What's New in Version 3.3.1
This update introduces new information and images of Pluto from the New Horizons NASA mission. Enjoy!
A whole new view of the night's sky.
This is by far the best universe viewing tool out there. Most of us look up at night and see a few stars and think it's a beautiful sight. The SkyView app takes it to a whole other level. It helps the night sky not only be beautiful, but makes it very educational and fun at the same time. I've even found myself setting alarms in my phone so I can catch glimpses at certain events. Such as the International Space Station doing a flyover. Which before this app had no idea that you could view it with the naked eye. I've even taken pictures of the I.S.S, that came out pretty good for an object that is approximately 250 miles above the Earth's surface. There is so many different functions of the SkyView app. For all of you Astronomers wanna be astronomers or even just the average stargazer, this is a must have app for you. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Simply Amazing, Amazing Amazing I am an amateur astronomer with a 1O in reflector telescope and I use this app. On my phone and iPad as well as my scope has onboard computer gear driven motors to find and track heavenly bodies these toys are extremely fun for the nerd in me... Lol nothing bad to say about this app. Or satellites both are worth the money they do everything they say they do .... Hours of fun with your iPads and iPhones I am quite sure they will work on other brand devices as well...
I downloaded this app because I enjoy astronomy and I will be away from the city this weekend with a good chance of seeing a lot. Decided to play with it before hand while at work and was astounded with the wealth of information, intuitive interface and stunning augmented reality feature. I love this app and have already shared/recommended it to several people.
