Review: I have to admit I went into experiencing Homestar VR with trepidation on whether it was worth its high price point. but I need not have worried. This is a beautiful experience that is far better than any planetarium I’ve visited. With a world map to see the night sky anywhere and indeed anywhen and them 4 main planetarium shows to watch and enjoy, then, if all that wasn’t enough you get some beautiful environments to sit back and enjoy the night sky in. While these relaxing places are nice it is the educational element that truly makes this app worth buying. If you enjoy going to a planetarium in the real world you will find this app great value for money, but if you find them a little boring or have never visited one it might be best to leave this app alone until you do.
