No Augmented Reality, despite it being advertised on the play store
No compass for me top left. Any ideas?
Too many random marketing messages. One just interrupted a night walk!

Hi, I have just purchased this and the app doesn’t open- it just gets stuck on the StarWalk2 opening page- is there an issue with the app??
such a great app.
I just purchased it. Unable to open, not even once. Freezes when is opening. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Same issue. Installed in iPad 6th generation.
Bought this and the in-app extra since I felt I was missing too much content with the baseline purchase. Looks pretty, though I haven’t seen Sky Safari 6 Pro yet to compare. I politely contacted Vito Technologies, the Solar Walk 2 app creator, asking how to share via Family Sharing with my son on his iPad. The answer was that in-app purchases aren’t shareable and that I need to invest my $15 of in-app purchases (for Solar Walk 2 and Star Walk 2) 4 times, one for each family member. I asked the rep if I should similarly also buy four telescopes, one for me, one for my wife and two children. No response. Just greed and arrogance. They aren’t the only company that hide behind the “in-app purchase excuse” to circumvent Family Sharing, but let’s boycott family-unfriendly apps like this one. When Vito Technologies become obsolete they need only look at the mirror to determine cause. Good riddance.
My family loved the first StarWalk app. So much so that we sprang for the updated version. Gotta day, the app is ok... but to get the most out of it you have to pay here and pay there. “Want to see the position of the comet we just told you about? It’s exciting! Now just $13.99 and it’s yours...” until the next cool thing comes along you want to see that they gouge you for. I’m not “paying” that game. Too bad your app sucks now. Delete. Next?
The battery section in iOS setting shows the app with 1m on screen & 3m background accounting for 43% battery usage in the past 24 hours.
I wish there would be some writing about the constellations and stars. I cannot always orientate myself as to what I am seeing.
I loved this app and it used to work great, however, today it suddenly started freezing on the title screen. I tried restarting the app, restarting my phone (iPhone 6S), and reinstalling the app, but nothing has worked to fix the problem. I still can’t get beyond the “Star Walk 2” title screen.
It’s design beauty is unparalleled by any other astronomy app. Easy layout and a real pleasure to use. Definitely one of the best apps available. Thanks for putting so much effort into design and features! It would be great to see in future updates an equatorial grid to assist with using a telescope. Once again you guys are awesome!
Why does it take long to load??? I haven’t even had a chance to get into the app I’ve been waiting for over an hour for it to load I’m wondering if it’s an update or data loading can you please check the servers to see if it’s either my phone or the app loading I’ll give it four stars because it looks like a good app but I just can’t load into it.
The app is ok. However when I bought the paid version on the App Store. It still comes up as the free version.

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
On every thorn, delightful wisdom grows, In every rill a sweet instruction flows.
