Dear Stargazer,
This version fixes minor bugs.

  1. My friend and I use this app once or twice a week and really enjoyed the free app. I believe in supporting the apps you find useful. The reason I didn’t give it a five rating was that the objects are not where the app says they are. Others, I see, have the same issue. It’s not off by much but it makes a big difference when trying to identify a “small” object and has led to some escalated conversations.

  2. Paid app is working pretty well. Figure 8 fix doesn’t work well. What I’ve found works is to hold the phone in a position to see the compass and walk in a straight line a few feet one direction, turn, walk back to original location and then you’ll see the compass correct itself, it doesn’t take long and then it shows correctly when you look around

  3. I was using the free version on an older phone and I really love it. So then I got myself a new phone (Samsung A32 5G) and decided to get the paid version of the app. Unfortunately it’s not working well. The objects on the screen are 15 degrees offset to the left compared to reality. I’ve tried doing that figure 8 sensor recalibration maneuver multiple times and it’s still offset by a very visible amount. I hope you guys figure out what’s up with that.

  4. The augmented reality with music honestly makes my evening! I feel like I’m getting a special viewing in some cool observatory. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of Elder Scrolls zone music, which is never a bad thing to be associated with. Regardless, thanks, I love the app, especially the search feature! I can easily locate meteor showers, and any other spectacular events the cosmos has to offer.

  5. Kevin G dice:

    I never buy apps but I had to support this one. I’ve been using the free version for a long time and absoloutly adore the capabilities. Point the camera anywhere, even down through the earth to space on the far side and see what’s all around us. The music is surreal and relaxing as well. Great job on developing such a wonderful learning tool you guys! A+++

  6. I have played with about a dozen of similar apps, liking SkyView and Stellarium the most and finding all the others notably less desirable. The most important criteria for me has been how easy it is to match up the displayed stars with reality and how hard it is on the eyes to switch back and forth. Suggestions for improvements: * Make the constellation art more dimmed (or dimmable) so that it does not overpower the other displayed information. * Similarly, make the thickness of the constellation lines configurable. * Implement a quick-switch display menu, like in Stellarium or Sky Map, so that users do not have to go through multiple clicks to switch on/off constellation lines, art, trajectories, satellites, etc. Ideally a single click from a slide-out menu should do. * Allow the display to to adjust when holding the phone horizontally. Currently the the identified star/constellation name is fixed on the bottom of the display (when held vertically). When the phone is rotated, the name stays in the same location, where it gets obstructed by the hand holding the phone, and the text direction becomes now vertical.

  7. The display moves around even when the phone is sitting on a table. The compass spins on it’s own, particularly when looking, or pointing, toward the southeast. Also, adding the location of comets would help. I mean, that’s one of the biggest reasons a why people want to look at the night sky, to see these, sometimes once in a lifetime, events. I dont believe it’s too much to ask for that the app to point to true north, and hold it.

  8. Each time I get a new phone, I always try at least two other, new to me, sky map apps, I always come back to this one. It’s easy to use. Their screen is stable making it essy to mark the object of interest. There isn’t clutter all over the screen. All the information needed is right on the screen. I love this app and it’s worth the upgrade. A solid five star app.

  9. Love learning the stars. Hope they add a feature that would allow me to snap a picture and freeze the screen so I could easily explore the objects on the screen. Currently it’s difficult to pull up data on an object because you have to aim and click a button when the object is targeted. Also, the display should show the star name and constallation names in a different place. Currently impossible to view both simultaneously.

  10. Spent 5 hours stargazing – works as advertised. Would have liked more instructions on the settings and such, but it’s intuitive enough to sort it out. Loved the accuracy (+/- a few degrees); less enthusiastic about the kitchy options (stargazing music?) but they can be disabled. Well worth the $1.99 Did much more than my free apps ever did. Best feature: They don’t require permissions to unnecessary controls within my phone. Thanks for not requiring invasive permissions like competition does.

  11. Love this app, would like to see a bit more control in the purchased version. If only a toggle switch for location to be turned on when I first pull up the app. Many reasons for location services these days.. good and bad imho. A switch like that I’d have gotten the full version even sooner. Keep up the great work you guys. Switch or no switch im hooked. Just tired of having to remove the app entirely when I might need to roll incognito 😎 Much love and thanks again for such an awesome app💙💚💜

  12. I love this App. But you left one thing out in the picture taking processes. When the tracking circle identifys any object a small description is given in the lower left corner of my phone screen. But after I take a picture, that info is not part of the picture. That would be great when sharing pics on FB so others know what they are looking at. Now with all of the smart people that designed this app. You left off that tiny feature. Thank you

  13. This is objectively the worst app in it’s category. Please choose any of the others. It has no zoom features, and the default is forced upon the paying customer like a punishment. The app also forces the view into only using the phone sensors…so even with a tripod it’s moving all over the place…again making it useless. I would like to block this from appearing in the Play Store so I don’t accidentally install it at a later date forgetting what a waste of time it is.

  14. Middle of the road, I upgraded to track the E3 comet but it doesn’t show up in search. More disappointed in that than anything. Love being able to track satellites though & now I’ve upgraded, all the space junk too 🙂

  15. It’s worth the $2 for pro version for Satellite Live I’d if nothing else. See a satellite, point your camera and the App tells you which one is there. Needs a large DB and a toggle and slide to display or remove them. ALSO needs Messier and Small scope visible Deep Sky objects with a slide and toggle. This would finding a location easy to let you know where to point the scope if you are not using coordinates. Lastly, Slides bars need graduated markings.

  16. I absolutely love ❤️ this app! It check it at least twice a day/night. It doesn’t just show you stars and planets and constellations, it shows you all the space junk that humans have left out there. Like rocket bodies and satellites and all that stuff. Is very interesting.

