Review of Starwalk
by SpaceBear7 on 2019/05/11 19:52
Star walk is a great and straightforward app to use for all types of stargazers. I love it in particular for its quick accessibility, and it keeps me informed about what’s happening in the night sky. Even though there are frequent adds, this app is overall extremely helpful.
Es fabuloso
by Fanatizo on 2019/05/08 14:04
Me encanta la aplicación, y me gusta mucho los datos y sugerencias qué hacen disponibles.
Horrendous Ads
by PissyWalk on 2019/05/05 01:27
Not even fun with the rate you are advertised at!!
Star walk 2 paid for version
by David Arthur Webster on 2019/04/20 20:40
The paid for version no ads right people? Wrong, I bought the full package because I felt it would be useful. Every holiday or whenever they feel like it non stop ads back to back!! DO NOT BUY they lie they will keep shooting ads until you’ve purchased every product. They separate the product pieces too earn more money. Its a complete rip off free one is the one to use. I want my money back myself, absolutely worst purchase ever! Ads are still coming no refund. This is example of pure greed! You know if someone that wants your dang products they would look for them! Pushing products annoys people and only the true brain washed couch potato will fell for your nonsense
Great Ap

Amazing/Easy To Use/Incredibly Amount Of Knowledge To Gain!
by #AuntMeme on 2019/04/15 14:12
The moon is a shared interest of mine and my fiancées and has come to be for my children too ❤️ all of us are always on the lookout for it! We have wanted a good telescope to check out the night sky better with as well as the stars and planets but they are difficult to use and identify what you are viewing, if you can manage to focus in on something. This app looked amazing so I downloaded it and bought all the extras. Great price, couldn’t pass it up! I haven’t had a lot of time to play around with it yet but so far I am 100% satisfied with it! I can’t wait to show it to the kids, who I know will keep occupied with it for hours on end because it would me if I had the time to spare! You can find and view anything and everything there is in outer space and everything you could want to know about it right there in front of you and it’s written in language kids, adults and experts can all easily read and understand, that’s what I like. It’s not Astronomer language that you have to struggle through to read and understand and take away no knowledge in the end. I think this is a great app to start with for us, to learn more about the sky and then down the road invest in a nice telescope to go along with it. Anyway I could go on and on just from what I’ve seen on the app so far but I’ll stop here! Thanks for the great app and all the hard work you obviously put into it it’s wonderful and I can’t wait to see how it progresses as time goes on (now we have our 1st picture of a black hole... I’m sure I will see them added sometime soon!) 👍🏻👍🏻
So fun!
by Blobby blob stop my name is🤔 on 2019/04/11 12:47
I love this app because you can see the constellations with your phone. I have a telescope and I can’t really see the stuff that it shows on my phone.
Notifications
by Rovert9790 on 2019/04/10 01:58
I love the app. I use it every night. My only issue is I constantly receive notifications but there’s never any notifications in the app or my email. All my notifications are on. Where do they go?

Too many ads and restore purchase issues
by xleepsx on 2019/04/09 01:45
I have an older version of the original star walk on my iPad and there are NO ads and there never were any ads. I tried to restore my purchases and it would not allow me to, saying that I had never purchased to get rid of ads, even though there were originally were no ads. Overall very confused and disappointed.
Great app
by sam 1415 on 2019/04/06 20:44
Great app but you should keep up to date on Landers. Chang'e 4 and insight are not on it. You should also create a feature where we can see the perspective from the moon, other planets and the ISS.
Too expensive!!!
by Mars be awesome on 2019/03/31 00:50
The "All in One Bundle" is WAY too expensive. Make it cheaper.
“Ad-free” still send ads. Don’t buy!
by shivadance on 2019/03/31 00:37
I purchased the full “ad-free+” bundle and most of the ads disappeared, but they still send advertisements through the notification system. The last one said “Grab all-in-one Bundle with a huge discount” which is clearly trying to sell me something and thus an ad. When I complained, they said it was not an ad but a notification and I could turn it off. But notifications are an otherwise good feature of the app which tells you of astronomical events, so no, I want to keep them on, but without the ads that I payed extra not to see. They finally “thanked me for my opinion”. Nothing was done about this. Don’t pay extra for ad-free as they will not honor it. There are other astronomical apps out there, hopefully more honest. ......Thank you to the developer for replying. To the developer my answer is: a message about “sales and special offers” is a message selling something, which is an advertisement. It’s an ad. To think that it isn’t an ad because you sent it through the notification system is wrong. It’s not just that they “bother” me. I paid your fee for no ads. So don’t send ads. Give me what I paid for. It’s that simple.
Love app ages 11:)

Pathetic
by angeltali on 2019/03/20 18:22
Seriously they can't even get major ursa (the great bear) right! The Big Dipper is the tail. It traces the proper stars but when you zoom in the main stars for feet aren't even the right stars
Great but annoying
by macrame socks on 2019/03/17 20:10
This app works so well it’s super helpful for my astronomy class and it’s super cool. I understand that because this is the free version there are going to be ads but the ads are so annoying. Every single time you look up any constellation or change anything in settings or click on anything in the sky an ad plays and it’s just extremely annoying.
Fun and easy
by Jazz O'Brian on 2019/03/16 06:18
This has been a delight to use as our guide to assist us in using our telescopes. there are many features that help the sky watching amateur. And tidbits of information on the consolations planets and sky happenings. Thanks this was just what we were looking for.

Why star walk is okay
by crazy pugicorn #1 on 2019/03/03 18:47
It is Bad because when ever I click a button I always get an add
Too many ads
by Katara2313 on 2019/03/03 04:42
I understand that when you get a free app, they usually have a lot of ads, but this is ridiculous! Every other time I tap on anything an ad pops up. 60 percent of the time I already have the app it’s advertising.
I like it
by QuirkyRed on 2019/02/21 08:13
I love the graphics, and slowly I’m learning the app. It’s not quite user friendly. Hard to return to where you started once you went into reading about specific stars/planets/etc.

I love the app don’t get me wrong, but I’m not getting the full experience with the app because I have to pay for the extra things I want to show the kids on my bus
To many adds
by Slipeloi on 2019/02/06 04:48
I understand free with adds, but having adds almost every time you zoom in click on anything. Then one right after each other, in less than a minute had 6 adds that’s a little much. With out the abundance of adds the app does do what’s stated.
Hmmmmmm
by Scraptrap on 2019/02/05 17:47
This is a great game to use , but the only problem is the ads
fantastic
by Robbie vs on 2019/02/03 02:12
amazing app love looking at the full set of constellation. it would be cool to see an update where the settings allowed you to change from the standard greek names to label Egyptian constellations or of native tribes from north america, south, africa, etc. highly recommend getting if you don’t already have though!!
Too many ads
by FetchingGiraffe on 2019/02/01 13:51
The app is accurate and easy to use. But there are way too many ads. Plz fix
Ads crash site
by Highway Gypsy on 2019/01/31 18:23
Are used to use this app often a few years ago, I reinstalled it about a year ago for my daughter. The amount of ads on it are ridiculous at this point and will crash the site in midlesson. Found a similar site without the crashing ads problem
Cool blown away

I cant believe it so easy to use
Too many ads
by hilllsd on 2019/01/26 19:00
When I first download the app was hardly any interruptions. Then weeks after loading this app I was going over my file manager and notice multiple Star Walk 2 material download on my phone that I didn’t do. This was the best, it definitely changed. Too many ads with nothing to do with astrology. Once others hacked and discovered discovered the app I was using to learn the constellations and making amazing discoveries here cake the bull. So be cautious I wouldn’t recommend this app at its current stage. But outside of the consistent ads it the best app I ever downloaded

Too many ads...
by funkybm on 2019/01/24 03:15
This is a frustrating app to use when ads pop up every minute and a half. I used to use this app years ago, but now I don't like using it at all.
Good app, bad business practice
by Aonsephonie on 2019/01/23 18:19
Apps which advertise removing their in-app ads are suspicious already, in my book, but I have rarely seen ads delivered as aggressively as with this app. To be clear, this app costs a minimum of $3 to use conveniently or comfortably.
Ad Gimmick
by Mike110449 on 2019/01/23 04:47
The no adds version might work just fine but the free version is so full of junk adds that you feel the company is going out of its way to annoy the customer into purchasing the upgrade. I don’t mind adds but the frequency and the manner in which they appear makes the integrity of the company questionable. Company might want to look at its marketing strategy but based on the other similar reviews I don’t think they are able to get the message at this time. Looking elsewhere.
Great App
by jupiterchic on 2019/01/23 02:21
This is a great app! Informative and easy to use. Love the celestial music to go with star gazing 👍🏻

