    What happened to ability to have app track my movement so I can easily confirm stuff I see in the sky based on position. I tapped the compass icon like I have for last several years and it changes into the share function forcing me to search. I experimented and searched for something and then as I follow the arrows by moving my phone in the direction of arrow, nothing happens so something is up with gps. I checked all settings and it’s set to track while using the app. I have an iPhone 12.

    You changed what the app did. No longer does it follow the sky when you move the phone☹️
  • Needs numerous updates.

    I like the app but the developers are letting updates slide. The app needs a refreshed GUI and some functionality of iOS interfaces are lacking.
  • Great

    It all started when my Elementary school teacher showed us the first Star Walk. And then we got Star Walk 2. Continually updated for so long, fairly cheap and completely worth the purchases within it. Such a useful and well developed tool for astronomy, thank you for developing it. I’ve truly grown up with it.
  • Just get this App!

    I have had this app for many years (10?) Its very educational, very accurate , very intertaining. Its nice to look up and actually know what you are looking at! Using my new IP14 Pro Max, bigger size of phone easier to hold on to.
