Editors' Notes

This planetarium in your pocket makes it easy to discover the wonders of space wherever you go. Day or night, just aim your device skyward to see a live 3D map of the heavens, complete with beautifully illustrated constellations, stars, planets and satellites. A special night mode helps you read the map in the dark, while integrated weather reports show the best times for stargazing. You can even have notifications alert you to future astronomical events.

Thank you for your review! Happy stargazing!

It used to be a fine app

When I first purchased Night Sky, it worked really well, but since then, there are several "Premium" features and adverts for them.
In addition, the app is clunky now and difficult to calibrate because I need to do so every time I use the app.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review, we're sorry you're experiencing some problems. Core functionality of Night Sky is free and we have supplied the beautiful new Sky View with new graphics for free. Some premium features require a subscription to help fund development of the app, we hope you understand. If you are experiencing calibration issues, please make sure you're not using a third party case on your device and it is free from interference. If we can be of any further assistance, please reach out to our team at Support@iCandiApps.com who will be happy to help.
