  • Bogus
    by jael68 on June 26, 2022 at 2:45 pm

    This app is trash. I downloaded it on my phone and had my son download it on his so we could check out stars and constellations. Tell me how I’m showing a particular constellation on one side of the sky and he shows it in a totally different direction. We were standing side by side

  • Star stuff…
    by RickyFitz2000 on June 25, 2022 at 5:20 am

    What an amazing gift. I’ve learned so much. Thanks Team SkyView 🙂

  • Incredible
    by loschongos on June 25, 2022 at 3:35 am

    Best app I’ve ever seen. It’s amazing how well it works & how much information it shares.

  • I like it
    by Girlwoods1 on June 24, 2022 at 12:59 pm

    Helped me see the planets align

  • Only 6 planets in Lite version
    by Thundrcrow on June 24, 2022 at 11:45 am

    The app is really cool but I’m pretty disappointed they block Neptune, Pluto, and Uranus unless you pay. I understand not including the exo planets and asteroid belt on Lite but I expected at least the 9 Planets. (#Plutoisaplanet)

  • Amazing :3
    by Avery the great :3 on June 24, 2022 at 3:09 am

    I went through a horoscope phase at one point! This app is amazing to use, and it is only my first day of using it. I have shared it with all my friends. #Lovedastars!

  • Great App
    by Hollyweed on June 2, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    I appreciate the message that you interrupted me using the app so I can rate it. Thats the first time I’ve seen a developer be that attentive towards its users. I appreciate it.

  • Best App Ever!
    by dicollard on June 1, 2022 at 4:33 am

  • faker
    by Immortalsoldjer on May 30, 2022 at 4:17 am

    this is so fake there is no way it can a man with with a beard and a sword. and when i chase after the planets they go further, so fake😑😑😑

    by Texan yes but not a cowgirl on May 23, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    We’ve enjoyed sky view from Many geographical for several years. We still Enjoy it as much now as we have over the years. New features are so cool

  • Unlike any app I’ve ever used
    by Rose141618 on May 22, 2022 at 12:22 am

    This app actually helps me feel more connected to the earth and not less! I love the hep visualizing the stars under me as well as above… And my 4 year old who loves calendars, Zodiac signs and outer space is completely delighted. Thank you for a wonderful tool to spark wonder and connection to the cosmos.

  • Would have been five stars
    by Noneyas business on May 21, 2022 at 2:16 am

    But I think it should do a little more for free than it does. But I do plan on paying for it in the future. Still four stars is the best I can do

  • Not real
    by 284839193746 on May 21, 2022 at 1:59 am

    This app is so fake at first I thought it was cool until I pointed it at the floor is what put stars and planets of the floor as if it was the sky. DO NOT RECOMMEND IF LOOKING FOR REALITY!!!

  • 5 star review

    by stacigolds on May 18, 2022 at 7:28 am

    I am just a regular person that loves stars! This app makes me happy late at night. I pretend I’m traveling in space and I love it! It’s so calming and gives me chance to escape my worries of everyday life, thank you very much for creating this beautiful app!

  • Feel like a kid again
    by BruLuv85 on May 14, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    This app has been easy to navigate and understand. Also it’s calibration GPS setting Is spot on . Most of all the experience of exploring the outer space and beyond for hours has brought out the kid in me again

  • The one rising I go on my phone
    by big A citurs on May 14, 2022 at 12:33 pm

    It is really good and good for kids to yous

  • Plenty
    by Monty mana on May 12, 2022 at 11:59 pm

    This app is very informative, the graphics are great. One can easily explore the skies.

  • FAKE
    by okrnsh on May 6, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    This is one of the worst apps i’ve ever tried out. The planets are all over the place. Saturn is on the east and next thing i know it’s on top of me, the north.

