Winner of Apple Design Award 2010*** “star walk is a remarkably in-depth and detailed astronomy app. There's so much you can do with this app” - Common sense media “star walk is the best stargazing application I have come across for the iPhone. Many of the features found within the application cannot be found in any others! This is one of the best developed and executed applications I have seen to hit the app store.” - iMore “This app brings the old paper star chart into the smartphone age, and makes exploring the night sky easily accessible to everyone.” - Soggy Astronomer Duran Duran's keyboard Nick Rhodes mentions star walk as his favourite app: “It’s brilliant, and if you’re ever somewhere with a clear sky and no light pollution, it’s a revelation. It’s beautifully designed and makes clever use of the available technology. I’m fascinated by astronomy, but even if you’re not, give this a go.” Key features: • Night sky map with thousands of stars, constellations and other sky objects. • Real-time tracking of celestial bodies. • Augmented reality sky view. • Deep sky objects to explore in detail. • Night mode. • Extensive information about all sky objects. • The ability to travel in time with “Time machine” • Astronomical calendar with various celestial events. • Stunning space pictures in “Picture of the Day”. • “Sky Live” section with info about the moon phases, the amount of daylight, the visibility of the planets, etc. Astronomical calendar, deep space objects, meteor showers, dwarf planets, asteroids, comets, and satellites are available through the star walk PLUS subscription. ‣ Launch the app and point your device at the night sky - you'll see the stars, planets, satellites, and constellations in their proper place from your location. As you move your device, the star map updates in real time.* ‣ Every object you tap has an (i) next to its name, tap it to access some information. ‣ A scale on right is the “Time machine”, slide it to explore the map of the night sky of tomorrow or years ago. ‣ A calendar of celestial events will make sure you never miss anything interesting. ‣ Tap Augmented Reality icon in the upper right corner to add the image from your camera to your sky view. ‣ Use Night Mode to go easy on your eyes and preserve night vision when exploring the Universe. ‣ star walk is your personal planetarium.

9 Years Later, Still My Favorite App!
by Moto57932 on 2019/05/19 01:56
I have been using this app for 9 years now, well worth the money! Even in more remote locations, the app has no trouble knowing where you are and pivoting based on where you aim your phone. Hands down, my favorite app I have ever paid for!
Overwhelmed by ads
by Logic2012 on 2019/05/18 08:09
Simply zooming in on a star causes ads to take over. Unacceptable.

Great app, as a stargazer I am always watching the night sky, when I reach for my phone and start the app, I am like a kid again, and the space music in the background literally take me to a far place as I learn all about what I never about the heavenly bodies above and around me.

What time is it ?
by deb4sw on 2019/03/22 10:16
I paid for Star Walk many moons ago and still cannot use it very well because it assumes that I am an Astrophysicist. However, my moon-sized complaint is this : It doesn’t do me any good to receive notices at 11pm ! Does anyone else have this issue ?
Yes

Another Subscription App
by @Sigil on 2019/02/23 21:24
Well, I just noticed that the app that I paid for years ago has gone subscription. This is one of those apps that you use 2-10 times a year, which is why I missed the changes. The subscription should be for new users or new features.

by Mememe123abcwhatever on 2019/02/23 05:46
I have had this program since it was a free code on a Starbucks giveaway card in the late 2000’s. I LOVE this app/program!!! Having used it for nearly a decade, I can safely say that it would have been worth $100+ due to my usage. This is a wonderful way to enjoy and explore the night sky. Some of my fondest memories are with my father and a telescope in the field at night. If we had this gift at our fingertips back then, I doubt I would have slept.
Need to figure out how to use it. The stars don’t move around when I move the phone
by Ben without a nickname on 2019/02/23 04:09
When I hold the phone up to look at the stars and then move the phone around the stores don’t move. I must be doing something wrong

Still have the original version and love it
by Margaret CA on 2019/01/24 06:06
I've had this app for years on my old iPad. In fact it's so old that it no longer updates thus I still have the original version. I think it's a shame that they have changed it and from some of the most recent reviews I'm reading I may lament the death of this iPad someday. But for now I'm happy
Not user friendly
by Mufdecablo on 2019/01/22 10:13
It always takes a long time to get the app started. I don’t know if it’s trying to acquire satellite feed or what but sometimes I want to know what a Star is I’m looking at and I start the app and then I get frustrated waiting for the app to start.

It’s Not Free

I wanted a free star finder/planetarium app that would track with my phone orientation. When I opened it and tried to do anything, up popped a page asking me to subscribe for $1 per month. I would have endured the ads, but all I kept seeing was that annoying pop up. A waste of my time.

I love all the star walk apps, but this is by far the best one. Star walk 2 makes you purchase supernovas, satellites, planet extensions and more annoying things. But this one is good because you don’t have to buy anything! Love,love,LOVE the app!!! Please add more things to this app, because a very old satellite has reached the edge of our galaxy.
Needs update?

