Terrible

1
Used to be good. I should have gotten it free since I paid before and it’s gotten so bad it’s useless - waste of the little money I have. I would like a refund please.

Terrible programming.

I purchased the bundle inside the app but it keeps locking. Apple has confirmed I made the purchase but it just keeps locking after downloading. DO NOT BUY THIS APP. Sky view app is superior in the fact it actually functions properly

So many ads. Even after my son paid. Me and my grandson are just trying to see the scars.

Can’t find its ass with both hands

Despite years of use and development, SW2 simply cannot tell you how many notifications you have. Just now I was told I had 7 notifications, yet there were three. I have twice notified the developers and twice have been give a “yeah, we know, and someday we may get on that”. It’s a good app, not a great app. Helpful, not perfect. ETA: no change years later. Minus another star for that.

What happened?

The original Star Walk was great! So I pay $6 for the full upgrade and now we can’t find anything. It will not lock position. Just keeps spinning and floating around. I would love to change my review if you can make it worth my money and get it working like the last one did...

Useful App. Works well.

This isn’t something I use every day, but I like it when it’s needed. The positions of stars and planets are correct and easy to find. Probably the only drawback is when it displays the constellations. It makes the screen too busy. They are nice animations , but a little to prominent. Added a star for developer response that solved my gripe!

Keep version 1

1
Version 1 had a cleaner constellation design. The 3D flashy new look is distracting. Version 1 had a nicer horizon line so you could see where an object was below the horizon and anticipate it’s becoming visible. Version 2 has either distracting water reflections or no horizon at all. Version 1 includes deep space objects and meteor showers while these are all additional purchased add-ins for version 2. I’m uninstalling version 2 and will try to get a refund. Very disappointing.
