    Does exactly what I needed. Two things though. One is that the search doesn’t seem to bring up the satellite I’m interested in. If I find it by category and then type the exact name in, search doesn’t find it. The other, would be nice for a future release, would be if the user could enter a two line element set for an object not in the database.
  • Search Function Broken

    Try to search for Satellites that I know are in the database, but the app says "no results". For example with the Saudisat satellites: type "Saudi" into the search bar, and you get "no results". However Saudisat SO-50 is in the database, you just have to browse through all the categories of Satellites until you find it; but you can't find it using the search tool. This is a serious impediment to using this app. Try searching for ISS or Zarya, and you get "no results". This would be a 10 star app if the search function worked.

    Please update. This used to be an awesome app when it worked.
  • Doesn’t see everything

    I wanted an app which allows me to point at a satellite moving overhead and have the app ID what I see. It doesn’t. You have to go through every category and guess what it is. If I can see it, it should be able to be seen in the “Brightest” category. I like the augmented reality. But if I can see it, it should be visible.
  • Updated and working again!!!

    This app is awesome but it doesn’t work with iOS 11. I’m still giving 5 stars because it will probably be fixed soon. Edit: seeing as the last update was 3 years ago and iOS 11 has been out for months this app likely won’t work for a long time. Edit 2 thankfully the app was updated, works fine. 5 stars.
  • Amazing and trustworthy and helpful

    This app is really fun to use for me because I am in 5th grade and my favorite subject is Science, the solar system, (etc.) you name it! I know this app is true because when I see the moon outside at night/evening I see the moon then I look at Sky View and see the real thing! Satellites is fun too, but Sky View is this👌much better!

    I love this app but I can’t use it now until there’s an update. Will they update it??
  • OS 11 update

    The app needs an update for OS 11, and to include the newer Chinese space station Tiangong 2. Also a lunar map/globe is needed for the google lunar xprise and Chinese lunar landings.
  • Do not buy until they update it

    Was a great app until ios11 broke it. They still haven’t updated it so if you have iOS 11 it won’t work. Hope they fix it someday