Beautiful, but the ads they’re using pop up
by Crissa Kentavr on 2019/01/20 22:45
A pop up ad that keeps me from learning the ui kinda makes it impossible to review. Like really, I don’t mind ads in a demo, but they shouldn’t cover the screen and pop full brightness randomly.
Make the rate app pop up red
by Grimstod on 2019/01/18 20:12
There have been many times that i have been using the app and i was suddenly blinded by the rate this app pop up. It is white after all and when i have the app in red mode its a terrible annoyance. 5 stars because the rest of the app works.

by waka waka were the Jenkins on 2019/01/10 06:52
I have used several other applications, and I am disappointed in the star walk 2 free version. Every time I try to learn about a planet or star, I get bombarded with advertisements. It is impossible to learn anything with this application. Also there seems to be a bug where I cannot turn off the shiny outlines of the constellations. There is a toggle in the preferences which does not seem to work. Clunky software

App Won’t Work
by JMoore501 on 2019/01/04 04:45
I have an iPhone 7 and the app recently stopped working. It was great when it worked during the first couple weeks I had it, but suddenly it won’t open past the title screen and goes to black. I deleted, reinstalled and then it locked on the location setup screen followed by the same ol’ thing when I restarted (locked on title screen). It’s a real shame because this was quickly becoming a favorite, but I’ll be moving on if a fix doesn’t come about shortly.
Does not work
by costipated on 2019/01/03 23:06
I live in Miami. This app does not open. I’ve deleted and added multiple times. I tried manually putting in my location. Each time , It freezes. When I try auto locate, It says unable to find location. I have a strong LTE signal ,and go back and forth with WiFi. No luck.

App doesn’t work
by clinton4president on 2018/12/28 01:04
Free version won’t run even tho it is compatible with my phone and I have plenty of space. The app will show the Star Walk 2 title and then goes to a black screen after that with 3 page dots at the bottom of the screen. If left there the app will crash and from that point on will only stay on the title screen unless it is deleted and re downloaded then it acts as aforementioned. Tried downloading it on my moms phone and same issue.
One thing
by bunny flarion 2010 on 2018/12/27 18:36
I love this game but when I searched for Uranus it would show me constellations but not Uranus.
This is awesome
by Sileced on 2018/12/26 05:50
I really liked it because I often stargaze when I have nothing to do at night with my telescope. Alongside my telescope, I also use this app to coordinate where I’m aiming my telescope and it’s cool to know what star I’m looking at as well as how far from earth it is in light years, also considering at how old the light from that star is projecting (i.e a star 157 light years away tells me I’m looking at a star that has current light 157 years ago. It can be kind of complicated for people who don’t know what I’m talking about.) but the only annoying thing is that every time I close a star to look at a new, it gives an ad. This is okay with me, so long it isn’t excessive. But I do tend to mute the ad so it doesn’t ruin my peaceful experience with the already beautiful soundtrack. But I’d totally recommend this app to anyone who is a stargazer like me.
Looks nice, but I don’t get accurate location of the stars
by WiccanSorcière on 2018/12/26 03:35
The app looks pretty nice and it has good information to learn about he sky, but it doesn’t calibrate well on my cellphone.

Ads pop up about every 5 seconds. Very annoying. Can’t view anything without an ad pop up. Original Star Walk was much better.
Annoying app

Ads ruin app- do NOT get
by k.borras on 2018/12/16 18:52
I’ve read the reviews but thought I’d check it out to see what’s what- and no, this app unusable and worthless for its intended purpose. All it is is a “sucker” app, hoping people that wanna use it right and get something from it get so mad by the adds they pay the money just to not deal with it- made more obvious by the robotic response from the app developers when anyone mentions this in the reviews. Ya, we get that we are getting the free version so have to deal with adds, but the frequency of the adds makes the app a waste of space on your phone and they lose a significant amount of people from irritation that aren’t gonna buy the add free version out of spite. The developers need to have a FUNCTIONING free version that shows people they could get MORE from a paid version NOT just a lack of irritants.
Star Walk 2
by genxorsn on 2018/12/16 18:31
This app is great! I love that you are able to find constellations in your area and learn about them too! I definitely recommend this app for anyone who likes learn about astronomy and likes to stargaze!
Love it!!
by 5strong on 2018/12/16 11:30
I love this app! As a person who is really interested in astrology and is curious, I find this app really cool and helpful if you’re into that stuff. You can see all the constellations up around you. Though it can work on just tiny bit of accuracy, but it’s not that big of a deal since everything is set in place👍🏼
Good app

Doesn’t track Orbital Reflector
by BeatsDaily on 2018/12/11 04:37
I downloaded this app to track the Orbital Reflector and this feature definitely doesn’t work. It will display it rising in the southern sky and then setting in the northern sky 3 minutes later. I’ve tried on multiple nights to view it. If you leave the app open for too long the tracking looses function. So instead, I’ll close the app, refresh it, and it shows the object in a completely different place in the sky. There’s no way it traveled across the night sky in 3 minutes. What a crappy app! I was told this is the app to use in order to view this object, but obviously this feature does not work at all. What a bummer!!

Love this app - but my deep space objects are not showing
by BettyttA on 2018/12/03 03:48
I love this app, However, recently all deep space objects have disappeared. I have bought all bundles and it says that deep space objects are installed - yet when I look up any nebula, galaxy, etc - when I zoom in it just shows a dot rather than the whole color image. Is this a glitch?

