  • Love it.

    By Sam McKay
    All the data and the background music is awesome. Zooming in on various stars and planets is educational as well as entertaining. I spend so long swimming the skies that I usually run my battery to dead. Spaced out!!! 🤩🧐

    Love this App because it alerts me of when the ISS is going over my area . Also, it alerts of many other space occurrences that I love and enjoy knowing about.
  • Super annoying compass, otherwise excellent app

    By Elmedin Memo
    If compass feature had a normal button, app would be awesome. Like ON/OFF IN PREFERNCES??? Wow, that would be too much to ask! I have paid version and my 4 year old enjoys exploring the planets and stars. But, every move you make it brings back the compass and your app resets the view and points to the compass direction. We probably turn it of 10-20 times in 20 min we spend exploring. Please add setting in preferences to turn compass off and on, for people who don’t want it.
