- 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 astronomy apps?

• Easy to use — No buttons to press or modes to select, just point to the sky to start exploring.

• Designed specifically for efficient outdoor use.

• Touch free identification — No need to keep touching the screen to identify what you see in the sky. Great for those cold nights with gloves on!

• 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. Advanced adaptive algorithms for smooth and accurate positioning.

• Unique target identification — Touch drag scheme for greatest accuracy and speed since your finger doesn't actually cover what you are trying to identify.

• Planets shown with relative brightness to stars — No oversized graphics that prevent you from distingishing a planet from surrounding stars.

• Full 180 degree display — See at a glance what is in the sky and where without having to pan around.

• Minimal on screen text — Stars and planets easier to identify since they are not covered by text.

• Popup images — No need to keep zooming in and out just to see what is out there.

Love it!

:
I am a retired astronomy teacher who wishes that this had been available years ago. I may have to go back to teaching.

Best Astronomy Apps

:
I have several astronomy apps and GoSkyWatch is by far the best of the bunch. It makes the best use of the iPad's GPS and accelerometer of any astronomy apps I have seen. The sky on the display changes according to the angle of the iPad. Just point the back of the iPad at an object in the night sky and GoSkyWatch will identify it. Unlike other apps I have used it works perfectly in landscape or portrait mode. I highly recommend this app!

4/5 stars

Great

:
This is a must have for anybody who likes to look at the stars, especially if you are in a city and can't see all of them because of light pollution.
