    One of the rare times I "buy" the premium features not for the premium features but rather to "tip" and support the developer!
  • Always loved this app😻

    This app is great to see special events happening near you, with also the great access to knowing EXACTLY when they happen. Buying the full version is definitely worth it, and if you're anyone like me, you want to see the solar eclipse in the real world, and the virtual world too.👍👍👍👍
  • Astromazing!

    This app is so awesome! I sit out at on my back porch at night and scan the night sky to see what I can find. It's very informative and just all out fantastic!

    The only downside is the incredible amount of junk that is also in the sky (defunct satellites, rocket bodies) that you can also "see" with the app. Has an interesting augmented reality feature.
  • Wonderful!
