  • Excellent, especially if you are a huge space nerd Jul 23, 2018

    By SPACE-BAGEL🚀🌌
    The app is designed very well, with options to change how the constellations appear (lines or actual pictures) and how many stars are visible in the sky. The music is also very nice. You do have to download packs to get information on satellites, the cores of planets, etc. but it is well worth it. The app never lags, which is fantastic, because if you are like me you get the urge to smash furniture when apps are slow. My one complaint (if you can even call it that) is that not every star has its own information. Many of the stars, when you click on their info tab, simply give the definition of a star. I understand that this is because many stars do not have much information known about them, but at the same time I’d rather not be able to recite the “a star is a luminous sphere of plasma...” spiel in my sleep. If you have read this entire review, I feel sorry for you, because you are either very very bored or a 45-year-old with severe indecisiveness.

    this app is amazing it lets you see all the constellations, starts, and planets. There are certain things you have to buy but it works really good even with the things that are free. It lets you see the constellations from your location so if you point it up at the sky you can match the stars to the constellations. At first I didn't really know how to use the app but after around 2 minutes of trying I figured it out, its a really good app.

    I really love this app. I go out every night on my back or front porch and use this as a guide. I never knew these types of apps existed. So glad I found this app now I can star gaze and know what the freak I'm looking at and not guessing if it's a star or a planet! Love that there is a compass in the app so when looking for a certain star or planet, you will know which direction its in! Good job making this I absolutely love it! Thank you and have a wonderful and blessed day! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

    When observing the sky, stars, and planets outside on a clear night this guide is a must have. It helps me with identification, at the same time making star gazing an important part.of my life with connection to this vast universe we live in. Understanding the magnitude of this goes far beyond what we see visually. Those are just some of the things that are intriguing to me personally. Now is the opportunity for universal exploration, whether it be a spiritual one.or otherwise.

    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

    UPDATE! New device shows everything the app says it will! I love looking at the stars and being in the city,, I don't get to see them as clearly as I have in the past. This is as close as it gets the app educational and informative. My only problem, and it's actually with my device.. galaxy tab A ..older.. I can't see the stars where I am, and the device isn't equipped with what it needs I suppose.
  • 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).

    I just got this app today, and I already love it!! It's informative, interactive, creative and fun! I love the music and the AR 3D effects, and all the features are user friendly. I especially enjoy the Time Travel feature. It's fun to see the sky as it was on your birthday, or other events, even into the future.

    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.

    It's kind of odd to see what gets locked behind an add-on when compared to other free apps. The music and sound effects were a nice touch, they reminded me of a sci-fi video game star map; however, they wore out their welcome really fast, especially when using this app when it's really quiet at night. It's a lot more responsive than other apps and is easy to use and navigate, but I just can't get over certain celestial objects being walled off, especially when competing apps show them.

    All I want to do is have my phone point in the direction of where the object is and I can see it. I don't need a bunch of effing constellation images dancing around. Anybody nerdy enough to be looking at a Star satellite app has no interest and fancy stuff just give us what we want to see.

    Very cool app, will show you a lot of neat things about astronomy. The app's platform ruins the good factors though. Requests ridiculous permissions on your phone that it should never have or need. It's also next to impossible to exit out of the app.
  • 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!

    Please make the constellation lines persistent. Meaning show all of the constellation lines without hovering over it or tapping the constellation. It would be easier to see the constellations if the lines were always visible, instead of pointing to them to view each one. Every mode has been selected and the lines still only show up when pointing directly at them. Switched to stellarium since it has what I am looking for and I can disable artwork.

  • 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!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • 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.

    I recently got an 8" Dobsonian and have been useing this app to navigate the sky. Its super simple and very insightful. Being able to click on an object and read about it and than look at it through your telescope makes for a more impressive expericence altogether.

    I really like this app. It's a great free app that you can check out. It teaches you about the heavens and keeps you up to date with celestial events. Meteor showers, planetary events ect. No bugs detected on previous android phone . Astronomy is exciting for children and adults. I will likely get the paid version to utilize the other features. Star walk 2 is basically a dashboard interface behind a 3D projection of the sky as seen from earth. It shows stars,planets and zooms in for detail.

    Great way to keep track of planets, meteor showers and all things Celestial. With more bells and whistles than I could ever learn to use you probably can though. the music is really nice and I think the graphics are top-notch.
  • 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.

    Its a very good app, but more recently I bought the all the add-ons for 5.99 and the next day it shows that I haven't bought any of them, but when I click on all in one purchase, it says "you already own this item" and tells me to contact you guys through email which I did. But no response. I'm hoping you guys can either somehow fix it or give me a refund for it.

    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!
  • Stop with the ADS!!!!! May 10, 2018

    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!!!

    Very cool app, will show you a lot of neat things about astronomy. The app's platform ruins the good factors though. Requests ridiculous permissions on your phone that it should never have or need. It's also next to impossible to exit out of the app.
  • 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!

    It's kind of odd to see what gets locked behind an add-on when compared to other free apps. The music and sound effects were a nice touch, they reminded me of a sci-fi video game star map; however, they wore out their welcome really fast, especially when using this app when it's really quiet at night. It's a lot more responsive than other apps and is easy to use and navigate, but I just can't get over certain celestial objects being walled off, especially when competing apps show them.

    All I want to do is have my phone point in the direction of where the object is and I can see it. I don't need a bunch of effing constellation images dancing around. Anybody nerdy enough to be looking at a Star satellite app has no interest and fancy stuff just give us what we want to see.

    Please make the constellation lines persistent. Meaning show all of the constellation lines without hovering over it or tapping the constellation. It would be easier to see the constellations if the lines were always visible, instead of pointing to them to view each one. Every mode has been selected and the lines still only show up when pointing directly at them. Switched to stellarium since it has what I am looking for and I can disable artwork.
