    Not bad for a free app, I have only found one better than this, it’s called google sky but apparently is only available for android, this is the best I could find on iPhone.
  • Best app I ever used

    I think you should get this definitely get this app !In my opinion I think you should get this app since I think it’s very useful at night to look at the all of the stars and planets on the sky.Also I think that this app can actually teach you a little bit about space. P.S I think that this app could help you look and learn the different names of different satellites while you don’t need to go to space and you could just stay home . P.P.S I think that this app is free and that this app it’s wonderful and helpful for kids and also adults.🧁🐶👍

    Consistently amazes me! Thrilling and easy to use—allows my son and me discuss the important issues instead of the garbage thrown our way! What a beautiful unique universe we occupy 🙌🏻💓✌🏻

    Alright, first of all, I’m willing to bet actual money that this app is a success!!! Watching a DragonQuest IX female luminary dance monsters’ minds out the window may be pretty cool, but in my opinion this entire app is the epitome of beautiful!! Remarkable job on this app; I mean, you can explore beyond Planet Earth, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME, DUDE!!!
  • Fun exploring
