This app is amazing. We use it a lot especially on holiday. My kids loved watching the international space station fly over. It’s easy to track planets, stars , satellites....hours of fun.
This is an insane app I think it’s 5 star . Great job making it .
Impress your friends with astronomical observations! Be the the Stephen Hawkins of group!
Love be this app, lots of great info and notifications. Can not get the AR to work for the life of me and in so, downgrading my rating. If this got fixed I’d be 5 star!
The music is like the music in the game EvE Online
I have not even scratched the surface with this app but it continues to amaze me.
It’s wonderful,as i when am driving on the road at night time,and enjoying the beautiful midnight blue full of brilliant stars blinking on the deep of sky,and sometimes,watch the space station, cruising the sky ,just wonderful!.
This is one of the most amazing apps I’ve had. I love the sky, so the app helps me learn and gain more knowledge. I’m a lover of Astrology and Astronomy. to sum it up, one word is needed. AWESOME!! 🥰😁💯
This App is way Underrated. Period. The Data, The Spectrums, The Infinite Wealth of Knowledge... Right There. Thanks to All Who Contribute to this Diamond in the Rough!
I was in the Northern hemisphere to holiday and my hostess who loves looking at the stars from the Swiss Alps showed me this app and I had to have it. I was up to speed about the northern perspective in minutes. Great App.
Amazing app, imagine it with VR Goggles.

Doesn’t have very basic capabilities such as display the celestial poles or radial lines which basic free apps have. I’ll be asking for a refund!
This app has been dam amazing and only getting better with time. It has helped me plan my Astrophotography shots and timelapse’s with ease and has always worked flawlessly. Amazing work from the devs. Now with all the info and upcoming events. Well done 👍
Great app and greT music
