Customer Reviews

Splendid (5 stars)
If you like new information and learning about the stars, you couldn't find a better app. Highly suggested.

Thanks for the update! (5 stars)
When I first downloaded this app I was very disappointed cause it wouldn't load at all. But since the update everything it good. It is very easy to use. And does exactly what they describe. Another great thing is ya don't have to be outside for it to work. You can lay in bed and search the stars. And I am glad I got it for free!

Awesome!!!! (5 stars)
I look at stars all the time and usually have trouble remembering their names and any info about them. This app is fantastic for sitting outside just gazing and making sure you know what you are looking at! Love it! They could make it better including links to sites that talk even more about every detail of the star and it's history. But I can check that myself too.
