This sim is amazing, gives the average person a chance to be an astronaut, great Apollo and shuttle missions, much better with new update, sound has improved over all, best space sim on the market, visuals are stunning for a mobile simulator, coming to steam as well is great, keeps getting better with each update.
Bugs and glitches that need to be resolved, can't get any response from the developer, Apollo cockpits are not realistic, LEM needs the overhead port window for docking, CSM needs the docking reticle for docking with the LEM, thruster controls don't work properly, no way to get rid of the log screen after you request to see it, only a handful of the tutorials work correctly.
What does Space Simulator do? Space Simulator is an ultra realistic 3D space flight simulation game running real physics in a full-scale Solar System with unrivaled rendering and graphics.

The most realistic space aviation sim on the App Store!
I’ve had Space Simulator for well over 4 years now and I LOVE IT! It’s the closest thing there is on iOS to being an astronaut (minus the astrophysics and aviation knowedge!). It’s realism is phenomenal, especially the fully-functioning AGC.
The reason I gave it four stars is because an update needs to be released. For starters, there is no iPhone X and up support, meaning that you just have empty spots of black on the sides of the screen. Next is a big fix for the AGC. Entering certain commands will cause the app to crash (ie VERB 35 Enter is the command to test the DSKY lamps. Entering it on here causes the app to, well, crash). Lastly, while not an issue (for me, at least), there needs to be a more detailed menu as I’ve seen one star reviews of people saying the app does nothing but show you an orbiting Sputnik. Side-note: if you’re one of those people, just tap the little button in the top right corner to access the menu :)
All in all, it’s one of the most advanced sims available for iOS. If you’re interested in space (or you’re even studying/pursuing a career in the field), buy this app. You won’t regret it!
Plz keep improving
This sim is amazing, however, there are a lot of bugs that came with the new version update. I can't get any response from the developer, even on their website. All the cockpits are Apollo, plz fix this, the space shuttle interior should be more realistic and the actual authentic interiors. The LEM needs the overhead port window for docking, also it needs a docking target outside for docking with the CSM. The CSM needs the docking reticle for docking with the LEM. The thruster controls don't work properly since the update and makes docking very frustrating. The AGC codes are scarce and buggy. This sim is worth the effort, I've been playing it for years but the updates are slow. I wouldn't give 5 stars if I couldn't play the new missions without doing so, that's kinda shady to make it like that guys. Don't get me wrong here, I love this sim, that's why I'm being honest, plz help us out here!
Space flight Simulator does to Space what Ms did to flying
Gives the average person a chance to be an astronaut.
Challenging, gives you a look at and some of the experience, knowledge and skills the original astronauts had to acquire to fly into space. This is a game that takes tenacity to be willing to learn orbital mechanics as well as learn the controls in the cockpits of the spacecraft.
Great Apollo and shuttle missions. What is really unique about this simulator is the X15 and Gemini missions. Would like to see more of those missions along with a more refined and a more functioning cockpit in both. To really round it off all you would need is to add the Mercury with both the red stone and atlas missions.
Keep improving and refining you have a real winner!
Has potential. Dev needs to fix the bugs!
I was excited to see this. I’ve been using Space Flight Simulator for a while and was happy to something more realistic. After spending $5 on the app, I’m a little disappointed with what I received. Lots of bugs and glitches that need to be resolved. Especially charging for the app. Only a handful of the tutorials work correctly. None of the missions are very clear and it’s hard to understand the functions of each vehicle. Although I appreciate realism, can you maybe dumb this down for folks who don’t have an engineering degree? Maybe provide a list of the programs, nouns, and verbs for Apollo and Gemini missions. Clarify processes and procedures. Heck, make an easy, medium, difficult feature. Something to make me feel like I spent my money on something tangible.
Update cool but still issues
Much better with new update!
This is a truly amazing undertaking. I do have to admit it, however the game seems to remain plagued by small issues. For example, after the new update, there is no way to get rid of the log screen after you request to see it. Please fix this. Sound has improved over all.
Still not fixed.
Game crashes on implementation of Apollo 11 launch tutorial. Also, the engine sounds like you're in a wind tunnel, the new version is way better, but still has some kinks.
I wrote a few weeks ago (and I see other commenters saying something similar) that there needs to be an improvement on game instructions (at a minimum). Such has not happened. How long does it take to get together more comprehensive and easily understandable instructions?! Get it together guys!!
Still some issues with sounds and controls. Not all controls work properly and the sound on liftoff doesn't sound right.
