    5 Stars for “Age 4+.” Educational amusement for all ages. Lots of eye candy. WARNING If you get serious with it, you will be frustrated. The gyroscope drifts and the text indicates the wrong time to look for an event. You will look in the wrong direction at the wrong time and may miss the International Space Station flyover. Without knowing the fail was in the app’s limitations, you may give up which would be very unfortunate. SkyView is not intended as an accurate science instrument. It is a very nice educational toy.

    I’m writing this review just because of how amazing this app is. I’m a kid who loves Astronomy, and takes it to long lengths. Just this Christmas, I got my first telescope! The Celestron 114 az Explorascope! I downloaded this app originally to see where my favorite star, Capella was located. Turns out, it had spot on location. I then got the full version, and have been using it on a weekly basis! This is an amazing app, and I look forward to using it for studying nebulas, planets, etc! I love this app mainly because I have been studying astronomy for about 5 years now, and have gone from knowing the basic 8 planets, to knowing the official names for several stars, galaxies, nebulae, and several other celestial bodies. This app is awesome for star gazing, planet watching, and exoplanet tracking! If you need a trustworthy, stable, easy to use app, download this for sure! My favorite part about this app is the mini lessons it gives you whenever you tap on a star, planet, nebula, star cluster, galaxy, you name it! I’m never downloading any other astronomy app! Thanks a bunch!! :)
  • where are the rocket bodies??

    By Frustrated and over this game
    so far I’m livening this app... only thing is there seem to be no rocket bodies above the horizon.... there ear dozens below the horizon... so it stands to reason there would be an equal number above as well...
  • Love this app
