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.

    I've used this app for years now! No problems with the iOS 10.3.2. I have shown nearly all my friends this app. Yea its a high dollar app! But for me to be able to set my telescope up and quickly go to what I want. That's amazing!! All the children I let look at it love it. When I get my telescope on the area they go WILD!!

    The sky watch app does not work nor does it move. It gets stuck. Does not orient it self even if I push it around with my finger.
  • Go sky watch is great!

    I use this app all the time and love how it’s so easy. I’m always getting asked about it by others around watching me blurt out planet locations like I’m smart or something.
  • One of my favorite apps!

    This app is the best for answering the question: what star is that. It's great for first dates too!

    Having been fascinated with night sky observations forever, I find this the perfect companion app. If your interest is mythology and constellations, they’ve included a link to background info on each. Star magnitude, clusters, planets are all a setting and finger click away to enhance your night sky experience. Love this app!!
  • Almost perfect

    This has great depth of information and the live tracking is simply amazing. The only flaw I’ve found is that it’s very modal. Once it’s tracking, it will no longer “go to” an object. It will only put arrows around it.
  • This AP is Great!!!
