"Sanderson - I have dabbled with astronomy for 30 years, star maps, celestial co-ordinates, Patrick moores year book but this app renders them all obsolete. It makes locating stars and planets Childs play!"

"I am amazed! - I love this app! It does exactly as promised. Got a telescope for Christmas and hated not know what I was looking at or where to find what I wanted to look at. This app made stargazing a million times better for me and my kids!"

Great but..

Good app. They are deffo onto something but this needs improvements still. I.E. outline of constellations, back button, gui update . . Otherwise great! Had this app since my iPhone 3GS, now use a 6 Plus. And you CAN in fact restore purchases. All you have to do is try and purchase the add on again and you will receive a message stating you already bought it and press "ok" to download again for free.

This reliable application invigorates my child-like wonder

I am 100% void of conventional sight but, for the past few years I have been thrilled that with Apple's VoiceOver feature on my iPhones and this remarkable Planet Finder application, I can always point exactly to where the heavenly bodies in our amazing solar-system are located! Everyone I show off using this great Planet Finder to are constantly amazed that a blind person can always show & tell sighted people where the moon is in the night sky. I love having every feature unlocked and Planet Finder is worth far more than I paid to utilize its comprehensive up to the seconds knowledge... Thank you! 🌞🌝☄️🌟

Good but one thing

Yes I like the fact that it’s perfectly finds planets but the thing is why do we have to buy to see constellations?? Or satellites it doesn’t really make sense but I guess that’s how it is gonna be

Because I downloaded this app to look at andromeda through my brand new $900 telescope and u had to buy it but ya that’s it still a good planet finder so I’ll give u a four star