Let’s take away features and demand money
by PaulC72 on 2018/12/13 07:13
Star walk has been my favorite app for years, and has an amazing database of celestial objects. I was very dismayed and disappointed to learn that one of the recent updates removed most of these items, and simply labels them deep space object instead directing you to subscribe on a monthly basis and pay for what was previously free. This is an unfortunate trend with apps to go to a subscription model. Although I commend the app developers for a reasonably priced subscription, a one time fee would be quite preferable. In addition, I learned that I had to subscribe to view most of these objects when out of range of a cellular signal while camping, so it’s not like I could subscribe at that time.

by SuperSayin' on 2018/10/28 18:57
Yeah, to view the same thing I previously viewed for years (back when I loved the app), I now have to pay a subscription. All because my phone auto updated the app. Now everything besides stars are considered far earth and behind a pay wall. Same for some features I had access to. I just want my original product back. I never got a response from customer support. Edit: I did contact support. I will try again and update my review.

Cool app but freezes constantly
by fast4est on 2018/10/15 03:26
I’ve had this app for a few years on iPhone 5, 6 and X and the app has always locked up soon as the screen is touched. Once I touch the screen it will no longer track the sky, just a stuck image that I can move with my finger which isn’t very helpful learning the sky. I like the app but very annoyed that I can’t use it to its potential. Am I the only user who has had this issue? 3 phones, few years and updates and still same problem

I use to love this app but it doesn’t work anymore. It gets frozen and stuck that you can’t even exit out of it! I really wish you guys would fix it or adjust to work with newer phones. Worked great with my iPhone 6 but it’s been years now and app doesn’t seem to work well with more advanced operating systems.
How many times must I pay for this app🤑
by NathalieEsp on 2018/09/04 14:03
I paid $10 for this app when I first got it a few years ago now I tried to use it this weekend and it started trying to get me to pay again I think I’m about ready to delete it because I’m not gonna get ripped off and be forced to pay twice!
Too difficult to read
by hanotehu on 2017/11/16 01:54
Maybe it’s a bad setting or something but I find the data in the app very hard to read. When I first got the app several years ago it was fine but it keeps getting “prettier” and less useful. For one thing, object labels are missing if they are near the edge of the screen. As you get them closer to the center their labels show up as an unreadable gray. Finally, when they are almost in the center they are in a tiny but somewhat readable white font. Why aren’t they white all the time? If you’re using the app to try and find something you have to center the thing first. That’s hard to do if you don’t know where it is. Another hard thing to see is the horizon. It’s very subtly darker than the sky. Why not make it better defined? The planets are hard to find too. The pretty icons on the map can help but the red text is too dark against the black background. Things near the galactic equator are hard because the Milky Way image is much too bright. Finally, the new moon is shown as black. OK, it really is but if you’re trying to find it, good luck. If you center where this invisible object is, of course, then you may be able to spot the tiny white label. It would hurt the prettiness, I guess, but I’d love to see a white outline on it. Finally, this is the slowest app I have when I start it. It has pretty little animations of its name for a good 10 seconds. I didn’t get it for that. Basically it sacrifices utility for aesthetics.
So disappointed.
by Loriofpandora on 2018/08/13 05:46
I have owned this app for years. Paid the full price for it, 9.99 (at the time really expensive... pretty pricy even now!) I used it seriously three or four times a year for the last 5 years planning camping trips to coincide with cool astronomy events like the total solar eclipse and all sorts of meteor showers. I loved it. Raved about it to my friends. Even showed it off to my dad. It is a part of my start screen and I pulled it out every camping trip. Imagine my disappointment, upon opening it so it can enhance my viewing of the perseid meteor shower, which I am camping for, right now, this very evening and none of the previously available features are available to me unless I pony up MORE money for a subscription service. I am really upset. Farewell, Star Walk. You were a beautifully designed and useful app once. I’m sure you still are beautiful...You enhanced my love for the stars. I guess my wallet is just not large enough to follow you down that subscription rabbit hole. I am so sad.
5yrs later and I still love this app
by Rip Roaring Raft Guide on 2017/07/31 11:04
My favorite part is if you get to far out with no service (always the best stars) IT STILL WORKS! We camp for 2wks every summer up in the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming and there is no hope of service until off of them, but this app is a camping party favorite EVERY year not to mention It is all I ever wanted growing up! As a teen I saved my mowing money for a cordless phone (pre-cellphone era) and would lay in our pasture for hours and hours all summer long with my glow in the dark constellation coffee table book and Gf on the phone, now I can just hold up my phone and know my stellar address, neighbors and man made junk, I will never look at the stars the same 10/10
Love this app.
by Lace1122 on 2017/06/10 03:06
I wish I could afford a big fancy telescope to truly show me the detail of our night sky.. until then this app is helping me learn placement in time of the night sky around me and for that, I am thankful. I can look at a constellation, pick a star and learn all about it. I can also see satellites. I think this app is a wonderful learning tool for anyone interested in our galaxy and learning what's around you. Even if you have a telescope I think it would be a great asset to locate and identify what you are looking at. It is very informational.

