The best app I’ve ever purchased

This app is fantastic. Everything about it is marvelous I always used to appreciate the sky but this made my love for it grow tremendously. I can now locate which planets are which and the bits and pieces of the constellations in the sky when before the app I would only erroneously guess. The app has two modes. One where you download it for free and the other where you pay something like 1.99. Both versions are fantastic. But if you are willing to put some money into this it’s even better. The sky is the TV of the universe (with God as it’s broadcaster) and it’s important that we pay attention to it. Psalm 19:1 “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”

Astronomer/Astrologer’s Best Friend!

10 STARS!!!!This is one of the most incredible and incredibly simple pieces of technology I’ve ever found!! Hours of entertaining knowledge and fun. Entertain friends or yourself, this tool will keep you busy all night(or day, if you’re bored.) You will be amazed at all of the stuff in the sky!! Stars, of course!!! Planets, rocket bodies, constellations, everything out there!!! Mad props to the makers of this app!! They did it! To use it is as simple as pointing your phone to the sky and reading your screen. Push a planet or a star and info pops up. Give yourself plenty of room to use. It is an acrobatic app once you get into it! Perhaps a VR versions is in the works so you can look hands free. It shows you what’s in the sky where you point it!! 360°, no obstacles. Just the sky on the screen. No wonder it’s called SkyView. A must get!!

I love this way too much!

I’m writing this review just because of how amazing this app is. I’m a kid who loves Astronomy, and takes it to long lengths. Just this Christmas, I got my first telescope! The Celestron 114 az Explorascope! I downloaded this app originally to see where my favorite star, Capella was located. Turns out, it had spot on location. I then got the full version, and have been using it on a weekly basis! This is an amazing app, and I look forward to using it for studying nebulas, planets, etc! I love this app mainly because I have been studying astronomy for about 5 years now, and have gone from knowing the basic 8 planets, to knowing the official names for several stars, galaxies, nebulae, and several other celestial bodies. This app is awesome for star gazing, planet watching, and exoplanet tracking! If you need a trustworthy, stable, easy to use app, download this for sure! My favorite part about this app is the mini lessons it gives you whenever you tap on a star, planet, nebula, star cluster, galaxy, you name it! I’m never downloading any other astronomy app! Thanks a bunch!! :)

Recommend it highly!

Use it often. Love it and already recommended it to many people. Great app. Would LOVE to see a few changes, enhancements, such as ability to better see MY VUEW, that is, sort of bring my perspective into focus and filter OUT the stuff I cannot see. This would help me learn MY SKY and I could then go deeper from there. Since I see nearly EVERYTHING through the App view, I often have difficulty pinpointing the name of EXACTLY which star, comet, satellite I am actually observing with my little eye. I want to know what THAT LIGHT I SEE is, so I can think on what I am looking at more fully. Sometimes I cannot be sure, since once the app screen comes on, we’ll, some further away lights become brighter than the one Zi am actually looking at without looking through the app viewer. WHEW!!!! Hard to explain. THANKS!!

Pay $1.99 but it was worth it!

So yesterday at night I wanted to find mars because that will be day until mars shows up again to its closest in 265 years which I’ll be dead by then. So I didn’t have a telescope so I remember that my teachers had this app and they said it’s really good to see planets and stars, so I bought it and I tried it out and we checked a star that was red with the SkyView app and... It was Mars!!!! That red little star in the sky was mars! We also saw other planets too like Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune but you can’t see it with the naked eye but the app detected it and right beside Neptune was the moon! Except the moon was closer. We didn’t see the moon because the trees were covering it. Thank you for this app! Others who see this must get this app! It’s worth it!it even works in day time too!

Not calibrated

Overall I like this app. It is easy to use. You look at the sky you put the circle on the star you want and it tells you what it is. The only thing bad at this point is two days ago the calibration doesn’t work. So when I came to Circle at the sky, the planet from my perspective is about a foot off to the left. I use the manual calibration tool, but when you use it you can’t see the name of the planet and you can’t make it stay on the planet. I do not see any way to get a hold a Overall I like this app. It is easy to use. You look at the sky you put the circle on the star you want and it tells you what it is.

I do not see any way to get a hold of support.Im searching for a clue on the Internet to fix it I find other people have had this problem also. If you can fix the calibration I would certainly give it a five star.

How do you use this???

I used skyview lite and i LOVED it! It took my phone camera and compass and showed me directly what was where i was pointing my phone. So, i bought the full version. There was no tutorial, no prompts explaining anything. Even in FAQ and settings within the app i couldnt find any help. Spend 10 mins like a dummy doing a figure 8 motion with my phone in all the concievable ways i could interpret the directions. No change or prompt. Resetting the tutorial (i never even received a tutorial) did nothing. It is locked on to one singular point and i cannot navigate or move away from this point. I would have preferred to assume user error and email the developers privately for help but there is no option to do this. I do not have an old phone, everything is up to date, and the lite version worked perfectly. I wish i would not have spent the money on this because it is functionally useless to me. No recalibration or settings change or anything to help me figure out what is wrong. At this point i have to assume the app is faulty and i wish i could have my money back.

Addictive!

I am very much a beginner when it comes to looking at the sky. Had a nice telescope but due to my location I really needed to travel about 25 west where the area is very rural. I mean how many times can you you look at the moon(even though it fascinated eveytime). So SKYVIEW, that’s why we’re here. I can spend hours walking along A1A in Palm Beach using SkyView. Looking at stars and different galaxies. Point your camera to the sky, touch any star or planet OR tap on any space junk orbiting the earth (that in itself is overwhelming), any little dot you see which could be another galaxy. Below on your screen you will get the information on exactly what you are looking at. Very cool stuff. To think we cannot get from one end of our galaxy to the other. And there are millions of galaxies out there😳😎We can’t be the only ones!!! The app is great. Fun, informative. User friendly!

The Best Out There!

This is the best app I’ve ever used relating to looking up at the night sky! What a way to study the universe. To be able to look up, point and Wala all the knowledge you'd ever want relating to the SolarSystem, constellations, galaxies planets, nebulas, etc. just right at your fingertips. Get this, if you don’t know where it is that you’re looking for this app will even point you right to it, not only that it will show you the time it hits horizon, a outline of the path it’s following, where it is any time day or night, just unbelievable. People today have this knowledge right at their fingertips. In my day we had to go to a Library or open up a encyclopedia find a book, open the book, find the section and read about it, also the knowledge was limited. This modern knowledge to be right at your fingertips is just unbelievable.
