Customer Reviews


Don't mind what those morons say this app is great! Ya just got to play around with some buttons first , just point at what your looking at through your iPhone at is shows exzactly what constellations and stars are in front of :)

Has potential

Used it twice now and has worked fine. Ive played with all the options and everything works. If it could track satellites I would give it a 5

Not a point and name

Downloaded it while camping to name some stars, but it does not do the normal point and name gps style I was hoping for. For someone looking for a simple app to name stars this is not it.
