Great for figuring out the night sky

Definitely worth the price.
Just a great app
By: Mvahle - Sep 26, 2010
Totally worth the cost, particularly if you have multiple iOS devices. Fun and informative.

Love this app! Ended a couple of arguments the other might!

This program is so worth the money! It is very easy to use and will solve any question you have about the stars and planets.

I am just a guy that used to look at the night sky and wonder...Now I am a guy that looks at the night sky and knows! This is a great app. I have never reviewed an app before, but this one deserves it. Definitely worth the money.
Best Astronomy app out there but......

Great views, great features!!! For once I dont feel like an idiot for spending multiple dollars on an app!!! My only area of opportunity would be that it's off by 10-15 degrees. It used to be dead-on but I dont know if it was an update or what but the sky is off set by a large enough margin to make it slightly annoying at the moment. Fix that and you have a perfect app. GOOD JOB OVERALL!!!

Excellent for one little thing

I have had a chance to use GoSkyWatch for about 2 months. I am still facinated at how good it is. Despite its little flaw (which I am sure will be seen to) it is well worth the money. The one littel flaw is that it does not account for magenetic variation (the difference between true north and magnetic north). I live in an area that has about 20 degree of magnetic variaion so when I point my iPad to the North Star it is about 20 degrees off in azimuth. It is annoying but I understand and compensate for it. However, when I show off GoSkyWatch most people do not understand but are still amazed by the beauty and accuracy of the display. While walking my dogs I ran into a high school astronomy class. The students went from an almost total disintrest to awe as we picked out stars and planets. The teacher's comment was a very understandable, "I got to get me one of them!" When you see it, you will probably agree.
Love this app

I love to use this app, it is so cool to look up at the sky and know what u are looking at.
By: jpw914 - Sep 24, 2010
Its a great app but needs to update time and position on it's own on startup. Also after updating those previously stated it is still a bit off.
By: Roberto Estivon - Sep 23, 2010
It's sweet and so cool
I live it, but...
By: Chuychullito - Sep 23, 2010
I love the app but I find that many times it is not completely accurate.
By: GEOLAST - Sep 23, 2010
I Luv GSW , easy to use , fun , and very informative
By: award88 - Sep 23, 2010
This app is great. It is extremely accurate. The other night someone pointed to a star and said that is Jupiter and I pointed my phone at it and confirmed it was indeed Jupiter. Five stars if a live video overlay is added where it shows the map over my camera's image.

Love it. It takes a while to learn it has so many features it can be a bit daunting. Great fun when you get the hang of it.
By: Star girl o8 - Sep 22, 2010
I really enjoy this app! Very fun and helpful if your interested in the night sky! Wish there could be more information on what you are looking at but otherwise a great deal!

Is either my brand new iPhone or this app is broken
By: System-work.com - Sep 21, 2010
Very nice looking app,but everything is offset for about 180 degrees, everything is calibrated right in the device. Unfortunately It feels like waste of money, cause it doesn't work for me. Star walk is the way to go, I made a bad choice, should have go with star walk from the start.
Great App !!!
By: RomeoC2Sea - Sep 20, 2010
How does it work??? I'm a full time RVer, travel the country, and it works everywhere ! I've wowed a lot of people with this, including myself. My books were good, but I've learnt a lot more with this. A must buy for anyone with a night sky interest !!!
Wow! WYSIWYG !
By: Marbillh - Sep 20, 2010
Wow! WYSIWYG ! This app is much better than expected; very rare. It is a star chart; hold it up to compare the screen to the night sky. It is like magic paper, it moves as the screen moves across the sky. Shows all the features: object names, constellations and much more. It is accurate. Really awesome!
By: Fluevog - Sep 20, 2010
Great app. Takes a little learning curve, but very educational. Did a search for best star watching app online and this was rated best overall. It did not disappoint. Fun fun fun
