App Reviews

  • Two things in the way

    By dpmadd
    Two things are making this app too frustrating to use for me. Every time I open the app a huge add appears (for the Grand Orrery) that requires a long scroll to dismiss. That’s very frustrating. When the app finally opens, and I’m looking at a part of the sky that usually contains objects I’m interested in, the Milky Way, as represented in the app, makes seeing objects almost impossible. For some reason the way this app represents the Milky Way looks like an acid trip, Loaded with bright colors and a very complex. I haven’t been able to find anything in the preferences to turn this off, or to make it look more naturalistic. Strangely if I select “real sky representation“, it makes all the planets pin sized, but the Milky Way remains Day-Glo red and purple. This essentially makes it even harder to see objects against the app representation of the Milky Way.
  • Notifications need refinement

    By DeansReview
    A nice app but I couldn’t see a way to disable the notification telling me that night viewing conditions were good. The only workaround was to disable notifications completely via iOS settings. Perhaps I missed an option somewhere in the app but it wasn’t obvious.
  • Any instructions for this app?

    Just updated 1/20/19. Now it won't open
  • It doesn’t work

    I am frustrated
  • Would be better if the app could access the time

    By Kay_Rock
    The app is telling me right now that the moon is below the horizon and won’t rise until 6:03pm. Which is hilarious because it is currently 6:25pm and I can see the moon just fine. I set all permissions. It should easily know what time it is. I have no idea what time it THINKS it is because there is no clock to fix or set. It does know my location, so you think it could figure the time out. Astronomy without accurate time is ludicrous. I guess I get to explore the recent past, but that’s about it. Maybe it’s a trick and you have to pay for that “feature,” but I’m not about to give them money if this feature is suspect. Deleting.
  • Good memories

    By @Sigil
    I purchased this app almost three years ago for either 3 or 4 bucks. I used it much that summer then sparingly after that. The app has changed; it has become "free" the functionality that I remember is now a subscription. I remember being annoyed that the price dropped to .99 after I purchased it. (Many Devs use to do this as some form of marketing.) However, it was such a fun app that I got over it. I know this was an attempt to generate revenue and I wanted the app to succeed. That said, some devs are now switching over to a subscription model and eliminating their "lite" "free" version or going freemium. I digress. I would rather they simply made a new version. Over, PicLab/DesignLab and many others are doing this.. Even VSCO... frustrating.. I don't use this app enough for a subscription.
  • Needs a complete rewrite

    By xgh
    I used to love this app but lately find I no longer use it. Far too many distractions with requests for camera access, notifications and paying for premium features. Too much emphasis on paying for optional stuff. Constant interruptions. I guess the objective is to get you to buy just to get rid of the annoyances. Not a good enough reason for me, Night Sky is what I’m getting rid of. Probably the most annoying aspect of the app is it’s poor (dreadful) organization. If you don’t want to pay to play the next notice is a recommendation to turn off some functionality. Finding any setting to turn off such functionality has so far eluded me. The app is like a home that’s been added onto too often and patched together with no thought given to getting around within it. A poor reflection on the developer.
  • Decent app but camera still broken

    By mambabo
    I like this app because the free version is still very functional, but the video mode in astrophotography setting has crashed the app on my iPhone X every single time I’ve tried to use it for at least 6 months now. It used to work - and they keep releasing updates so I was hoping since the most recent update addressed camera stuff that they would have fixed the iPhone X too, but nope, still crashes 100% of the time.
