An amazing experience

Hi all I’m a witch and star walk as helped me to align my spells with the stars, it helps tell me what moon phase it is which helps a lot as sometimes I don’t get the time to look it up or refer to any lunar calendars it’s also an amazing experience if you are interested in the stars and constellations, It even is something that you can do if you’re bored!

Previous versions much better

I originally got the previous free version. My son and I used it a lot! Not having been able to stargaze for some time, I was disappoint with the update. The ads for one - and yes, I know you can remove them, but who wants to sort that out when they open the app out in the night air ready to star gaze? The constellation graphics are overpowering. I know you can turn them off, but many events are described in relation to the nearby constellations, so they are helpful when searching. These versions are just too distracting! I find it doesn’t move around the sky with me as well as the other and freezes when I zoom in. All in all, not nearly as satisfying nor user free friendly experience as previously.

Poor user experience and design

I’ve purchased StarWalk a few years ago and have found it better than other apps. I was disappointed that I now had to buy StarWalk2 in order to see features such as SpaceX Starlink but figured I’d buy that satellite pack. It was a spectacular disappointment because it didn’t provide me the ability to find or track Starlink when I know from other websites that it should be passing overhead.

The constellation animations are so bright that I lose my night vision if I glance at the app for a location check. Dancing and glimmering bright animations is the opposite of what I’d expected in an app which would be mostly used in dark conditions outside.

This is coupled with the ads which are so frequent that I’d consider them to be a non-negotiable purchase. As others have also mentioned, there’s an ad every few seconds. I understand the in-app purchase model but StarWalk2 is at ridiculous levels.

I rate this one star for StarWalk2 design and usability, and one star extra because of good memories of the original StarWalk experience. Sorry to the devs, I know you’ve probably slaved away to make this but it feels like one of the many apps I tossed aside when purchasing StarWalk.

Thank you for downloading the app and for sharing your opinion with us. The images of constellations are optional, you can easily turn them off in the settings of the app (menu/settings/constellations). This ad-supported version helps a lot of people use the app for free. Hope that you will enjoy the app in the future.
