***From the developers of the world famous Star Walk stargazing guide, Apple Design Award winner***
"For stargazers, Sky Live is exactly the app we've always needed to find out just how much of the stars we can see at night and when we'll be able to see our favourite constellations and planets." by Nathan Snelgrove, AppStorm.net.
Stunning space photos combined with everything you need to know about stargazing conditions for your location tonight. Stargazer or not - this app will spark your curiosity.
The most accurate hourly conditions for stargazing are estimated on seven criteria and summarized in one Stargazing Index that will give you all the information you need to make your plans. The formula was developed by a mathematician on the Star Walk team and takes into account:
- Is there anything interesting in the sky tonight?
- Can I see Saturn?
- Is it going to be cloudy?
- Is it going to rain?
- Too much light?
- Is the Moon too bright for stargazing?
You will also get detailed reports on position and trajectory of the International Space Station, the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter and other planets. The forecast is available for seven days ahead.
If you would like your photos to be featured in the app, please send them to email@example.com.
What's New in Version 1.0.2
- Now Sky Live works as very useful addition for Star Walk. - We added communication between two great apps.
Great Value after $.99 In-App Purchase
Wonderful how it graphs for you the position of objects above the horizon and gives you at a glance the rise and set times. Would like to see more objects included like comets, etc. Really nice touch that it switches to the related app when you click on an object so that you can find it in the night sky. It does need to be labeled as a light version. Must make an in-app purchase to unlock full functionality. Since that is only 99 cents I am giving the developers a pass this time. Overall great value for something that costs less than a candy bar in the vending machine.
I like this app for keeping connected to the skies in a casual way, but what kind of celestial viewing app wouldn't herald major celestial events like the ones we've been having with some special banners and additions?? When there is a lunar eclipse, meteor shower, solar eclipse or anything else newsworthy, I expect to see it when I open an app called SkyLive. There's a solar eclipse next week… will it be visible in my area? You guys should tell me rather than make me google it and read about it in some local paper.
Paid app wants more money
This is a paid app that wants more money to unlock functionality it should already have. A nasty trick and a great way to lose customers on your other paid apps because you may charge more after someone already paid for your app. I will not buy your apps again!! This was an inappropriate bait and switch!! You pay for this app only to find you have to pay more from within the app to get the functionality you were led to believe was included.
