You can now have a virtual star chart in your pocket. Look through the eyes of your iPhone or iPad* to see a high-tech window into the whole visible universe.
All you have to do is point your AR enabled device* at the sky and Star Chart will tell you exactly what you are looking at.
Using state of the art GPS technology, an accurate 3D simulation of the visible universe, and a great deal of technical wizardry, Star Chart calculates – in real time - the current location of every star, planet and moon visible from Earth and shows you precisely where they are; even in broad daylight!
Want to know what that bright star is called? Point your device* at it – you might just find out it’s a planet!
Want to know what the night sky looks like to people on the other side of the earth? Well just point your device down!
Want to know where your star sign is in the sky? Star Chart will tell you all this and more.
Star Charts features include:
- Just point and view. When you hold your device up to the sky, Star Chart will automatically start tracking your movements to match the sky *.
- Alternatively, look around the sky using finger gestures – perfect for armchair astronomers!
- In a single app of less than 30MB, Star Chart dynamically scales its visuals and capabilities across all iOS devices to meet the high end capabilities of a retina display iPad while also running smoothly on the earliest iPhones and iPods.
- Accurately depicts all the visible stars of the northern and southern hemispheres - a total of approximately 120,000 stars!
- Fly to and explore all the planets of the solar system, their moons and the sun all rendered in beautiful 3D with state of the art visual effects.
- Using the powerful Time Shift feature, simply tap the time button and smoothly shift up to 10,000 years forward or backward in time.
- Displays all 88 constellations, with constellation imagery based on the beautiful artwork by 17th century astronomer Johannes Hevelius.
- Includes the complete Messier catalogue of 110 exotic deep sky objects.
- Tap on anything in the sky and get the facts on what you are looking at, including distance and brightness.
- Very powerful zoom function, lets you view the sky in extra detail, using intuitive finger gestures.
- Fully configurable. Star Chart displays only the sky objects that you are interested in.
- Allows you to view the sky underneath the horizon. So now you can see where the sun is, even at night!
- Manually set your location to find out what the sky looks like from anywhere in the world.
- Supports dynamic device orientation viewing. Allows you to view the night sky whilst holding your iPhone/iPad* at any angle.
So point your iPhone/iPad* at the sky and see what's out there!
* Augmented Reality mode is available on devices that include a built-in compass. Manual scrolling is supported on all other devices.
And thanks for all your feedback so far!

saddens me to give this app 3 stars. If this is a bug I hope it gets fixed A
(5★) Easy to use
Awesome for quick star viewing. Shows constellations and their path relative to earth. That alone is educational. I'm sure it does
a lot more too.
Incredible detail and great discovery app! Thumbs up!
(5★) A great app
Simple to use. Informative. Makes stargazing fun and educational.
Seems like a great app for free. I can hardly wait to play with it at night. Many options and very versatile to your personal

Me and my 4yr old love this App!
(4★) Good app
Too many upgrade notifications, but great for astronomy novices. Most upgrades should be included but still useful.
I want this app strapped to my head with my eyeballs pried open during all waking hours. The planetary animations are a nice
detail, and it makes it so easy to learn constellations, as well as figure
(5★) Great way to "see" the stars.
This is a great app to accompany your telescope. My 8 year old and I have recently got in to the solar system. She loves using the
app to identify what we are looking at while I get it in sight.
This is a great app due to the fact you can look at what is out in space from your Mobile device.
Overall a fine app. I would be willing to suffer through adds to unlock the extra features, as opposed to paying for them.However,
it is an excellent star chart, and quite accurate.
(5★) My kids and I enjoy it
It's also fun for my husband and I to find a star and see what the name of it is. We use the calendar and other options as well.
(5★) Such an incredible app!
This app is really amazing. Too often we have looked at the night sky while around the fire pit and attempted to determine
constellations but we honestly weren't sure. This app makes the night sky a p
When I first discovered this app I got so excited, every minute go outside and look and see what was right out there in the sky.
But I've been using it a few months and I hadn't read it and I don't kn
This app is one of the easiest star or cosmos apps around! Updates are always current and the information they provide is 100%
Accurate! I recommend it to every stargazer
(5★) What a great resource!
How cool is it to hold a computer in one hand, displaying all known constellations on its screen? This app is spectacular and
mind-blowing. I love the graphics and interactive displays.
Really easy to follow and amazing display of charts!
This app is easy to use, accurate, and the basic app is great with extras available if you want them. I can view stars and planets
any time of the day or night even if the weather is bad.
(4★) Great App, but the maps need updating
I love this app and I use it all the time, but I would suggest updating your maps of objects like Ceres considering the Dawn
orbit, Triton (even if it's just partially), and Pluto (given the upcoming
It was really helpful for my daughters homework I like it and I recommended!
If you wanna wow your friends this is the App. It's so cool.
(5★) Love this app!
Best star finder app I've ever used. The AR mode makes it super easy to point at the sky and know what you're looking at.
Definitely recommend it.
(5★) Gr8 App
Love the functionality and accuracy of this app. I love star gazing with only Binoculars and this helps me find what I am looking
Laying on the trampoline enjoying the stars with my girl, makes it ideal!
I like so much this app because it helped me to understand some things about the planets. Th best app of the universe.
It is rare for find inspiration to write a review for an app; but this one really has impressed me. I grew up in Colorado under a
dark night sky with stars by the millions but, having moved to Los An

