    An absolute necessity if you look at the night sky.

  • Excellent App

    Highly recommend, I’ve had this app for years and it’s worked great

  • Great app, thanks so much!
    by dnpcav3 on May 22, 2022 at 2:35 pm

    I love this app …only one suggestion: I’m older and my eyes are not as good as it used to be I wish there was a way to make the text bigger! Sometimes I see stars or planets in the sky and want to know what they are - your app works flawlessly but without my glasses I cannot read the name. No biggie though it’s probably just me and my old eyes. Thanks!

  • Looking up
    by joeaa60 on May 17, 2022 at 2:23 pm

    It’s always nice to find an app like this that can show you what is up in the heavens. Although living in a big city it is hard to see.

  • Screen calibration is off

    Doesn’t show what I’m actually pointing my phone at but rather slightly off making it confusing and frustrating

  • Amazing!!
    by pkineman on April 27, 2022 at 4:36 pm

    I have downloaded a few Star Chart apps already and thrown them in the trash. They were useless —even the ones I paid for. But this one is free and absolutely incredible! I am paying for a few upgrades in the app but everything is really amazing and well done. Easy to use too!!

    by Mark in Valley Forge PA on April 17, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Star Chart is our go-to app whenever we are stargazing at Cherry Springs State Park in Pennsylvania, at the lake in Maine, or the beach in Florida. Finding our orientation to the horizon and the elliptical plane could not be easier. Finding various constellations, individual stars of interest, the Sun, Moon and each of the planets is made so simple. We especially like the way the magnitude of stars and planets including conjunction of planets are displayed. Thank you for a GREAT app.

  • Buggy
    by Biktop21 on March 27, 2022 at 2:36 pm

    It’s fun to watch and feel like I’m flying all over the Galaxy. But it always has to re install the add ons purchased and it keeps repeating over and over.

  • Simple yet sophisticated
    by Cff5800 on March 21, 2022 at 10:14 am

    Easy to use and it provides a detailed interface. I've been using it for years and now that my kids are growing up they enjoy trying to identify the planets and stars.

  • Used to work. Doesn’t work. Just crashes at launch

    Doesn’t work anymore.

    by Fillmore Fudpucker on March 9, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    This app. should be the most popular app. On planet Earth! It has expanded my mind to the heavens. Seeing the stars and planets, then going outside and experiencing the wonder of our universe firsthand. I wish I had this kind of ease of information when I was a child.(70’s) My grandchildren will be able to enjoy the night sky . Again LOVE this app.

  • Crash

  • Outdated
    by sddarkman619 on February 19, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    Purchase the add-ons but it just goes into a download loop. Does not successfully download nor updates the app. Will have to get a refund because this app is no longer useful. I.e. it’s useless

  • please examine the apparent brightness of Venus
    by Treehugger Dave on February 15, 2022 at 2:54 pm

    Star Chart is an excellent program, but please confirm your value for the apparent brightness of the planet Venus. It may be way off, too low (too negative, too bright.) Thanks.

  • Best app on my phone hands down
    by useatownrisk on February 12, 2022 at 12:13 am

    This app has unwittingly helped me through so many mental breakdowns and blights of depression because these stars and their constellations (unlike life) never TRULY change and it helps to anchor me in the truth and the moment in such an inspiring & progressive way. This app is amazing. Get it! Now.

  • Don’t buy the upgrades
    by SalishGrump on February 4, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    This is a decent star finder, star chart app. However the upgrades seem to be a waste of money. While using this to teach my kids about the skies above them I felt like it might be fun to purchase the satellites app so we could track the ISS. It won’t load and keeps crashing. Multiple reinstalls and even across my iPhone or iPad… no go. There are better apps out there that will give you what you pay for.

  • Kids and adults love it!
    by Kjmendoza on February 1, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    When we go outside at night and see the stars, my kids always ask for this app so they can identify them! They love looking at this with me! We are currently in Spain, 7 hours ahead of home, but my boys love seeing the same stars here! It did not automatically know I was in Spain and I had to reset the location, but it worked great once I did!

  • Very helpful on the star information
    by B.G. 711 on January 26, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Hi my name is Bee Gee I am looking at the star app for a few years now it is very interesting my granddaughter Shelley also does she got into it really strong and we both have telescopes and we looked at it over the bay and it looks really sharp!

  • I love this app.
    by AJS Ipad on January 20, 2022 at 12:56 pm

    I love this app. Whenever I see a star or planet I can always look it up and find out what it is.

  • Truly amazing
    by RustiBix on January 20, 2022 at 7:59 am

    Thank you so much for this. It’s incredibly detailed. The user interface is very intuitive, pretty mind blowing that they made such an easy bridge for us to use to visit the endless sky. I’m learning SO much!

  • I LOVE StarChart
    by treefixation on January 12, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Countless times, this app has kept neighbors and children calm in the coldest situations… we love you in California.

  • Love this app!
    by Pippin761 on January 11, 2022 at 7:01 am

    Fun to use! I’m learning so much from it.

