Sky Guide makes stargazing simple. Just hold it overhead to automatically find stars, constellations, planets, satellites and more. With so many fun and powerful features, there is something for all ages and experience levels! Is it a star or the planet Mars? Knowing what's up in your night sky is now effortless with Sky Guide. Hold your iPhone or iPad up and Sky Guide automatically aligns itself to the stars above you—no setup required. Have you ever wished you could recognize the constellations but didn't want to study those paper star charts? Sky Guide's augmented reality (AR) mode makes learning your way around the sky clear and effortless. Whether you're in search of the constellation Virgo, the Andromeda Galaxy or the next big meteor shower, Sky Guide is jam-packed with information and rich graphics that will satisfy the most curious minds. Voyage to the past and future with cinematic time controls. Know where the Moon will be later in the evening so you can capture that perfect photo. See what the sky looked like the moment you were born or be an eyewitness to history's greatest comets. It's a star! It's a plane! No, it's a satellite! Sky Guide features hundreds of bright satellites for you to identify and track. You can also receive notifications whenever the International Space Station flies over your location.

    I have all of the upgrades and this is one of my favorite apps to use. EVERYONE loves the app when I show them things. If I use my iPad pro... I lose it for a few hours.
  • The Best!

  • Privacy policy too liberal

    By TheRepairman
    Recommend deleting and not using. Data collection performed by app, according to the published privacy policy, could be quite harmful. Developer needs to remove unnecessary spying features. The policy does not limit geolocation tracking to operate app but to send adds and sell your info. “If explicit authorization has been provided, the User’s location data may be tracked by this App.” Developer response below is indicative of poorly worded privacy policies. Why is the current privacy policy not posted in the App Store? Are customers supposed to guess why and when their geolocation data is fuzzed to 5km? How long is it maintained? Is it sold? Why is the collection necessary. Delete until the developer gets serious about your privacy. I will update review when I’m notified of a proper policy that is in concise English and fully comprehensible.