This app worked one single time in trial mode with ads. I thought it was so cool I paid the $5.99 for the full version and it has not worked again. Total crap. I just had my girlfriend come outside to look at the stars and she's like "yeah I'm going inside."
“Ad-free” still send ads. Don’t buy!
by shivadance on 2019/03/31 00:37
I purchased the full “ad-free+” bundle and most of the ads disappeared, but they still send advertisements through the notification system. The last one said “Grab all-in-one Bundle with a huge discount” which is clearly trying to sell me something and thus an ad. When I complained, they said it was not an ad but a notification and I could turn it off. But notifications are an otherwise good feature of the app which tells you of astronomical events, so no, I want to keep them on, but without the ads that I payed extra not to see. They finally “thanked me for my opinion”. Nothing was done about this. Don’t pay extra for ad-free as they will not honor it. There are other astronomical apps out there, hopefully more honest. ......Thank you to the developer for replying. To the developer my answer is: a message about “sales and special offers” is a message selling something, which is an advertisement. It’s an ad. To think that it isn’t an ad because you sent it through the notification system is wrong. It’s not just that they “bother” me. I paid your fee for no ads. So don’t send ads. Give me what I paid for. It’s that simple.
Exactly what I wanted plus some
by Carylynn75 on 2018/07/19 10:38
I think the free version of this app is great, so awesome that even though the free version has all that I needed to know (we had mars hanging in the eastern sky and Jupiter in the West every night for the last month), I’m considering just upgrading because the information about the stars and planets is so much fun for all of us. Even driving down the highway, without internet service, the calibration to my phones compass kept everything where it was suppose to be. I was concerned after I read the first review that I wouldn’t be able to find the information we were asking ourselves all month due to adds, but up until I used a notification about the international space station rising to open the app I hadn’t seen an add at all, except for when I would click on some planets and stars for more information when I would get a suggestion to upgrade for the extra planet information. Very cool app.
This is awesome
by Sileced on 2018/12/26 05:50
I really liked it because I often stargaze when I have nothing to do at night with my telescope. Alongside my telescope, I also use this app to coordinate where I’m aiming my telescope and it’s cool to know what star I’m looking at as well as how far from earth it is in light years, also considering at how old the light from that star is projecting (i.e a star 157 light years away tells me I’m looking at a star that has current light 157 years ago. It can be kind of complicated for people who don’t know what I’m talking about.) but the only annoying thing is that every time I close a star to look at a new, it gives an ad. This is okay with me, so long it isn’t excessive. But I do tend to mute the ad so it doesn’t ruin my peaceful experience with the already beautiful soundtrack. But I’d totally recommend this app to anyone who is a stargazer like me.
OULD BE a Great app, but in-app purchases don’t go to a new phone 😡
by Angeleyes715 on 2018/09/01 20:44
I loved using the app, but I got tired of the ads. I purchased the whole she-bang in app bundle and was very happy. I would think that since I’m signed in to the same iTunes account I was on my last phone, it would carry my in-app purchase. I was angry when I found it didn’t. Now I’m stuck with ads again. Even when I hit the “restore” button, nothing happens. I mean nothing. I could push it a hundred times and nothing. Would be 5 stars without this issue. UPDATE: After contacting the company as they requested, several emails back and forth later, they asked me to send proof that I made an in app purchase. I had to dig but found n email from Christmas time 2 years go. I sent them the screenshot in an email, offered to FW the actual email, and that’s when I stopped hearing back from them. This is unbelievable. This is the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Very disappointed.
ads
by WeGoPro on 2018/10/19 09:36
You did not read my comment. My version of starwalk 2 was not useable. ads disabled the app... I guess you designed that feature as well? Confusing. I did revert to your previous version which is also free and deleted the current version we are discussing. "We are sorry that ads spoil your impression of the app. We appreciate our users and created 2 versions (free ad-supported and paid with no ads) of Star Walk 2 to give them the opportunity to try the app without paying for it. A lot of users enjoy the free version regardless of advertising. Having a choice between the paid and free but ad-supported version is better than not even being able to try the app without purchasing it... Hope you understand." cant attempt to test it, ads kill the app... thank you for the response. I do understand it is free and “ad supported”... but that is misleading. It is more like the app supports the ads. You dont have to annoy people into buying your real version... simple ignorant (ignorant... not stupid) responses such as the one you provided, they simply make us hold the app and press “x”. You should delete this rating, because others will see where I am coming from. Thanks for the response and the app. I will find another.
Amazing!!!
by authenticallyme1217 on 2018/09/23 12:22
I’ve always been into star/planet gazing. After searching for a good app on my phone to learn more about space, I cam across this app. A-MAZING!! I started out with the free app, but quickly purchased the app to get the full scope. Oh goodness, we’ve enjoyed Mars, Venus, Saturn, and Jupiter for the past month right in our backyard! The information this app provides is so helpful to us novice stargazers. I even look forward to the notifications to learn even more. This app has been so helpful to my 5yr old to learn about planets and stars- she’s always ready to go outside and discover more. Thank you for such an amazing app!!
Worth it
by ireallylikethesestars on 2018/07/29 16:41
This is the best star app I have ever seen. You can scroll around the sky manually or tilt your phone to show the position of the stars and even the sun and moon. You can also change the level of “light pollution” to see more or less stars. Tapping on a celestial body yields more information (this is the part where you get ads- Mostly banners.) The planets also show up! Even the fabled planet 9 makes an appearance (no, not pluto :( ) constellations and stars are named, and are traced out as you look at them. An unobtrusive picture of what the constellation “looks” like also appears. This is so useful!!!
Ads ruin app- do NOT get
by k.borras on 2018/12/16 18:52
I’ve read the reviews but thought I’d check it out to see what’s what- and no, this app unusable and worthless for its intended purpose. All it is is a “sucker” app, hoping people that wanna use it right and get something from it get so mad by the adds they pay the money just to not deal with it- made more obvious by the robotic response from the app developers when anyone mentions this in the reviews. Ya, we get that we are getting the free version so have to deal with adds, but the frequency of the adds makes the app a waste of space on your phone and they lose a significant amount of people from irritation that aren’t gonna buy the add free version out of spite. The developers need to have a FUNCTIONING free version that shows people they could get MORE from a paid version NOT just a lack of irritants.
Doesn’t track Orbital Reflector
by BeatsDaily on 2018/12/11 04:37
I downloaded this app to track the Orbital Reflector and this feature definitely doesn’t work. It will display it rising in the southern sky and then setting in the northern sky 3 minutes later. I’ve tried on multiple nights to view it. If you leave the app open for too long the tracking looses function. So instead, I’ll close the app, refresh it, and it shows the object in a completely different place in the sky. There’s no way it traveled across the night sky in 3 minutes. What a crappy app! I was told this is the app to use in order to view this object, but obviously this feature does not work at all. What a bummer!!
Can’t even test it with the excessive ads
by Kyle14532 on 2017/11/10 15:00
I want to try this app before I buy the full version, but seemingly every few seconds an add takes up the screen. I can’t even view the stars due to this. Please change this - update: The only apparent fix by the developer is “if you don’t like the ads pay for no ads”. Well, I actually want to see if it’s worth my money before I purchase an app, which is not possible with the excessive ads. The developer knows this problem, however they only care about your money, and not satisfaction. Please download other versions that are not money pits. I will change my review if I see this problem fixed.
Ads Make Free Version Unusable
by faineoller on 2018/07/26 04:48
Constant interruptions with ads taking up more than half the screen and Special Offer badges you can’t dismiss make using free version annoying and amounts to coercion to purchase. How is one to know whether the App is useful and enjoyable or not with the frustration from pitches to buy and large screen disabling ads? I finally closed the App and will probably delete. A better way to win a new user would be to allow full featured use for a limited time, after that time expires, you can buy or use free with ads. Frustration and heavy-handed marketing pitches to upgrade does not a potential happy customer make.
Too many ads
by hilllsd on 2019/01/26 19:00
When I first download the app was hardly any interruptions. Then weeks after loading this app I was going over my file manager and notice multiple Star Walk 2 material download on my phone that I didn’t do. This was the best, it definitely changed. Too many ads with nothing to do with astrology. Once others hacked and discovered discovered the app I was using to learn the constellations and making amazing discoveries here cake the bull. So be cautious I wouldn’t recommend this app at its current stage. But outside of the consistent ads it the best app I ever downloaded
This is an amazing app!
by Paul Bartholomew on 2018/08/16 00:53
The app is well designed. I’ve always loved the stars since I was a little kid but now it has come full circle. If you’re looking for some educational fun with your children this is the perfect tool. This has been a wonderful learning experience for them. They have never been so excited to learn a new star, constellation or celestial event. I must say, it has been enlightening for myself as well.
Pretty to look at but lacks basic functions
by Hugo7000G1 on 2018/05/16 10:53
I have the full paid version with every option. It is a very beautiful interface with many features. BUT...it lacks one feature that is unacceptable for an astronomy app. The settings do not allow for Messier Object Labelling. There is no option to choose what objects you want labelled or not. Sure, you can access the side menu and select a Messier object one at a time...but to use this as a serious star chart for telescope use is futile. I also have a free app of Star Chart which had the good sense to label Messier objects like it does with the stars, and has every feature I wish this app had. Shame I paid for this one. Since developers read reviews here, I am begging you...just add a toggle switch that allows Messier objects to have labels on the map, and this would gladly change my rating to 5 star app!
Great
by puppette0205 on 2017/11/11 18:38
This is a great app, and perfect for astronomy without the fancy equipment. It does have inapp purchases, but it still works very well without them. It does have quite a bit of adds, but they're not popping up one after another. This is an overall amazing app and you can still use it during the day because obviously the stars are still there during the day.
Review: okay
by hrrixbansif on 2018/07/10 04:36
It’s okay. It’s just the fact that the adds are a little annoying, but all adds are. Also everything they do seems like they’re pushing you into getting upgraded and I find that annoying, because I don’t want to upgrade and I think if you stopped forcing it and left the app as it was it would maybe make people think “ this is cool, I want more so I’ll go to the premium, and I don’t feel pressured or forced.” See. Just a suggestion though.
