    This app is a lot of fun but I can’t give it 5 stars unless they add Pluto to it.

    Honestly only downloaded this app thinking it has had stars. It wasn’t til my 3rd or 4th time going on the app that I saw venis. Just so happens venis was visible by the naked eye that day!!!! This app will have you doing 360s and going upside down looking at the universe from earths perspective!!!! I never ever write reviews but I have been on the app for like 45 mins so I have to compliment the creators.. ps I have never been so excited to look up or down at the stars lol
  • I don’t think this is right...

    By Boom1172 for instance has Jupiter in Scorpio but while I look thru the app it is in libra.... so what’s the deal? It seems to me from what I can find elsewhere it is in fact in Scorpio... The calibration seems kooky, I have good service on a new iPhone, Lame cause I’d really like to use this app and would buy upgrades too if I could trust it wouldn’t be lame, sorry but I gotta give it a 2....

    This app is absolutely beautiful. There are so much fanisating things to look at. Only downside, was the fact that I could only see 5 planets. Although the app can quite exquisitely track the planets/stars movement. Anyways! This app is AWESOME! And I will be severely recommending it to everyone I interact with in the foreseeing future.😊
  • Nice
