  • Excellent.

    Detailed, accurate and nice to look at - the best night sky app I’ve used.
  • No difference from free app

    By KimV009
    Maybe it’s me, but I can’t see the difference between the $1.99 app and the free app. Disappointing
  • This app is so much fun

    I have so much fun using this app; probably my favorite app of all time!
  • Enhances enjoyment of a starry evening

    By JTKracing
    Simple, yet very complete, for the stargazer who wants to learn more about what's "up there".
  • Great product

    Question. Why do you see so much more space debris ( rocket bodies and satellites ) when you look thru the earth?
  • I love this app!

    By Grasshopper 117
    This a great app, I love to see when the planets are visible. Can you add Eris to the solar system list please?
  • Terrible

    By bignick2010
    I paid the money for the app, just to open it and find that the app dont work on my device. Im completely dissatisfied with this
  • Just great

    By AlecBausch
    Everywhere I go I have a reason to pull out my phone and look up. Pretty cool to learn when it’s not a great day to look at stars, but when you are in a place where you can see it’s amazing to use, too. Would recommend the premium purchase too
  • Doesn’t work at all for me

    By NKA3377
    I got 4 people to download this app mine is the only one that doesn’t work. I’d love my money back since I go the paid version! But good luck getting in touch with anyone
  • It’s not working any more :(
