Google Play Reviews

  1. Johnny G-avatar

    Seems to be a bit glitchy with Galaxy S10. In the AR view mode, the screen constantly jitters, making the "live" viewing quite unpleasant and pointless. Once calibrated my comps and accelerometer, but it keeps doing it. Also, there seems to be a notification number constantly next to the search icon (little magnifying glass), which I can't get rid of, even though I have the notifications for the app turned off. I'm not sure if this is an 'in app' notification, but is annoying.

  2. Mark V-avatar

    Star Chart is the best interactive star field map I have ever used, and I have tried out of many. I have been using it for several years now and just installed it on my new S10+. Love it! Great job Star Chart, and thanks for this awesome app!

  3. Rockie Corbett-avatar

    It's a pretty decent app. My only 2 Criticisms though are enough for me to uninstall. 1.) You have to spend handfuls of Money; for what seems like each of the 6 items. I could afford maybe- one, but not 6. 2.) The Settings really aren't complicated enough. I'll put it simply; Other Star Map App's I have used are frankly better just because of the "Being Free" aspect, as well as looking better with more control.

  4. Ryan Van Huis-avatar

    I absolutely love this app! I've tried all the star chart apps, and this is my favorite by far! Very easy to use, with some really cool add-ons, for finding different things to look at through your telescope! Especially handy for finding where radiant points for meteor showers. I highly recommend! 5 stars!!!

  5. Steven Smith-avatar

    Point at objects see what they are. Im sorry for all the people who wanna complain about paying for extra features, there is a stupid amount of stuff to keep you occupied, and they literally just gave me all the in app perchases. Theres less free apps out there that wont target your scope.

  6. dbas111-avatar

    Good app. I have to wave the phone around to calibrate the compass when starting the app, but that's fine. Pretty accurate and notifies me of any interesting events.

  7. AP Pandey-avatar

    I always want to know about space elements like star, planate and solar system. Thank for this awesome app guys. It's awesome way to discover our space and know the name which planate or star is shining their name. Overall it's awesome apps. Thanks for developing this and go ahead and rock on.

  8. Anil K P-avatar

    I have been using this application for the past few days. My overall experience while using the application is impressive. A couple of suggestions from me: 1. It would've been good if you could've included the facility to move back and forth current GPS position/coordinates position in Sky View, once a user changes the view by moving within the screen. 2. It would've been good if you could've included the facility to navigate to any position, including the starting point in Explore Mode.

    It actually works!!!!! My phone has no built-in gyroscope so it was incompatible with other stargazing apps...but I am shocked to see this one actually working with my device!!! Thanks!!!

  10. Ledio Siukp-avatar

    Those who have created this app have made a serious mistake. The positions of the sky objects appear 1 solar month before the current time. For the moment, the Sun is in Capricornus, while here it appears in Sagittarius. Mars is in Saggitarius while here in the app it is in Scorpio, and thus for all the Planets. Edit this mistake.

    Back in 2014 was the time I got hooked on the stars and the dusts in the space! I really appreciated how you all adjusted the costellation's positions, as well as the nebulas, the stars, and the plantes!

  12. Symbiotech-avatar

    I guess no one there responds about issues. I've paid for add-ins but the app won't load on my new Pixel. I've sent 5 or 6 emails to them, and haven't gotten any responses in over 2 months aside from auto-generated "we'll get back to you" notes.

  13. Diana-avatar

    App doesn't analyze the sky , just show pictures. My friend's version (older) opens and analyzes immediately. New version is ...not working very well

    Love this. Love the vr version as well. Feels very comprehinsive. Been getting data about anything I can think of. My biggest aid so far in discovery and putting things into perspective.

  15. Randy Groom-avatar

    Great app!! Dead on at pointing out the planets and the best time for viewing. I missed a lot of viewing by hit or miss and not really knowing where to look for objects. Now I don't know what I would do not to have this app. I have used other apps before finding this one and Star Chart is in my opinion the best one to explore with. Now I would be lost and wasting a lot of time and viewing opportunities without Star Chart. So glad I tried the Star Chart app and highly recommend this app.

