Have you ever wished you could recognize the constellations but didn't want to study those paper star charts? Sky Guide's augmented reality (AR) mode makes learning your way around the sky clear and effortless.

I use this apps ambient music to fall asleep. Even with the app running for hrs while I'm sleeping, it drains the battery very slowly
I’m photographing sunrises, sunsets, crescent moons, full moons and such. I have 4-5 apps, but this one is the most helpful.
I whip this app out all the time to find planets and stars, great for anyone curious about the sky! Can’t wait for the widgets to be updated, it will certainly earn a place in my home screen