Real handy
by B747p on 2017/05/15 04:02
Since Starwalk knows the observer position, it gives altitude and azimuth of an object which is nice when used with my computerized telescope. I like the red colored feature which is great at night. I wished the horizon was more delineated and the zenith as well. I also wished it had a way to adjust the intensity of the stars to match their magnitude when outside ambient lights make fainter stars less visible. Overall it's a great app, especially when used with my telescope.
Really useful app for enjoying the night sky
by Shuttled CFI on 2018/06/27 00:22
I highly recommend giving this app a try for hours of entertainment identifying stars, constellations, and objects in the night sky. It’s easy to use with intuitive functions. The information links bring the planets and Celestial events to life with fascinating knowledge. Once you become comfortable using the basics try all the features and you will be very satisfied with this very cool useful tool.
Glitchy
by libbysunshine on 2017/11/26 05:54
I used to love this app so much, but recently I've been having issues with the gps on the app where it thinks that I'm facing a different direction than I am. For example, I'll clearly see the moon in front of me and it will show it as being behind me or off to the left. Just now I was trying to use it and it seems to think that I'm facing south even though I'm facing north east. I'm sure that there's a way to trouble shoot, but I wish the app was easier to use for me to be able to do this without having to search without success.
Forced monthly fees for same product I bought years ago.
by SuperSayin' on 2018/10/28 18:57
Yeah, to view the same thing I previously viewed for years (back when I loved the app), I now have to pay a subscription. All because my phone auto updated the app. Now everything besides stars are considered far earth and behind a pay wall. Same for some features I had access to. I just want my original product back. I never got a response from customer support. Edit: I did contact support. I will try again and update my review.
Still have the original version and love it
by Margaret CA on 2019/01/24 06:06
I've had this app for years on my old iPad. In fact it's so old that it no longer updates thus I still have the original version. I think it's a shame that they have changed it and from some of the most recent reviews I'm reading I may lament the death of this iPad someday. But for now I'm happy
Long time user, long time fan
by Leknyc on 2017/06/13 21:18
This app is really wonderful. It's easy to use and is great on a clear night to see what's going on in the sky that night. I use it to help my young daughter learn about the stars and planets, as well as for my own enjoyment. I pulled it out while visiting my parents and now my mother has installed the app too. Highly recommend.
Do Not Buy SW 2
by Radar30 on 2018/08/16 01:34
Star Walk is hands down one of the most fun apps out there. I am sad I wasted my money upgrading to SW2. The new version withdrew satellites and a number of other features only to request more money for viewing. I would have happily paid upfront $5, if the app makers had been forthcoming of the removal of original information/features.
Cool app but freezes constantly
by fast4est on 2018/10/15 03:26
I’ve had this app for a few years on iPhone 5, 6 and X and the app has always locked up soon as the screen is touched. Once I touch the screen it will no longer track the sky, just a stuck image that I can move with my finger which isn’t very helpful learning the sky. I like the app but very annoyed that I can’t use it to its potential. Am I the only user who has had this issue? 3 phones, few years and updates and still same problem
Ok I'll rate you again lol...
by MtnDave on 2017/05/04 09:12
So I've been loving this app for over 5 years now I think and it's always asking me to rate it. So here's yet another 5 stars and review from me. What can I say? I've familiarized myself so well with the cosmos that I can conduct astronomy talks in the hot tub whenever anyone is visiting. A glass of wine and the steam embracing Cygnus and Aguila during the cool summer nights...thanks starwalk!
Love this app for little learners and adult wanderers
by Angelshock on 2018/09/17 20:27
My friend Robin suggested I get this app for my son who is interested in space. I’ve had it for years, and while he has outgrown it I continue to marvel all the things it has taught me over the years. Such a wonderful bit of technology that lets you travel the heavens without leaving the ground.
Incredible!!
by Patrishuhh on 2017/12/30 08:01
I absolutely love everything about this app! How you can change the background to the background you're actually looking at, how it tells you the phases of the moon and conjunctions of the planets, how it will even alert you to look out for meteor showers!! So many cool features and I love how it works offline too!
Perfect for Family Gazing
by DrugSaver1 on 2017/06/21 12:46
I have been using this app off and on for 4 years now with my family and TL Troop. I am no expert on the heavens. However, this app not only makes it easy to gaze intelligently anywhere (even thru the earth) but it also helps you not miss upcoming celestial events that my family and Troop really enjoy. Great app!!
One of the first Apps I installed when I got my first iPhone.
by Gswckf on 2018/08/17 03:33
One of the first Apps I installed on my phone. I have had nothing but fun family time and educational experiences with my daughter, and son when I use Starwalk. It’s a great resource to use anywhere at anytime. It shows gazing at the stars and planets in a whole new way!
All the worlds at my fingertips
by Questionmark2116 on 2019/04/07 16:45
Great app, as a stargazer I am always watching the night sky, when I reach for my phone and start the app, I am like a kid again, and the space music in the background literally take me to a far place as I learn all about what I never about the heavenly bodies above and around me.
Cool app!!!
by kindle emoji on 2018/12/20 23:20
I love all the star walk apps, but this is by far the best one. Star walk 2 makes you purchase supernovas, satellites, planet extensions and more annoying things. But this one is good because you don’t have to buy anything! Love,love,LOVE the app!!! Please add more things to this app, because a very old satellite has reached the edge of our galaxy.
Top 3 apps on my phone
by Narragansett Ave on 2018/08/11 03:07
I love this app. It’s my go to when I’m trying to point out objects in the sky to my daughter but I’m not entirely sure which object I’m looking at. The app does way more than what I use it for but the features I use are well worth whatever I paid for the app. Absolutely perfect rating.
Headache
by Lola's ipod on 2017/09/25 11:21
This is the third device I have automatically gotten that has put things upside down, and in some cases backwards. In my area Cassiopeia usually starts in the north Western sky and finishes in the eastern. On this app that is reversed. If you find the North Star and turn right until you find Orion you should be looking east or south east. This app says you are now facing west and the constellation is at or below the horizon not below as the app states. If you don’t mind the app being upside down and backwards it’s great.
Icon is upside down
by Alexrandall5 on 2017/04/25 12:30
Great app. Love it. But I note that the app icon shows Ursa Minor with the "handle" coming off the wrong star. A Minor unnamed star highlighted. The one with the highlight is not Polaris or Kahob. The icon is not Ursa Major either. That never gets into the position shown. So the icon is a make believe constellation. Pretty Weird icon for a great app
9 Years Later, Still My Favorite App!
by Moto57932 on 2019/05/19 01:56
