  • Ok, but lags a lot

    By Star gazer56
    Sometimes it’s decent. Not a fan how it prioritizes constellations over planets/the moon/stars, but I can get past that. The constant lagging though. Especially if you zoom in (to focus on a star/planet/the moon it simply freezes. I’m on an iPhone 15 pro, so hw bit the issue. Also the music is extremely obnoxious. Not sure I would recommend at present. Especially as a paid app (with in app MTX!)
  • Cannot disable notifications

    By YourAppIsBaaad
    Please make a proper way to disable notifications. I have 60 notifications on this app I don’t care about. Besides that, solid app worth buying.

  • Opinion of a 7 year old

    By Roll surfers
    Ability to see a lot of planets,stars,comets and asteroids.
  • It would be nice to see just satellites

    By Gsekbcqyjvxwyhvdy
    I’ll pull this out when I see what looks like a satellite overhead but unless it is the ISS I have no luck finding what I am looking at. It would be nice to have a filter for just satellites or planets too.
