Star Walk 2: The Night Sky Map Pros

Star Walk 2 harnesses the power of your iPad to make a planetarium.Star Walk 2 presents the user with a conjunction of software and hardware to make a planetarium for use inside and alongside your telescope or binoculars under the night sky. This application lets me check the ephemeris of a night object and then “see” it inside by holding the iPad up to the sky where it shows me a virtual real time night sky, in the exact position objects appear. Then I can repeat this outside and there it is. Even such an ephemeral sight as the ISS will come over the local horizon in the exact position Sky Walk 2 shows. It always amazes me, and makes viewing the night sky easy and productive..GsmollinVersion: 2.9.6

Star Walk 2: The Night Sky Map Cons

Request to allow for recalibration!I love this app. I loved its predecessor too. But I'm getting increasingly frustrated at the app's inability to recalibrate. I tried using it this morning to show my 3-yr-old that Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto were all in a line (more or less) but had to shift my phone a good six inches to the left to get it to display. I was trying to use the moon as a large visual reference, and no dice. I tried closing the app and relaunching when I got to work, this time using the sun as an easy reference point, and still nothing. I seem to recall that I could recalibrate the original Star Walk whenever I felt it was necessary, and now I can't find anything that lets me even check calibration settings. Extremely frustrating. This app is otherwise totally worth the cost, if I could get it to function!.KmarimbaVersion: 2.7.6

Love the App; Hate the pop-up AdsThe title says it all. I’ve had the app for a long time but i am tempted to remove it after a so-called “notification” on my lock screen for a back to school ad. I’m 42 fyi..ScoibledgeVersion: 2.8.6
