  • New time feature

    By gtpilot06
    What a piece of garbage! New version has a time feature that is too sensitive to adjust. Tap the slider lightly to go back in time and you cannot stop it! Stars and orientation start spinning around and before you know it your resetting the setting back to the default just to get your orientation back. Here’s an idea, let us type in a time and date we want to go back to. Keep working on it!
  • Star Walk 2

    By hwkospd
    This is the best space app I’ve ever seen in my life it shows everything. And get lost in space never find my way back to Earth. It’s amazing outstanding.
  • Good, but too much

    By Blizzard2398
    Bought this app a couple years ago and purchased all the add-ons available at the time(3 for at least $.99-$2.99 each). If we buy the app, I feel we should see everything rather than draining up to $20 into a $4 app..
  • Future Sunset/Sunrise doesn’t appear correct

    By FourAgreements
    Am I doing something incorrectly or is this app not calibrated right? I’m selecting a location and a future date and it’s showing me the sun will set 2 hours after it’s supposed to and the sunrise the next morning is also much later than what google tells me the sun should rise.

  • Love it!

    By itsmechloec
    Upper interesting!!!
  • Can't view specific dates

    By spamspamspamm
    The date selection button sometimes just randomly disappears and is replaced with a camera button. Stick with star walk 1.
  • Brilliant app

    By Csmcdonald
    Must have for anyone wanting to know what’s in the sky and where to look.
  • Boring delivery of great resources

    By HanieO
    “Sky overhead” shows a pictorial GRAPH of what is presently above. Boxes with GIFs of planets and their azimuth, etc. BORING PRESENTATION. “Hundreds of satellites” means 160 NOAA satellites plus 180 Iridium satellites displayed one at a time.
  • Hello Ads

    By Diappointed Moon Gazer
    Bought the original version of this app years ago. Then bought this version. It’s a great app, but...I hadn’t used it in awhile and opened it up this morning to see what celestial body was next to the moon. By the time I had figured it out, Venus, I had been shown 5 or 6 full screen ads, including a YouTube style video ad that I was graciously allowed to skip after 10 seconds. It’s a great app, but given the fact I purchased it, and that they offer a gazillion in-app purchases they could probably tone down the in your face constant ads. I’m sure there’s an option to pay again to disable them, but I won’t be around to find out.
