SkyView® Free Review

All the authors that work on this project are required to follow our guidelines. To make the most out of the app testing process, our authors launch it on various smartphones and tablets with not only the latest OS', but also the previous ones.

You don’t have to be an astronomer to learn about the sky anymore. SkyView could become one of your favorite apps if you’re a stargazer. In case you don’t know much about the stars and constellations, it will provide you more information. It’s a great option for those with an entry level and children.

You can buy such expensive stuff like scientific books and telescopes to observe the sky, spend a lot of time on finding the location of constellations, satellites, and stars. Or just donate some space on your phone for the sake of astronomy, and you won’t be disappointed.

Functionality 9/10

First, SkyView is an easy-to-use app. You have to point your smartphone at the sky, and it will recognize galaxies, stars, constellations, planets, satellites, International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope locating above your head. It also preserves your night vision with red and green night mode filters.

The developers integrated an Augmented Reality feature in the app. Use your camera to catch sight of objects in the sky at any time of the day. Follow the sky track to see the object’s precise location at a requested date.

With SkyView you can share fantastic images with friends and relatives via social networks. You won't need WiFi to use some of the features, so you can use the app even during a camping trip or flight.

In SkyView even time travel is possible. You may move to the future or the past and observe the objects on different dates and times. The app allows using Space Navigator™ binoculars, spotting scope, and telescopes. It is an exciting way to find out more about the wonders of our universe, tell about astronomy to your children, students or friends.

Design 10/10

The app’s design is amazingly simple, meaning that everyone – even technophobes – can use it. The interface is operated easily even if you are not tech-savvy. You just have to point and tap, occasionally navigate the understandable menus and take snapshots of the sky if you would like to. As for a free app, it does a lot more than you’d imagine.

Usability 8/10

After installing the app, you will have to manually set your location or use GPS locator, which makes everything even easier. Once you’ve done that, you can start gazing at the sky no matter if it is day or night.

The most thrilling way to use SkyView is to turn on the Augmented Reality mode.The app overlays the visual information from your camera with its GPS-centred database of the celestial objects. When you move your smartphone’s camera and point it towards various parts of the sky, the location of each object in the sky pops up on the screen. As for a free app, it does a lot more than you’d imagine.

Cross-platform use 7/10

You’ll need Android 4.0.3 or later.

In-app purchases

The app is free of charge and contains no in-app purchases.


If you are outside at night and wondering what stars and constellations you are looking at, just open the app, scan across the sky, and the app will tell you the names and other information about them.

SkyView is an enjoyable and intuitive stargazing mobile app that finds and identifies celestial objects in the sky using your camera. Spot different constellations as they fade in and out, find planets in our solar system, locate faraway galaxies, and be a spectator of satellite fly-bys. It’s free, so download it and enjoy the sky a little more.



SkyView is a fun and excellent app to download. The ability to look at the screen of your device and immediately receive information on stars, planets and other objects in the sky is amazing, isn’t it?

Pros : User-friendly;
Fun for kids and adults;
Helps you explore the space;

    I had the free app but it now tells me I can no longer use it. Why? Do I only get a short time and then its no good any longer?

      @Bob boyd I agree! It's very confusing and wouldn't work when I really wanted it to do so.

    I have a Samsung S10 and I see on youtube and in the discussion that you can take pictures. I have spent considerable time trying to figure out how to take a picture. I have gone through the menus over and over again. I went through the permissions and the camera is set. I do not see the camera icon. I tap on the screen and no camera shows up. Is it possible that this app does not support the camera on the Samsung S10?
