Good graphics, poor controls
oldsneekers on 2020-10-29
Graphics show the sky and with tap Identify the object. Controls are a problem: to change date or time one clicks on the unit to be changed then slides a finger across the right side but it’s nearly impossible to get a desired date as a mm of movement makes the numbers (date, hour...) fly by too fast to isolate the desired one - eventually the screen goes bonkers - spinning wildly. Also, The menu’s “sky now” really means select object of interest, as it doesn’t show the sky now but a list solar system elements and their location coordinates . Also, the real time sky view requires the user to hold the phone up so that it is between the desire sky element and the eye-this helps the phone and app know where you are looking but prevents you from seeing both the sky object and it’s representation in the app. Holding the phone straight in from of you displays the horizon across the middle of the screen, instead of at the bottom. Yes you can slide the picture down but this freezes the view so that it doesn’t change when the phone orientation changes unless one taps a button to in freeze it. The app should display what the phone is targeted at but with an offset so the horizon is at the bottom and both the screen and object are seen simultaneously.

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 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.
First skywalk was better

Way too much ‘stuff’. I just want to ID what I’m seeing. I didn’t want to spend time trying to figure this app out and how to set this up! I missed out on an event because I couldn’t figure out your new app. Very disappointing evening. I’m not a computer person and not interested in all the bells and whistles of which I’ve no use and see as pointless.
FANTASTIC APP. MUST HAVE if you have kids or students!
LosAngeles90631 on 2020-10-29
Great app to gift to kids, students, OR FOR YOURSELF! Not kidding. It is fantastic and incredibly interesting. Wish I had this app while I was in school. I cant stop using it. Plus, the in-app add-ons are VERY reasonably priced. Not the silly expensive “subscriptions” that other apps have. Fascinating information!!!
Not letting me change time
Kay'ahz on 2020-10-29
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.
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.
Perfect for amateur to enthusiast!

Too many features to love. This is, by far, the BEST astronomy app / sky watch app available. I’ve been using it for about 5 years now and just got around to writing a review (my bad, I thought I already had!). Well worth the cost! Truly an amazing experience!

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.
