  • Review

    By mad dog OK
    I love the music and everything I learn
  • I was wrong, app is still amazing

    By Widget North
    I recently posted a negative review about the subscription model not providing the features I had prior to the update. Turns out that the features I liked still existed but were in a new place in the app. The developers contacted me and helped me realize the mistake. Great support was given and I couldn’t be happier!
  • Amazing

    By Sfreecity
    The detail and beauty of this app are truly exquisite! It appeals to both novices and star nerds. Flawlessly done and much more superior to any star app I've seen. As inspirational an app as the story behind it! A must buy. The time function is my favorite feature!

    This app is truly one of the best apps I’ve ever used leisurely. I truly enjoy the app and use it often. I go out for walks with my wife and kids in the evening to enjoy the constellations; in addition to all space above has to offer….
  • Disappointing upgrades

    By Cwo911
    I’ve been using Sky Guide now for several years. I just paid for the full upgrade and I’m very disappointed with the recent upgrades to Sky Guide. I used this app almost nightly to track satellites. It use to be so easy and simple to select what we’re visible and sort them by magnitude. Now, I can no longer do this without having to search through several different categories which makes this app practically useless. Please review your upgrades and return your satellite search procedures to what they were before the upgrade!
  • I love it you need to get it.
