Including anything that could have an impact on earth. It’s an interesting place for learning! Thank You.Version: 8.1.8

Learning about space like a bossI was hoping for an app like this. I can learn how to identify the stars in night in style!.Version: 5.1

Worth it.It’s amazing, buy it for sure. I love almost everything but here’s a few things for the developers to note. I know you’ve worked very hard on this and I don’t doubt that at all, but just consider the following please?😁: 1. When we click on a planet, then the info tab, then swipe up to get the rotational planet on our screens, it would be cool to tap on it and see a surface view for planets we have pictures of, and if the rotation was more realistic rather than 30ish second day/ night cycles. 2. When we view the planet from behind, I’d love to see its atmosphere as we can see when we photograph a planet when the sun is opposite the planet from our view. 3. I can’t seem to find any moons of other planets? Maybe I’m not looking hard enough but I spent a lot of time looking for 4 of the most prominent moons in our solar system, those being the moons of Jupiter. I couldn’t see any but I was most disappointed to see I couldn’t zoom in on IO and look at the immensely complicated surface features... 4. I would consider maybe just raising the base price of the app instead of having us pay initially and then being slapped in the face with other payments to see “exclusive features”... Anyway, I love the app. I love the work the developers have put into it. I look forward to improvements and new features. THANK YOU!.Version: 8.1.1

Does what it’s supposed to and moreFirst off: I tried to find something critical to say, because I don’t usually believe 5-star reviews...I couldn’t think of anything. I have had this app for a while now (years), and I have really enjoyed being able to quickly identify any bright object in the sky that catches my attention. What I didn’t expect, but have also enjoyed, is the large amount of information on each object that is offered just by tapping on it. As someone who isn’t even a stargazer, I find myself getting sucked in almost every time..Version: 7.1.1

StarstruckI love this app, it’s pretty accurate, I will miss the solar flares next year though Highly recommend getting this one it’s totally awesome.Version: 7.1

Stars appThis is the best stars app out there. I've downloaded many only to be disappointed, and then have deleted them. I won't be looking any further. Cheers..Version: 3.0

The sky is fallingI love this app. It is bang on the money for being very accurate. I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in watching the sky.Version: 8.1.9

Fascinating AND a fun way to learn!What a brilliant app! I love star gazing anyway and I'm one of those people who feel the almost physical 'pull' on me whenever I look at them. Mesmerising 'seeing' the beautiful sky that is all around us..Version: 8.1.2

Saw the ISS fly over, space junkI was using it last night and a notice popped up saying the ISS was about to fly over. So I tracked it and to my surprise I could actually see it very clearly. I probably would have assumed it was just a plane without the app. So then I started looking for space junk of rockets and I could see a couple of those, too. This all in a major US city. Aside from that, it’s a good educational tool and I’ve already learned a lot about stars by using it. It tends to take a while for the compass to adjust but eventually it gets there and objects line up exactly..Version: 6.7.1

A must have!!!!!!!Very interesting to know what's going on over your head, very cool.Version: 3.0

Go to sky appI enjoy this app, it is great for a quick lookup and has good depth when needed. I wish There was a version for my Desktop..Version: 6.2.3

Totally awesomeThis app is totally worth buying! It’s so pretty to look at plus it has everything you’ve ever wondered about when it comes to star💫 gazing or finding out where our space stations are, without this app i probably wouldn’t have known Mars was so close to earth 🌏 the 1st time in 15yrs!! Being able to share the beauty of the universe and all that is out there amazing thank you ☺️ 🌟.Version: 6.7.1

Fantastic appLove being able to show my kids satellites and the planets at night.Version: 4.0.1

Excellent Informative AppThis is very entertaining and the alerts that it gives to see satellites and the things like the International Space Station give time to see the objects that might otherwise be missed. Great help when viewing unfamiliar skies in another hemisphere..Version: 6.5.2

Soo much better than SkyViewWhen I bought this app, I was expecting it to look a little bit better than the star-gazing app that I was using at the time: SkyView. When compared to Skyview, Sky Guide is clearly the more advanced application, as it has better quality. Its planet animations look stunning, along with a subtle, beautiful design to the overall app itself. It can be seen that the app was designed with the consumer in mind due to the many features included: pinch to zoom (which displays a richer, starlit sky closer up), a filter mode (allowing the user to see the universe through different light filters such as gamma, thermal, etc.), and finally the inclusion of AR capabilities that can map celestial bodies precisely with their counterparts within the app, gaining an immense amount of accuracy when star-tracking. All in all, I love this app and I definitely recommend it to all of those who are interested in the night sky..Version: 6.6

Star GazrAwesome app. I can find planets and other stars when I need to. Nicely done! Love the soothing music too. I like to know when the moon is on the rise as a photographer. No matter where I point the iPhone there is something interesting to see in the sky, even at the opposite pole. The descriptions and info on the different stars is laid out nicely. Don't hesitate to buy this app. Well worth it! 😉 5 stars!!!! ** The latest upgrade 9/17 is yet the best! Adding the live camera view of the horizon and sky gives this app another interesting dimension and way to see what is up in the sky where you are looking. I still ❤️ this app, get it - you’ll love it too..Version: 6.5

Great value app for all agesThis app is great, I use it for planning Astro photos and my kids use it to check for different planets. Recommend..Version: 8.1.6

The Best...I tried some star reachers, but this one is the best one..Version: 8.1.4

FANtastic!!!An awesome exploration of the night skies which offers reminders of upcoming sky-gazing events. This app has an extensive descriptions of nebulae and our galaxies. FANtastic!!!.Version: 8.1.9

