    Unfreeze the frozen locations Aug 13, 2021

    By Tyler Andreasen
    Can you please unfreeze the locations that are frozen because I was on Anchorage, AK and it’s frozen. So try to do unfreeze other locations that are frozen please! By the way, I love this app so much.

    Really amazing, only thing is I would suggest the developers to add a zoom bar with lock function and the ability to save the setting because I really dislike the distortion at the edges which comes with a wider field of vision since I want the size scale to fit with what I'm seeing with the naked eye. Yeah, other than that it's a neat app with very appealing visuals, including the constellations.

    Great app I love it. I bought once a telescope that asked to get this app and I use it all the time. It is worth the money for premium. But I have a problem. I have on a different device premium but it says that I need to buy premium again even though it was a one time purchase. I even created a star walk account to get back my premium but nothing happened could you help me

However, you cannot use both the compass and change the time simultaneously. I emailed this as a feature request, and they responded that this “doesn’t make sense” because the compass mode is “real-time”. I understand this, but it’s not very helpful when some other stargazing apps (e.g. Night Sky) do provide this ability (and also provide better control of the time).

    Wonderful app. Light pollution & smog often frustrate our view of the night sky, and we are only beginning to surmise how the profound knowledge of the stars—based on naked-eye observation alone—probably enabled our Neandertal & early human ancestors to time & organize such activities as orientation, migrations, hunting/gathering, fishing, & eventually agriculture. Our survival as a species has been linked to the starry universe. With this app you can access the universe of current learning about the stars, planets, asteroids, comets, space dust, dark matter, etc., etc.—all the fascinating stuff out there that many of us too rarely think about. You don’t have to know the technical terms and mathematics of astronomy before you start, but this app might make you want to learn them. Cross-references to Wikipedia help you along and give you an opportunity to participate in generating some data. I like the New Age background music — helps me focus — but if you’re not into that you can mute it. KSSHRINK
  • It's amazing and very helpful. Jun 1, 2018

    By Space Crazy Kid
    I understand that for some they just want to use it for star and constellation locating, and it's great for that. Though for others who plan on going into a field in that kind of subject is great for them to learn where everything we know of is, and how they function. It even gives those people a great understanding of the how much there really is out there. I've managed to learn so much. Even if it doesn't give you every material makeup of all the stars, galaxies, and star clusters, it's still a great source of education. I have much to learn from it, and I highly suggest getting the full deal on it. Maybe someday I'll be able to pursue my dreams, or maybe they'll just stay dreams. But as long as I keep trying my best I might be able to, and this app would have helped me so much. I just want to thank the creators for giving me a chance to study at a low cost, and helping me keep my hope that what I want to do isn't pointless.
  • Starwalk helps son with traumatic brain injury and epilepsy Dec 4, 2017

    By Raistlin's Sweetmama
    This app is everything you or your loved ones could ever want if they’re as in love with space as my son with a traumatic brain injury and epilepsy is. Upon his injury at 5 years old and relearning to walk, talk, eat, and potty train; one thing he never forgot was his love of our night sky and with this app he had before and after his injury he will sit for hours in the backyard playing with the app learning about the heavenly bodies and when it’s day time he will sit inside with his great grandmother (the one that got me into loving the night sky passing it along to my son) showing her things he learned the night before and while many things are difficult for him still this app helps him in his steady quest for knowledge into our cosmos. It’s easy to use and the 3d pictorial constellations make it easier for him to learn what stars make up each constellation. Thank you for this amazing app!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This is for sure my very favorite astronomy app ever. I've been having such a great experience with it. I just would like it to have the divisions of the sky. I also wish it could be all for free, but even the free version is really good so far.
  • Well worth it Nov 9, 2020

    By tg222430
    One of the best things about 2020 for me turned out to be looking at the stars with my iPad at night. There are a lot of good apps for that and so I don’t want to diminish others by saying this one is fantastic. It just happens to have a lot of fun features and the pictures of the constellations together with the music is pretty relaxing. I have learned a lot about the stars using this app. I gravitated toward paying because the ads in other apps are a little intrusive sometimes. A couple of bucks up front to be able to just focus on the sky was well worth it for me. One big plus about this app too is that it gives you a list of things to look out for each month, so you don’t have to search online for info about what’s upcoming in the night sky and be subjected to all the kooky websites you inevitably find whenever you try to find meaningful information on the internet.

