SkyView® Satellite Guide for Negative User Reviews

Add Star link ASAP please.That’s the only reason I’ve just got this and they are not on here. Full marks when they’re added..Version: 1.3.2

Lots of potentialI got this app while star gazing with my wife. Wanted to know what each satellite was that we could see zooming above. Unfortunately it does not do that. You have to try and guess what category of 8 the satellite might be. Military, communication, weather, etc. And then search the sky. Most of the time we could not find it because by the time we got to the right category it would be gone. This app is great for finding and learning about a specific satellite. But is frustrating for identifying that moving dot across the night sky..Version: 1.3.2

App requires a GyroscopeMaybe letting people know which phones the app works on BEFORE they buy your product would be a good idea! Only given 1 star as I can't use it to find out if it's any good! Glad I only wasted a few pence on it!.Version: 1.1.0

Ok but not integratedSkyview and Satellites are good programs but why are they not integrated with each other? They're sold as a bundle. Seems to me when you select one thing you should be able to get additional information from the other app but you can't. Must leave one app and go to the other app. Slow, awkward, unsophisticated. Satellites last update was 2014, getting a little stale..Version: 1.1.1

Missing featureMy device is iPhone 5 SE 128 Gb. I have just updated the app and I don’t like the ‘new’ version of Satellites as I like the old display of the earth with approaching satellites easy to see. This new update (in my opinion) makes this good app nearly useless to locate approaching satellites. With this edition the only way I can see to locate approaching satellites is to actually point your device at the object. Please bring back the global view with orbiting satellites - even as an optional choice of view to existing. I don’t see me enjoying or even using this app until it regains it’s ease of use. It is getting hard to chose a nickname that is not “used” Try it yourselves. Unhappy User Steve.Version: 1.3

They ruined a great appBefore the changes they made recently this was a cool app now it is the ugly twin of Skyview. It used to be a view looking at the earth so you could see any object circling earth with earth as the background, you could use your fingers and move the earth to find any object. Now the view is from the earth to the sky just like SkyView and you have to move your body around and point your phone to the sky to find the object you want to locate, that is stupid. Whoever first programmed this app a few years ago when I bought it was a genius. Whoever updated it recently is an idiot. Give me back the Satellite View I purchased not this SkyView clown I mean clone!.Version: 1.3

Bad update!!!So before, you used to be able to see the entire earth and scroll around to see the satellites in the sky. Now you CAN’T! Please fix this. You can only get a view from only where you stand and you have to move your phone around to find stuff. Very annoying. All there was is a simple button that changed from a personal view to an earth view. The button is gone! Please update it and add it back!!!.Version: 1.3

3 ratingWhy gave a three star rating, at first I was able to see the pictures of the debris now I only see the color dots for the debris and I can’t find how to set it again if that’s possible or else it would have been 5 rating.Version: 1.3.2

Doesn't workCan't tap things in globe view, screen doesn't rotate in AR view. Don't waste your money on this abandoned app..Version: 1.1.1

Don’t upgrade to this sadly:(I paid the money and here’s what I got; - satellites and rocket bodies that aren’t there. - a planet that is upside down to my gps geological location. - an inaccurate compass regardless of calibration or location. - the app when first viewed is super cool and exciting, this was great. - neat features and info but as I’m learning its data is possibly old and pointless. - sadly, not worth the dosh it costs to get it. :(.Version: 1.3.2

Upside downHi. I don’t know what planet you are on but it’s VERY VERY FRUSTRATING BEING UP SIDE DOWN WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO VIEW NEAR YOUR POSITION. THANKS DUDE..Version: 1.3.2

App no longer worksPlease update this app so it will work on newer updates..Version: 1.1.1

