Pretty accurate and easy to use Best of the several apps I have used                Best of the star gazer apps I have used
Very good application for the price Very helpful                Terrific App
I keep coming back to this ipad app as my default backyard reference Quick to initialize and simple to use                best general purpose astronomy app
I demand a refund    Bad
Moon is more than 90 degrees off from oObserved position in sky    SkyWarch
As a young man setting up my telescope was like turning on a universal TV Ah to see the rings of Saturn for a fleeting second that was fun This app is pure magic and will have you pointing your phone up to the night sky and wondering why Perseus in his winged boots came to the rescue of Andromeda when she was being attacked by the sea monster Cetus Lots of fun                Perfect
Easy not frustrating and fast to find what your looking for This app stays on top of the list of apps I use because its just that simple             One of the TOOLS thats always on TOP
good job                great
Its like having an Observatory in My Backyard                Awesome App
Have used this for years Still great                Wonderful
I downloaded this app years ago for my iPod and I still use it to this day on my iPhone 6 Always reliable informative and most importantly fun Great app                Great app
I was very happy with this app                Very very good
Ever since Atari Planetarium Ive bought highend consumer apps This app exceeds my knowledge of how to make full use of itIt just gets better betterSUPERB                Whats NOT to Like
I did not know that we can see planets with our naked eyes The GoSky Watch App confirms that what you thought was just a very bright star was actually a planet On a clear night I spotted Venus and Jupiter                Cool App
I know nothing about astronomy but this app lets me identify stars and constellations with ease its exactly what I wanted It was recommended by the astronomer who does star walks for the local planetarium she uses it herself with the complicated options enabled                Great for amateurs and experts
Best starconstellationplanetarygalactic location app out there I always go to this before I look through my telescope                Wonderful
Excellent tool I was able to use it and answer all my kids questions This is amazing tool We go camping a lot and it is very useful Lots of information based on what the night is Great                Excellent tool
Great app Very helpful for my very amateur star gazing Used it last night and this morning to view the Perseid meteor shower             Very helpful
This is a wonderful appand great for keeping track of the night sky                Handy and interesting
Wonderful app if you are curious about whats going in the sky around you You will learn a lot                Go sky watch
Wonderful app great on the iPhone where its easily carried on nighttime walks                Superb
This application is ok I havent figured out how to adjust the settings so it can identify what I can see It seems to show everything Id like the screen to identify only the brightest objects Otherwise its a good and helpful application The only stargazing app I have and Ive had it for years Great features             My star finder
A clear view of the stars is a forgotten part of the human experience an experience that can be found by pointing this App at the skyor the ground try it                Find your place within the heavens
This app combines fun and education at the same time                Excellent app
Love this app My Grandsons use it a lot                Great App
I own and have used a number of these type of apps this one is the best for immediately knowing what objects are in a certain part of the sky Invaluable for hunting objects with a telescopeDevelopers please please add scaling telrad overlay Well done though                Awesome app for stargazers
I used this app for my Astronomy project it proved to be instrumental when charting the night sky I learned a lot through this app Its only 400 but performs like a 1000 app I highly recommend this app to anyone studying astronomy or simply interested in the night sky My physics teacher also recommended it and notes that it is the best astronomy app hes seen                Fantastic App
All the objects you try to line up are off quite a bit I held it up to the moon and the moon was actually way off to the right Otherwise its pretty good          Stars are not in the right place
It is so much fun to go camping with this app and star gaze on a clear night                This app is awesome
It doesnt work to show you whats in the sky where you point your device unless you let it have your location data EVEN if you specify a location Conspiracy data mining application    Not worth the money
When out and about this is one of my favorite apps I like being able to point at a starplanet and find out which one it is I like showing people that if you find Jupiter you can see the moons with a decent set of binoculars They are always pleasantly surprised                Amazing App
Great tool I always take it camping and use it with our telescopes to align the gotoLove it                It Just Works
No complaints Easy to use the first time but tons of features to grow into They thought of everything                Best night sky app
One of the very best apps of any type out here Get it You wont be disappointed                Amazing
I didnt appreciate this app as an inveterate Brooklynite What sky Reflected light and helicopters thats sky ThenI was on Siesta Key and the night sky was staggering I had to redownload this app I love the color and the narration I love seeing the constellations Oh so beautiful Now in Brooklyn I used it to find bright planets Tonight I found Luna behind clouds and Mars straight down through the Earth LOVE THIS APP                This App is Heaven in Your Hand
My boys were enthralled by the night sky even more so than when I showed them an astrolabe                Love it
Yep its a fantastic astronomy app It is amazing to simply hold the phone up point it to a speed of location in the sky and see the beauty of our solar system right in my device I used to check social media all timenow Im checking this If the developers will just add a beaming feature so I can transport up to the sky Id be in heaven Literally Thank you for developing this Has brought me many happy hours                Fantastic
This app is so on target it matches exactly to our HD Telescope The data is exactly the same as what our scope reads Its fun and educational Great Job Well worth the 4                Undeniably the most accurate Sky
Only five stars available but this app is definitely a 10                Need I say more
Fabuloso app                Excelente
I tried several different planetarium apps but this one was by far the best I am a science teacher and dabble in amateur astronomy I find its advanced features fit what I need quite well                Great App
What a treat to look up and wonder what that star is and remember oh I have goskywatch lets check it and see It is easy to use and fun as well One of the best apps Ive ever installed I recommend it highly                The best goto app for amateur skywatchers
