Customer Reviews

Not as detailed as the PC version

Bit disappointed with this if I have to be honest. It's ok, but I bought it because other reviewers have said that it's identical to the PC version and I isn't, it's like a lite version with many of the features missing like shooting stars and the ability to customise the display as much. The PC version is better and free and the iOS version is £2.29, it should be the other way around.

Excellent

This app is more or less identical to the desktop version, it's also very clear that a ton of thought has gone into the UI. Usage by touch is totally instinctive and intuitive. I think this is probably the best astro app on iOS at the moment.

Not as good as expected

Seems equivalent to desktop version - lots of missing function

Main loss is ability to centre to specific coordinates
Only searches target by catalogue name. £2.99 that could have been better spent
