No Augmented Reality, despite it being advertised on the play store
No compass for me top left. Any ideas?
This is the second version of this app that I have purchased and it’s very good. I would like the ISS to stay on the viewer when notifications are activated for it rather than having to search for it and then select it in order to see where it is.
Sen No Waza
I Bought this thinking it would be a good upgrade from the original but as soon as I paid I was asked to pay again for the features listed in the original advertisement. I paid as it said satellite tracking but the reality is there are only about six satellites it tracks if you want more then its subscription time in a different app. Totally disappointed and I WANT MY MONEY BACK ! I STILL WANT MY MONEY BACK ITS A CON ! You have the audacity to contact me trying to justify your scam but not offer me a refund ! And STILL WAITING FOR MY MONEY BACK !
Got the full package for me and my little one. He’s now obsessed with the planets and stars ! Amazing for us both. Love the fact you can spin planets and satellites on orbit, with the moving stats behind. The layout is easy to work for my son, he’s only 6, he points out the constellations and the North Star when we’re out walking.
such a great app.
I find Star Walk 2 to be completely amazing and have looked at the exact same thing only more clear beyond explanation. It’s a see it to believe it moment ! My kids and I lay on the grass and the what’s that mommy is answered and I learned more ever time. Thank You
Just downloaded version 2. Impressed with what I see so far, but too many pricey add-ons.
Finally deleted the app. Just quit working one day. Paid for it, kind of enjoyed it while it worked but almost useless when it stops and just no getting it going again.
East is North, North is West, etc
Cant get name
To much needs to be payed for!
I had this open for less than 10 minutes, but apparently that was too long to return it. The music was annoying, but easy to turn off. The sound effects were overdone, but easy to turn off. The constellation images were over the top, and they have animations that shimmer and sparkle when you pan around the sky. They are very distracting and can make the stars of the constellations difficult to see and identify. I couldn’t turn off the sparkle. One option in the settings looked promising, but it didn’t do anything that I could identify. Most annoying is that the app requires an additional in-app purchase for more than a very limited discussion of simple things like individual planets. That isn’t clear here In the App Store. Fortunately this is partly corrected by a button that links directly to Wikipedia. After playing with it some more, I found the setting to “dial down” the animated constellation images. But even the simple stick figures are animated, disappearing and redrawing (note: not “reappearing”) as I pan through the sky. Someone might find that entertaining for a few minutes sitting at their desk, but the feature makes it difficult to compare to the night sky. I’m still very annoyed that an in-app purchase is required to see full content. The jury is still out on notifications.
Amazing download this app
I paid $4.50 for the app but then have to pay an in-app purchase of a further $4.50 to unlock extra features. The developer is essentially offering a free version or a paid version with additional costly upgrades. Seems a bit rich.
I really like this app and think it is awesome but a few things annoy me. 1. Nebulas and galaxies don’t show zoomed out and you need to zoom in all the way to see them 2. Most of the 3D galaxies look the same in the models and is really weird and annoying I love this app but pls fix
There is no such thing as global warming. Chuck Norris was cold, so he turned the sun up.
I think Star walk 2 is very useful and fun because you can see all the stars or planets around you. I gave it 3 stars because it is useful,fun,amazing,and educational app. The reason why I didn’t give it five stars is because it could be more satisfying but it is still a great game for kids and adults to enjoy. By Anna (a 9 year old girl)😃😜😎🤩🤔🤗💩🐚🐴🦋🐣🐭🐱🐶🦊🌹🌍🌜⭐️🌟💫☄️ Please feel free to remove this review as the 9 yr old reviewer doesn’t really know what she means by “more satisfying”. Our entire family use and enjoy the app regularly and think it’s great!
Real slick, nice aesthetics and awesome to have information at your fingertips for celestial objects. A bit disappointed in the lack of customisation for enabling or disabling certain types of bodies and no ‘bookmark’ option to keep certain bodies in the sky for quick reference.
Terrible, shuts down in cold weather
Özellikle Apple Watch ile aktive olan parmağınla işaret ettiğin yıldızı gösterme özelliği çok yararlı.
Harika bir uygulama
