What's New in Version 3.5.1
This release of SkyView addresses a few, small bugs regarding iOS 10.
Excellent for beginners
Really awesome app if you want an intro to astronomy.
Working with the gps while no location services available is one of the features I've enjoyed so far.
Precision is more than enough if you remember that it's a free app after all.
Plus you can track satellites in real time. Which is cool :)
a pretty good app, almost perfect. Why i say " almost perfect "? Well.. that's because it's accurate but not 100%
