One download for your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. We don't think you should pay twice for the same app on a bigger screen. --- 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.

    ...every time i reset my phone (about once a year) its impossible to find the app to re-download it. Goskywatch is not categorized under stars, stargazing, star watching or even “sky”. So it always takes me 10 minutes to remember the un-memorable name of the app. Which apparently isnt searchable in the app store unless we all remember the apps name.
  • Random crashes

    Awesome app. I use in the airplane where my iPad is connected to a WAAS enabled Bluetooth GPS receiver that knows my position within a few feet, and sends this info to the iPad or iPhone. Dev team, please get your app to use this info, it is a pain to enter LAT/LONG, especially when moving at 500 mph.
  • Amazing app

    This app gives the user useful and essential information about Nearly every natural object in the sky. If that wasn’t great enough, it helps the user find and identify each object. It’s simply amazing. I wish I could give it more stars.
  • Anytime Anyplace
