  • Great app

    By jbiebs2.0
    I didn’t know much about this app before I went all chingy with small change and snatched it up for 2.99. This app is worth the the money. Now get on out there and count all your lucky stars!
  • Best APP Ever

    Love that you can follow the stars, planets at any time. Great for the kiddos and grand kids too.
  • Lost in space

    By Eeegaads
    I must be missing something as it doesn’t work at all. Compass on sends me to the other side of the earth...with the compass off, sometimes I can move around the sky but most times I can not. Does not do anything when holding my phone up to tonight’s full moon.
  • Great!!!

    By uss paraclete
    Great for answering all my questions on stars and planets.
  • Great before the update

    By GarretM1414
    This app was amazing before the update, then they changed a few things, and now it’s even more amazing! The new “tonight” feature is my favorite part of the update and I also like how the button for changing the time/speed is more accessible. By far the best star map app!
  • Coolest app ever

    Koolest app ever
  • Isn’t Accurate Anymore

    By I never do reviews but....
    Gave it four stars because it isn’t accurately showing me where things are anymore. The time and location is correct and everything but while I’m looking at the moon in the sky, the app will say it’s in a completely different spot. This is one of my most favorite apps so I’m really hoping I can get this figured out.
