I’ve had this app for years now and it’s been worth every penny. It makes my inner child happy to be able to put names to constellations I’ve seen since I was a kid. Sometimes the alignment can be slightly off, for example Orion is located more left on the on screen map than it is in the sky. But you can still figure it out really easy, even in a high lit area like a big city.
Simply, this is the easiest to use, easiest to understand, most informative sky-gazing app I've used. I've deleted all the others on my device!....(four years later)and since I originally wrote this review, this app has gotten even better. Still shamelessly simple to use but now they’ve added gobs of information for each star, planet, and constellation. This is an excellent app!
I’ve had this app for many moons now and it keeps getting better and better. It’s super easy to use and that just makes the experience so much better because you can actually focus and appreciate what you’re seeing, be present in the moment Instead of messing around with options and tweaks. The simplest is often the best!
Starlight is a beautiful, fun, informative app! Everything I need for a bit of star gazing right in the palm of my hand. The illustrations are lovely, and I love the way the stars connect into constellations as you pan towards them! I also love that you can click on the stars or planets and get information about them. This is a very sleek looking app with good design and performance.
Recently downloaded a few star gazing apps and they all are very clunky and over designed. This one was simple yet smart and user friendly. I’ve since deleted all others and have this as my go-to regularly.
Just when I thought the night sky couldn’t get any better!! Then here comes an app that will help you learn about it!! This is officially my most favorite app! Thank you to those that created it, what a wonderful thing you have made!!
First time I used this tonight and I was amazed! This is a beautiful app!!! The display is awesome. There is so much information packed into the app as well! Love this app and will be using it on a regular basis. Thanks to the developer!
This is so cool. The graphics of the constellations, the info on individual stars, being able to find planets by just following the arrow is super easy. I use this app almost daily, oops 😁 I mean nightly. 💫🌙
I have used this app for years. It is the best app for casual stargazing. I have tried other apps but nothing rises to the challenge. Even tho it is not free anymore, it’s worth the 99 pennies it costs.
This app is the best for viewing celestial objects and assisting in recognizing constellations and planets real time. Just point your phone at the heavens and immediately see the positions of the constellations and planets.
For a long time now, sky orientation does not match up with the app. I point my iPad to a compass direction, and the display shows a night sky which represents some other direction of night sky objects.
This version is a complete mess. Point the iPad South, the app says it’s North. Or East. Or West. But never South. Flips to portrait mode by itself and won’t flip back without being force quit. Really very useless.
Ever since it updated to 14.0 it doesn’t work. It opens in a static position facing north even though I’m pointing south and if I tap it to re-orient, it jumps to another static position below the horizon.
Point your iPhone or iPad like a magic lens into the night sky, and see in real time what stars, planets, and constellations hover above. Stargazing has never been so easy!