  16. Oregon Coaster-avatar

    Absolutely love it!!!! Great visuals and easy to navigate with a crazy amount of information. Amazing this is the free version. Might have to try the pro on this one

  17. Nathan Johnson-avatar

    Some glitchy moments but overall I love this app ... have installed it on multiple devices both Android & iPhone ... definitely recommend the full upgrade through Apple Store, kinda stinks to pay individually through Google on Android for Comets, Meteor Showers, etc ... but none of the other "star/celestial/lunar" apps I've tried come close to Star Chart ... solid 8/10 with room to improve some little things ... @Natej714 #SoCal_714

  18. Matt Brumage-avatar

    This app has data for objects, and doesn't have adds, instead, you can add elements for a fee. The graphics are great, including the tour of the solar system? The "Moments in Time" are a great element, if the Apollo 11 one is any indication. Great app!

    Wow this app is the best app ever like really I never thought that I can ever watch stars and planets with my own eye thankyou very much and I watch your video also its so inspiring and great work I recommend everyone to use it THANKS AGAIN FOR SUCH GREAT AND AMAZING THING

  20. James Brown-avatar

    Now I can Identify the Stars again. I had a medical thing that caused me to have memory loss. I know all my planets and stars before and have been very frustrated not being able to recall them. I have been amazed to find that most people couldn't help me because they never knew. Now I have an ever present reminder and teacher.

  21. Jacob Pearson-avatar

    Love the pictures and ability to look up the constellations. Pointing at the constellations themselves is nice too :)

  22. Ashfaqul Islam-avatar

    Great app.. I have been looking for this kind of app for long time.. Finally I got it.. really appreciate to the developer.. keep going and keep updating... thanks

  23. GanjaLabs-avatar

    Pretty sweet free version. I'm an amateur so not sure on accuracy, but it's got a good interface, runs well and quickly, and the free version is pretty great. Going to add some of the options as I start spending more time behind the telescope!

  24. Misting Wolf-avatar

    Took me a moment to realize that the constellation names were translated into their English equivalent. Didn't realize the "this app is in English" note also meant the names. Totally okay though! Just wish there was an option to view then in their Romanian as well (eg Gemini instead of Twins)

  25. Su-man Pandit-avatar

    (^_-)Yo man . Its a very nice aap where young astronomers can do very interesting things. This aap looks so real all the details are amazing sometimes it seems that iam really in space at that time. But my biggest problem is that it tooks money to show us meteor shower. Artificial satellites .etc. Otherwise its like scientific heaven to me .(^_-)

    It could be a lot better with very little effort. In night mode, not everything is red and that makes the mode useless. Celestial bodies are mostly cartoonish looking, false colored objects reinforcing urban myths about what they really look like. Lens flare is highly annoying and useless.

  27. Ted Hunt-avatar

    I'm using an earlier release. This recent release opens far too slowly and has at least one odd anti-feature: it will not display the proper names of constellations, only English translations, which are useless for outside reference.

  28. Isaac Session-avatar

    I prefer the older version where the sky moves with your device. This is disappointing

  29. Mike Wilhelm-avatar

    I especially like that I can see the stats (like distance and type) about a star just by touching it.

  30. jr78racer-avatar

    Hands down, the coolest app I've ever used. Neat just to look at the celestial bodies, and a great tool for teaching kids the constellations.

    Nice but I can't seem to search even for the most obvious stars, even though the manual indicate a catalogue of between 125k and 1 or 2 million objects. I must be doing something wrong. Really great graphics though but useless if I can't search.

  32. Lori Millian-avatar

    Truly an awesome app for the sky. Thanks for putting in all the effort in creating it. Well done.

  33. Russ M-avatar

    Love this app. Very easy to pinpoint what you are looking at and to find what you want to see in the sky.

    It's got a lot worse. It's now incredibly slow and faint. Where are the Latin constellation names? Why doesn't it work on my old phone?

  35. Sheila Roc-avatar

    Excellent App! You will discover another world above you. I like that we can zoom on each planets and see them very closely. The illustration of each zodiac sign is impressive and the best I have seen so far!

  36. Kaz Grambauer-avatar

    Great app the only thing id totally love to see would be a live view feature so u can use the camera to be certain that it is spot on. Sometimes trying to find the meteor shower locations can be a lil hit and miss but otherwise i love it

  37. Randy Madewell-avatar

    Totally cool app! My astronomy professor used this app during class and it has been absolutely amazing. I use it all the time and I'm not even an astronomy major. I've been using it now for more than a year and it has been spot on.

