“Star Walk is a remarkably in-depth and detailed astronomy app. There's so much you can do with this app” - Common sense media
“Star Walk is the best stargazing application I have come across for the iPhone. Many of the features found within the application cannot be found in any others! This is one of the best developed and executed applications I have seen to hit the app store.” - iMore
“This app brings the old paper star chart into the smartphone age, and makes exploring the night sky easily accessible to everyone.” - Soggy Astronomer
Duran Duran's keyboard Nick Rhodes mentions Star Walk as his favourite app:
“It’s brilliant, and if you’re ever somewhere with a clear sky and no light pollution, it’s a revelation. It’s beautifully designed and makes clever use of the available technology. I’m fascinated by astronomy, but even if you’re not, give this a go.”

Ratings and Reviews
Just one tiny thing...
Love the app but a little thing... when there is a red flag indicating a message or notification you open up the app and .... nothing.
If you’ve got something to tell me, tell me. Please.
Response to developer: I guess I’ve got flags turned on but notifications turned off - so I see the flag but not the text of the notification. Thus the lonely flag leads me to expect something when I open the app.
It’s no big thing but when apps like mail and other messaging apps have the red flag they somehow show the relevant messages when you open the app. I was just expecting this to follow the ‘norm’. One of the great beauties of the Apple ecosystem is that things work - and different things work the same ... mostly. This just broke my with expectations.
This is not a major criticism - the app is still great.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the feedback. Your remark is taken into consideration. We send ntifications to keep users up to date with the latest celestial events. It is assumed that you read the text of the notification and go to the app.
This app is really interesting and you learn a lot about all the satellites. If an object is close enough you may even see it moving. When you search something in the search bar it will automatically take to the celestial body. So in other words..... THIS APP IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Developer Response ,
We are excited to receive such feedback. Thank you so much for the kind words!
A few objects were not in the right place
I have two other apps like this, SkyView and SkyGuide. There was a full moon last night and after opening SkyView and pointing my iPad directly at the moon the read the info, I did the same thing with Star Walk. After pointing my iPad at the moon and opening the app, the moon wasn’t there! So using the Search feature, I found the moon to be below the horizon and in its place was a star named Vega.