Missing a KEY featureAs others have mentioned, it s a great app with lots of content, BUT it falls somewhat flat on a key scenario - AR view. As user, here’s what I expect. I tap AR view and all satellites that I could possibly see are vIsible / highlighted in AR view. Often I see something that might be a satellite and I want to see which satellite it is, quickly. Unfortunately, to check all satellites possible, I need to flip between like 8 different categories in AR view (communications, navigation, etc) making this scenario extremely painful. The app also hasn’t noticeably changed or improved in years, so 3 stars. But I’d love to give it 5 stars if it can handle this use case!.Version: 1.3.2

PROBLEM WITH AZIMUTHWhile in AR mode the azimuth is frozen to north and will not rotate. Elevation works. Both azimuth and elevation is functioning in Skyview but not in Satellite guide. *** 2 months later and bugs still haven't been fixed. *** DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY***.Version: 1.1.1

DossapointedI was hoping this app would allow me to look up, find an object moving across the sky, then point my phone that way and voilla, identify what it was. Unfortunately, everytime I do, it says there's nothing visible. Umm, wrong. Its pointless to have to try to quickly check through each of the different types of objects to try and quickly find it. One would think it would show in the bbrightestcategory, or check no box and it would show all of them in your field of view. So far I find the app to be crap for what I wanted it for..Version: 1.1.1

New update removes worldviewWant my money back.Version: 1.3

Mode Planet OffWhere is the mode Planet?.Version: 1.3

Space xThe only satellites I want to see are the ones Elon musk is putting up there. NO STARLINK? Come on.Version: 1.3.1

Zoom is a bit weirdAs others have commented when you attempt to pinch to zoom or move it goes a bit whacky...I’m sure the developers can fix this however..Version: 1.3.2

Used to be good, but no longer updated.This was a great app, but it hasn't been updated in years (thus, missing tons of data, and the data that is there is outdated, so app no longer accurate). While the app continued to work, as of iOS 10, you'll get a system warning that the app will cause your iPhone to slow down and the developer need to update the app. Long story short, don't waste your money on this app..Version: 1.1.1

Wow- abysmal...What happened? No longer do I have a view of the earth , showing the map of the satellites and their paths across its view. This renders this app nearly useless. Just frustrating now. That’s all it is. One single essential button now missing. Perhaps it is only a bug affecting SE iPhones... if that is the case I can only pray you do an patch that resolves it. If it is a new “feature “ then the app is no longer of any use..Version: 1.3

Great interface - sadly plagued by annoying bugMy personal favourite satellite tracking app - interface is informative and concise. Sadly has a very frustrating bug when zooming that causes the map to move unpredictably. Makes the app almost unusable. Hope and update to squash this sucker is on its way!.Version: 1.3.2

!!!! PLEASE UPDATE !!!!Will not run with IOS 11. Update long overdue. 5 star app otherwise..Version: 1.1.1

It's OKGreat when you are using your camera to point to the sky to detect a satellite. Not so great when you are trying to zoom in to anywhere on the world - seems to go a bit crazy. A function to restore the view to north up would be handy too..Version: 1.1.1

Very confusing, no directions on how to use this appI got this hoping to point it at the satellites I see in the night sky and be able to find out what they are. It does not seem to work that way. Such a waste of money, I can’t get it to give me any information unless I already know what type of satellites I want to see??? Such a waste, it really should come with specific instructions on how to get it to work. Looking for a refund.👎.Version: 1.3.2

NO STARLINKGot this app to see the most famous satellite project in the world STARLINK unfortunately I’ve been duped it’s doesn’t seem to have any new satellites! Very disappointed! PLEASE PLEASE UPDATE! 🌌🛰⭐️.Version: 1.3.2

Search Function BrokenTry to search for Satellites that I know are in the database, but the app says "no results". For example with the Saudisat satellites: type "Saudi" into the search bar, and you get "no results". However Saudisat SO-50 is in the database, you just have to browse through all the categories of Satellites until you find it; but you can't find it using the search tool. This is a serious impediment to using this app. Try searching for ISS or Zarya, and you get "no results". This would be a 10 star app if the search function worked..Version: 1.2.2

