Most complete star charting app

I'm a huge space fanatic so I've tried just about every similar app & I'm very impressed with this one. For one low price you're able 2 see all this info whereas most other apps charge individually for things (ex. Planets, galaxies, nebula, comets) I esp like how you can see what you'd view from the opposite hemisphere. You can scroll around rather than pointing your phone 2 the sky if u want.

Who needs a telescope? The sky's unlimited for STAR CHART, the pocket-size answer for the young and old astronomers of the world. This is of the best-selling smartphone astronomy apps for good reasons. There's so much to explore here, including the names and beautiful illustrations of constellations laid over the actual images of stars, plants, and other "exotic deep sky objects." This app creates a beautiful image of the sky and helps even young children get a better idea of what's going on up there. Worth every penny.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
