    Amazing features! I have the full version but even the free version is mind-blowingly good! There are weekly news, you can read about stars and constellations. Also the pictures of the constellations helped me memorize so much! You can even look into the future, see how the Milky Way looks with all kinds of wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. The music and sound effects are perfect as well! I'm simply astonished by the detail and effort put into this APP, great job! Undoubtedly 10/10

  • 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.

    Whoah... I was very skeptical because I used Nite Sky for years. Now that,'s gone and this is its' replacement. The only thing I really care about is motion tracking. So if I point my camera at a certain part of the sky, I want the app to automatically move with my hand movement. It does that really well and has some sharp details. 5 stars from this star gazer.

  • 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).

    This app is the s***. I cannot say enough good things about it. If you are hesitant about the $2.99 fee to remove ads, don't be. It's worth it to be uninterrupted while using this. View the sky now or in the past or future. Get instant info on what you're looking at. See the pictures that the stars make. Absolutely fascinating and worth every penny. Keep up the great work devs!

    Hi-Tech, great animations, but functionally disappointing. I'm kinda a fan of it but when I've used it around friends it doesn't work very well. Finding stuff is cumbersome. My brother's app that is half expensive had a setting where you can be notified if a satellite is coming in your field of view via GPS. And it would tell you what satellite it was. That encouraged me to buy this app. However, this app told me they would get that feature eventually. But it's been well over a year now.

  • 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!

    Not impressed. Compass locked facing south. Looking around does not track smoothly. Position calibration never finalises. The illustrations are nice, however, the actual stars need to be more visible for the constellations. Planet orbit path a nice touch, but unreliable compass/camera direction, untrusted. Far easier/more clear to buy a star map, which you can buy for less than cost of app p2p. As the app is (still) beta, bugs expected. Been a while tho. Location monitoring/snooping app?

  • Original Star Walk App easier to use Jul 12, 2020

    By Sprout's Dad
    While I appreciate the advanced graphics in Star Walk 2, one aspect makes it much more difficult to use than the original App. When I select an object such as a planet, then select the day of the month to advance it using the time line slider on the right side of the screen to see its position over the coming days, the display advances WAY TOO FAST! It is impossible to control no matter how slowly I move the slider. This does not happen with the original Star Walk App. If you just enjoy nice graphics this App is OK. But if you want to really learn the sky, I would recommend the first Star Walk App instead. I sincerely hope this will be fixed. Please!

  • In my next life I’ll be an astronomer Jun 14, 2020

    By 9robins
    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.

    Soothing music outlines constilations (idk how to spell) nice app. Down fall.... Sometimes the scan thing works and other times it stays on what it wants if your device isnt pointing in that direction. Wish they had a recentering button... Maybe point device north to allow you to scan again instead of moving the space with your fingers... It's so big can get lost. Lol.

    If the user interface were better, I'd give it 5 stars. Some functions are not very intuitive. For example, the default operation of Time Machine, with a spinner on the right side of the screen, is difficult to use. However, if you press and hold the clock, a far more useful set of spinners pops up. (The customer support team told me that this is in the manual, but I don't see it.) Another improvement could be made in search. Why not add an "x" to the bottom of the screen after you've searched for something? It took me a while to figure out that you could clear the search by tapping somewhere that doesn't have a star, planet, etc. Yes, I know that this is explained in the Help. Lastly, how about adding some symbol at the top that could be tapped to reveal the compass and time machine? Why does one have to read the instructions to learn that swiping down reveals those functions? It's a great app, but the user interface could be improved.

    The app is pretty good but it's hard to figure out. I purchased the full access and I'm not sure there is a difference from the free version. They claim there are more features to see and more things to do but I still can't figure out how to do them. It seems to keep taking me in circles. Other than that the graphics are really nice and it seems like a very nice app.

    While a decent app with the packs, it really needs a better way of calibrating and keeping track of phone orientation. A calibrate button would, even if pointless, feel much more user friendly. I'm always worried if I'm not focused on the right spot and am constantly trying to recalibrate using the moon. But you also can't manually calibrate vertically, only horizontally. Despite all of this it isn't a terrible app, but it could certainly use some work to keep up with its competitors.

  • Wish I could return it Jun 18, 2019

    By -Occam
    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

    By _D_R_E_W_
    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!

    I think this app is good and I would like it even better if I took time to learn more about it. One thing I NEED TO KNOW is how to exit from the app. I haven't found any Exit, Logout, or any other way to get out. It overlays my phone's Back, Home screen, and Recent buttons. The only way I have found is to turn off my phone and start it again; but that deletes other notifications I want to use. PLEASE tell me another way to exit the app!

  • 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!!!
