    This app is amazing. It shows everything from distant star clusters to rocket bodies. There are lots of features and settings to personalize your experience. Great educational app.

  • Doesn’t work with new updates

    By Seanscythe
    iPhone X, latest update installed. Will not calibrate at all. The viewer is stuck in one position and won’t move. I’ve uninstalled and tested on another phone with same IOS and the same thing. Very disappointed
  • Good app

  • The best app I’ve ever purchased

    This app is fantastic. Everything about it is marvelous I always used to appreciate the sky but this made my love for it grow tremendously. I can now locate which planets are which and the bits and pieces of the constellations in the sky when before the app I would only erroneously guess. The app has two modes. One where you download it for free and the other where you pay something like 1.99. Both versions are fantastic. But if you are willing to put some money into this it’s even better. The sky is the TV of the universe (with God as it’s broadcaster) and it’s important that we pay attention to it. Psalm 19:1 “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”

    I only paid for this to be able to use on my Apple Watch as the app description stated it was good for. However, it was misleading and does NOT work with the watch.

    I love skyview. I love star gazing and this app perfectly helps with that. I love that it shows everything you want to see. Even some of the smaller things that aren’t planets like rocket bodies is so interesting. Love the app. 10/10.
  • Music stopped working

    By cordelllia
    Not as exciting to use without the ambiance of the music. Stopped playing when enabled. Sigh
