  • Great app with one suggestion

    The app is amazing. I’m an astronomy buff but I can’t memorize every constellation. This is the best reference tool I have found. My only question is, why aren’t star clusters recognized? Pleiades is part of Taurus, but it’s still it’s one group as well. I feel like it should be labeled as Pleiades.

    Something is wrong. No matter what I point my (upgraded) app to, I get star names. I can be in the living room in the day time and point my phone to a blank wall and there are stars! I’ve tried emailing support, but haven’t received a reply, so hopefully I can get help here. Oh and I’ve calibrated it a lot. Thanks!

    In Hawai’i looking for Mars and the ISS, and this app had me spinning. Totally inconsistent. Looking at 10 o’clock one second, then 2 o’clock the next. Up. Down. Left. Right. No consistency. May as well just point randomly and name bright objects myself.
  • Bought the pro

    I had the lite app and I bought the pro, when I did that I could hear the music, but when I downloaded the pro, couldn't hear the music anymore. I tried switching songs, checked my volume, nothing... Definitely broken.
  • It's almost as good as a brick

    I get as much utility out.of this app as I would out of a brick. IT DOES NOTHING EXCEPT PLAY ANNOYING MUSIC. The app doesn't scan.it doesn't.show me.the sky I'm looking at. It only shows a static image of some stars.
  • THIS APP IS AWESOME!!!!

    My phone just met a horrible fate and I went to download this app again thought I was running on the free version, and it was like, “hey dummy you done paid for the full version”. Recently I found out there are morons who think the earth is flat. I bought this app years before I heard of such ignorance. Everyone needs this app. At night there is too much light pollution and I don’t ha e an observatory. This app is amazing. I opened it during the 2018 solar eclipse and this past January during the “total lunar wolf blood lunar eclipse”. I use it to identity constellations in the north and used it to teach me the small and Big Dipper and how to use two points in the Big Dipper to find the pole star. BTW women love it when you can point out stars. It also showed me the convergence between mercury and Jupiter and that was cool.
  • Use it on a swivel chair and you’ll lose your mind!

    I love this app... I could do this all day and night. And maybe there isn’t a better way to make use of your time—since you never know when the grid will crash and navigating by the stars will be a life saver! Get this and get to know the “dome of heaven”!

    I love the stargazer app. I have never been interested in studying the stars before as it was too difficult to go out and then look everything up. I have learned a lot and will continue to use this app everyday. Thanks!

    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.
