James webb telescope

This app is great! Although i do hope you fix the bugs soon! The calibration is sometimes poor and objects are misaligned. Also when are you going to add the james webb telescope?

Love this app!

I tried a few others but this app is the best. Easy to find what I’m seeing in the sky fast. Even finds satellites. I’ve told many friends who are also enjoying it too. Thanks for helping me ID formations and planets.

No subscription!

Love the app. Very smooth UI and great views of the sky that aren’t super cluttered like other apps. The major factor in my purchase is the fact that there are no subscriptions.

SkyView a great choice

I really enjoy this app. The detail is fantastic. My only wish is that if it shows an object I’d like to be able to select. For example there is an object, and I don’t know what it is that is blue and midway between Vega and E02 lyr and I can’t select it. I suppose a zoom feature would be good. I understand that there is a practical limitation to objects and database size.
