    The app is very user friendly. It allows you to easily match up any star or planet with your camera.

  • Two suns?

    By me Merv
    While looking at the sun the sky view shows the sun in a different place with the camera on. How do I fix?

    hard to aim at stars & every time i clicked on one for more info an annoying ad pops up!! No thanks. SkyView cheaper, easier, never ads.
  • Location is completely off

    By _casey_thorsted_
    I’ve had this app for a few years & in the beginning it was very accurate & awesome. It still is very cool but for almost the last year the location is all out of wack. I’ve tried restarting it & keeping it updated but it doesn’t seem to fix. Really upsetting because it’s almost pointless to use the app if it can’t even tell you what you’re looking at..
  • Super awesomeness!

    By shizzle juzzle
    Best app I have. Super fun and I love reading about the stars to my wife and kids.
  • Can't find the stars

    By 1RKPjr
    I have tried and tried to locate and name the stars that were out to no avail. Be aware that even if you have a problem and delete it make a complaint they will NOT issue a refund. I guess I will have to contact Amex to get my $2.99 back. It's a point of contention with me.
  • The compass been off for few months
