Sky view Review


An outstanding app. It’s very accurate and user friendly. A novice’s guide to the heavens. Must have app for everyone to have a better understanding of the celestial neighbourhood.

Stars , galaxies , planets , satellites , stars everything !!


One of the Best app if not the best , it is an augmented reality app so star gazers don't have to worry about anything . It shows detailed view of the sky with distribution of stars ( their mass , diameter , illumination , phase etc ) planets ( their history , discoverer , diameter , time for one orbit , color , period of day , rising time , setting time , their orbit , etc ) satellites and rocket parts ( use of the satellite their ,orbital speed , no. of rotations around earth in one day , their orbit across the sky etc )
The arts in the app is beautiful and will defiantly make you feel the awesomeness of the universe . I think it is a good app for amatures , layman ,star gazers , curious people , (truthfully for anyone who has interest in astronomy )
## NOTE : to view satellites u have to do an in app purchase



Space is big. See more of it.
