Duran Duran's keyboard Nick Rhodes mentions Star Walk as his favorite 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
I LOVE this app! I’m 61 and have always loved watching and reading about space and the universe, like Carl Sagan, etc. It’s really great getting push messages about upcoming events, and also pointing my iPad up at the sky and it knowing where the stars and satellites are and naming them. This was the first app I ever bought when I purchase my first iPad and it is well worth the few dollars. I’ve enjoyed it for years. And oh yea, I can’t forget the great background music, you’ll feel like your at the science center viewing the stars!
One of my favorite apps
I forget when I installed this app on my iPad but after I moved out of the city to a place where I could really see the stars it's become my most used app. I've learned to recognize constellations, observe satellites, notice various asteroid showers, and best of all, track the Milky Way across the night sky. I've even taken up night photography to capture some of the magic myself. I keep the music off so I don't wake anyone. I love this app! Heavenly.
Point your device at the sky anywhere and see what's there. Tap on stars, planets, and satellites to learn more about each. Even when it's too cloudy to see stars, or daylight, or you want to see what's about to peek above the horizon, or point at the ground to see what's in the sky on the other side of Earth, this amazing app shows you what's around us. My kids are just as enamored. I've loved StarWalk for over 6 years and it keeps surprising....
