  • A little confused but amazing

    By NASA's bigest fan
    This app spins like crazy every time I move. I start to get confused where I am in the app and how to move around. But this app has lots of facts about planets and stars. I just wish it wasn’t so complicated and it talks about history or myths about everything that shows in the app.
  • Awesome!!!

  • Why wake me up at 11.00 pm for a survey?

    By Bboru2
    Surely your computers can be taught to send surveys during the day. Your program or app is great and I have shared it with my nautical friends. You would have gotten 5 stars if you were more considerate.
  • One of my favorite apps

    By TrueHazelNut
    I always have fun using this app. Day or night. It’s best on WiFi, it eats a lot of data.

  • Where the?!

    By KatAtomik
    This app is CRAZY inaccurate as far as where you are located in relation to where you are supposed to be looking vs where you actually are. I got this app because my 5yo is curious about the night sky and the constellations within it, he first asked what that first very bright star in the sky was(Venus) but this app claimed it was some other star& in order to find Virgo I literally had to turn us 180degrees from where Venus actually is. I’m uninstalling this app and definitely requesting a refund. I can’t remember if they charged me, but they should have to pay for all the confusion and subsequent disinterest this app has resulted in subjecting my toddler to. Maybe this is an alien app and it’s accurate on the planet the developers hail from, all I know is it’s not relevant to where WE are.
