    Honestly, stars have always fascinated me. I didn’t know much about them until I got this app. I even want to be an astronomer now! Super educational and super fun on a starry night.
  • Wow.

    Very easy to use for complete beginners looking at the night sky. I have recommended it to many people, maybe 50+. I got my first telescope 5 years ago and have advanced my knowledge of the sky and my many telescopes. But SkyView is still my go to app when out observing.
  • Zero

    Zero! I enjoyed it for years but it just stopped working a year or more ago. It does nothing now regardless of all my attempts to change it’s settings and to notify it’s source. System won’t allow me to give it zero stars. I’m forced to give one star.
  • Star struck?