I have been using this app for 9 years now, well worth the money! Even in more remote locations, the app has no trouble knowing where you are and pivoting based on where you aim your phone. Hands down, my favorite app I have ever paid for!
One if the first apps I ever bought
by MyNadsStayCool on 2017/12/21 07:17
Still great and only gets better. I bought this when it first came out. It was miles ahead of any other app at that time and it still is one of the most polished apps you can buy today. Santa is making his rounds!
Please STOP spamming popup ads
by BigBlock409 on 2018/08/27 00:47
This used to be my favorite app for years but now it seems like every time I open it there’s a shady looking popup on the screen. This latest one was titled “Back2School Promo” with some vague description and unintuitive button choices. This seriously looks like malware or a phishing scam. Please 1) confirm this app has not been compromised and 2) stop this ridiculous advertising. Update: I’m sorry but your canned reply did not address these concerns at all. Uninstalling and no longer recommending this app to anyone.
Lost app
by 19RS50 on 2019/01/10 15:20
I purchased your app a while back. Changed my Apple ID. Forgot the password. Deleted the app to reinstall and found out you now have a subscription service. Can you help me with this as I already purchased the full ap while back? Thank you
I like it but
by Yoda30 on 2018/08/13 22:26
I really want to like this app but I can’t seem to figure out how to properly use it. Since you asked… when I get a notification about an event say a meteor shower, I will go to the app and see if there is more information and there isn’t. So why tell me if you’re not going to offer more information. Like how best to view it. Or at least a link to somewhere that has that information. The sky mirroring is good. But it seems that is all your app does. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Meh
by Dave in Argo on 2018/08/26 12:22
The view doesn’t move as I point my device in different directions. #1 reason why I deleted the app about 2 minutes after installing it. It’s a map. You have to know which direction N, E, S, and W is to use it, which isn’t that bad, but it makes it useless to someone who isn’t good at figuring that out when they are in an unfamiliar place. Not a fan.
Nice app! Pretty intuitive and user friendly.
by Lostbackpacker1967 on 2018/05/06 11:37
I love the "info (i)" function as I'm constantly learning something new! The one thing that would make it perfect is to be able to select/refresh the ephemerides of popular bright satellites like ISS and Aqua so that we can try to hunt for them. If there was a comprehensive add-on, I'd buy it!
Love this App
by kostelacj on 2017/04/01 14:09
As an amateur astronomer (10" Dob., 8" SCT) I love this application. My scopes don't have GPS or Computers of any sort. The SCT has its clockdrive for photography and the Dob. has my less and less steady hand, but with care and this App. I find what I like to see at the beach (and in the night sky, too). Thanks for the good work. John
Awesome app
by upper holter on 2017/08/07 15:56
We have it on our iPhones and iPads for all our travels over the past few years and all updates have been seamless. It has an incredible database in situ, so if no internet connection available no problem.
Spotting Mars and genesis 1. Our moon is so bright tonight it looks less than 100 yards away.
by paintergurl on 2018/06/30 09:25
This is the best and favorite for my needs. Especially on a warm clear night on my deck to be sure I can identify every thing I can see as well as not see with my bare eyes. *****
Excellent app for any star gazer
by PVandamm on 2017/07/08 01:11
We enjoy this app because of all the functionality. It anticipates your needs and is very easy to use. I check for planets and constellations all the time. This app gets us out of the house and watching the skies all the time.
Great App
by Techniq on 2017/03/29 01:53
I use this app almost every clear night. I like this much better than Star Walk 2. I would gladly pay a little more on this app than for every little thing on Star Walk 2, unless I misunderstand the pay model.
Needs update?
by neuromantic on 2018/12/19 18:12
Seems very user friendly, but I am not sure the data is accurate. I got this app to help me find the 46P/Wirtanen comet but the location this app shows doesn’t match what I have seen from other sources.
Coolest star map ever!
by pirateursula on 2018/07/27 22:05
I live in Texas, and spent most of my life looking for a star map that wasn’t based on a much more northern parallel. Then two iPads ago, I found Starwalk. The app has always worked well, and I love it! So easy to identify planets and constellations in real time.
Great way to get kids into Star gazing!
by Matuarnold on 2017/11/17 05:18
Love this app! I am a MS science teacher and use this app with my students when we study astronomy. They LOVE that it helps them ID what's out there and every year I get more potential astronomers because of it! Thanks! Keep it up!
Great app
by Orange Bowl on 2017/08/06 15:30
I have used other star apps, Star Walk is far better, used for years. It's even better now since they have added more educational information and stellar events calendar.
Love it :D
by xMhillx on 2017/07/08 21:56
Have been using it for a few years now. I paid for it and can't remember how much, but it was well worth it because I enjoy using it pretty often. It's so kool to take out my phone and point it at a planet to go "yup, that is Jupiter" "or yup, that's mars/Venus/Saturn/mercury".
One of the most beautiful apps I've seen on any platform
by MistySteele on 2017/04/23 16:53
The ability to lock on to sky features and views and sweep through time by hours, days, and months is truly eye-opening.
Problems with purchasing within app
by Cool beans 6457544466 on 2018/01/01 16:44
I love the app and wanted to unlock all the features but got an unknown issue.I have restrictions turned off and am able to make purchases so nothing is wrong with my payment method. Can someone help please.
One of the best star guide maps
by 67ska67 on 2017/09/06 23:51
This is one of the best guides in Maps, with all the information you can possibly need. It also has links to Wikipedia in the web at your fingertips. Get this
I paid years ago and LOVE it!
by BillT3rd on 2017/10/21 00:07
As the title reads I paid for the app long ago. I’ve paid for similar but, this is the ONLY astrology app I download to all of my multiple devices. Nice work, to say the least, to those whom did it...!
I Love This App
by Mr. Dibbs on 2017/05/01 22:28
I've spent a lot of time with this app. Great interface, facts, etc. However as of late, the compass will freeze. I can scroll with my finger but if I move my phone - nothing. Still worth it though!
Why do we have to pay for the details?
by 5838485868286 on 2018/09/21 12:57
I want to be able to see details about asteroids, comets, etc. without having to pay. Nobody cares about deep space objects, so we can still pay for those. I want to see when meteor showers happen.
Gorgeous app!
by Esme D. on 2017/06/19 08:22
In addition to the beautiful detail and clear, concise explanations, I love the calendar. It gives dates and best times to view all celestial events, so I don't miss any that are in my viewing range. I highly recommend.
My Favorite App Ever
by Cvsilva12 on 2018/06/16 00:22
I use this app everywhere I travel. It comes in handy all the time. My daughter has grown up with this app. I love when she asks me to use Star Walk to help her identify what she sees when she looks up at the night sky.
Flat earth
by Lundy9 on 2018/02/18 18:02
I would like to see star walk to address the flat earth theory ... I think it’s only right I’ve been trusting star walk for some years now , I just think it’s a issue that should get addressed... thanks

