What’s New

Version 8.1

Sky Guide is ready for iOS 13 and iPadOS 13!

+ ARKit 3
Sky Guide’s AR viewer takes advantage of ARKit 3 to embed 3D objects into the environment more naturally. With ARKit's people occlusion, humans will realistically block rendered objects behind them.

+ Siri Shortcuts
“Hey Siri, where’s the Space Station?”
Sky Guide has new Siri shortcuts to quickly locate planets, stars, and satellites. Use the convenient new shortcuts page in the app to set up and manage your voice shortcuts, or use the iOS Shortcuts app for even more customization.

+ Dark Mode
Sky Guide has been designed for the dark and is perfectly at home in iOS’s new dark mode. The main app, today widget, and notifications have all gotten “dark adapted“ for the new look.

+ Language Setting
Want to use a different language in Sky Guide than you do for other apps? Now you change the language in Sky Guide’s preferences menu.

Killer Astro App with amazingly useful localisation

I’ve tried stacks of Astro apps over the years. This absolutely nails it in terms of powerful features packaged in the most elegant and easy to use UI. But the real killer feature is localisation. More often than not this level of detail only works in certain countries or cities - but I was delighted to see it works perfectly for me in Adelaide, Australia. I’m talking really useful info like light pollution, cloud cover and visual magnitude - the type of weather data very specific to astronomy and stargazing. This is presented in a very useful format that’s already filtered to my geo location and doesn’t require interpretation of generic weather and maps. There’s also a range of Astro news that’s timely, well curated, and seamlessly integrated. Love this App!

Speaking now ,


Great way to explore the heavens. Constellations appear with a superimposed artwork that captures your imagination (these can also be turned off in settings). Easily to reach information blurbs can be found along side each point of interest. These give you an insight into the background and current knowledge of the object; name, mythology and science information such as star type, size are provided in most cases. I have used this app for years and it will continue to encourage me out side and to look up! 5 celestial beauties out of 5!

Totally awesome

This app is totally worth buying! It’s so pretty to look at plus it has everything you’ve ever wondered about when it comes to star💫 gazing or finding out where our space stations are, without this app i probably wouldn’t have known Mars was so close to earth 🌏 the 1st time in 15yrs!! Being able to share the beauty of the universe and all that is out there amazing thank you ☺️ 🌟


Space is big. See more of it.
