This app is sooooo freaking cool at the moment it's a full moon and it's extremely bright I'm glad I had this app so I can look at all the constellations and other planets multitude of stars and I'm thrilled I can see the ones that are underneath my feet and to know that cancer is at Jupiter and Aquarius is at Mars it's amazing and no telescope and you see the ones you can't normally see love love love 😍😍😍
Outstanding! I downloaded this app an hour ago and I'm hooked! Such a clever use of GPS and the camera to pin point celestial bodies and constellations. I have never written a review over anything my entire life but this app deserves it! You'll have so much fun!!!... I recommend putting on some headphones and listening to the music while star gazing, just awesome!
Probably the single most amazing app I have, I was originally looking for something to help me in my college astronomy course and I am so glad I came across this beaut, it's not only perfect for everything I need for the class but it is so interesting and easy to use! Almost makes me want to "adopt a star ;)" honestly amazing
