Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

If there's any interest in star gazing at your house, this jam-packed app is worth every last penny to help find and identify constellations and individual stars. Sky Guide can help kids learn to identify stars on their own and develop a deeper understanding for space-related phenomena. It's even fun to browse around and examine the constellations or find the closest satellite and imagine (or look for) it zooming overhead. The calendar allows kids to look at a historical event or plan ahead for the next meteor shower. The integration of augmented reality makes perfect sense and enhances the overall experience. Sky Guide is an excellent choice for both adults and kids, but parents should remember that it's geared toward older kids/adults and little ones will likely need help/guidance.

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.
