Best app on the market, no doubts about it. If you are still thinking to buy or not, buy it and enjoy it. This app is everything you need for night sky photography and more.

This app has everything for the landscape photographer. So detailed and comprehensive you won't need to use anything else. I could not recommend this enough.

Been waiting for 1 year, finally come for android user 🙌 Awesome app!!
The first app I have ever paid for, and worth every penny. Make sure your device has a magnetometer (compass) as the AR mode needs it and my Moto G4 doesn't have one. You can still plan ahead which is probably 90% of the functionality, but the AR is amazing and genuinely helpful. Luckily my tablet and old phone do have magnetometers. 😀 I would also suggest that using the app to plan ahead on a small screen will present challenges and they have made an options to help with that, but still, it's much easier to plan on a tablet. The capabilities of this app are extraordinary and the online manual and videos are excellent. If more apps were produced and presented this way, more developers would get my money!

Wow! Ok, so at first I was hesitant due to the price, but let me tell you! So I went to Yosemite looking to find the milky way, and I used this app to do it! I tracked the moon, and from there, I used the live view to see when the milky way would pass over me! It worked like a champ, and I didn't even have any cell reception! I would definitely recommend this app, and look forward to using it in the future!
Ron 5
Great app. One thing I'd like to see is an easy way to share plans between devices. Backup/restore is a bit clunky. Update: June 7 Thanks for the prompt reply about using the share feature.

Essential tool for landscape and astrophotgraphy. The perfect app for planning photography trips. Know the time and location of the sun, moon, GC etc. before a leaving is a time saver 😚👌 Even make the best photo composition at home by planning the year ahead. I've been using photopills on all my previous Apple devices. So I'm very pleased to see it's now available for android as well. Best app I've ever bought... So good I bought it twice 😁👍📷

Just incredible. Every photographer must have it. It is worth every penny. If you are not sure whether it is worth paying for or not, I'm telling you. Do not hesitate and you will never fail planing any shot!
