  • Used to be #1

    By Lor Dars
    This app was hands down the best app ever. It brought space to our hands. I don’t know what changed, but there hasn’t been an ISS alert on my phone in over 6 months. Or any other piece of flying space junk. I’ve verified this with other users of Skyguide. They’ve stopped. It was crazy cool to watch things fly by. So sad.
  • Sat warning time

Be able to see So far can only see ISS Maybe 1 sat in orbit one time Need to have it show me what I can see and what I can’t Maybe color coded I did see a iridium flare 3 times and that was nice Thanks

    I’m crazy about this app. Love the way it navigates the sky, showing all the visible and invisible constellations. I’m constantly referring to it.

  • Won’t update

    By smockdoc112
    I am so tired of the app not updating. My phone has been trying to update the “bug fixes” update for months. Uses data and battery power constantly. Quite frustrating. Please respond with a fix to this problem. Thank you. Otherwise, I have been happy with the app.