  38. Artem Vinnikov-avatar

    Nice sky view, with images, and AR is not bad. The compass is a complete mess though, but it could be due to my device. Explore mode displays objects relative positions which is kinda cool.

  39. Kevin Buxton-avatar

    The app often thinks the phone is looking in a different direction than it is. tonight, it is displaying everything exactly 180 degrees off. South is north, and vice versa.

  40. David King II-avatar

    This is nothing like the experience you have using the app on iPhone. It lacks the live view feature which allows you to move your device and the stars and planets displayed would change based on device orientation. Without this feature this app is darn near useless.

  41. Rx No-avatar

    This app is amazing for anyone who's into astronomy. When your out at night, it's a easy way to know the stars.

  42. A Google user-avatar

    Best app for persons who wish to see stars in night sky and want to explore them and learn about them I enjoyed using this app, i love this app. It really met my expectations

  43. DraVen Rader-avatar

    App does not follow your movements as it should across the sky. Showing what you are looking at as you move your phone. It's the main feature I wanted.

  44. David Sparks-avatar

    I tried to use your app again...but it wouldnt let me out...I had to re boot or off n on again then I left by uninstalling...it is a great app...spi(n)t is my carrier(I dont like it either...but my #1 got it 4 me...um...Galaxy S9+ if that helps the webmaster...I will be back to try again...

    Amazing!! Speechless.. Just that it takes some time to start navigation.. But it's brilliant!!❤️

  46. PerseP-avatar

    The size of the text is so small you can't read the names of the constellations properly. According to the instructions the size of the text can be changed in the android settings but it doesn't its always fixed at a too small size

  47. Andrew Stewart-avatar

    sends me app notifications for features that aren't even installed. Then can't get rid of the notification once I do go into the app, have to quit and restart

  48. Anshul Kumar-avatar

    Best ...app ...for fun and for the people interested in astronomy.... If it was full free then it has given more information to us.

    When will you fix the Milky Way's position? It's been 3-4 years and it's still in the wrong area of the sky. Milky Way's brightest part is near the constellation Sagittarius. It's nowhere near that in your app. Kindly fix it ASAP.

  50. Sam Speed-avatar

    Brilliant app, my go to guide to the sky. However, I would like to report a bug with the calendar to change the date in the app. When I try to scroll up (back) the days of the month, it doesn't let me go to the previous month and it gets stuck at the 1st of the month. Also, the previous month to tbe one that you're in has an extra day, such as 32 days in January. It only seems to affect some years, such as 1980 and 81 and January 1965.

    Great app however it seems to have stopped working as it only stays stuck on the load screen doesnt even go into the app. Re-installed but the problem persists.

  52. Greg Holz-avatar

    I just wanted to see what was in the sky. 15 updates layer i can't find that menu option to navigate in live view. Thanks for messing up the app and making it useless. Uninstalling...

  53. Ray Morse-avatar

    It points in the wrong direction and once the app starts, there's no way to end it with the home key. Uninstalling.

  54. Lloyd Jones-avatar

    The explore option bugs out with me. I'll click on a planet, it will zoom towards it on one or 2 occasions, then on the next, it will stutter and freeze. All the option remain available, but the visuals freeze. I have the Honor 10. Any plans to fix or is this one of those things? I quite like this app, would like to keep using it.

  55. Ramix Nudles-avatar

    While this app is GORGEOUS, it's also a frustration. My current frustration is notifications. You can't turn them OFF. According to the online instruction manual, it says that they are ON by default, and "to turn them off, go into settings/ apps / Star Chart". You don't "turn them off", you have to BLOCK THEM. A subtle difference? No. It is still requesting notifications. I found this unsatisfactory, but will have to live with it.

    My favorite astronomy app! you can customize how it looks, and it has a huge amount of detail and information about the objects you can see in the sky. The basic mode has enough detail to be interesting, without overwhelming you with a scattering of undifferentiated stars. You can get additional features if you want, and go into more depth. It shows you the locations of things you can see with telescopes, like galaxies, clusters, and planets beyond Saturn, and tells you facts about them.

