No Augmented Reality, despite it being advertised on the play store
No compass for me top left. Any ideas?
My IPad Pro version cannot orient itself correctly. Usually 90 or 180 degrees out. iPhone version is ok.
A boon for amateur space glazers.
Granddad tick tock
The best part of this app is it communicates in both metric and imperial and as an elderly Englishman our national broadcaster the BBC talks only in metric these days so this is a lifeline to my understanding and appreciating of the science of Astronomy. So a big thank you for a great app
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.

It’s definitely flash year, I like it. The music is good constellations show up well and the AR is really cool to use. But I do not like or you cannot add events to your calendar do you use to with the previous version
The imagery won't stop rotating. Changing the date manually is extremely difficult to do. The ads are very annoying too. Uninstalled
My 4 year old son and I love this app. He loves space more than I do. We were using this app a few days ago and he asked to see Ganymede and Callisto (by name, Jupiter is his favorite). It's very difficult to zoom into the moons of Jupiter. I purchased all the additional content, and the moons were still not there. Could those be added (at least the ones we have imagery for) This app, if you force touch the app icon, will show you stargazing conditions. Mine shows the conditions are currently poor, yet the app sends me notifications of things to go check out. Why does it do this? It’s more like HA HA, look what you’re missing instead of being informational.
Pretty amazing, though i would like the option to upscale the font size of the stars when viewing. I can zoom to a part of sky to clarify the objects, but names of stars auto shrink / scale small again, gah my eyes need a magnifier on my iphone6. And. Can we get some alternative star names mode- eg australian indigenous stories.. eg where is the emu? - and relate that to scientific names for comparison. Also there are common colloquial names that would also help... ‘the pointers’ the ‘southern cross’.... crux... for beginners learning ... thanks for the great work so far.
I love the app awesome features but for some reason it’s been draining my iPhone X battery. The only thing the app is running is the widget ?

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
