Must have app for humans

People are constantly looking down in their mobile screens while all the magic happens above their heads. This app helps you explore the cosmos in a way you’ve never seen before. I’ve clicked pictures of Venus, Jupiter and Mars right from my iPhone just because I can spot them and prepare for the best viewing time. Call me a lunatic if you want, but I use Skyview much more than I use Google Maps. Haha. You guys undoubtedly deserve 5 stars 🌟

Simply Awesome

There are apps which serve more or less the same purpose. But this app goes an extra mile. It takes care of every minute detail and surprises you with features. One such instance is that it shows travel path of object in focus and they do not stop here. They go in detail to show moving direction by showing dots and solid lines on different sides of object path.

Other Objects And Stars

This is a great app and it has most of the stars in outer space. Even though I find it a great app since it has so much information about everything I did not know in space, I still have a problem with this app. There are some stars, nebula, constellations and MOONS that are not shown in this app. First the creators did not put down moons and Pluto and the other Dwarf Planets. So are the other stars, VY Canis Majoris. Space objects and others such as the Orion Nebula and things like that. I hope there is an update coming soon...
