  • My other world

    At night I am in awe of all that this app shows me thru search and sometimes surprise. My son and daughter n law gave me telescope for Christmas a few years back and with star walk I was able to locate constellations, planets and etc. then I was able to see them through my scope. However meteor showers are often not visible but this app shows me the wonderful light show. I absolutely love this app
  • Informative

    By dia from chitown
    Living in the city it’s hard to know what I see in the sky, so I get to know the constellations.
  • Nnnnnnn

    This app stinks.
  • Too non user friendly

    By Mdgwind
    A good app only if very very experienced. Have to spend a long time reading the manual I suspect. I thought I could just point it at planets and see them but it doesn’t work that way. I pointed it directly at the moon and it doesn’t even recognize it, just all the constellations. Oddly when I pointed it down it found the sun but not the moon when I held it right up pointed directly at it.
  • Can’t find it’s direction

    By slb1701
    Good app., would be 5 stars if it could find north and not always be off by 90 degrees
  • star walk 2 mediocre not meteoric

    By Iv$
    the original star walk is better. star walk 2 promises “3D” presentation but it is more distracting and annoying than helpful. then they push more apps that tease with more and better add ons. not! the searxh and the options are lacking. not worth it.
  • Terrible

    By Lucifer T. Jones
    Used to be good. I should have gotten it free since I paid before and it’s gotten so bad it’s useless - waste of the little money I have. I would like a refund please.
  • Terrible programming.

    By Aceumus357
    I purchased the bundle inside the app but it keeps locking. Apple has confirmed I made the purchase but it just keeps locking after downloading. DO NOT BUY THIS APP. Sky view app is superior in the fact it actually functions properly
  • Works well

    By Surewynn
    Haven’t seen one better. Worth the money
