Ratings and Reviews
This app has more features than I was expecting and they are great. The different features include Sky 2D, Sky 3D, Visibility, Globe, and options, where you can modify parts of the app to accommodate your use of it, and make it specific to you. The accurate and useful information is easy to access with the easy tabs at the bottom of the screen. The app uses the motion of your phone to create a 3D view of space. Further, in each planet is given its own description, where details are very specific and informative. There is nothing I would add!
Not a good review
This is not acurate, the planets are not in the place where they really are in the sky. I know this because at around 8:00 P.M I had gone outside and looked in the sky with the tele scope I got for Christmas . The apps star walk and solar walk are awesome and actually show a lot more than this . They show that in the actual apps the planets are in the right spots. It said on here that the moon was right above me in the sky but that was wrong . I just got in my house and the moon hadn’t been in the sky above me. All the planets were also wrong, the only planets in the sky are Uranus and I can’t even see that because it’s so down. App not good and doesn’t have right things. Please make this app better and more educational and get ideas from other apps and videos thank you and please MAKE IT BETTER . Sincerely Mystery cat
I would say that this app is very easy to use. It has a very simple concept and it works very well for iOS users. However, I believe that the graphics could be better they seem a little underdeveloped. I do like the fact that if you click the plants it tells you when they are visible and gives a array of facts on the planets. In that feature is so nice that I wish they did the same for the constellations. I feel as if the globe feature is also underdeveloped’ if they could include some information on the globe tab than it would be great.
