App Reviews

  • Great for novices

    By Retired But not Dangerous
    This app is so easy to use even when it is cloudy you can see where stars, planets, etc. are located. And I love seeing all of the satellites and am disappointed at how many pieces-parts are floating around out there. My brother got me interested in this app. It's very helpful to those of us who don't have constellations memorized.
