Star Walk features and how to use them:
DIGITAL COMPASS: tilt your iPad and the `Star Spotter` function will be activated, a live representation of what you see in the sky will appear on your display and the sky will start following your movements right, left, up, and down.
For better functioning of the digital compass consider doing the following:
1) Tilt your device from landscape to portrait orientation several times. This will help the digital compass recalibrate itself and calculate current position.
2) Make sure the compass is not obstructed by thick walls of buildings or large amounts of metal nearby. Try going outside.
3) Consider trying again later. Sometimes it is unclear what may be influencing the magnetometer.

Like the app a lot however it has the comet Lovejoy 2014 in the wrong position Other than that it is an excellent app Missing Comet
It doesnt get better than this EXCELLENT
Cannot get this version to work automatically to find location Can only get close Does not recognize any change in direction have to move manually Do not use any more On iPad 2 new version does not work
We are on vacation in Mexico with friends and we used the app to look at the beautiful night sky Amazed every time I open this app everywhere I go from Mexico to Tahoe to Alabama Worth every cent Great for all ages
Why does this program not work in live time What am I missing Question
The best sky app i have ever had Amazing
I feel depressed and hope the developers dont give up the 1st version of star walk Please fix to adapt to IOS8
This is the best star app Ive ever seen It has stars planets constellations even satilights Fantastic AWSOME
I love this app Learn something every time I use it and have had no problems or issues with it It seems to be great at identifying stars planets constellations satellites space stations etc the graphics and music are great I have recommended it to many friends and have had no negative feedback at all Awesome
Been using it for years Always with me iPhone or iPad Love it Just great
This app is quality My 8 year old is fascinated by it and enjoys it as much as I do We learned so much together Educational entertainment to the max So very few apps are this quality
The first time I tried this out I had a lot of trouble I thought it would be more complicated than it is But I found the embedded tutorial and found out that using this is so simple Now I can find anything I want in seconds I am also stunned at how much information is easily accessible I use this for nighttime photography and it is really handy So easy to use
This has made looking at the night sky so much more fun Works great on my iPad Great Ap tons of info for lay people
I can change locations but it says nothing about the time zone I should be able to change it Time zone
Really like all the featuresOne problem the sky view does not moveit is frozen in place How can this be fixedUnable to tap a star to rate it if I could would rate the application as 4 starsAfter trying numerous times to contact customer support with a bug report have been unable to properly report this bug Have seen the same write up previous to this report Would have thought it would have been repaired by now I still would rate the app at 4 stars however I would rate the customer support as 1 star Star Walk
Its nice to see the pictures and its a cool app to look at when your bored Its nice
Extreme excellentGreat App Works very smoothlyGraphics are awesome Depicts real time sky Star Walk
If you have any interest in whats what in our skies this is one must have Great app
So far so awesome Get it Thank you to those who put this together Your work and love for the subject is appreciated From a design point of view
i went back to an older version of the app i couldnt stand the visuals in the latest version im so glad i did as i love this program old version
Absolutely love the app Great way to learn very soothing to the mind and Soul My new hobbie
This app totally ROCKS I get to Fly the heavens ThankYou StarWalk
Update it pains me to say Star Walk is superior to the monthsold Star Walk 2 The new app is harder to use Too much glitz which is beautiful but gets in the way of using the app So much information so little dark sky New apps may come and go but Star Walk continues to be the best astronomy sky app It makes me wish I lived in the country where I could get a better look at the stars Still the best astronomy app
Easy to use and pretty accurate Been using it for about 3 years and its still the one I go to after trying all the other similar apps Best Astronomy App
Its a real treat to look up at the sky and then find out what Im looking at Theres so much information you learn everyday Pam
Live View has waning crescent moon waxing crescent moon then new moon Dont be confusing a student please Needs updates
Great program Love the app Grandkids are becoming great star gazers
This is an awesome app The graphics are spectacular Need to know what the sky was like on any date You can get it hereWant a to learn or teach your children about the constellations and orbiting technology Everything we know is up there and a quick look will answer any questions you or the kids may have Great way to learn about the night sky
ISS just passed overhead but the app says its on the other side of the planet Need to update the data Minor errors
I paid a significant amount of money for this app only to be upstaged by Sky Walk 2 Not certain if Vito Tech will continue to provide updates to HD Starting to feel a bit betrayed Paying the Price
This app is not showing any updates since November 2014 yet suddenly it just shuts off when starting it up It was working fine when looking for the Lovejoy comet What happened Not working Anymore
Great update Now my fave widget A meaningful widget
This is soooooo awesome Every single thing you touch it gives you information pictures and sometimes videos You can look At planets nebulas and stars GET IT This is the coolest app I ever got
I have used several stargazingastronomy apps similar to StarWalk and this is definitely my favorite thus far Great design easy to navigate very informative and just plain out fun Highly recommend Wonderful tool lots of fun
I have had this app for years and always loved it Love
No discount for owners of star walk 1 Screw this money grabbing company Star walk 2
Ive loved this app since the first time I saw it Its great to be able to open this app and find answers to my questions and read about different stars and planets I use it to locate dates on whats happening with the real stars AWESOME
This app inspires my children and I every time we use it especially when we look in any direction and discover something new An App that Inspires
Took way too long to figure out how to set my location which is could only approximate In addition it does not autosync to the sky like some of the better apps Does not match up with the glowing reviews Keep looking Not Impressed
This app keeps thinking west is east and east is west It looks impressive but it is wrong Do not buy this app
Did the developers break it on purpose so wed have to purchase Star Walk 2 Well played No longer works
Love to take this out on the boat Outstanding
Really mindblowing how amazing this app is just one tiny suggestion I bought it to learn how to find common constellations but it is just a little too advanced for me despite science background how about an add on interactive intro for newbieskids showing top 10 20 popular objects and facts on these to get us started excellent
I love StarwalkbutMy usual trick of delete reload doesnt work on iPhone nor iPadHELP CRASH
Informative entertaining and fun I love learning about the constellations and stars Thrilling
Amazing w iOS 8 widget Now Im getting more love of this app Widget
Not as smooth on iOS 8 On iOS 7 I could rotate my iPad on a center axis and the sky would remain impressively still there is now a noticeable jerking as I rotate iOS8 issues
A shame when an astronomy program gets it wrong In their appstore screen shots the two people lying on the grass the sun is shining on the right side of her head and on the left side of the moon Hard to believe
Its outstanding and so helpful I dont know anything more helpful than star walk about learning the sky SO USEFUL
