    By skyscaper1
    It’s fun to check out what’s in the night sky. Sometimes hard to s arch for things. However kids and my dad spent hours every so often searching the skies! Cool 🌹🇺🇸👍🏻
  • Amazing!!!

    By TIFF 11706
    We live in Hawaii and it is so cool to use this app! Thank you developers for making this incredible application. I am getting more and more interested in astronomy lately and this app has helped me so much! Our family all loves this app and we use it to have fun at night before bed. Definitely deserves a five stars except for all the adds. Other than that... exceptional work developers! One thing that I could fix would be that we already paid for this app but we are supposed to pay more if we want to get rid of the adds... I think that is very unfair to us.
  • My son loves this app

    By CoffeeDawg
    My son wanted to see the stars at nighttime and also in the daylight. So I got him this app and he loved it. I hope you guys can make a star walk 3 soon
  • Nothing Short of Awesome

    By Potato on the Couch
    When I purchased the app it was with minimal expectations, but the features and capabilities are beyond what I expected. I’ve only been using for less than 24hrs and I already feel I’ve gotten more than what I’ve paid for. Definitely pay for the extra features.
  • This is the best APP for viewing planets

    By Eod Comdr.
    Recommend this app for anyone interested in viewing the planets and learning more about them.
  • Whats. Happened to this app

  • Go Outside and Look Up

    By AK.dave
    This is THE ONLY Astronomy app you will ever need. Go outside tonight and look up. What do you see? Star Walk 2 has the answer; and, with this app, you can see what it looked like the night you were born! Can not say enough about how much information is at your fingertips and how beautifully presented. The “night mode” feature (red screen) is perfect for protecting your night vision while sitting under the stars. When I downloaded Star Walk 2 I deleted all the other astronomy apps I had wasted my time and money on.
  • Intrusive

    By Luiz Aguiar
    The information about your other apps available for sale SHOULD NOT be on my settings. I will never buy anything else from you!!
  • Used to love but...

    By chasm9999
    The sky does not move to the new directional orientation when I move the phone. Frustrating.
