  • Gui interface not intuitive or logical

    By Notapaidreviewer
    Settings are hiding under preferences way down the selection of options. Too many premium features all over the place instead of being consolidated. App is HUGE in size. Not impressed with this app. There's better apps to that are user friendly and free. Uninstalled.
  • Don’t be fooled

    By Oklahoma City, Ok
    Don’t be fooled by all the portals and stuff You have to pay for some of most of the things you want to use

    By ios 5 was the best
    If you need just the Today widget, it comes at the expensive bloat of 600Mb of multimedia content inside the app. The multimedia should be downloadable on demand, not preloaded. Preloading for local caching should happen as an user option, not by default.
  • Started off great...

    By markhasacommonname
    .. but now we get alerts, run outside and the object we have been alerted to (usually ISS) is no where to be found. Updates, new downloads have not resolved the issue.
  • Awesome

    This is a great app.
  • Amazing!!! Detailed. A must have.

    By Husky62108
    I downloaded this app so that I could find Saturn so my daughter and I would be able to view it through her telescope. This app alone has given me a desire to go buy a telescope and stargaze. The detail that it provides for each planet and constellation is amazing and being able to easily identify where those planets are located in the sky makes this app a must have. Thank you developers for making this stargazing app immersive.
  • Buy buy buy

    There’s a ton of great stuff on this app and a lot of it is free, but I can’t even learn the free stuff without touching something that opens up my browser to buy something. Very frustrating.