  17. Took a chance checking out the ‘free version’ and could not believe how great that was! Seriously. So I had to upgrade after that experience. And it was completely worth it. I started in/before 2008 . No regrets ever!

  18. Old problems went away after I bought new phone, Samsung A32, problem doesn’t exist on this device. Have been using this Application for a few years. Many useful features and very educational for beginners and pros alike.

  19. Frank dice:

    I have been using the free version of this app for a long time. I figured it’s time to support the developers and buy the app. I am on an S10+. This app works perfect on my device. Shows MUCH more compared to the free version. Simple and easy to use.

  20. Ori Sonik dice:

    A few years ago I used to use the app very often… for the last ~2 years it’s been getting worse. The app does not follow new smartphones, upgraded OS (Android)… Samsung Note 10 could not view the sky properly since 2020, the S22 Ultra cannot show the sky either. All the user gets is just a one colour shaded background with grey squares imitating stars or other objects. The app’s gone the worst way – no support, no innovations, no future for it as well 🙂 Shame! Edit: no changes after updates

  21. I saw how incredible this app can be on my sisters iPhone. I searched for a free version on android but had no luck. Since I had seen the app in action I had confidence in paying the fee for the android version. I have to say I am extremely disappointed with the quality of the app on the samasung s22. This looks like an amateur imitation of the “lite” version on apple and that is also free. Please make the necessary improvements via updates or provide me with a refund.

  22. Unfortunately it just doesn’t work very well. I get nagged to buy even after buying, I get asked to share my data so the app can be given for free, even though I paid for it. The direction is inaccurate and doesn’t match what’s in the sky. The concept is good and the app has a lot of potential and a lot of work has been put into it, but it just needs a little more tweaking.

  23. This is super easy to navigate and the images are wonderful with the addition of descriptions. I watched the Hubble Telescope move through space just above the horizon.

  24. Jacob G dice:

    App does not work at all. Removed case, did many figure 8’s, drove to different locations, and the compass is still way off so nothing in the sky lines up correctly making the app completely useless. Google pixel 3 – requested a refund

  25. Marvin dice:

    All I can say is wow. An app has to be pretty darn amazing to get me to buy it, but this is definitely one. Mind you, this isn’t for scientific stargazing. Objects may be off by a couple of degrees but it does what it’s supposed to do, it gives you the general idea where and what the object is supposed to be, even on the opposite side of the earth. Outstanding job Terminal Eleven

  26. WOW…..just wow. Amazing app. Beautiful music plays in the background(which you can turn off in settings)….and displays stars, planets, and constellations in such a clear and precise way. A must have for those of us who still look up. GOD bless!

  27. I find it hard to find anything as objects are never where they appear to be. It would be great if you could manually adjust your field of view so that objects line up with their real positions.

  28. Lo Floyd dice:

    The very best SkyView!! Provides any and all information you can imagine about what’s above in the cosmos. Fantastic app highly recommend a download and purchase worth the buy. Guaranteed to delight and educate anyone with an interest in space, the planets, constillations, or satellites. Absolutely love it.

  29. The best! Incredibly accurate. Easy to navigate, free(no interrupt from ads) & paid(well worth the $1.95 1x fee). Thank you to the creators. Fantastic, all around.

  30. Decent App 4 Stargazing. Maps can be slightly off but for general identification of planets and stars it’s worth it. I enjoy the pictures that overlay celebrate bodies with physical ones here on Earth.

  31. S22 ultra. The app visuals are nothing as the picture says and everything is dimmed down so you cant really see what you are looking for. Also there is a photo with a quick settings but cant find it either. Terrible

  32. Anyone having issues after the recent update. Try and clear app data & cache from settings on your device. My app kept crashing until I cleared app data. You will need to set your preferences again though i.e music on/off etc.

  33. Application is great. Putting 1 star just to draw developers’ attention to a bug. Camera does not make photos on Xiaomi Mi Mix2. It works on other phones. Will fix the rating after getting response about the bug.

  34. The best app out there of this kind – unless you own an S22 Ultra, in which case it’s useless as everything is displayed as blocks. It’s been like this for months which makes me wonder what it is about this handset that stops the app from working? Some form of software licensing, maybe?

  35. Switching to Galaxy S22, well, graphics are gone. They have this alpha cover now that just make this app usable. S10 was great, but with S22 – gone. Must be Switching to something better as my work flow is now jeopardized. But hey, nice to see an update after 5 years… I guess.

  36. L. Bogdan dice:

    Not working properly now on Samsung S22 ultra with latest update from today, but runs as expected on my old S10. Augmented camera feature is mostly dark I can barely see the stars planets shapes etc. I will give it 5 stars back when they fix this.

  37. This is the best thing I’ve ever downloaded. I don’t buy apps but, after using the free version for an evening, I upgraded to the full app the next day. I noticed the ‘spinny effect’ on start up seem to be the app calibrating itself. I thought it was broken at first, reset my location from manual to automatic and back. It might be an idea to add a ‘calibrating..’ to future updates.

  38. Great App for viewing. Was wondering if the lack of satelites,rocket bodies in northern hemisphere is because the south pole is actually housing an alien base and the old rocket bodies could conceal a missle to be used against any alien threats.

  39. Mind. Blown. I had no idea such an AMAZING Astronomy app exists. The full version is laughably cheap for what you get w/satellite data. I can’t say thank you enough for using your powers for Science <3

  40. So I had the free version with ads and thought what a cool app this is, so I went and purchased the full app & much to my annoyance, the augmented star map that is the whole purpose of the app is so wobbly! It jitters around and is moving in such a way that would be expected if you were in the back of a ute tray during a 4WD adventure. As a result of this, it has rendered the app utterly useless.
