Ratings and Reviews
Love this app - as important to me as the weather app
Hands down the first thing I check before I head out for the evening.
If it looks like a good night for viewing I'll generally bring along my camera just in case I find a decent shot.
At the very least it's a great way to introduce friends and family to the night sky. The app provides a way to show them a thing or two about the sky above while giving them a resource to help them gauge wether or not stargazing is possible on any given evening. This app and others like it are a powerful educational and inspirational tool that can really open up a whole new world for most people. It certainly did for me.
I use it to help students in college
I lead Astronomy and Cosmology study groups as an employee of Oakland Community College and stargaze on my own time as well. I use Sky Live (and Stellarium freeware) in tandem when planning stargazing sessions and when aiding students in learning the night sky. I have used at least 20 different apps over the last 4 years, but Sky Live is the ONLY stargazing app that resides at the ready on my iPhone’s first screen. I recommend buying the full version to know at a glance when the ISS will grace your stargazing sessions with its presence.
Great One Stop Tool
I have several tools in my arsenal for projecting sky conditions and other related observing information. But, this is the first one I hit, often several times a day. It's got a simple user interface, is accurate and updated frequently and has no quirks. A pleasure to use in all respects.