Great but annoying
by macrame socks on 2019/03/17 20:10
This app works so well it’s super helpful for my astronomy class and it’s super cool. I understand that because this is the free version there are going to be ads but the ads are so annoying. Every single time you look up any constellation or change anything in settings or click on anything in the sky an ad plays and it’s just extremely annoying.
Ads take over the entire App
by MBehrouzi on 2018/07/16 04:57
This App basically can’t be used without buying ALL of the extra features. I understand the need / desire to make revenue through in-App purchases but this is excessive. Instead of purchasing the “bundle” that has all elements plus removal of ads I bought two different $1 packs - planets and constellations - specifically because I could see Venus and wanted to know more. Even after buying the planet bundle when I click on Venus in the App I get ZERO extra information about the planet, but get a full screen ad with the ability to exit either removed (specific time you have to watch the ad) or quite hidden. This is a questionable business practice, and makes using the App (even after buying the planet and constellation packs) nearly impossible. Don’t waste your time unless you want to pay the full amount for all features and ad removal.
App Won’t Work
by JMoore501 on 2019/01/04 04:45
I have an iPhone 7 and the app recently stopped working. It was great when it worked during the first couple weeks I had it, but suddenly it won’t open past the title screen and goes to black. I deleted, reinstalled and then it locked on the location setup screen followed by the same ol’ thing when I restarted (locked on title screen). It’s a real shame because this was quickly becoming a favorite, but I’ll be moving on if a fix doesn’t come about shortly.
Love it!!
by 5strong on 2018/12/16 11:30
I love this app! As a person who is really interested in astrology and is curious, I find this app really cool and helpful if you’re into that stuff. You can see all the constellations up around you. Though it can work on just tiny bit of accuracy, but it’s not that big of a deal since everything is set in place👍🏼
Shooting Stars
by None4Me123 on 2017/11/11 22:04
Also, please add a feature where you can see the constellations back in like 1000 BC and also years from now!!! That would be awesome! I love the app! Just one suggestion... can you add a feature where it shows when shooting stars are visible in the night sky? That would be most fun! And awesome!
fantastic
by Robbie vs on 2019/02/03 02:12
amazing app love looking at the full set of constellation. it would be cool to see an update where the settings allowed you to change from the standard greek names to label Egyptian constellations or of native tribes from north america, south, africa, etc. highly recommend getting if you don’t already have though!!
Ad Gimmick
by Mike110449 on 2019/01/23 04:47
The no adds version might work just fine but the free version is so full of junk adds that you feel the company is going out of its way to annoy the customer into purchasing the upgrade. I don’t mind adds but the frequency and the manner in which they appear makes the integrity of the company questionable. Company might want to look at its marketing strategy but based on the other similar reviews I don’t think they are able to get the message at this time. Looking elsewhere.
Have a question a BIG guestion
by CadenceHeart on 2018/08/21 19:25
I love this app to death! But I would like to know if we could see the satellite that was launched for the sun on “August 10” Because I would like to see it. So please make it so we could. Besides that only thing amazing app! I would like it to be added though. Great work though. Ok Byeeee!
Make the rate app pop up red
by Grimstod on 2019/01/18 20:12
There have been many times that i have been using the app and i was suddenly blinded by the rate this app pop up. It is white after all and when i have the app in red mode its a terrible annoyance. 5 stars because the rest of the app works.
It might be nice...
by XarisBaker on 2018/10/16 03:45
Seems like a great app, but I’m sick of having to hit “close ad” every time I do anything, like click on a constellation to see it better. Yes, I know “ads can easily be removed if I buy the whatchacallit pack”, but I’m not about to spend $5 on an app I can’t even properly evaluate because of the frequency of the ads. It could be a garbage app or a masterpiece and I’d never know because the free version is useless. At least the other paid sky apps are half the price and have functional free versions.
Can’t even get a proper demo
by slothrop86 on 2017/12/18 23:29
I would happily pay for this app if I could give it a proper try-out first. Anything I do puts a full-page ad up which when you’re outside (like, with the sky) with night mode enabled definitely makes you want to delete the app right away, which I did, and then leave this review, which I’m now doing. Please make the free version less annoying because I would love to give it another try. Until then this is deleted and Star Walk 1 will work fine.
Star walker 2
by mitchiemouse on 2018/07/08 00:01
Can’t wait to tryout this app tonight!!! The app without the upgrade leaves something to be desired but;the live stars with the app applied is amazing!!! Tech team; looking forward for better user friendly upgrades—-keep working on it!!! I think you have a wonderful app; keep it up!!! Yeah team; for the novice it’s wonderful!!!
Too many ads and restore purchase issues
by xleepsx on 2019/04/09 01:45
I have an older version of the original star walk on my iPad and there are NO ads and there never were any ads. I tried to restore my purchases and it would not allow me to, saying that I had never purchased to get rid of ads, even though there were originally were no ads. Overall very confused and disappointed.
The great Ursa bears.... outlining images???
by De L'Humain on 2018/03/14 16:01
The image outlines for Ursa Minor and Majorie are both displayed mirrored. I don’t know if this app is using the Greek mythology or some other terrestrial mythology for there basis for the outlining images, but I believe they are all pretty much the same. Please forgive me if I’m just overlooking a setting within the app.
Star walk 2 paid for version
by David Arthur Webster on 2019/04/20 20:40
The paid for version no ads right people? Wrong, I bought the full package because I felt it would be useful. Every holiday or whenever they feel like it non stop ads back to back!! DO NOT BUY they lie they will keep shooting ads until you’ve purchased every product. They separate the product pieces too earn more money. Its a complete rip off free one is the one to use. I want my money back myself, absolutely worst purchase ever! Ads are still coming no refund. This is example of pure greed! You know if someone that wants your dang products they would look for them! Pushing products annoys people and only the true brain washed couch potato will fell for your nonsense
Notifications
by Rovert9790 on 2019/04/10 01:58
I love the app. I use it every night. My only issue is I constantly receive notifications but there’s never any notifications in the app or my email. All my notifications are on. Where do they go?
App doesn’t work
by clinton4president on 2018/12/28 01:04
Free version won’t run even tho it is compatible with my phone and I have plenty of space. The app will show the Star Walk 2 title and then goes to a black screen after that with 3 page dots at the bottom of the screen. If left there the app will crash and from that point on will only stay on the title screen unless it is deleted and re downloaded then it acts as aforementioned. Tried downloading it on my moms phone and same issue.
Kinda good
by Bailyn Hall on 2018/03/24 23:37
It is the best stargazing app BUT I purchased the app on my old phone that I no longer use and I had a account and I logged in and I did not have the bundle! ( before I did it on my other old old phone and it worked) please respond
Love this app - but my deep space objects are not showing
by BettyttA on 2018/12/03 03:48
I love this app, However, recently all deep space objects have disappeared. I have bought all bundles and it says that deep space objects are installed - yet when I look up any nebula, galaxy, etc - when I zoom in it just shows a dot rather than the whole color image. Is this a glitch?
Best Star Mapping
by 7flutterbys on 2018/08/30 09:17
Best star mapping app I have seen. When I can’t sleep, I can go for a Star Walk, even if it is cloudy, to find where the stars are at! I can even “see” thru the earth to the other side to get a complete picture of my world! Thanks Star Walk!!!
Awesome Free App
by jenhenco on 2018/06/19 01:05
Great app for star gazers. So many times a new “star” shows up in the night sky and this app always helps me figure out what it is. I like be that you can click on a star that your looking at and get information about it!
Review of Starwalk
by SpaceBear7 on 2019/05/11 19:52
Star walk is a great and straightforward app to use for all types of stargazers. I love it in particular for its quick accessibility, and it keeps me informed about what’s happening in the night sky. Even though there are frequent adds, this app is overall extremely helpful.
Concan, TX
by canjunlady on 2018/09/02 18:15
We were all sitting outside and the kids were playing. Adults were just sitting around drinking and someone mentioned this app. Everyone enjoyed looking at the stars and figuring out what was what. We were all mesmerized.
Fun and Educational !
by MemeSheryl8 on 2018/09/02 22:23
Our entire family enjoys using this app and we have learned so much. It has really helped us use our Celestron telescope much more effectively. Well worth the price for the ad free version and upgrades.
Too many ads
by mastertim94 on 2017/09/29 12:56
I understand that this is the free version of that app and that ads are something that is stated that will be in the app but this is a little excessive. About every 10 seconds there is an ad that takes over your screen. I was interested in trying out the app and if I liked it I would buy the ad free option but I can't really even test it with the amount of ads that are there.
To many adds
by Slipeloi on 2019/02/06 04:48
I understand free with adds, but having adds almost every time you zoom in click on anything. Then one right after each other, in less than a minute had 6 adds that’s a little much. With out the abundance of adds the app does do what’s stated.
Star Walk 2
by genxorsn on 2018/12/16 18:31
This app is great! I love that you are able to find constellations in your area and learn about them too! I definitely recommend this app for anyone who likes learn about astronomy and likes to stargaze!
Awesome!
by 7turtles on 2018/04/08 22:09
I am into astronomy and astrophysics. When I was introduced to this app, I was awed. I never knew how many constellations there are! This app teaches you a lot about how constellations work and the distance between earth and these stars and the planets. Awesome app, educational and professionally executed.
Good
by bigmaddenman on 2018/11/25 22:47
I really like this app the thing is that every once in a while you will tap on something and then a pop up ad will show and it’s the same one every time😤😣
I love the universe
by spiritofshiloh on 2018/07/22 04:41
This app is awesome. Since I am on a fixed income I am pleased to get this app free. Thank you. When I am in bed at night I can still watch the universe and its many wonders and beauty while in the dark. The music is awesome and fits the stars, planets & universe.⭐️🌙💫🌟⭐️🌙🌙💫
Fun and easy
by Jazz O'Brian on 2019/03/16 06:18
This has been a delight to use as our guide to assist us in using our telescopes. there are many features that help the sky watching amateur. And tidbits of information on the consolations planets and sky happenings. Thanks this was just what we were looking for.
Great app all in all
by Masamunz on 2018/09/25 02:41
Great app! You get ads on the free version but it's still amazing! I haven't paid yet but there are lots of cool features it provides. Free version has a option for constellations with and without art.
Ads come up way too often
by tisnewtome on 2018/07/31 06:03
I’m ok with seeing ads but not nearly every time I touch a star or planet or button. I don’t know if it’s worth the money to buy the ad free version and I’m just trying to learn how the app works and it’s impossible to get the feel for it when I’m interrupted by the pop up ad every touch. And it’s the same ad that comes up every time which makes it even more annoying.

