    Really, a program that won’t allow you to view andromeda, or even the Pleiades, deserves no space on my star view

    While the app still gives reminders when something like the ISS is coming into view, it no longer shows you where in the sky it is (or will be). This used to work but no longer seems to.
  • Awesome

    This has been a super app for years, and they continue to update it. Highly reliable and highly accurate, it is great for identifying an unrecognized sky object, for planning a night’s observations or astrophotography session, and for looking ahead to interesting sky events. No complaints, this is a must have!
  • Useful and Fun

    Using Star Walk 2 I can not use the iPad Pro Smart Keyboard to enter search info. Works ok if the keyboard is removed and the on screen keypad is used. Star walk 1 works ok.
  • Amazing!

    I just want to say that this is the best stargazing app in the App Store! I had reviewed it in the past and noted that something that could be improved on is the time dial, as many people use this app to plan Astrophotography. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who have requested for a finer time dial adjustment but I am SO HAPPY that you guys listen to your fans. Love the app, please keep up the good work!
