  • Great app

    By Levi_spinny
    I use this app whenever I’m at home and it’s too cold to go outside! I also use this to find planets and starts and stuff like that. Thanks for the app! -L
  • Love the stars that I can’t see because of the city:(

    By Mishna101111
    I wish I could see the stars as if I were in the middle of nowhere and I would love to see the solar system like I can on TV but examine them longer than I can on TV. It’s so beautiful and so interesting to learn that what we see is the past. I cannot fathom that distance. That alone blows my mind. Thank you for this. Shelley
  • Not recommended, constant crashes and won't open

  • Enjoy it but...

    By N_q
    I do enjoy using the app but can’t always get the information I want from it.
  • App is wonderfully user friendly!

    By Bootffgfff
    Night Sky doesn’t do a lot of the scummy tactics a lot of app developers use. It provides easy access to subscription managing and is simply just trying to be an app that works as intended. Kudos for the interface :)
  • Starry, starry night!

    By RWatson908
    A friend recommended this app. I have enjoyed looking more than ever. I’ve shared this with my children and friends. Great app!
  • Disappointed with the update :(

    By Janeiphoneuser
    I've had this app for near 4 years after purchasing. It no longer accurately shows me the position of the stars. I think I've been staring at Venus every night but it doesn't show me what the star is :( bummed
