Hold your iPhone or iPad up and Sky Guide automatically aligns itself to the stars above you—no setup required.

  • Awesome tool

    By uss paraclete
    Great for answering all my questions on stars and planets.
  • Great before the update

    By GarretM1414
    This app was amazing before the update, then they changed a few things, and now it’s even more amazing! The new “tonight” feature is my favorite part of the update and I also like how the button for changing the time/speed is more accessible. By far the best star map app!
  • Coolest app ever

    Koolest app ever
  • Isn’t Accurate Anymore

    By I never do reviews but....
    Gave it four stars because it isn’t accurately showing me where things are anymore. The time and location is correct and everything but while I’m looking at the moon in the sky, the app will say it’s in a completely different spot. This is one of my most favorite apps so I’m really hoping I can get this figured out.
  • Best app

    By Steve92345
    Many people have asked that have android phones where they can get this app and I tell them get a iPhone because you can only get it on a iPhone me and my kids have enjoyed this app because of what it shows you in the sky and how easily you can navigate and find something you have never seen before in our sky I have passed it on to many people and everyone enjoys it
  • Easy and Fun

    By Calbitt
    Sky Guide is so easy - just hold it and look- and then go as deep as you want to learn what you’re looking at. Nice to use with telescope to find and choose targets.
  • Love the app, but slight “hey Siri” error

    By Mr. Pepap
    I love the app overall but the only thing that bugs me is an issue where you point your phone at a star and say “Hey Siri...” Sometimes when I do it the first time, it works but when I go and pan over a different star, it will show up as the star that I identified the first time. Otherwise great app.
  • Upcoming event

    By KillerWarDog13
    Fifth star labs can y’all please add notifications for the events on the calendar, just like when satellites are about to pass over it gives me a notification,I really want it to notify me when the right time to see mars or a meteor shower is about to happen.please add this in the setting and have a great day 😁.
