  • Best Star guide ever

    By Neuzle
    This celestial guide is the first app to be installed on my phone and did I ever get lucky! It not only maps out the constellations and other heavenly bodies but superimposes the diagrams of the figures named for the constellation as well. Not only that but beautiful otherworldly music flows throughout. So much more instructional information and notifications are included. I highly recommend this app for anyone interested in sky gazing!
  • My Favorite App

    By Edhvoice
    We all have favorite Apps. Mine is Sky Guide. It does an absolute first rate job of helping me identify stars, planets and satellites when we take our evening walk. With Sky Guide, you will be notified of ISS or other satellite passes with 5 minutes advance warning. You will be able to identify stars and planets instantly, and with a touch dive into the database for in depth information. It is such a joy. I guarantee that it will not become part of your App clutter.. you will use it!