(4★) Good but expensive
The app is fantastic! Really good graphics, attention to detail and information provided. However if you want to see anything
other than the planets then it becomes very pricey.
If Awesomerer were a word then this app. would be Awesomerer. But it's not, just like Pluto is not a planet.
Looks amazing though. The app updates in real time as you turn the orientation of the phone, really cool.
(5★) Great !
It's the most amazing app ever! I totally adore it ;)
I don't write reviews for apps at all. I am so impressed by the accuracy and real-time results on this app!
Love the detailed view, the depth perception makes it easier to find the right star but everything on screen seems a little
shifted to the left in comparison with real sky
(4★) Fun so far
Love start gazing to start with. This one is the best so far.
It's like, well yes I'll come in to bed "soon" but right now, I'm gonna go outside and blow your MIND by bringing back a
screenshot of Uranus. And trust me, you're gonna get a big old Moon, too. And
(5★) Very Cool App
If you can see stars, you have to check this out. Shows constellations, trajectory of moon and sun.all around nerd cool
Hard to believe an app this cool is free! Download now!
(5★) This is amazing!
This is the best app available for novice star watching to expert identification!
Absolutely the best of its kind.
Great app for amateur astronomers. Beats reading star charts at dark. Have fun viewing the Messier catalog either with a scope,
binoculars or the naked eye. Very, very nice. Also, satellite viewing is
It's a slight bit inaccurate but it's due to the sensor in my phone. All of my gyro sensitive apps are off by the same margin.
Otherwise, 5 stars. Bravo for a very fun to use app. I've used others
(5★) Awesome app
This app is great for introducing the stars to a person be they 6 or 60. This app is not a waste of time to download. Highly

Love the app. I use it to help me guide my reflector telescope.
(5★) Needs bug fix
The app is great, but i recently purchased "enhanced constellations" and at first it was ok but now the pictures don't load and
constellations's images are just white! Please fix this problem. It's re
One of the most awesome apps I have ever downloaded. Looking forward to more content .
(4★) Not Bad
The app has tons of info, just have to watch your calibration.
(5★) Totally Awesome!
Everything you could ever ask for.
This app is truly amazing.I can't stop telling my friends and family about how great this app is.
(4★) A solid app for stargazers
In general it's a great app for people who love to stargaze or are astronomy students. The only reason it does 't get a 5 is the
number of adds for other products that pop up when you just want to loo
What a wonderful app. The free version is great. Most assuredly will try one of the upgrades. I love the descriptive information
and the notifications of astronomical events that can be viewed in my a
The best App since Urban dictionary!
Good times in the Sky, fun App.!
(3★) Star gazing app
Didn't think much of it at first. I like that it sends notes of historical importance . It sends notifications of whats going on
in the night sky. Where to look and what time is best to see the event
(5★) Love it
It is great to use it with our camping friends.
This is a fun and awesome app. I love the pictures it includes to show the images that the Stars represent. This is great for kids
I am so in love with this app. It is a must have for star gazers of any skill level. I actually hadn't read the features before I
downloaded it. I selected this app solely on a friend's recommendation
This isn't revolutionary, but it is a good functional app that provides good freedom to look around whenever and often offers
reminders of significant astronomical occurrences. Useful and fun to use.
(5★) Great App if you have u need
This app is simple to use. The background image representations of the constellations really helps amateur astronomer like me and
it's not crowded. 5
Now I know for sure that I want to become an astronomer when I'm older, because of this app!
Nice app(as mentioned above) however it could do without the "hey look at this.psych! It'll cost ya'!" approach to selling the
add-ons. Don't get me wrong.I still chose to keep this app over others of
The basic app is awesome. Love the zoom in features, the ability to recognize or track stuff in the sky. However do not purchase
the extras. You will be charge and then ignored. If this ever changes I