  • So bad
    by gdhsbrgsj on May 3, 2022 at 2:30 am


  • Love the app!
    by mint and Galaxy lover on May 1, 2022 at 2:30 am

    I love to look at stars and I love the Milky Way! I got to say this is the best star app I have seen :> Tonight I am going to look at the stars outside and look at the stars and meters and this app lets you see north south east and west when you look down and I got to say this app is great in every way it is free and fun to use 😀

  • Lots of fun
    by ffbit on April 30, 2022 at 1:57 am

    I’m always curious about what I am seeing in the sky. I love that this can answer my questions. Easy to use and fun

  • New star or just not on the app?
    by Slumber1892 on April 27, 2022 at 2:16 am

    This app seems to be Very, Very accurate…So why do I see a star that it does not identify? I have pictures and a video of said star, but no answer…Not sure? Wish I could get an answer….was a 5 star for this app, but for this reason getting a 1 !

  • Great App
    by Big Bottey on April 27, 2022 at 12:41 am

    Been using for years, Kool

  • Great app.
    by Fl.dolphin on April 22, 2022 at 2:49 am

    Easy to use even for us not so bright group. Haha I’m still finding more things that I can do with this app.

  • Awesome App!!! Except…
    by JJ/CG on April 17, 2022 at 3:24 am

    This app is so good!!! But I would like to see more like comets and meteors and more!!! Can you please add this to the app!!! Also, ALL the planets, please!!! Please do!!!

  • Amazing app
    by mirrorflection on April 17, 2022 at 2:06 am

    This app shows you planets and stars in controlled size. I am in love with planets so this app is really amazing. It is all free and you can search for anything. It is my window into space and I absolutely love it.

  • Should include all eight planets in the free version.
    by EXLJ-1266 on April 11, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    The free version of this app does not come with the ability to locate all eight planets. Uranus and Neptune are the ones missing. Other than that, it’s a great app.

    by Rob-O-Bob-O-Bob on April 8, 2022 at 5:03 pm

    I’ve had, and use several different astronomy/stargazing type programs. Somebody just introduced me to this one and I got to say it’s pretty much unbelievable. I really love how the longer you hold still that fills in the drawings over the constellations as well as the names of the stars and other stuff. Can’t really think of anything I don’t like about it thus far. Thanks!! Bob

  • A+ recommendation!
    by BBANSTOKES on April 5, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    I’ve been enjoying this app for some time and just love every time I open it up. A+ recommendation!

  • Excellent app to begin learning about the solar system
    by Star Gazing Family on March 28, 2022 at 8:12 am

    My four year old son and I love using star view to see where the planets and constellations are in the night sky. He loves all things space related and we always look for the International Space Station and the Hubble Telescope. We love the added descriptions and the search function. This app is so much fun to explore space no matter how old you are, we highly recommend this app.

  • Nice but after perches not much happened andyah, in app is hobbled and still asking for me to buy.
    by Ggangel2 on March 27, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Not my favorite.

  • Unrealistic
    by s 12345omg on March 15, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    It has all true facts but the planet pictures look fake and they are not up in the sky they could be sitting on your bed it is so weird don’t waste your time do not download

  • Constellations
    by Lisahayes on March 11, 2022 at 2:54 am

    I’d just like for the depictions of the constellations to be either a choice that you can turn on or off, or make them significantly fainter. It takes away from seeing the stars that make them up.

  • Calibration stinks
    by Disappointed skywatcher on March 6, 2022 at 4:50 am

    This app won’t calibrate. Useless.

  • They murdered this app
    by Play3rtwo on March 6, 2022 at 12:15 am

    Locking planets behind a paywall is absolutely absurd. This app is misleading

  • School
    by teacher requested on March 4, 2022 at 5:58 pm

    My teacher said to try this app out,I just downloaded it by the reviews it seems really good!!this will help a lot sense we are learning about the sky.I can’t wait to see how well it is!❤️

  • It’s alright
    by sleepy-buns on February 28, 2022 at 2:32 am

    I wanted to see different constellations in our night sky. Technically it did do that but it wasn’t in the right position at all. I could very clearly see Orion to my right and it guided me all the way in the opposite direction. Not entirely sure what went wrong there but I wanted to use this app to accurately pinpoint constellations from where I am.
