    I am so in love with these apps just from the short time that I have had them!! Super inexpensive comparatively and the calibration is perfectly on point. I am excited to be able to have detailed information at the tips of my fingertips anytime I am stargazing. Thank you for developing such a neat and informative application. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    I like the app. Would like to be able to type in search bar using English, not Greek alphabet prefixes. This necessitates installation of a Greek Keyboard. A little difficult to click on the intended object at times, particularly on an iPad 2. It’s a bit easier on iPhone 7+ but I like the screen size better on the iPad due to my poor eyesight. This is not a negative review as I enjoy the app. Rather just some suggestions to make it simpler to use.
  • I love this app

    By nwruss1
    This is probably my favorite app to use, and maybe the only one on my phone that elicits a ‘wow that’s cool’ response to everyone I show it to. Why anyone wouldn’t have this on their phone is beyond me. You just open it up, point it at the star/planet/object you’re looking at, and it identifies it for you. That’s it. Shows what’s below the horizon too, aka what may be visible in a few hours. I’ve had this app for years and it’s never crashed or failed to open. For my needs it’s perfect. I recommend this to literally everyone who’s blessed with vision and has even the slightest curiosity regarding what’s in the sky.

    By Hardw00d
    I travel a lot so it’s great to pull this app out and take a look at, then verify what I’m seeing in the night sky. It can surly help pass some time while being informed and learning at the same time. I recommend it all the time. Thanks for creating it.
  • Killer App

    Skyview is a must have app for anybody interested in knowing what’s going on in the heavens. All of my friends had to have it after seeing what it was capable of at a recent party. Thank you!
