    ‘Sky Guide’ is an award-winning astronomy app and also very popular among iPhone and iPad users. As it turns out, the app is free right now within the Apple Store app, down from its usual price of $1.99. We don't know for how long this promotion will last, so if you're passionate about astronomy, you need to get it as soon as possible.

    While the app is free, it isn't available on iTunes but through the official Apple Store app. Thus, in order to download it, you will first need to get the Apple Store app on your iPhone or iPad. After that, you need to open the app and select the Stores section near the bottom of the home page. Scroll down a little bit to the first section, and then swipe right twice.

    That's where you’ll see the offer to download the regularly $1.99 title for free. If you open the Apple Store app on your iPad, just select the Stores tab, and then tap the section named “Learn your night sky.” What's really cool is that the app also comes with Apple Watch support, and you will be able to use it to see a calendar of upcoming astronomical events.

    After you will have downloaded the app, you just need to hold your iPhone or iPad to the sky to automatically find stars, constellations, planets, satellites and more. It comes with many other interesting features that you will discover after getting it for free.

      Maybe it's not free in all countries? Are you using the Apple Store app and following the directions? I checked in the Apple Store app on my iPhone and found it. Here's a screenshot.

      I think so. The U.S. app of the week usually changes late on Thursday.

      But it's in the US Apple Store app:

      It's NOT in the App Store app, but in the Apple Store app.

      There's no app of the week in the Apple Store app. As Johanna said, look in the Apple Store app in the stores section. You'll find it on the bottom of the second page.

      Sweet Thanks! I've been using Star Walk since I bought it 5 years ago (or so) and I've liked it, but I'll have to wait till tonight to see what kind of differences there are.
