Disappointed

1
I had a sky viewing App in the past where I could aim my phone to the sky and it would tell what the different objects were in the sky: planets, stars, constellations, etc. When I upgraded to an iPhone I lost this App and it was no longer available. This Sky Walk2 App does not do this. I’ve tried other sky Apps and they’re cluttered with constellation artist renderings.

Great Job!

I really appreciate and enjoy using this beautiful app. It’s simple to customize to your liking and locate most celestial objects with information about them right at hand. Most everyone I’ve shown this app to has downloaded it themselves.

Not letting me change time

1
Paid for app twice and bought every bundle I could but it won’t let me change the time. I got it specifically for that feature since I’m taking astronomy and sometimes I wanna go back and see if I missed anything. Bought an app that I can’t use. Paid for the bundle , and bought this twice useless.

Widget shows no information

I’m running the latest version of iOS 14. The widget shows no information. I hard restarted my iPhone. Didn’t solve the problem. I’ll try deleting the app and reinstalling. If I don’t update this review, you can assume deleting and reinstalling do not help. Update: Widget fixed. Rating changed to 5 stars. And KUDOS do the developer for so conscientiously responding to user comments in the reviews. Sadly, many developers do not choose to response to user comments. Those that do deserve a pat on the back!

Disappointed

I point it to the sky and it does not tell me what I am looking at. I received an message from the developer explaining how to correct my problem. I missed a very important step setting up the app. I am now satisfied and I wish to thank the developer for taking the time to resolve my issue.

Go out in the morning and ask what star is that. Open the application and instantly I have the name. Great application.

Things I was able to previously view they now want me to purchase upgrades for. After I have previously purchased what I was led to believe would include everything, I’m done with feeding them $. Screw off.