  • Good graphics, poor controls Sep 30, 2020

    By oldsneekers
    Graphics show the sky and with tap Identify the object. Controls are a problem: to change date or time one clicks on the unit to be changed then slides a finger across the right side but it’s nearly impossible to get a desired date as a mm of movement makes the numbers (date, hour...) fly by too fast to isolate the desired one - eventually the screen goes bonkers - spinning wildly. Also, The menu’s “sky now” really means select object of interest, as it doesn’t show the sky now but a list solar system elements and their location coordinates . Also, the real time sky view requires the user to hold the phone up so that it is between the desire sky element and the eye-this helps the phone and app know where you are looking but prevents you from seeing both the sky object and it’s representation in the app. Holding the phone straight in from of you displays the horizon across the middle of the screen, instead of at the bottom. Yes you can slide the picture down but this freezes the view so that it doesn’t change when the phone orientation changes unless one taps a button to in freeze it. The app should display what the phone is targeted at but with an offset so the horizon is at the bottom and both the screen and object are seen simultaneously.

    Can't figure out how to operate this. At one time I could just point my phone anywhere in the sky and it told me what was there. Now it always shows west, I can manually move it to say the moon, but it autos right back west again. What the heck am I missing? Everything worked good till I signed up and paid for a package bundle , now I can't go sh-- With it. Operator error obviously!

    Not accurate I enable GPS and is says the sun is right in front of me at NIGHT! Now I no astronomer but if the sun is in my sky it's night except the rare occurrence of an eclipse. Plus it tries to charge you right out gate for "packages" .99 cents a month not a lot but I would rather keep my dollar.

    Awesome App until the last update. I really love this app! But since the last updete, the compass ist completely messed up, I point the phone at the sky and the app shows the wrong stars, i move the phone around at the app doesn't move with it... please fix this! (i made sure that it's not an issue of gps or anything like that, all the settings for that are enabled)

    The moon for me was not in front of me as the app claimed. It was behind and to my left. I wanted to identify a star i did not recognize and it kept saying it was Saturn which it was not. I have been observing the same star for over a year now and thought this app would assist. It is for the casual stargazer who knows little about the sky.

    Fix this!!!I was so happy with this app untill I purchased the upgrade. Now I don't get notifications, which in turn made me turn to another app that gives you all the info this app has and more for free, ad free also. So disappointed, I really enjoyed Star Walk 2. Edit: notifications are on. Once I upgraded it stopped working, I'm here because I got no support when I tried. I am not handing out my email here.

  • Request to allow for recalibration! Feb 25, 2019

    By kmarimba
    I love this app. I loved its predecessor too. But I'm getting increasingly frustrated at the app's inability to recalibrate. I tried using it this morning to show my 3-yr-old that Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto were all in a line (more or less) but had to shift my phone a good six inches to the left to get it to display. I was trying to use the moon as a large visual reference, and no dice. I tried closing the app and relaunching when I got to work, this time using the sun as an easy reference point, and still nothing. I seem to recall that I could recalibrate the original Star Walk whenever I felt it was necessary, and now I can't find anything that lets me even check calibration settings. Extremely frustrating. This app is otherwise totally worth the cost, if I could get it to function!
  • Aug 13, 2021

    By Cat Spitt
    Well, I gave it a chance and tho it was flashy and somewhat entertaining, it lacked any true educational properties. And that is sad. At times confusing with no real guidelines to suggest how you can obtain its full potential, and no, cost should not be an option. Please continue to enjoy this app if you lke it. As for myself, I will uninstall and go back to a simpler time with Sky Map. Keep up the good work. You'll get there.

    At a loss of words, I always knew an app existed but have never thought to look it up till tonight. It is all even more beautiful, you're able to click on a star, planet, satellites,constellations ect. and are able to zoom into it and see it in motion. Love it.
  • Star Walk 2 harnesses the power of your iPad to make a planetarium. Jul 16, 2020

    By gsmollin
    Star Walk 2 presents the user with a conjunction of software and hardware to make a planetarium for use inside and alongside your telescope or binoculars under the night sky. This application lets me check the ephemeris of a night object and then “see” it inside by holding the iPad up to the sky where it shows me a virtual real time night sky, in the exact position objects appear. Then I can repeat this outside and there it is. Even such an ephemeral sight as the ISS will come over the local horizon in the exact position Sky Walk 2 shows. It always amazes me, and makes viewing the night sky easy and productive.
  • Suggestion May 8, 2018

