  • Want to see a shooting star?

    By Steve196
    My 3 year old son and I hear an alert on my phone: 6 minutes to an Iridium Flare. He calls them shooting stars. We drop everything and run outside, rushing to the darkest spot in the neighborhood we can find. It’s not that dark, but it doesn’t have to be. We point my phone to the sky and see the path the Iridium satellite will take and watch. A bright shining light grows suddenly in the night sky right where the app points us and his smile and sense of wonder grows with it. It’s over in a few seconds but we talk about it for the rest of the night. Thank you all for this little feature in an already amazing app. Thank you for these moments, and for introducing my son to the world beyond our world. If I could give you 6 stars for this review I would.
  • The new update is a game changer

    By pijinpuup
    Before the update, I used this app only for seeing what stars I need to find to align my telescope. Now, it has so many nice things. It tells you upcoming events, like eclipses, meteor showers or when the moon comes apparently close to a planet or star. It also shows weather and light pollution in great detail. Money well spent.
  • Incredible

    The best app on my iPhone. And now the best app that offers the best Siri shortcut. Incredible.
  • Sometimes I can just gaze for hours.

    Might I add this app is quite “Stellar”
  • Stunning app

    By george cassello
    This has been one my favorites for years. It’s just wonderful. But this update. Wow. This is hands down the most incredible app I’ve ever used on my phone. The new sections. The calendar. Gorgeous. And amazing information. Bravo to the team that has designed, developed and maintained this app. Outstanding folks.
  • Great stargazing companion!

    By jakebellacera
    I’ve had this app for years and it never fails to disappoint. My wife and I go on walks every evening and we always like to look up and see what is in the sky. I’ve also found it very useful with friends while sitting around the campfire. The gyroscopic features helps identify what is in the sky, and the search features tell me where to look. It’s really an excellent app that is simple to use and understand.
  • Hands down!!

    By Sian17
    This is best app ever I have. Recently, this app updated and I love it. Also, they added light pollution. It’s really helpful to find really dark place to take pictures of stars even you are on travel. It’s easy. I don’t have to rely on people. Thank you!!
  • no way to turn music off

    By gbhjiiged
    there is a switch in preferences but it is not working. loud music like that makes the app unusable.
  • The ABSOLUTE best

    By Teku45
    As a pro photographer that specializes in astrophotography and deep space photography, I use sky guide as my go to for all needs. The new features in iOS 12 add so much functionality. I handily recommend this app and it is SO worth the purchase for the full version.
  • update is amazing

    By Gözcü
    feels like a few different apps all combined into one. you can now see the weather, light pollution in your area and where to go for the best view of the sky and important events like meteor showers and eclipses. the ui is also very smooth and will go well with iOS 12. my favorite new app!!!
