Customer Reviews

great graphics, lots of fun!

I love the graphic for each planet - very nice! My favorite quick references are the Visibility List and the Spinning Globe. I love tilting it to see the Arctic or Antarctic in full. I check this app nearly every day!

My only wish is that they would include Pluto. (A so-called 'dwarf' planet is still a planet!) I realize it would be prohibitive to include all the 'dwarf' planets, but Pluto has a special place in the hearts of many people, worldwide. It would be very meaninful to me, and to others, if they would include it with the other planets in this app.

I love it

After having this app for over a year, it became my go to guide for "what is that bright star?" answers. In the last year I have learned so much about the night sky with this app. I can somewhat navigate my way around just by looking up now.

Allways remember that couriosity should never be wasted! For that I recommend this app for anyone learning/studying or just for the quick reference.

Amazing App for the whole family!!!

I have used this app for years! We live out in the country, and our property is covered in trees. With this app, we can see when certain stars and planets will be visible, so we can go to an open field near us to view them. It has also been a great educational tool for my children. I can't say enough about how much I love this app.
