Who said education can't be fun!

Point it in any direction at any time of day and you'll be amazed at what you'll see. Last night I watched the International Space Station fly over my house as I watched it in real time with this app. Ever wonder which planet or star is shinning so brightly in the sky? Just point your device in its direction and you can easily see what it is. And you don't have to go outside to use this app. Just sitting in your living room you'll be able to see what's in the sky. Point it towards the floor, the wall, the ceiling...in every direction the sky is the limit. Enjoy!

One Of The Best Apps

I love this. What can be improved? Never had it crash. options are night view with red screen, New Aget music can be turned on or off (I love it), you can overlay your surroundings with Sky view to see exactly which star you are looking at, size of planets and stars is adjustable. Hubble and ISS are nicely show, every thing has trajectory/path if you desire. Constellations shown. This is just so much fun and educational and free!

Great app, calibration needs work

I tried SkyView Free on an iPad. Augmented reality works well to superpose the camera view on the star map. Stars or planets fainter magnitude -1 cannot be seen on screen due to iPad camera. I wonder what the limiting magnitude is on the latest iPhone? Azimuth calibration is usually wrong, so the app thinks that south is northeast and shows stars in the wrong place. This is not a problem with the iPad because other apps show the correct orientation
