Do you remember the thrill you experienced the first time you saw Jupiter or Saturn through a telescope? If so, Gas Giants is a must for your iOS library!

Gas Giants lets you peer through a simulated telescope to observe Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune and their major moons, as they appear right now, or at any date and time.

Amateur astronomers, teachers, scout leaders, astronomy club members or anyone who uses a telescope or binoculars to view the night sky will love Gas Giants.

Gas Giants requires an iPhone 3GS or later, or an iPod Touch 3rd Generation or later (specifically, OpenGL ES 2.0 or later) to run. All iPad models are supported.

Good, but please update for the notch!

App is simple and does what it's supposed to, so that's always appreciated!

However, the iPhone X and similar models have been out for nearly two years, and the Saturn and Uranus tabs are covered by the screen notch. Please update to mitigate this!

Nails it

Can you see Jupiter's red spot? Which moon is Titan? I used to look this info up but this app makes it all faster and does it so well that it has earned it's place on my in my Astronomy collection. My only minor nit is that if you want to get the positions for more than a day in the future it's a pain - you have to change the app settings. Why not just put this functionality in the rolling time control with a go to now button?

Still awesome to this day!

i love this app. imo the best part about it is if you are able to see the gas giants moons through your telescope, you are able to identify which moons you are looking at. one thing that would be awesome is if you made an app like this that showed mercury, venus, an especially earth and mars because they have moons.
