Ratings and Reviews
Another lovely app, the original is one of my favourite and most used. No.2 is basically more polished, nicer graphics etc. but from my experience so far, doesn't really add much to the original. Now I've not downloaded to my iPad yet, only my iPhone 4s. I'll probably delete no.2 and stick with the original until I upgrade to the iPhone 6, as the original runs smoother on the 4s. You can't blame Vito for pushing the technology, (it does state "optimised for iPhone 5"), but I'd rather continue enjoying the original with everything turned up to max , than this turned down to half to run smooth. If you didn't get the original, buy this and adjust the graphics to suit your phone. If you have the original on a 4/4s, I'd wait for now.
EDIT: As of iPhone 8, and soon iPad Pro 11”, version 2 has surpassed the original. It’s not cheap for the full package, but well worth it and great value

Thank you very much for sharing your opinion. It is highly appreciated.
Great, 1 little problem.....
The app is wonderful! Very clever. I can put the app into camera view, and it recognises objects and didn’t show stars through them ie. trees, and houses, so you get the true “looking into space” feel. 1 gripe..... for some reason, when I look at the moon (tilt the camera toward the sky) the whole star overlay moves clockwise..... which throws the alignment out, and I have to exit and restart the app to get this to stabilize, which is slightly embarrassing when trying to show the great app to others! Can it be fixed? Otherwise it would have been 5. Such an in depth view of space, I even found satellites orbiting Jupiter and lander ones on mars! Impressive. Highly recommended!

Thank you very much for the feedback. Please contact our support team and they will help you (email@example.com).
Latest version has a multitude of features, though that makes it a bit slower starting than the earlier version. I don't use all of the features (so I can't comment) but the interactive sky maps are really good - note: it does need to know where you are to give an accurate star map!!!
