  • Won’t Calibrate

    Had this app for years. For whatever reason the app won’t calibrate now. Everything else works but the heading remains on north.
  • Love it

  • Not optimized for newest iPhones

    This app is fantastic, only problem is it’s not optimized for newest iPhones (X and above). In night mode the screen turns red which is great, but the white bar remains at the bottom rendering the feature nearly useless.
  • I Literally Wanted an iPhone so I Could Use this App

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

    Download this app! You will not be disappointed! Love this app! I have shown many friends even strangers the cool stuff about this app. I love to learn little “‘tid bits” of information about things. This app is perfect for it. Thank you! Please UPDATE!

    It’s a new user I can really recommend so far the app. It is user-friendly and easy to orient but just to prepare when the next possible object is visible in front of you and the alarm is not working I don’t know the reason anyways thank you.
  • Every time I use it...

    #MeanwhileKyle: I like to ditch the ambient noise, drink expired PeaCockCoffee from a tube, spin myself around five times, fast, lie down real fast and point to the first thing I see. It might be on the other side of the world, but to me, it’s just TopLoader Dancing in the Moonlight.
  • Too much clutter

    By Myopic Ted
    If I point my iPad in any direction, the view is so cluttered with stars that can’t be seen with the naked eye, I can’t identify the visible stars.
  • Good, but...

    doesn’t seem like it’s supported anymore - sparse updates, and no Neowise. It’s a shame, because it’s a great core app.