No Starlink SatellitesSurprising that there are no Starlink satellites on the apps database. Also a golden opportunity lost not to have details of the BepiCombo Earth flyby. Nice UI let down by lack of content..Version: 1.3.2

Still does not work with iOS 11Waste of money and time. Keep up or get out of the business of app development..Version: 1.1.1

Missing this app.I really miss this app since I updated to iOS 11. I hope you have plans on making it compatible soon..Version: 1.1.1

Buggy on 6s plusI emailed some time ago but still no update to fix the bugs that pretty much cripple using this app on the iPhone 6s Plus. It's a shame as I had high hopes after using their wonderful star gazing app. Fingers crossed they update this app soon! Then I would rate it much higher!.Version: 1.1.1

Iso11Please we need updates to work on iso 11!.Version: 1.1.1

Outdated satsLooking for recent Launches and the satellites are not listed. I have found the data is not current. I would presume 10 plus yr old I would not pay for again if I had known data was so old.Version: 1.3.2

Nice app, but old satellite data?As with SkyView, the app is lovely. But the satellite data seems old, eg not showing SpaceX’s TinTin or more recent Starlink sats. As an example, latest Arabsat in app seems to be 4A, so not showing Arabsat 5 from 2010 or Arabsat 6B from 2015 or Arabsat 6A in 2019. Would be great to see more recent data..Version: 1.3.1

Not goodDon't buy this one if you have the other one this was just a waste of money.Version: 1.1.1

Please UpdateThis is one of my favourite apps. I've been using it for 4 years. Please update it to 64-bit so we don't lose one of our favourite apps!.Version: 1.1.1

So close to being 5 StarsHonestly it looks amazing. And is very useful if you want to see where a particular satellite is in the sky in real time. Unfortunately the search by text function seems not actually search satellites. Even with that deficiency it would get 5 stars from me if you could just set up multiple favourite categories. Better yet if it could let you browse satellite constellations like Argos which is made up of satellites with very different names. When you read the description it does say whether a satellite is Argos, but the link takes you to an unrelated satellite by the same name. I think this deserves more than 3 stars and I do not regret the purchase but these issues should be fairly easy to fix and vastly improve the app for anyone who really needs to know satellite location in real time. Footprint would be a good addition as well for anyone doing satellite communication. That combined with more sophisticated satellite management could justify a higher price “pro” version. It is cool to see all the satellites I’m not specifically interested in, but I would rather choose between favourite groups I choose than categories of hundreds or thousands of satellites at a time..Version: 1.2.2

Ok but...I used to use satellite tracker and the thing I liked about it is it showed up coming near passes and the elevation and azimuth but this application doesn't do that and it would be a nice bonus. I read somewhere that it supposed to pop up with an alert when you have an upcoming near pass of anything in your favorites especially the international space station which comes straight down my street. Does it do that or is that my imagination?.Version: 1.1.1

IncomprehensibleNo directions given, there's a tutorial but all I could manage was to reset it, not view it. Strange.Version: 1.3.2

Starlink satellites can’t be found.Apart from missing starlink Satellites, it a fun app. Pity. For this reason I can’t recommend..Version: 1.3.2

Still no Webb TelescopeThe Satellite and Skyview apps are good, but major items like the Webb SPACE Telescope are missing. The App’s data must be really outdated, which is really a bummer. While Skyview is one of the best astronomy apps there is to view planets with, planets have been a round for a while. Humans launch satellites a little more frequently than planets are created, how about an update for one of the most important and significant events in astrology like including something as huge as the James Webb SPACE Telescope. It’s only been a decade or more in development, launched months ago, and now configured and tested and sending pictures back to earth. You want to fall over, then include the Web SPACE telescope and some of it’s hot new pictures. The universe is getting old, let’s do it while it’s still here :).Version: 1.3.2

Please fix GPS issue (very disappointing)I though that if you’re charging for an app, it would be 100% functional. The GPS setup doesn’t work in automatic or in manual..Version: 1.2.2