    By kbrndy
    This is a very nice, useful app. However, when I tap on a constellation or while I’m looking at the 3D view, I would like the option of turning off the picture of the mythological person/beast that appears. While using the app to look at the sky, I can choose how I want the constellations to appear, but once I tap on the constellation, the picture appears and obstructs my view. I like seeing the picture, and I love that the app includes information about the mythological person/beast, but I don’t like that the picture obstructs my view of the constellation and all that appears in it. So once I’ve seen the picture, I would like to turn it off. What I really want to see when I tap on a constellation is the boarder lines of the constellation. I.e., I want to see the region of space bordered by the constellation. Here is my reply to the developers response. I appreciate your response, but it looks like you misunderstood my suggestion. I know how to change the settings of the constellations. I mentioned this in my review, and I have my constellations set to appear with the lines connecting the stars. However, when I tap the constellation the picture still appears. This is the part I don’t like and can’t change.
  • Almost Perfect, But Not for NEOWISE or Planning Jul 14, 2020

    By Samyah
    Out of the astronomy/stargazing apps I’ve tried out, this one has one of the best interfaces. It’s easy to use, and the app is just gorgeous. I also love the ability to learn more about various constellations. There is also an ad supported version if you want to try it out first. For those that are annoyed by the music/sounds, it’s also easy to turn off. Now for those wanting to use it to track the NEOWISE comet, unfortunately, you have to pay again for a separate bundle to get access to it. Also for any photographers, this is not the best app for planning. I wanted to be able to use the app to see what would be in a particular part of the sky in the future. However, you cannot use both the compass and change the time simultaneously. I emailed this as a feature request, and they responded that this “doesn’t make sense” because the compass mode is “real-time”. I understand this, but it’s not very helpful when some other stargazing apps (e.g. Night Sky) do provide this ability (and also provide better control of the time).
  • Good app; room for improvement Apr 26, 2019

    By The.Lone.Ranger
    Haven't used it much yet, but what I've seen so far I like for the most part. Will continue to explore and experiment. Two downsides I've noticed thus far, though, that leave room for improvement: 1- The app is pretty large. Wish it could take up a less space--perhaps by giving the option to not carry around all the fancy 3D models of things. 2- Can't find a way to turn off the constellation "artistic renditions." I just want to see the stars and the lines we draw between them, thankyouverymuch. The unavoidable presence of the additional artwork is distracting and unnecessarily cluttering when actually using the app to compare with what's overhead.
  • Cool app Mar 22, 2019

    By ipod geek
    My 4 year old son and I love this app. He loves space more than I do. We were using this app a few days ago and he asked to see Ganymede and Callisto (by name, Jupiter is his favorite). It's very difficult to zoom into the moons of Jupiter. I purchased all the additional content, and the moons were still not there. Could those be added (at least the ones we have imagery for) This app, if you force touch the app icon, will show you stargazing conditions. Mine shows the conditions are currently poor, yet the app sends me notifications of things to go check out. Why does it do this? It’s more like HA HA, look what you’re missing instead of being informational.

    Excellent start gazing app! Love that you can turn off all visuals to just show the actual starts which helps when trying to find a celestial body with the unaided eye. I am having trouble using it on my Lenovo M10 tablet however. When I select the love locator, it says my tablet doesn't have the capability to do so. Can anyone recommend a good Android tablet to use with this app?

    it's good but the next one I believe will be the one to have. I would like to see info about the visible stars on screen that are a bit further out. I know it takes a lot of work but there is not much for excuses anymore is all.
  • Wish I could return it Jun 18, 2019

    I had this open for less than 10 minutes, but apparently that was too long to return it. The music was annoying, but easy to turn off. The sound effects were overdone, but easy to turn off. The constellation images were over the top, and they have animations that shimmer and sparkle when you pan around the sky. They are very distracting and can make the stars of the constellations difficult to see and identify. I couldn’t turn off the sparkle. One option in the settings looked promising, but it didn’t do anything that I could identify. Most annoying is that the app requires an additional in-app purchase for more than a very limited discussion of simple things like individual planets. That isn’t clear here In the App Store. Fortunately this is partly corrected by a button that links directly to Wikipedia. After playing with it some more, I found the setting to “dial down” the animated constellation images. But even the simple stick figures are animated, disappearing and redrawing (note: not “reappearing”) as I pan through the sky. Someone might find that entertaining for a few minutes sitting at their desk, but the feature makes it difficult to compare to the night sky. I’m still very annoyed that an in-app purchase is required to see full content. The jury is still out on notifications.
  • Cool but have encountered some errors Jul 2, 2019

    I really enjoy this app, I love space and seeing all the different constellations and learning about new stuff fascinated me, however I got a notification about a solar eclipse today, and went outside to check it out, and getting confused as there were no signs of an eclipse, I checked the app and sure enough it visually showed there was an eclipse so I checked my location and saw I was in the correct location (I even tried different towns near my city) I then noticed the app said that the eclipse wouldn’t be visible here but it would be in Argentina and Chile, but the app visually showed it being visible in my location, I also checked news sources and they all said it wouldn’t be visible in North America, maybe something went wrong with the tracking, but just wanted the developers to know!

