This eclipse app is okay. You can select a location and it'll tell you the four timings for contact (first, totality, exiting totality, and last). My huge complaint is that I purchased the app but the audio alarms are a "pro" feature that requires their subscription service. Who wants to spend their viewing experience looking at their phone to check time when they should be looking at the sky? The audio warnings/alarms should be included, I can get the timings for free from the internet.

The app is a full-featured mobile planetarium rather than a simple eclipse timer. To enjoy the audio timers & many more advanced features of the app, as well as enjoy larger object databases & in-depth content, you activate the FREE premium trial for 7 days. Even forgetting to cancel would have only been $1.99 & $2.98 total.. Incredible value.

Honestly, save your money for pro/+ if you're looking for a stargazing app for a telescope. Free sky safari does everything this does, The UI's are just nicer. I was impressed with the new UIs but was deeply disappointed with the fact that almost nothing is new features wise. Object placement is accurate. There is no equipment option. You do get access to 3D models of planets and nebulae, so that's neat. If it's a 3D observatory thing you're looking for, Celestia has a larger selection.

The free trial is activated and canceled successfully by hundreds of users across all versions of SkySafari every day. You may have encountered an edge case scenario with your trial if you signed up for one both within the app and at our web-based sky simulator and data management platform livesky.com. We are happy to investigate further and fix.
