    Every night I check out the sky. Star Walk always helps me name stars, identify constellations and notice unique events. I like the way it looks, I like that I can change things like the magnitude of stars visible. The app reminded me to look for the planets that appeared close to the moon this last month. I like reading articles in the app. When there are too many clouds I can still look at the stars on my iPad.
  • Simple. Fast. Beautiful graphics.

    I had the night sky app but it was too laggy, even for my iPhone 11 Pro Max. I’ve used Star Walk 2 for a couple years now and it’s been solid and reliable. Definitely get if you’re into constellations and interested in astrophotography!
  • wanted for Apple Watch

    the complication on the Apple Watch simply doesn’t work 50% of the time - it just crashes. uninstalled, reinstalled, power cycled multiple times, nothing helps. Shame, I really wanted this functionality, but it just doesn’t work half the time.
  • Almost perfect...

    The app provides very accurate and detailed information about the stars and everything else beyond. I use it quite often when planning my Milky Way and deep sky shots, especially when the moon is at a high illumination percentage. To be honest it’s almost perfect but I have a couple of recommendations for improvement. 1. Finer and slower dial for reversing or going forward in time. Like I said, I and probably hundreds more use this app to plan shots, sometimes days in advance. It’s kind of a pain to forward time as the slightest turn will probably send you more than you would like, and it can get frustrating. 2. Another frustrating part about planning shots with this app is that if you do forward or reverse the time, you can’t do the AR view where you can point your phone around and see where things are at. This feature is only available to the current time, and when attempted at a past or future time, it resets the settings back to present time. Overall, a great app, which can be the best if these recommendations above were considered. Thank you!

    Una pregunta: porque el reloj con puntero no funciona más ?  no lo permite? Seguridad, tema comercial ? Sistema operativo ? Alguna chance de que vuelva a estar en una futura versión ?

    I use it nightly when I’m setting up my telescope. It’s fantastic help.
  • I really like the Star Walk 2 app! I like that I get notices of events that I might have missed.

    I and I use the Sky Walk 2 app almost every day. We have a great view of the night sky. On a recent trip to the Dominican Republic, I used my Sky Walk 2 app to watch the Taurus meteor shower. I was notified by SW2 that it could be seen that night close to midnight. We walked out on the beach, sat down, and within 10 minutes one streaked across the sky! It was the first “shooting star” my sister in law had ever seen. SW2 made me the hero of the night!!
  • Love the App

    I've had this app for a while and it's always worked until now. When I open it, the app is frozen and stays that way. I've tried troubleshooting but nothing seems to work. Please fix it.
  • Thank you 🙏🏻
