“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.”

Key features:

• Night sky map with thousands of stars, constellations and other sky objects.
• Real-time tracking of celestial bodies.
• Augmented reality sky view.
• Deep sky objects to explore in detail.

Still the best.

I have had Star Walk on a succession of iPods, iPhones and iPads for 10 years now and I would not be without it. It has never let me down. It has been stable for all this time. It is my go to app for quick star or planet locating. The background information is very useful. I have Star Walk 2 as well. Together they give me all I need on my phone when I am stargazing. Keep up the good work.

Great app 👍🏻

Easy to use app and great features. I have been using this for a couple of years now and never really found a problem.
The only thing that could do with looking at, is the notifications. I had a notification that Jupiter and Venus are close in the sky tonight This notification came after they had set below the horizon! The notification should take into account the users location (I live in the UK) and not assume the live in the USA. That is the only issue that has bugged me, otherwise, 5 stars 👍🏻

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for being our user for so long and for leaving valuable feedback. We will consider it. The notification about Jupiter and Venus sent on Friday was about Saturday's sky event.

This app has always been useful for me. From quick checks of the beautiful night sky to long periods of quick gazes up, this app has big potential. I would rather prefer the first one that the second one because it’s more simple.