    Beautiful but buggy and unhelpful. After selecting the desired options and notifications, I didn't get notified of events for 3+days /nights and then got a notification for events that already happened weeks ago.
  • Stop with the ADS!!!!! May 10, 2018

    By Davidbiz
    I enjoy the app but have had reason to question their policy of pushing their other apps. A box asking me if I wanted to download another of their apps popped up right across the screen while I was observing the Orion constellation. I was told if I dismissed it, it wouldn’t show up again. We shall see, but that’s still intrusive to the experience and shouldn’t happen. Also a list of other apps popped up on starting the app. I was told this was a “what’s new” offering. Again a list of their other apps for sale. I just want to boot the app and enjoy the experience! Stop these peddling intrusions! Especially when you’ve paid a lot for the app!...not ads!!!
  • Good graphics, poor controls Sep 30, 2020

    By oldsneekers
    Graphics show the sky and with tap Identify the object. Controls are a problem: to change date or time one clicks on the unit to be changed then slides a finger across the right side but it’s nearly impossible to get a desired date as a mm of movement makes the numbers (date, hour...) fly by too fast to isolate the desired one - eventually the screen goes bonkers - spinning wildly. Also, The menu’s “sky now” really means select object of interest, as it doesn’t show the sky now but a list solar system elements and their location coordinates . Also, the real time sky view requires the user to hold the phone up so that it is between the desire sky element and the eye-this helps the phone and app know where you are looking but prevents you from seeing both the sky object and it’s representation in the app. Holding the phone straight in from of you displays the horizon across the middle of the screen, instead of at the bottom. Yes you can slide the picture down but this freezes the view so that it doesn’t change when the phone orientation changes unless one taps a button to in freeze it. The app should display what the phone is targeted at but with an offset so the horizon is at the bottom and both the screen and object are seen simultaneously.

    Awesome App until the last update. I really love this app! But since the last updete, the compass ist completely messed up, I point the phone at the sky and the app shows the wrong stars, i move the phone around at the app doesn't move with it... please fix this! (i made sure that it's not an issue of gps or anything like that, all the settings for that are enabled)
  • Request to allow for recalibration! Feb 25, 2019

    By kmarimba
    I love this app. I loved its predecessor too. But I'm getting increasingly frustrated at the app's inability to recalibrate. I tried using it this morning to show my 3-yr-old that Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto were all in a line (more or less) but had to shift my phone a good six inches to the left to get it to display. I was trying to use the moon as a large visual reference, and no dice. I tried closing the app and relaunching when I got to work, this time using the sun as an easy reference point, and still nothing. I seem to recall that I could recalibrate the original Star Walk whenever I felt it was necessary, and now I can't find anything that lets me even check calibration settings. Extremely frustrating. This app is otherwise totally worth the cost, if I could get it to function!

    Well, I gave it a chance and tho it was flashy and somewhat entertaining, it lacked any true educational properties. And that is sad. At times confusing with no real guidelines to suggest how you can obtain its full potential, and no, cost should not be an option. Please continue to enjoy this app if you lke it. As for myself, I will uninstall and go back to a simpler time with Sky Map. Keep up the good work. You'll get there.

    Can't figure out how to operate this. At one time I could just point my phone anywhere in the sky and it told me what was there. Now it always shows west, I can manually move it to say the moon, but it autos right back west again. What the heck am I missing? Everything worked good till I signed up and paid for a package bundle , now I can't go sh-- With it. Operator error obviously!

    Not accurate I enable GPS and is says the sun is right in front of me at NIGHT! Now I no astronomer but if the sun is in my sky it's night except the rare occurrence of an eclipse. Plus it tries to charge you right out gate for "packages" .99 cents a month not a lot but I would rather keep my dollar.

    The moon for me was not in front of me as the app claimed. It was behind and to my left. I wanted to identify a star i did not recognize and it kept saying it was Saturn which it was not. I have been observing the same star for over a year now and thought this app would assist. It is for the casual stargazer who knows little about the sky.

    Fix this!!!I was so happy with this app untill I purchased the upgrade. Now I don't get notifications, which in turn made me turn to another app that gives you all the info this app has and more for free, ad free also. So disappointed, I really enjoyed Star Walk 2. Edit: notifications are on. Once I upgraded it stopped working, I'm here because I got no support when I tried. I am not handing out my email here.

    Not free. Constant another ads every 15 seconds or so. Absolute rubbish. And directs me in the wrong direction when looking for planets. Horrible. Deleting.
