What Is Co-Star?

Co-Star is a personalized astrology app that combines birth chart information, data from NASA, and artificial intelligence to provide customized astrological information and advice. It’s well-known for the push notifications sent to users, which can be pointed and even snarky.

Co-Star comes with built-in social media components including an option to sync one’s phone contacts and Facebook friends to then check compatibility with friends and get a glimpse into their astrological information.
