    I use this all the time. I live in the woods and enjoy learning about what I’m seeing in the sky at night. Worth the purchase!!
  • Upgrade ruined my app

    By Virgie 639
    I loved the free program so much that I decided to purchase the upgrade. However, the upgrade ruined the app. It is an utter mess. Everything I was able to see is no longer available to me. There is no help available to help me to fix the issues. I’m upset.

    My husband and I both enjoy using the SkyView app especially with our grandchildren. It’s fun, interesting, informative and educational.

    I’ve had this app for over a year and it’s great. It’s amazing how detailed it is. Well worth the $2.99.

    I had the free version for years and when I got my 4 year old into Astronomy and showed her this on my phone, she always wants to view this app with me. I purchased the full version. She absolutely loves this. I’m absolutely depressed to see the amount of space junk we have allowed though.
  • Nice app but compass gone

    I enjoyed the app when first downloaded but when I bought the full version the compass disappeared. I went to settings. The compass app is checked but no compass. I turned music off and it comes back on. A little disappointed. The settings do little.

    The kids and I love this app. Would it be possible to add large/viewable asteroids or comets to it? That would be cool!

    I paid for this app on my iPad. The AR does not work at all. The app opens and view is locked, none of the stars or objects move to give the AR experience. DO NOT BUY THIS APP!!!! COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY!!! TOTAL SCAM!!!