Review of Starwalk
by SpaceBear7 on 2019/05/11 19:52
Star walk is a great and straightforward app to use for all types of stargazers. I love it in particular for its quick accessibility, and it keeps me informed about what’s happening in the night sky. Even though there are frequent adds, this app is overall extremely helpful.
Es fabuloso

Me encanta la aplicación, y me gusta mucho los datos y sugerencias qué hacen disponibles.
Horrendous Ads

Not even fun with the rate you are advertised at!!
Star walk 2 paid for version
by David Arthur Webster on 2019/04/20 20:40
The paid for version no ads right people? Wrong, I bought the full package because I felt it would be useful. Every holiday or whenever they feel like it non stop ads back to back!! DO NOT BUY they lie they will keep shooting ads until you’ve purchased every product. They separate the product pieces too earn more money. Its a complete rip off free one is the one to use. I want my money back myself, absolutely worst purchase ever! Ads are still coming no refund. This is example of pure greed! You know if someone that wants your dang products they would look for them! Pushing products annoys people and only the true brain washed couch potato will fell for your nonsense
Great Ap

Amazing/Easy To Use/Incredibly Amount Of Knowledge To Gain!
by #AuntMeme on 2019/04/15 14:12
The moon is a shared interest of mine and my fiancées and has come to be for my children too ❤️ all of us are always on the lookout for it! We have wanted a good telescope to check out the night sky better with as well as the stars and planets but they are difficult to use and identify what you are viewing, if you can manage to focus in on something. This app looked amazing so I downloaded it and bought all the extras. Great price, couldn’t pass it up! I haven’t had a lot of time to play around with it yet but so far I am 100% satisfied with it! I can’t wait to show it to the kids, who I know will keep occupied with it for hours on end because it would me if I had the time to spare! You can find and view anything and everything there is in outer space and everything you could want to know about it right there in front of you and it’s written in language kids, adults and experts can all easily read and understand, that’s what I like. It’s not Astronomer language that you have to struggle through to read and understand and take away no knowledge in the end. I think this is a great app to start with for us, to learn more about the sky and then down the road invest in a nice telescope to go along with it. Anyway I could go on and on just from what I’ve seen on the app so far but I’ll stop here! Thanks for the great app and all the hard work you obviously put into it it’s wonderful and I can’t wait to see how it progresses as time goes on (now we have our 1st picture of a black hole... I’m sure I will see them added sometime soon!) 👍🏻👍🏻
So fun!
by Blobby blob stop my name is🤔 on 2019/04/11 12:47
I love this app because you can see the constellations with your phone. I have a telescope and I can’t really see the stuff that it shows on my phone.
Notifications
by Rovert9790 on 2019/04/10 01:58
I love the app. I use it every night. My only issue is I constantly receive notifications but there’s never any notifications in the app or my email. All my notifications are on. Where do they go?

Too many ads and restore purchase issues
by xleepsx on 2019/04/09 01:45
I have an older version of the original star walk on my iPad and there are NO ads and there never were any ads. I tried to restore my purchases and it would not allow me to, saying that I had never purchased to get rid of ads, even though there were originally were no ads. Overall very confused and disappointed.
Great app
by sam 1415 on 2019/04/06 20:44
Great app but you should keep up to date on Landers. Chang'e 4 and insight are not on it. You should also create a feature where we can see the perspective from the moon, other planets and the ISS.
Too expensive!!!
by Mars be awesome on 2019/03/31 00:50
The "All in One Bundle" is WAY too expensive. Make it cheaper.
“Ad-free” still send ads. Don’t buy!
by shivadance on 2019/03/31 00:37
I purchased the full “ad-free+” bundle and most of the ads disappeared, but they still send advertisements through the notification system. The last one said “Grab all-in-one Bundle with a huge discount” which is clearly trying to sell me something and thus an ad. When I complained, they said it was not an ad but a notification and I could turn it off. But notifications are an otherwise good feature of the app which tells you of astronomical events, so no, I want to keep them on, but without the ads that I payed extra not to see. They finally “thanked me for my opinion”. Nothing was done about this. Don’t pay extra for ad-free as they will not honor it. There are other astronomical apps out there, hopefully more honest. ......Thank you to the developer for replying. To the developer my answer is: a message about “sales and special offers” is a message selling something, which is an advertisement. It’s an ad. To think that it isn’t an ad because you sent it through the notification system is wrong. It’s not just that they “bother” me. I paid your fee for no ads. So don’t send ads. Give me what I paid for. It’s that simple.

Seriously they can't even get major ursa (the great bear) right! The Big Dipper is the tail. It traces the proper stars but when you zoom in the main stars for feet aren't even the right stars
Great but annoying
by macrame socks on 2019/03/17 20:10
This app works so well it’s super helpful for my astronomy class and it’s super cool. I understand that because this is the free version there are going to be ads but the ads are so annoying. Every single time you look up any constellation or change anything in settings or click on anything in the sky an ad plays and it’s just extremely annoying.
Fun and easy
by Jazz O'Brian on 2019/03/16 06:18
This has been a delight to use as our guide to assist us in using our telescopes. there are many features that help the sky watching amateur. And tidbits of information on the consolations planets and sky happenings. Thanks this was just what we were looking for.

Why star walk is okay
by crazy pugicorn #1 on 2019/03/03 18:47
It is Bad because when ever I click a button I always get an add
Too many ads
by Katara2313 on 2019/03/03 04:42
I understand that when you get a free app, they usually have a lot of ads, but this is ridiculous! Every other time I tap on anything an ad pops up. 60 percent of the time I already have the app it’s advertising.
I like it
by QuirkyRed on 2019/02/21 08:13
I love the graphics, and slowly I’m learning the app. It’s not quite user friendly. Hard to return to where you started once you went into reading about specific stars/planets/etc.

by Slipeloi on 2019/02/06 04:48
I understand free with adds, but having adds almost every time you zoom in click on anything. Then one right after each other, in less than a minute had 6 adds that’s a little much. With out the abundance of adds the app does do what’s stated.
Hmmmmmm

amazing app love looking at the full set of constellation. it would be cool to see an update where the settings allowed you to change from the standard greek names to label Egyptian constellations or of native tribes from north america, south, africa, etc. highly recommend getting if you don’t already have though!!
Too many ads
by FetchingGiraffe on 2019/02/01 13:51

