    I used to love this app until it froze about a year ago, now I am stuck looking at northern constellations and cannot look at the whole sky.

    This app was great but for the past 6 months or so has no longer been accurate for me. When I hold it up it doesn’t line up with where the planets actually are. Used to be very accurate.
  • Awesome app, suggested improvement

    Great app, best one that I could find. Two suggestions for the team for a future update: could you add 2 lines? One representing the ecliptic plane, the other representing the celestial equator That would be awesome!

    I’ve learned so much about our night sky from using this app most evenings! It’s so easy to use. I especially like the sightings feature so you know what to look for & when each night.
  • Draco

    It’s literally stuck on the Draco constellation. While I’m as big a Harry Potter fan as the next guy, this is just unacceptable.
  • Excellent, straightforward sky map

    Now this is exactly what I wanted in a “sky map” type app. Doesn’t come after you for a subscription you don’t need like a cousin with a bad habit. The UI is consistent and straightforward, and does not obscure the view at all in landscape orientation. Offers a good amount of information. I like it a lot. I tried out the lite version first, and was happy to pay once for the full version because it’s exactly what I needed. Thanks for making this app
  • Excellent aid.

    Easy to use when looking for something specific. Easy to point to get an ID on an object. I can change viewing options to keep having a fresh experience with yhe app.

    Hello, I leave a 3 star review for many reasons and won’t list them all. Main reason is, contacting the company. I’d love to talk about your VR next steps and what you’re doing for it. Would love to explore space in VR within this app.
  • So fun
