    Paid for this app. It was on the Apple Watch and now it says it's unavailable and it's needs updated. There is no available update. This needs to be fixed...

  • Learned so much more!!

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

    By Rushing spirit
    It seems that it is mandatory to see the app with augmented reality on. I try to shut it off go back to the app and it automatically turns itself back on. That’s annoying, I love the app and want to give it a five star rating but the settings won’t let me because it’s not just the augmented reality. there’s a couple of other settings that no matter how many times you shut them off they go back to being on. I paid for the app I downloaded the app you give us the options to have it on or off and yet we don’t get to utilize those options it seems forced upon us. And also can you bring the gyroscope back to align the app the way you have it now doesn’t always work easily. If it’s not broken then don’t fix it. I really do love the app I think it’s amazing but if you could do those two things; I would appreciate it. Then somebody else mentioned about searching the surroundings without moving the phone that’s a fabulous idea

    This app amazes me every time I use it. It is informative, exact and just plain fun to use. I use it as one of the tools for researching and planning night sky photography. Highly recommend.
  • So much fun and exploration!!

  • Best app ever

    By sqeneqa L.
    I really love this app, I am very interested in astronomy and to have an app that tells you where ever star and constellation and planet is in the sky is wonderful. Plus, it has sightings that tell you what you can see now and you can see satellites and space stations.
  • Love it

    At first I was using the Lite version (for years) and LOVED it. Recently I decided to upgrade to higher version and all of a sudden my compass doesn’t work. The app doesn’t pick up my proper directions so I’m always having to recalibrate upon opening and again if I click on an object in the sky.