Ads crash site
by Highway Gypsy on 2019/01/31 18:23

Too many ads
by hilllsd on 2019/01/26 19:00
When I first download the app was hardly any interruptions. Then weeks after loading this app I was going over my file manager and notice multiple Star Walk 2 material download on my phone that I didn’t do. This was the best, it definitely changed. Too many ads with nothing to do with astrology. Once others hacked and discovered discovered the app I was using to learn the constellations and making amazing discoveries here cake the bull. So be cautious I wouldn’t recommend this app at its current stage. But outside of the consistent ads it the best app I ever downloaded

by funkybm on 2019/01/24 03:15
This is a frustrating app to use when ads pop up every minute and a half. I used to use this app years ago, but now I don't like using it at all.
Good app, bad business practice
by Aonsephonie on 2019/01/23 18:19
Apps which advertise removing their in-app ads are suspicious already, in my book, but I have rarely seen ads delivered as aggressively as with this app. To be clear, this app costs a minimum of $3 to use conveniently or comfortably.
Ad Gimmick
by Mike110449 on 2019/01/23 04:47
The no adds version might work just fine but the free version is so full of junk adds that you feel the company is going out of its way to annoy the customer into purchasing the upgrade. I don’t mind adds but the frequency and the manner in which they appear makes the integrity of the company questionable. Company might want to look at its marketing strategy but based on the other similar reviews I don’t think they are able to get the message at this time. Looking elsewhere.
Great App
by jupiterchic on 2019/01/23 02:21

by Crissa Kentavr on 2019/01/20 22:45
A pop up ad that keeps me from learning the ui kinda makes it impossible to review. Like really, I don’t mind ads in a demo, but they shouldn’t cover the screen and pop full brightness randomly.
Make the rate app pop up red

I have used several other applications, and I am disappointed in the star walk 2 free version. Every time I try to learn about a planet or star, I get bombarded with advertisements. It is impossible to learn anything with this application. Also there seems to be a bug where I cannot turn off the shiny outlines of the constellations. There is a toggle in the preferences which does not seem to work. Clunky software

App Won’t Work
by JMoore501 on 2019/01/04 04:45
I have an iPhone 7 and the app recently stopped working. It was great when it worked during the first couple weeks I had it, but suddenly it won’t open past the title screen and goes to black. I deleted, reinstalled and then it locked on the location setup screen followed by the same ol’ thing when I restarted (locked on title screen). It’s a real shame because this was quickly becoming a favorite, but I’ll be moving on if a fix doesn’t come about shortly.
Does not work
by costipated on 2019/01/03 23:06
I live in Miami. This app does not open. I’ve deleted and added multiple times. I tried manually putting in my location. Each time , It freezes. When I try auto locate, It says unable to find location. I have a strong LTE signal ,and go back and forth with WiFi. No luck.

App doesn’t work
by clinton4president on 2018/12/28 01:04
Free version won’t run even tho it is compatible with my phone and I have plenty of space. The app will show the Star Walk 2 title and then goes to a black screen after that with 3 page dots at the bottom of the screen. If left there the app will crash and from that point on will only stay on the title screen unless it is deleted and re downloaded then it acts as aforementioned. Tried downloading it on my moms phone and same issue.

This is awesome
by Sileced on 2018/12/26 05:50
I really liked it because I often stargaze when I have nothing to do at night with my telescope. Alongside my telescope, I also use this app to coordinate where I’m aiming my telescope and it’s cool to know what star I’m looking at as well as how far from earth it is in light years, also considering at how old the light from that star is projecting (i.e a star 157 light years away tells me I’m looking at a star that has current light 157 years ago. It can be kind of complicated for people who don’t know what I’m talking about.) but the only annoying thing is that every time I close a star to look at a new, it gives an ad. This is okay with me, so long it isn’t excessive. But I do tend to mute the ad so it doesn’t ruin my peaceful experience with the already beautiful soundtrack. But I’d totally recommend this app to anyone who is a stargazer like me.
Looks nice, but I don’t get accurate location of the stars

Ads ruin app- do NOT get
by k.borras on 2018/12/16 18:52
I’ve read the reviews but thought I’d check it out to see what’s what- and no, this app unusable and worthless for its intended purpose. All it is is a “sucker” app, hoping people that wanna use it right and get something from it get so mad by the adds they pay the money just to not deal with it- made more obvious by the robotic response from the app developers when anyone mentions this in the reviews. Ya, we get that we are getting the free version so have to deal with adds, but the frequency of the adds makes the app a waste of space on your phone and they lose a significant amount of people from irritation that aren’t gonna buy the add free version out of spite. The developers need to have a FUNCTIONING free version that shows people they could get MORE from a paid version NOT just a lack of irritants.

by genxorsn on 2018/12/16 18:31

Love it!!
by 5strong on 2018/12/16 11:30
I love this app! As a person who is really interested in astrology and is curious, I find this app really cool and helpful if you’re into that stuff. You can see all the constellations up around you. Though it can work on just tiny bit of accuracy, but it’s not that big of a deal since everything is set in place👍🏼
Good app

Doesn’t track Orbital Reflector
by BeatsDaily on 2018/12/11 04:37
I downloaded this app to track the Orbital Reflector and this feature definitely doesn’t work. It will display it rising in the southern sky and then setting in the northern sky 3 minutes later. I’ve tried on multiple nights to view it. If you leave the app open for too long the tracking looses function. So instead, I’ll close the app, refresh it, and it shows the object in a completely different place in the sky. There’s no way it traveled across the night sky in 3 minutes. What a crappy app! I was told this is the app to use in order to view this object, but obviously this feature does not work at all. What a bummer!!

I love this app, However, recently all deep space objects have disappeared. I have bought all bundles and it says that deep space objects are installed - yet when I look up any nebula, galaxy, etc - when I zoom in it just shows a dot rather than the whole color image. Is this a glitch?

