  • Lacking in the watch department

    By Windytttttt
    Really wished the Apple Watch app was not a completely useless app. Hope the devs can port gyro function on the watch app

    I did a lot of research and trying of all the star gazing apps a few years ago and this one easily came on top... years later it is several times better! I am left speechless with its current state. From a phenomenal night vision mode, to the apple style news that super nicely shows all events coming up as well as space related news, to a great light pollution map, to notifications, to an amazing AR mode... this isn’t just the best sky gazing app, it is one of the best APPS ever! Just so freaking great in every way at what it does. It sets a bar for all apps to follow.
  • Heavenly!!

    I opened the Sky Guide app today after the first time in awhile. Today is January 20th, 2019 and a lunar eclipse will be visible in my area in just a couple hours. I have loved Sky Guide since the day I downloaded the app years ago. I have continued to be impressed with attention to detail the developers have added to this app and continue to use every aspect of the iPhone’s functionality to provide the best UI/UX possible for astronomy lovers everywhere. I have never really posted a thorough review of an app before on the App Store, but this app deserves way more than five stars. I am genuinely impressed time and time again every time I open the app on my iPhone XS. Thank you to the Sky Guide team for creating such a tool!
