I have used SkySafari Pro for many years. I use it to control three telescopes I own. This SkySafari program is more basic and is
excellent for people who are more casual observers and not using telescopes. It provides a very good sky map and a wealth of

'Simply Wow!!'

'Got a reference from an astronomy group when I accidentally spotted Mars and asked questions for it. Absolutely loved it from the
day I installed it. \nThe best part is there’s no annual subscription involved, makes sense as I am gonna use it that
frequently. Just one addition that I would like t

'Bought pro 2 minutes later'

'Should have just bought pro. Did 2 minutes later and wasted $3 on this version. Bummer. excited for pro though. Make sure you
compare the different versions because these is no path to upgrade. I use my phone a lot when doing public events with my
astronomy club and the pro is a much better fit.'

'We love this app. It’s absolutely amazing. As a bonus, My young daughter falls asleep to the Pluto background music /
soundtrack, but we must keep the iPad screen on for it to play. Please allow for the sound to stay on while the screen is off.
Like Spotify does. Etc. THANKS FOR THE GREAT APP!!

'Sky Safari is the best by far.'

'It’s awesome. I’ve always had curiosity about the stars. This app is great for identifying stars, constellations and planets.
Click anything, press info and learn more about it. I’ve learned how to use this app to the maximum by going into the settings
and getting everything I want and more.

'We really enjoy this app. We have learned so much. It’s fascinating to look at the sky and identify the stars. We live in a

get (\"dec sine curve\" in day/night background);\n- include local weather condition;\n- augmented reality to help site visibility
of objects.\n\nThanks!'

Not worth the money!

Was excited at first to try it, but was a bit of a let down once I paid the initial $2.99. Keeps trying to get you to pay even
more for stuff that I thought would be included in the price I initially paid. It also doesn’t move around as you do, like apps
such as SkyView do! It’s also not easy to man

AR doesn’t work

AR does nor work when I set a time first. If I open the app and let it stay on the current time, AR will work, but if I change the
time manually the use AR all I get is a live view without any AR.