  57. Liia Sargsian-avatar

    This the best up ever! I love it. it's really helpful and I love that it shows every star and their names, and also where planets are located and even the nebulas! Guys, you did the really good job. the most cool thing I ever saw, that I could hear the sounds of the sun and every planet in our solar system. but the thing is that in the video, people moving their phones and the sky in the phone is also moving. but I need to move the sky on my phone with fingers. Please fix it, It' uncomfortable.

  58. A Google user-avatar

    This app is stunning. I feel I can literally hold the universe in the palm of my hand when I'm exploring in Star Chart. Really inspiring. The moments in time are a nice touch too. The only criticism I have is that it's really difficult to set your location manually. Would be nice to be able to select a city and have the latitude & longitude populate automatically.

  59. Graham Brown-avatar

    The only interesting thing about this app was the fact that you could select an object, change the date, and it would track. That was instructive as a learning tool. The new version changed this to increment seconds while incrementing the date so that the whole screen becomes a spinning blurry mess. As someone who is actually serious about amateur astronomy, I can no longer recommend this app for anything. Get stellarium

    Wonderful application. i just checked today and found out that you also have this in android. Until today I was still using your Symbian application which also works perfectly. Good work. Thank you for this wonderful application. EDIT: I checked, and confirmed that the Symbian version and this one produces the same results. Very good indeed.

    I much preferred the older version which i had for years and loved. Now when i change a time setting to view where an object will be in the future ALL the time settings change. For example if i move the date forward by one day not only does the day change but so do the hours and minutes which makes it very confusing and i constantly have to change them back again. Very fristrating and disappointing especially as i was so happy with the older version. I will probably delete this app.

  62. Octavian Tavi-avatar

    I bought the messier ext and is ok, I also wished to see the Horsehead nebula not only the Orion nebula, can you add it? AR mode does not work on my Samsung Tab A 10.1 2019 because it does not have compass, it has only GPS and Accelerometer

  63. Isaiah Ramos-avatar

    So fun to use and easy to understand also it gives information I never thought to ask or look up

  64. Sorin Talasman-avatar

    The app is OK in general. I gave only 4 stars because the user manual link is not active. Why so? Another issue I want to point out is that in explore mode the surface of the planet to explore and the light on it do not change if one changes the orientation of the phone. I was expecting that, at least, for those that bought some updates such problems to not exist!

  65. Loki-avatar

    Wonderful tool to help introduce astronomy to my daughter. Makes finding cool stuff to point the telescope at easy too.

  66. Daniel Kelling-avatar

    As an amateur stargazer, this was the best app I could find to properly identify what I'm looking at through my 10x50 binoculars at night. Recommended :)

  68. Rica King-avatar

    So far I love rhis app. It is a brilliant way to start learning about what we can see in our night sky as well as what we can't see.

  69. Ahmed Alian-avatar

    Very nice application. I just hope they add more items to the exploration part, such as more stars or planets.

  70. A Google user-avatar

    The old version was good, the stars position are accurate as per astro photograph I captured. Just the milkyway's illustration slightly offset. That is fine. But now in the latest version, the star position no longer accurate. I guess the star position and the timeline is not match now. Please check and update it. Thanks.

  71. T Lynn-avatar

    The best! I love it so far, so much easier to use than the other star map app. So accurate, absolutely gorgeous!! Highly recommend!

  72. Thirdy Parpa-avatar

    Very laggy on my phone, can't seem to click on the icons. Works fine on my old phone, but now it's all crappy

  73. Google User-avatar

    Pretty excellent app. Main gripe is every time I run it it asks for confirmation of location. Very annoying. Also, please fix the ability to change year, month etc without it changing the time. Even more annoying. And can you make it easier to cancel seeing the details of a particular object?

  74. Mr Ben-avatar

    I'll give it 4 Stars for being well designed and clarity. I have the app on my iPhone and on my current and updated galaxy tab a 10.1 and there's one big difference...... No AR mode on my tablet. Which kills it for me. I can't find the heart to give it one or three stars. Most folks don't know there are three stars between 1 and 5. They have no concept of Middle ground.

    Used to be freaking amazing!!! Now it never shows the correct location in sky view. I have to tweak it myself. Not helpful that way. Previously, it was always right! Then they added all the extras (some are cool) and it hasn't found my correct location since.

