  • Cruise disappointment

    By SoCalguy333
    I tried to use this on a Caribbean cruise. Even though i had access to latitude & longitude. The app doesn’t allow entry. We stopped at Jamaica. The app lists 3 cities to choose on Jamaica but not the one we landed at. Any way, a big disappointment.
  • Amazing App

    By Kodiakteddybear
    This is truly an amazing app! Suggestion, I’d be willing to pay for a feature that tracks celestial events such as Comets & meteor showers. Could this be possible?

    I like this app, I down loaded it while in a area with out any light pollution and it was amazing what you could see. Cannot believe all the space junk up there though! Fun to see all the satellites and the space station.
  • Issues

    I love this app! But it seems lately it needs to be calibrated/corrected. Everything is way off. When I’m looking at the moon, I have to aim my phone almost in the opposite direction for the app to show the moon. Needs to be fixed. But otherwise this app is awesome!!
  • Could not be Better!

    By Austin is music
    Have watched the Skys for 50 years, but in the last few have been watching with the Grandsons. SkyView makes it a joy for all of us. Simple for the old hands and newcomers alike to stay interested and learn of totally new observations. Recommend to anyone!
  • This is a wonderful app

    By Shikarina
    This is a perfect app for helping identify the different constellations and planets. For example, before I would make an educated guess on planets etc now I know for certain what I’m seeing. This is great for kids to learn about the sky too. Keep up the great work
  • Absolutely amazing

  • Educational and Fun
