Beautiful app!


Starlight is a beautiful, fun, informative app! Everything I need for a bit of star gazing right in the palm of my hand. The illustrations are lovely, and I love the way the stars connect into constellations as you pan towards them! I also love that you can click on the stars or planets and get information about them. This is a very sleek looking app with good design and performance.



I have used this app for years. It is the best app for casual stargazing. I have tried other apps but nothing rises to the challenge. Even tho it is not free anymore, it’s worth the 99 pennies it costs.

A great fun little app


I took astronomy back in college. So as I'm looking through the night sky a lot of it is coming back to me. Great little app.