(5★) Successful App :must read:
Star Chart is a very successful app and it is a great way to show people and inform them about space.
So handy while camping in Thailand! Love this app.
(4★) Great for amateurs
I've used this all over the Western Hemisphere. At home in a large city to "see" stars that I can't see. And in South America to
identify stars I've never seen.
Very helpful in navigating the night sky! Great for learning historical facts, too!
Very educational. I love this when camping with my kid, it makes me sound smart.
Absolute fun. Entertaining, fascinating, and educational.
App is good it's self, it correctly points north,east, west, and south only 60 % of the time. The other 40% of the time, the
compass is incorrect. I keep running into this problem very often, I know m
I never write reviews, but this app earned it! The fact that it's free without adds is enough to warrant a 5 star rating! Works
beautifully, looks amazing, and is incredibly comprehensive! Star Chart
I really like it because I can show my son how the constellations look like.
Gives you a good idea of where things are but needs to be able to be aligned to it points right where the stars it shows actually
I have tried lots of apps. This is one of the best.
I couldnt believe all the reviews when everyone was saying "I never write reviews but I just had to with this one" until I
downloaded it myself and found out why. Its incredible! I love it!
Thank you for the stars at my fingertips! ;)
Deleted all my other astronomy apps.
I purchased the full upgrade to include satellites and comets, etc. they never downloaded and I am constantly prompted to restore
purchases when using the app but app will shut down and the upgrade is
Love this app! Helps me plan my astrophotography sessions
Downloaded this app on cloudy day to help identify the few stars classroom could see. Hard to complain when software integrates
gyroscope functions, includes a night mode, and more for free.
(5★) Cool app!
This app is really cool. I love how you can point the phone in any direction to view a variety of space matter. Definitely worth
(2★) Not completely accurate
Paid extra to be able to track Comet Lovejoy, but the location is completely inaccurate. There is no tracking information on
comets to show the path either. Going back to Skyview and will use star cha
Black still there with latest update. Right after start up it tried to calibrate the compass and then the black screen on ar mode.
Hope that helps with debug. Like the app a lot when it is working.
I love it so much, really useful.
Wish location service were more finely tuned. Other than that, a really fun app to play with.
No pun intended. I love to be able to pull out my phone tap star chart and locate comets ( with upgrade)of course. If you like
star, planet and constellation matters this easy to use app is truly a ge

about our vast universe.

The product category is a bit crowded. This one is beautiful and usable.
(5★) Great app
Love the ease of the app along with the interesting history notifications.
keeps you well up to date with celestial happenings. gorgeous display also.
This is a decent app, but the calibration is way off with Polaris showing due southwest on its worst days. If this was fixed I
would be willing to rate it at 5 stars, but until then it makes the app
Great reference. Enjoyable app to use.
(5★) Beautiful and breathtaking
As a school teacher and star enthusiast this app is amazing! My students were amazed to look at a bright sky or through a solid
wall and see the stars behind it! So was I! I highly recommend this down

So much fun and very educational! :D
Best education stuff. Star Trek uses this.
(4★) STaR CHaRT
Good app, solid performance and relevant upgrades.
I loved this app when I got it, it used to work fine. Now, when I go to settings, the whole thing locks up and I have to restart
it. I think it might have something to do with the ios8 release.
Very thorough and well developed to enhance understanding of this complex topic
(3★) Liked before iPad ISO 8
Really fun app until I got ISO 8. Now I open, I get one touch of screen n it freezes up. Sigh. Hope they are addressing an
update. I was really liking it!
There is a bug that avoids to open the settings when the app is portrait. This happens after the last update of the OS
This app has more data and choices then any other paid app I have ever used. It tells me everything I need to know and I get the
option to adjust nearly everything.
