  • Small review but true

    Great app worth the money
  • Fun and educational

    By Olswampfox
    I enjoy seeing what’s in the sky and the identification of the heavenly lights. The only problem I have is that the location are off a bit and centering them is difficult. I have tried to sync them on the app but it’s difficult to maintain the view.
  • Inconsistent

    The concept of this app is cool. But the app doesn’t work effectively. When you aim to the sky it jumps all over the place. One second you have the location of Mars & the next thing you know, the app jumps and Mars moves to the other side of the planet. Very aggravating.

    A great app to use for in-depth as well as casual observation of our universe. Easy access to information on all that we know is out there.

    It’s so much fun to be able to see all these stars and planets, I always try to find polaris and ursa major and minor.(the big and little dipper).
  • Glitched

    This app did work before but now fixed on one spot and doesn’t rotate. This is trash!!!
  • Suggestion

    If I could click on lights like street lights in my neighborhood and tone it down like clicking on red eyes while editing photos that would be great. Think about it.