    My go-to star spotting app. Being Chicago based means there arent a whole lot of fireballs to spot but it does make sorting them easier. has a lovely night mode (unlike GPG, grr) as well as a fairly useful AR mode, might be better on other phones, but it helps. Tons of stats on anything you click on. break out the scope and give it a spin!

    Not very intuitive but I hate to read manuals. Will have to read before this becomes my go to app. Visually stunning1

    I have been using it for a while. I just loved it until lately the app screen started to freeze frequently for a few seconds while moving around. It is quite irritating now to surf the sky (20-02-19). edit: I just uninstalled the app as another one is found to be better.

    app is fantastic when it works. Since trying to install it on the new pixel 4, app only shows the loading screen which freezes on launch.

    I really like this app, but I have some problems with it. The manual suggests that it supports voice commands, but there's now way of activating it. Also it keeps popping up with your current location which is very annoying if you have to change apps

  81. Mike KY-avatar

    I've had this app for some time now. However, after my most recent update, the language was wrong. I cleared out the cache, but that didn't help. I deleted files then uninstalled and reinstalled and that didn't fix the problem. I will miss this app as I enjoyed having it, but I've decided to use another star app.

    Excellent reference tool. Details on stellar and planetary objects are very useful. Top marks!

  83. Jon Steedley-avatar

    Very good, but needs improvement 1st, badly needs magnitude adjustment shows like a 1000 stars where I see 3 [I see 4.5-5 mag due to light pollution] Also, it's great to zoom in & out but star's names stay the same size so *really* need the names to change w/ zoom level It's really good but needs usability improvements

    I use the app to locate objects in my binoculars and my telescope. Both of these are on alt/az mounts and having real time coordinates works great. The only thing missing is a converter to convert hour angle/declination for any object into live alt/az. If I can't have it all though, this works great.

    The $12.99 extended star catalog will not download. They wont return emails. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app numerous times. They have stolen my money.

    Best star map. I use it to trace the milky way for photo. Really handy and easy to use especially AR mode.

  87. Jeff Pangburn-avatar

    Very good app even if you don't pay. If you pay, I bet it's pretty amazing. The only reason that I gave it a four star, is because the GPS doesn't always line up the Stars according to where I'm actually at. Other than that it's really damn good.

    I'd recommend this app to anyone. Works great in places with no phone or Internet service. I've only used the free version so far, and im impressed with the amount of features in the app for free. If you're like me, and you find yourself wondering "what star is that?" all the time, download this app.

  89. Doug Todd-avatar

    The app worked maybe twice. Now, if it actually starts up, it puts a field of stars on the screen (not what is in the night sky, but a random field of stars) and then nothing else happens. So far, I will say Star Chart sucks. I'll delete it and try another app.

  90. Hannan Kruger-avatar

    I used to have this app when I was a kid, I had infinite fun looking at the sky. Now that I've moved away from the city, I'm redownloading it since I have a chance to at the sky again...

    App is suited for amateurs! Perfectly looking AR and Easy interface. Unfortunately low amount of data (explanations) about objects. High energy consumption. Searching by name should be "Global", not just inside the chosen set of objects.

  92. Peter Hannah-avatar

    The gps is soooo inaccurate. I'm facing due south in the Southern Hemisphere and the map using gps is saying NE.

  93. Harish Reddy-avatar

    this is really helpful. But Graphics can be updated to latest. Thank you team for providing a great information at our fingertips.

    App wacked out - picture spinning in circles or flashing off and on

    It's AWESOME! But one thing I notice is when I View the planet up close, it doesn't show me the moons around the planets that has moons, before the upgrade, I was able to see the moon in the older chart, I'm disappointed in that, for I enjoy looking at all that.

  97. Micah Newman-avatar

    Doesn't work any more on my Samsung Android. Just goes to a black screen.

    Hard to rate this app just yet. Install finished LITERALLY thirty seconds ago and even before I get a chance to open it for the first time, I'm getting a ratings request. So, Star Chart folks, HERE'S my rating . . . and review at no extra charge . . . that you really seem to want. One star, which is a start; I don't know enough yet to give anything higher. Nobody was killed during the installation, so there's that. And with one star there's nowhere to go but up, right?

  99. Nick Williams-avatar

    Awesome app, but sadly doesn't work on Pixel 4 with Android 10. Hangs at splash screen.

    Very cool exploring game, helps me find my favorite planets.