Exactly what I wanted plus some
by Carylynn75 on 2018/07/19 10:38
I think the free version of this app is great, so awesome that even though the free version has all that I needed to know (we had mars hanging in the eastern sky and Jupiter in the West every night for the last month), I’m considering just upgrading because the information about the stars and planets is so much fun for all of us. Even driving down the highway, without internet service, the calibration to my phones compass kept everything where it was suppose to be. I was concerned after I read the first review that I wouldn’t be able to find the information we were asking ourselves all month due to adds, but up until I used a notification about the international space station rising to open the app I hadn’t seen an add at all, except for when I would click on some planets and stars for more information when I would get a suggestion to upgrade for the extra planet information. Very cool app.
This is awesome
by Sileced on 2018/12/26 05:50
I really liked it because I often stargaze when I have nothing to do at night with my telescope. Alongside my telescope, I also use this app to coordinate where I’m aiming my telescope and it’s cool to know what star I’m looking at as well as how far from earth it is in light years, also considering at how old the light from that star is projecting (i.e a star 157 light years away tells me I’m looking at a star that has current light 157 years ago. It can be kind of complicated for people who don’t know what I’m talking about.) but the only annoying thing is that every time I close a star to look at a new, it gives an ad. This is okay with me, so long it isn’t excessive. But I do tend to mute the ad so it doesn’t ruin my peaceful experience with the already beautiful soundtrack. But I’d totally recommend this app to anyone who is a stargazer like me.
OULD BE a Great app, but in-app purchases don’t go to a new phone 😡
by Angeleyes715 on 2018/09/01 20:44
I loved using the app, but I got tired of the ads. I purchased the whole she-bang in app bundle and was very happy. I would think that since I’m signed in to the same iTunes account I was on my last phone, it would carry my in-app purchase. I was angry when I found it didn’t. Now I’m stuck with ads again. Even when I hit the “restore” button, nothing happens. I mean nothing. I could push it a hundred times and nothing. Would be 5 stars without this issue. UPDATE: After contacting the company as they requested, several emails back and forth later, they asked me to send proof that I made an in app purchase. I had to dig but found n email from Christmas time 2 years go. I sent them the screenshot in an email, offered to FW the actual email, and that’s when I stopped hearing back from them. This is unbelievable. This is the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Very disappointed.
ads
by WeGoPro on 2018/10/19 09:36
You did not read my comment. My version of starwalk 2 was not useable. ads disabled the app... I guess you designed that feature as well? Confusing. I did revert to your previous version which is also free and deleted the current version we are discussing. "We are sorry that ads spoil your impression of the app. We appreciate our users and created 2 versions (free ad-supported and paid with no ads) of Star Walk 2 to give them the opportunity to try the app without paying for it. A lot of users enjoy the free version regardless of advertising. Having a choice between the paid and free but ad-supported version is better than not even being able to try the app without purchasing it... Hope you understand." cant attempt to test it, ads kill the app... thank you for the response. I do understand it is free and “ad supported”... but that is misleading. It is more like the app supports the ads. You dont have to annoy people into buying your real version... simple ignorant (ignorant... not stupid) responses such as the one you provided, they simply make us hold the app and press “x”. You should delete this rating, because others will see where I am coming from. Thanks for the response and the app. I will find another.
Amazing!!!
by authenticallyme1217 on 2018/09/23 12:22
I’ve always been into star/planet gazing. After searching for a good app on my phone to learn more about space, I cam across this app. A-MAZING!! I started out with the free app, but quickly purchased the app to get the full scope. Oh goodness, we’ve enjoyed Mars, Venus, Saturn, and Jupiter for the past month right in our backyard! The information this app provides is so helpful to us novice stargazers. I even look forward to the notifications to learn even more. This app has been so helpful to my 5yr old to learn about planets and stars- she’s always ready to go outside and discover more. Thank you for such an amazing app!!
Worth it
by ireallylikethesestars on 2018/07/29 16:41
This is the best star app I have ever seen. You can scroll around the sky manually or tilt your phone to show the position of the stars and even the sun and moon. You can also change the level of “light pollution” to see more or less stars. Tapping on a celestial body yields more information (this is the part where you get ads- Mostly banners.) The planets also show up! Even the fabled planet 9 makes an appearance (no, not pluto :( ) constellations and stars are named, and are traced out as you look at them. An unobtrusive picture of what the constellation “looks” like also appears. This is so useful!!!
Ads ruin app- do NOT get
by k.borras on 2018/12/16 18:52
I’ve read the reviews but thought I’d check it out to see what’s what- and no, this app unusable and worthless for its intended purpose. All it is is a “sucker” app, hoping people that wanna use it right and get something from it get so mad by the adds they pay the money just to not deal with it- made more obvious by the robotic response from the app developers when anyone mentions this in the reviews. Ya, we get that we are getting the free version so have to deal with adds, but the frequency of the adds makes the app a waste of space on your phone and they lose a significant amount of people from irritation that aren’t gonna buy the add free version out of spite. The developers need to have a FUNCTIONING free version that shows people they could get MORE from a paid version NOT just a lack of irritants.
Doesn’t track Orbital Reflector
by BeatsDaily on 2018/12/11 04:37
I downloaded this app to track the Orbital Reflector and this feature definitely doesn’t work. It will display it rising in the southern sky and then setting in the northern sky 3 minutes later. I’ve tried on multiple nights to view it. If you leave the app open for too long the tracking looses function. So instead, I’ll close the app, refresh it, and it shows the object in a completely different place in the sky. There’s no way it traveled across the night sky in 3 minutes. What a crappy app! I was told this is the app to use in order to view this object, but obviously this feature does not work at all. What a bummer!!
Can’t even test it with the excessive ads
by Kyle14532 on 2017/11/10 15:00
I want to try this app before I buy the full version, but seemingly every few seconds an add takes up the screen. I can’t even view the stars due to this. Please change this - update: The only apparent fix by the developer is “if you don’t like the ads pay for no ads”. Well, I actually want to see if it’s worth my money before I purchase an app, which is not possible with the excessive ads. The developer knows this problem, however they only care about your money, and not satisfaction. Please download other versions that are not money pits. I will change my review if I see this problem fixed.
Ads Make Free Version Unusable
by faineoller on 2018/07/26 04:48
Constant interruptions with ads taking up more than half the screen and Special Offer badges you can’t dismiss make using free version annoying and amounts to coercion to purchase. How is one to know whether the App is useful and enjoyable or not with the frustration from pitches to buy and large screen disabling ads? I finally closed the App and will probably delete. A better way to win a new user would be to allow full featured use for a limited time, after that time expires, you can buy or use free with ads. Frustration and heavy-handed marketing pitches to upgrade does not a potential happy customer make.
Too many ads
by hilllsd on 2019/01/26 19:00
When I first download the app was hardly any interruptions. Then weeks after loading this app I was going over my file manager and notice multiple Star Walk 2 material download on my phone that I didn’t do. This was the best, it definitely changed. Too many ads with nothing to do with astrology. Once others hacked and discovered discovered the app I was using to learn the constellations and making amazing discoveries here cake the bull. So be cautious I wouldn’t recommend this app at its current stage. But outside of the consistent ads it the best app I ever downloaded
This is an amazing app!
by Paul Bartholomew on 2018/08/16 00:53
The app is well designed. I’ve always loved the stars since I was a little kid but now it has come full circle. If you’re looking for some educational fun with your children this is the perfect tool. This has been a wonderful learning experience for them. They have never been so excited to learn a new star, constellation or celestial event. I must say, it has been enlightening for myself as well.
Pretty to look at but lacks basic functions
by Hugo7000G1 on 2018/05/16 10:53
I have the full paid version with every option. It is a very beautiful interface with many features. BUT...it lacks one feature that is unacceptable for an astronomy app. The settings do not allow for Messier Object Labelling. There is no option to choose what objects you want labelled or not. Sure, you can access the side menu and select a Messier object one at a time...but to use this as a serious star chart for telescope use is futile. I also have a free app of Star Chart which had the good sense to label Messier objects like it does with the stars, and has every feature I wish this app had. Shame I paid for this one. Since developers read reviews here, I am begging you...just add a toggle switch that allows Messier objects to have labels on the map, and this would gladly change my rating to 5 star app!
Great
by puppette0205 on 2017/11/11 18:38
This is a great app, and perfect for astronomy without the fancy equipment. It does have inapp purchases, but it still works very well without them. It does have quite a bit of adds, but they're not popping up one after another. This is an overall amazing app and you can still use it during the day because obviously the stars are still there during the day.
Review: okay
by hrrixbansif on 2018/07/10 04:36
It’s okay. It’s just the fact that the adds are a little annoying, but all adds are. Also everything they do seems like they’re pushing you into getting upgraded and I find that annoying, because I don’t want to upgrade and I think if you stopped forcing it and left the app as it was it would maybe make people think “ this is cool, I want more so I’ll go to the premium, and I don’t feel pressured or forced.” See. Just a suggestion though.
Great but annoying
by macrame socks on 2019/03/17 20:10
This app works so well it’s super helpful for my astronomy class and it’s super cool. I understand that because this is the free version there are going to be ads but the ads are so annoying. Every single time you look up any constellation or change anything in settings or click on anything in the sky an ad plays and it’s just extremely annoying.
Ads take over the entire App
by MBehrouzi on 2018/07/16 04:57