Simply zooming in on a star causes ads to take over. Unacceptable.

What time is it ?
by deb4sw on 2019/03/22 10:16
I paid for Star Walk many moons ago and still cannot use it very well because it assumes that I am an Astrophysicist. However, my moon-sized complaint is this : It doesn’t do me any good to receive notices at 11pm ! Does anyone else have this issue ?

Another Subscription App
by @Sigil on 2019/02/23 21:24
Well, I just noticed that the app that I paid for years ago has gone subscription. This is one of those apps that you use 2-10 times a year, which is why I missed the changes. The subscription should be for new users or new features.
Astronomers and Sky Watchers
by Mememe123abcwhatever on 2019/02/23 05:46
I have had this program since it was a free code on a Starbucks giveaway card in the late 2000’s. I LOVE this app/program!!! Having used it for nearly a decade, I can safely say that it would have been worth $100+ due to my usage. This is a wonderful way to enjoy and explore the night sky. Some of my fondest memories are with my father and a telescope in the field at night. If we had this gift at our fingertips back then, I doubt I would have slept.
Need to figure out how to use it. The stars don’t move around when I move the phone

Still have the original version and love it
by Margaret CA on 2019/01/24 06:06
I've had this app for years on my old iPad. In fact it's so old that it no longer updates thus I still have the original version. I think it's a shame that they have changed it and from some of the most recent reviews I'm reading I may lament the death of this iPad someday. But for now I'm happy
Not user friendly
by Mufdecablo on 2019/01/22 10:13
It always takes a long time to get the app started. I don’t know if it’s trying to acquire satellite feed or what but sometimes I want to know what a Star is I’m looking at and I start the app and then I get frustrated waiting for the app to start.
Just a trick to get you to pay more- avoid.

It’s Not Free

I wanted a free star finder/planetarium app that would track with my phone orientation. When I opened it and tried to do anything, up popped a page asking me to subscribe for $1 per month. I would have endured the ads, but all I kept seeing was that annoying pop up. A waste of my time.

I purchased your app a while back. Changed my Apple ID. Forgot the password. Deleted the app to reinstall and found out you now have a subscription service. Can you help me with this as I already purchased the full ap while back? Thank you
Crashes on Apple Watch

I just installed this on my phone and it also installed on my Apple Watch. It crashes immediately. The previous version sort of worked. It crashed after a minute.
I wish I knew how to get full use out of this

For a novice,it’s not exactly user-friendly. and I desperately want to know how to use it properly! So I’m sad.

Cool app!!!
by kindle emoji on 2018/12/20 23:20
I love all the star walk apps, but this is by far the best one. Star walk 2 makes you purchase supernovas, satellites, planet extensions and more annoying things. But this one is good because you don’t have to buy anything! Love,love,LOVE the app!!! Please add more things to this app, because a very old satellite has reached the edge of our galaxy.
Needs update?
by neuromantic on 2018/12/19 18:12
Seems very user friendly, but I am not sure the data is accurate. I got this app to help me find the 46P/Wirtanen comet but the location this app shows doesn’t match what I have seen from other sources.

