- What People Are Saying

"Powerful and easy to use, with excellent animation and the widest zoom range." — D.Schroeder, University professor

"GoSkyWatch Planetarium should not be missed regardless of whether you are a casual or hard-core fan of astronomy." — AppAdvice

"I have more than 10 astronomy apps on my iPhone and this is by far the best. Everything I need and easy to use." — Pat, iTunes reviewer

- What makes GoSkyWatch different to other apps?

• Easy to use — No buttons to press or modes to select, just point to the sky to start exploring.

• Designed specially for efficient outdoor use.

• Touch free identification — Information pops up on screen as you move. Great for those cold nights with gloves on!

• Popup images — No need to keep zooming in and out just to see what is out there.

• Full 180 degree display — See at a glance what is in the sky and where without having to pan around.

• Don't need to hold level — Displays the sky view and information at the correct orientation when held at any angle not just landscape or portrait.

• Gyroscope compass auto calibration — No need to calibrate the gyroscope. Advanced adaptive algorithms for smooth and accurate positioning.

• Planets shown with relative brightness to stars — No oversized graphics that prevent you from distinguishing a planet from surrounding stars.

• Unique target identification — Touch drag scheme for greatest accuracy since your finger doesn't hide what you are trying to identify.

• Minimal on screen text — Stars and planets easier to identify since they are not covered by text.

5/5 stars

The BEST app for identifying stars, planets and constellations!

:
This app is the BEST of the bunch! Combined with the iPad, it makes it easy to identify the major heavenly bodies; which is no small feat. The very nature of finding and identifying the stars and planets in your particular slice of the world and at that particular moment in time is daunting at best. Yet, despite all the variables and hurdles that could understandably make this app fall short, it really sings!

Very easy to get the hang of "pointing" the device at the object you want to identify and you can adjust the brightness so the view on screen matches the ambient lighting in your area. The recent upgrade also makes it easy to drill into some detail on the object of choice OR to search by name for an object you want to find. There are lots of little improvements.

I can not say enough about this application and the perfect marriage to the iPad, which makes it all so intuitive, useful and FUN to use. It just works!

0/5 stars

Is either my brand new iPhone or this app is broken

:
Very nice looking app,but everything is offset for about 180 degrees, everything is calibrated right in the device. Unfortunately It feels like waste of money, cause it doesn't work for me. Star walk is the way to go, I made a bad choice, should have go with star walk from the start.

5/5 stars

Great App !!!

:
How does it work??? I'm a full time RVer, travel the country, and it works everywhere ! I've wowed a lot of people with this, including myself. My books were good, but I've learnt a lot more with this. A must buy for anyone with a night sky interest !!!
