Good thing it’s not a waste of money.😃

App Updates


Love using this app to see the stars, galaxies and constellations. I use this app as a guide with my telescope to pinpoint some the stats. I’m using iOS 14 and I wish there was an update for this app.

Most useful sky gazing app in the App Store. Definitely worth the money.

Love, love, love!!


This app is visually enjoyable along with all the content and super easy to use !

This app is amazing. We love seeing what those satellites are above us. We were able to find the ISS when were on a cruise in the middle of the Caribbean. The only thing I would recommend is that they add dwarf planets.
