    Fantastic I am learning every day
  • I won’t receive satellite notifications

    By ~MysticSkullivine~
    This app is beautiful & is one of my faves, but even with all of my notification settings turned on from my phone & the app, I never receive any. I’ve tried everything from re installing the app, to restarting my phone. I’d love to get notified when a satellite is passing by. Is this a bug that can be fixed??
  • The best!

    By I Love Space, And This App
    I’ve always found space and science especially interesting, and this app is my favorite app by far. I am always on it learning new things about space, and also, if I see something in the sky irl, I can take this out, look at it, and I will then know what I’m looking at. It’s super cool.
  • Funn

    By some made up name
    I like how it lets me know about the space stTion comming Would a one hot notice ahead of time also Maybe better to Jane able to set two alarms Like one hour ahead of time then another about 7 mins ahead of the space station fly ouvrt I like iridium flares too Don’t under stand the ratings fir how bright ast might be passing over I I can see it with my naked eye then it’s of no use to me Msybe a recommendation that says use c power binoculars or telescope to view satellites in orbit Or be able to deject a First and second list Those I can see with my kids with just the eyeball and how bright it will be or that it will be so dim Don’t waste your time I can see iss and can show my kids it easy when it’s over head Targeting of the iPhone is a little oof tho But usually I can get close enough to spot it So that’s good Write me back if you do these mods Thanks

    This is one of my top 3 favorites. It was recommended to me and then everyone I’ve recommended it to has also gotten it. The information you get from just touching one star is incredible!!!
