As reviewed in Sky & Telescope magazine, SkySafari is "revolutionary" and a "game-changer" that can completely replace your desktop astronomy software. The Mac Observer writes: "this app earns a rare 5/5 rating." Gizmodo says: "Of all the stargazing and astronomy apps available for iOS, SkySafari is the best."
Now, SkySafari 5 makes the best mobile astronomy app even better. We've tweaked its interface for iOS 9 with Apple Watch support. The sky has a more natural look with an enhanced-visibility Moon. You can now select translucent horizon panoramas that let you see stars beneath your feet as well as over your head. We've remade the app's sound design - choose ambient background music, nature tracks, add your own sounds, or none at all.
Other Version 5 improvements include: ISS & Satellite Notifications, Object List Thumbnails, Updated Object Descriptions, Social Media Share Button, Reworked Time Flow Controls, Tonight at a Glance, Improved Night Vision Mode, New 3D Galaxy View, Digital Sky Survey Viewer, Abell and Hickson Galaxy Clusters, Globular Clusters in M 31, and much more!