All over the news today and from several different sources my husband and I were directed where to look in the night sky and at what time to view comet P46 Wertamin. For example, on December 16 at 10:00, look at the constellation Taurus. The comet will ‘ a green ghostly looking appearance. We were outside with binoculars in hand and my tablet with Star

Let’s take away features and demand money
by PaulC72 on 2018/12/13 07:13
Star walk has been my favorite app for years, and has an amazing database of celestial objects. I was very dismayed and disappointed to learn that one of the recent updates removed most of these items, and simply labels them deep space object instead directing you to subscribe on a monthly basis and pay for what was previously free. This is an unfortunate trend with apps to go to a subscription model. Although I commend the app developers for a reasonably priced subscription, a one time fee would be quite preferable. In addition, I learned that I had to subscribe to view most of these objects when out of range of a cellular signal while camping, so it’s not like I could subscribe at that time.

Forced monthly fees for same product I bought years ago.
by SuperSayin' on 2018/10/28 18:57
Yeah, to view the same thing I previously viewed for years (back when I loved the app), I now have to pay a subscription. All because my phone auto updated the app. Now everything besides stars are considered far earth and behind a pay wall. Same for some features I had access to. I just want my original product back. I never got a response from customer support. Edit: I did contact support. I will try again and update my review.

Cool app but freezes constantly
by fast4est on 2018/10/15 03:26
I’ve had this app for a few years on iPhone 5, 6 and X and the app has always locked up soon as the screen is touched. Once I touch the screen it will no longer track the sky, just a stuck image that I can move with my finger which isn’t very helpful learning the sky. I like the app but very annoyed that I can’t use it to its potential. Am I the only user who has had this issue? 3 phones, few years and updates and still same problem

Why do we have to pay for the details?

I want to be able to see details about asteroids, comets, etc. without having to pay. Nobody cares about deep space objects, so we can still pay for those. I want to see when meteor showers happen.

I use to love this app but it doesn’t work anymore. It gets frozen and stuck that you can’t even exit out of it! I really wish you guys would fix it or adjust to work with newer phones. Worked great with my iPhone 6 but it’s been years now and app doesn’t seem to work well with more advanced operating systems.
How many times must I pay for this app🤑
by NathalieEsp on 2018/09/04 14:03
I paid $10 for this app when I first got it a few years ago now I tried to use it this weekend and it started trying to get me to pay again I think I’m about ready to delete it because I’m not gonna get ripped off and be forced to pay twice!
Too difficult to read
by hanotehu on 2017/11/16 01:54
Maybe it’s a bad setting or something but I find the data in the app very hard to read. When I first got the app several years ago it was fine but it keeps getting “prettier” and less useful. For one thing, object labels are missing if they are near the edge of the screen. As you get them closer to the center their labels show up as an unreadable gray. Finally, when they are almost in the center they are in a tiny but somewhat readable white font. Why aren’t they white all the time? If you’re using the app to try and find something you have to center the thing first. That’s hard to do if you don’t know where it is. Another hard thing to see is the horizon. It’s very subtly darker than the sky. Why not make it better defined? The planets are hard to find too. The pretty icons on the map can help but the red text is too dark against the black background. Things near the galactic equator are hard because the Milky Way image is much too bright. Finally, the new moon is shown as black. OK, it really is but if you’re trying to find it, good luck. If you center where this invisible object is, of course, then you may be able to spot the tiny white label. It would hurt the prettiness, I guess, but I’d love to see a white outline on it. Finally, this is the slowest app I have when I start it. It has pretty little animations of its name for a good 10 seconds. I didn’t get it for that. Basically it sacrifices utility for aesthetics.
So disappointed.
by Loriofpandora on 2018/08/13 05:46
I have owned this app for years. Paid the full price for it, 9.99 (at the time really expensive... pretty pricy even now!) I used it seriously three or four times a year for the last 5 years planning camping trips to coincide with cool astronomy events like the total solar eclipse and all sorts of meteor showers. I loved it. Raved about it to my friends. Even showed it off to my dad. It is a part of my start screen and I pulled it out every camping trip. Imagine my disappointment, upon opening it so it can enhance my viewing of the perseid meteor shower, which I am camping for, right now, this very evening and none of the previously available features are available to me unless I pony up MORE money for a subscription service. I am really upset. Farewell, Star Walk. You were a beautifully designed and useful app once. I’m sure you still are beautiful...You enhanced my love for the stars. I guess my wallet is just not large enough to follow you down that subscription rabbit hole. I am so sad.
5yrs later and I still love this app
by Rip Roaring Raft Guide on 2017/07/31 11:04
My favorite part is if you get to far out with no service (always the best stars) IT STILL WORKS! We camp for 2wks every summer up in the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming and there is no hope of service until off of them, but this app is a camping party favorite EVERY year not to mention It is all I ever wanted growing up! As a teen I saved my mowing money for a cordless phone (pre-cellphone era) and would lay in our pasture for hours and hours all summer long with my glow in the dark constellation coffee table book and Gf on the phone, now I can just hold up my phone and know my stellar address, neighbors and man made junk, I will never look at the stars the same 10/10
Love this app.
by Lace1122 on 2017/06/10 03:06
I wish I could afford a big fancy telescope to truly show me the detail of our night sky.. until then this app is helping me learn placement in time of the night sky around me and for that, I am thankful. I can look at a constellation, pick a star and learn all about it. I can also see satellites. I think this app is a wonderful learning tool for anyone interested in our galaxy and learning what's around you. Even if you have a telescope I think it would be a great asset to locate and identify what you are looking at. It is very informational.

