  • Simplicity

    By Master mixologist
    When you’re looking for a well rounded, functional app that delivers what it promises; Sky Guide does just that. An app that functions properly, is updated frequently, and delivers as advertised. I use sky guide on a regular basis. I enjoy the notifications that allow me to see objects overhead that we would otherwise not know were there. I appreciate this tool.
  • Great Fun!
