I don’t know if this is a glitch but…
So I went to the telescope thingy, and all the planets were way too close together. Is this a glitch? Please fix it. Otherwise, fun app!
Cute but limited
The app keeps you on a linear path where you have to learn about each space object before it is unlocked in the observatory. I am a science teacher and hoped this would be a good addition to my first grade space curriculum, but it doesn’t allow for free exploration until the kid has spent a lot of time listening to the mandatory content. I downloaded a different app that was aimed at adult stargazers – its controls aren’t as kid-friendly but it lets the user actually explore.
Updated-app great & developers very helpful
I had a ton of problems with this app when it first loaded but those issues have since been resolved. Vito Technology was extremely helpful and timely with a solution.
My kids love this app. It’s easy to navigate, fun to watch and interact with and has a ton of great information.

Thank you very much for your review!
I’m a STEM teacher and I’m definitely going to convince my district to purchase this for our iPads at school. It has great activities to let students explore at a level they can understand. A lot of fun!
Please add more activities soon! More constellation information would be great!

Thank you very much for being our user and taking the time to write this wonderful review!
This is super cool I had been learning so much about space it was so fun even learning about the solar system. It was very cool and fun. I would like more things in there because I never want it to end!!
Stuck on Hubble
My daughter and I are stuck on the Hubble Telescope on the exploration map. We have no options to continue and are unable to journey to the next locked item.
Also, when we select settings, we are asked to solve a math problem, but are unable to continue by tapping “Restore”.
I was hoping the bad reviews from years ago were old news but to my dismay I cannot get sound on this app no matter what i do. Reboot, delete, reinstall, reboot. Blah. What a bummer. My son is crying because he was excited and is only 2 and doesn’t understand hardware malfunctions. Such is life.
Knocked it out For Kids
Good learning, nice linear path. Good amount of info for an evening of learning. Easy to function. Quizzes are a perfect touch. Kid loves it.