Real handy
by B747p on 2017/05/15 04:02
Since Starwalk knows the observer position, it gives altitude and azimuth of an object which is nice when used with my computerized telescope. I like the red colored feature which is great at night. I wished the horizon was more delineated and the zenith as well. I also wished it had a way to adjust the intensity of the stars to match their magnitude when outside ambient lights make fainter stars less visible. Overall it's a great app, especially when used with my telescope.
Really useful app for enjoying the night sky
by Shuttled CFI on 2018/06/27 00:22
I highly recommend giving this app a try for hours of entertainment identifying stars, constellations, and objects in the night sky. It’s easy to use with intuitive functions. The information links bring the planets and Celestial events to life with fascinating knowledge. Once you become comfortable using the basics try all the features and you will be very satisfied with this very cool useful tool.
Glitchy
by libbysunshine on 2017/11/26 05:54
I used to love this app so much, but recently I've been having issues with the gps on the app where it thinks that I'm facing a different direction than I am. For example, I'll clearly see the moon in front of me and it will show it as being behind me or off to the left. Just now I was trying to use it and it seems to think that I'm facing south even though I'm facing north east. I'm sure that there's a way to trouble shoot, but I wish the app was easier to use for me to be able to do this without having to search without success.

by Margaret CA on 2019/01/24 06:06
I've had this app for years on my old iPad. In fact it's so old that it no longer updates thus I still have the original version. I think it's a shame that they have changed it and from some of the most recent reviews I'm reading I may lament the death of this iPad someday. But for now I'm happy
Long time user, long time fan
by Leknyc on 2017/06/13 21:18
This app is really wonderful. It's easy to use and is great on a clear night to see what's going on in the sky that night. I use it to help my young daughter learn about the stars and planets, as well as for my own enjoyment. I pulled it out while visiting my parents and now my mother has installed the app too. Highly recommend.
Do Not Buy SW 2
by Radar30 on 2018/08/16 01:34
Star Walk is hands down one of the most fun apps out there. I am sad I wasted my money upgrading to SW2. The new version withdrew satellites and a number of other features only to request more money for viewing. I would have happily paid upfront $5, if the app makers had been forthcoming of the removal of original information/features.

Ok I'll rate you again lol...
by MtnDave on 2017/05/04 09:12
So I've been loving this app for over 5 years now I think and it's always asking me to rate it. So here's yet another 5 stars and review from me. What can I say? I've familiarized myself so well with the cosmos that I can conduct astronomy talks in the hot tub whenever anyone is visiting. A glass of wine and the steam embracing Cygnus and Aguila during the cool summer nights...thanks starwalk!

by Patrishuhh on 2017/12/30 08:01
I absolutely love everything about this app! How you can change the background to the background you're actually looking at, how it tells you the phases of the moon and conjunctions of the planets, how it will even alert you to look out for meteor showers!! So many cool features and I love how it works offline too!
Perfect for Family Gazing
by DrugSaver1 on 2017/06/21 12:46
I have been using this app off and on for 4 years now with my family and TL Troop. I am no expert on the heavens. However, this app not only makes it easy to gaze intelligently anywhere (even thru the earth) but it also helps you not miss upcoming celestial events that my family and Troop really enjoy. Great app!!

Top 3 apps on my phone

I love this app. It’s my go to when I’m trying to point out objects in the sky to my daughter but I’m not entirely sure which object I’m looking at. The app does way more than what I use it for but the features I use are well worth whatever I paid for the app. Absolutely perfect rating.
Headache
by Lola's ipod on 2017/09/25 11:21
This is the third device I have automatically gotten that has put things upside down, and in some cases backwards. In my area Cassiopeia usually starts in the north Western sky and finishes in the eastern. On this app that is reversed. If you find the North Star and turn right until you find Orion you should be looking east or south east. This app says you are now facing west and the constellation is at or below the horizon not below as the app states. If you don’t mind the app being upside down and backwards it’s great.
Icon is upside down
by Alexrandall5 on 2017/04/25 12:30
Great app. Love it. But I note that the app icon shows Ursa Minor with the "handle" coming off the wrong star. A Minor unnamed star highlighted. The one with the highlight is not Polaris or Kahob. The icon is not Ursa Major either. That never gets into the position shown. So the icon is a make believe constellation. Pretty Weird icon for a great app
9 Years Later, Still My Favorite App!
by Moto57932 on 2019/05/19 01:56
I have been using this app for 9 years now, well worth the money! Even in more remote locations, the app has no trouble knowing where you are and pivoting based on where you aim your phone. Hands down, my favorite app I have ever paid for!
One if the first apps I ever bought
by MyNadsStayCool on 2017/12/21 07:17
Still great and only gets better. I bought this when it first came out. It was miles ahead of any other app at that time and it still is one of the most polished apps you can buy today. Santa is making his rounds!
Please STOP spamming popup ads
by BigBlock409 on 2018/08/27 00:47
This used to be my favorite app for years but now it seems like every time I open it there’s a shady looking popup on the screen. This latest one was titled “Back2School Promo” with some vague description and unintuitive button choices. This seriously looks like malware or a phishing scam. Please 1) confirm this app has not been compromised and 2) stop this ridiculous advertising. Update: I’m sorry but your canned reply did not address these concerns at all. Uninstalling and no longer recommending this app to anyone.

