    Fun application and have shared with friends. Last update was a year ago so wondering if it's being monitored by the developer.

    I have had more fun with this app than I can say, and I’m a mom with grown kids. Found out about this app while at the beach. Still enjoying it at home. Night vision filter is helpful. I’ve found Space Station, planets, stars and even space junk aka rocket bodies. Don’t care for sound track. Wish I could set my own. Highly recommend to everyone. My 20 year old wishes he had this as a help to get through his high school astronomy class. GET this app! You won’t be disappointed.
  • Amazing App! One suggestion

    I really fell in love with SkyView. It makes it so easy to learn about what I'm looking at in the night sky. There's one thing I think could make the app even better: Currently the only way to look at a specific object in the sky through the app is to point and orient your device so it is facing that object, like the camera. But sometimes I would like to search around the sky without waving my phone in crazy directions, like if I'm lying in bed and want to pan over to what's under the horizon. I think it would be great to add a feature that lets you pan across the sky without needing to move your phone, so it is not oriented by the gyroscope. The view can stay at a constant zoom level, but being able to learn the stars without having to always point in that direction would be tremendously more convenient. This could be an option that you can switch on or off to keep the integrity of the original application as well. Please consider. Thanks for a wonderful contribution to the world!

    I love the app, but with the upgraded version I have all this space junk. I can keep the satellites off or do you consider them one and the same? This app should separate the two as options. I was thinking about the latest satellite offering, but not with the other space junk.