  • Wonderful app
    by 6lvnv on January 10, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    We really really enjoy this app! We have used it many times over the years. It has helped us out on camping trips, and with youth groups and my husband has used it with his astronomy class. Thanks for making the stars accessible!

  • Will not work
    by The Mighty Cortez on January 7, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    I use to use this app..with good success. Now, it crashes every time .

  • Great 👍
    by reallt546 on January 3, 2022 at 4:21 pm

    It’s a cool app but definitely could be better I live in a big city and so all the lights from the city kind of block out The stars and what not but I went on vacation somewhere quite far away from the big cities in the night sky just lit up it was amazing but I never brought my telescope out there to look at everything yeah I’m not blaming the app for what happens in the city but I hope everyone understands and yeah. Anyways enough about me so the app has a bunch of cool planets and stuff it helped me find Jupiter Mars Venus and the other planets. And when the moon was out it was just extremely spectacular but I don’t need this app to find the moon. Does anyone know how annoying Siri is? Anyways it’s a nice app but I wish I was just in a better place where I could see everything I guess that’s the whole point of this review just a wish. And nice graphics too

  • Amazing
    by TristorDrexus on January 1, 2022 at 2:28 pm

    This app is absolutely amazing! The stars and planets have never been more beautiful to explore! I’ve always dreamed of being an astrologists and you have made that happen at the tip of my fingers!

  • Great app
    by Trenton Patrick on January 1, 2022 at 12:47 am

    This app tells me the constellations and planets in the sky. So it is easier for me to find planets in the dark sky when we go camping. I also can see the nebulas so I’ll try and hunt for it on my nice telescope. So if you are a beginner looking for planets, highly recommend this app.

  • Awesome
    by geuffjdjdhf on December 23, 2021 at 3:05 am

    This app was soooooo cool. I would suggest this app for ppl who are learning about stars or who are just interested in stars. They also have the names of the stars. Again this app was awesome

  • Add ons
    by rwm7 on December 20, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Be careful with the in app add ons they charge you for them and you don’t get them.

  • I love Star Chart.
    by Me Too Phat on December 18, 2021 at 6:33 am

    No matter where I travel, I can use Star Chart to see what I’m looking at in the night sky, get a heads up on meteor showers, and know where to look. It’s awesome and I highly recommend it.

  • I love
    by jocomfhhg on December 17, 2021 at 3:12 am

    Amazing looking at the night sky

  • Good app but too many upgrades that require payment
    by IGJ 16 on December 15, 2021 at 7:40 pm

    I love the help finding consolations and the fact that it has an astronomical calendar saying when meteor showers are is amazing! Just saying I could pay $5-10 for the app not to have to deal with the upgrades such as where to look for meteor showers and comets which are 2 separate upgrades one if not both cost $4.99. Still overall love the app and I haven’t had any major bugs so that’s nice and remarkably no ads so I really do understand the creators trying to make some money through upgrades but wish they would do it in the overall purchase.🤩☄️💫✨🌌

  • No longer supported. Don’t waste your money.
    by Ikester-1st on December 12, 2021 at 2:12 pm

    I was one that purchased this app back when it first came out. Enjoyed it! But it appears that the developers totally lost interest and enjoy taking money for in app purchases that don’t work or don’t even give you a current comet tracking… Time to move to something that is current and supported for the current iOS. Like a fool I purchased a couple in app purchases before I had read reviews. Hopefully this review will save someone from that frustration. Could be a great app. Once was.. If I could give it zero stars, I would.

  • The More You Know🌈💫
    by TallStorm0044 on December 12, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    This application deserves more than a 4.6, for how much knowledge and wisdom you can gain.

  • Comet upgrade?
    by Angrydad101 on December 12, 2021 at 10:22 am

    Just purchased the upgrade to track comet Leonard but no where to be seen.

  • Great for novice and professional
    by Mackinac&Moose on December 11, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    Wish I had this year’s ago! Great tool for quick identification.

  • Get a different app
    by mel6;60062 on December 6, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    I’ve tried three or four different free stargazing apps and this one is probably the worst. The biggest problem is that it insists on giving Arabic names for most stars even though it says it uses the main language you use on your phone—I don’t even have Arabic downloaded to my phone. But it also seems to miss things altogether—the other day I was 90 percent sure I was looking at Venus (which is huge) and it didn’t even show up. It doesn’t acknowledge several smaller constellations. I’ve never seen it acknowledge a meteor shower. It basically contributes nothing to my life. Oh I guess it helped me get better at recognizing Saturn—that’s one it usually gets right.

  • One of my favorite apps!
    by Just1knik on December 4, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Love all the details this app provides. It’s great for visualizing the planets and constellations.

  • Awesome
    by In Kzoo on November 25, 2021 at 2:17 am

    Really fun to just spin your phone around & look at all of the stars! Great App!

  • Very helpful
    by itsLukavis on November 23, 2021 at 12:54 am

    This app is very helpful when using a telescope and for star gazing in general. Would really recommend this app!
