  • Perfect Stargazing App

    By Noncenx
    I’ve had this for over a year and have used it 2-3 times a week. This makes it easy to quickly identify planets and stars. Normally don’t review apps but changed my mind after I recommended it to someone. Figured if I liked it enough to recommend it should get a positive review.

    It's very helpful and fun it gives star names and something about it. You can see planets and constellations too.
  • It’s great but the photos won’t save

    I really love this app and it teaches me a lot about the universe but every time a take a photo and want to save it, the app crashes. I hope this bug gets fixed as soon as possible!
  • Wow.

    Absolutely enjoyable! Fun to go out in the evening with my phone, explore and enjoy the skies and learn what I’m looking at! This app has been fun to share with our friends and family. It’s a treat every time I use this! Thanks.

    I downloaded this app hoping to see constellations identified using the app. However, even though I followed the very brief instructions how to orient my device it could not identify the four basic directions. The app said I was facing north when I was facing west. I was unable to find any help with in the app it self.