Informative, fun and GORGEOUS❗️I’ve tried all the night sky apps on the App Store and this is by far the best. Not only is it the most drop-dead gorgeous, but Featured (the news feature) is also informative and just as pretty as the rest of the app. Not only does it have good, short articles about astronomical phenomena and skygazing tips, but it also has a monthly “The Sky in [Month]” articles that give you the highlights you can go outside and view for the month, with targets like planets hyperlinked such that when you tap them, the sky map rotates to bring those heavenly bodies into view. Nice! Supermassive is cool, too, though I haven’t used it much, so I’ll leave that to other reviewers. I just had to write a review right now because I saw Apple’s editorial about the app in the App Store just now and was irked at how little they said about it. This is a must-have app for anyone serious about astronomy or who just wants to have fun learning more about the universe..Version: 7.1.1

WowBeautiful, absolutely breath taking. We could spend hours star gazing with this app. Brilliant!!.Version: 2.1

Worth every pennyAbsolutely love this! If you like anything to do with space and the stars this is for you..Version: 8.1.3

Want to see a shooting star?My 3 year old son and I hear an alert on my phone: 6 minutes to an Iridium Flare. He calls them shooting stars. We drop everything and run outside, rushing to the darkest spot in the neighborhood we can find. It’s not that dark, but it doesn’t have to be. We point my phone to the sky and see the path the Iridium satellite will take and watch. A bright shining light grows suddenly in the night sky right where the app points us and his smile and sense of wonder grows with it. It’s over in a few seconds but we talk about it for the rest of the night. Thank you all for this little feature in an already amazing app. Thank you for these moments, and for introducing my son to the world beyond our world. If I could give you 6 stars for this review I would..Version: 7.0.1

Loved Astronomy since I was a kidSince I was in second grade and went to the planetarium, the constellations held a magical fascination for me! I remember this gentleman telling the stories that went with the “pictures in the night sky” and along with his mesmerizing voice was music similar to the ethereal music with this app. I enjoy this as much as I did then and I can relive that mystical and extraordinary experience in a way with this app and it’s information for each constellation, planet, moon and every wonderful thing I see when I look into the night and this time I hold it all in my hand! I highly recommended it for stargazing and learning about the heavens in sight..Version: 6.6

Perfect AppThis app shows me the part of the universal and I feel that human beings are so tiny compared with the universal. I love this app..Version: 6.5.1

Connecting us to the heavensI love this app, together with its cosmic background music. It’s easy to find the plants and stars you are looking for and information about them both scientifically and mythologically speaking. The graphics are great and I feel really ‘in it’ when I use it..Version: 8.1.2

Absolutely stellar!Love this app, so packed with info, and I love being able to identify heavenly bodies as I'm looking at them. Just amazing..Version: 6.2.3

A dream come aliveI’ve had this app for more than 2 years. And I’ve loved every single bit of it. When I was younger, I wanted to become an astrophysicist or an astronaut. I still do, but my path has now changed into a different direction. My dreams are now so far away, but this app made it closer than ever. The music, the feel. I cry because I love watching the stars and how the world always seems to stop whenever I stare up into the sky. It has become a place of peace for me, a sanctuary from this life. I forget everything, and just imagine myself staring up at a sky that isn’t blue but black. I wish I could ascend above the clouds and see that. And I might just do that. But for now, this app is perfect for a dreamer like me who looks up at the stars and wishes. 💜.Version: 8.0.1

ExtraordinaryBeautiful graphics, effortless UI and packed with useful tools that aid and inform stargazing for everyone; the customizable time and location, allowing you to explore the skies of almost the entire planet for a given time, is one of my favourite features. Unquestionably the best stargazing app I've used..Version: 7.1.1

Fantastic!This app has way more features than I thought! It’ll show you the names of stars planets, and other space structures and even provides articles on them. It tells you when they rise, set, and the best time to view them. This app even has a compass feature, allowing you to point your phone at a star and see which one it is! Sky Guide also has a Calendar feature that lets you know about upcoming events like what days planets will be most visible or when planets will be in close proximity to the moon in the night sky. I definitely recommend this app to space lovers like myself. I can’t get off this app!.Version: 7.1.1

Great constellation and planet guideI’m very happy to have found this app, I was a Boy Scout in my early part of my life and remember using acompasa and astronomy book to try to locate objects in the night sky. It was fun but lots of work. This app is as easy as it gets to find and learn of the lights in the night sky. Point your cell phone and touch anything on the screen and learn the name of the object and some interesting history behind the name. I can recognize and show my children and grandchildren and friends objects that we see but don’t appreciate until we learn what they are. I recommend this amazing app to both newbies and seasoned star gazers. Enjoy! Leo M.Version: 8.1.1

Loved this app!I love this app so much. It tells you all the stories about the constellations and helps you learn about the stars and informs you of many interesting pieces of information about everything in the sky. I was so pleasantly surprised. Very much worth the money. I also love the celestial calendar and news articles😍.Version: 8.1.9

Incredible updateI have used this app for ages as a reference for star naming and spotting but with the latest update this app is just incredible. Well done to the team behind this app, the new features like the calendar and particularly the dark sky map make this invaluable to the night photographer. If I could give this review 10 stars I would!.Version: 7.0.1

Wonderful AppLearn lots from this.Version: 8.1.9

Cool app !Skyguide lets you get up close and personal with the planets, stars, and constellations and alerts to cool Astro phenomena like iridium flares and meteorite showers..Version: 6.5.2

Still the bestAlways been a fan of this app, and it just gets better and better every time. Being a Supermassive subscriber, I now have access to 1.7 billion stars too... I’ll NEVER be able to even find those, fantastic work!.Version: 6.7
