It's a novel idea using AR to overlay star maps over the camera view but this version fails in two ways. First, is accuracy. The objects are off from the viewed image in the camera. Second, ads directly on the sky maps. Was observing a lunar eclipse and focused on the moon and got an audible add instead of info in the event Only tracks ISS and Hubble. Good concept but needs improvement.
Got excited when I saw what this app claimed it could do. Then I opened it outside on a clear night. It is so off it thinks the moon is on below the horizon when it's directly above me. Calibration doesn't matter. It's just broken. Get Sky Map instead. It actually works.
I honest to God hope this is accurate, because this makes me so friggen happy. My hubby can't move his neck and every time we go out I stare at the stars and I'm unable to share the experience with him, but with this (hopefully accurate) app I'll be able to share it with him.
Nice app. Just reverted from the SkyView Premium version which does not account for local time - it treated local time as GMT time, apparently - showing the sun high above the horizon at 4am local time (GMT+8). This free version is fine.
Extremely nice app... For those in which it doesn't work try calibrating your device and testing the gyroscope before complaining.. It is really nice app and should be referred in play store.
Maybe because I'm into starts and such universal features interests me, i just loved this app and would recommend it to others as well... it's so good to watch all the planets and sun and moon everyday before going to bed..
Working with Audible, we’ve re-created the city on the moon from the new audiobook Artemis. Written by the author of The Martian, this high-stakes lunar adventure is performed by celebrated actress Rosario Dawson – most recently seen in the Marvel and Netflix series The Defenders, Luke Cage, and Daredevil. When you locate the moon in SkyView, you’ll see Dawson as Jazz Bashara, the heroine of Artemis and your “friendly” Artemis tour guide. Tap on her avatar to explore the moon-city of Artemis.