This App basically can’t be used without buying ALL of the extra features. I understand the need / desire to make revenue through in-App purchases but this is excessive. Instead of purchasing the “bundle” that has all elements plus removal of ads I bought two different $1 packs - planets and constellations - specifically because I could see Venus and wanted to know more. Even after buying the planet bundle when I click on Venus in the App I get ZERO extra information about the planet, but get a full screen ad with the ability to exit either removed (specific time you have to watch the ad) or quite hidden. This is a questionable business practice, and makes using the App (even after buying the planet and constellation packs) nearly impossible. Don’t waste your time unless you want to pay the full amount for all features and ad removal.
App Won’t Work
by JMoore501 on 2019/01/04 04:45
I have an iPhone 7 and the app recently stopped working. It was great when it worked during the first couple weeks I had it, but suddenly it won’t open past the title screen and goes to black. I deleted, reinstalled and then it locked on the location setup screen followed by the same ol’ thing when I restarted (locked on title screen). It’s a real shame because this was quickly becoming a favorite, but I’ll be moving on if a fix doesn’t come about shortly.
Love it!!
by 5strong on 2018/12/16 11:30
I love this app! As a person who is really interested in astrology and is curious, I find this app really cool and helpful if you’re into that stuff. You can see all the constellations up around you. Though it can work on just tiny bit of accuracy, but it’s not that big of a deal since everything is set in place👍🏼
Shooting Stars
by None4Me123 on 2017/11/11 22:04
Also, please add a feature where you can see the constellations back in like 1000 BC and also years from now!!! That would be awesome! I love the app! Just one suggestion... can you add a feature where it shows when shooting stars are visible in the night sky? That would be most fun! And awesome!
fantastic
by Robbie vs on 2019/02/03 02:12
amazing app love looking at the full set of constellation. it would be cool to see an update where the settings allowed you to change from the standard greek names to label Egyptian constellations or of native tribes from north america, south, africa, etc. highly recommend getting if you don’t already have though!!
Ad Gimmick
by Mike110449 on 2019/01/23 04:47
The no adds version might work just fine but the free version is so full of junk adds that you feel the company is going out of its way to annoy the customer into purchasing the upgrade. I don’t mind adds but the frequency and the manner in which they appear makes the integrity of the company questionable. Company might want to look at its marketing strategy but based on the other similar reviews I don’t think they are able to get the message at this time. Looking elsewhere.
Have a question a BIG guestion
by CadenceHeart on 2018/08/21 19:25
I love this app to death! But I would like to know if we could see the satellite that was launched for the sun on “August 10” Because I would like to see it. So please make it so we could. Besides that only thing amazing app! I would like it to be added though. Great work though. Ok Byeeee!
Make the rate app pop up red
by Grimstod on 2019/01/18 20:12
There have been many times that i have been using the app and i was suddenly blinded by the rate this app pop up. It is white after all and when i have the app in red mode its a terrible annoyance. 5 stars because the rest of the app works.
It might be nice...
by XarisBaker on 2018/10/16 03:45
Seems like a great app, but I’m sick of having to hit “close ad” every time I do anything, like click on a constellation to see it better. Yes, I know “ads can easily be removed if I buy the whatchacallit pack”, but I’m not about to spend $5 on an app I can’t even properly evaluate because of the frequency of the ads. It could be a garbage app or a masterpiece and I’d never know because the free version is useless. At least the other paid sky apps are half the price and have functional free versions.
Can’t even get a proper demo
by slothrop86 on 2017/12/18 23:29
I would happily pay for this app if I could give it a proper try-out first. Anything I do puts a full-page ad up which when you’re outside (like, with the sky) with night mode enabled definitely makes you want to delete the app right away, which I did, and then leave this review, which I’m now doing. Please make the free version less annoying because I would love to give it another try. Until then this is deleted and Star Walk 1 will work fine.
Star walker 2
by mitchiemouse on 2018/07/08 00:01
Can’t wait to tryout this app tonight!!! The app without the upgrade leaves something to be desired but;the live stars with the app applied is amazing!!! Tech team; looking forward for better user friendly upgrades—-keep working on it!!! I think you have a wonderful app; keep it up!!! Yeah team; for the novice it’s wonderful!!!
Too many ads and restore purchase issues
by xleepsx on 2019/04/09 01:45
I have an older version of the original star walk on my iPad and there are NO ads and there never were any ads. I tried to restore my purchases and it would not allow me to, saying that I had never purchased to get rid of ads, even though there were originally were no ads. Overall very confused and disappointed.
The great Ursa bears.... outlining images???
by De L'Humain on 2018/03/14 16:01
The image outlines for Ursa Minor and Majorie are both displayed mirrored. I don’t know if this app is using the Greek mythology or some other terrestrial mythology for there basis for the outlining images, but I believe they are all pretty much the same. Please forgive me if I’m just overlooking a setting within the app.
Star walk 2 paid for version
by David Arthur Webster on 2019/04/20 20:40
The paid for version no ads right people? Wrong, I bought the full package because I felt it would be useful. Every holiday or whenever they feel like it non stop ads back to back!! DO NOT BUY they lie they will keep shooting ads until you’ve purchased every product. They separate the product pieces too earn more money. Its a complete rip off free one is the one to use. I want my money back myself, absolutely worst purchase ever! Ads are still coming no refund. This is example of pure greed! You know if someone that wants your dang products they would look for them! Pushing products annoys people and only the true brain washed couch potato will fell for your nonsense
Notifications
by Rovert9790 on 2019/04/10 01:58
I love the app. I use it every night. My only issue is I constantly receive notifications but there’s never any notifications in the app or my email. All my notifications are on. Where do they go?
App doesn’t work
by clinton4president on 2018/12/28 01:04
Free version won’t run even tho it is compatible with my phone and I have plenty of space. The app will show the Star Walk 2 title and then goes to a black screen after that with 3 page dots at the bottom of the screen. If left there the app will crash and from that point on will only stay on the title screen unless it is deleted and re downloaded then it acts as aforementioned. Tried downloading it on my moms phone and same issue.
Kinda good
by Bailyn Hall on 2018/03/24 23:37
It is the best stargazing app BUT I purchased the app on my old phone that I no longer use and I had a account and I logged in and I did not have the bundle! ( before I did it on my other old old phone and it worked) please respond
Love this app - but my deep space objects are not showing
by BettyttA on 2018/12/03 03:48
I love this app, However, recently all deep space objects have disappeared. I have bought all bundles and it says that deep space objects are installed - yet when I look up any nebula, galaxy, etc - when I zoom in it just shows a dot rather than the whole color image. Is this a glitch?
Best Star Mapping
by 7flutterbys on 2018/08/30 09:17
Best star mapping app I have seen. When I can’t sleep, I can go for a Star Walk, even if it is cloudy, to find where the stars are at! I can even “see” thru the earth to the other side to get a complete picture of my world! Thanks Star Walk!!!
Awesome Free App
by jenhenco on 2018/06/19 01:05
Great app for star gazers. So many times a new “star” shows up in the night sky and this app always helps me figure out what it is. I like be that you can click on a star that your looking at and get information about it!
Review of Starwalk
by SpaceBear7 on 2019/05/11 19:52
Star walk is a great and straightforward app to use for all types of stargazers. I love it in particular for its quick accessibility, and it keeps me informed about what’s happening in the night sky. Even though there are frequent adds, this app is overall extremely helpful.
Concan, TX
by canjunlady on 2018/09/02 18:15
We were all sitting outside and the kids were playing. Adults were just sitting around drinking and someone mentioned this app. Everyone enjoyed looking at the stars and figuring out what was what. We were all mesmerized.
Fun and Educational !
by MemeSheryl8 on 2018/09/02 22:23
Our entire family enjoys using this app and we have learned so much. It has really helped us use our Celestron telescope much more effectively. Well worth the price for the ad free version and upgrades.
Too many ads
by mastertim94 on 2017/09/29 12:56
I understand that this is the free version of that app and that ads are something that is stated that will be in the app but this is a little excessive. About every 10 seconds there is an ad that takes over your screen. I was interested in trying out the app and if I liked it I would buy the ad free option but I can't really even test it with the amount of ads that are there.
To many adds
by Slipeloi on 2019/02/06 04:48
I understand free with adds, but having adds almost every time you zoom in click on anything. Then one right after each other, in less than a minute had 6 adds that’s a little much. With out the abundance of adds the app does do what’s stated.
Star Walk 2
by genxorsn on 2018/12/16 18:31
This app is great! I love that you are able to find constellations in your area and learn about them too! I definitely recommend this app for anyone who likes learn about astronomy and likes to stargaze!
Awesome!
by 7turtles on 2018/04/08 22:09
I am into astronomy and astrophysics. When I was introduced to this app, I was awed. I never knew how many constellations there are! This app teaches you a lot about how constellations work and the distance between earth and these stars and the planets. Awesome app, educational and professionally executed.
Good
by bigmaddenman on 2018/11/25 22:47
I really like this app the thing is that every once in a while you will tap on something and then a pop up ad will show and it’s the same one every time😤😣
I love the universe
by spiritofshiloh on 2018/07/22 04:41
This app is awesome. Since I am on a fixed income I am pleased to get this app free. Thank you. When I am in bed at night I can still watch the universe and its many wonders and beauty while in the dark. The music is awesome and fits the stars, planets & universe.⭐️🌙💫🌟⭐️🌙🌙💫
Fun and easy
by Jazz O'Brian on 2019/03/16 06:18
This has been a delight to use as our guide to assist us in using our telescopes. there are many features that help the sky watching amateur. And tidbits of information on the consolations planets and sky happenings. Thanks this was just what we were looking for.
Great app all in all
by Masamunz on 2018/09/25 02:41
Great app! You get ads on the free version but it's still amazing! I haven't paid yet but there are lots of cool features it provides. Free version has a option for constellations with and without art.
Ads come up way too often
by tisnewtome on 2018/07/31 06:03
I’m ok with seeing ads but not nearly every time I touch a star or planet or button. I don’t know if it’s worth the money to buy the ad free version and I’m just trying to learn how the app works and it’s impossible to get the feel for it when I’m interrupted by the pop up ad every touch. And it’s the same ad that comes up every time which makes it even more annoying.