I like it but
by Yoda30 on 2018/08/13 22:26
I really want to like this app but I can’t seem to figure out how to properly use it. Since you asked… when I get a notification about an event say a meteor shower, I will go to the app and see if there is more information and there isn’t. So why tell me if you’re not going to offer more information. Like how best to view it. Or at least a link to somewhere that has that information. The sky mirroring is good. But it seems that is all your app does. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Meh
by Dave in Argo on 2018/08/26 12:22
The view doesn’t move as I point my device in different directions. #1 reason why I deleted the app about 2 minutes after installing it. It’s a map. You have to know which direction N, E, S, and W is to use it, which isn’t that bad, but it makes it useless to someone who isn’t good at figuring that out when they are in an unfamiliar place. Not a fan.
Nice app! Pretty intuitive and user friendly.
by Lostbackpacker1967 on 2018/05/06 11:37
I love the "info (i)" function as I'm constantly learning something new! The one thing that would make it perfect is to be able to select/refresh the ephemerides of popular bright satellites like ISS and Aqua so that we can try to hunt for them. If there was a comprehensive add-on, I'd buy it!
Love this App
by kostelacj on 2017/04/01 14:09
As an amateur astronomer (10" Dob., 8" SCT) I love this application. My scopes don't have GPS or Computers of any sort. The SCT has its clockdrive for photography and the Dob. has my less and less steady hand, but with care and this App. I find what I like to see at the beach (and in the night sky, too). Thanks for the good work. John
Awesome app
by upper holter on 2017/08/07 15:56

I use this app almost every clear night. I like this much better than Star Walk 2. I would gladly pay a little more on this app than for every little thing on Star Walk 2, unless I misunderstand the pay model.
Needs update?

Seems very user friendly, but I am not sure the data is accurate. I got this app to help me find the 46P/Wirtanen comet but the location this app shows doesn’t match what I have seen from other sources.
Coolest star map ever!

I live in Texas, and spent most of my life looking for a star map that wasn’t based on a much more northern parallel. Then two iPads ago, I found Starwalk. The app has always worked well, and I love it! So easy to identify planets and constellations in real time.
Great way to get kids into Star gazing!

Love this app! I am a MS science teacher and use this app with my students when we study astronomy. They LOVE that it helps them ID what's out there and every year I get more potential astronomers because of it! Thanks! Keep it up!
Great app

I have used other star apps, Star Walk is far better, used for years. It's even better now since they have added more educational information and stellar events calendar.
Love it :D

Have been using it for a few years now. I paid for it and can't remember how much, but it was well worth it because I enjoy using it pretty often. It's so kool to take out my phone and point it at a planet to go "yup, that is Jupiter" "or yup, that's mars/Venus/Saturn/mercury".
One of the most beautiful apps I've seen on any platform

The ability to lock on to sky features and views and sweep through time by hours, days, and months is truly eye-opening.
Problems with purchasing within app
by Cool beans 6457544466 on 2018/01/01 16:44
I love the app and wanted to unlock all the features but got an unknown issue.I have restrictions turned off and am able to make purchases so nothing is wrong with my payment method. Can someone help please.
One of the best star guide maps

This is one of the best guides in Maps, with all the information you can possibly need. It also has links to Wikipedia in the web at your fingertips. Get this
I paid years ago and LOVE it!

As the title reads I paid for the app long ago. I’ve paid for similar but, this is the ONLY astrology app I download to all of my multiple devices. Nice work, to say the least, to those whom did it...!
I Love This App
by Mr. Dibbs on 2017/05/01 22:28
I've spent a lot of time with this app. Great interface, facts, etc. However as of late, the compass will freeze. I can scroll with my finger but if I move my phone - nothing. Still worth it though!
Why do we have to pay for the details?
by 5838485868286 on 2018/09/21 12:57
I want to be able to see details about asteroids, comets, etc. without having to pay. Nobody cares about deep space objects, so we can still pay for those. I want to see when meteor showers happen.
Gorgeous app!

In addition to the beautiful detail and clear, concise explanations, I love the calendar. It gives dates and best times to view all celestial events, so I don't miss any that are in my viewing range. I highly recommend.
My Favorite App Ever
by Cvsilva12 on 2018/06/16 00:22
I use this app everywhere I travel. It comes in handy all the time. My daughter has grown up with this app. I love when she asks me to use Star Walk to help her identify what she sees when she looks up at the night sky.
Flat earth
by Lundy9 on 2018/02/18 18:02
I would like to see star walk to address the flat earth theory ... I think it’s only right I’ve been trusting star walk for some years now , I just think it’s a issue that should get addressed... thanks
