The app itself is great, but to be honest, the ads ruin the experience... Every 3 to 5 clicks, a video ad pops up which can only be closed after 5 seconds. Without paying to remove the ads, I this app is unusable, unless you like watching ads. Who knows, you might be into that. Aside from this, the price is more than fair for a great app with a lot of information and great UI and usability (without adds). I recommend you buy the full version and enjoy the experience.
My boyfriend bought me a telescope that came with a code for free access to the full version, but according to the app I'm still in 'free' mode and have to pay for individual 'unlocks' including a separate charge for the ad-free version. Not sure what I've even managed to unlock with this code, if anything.
Easily the best star gazing app on Android! The free version can get annoying with the ads but they're placed as tastefully as possible but still a nuisance. But, only $5 ($4.99) for the full version really is a bargain! C'mon it's only 20 Quarters!!! Star Walk 2 is nice and interactive and really well put-together! Spend the fiver and enjoy the night sky! You'll discover something you've haven't seen before. If you get it, you'll get it! The cosmos awaits! Cheers!
I'm knocking down my rating by one because the app keeps pestering me to leave a rating over and over again even though I had previously submitted a 5 star review. Beautiful app. There's just the right amount of information for my curiosity. The only thing I would like to add would be more objects to find.
First off, the ads are very constant but understanding that this is a free app makes that temporary. After trying out the funtions and settings etc. I'd say this is a decent app. There's a good amount of info for the stars and planets and it's fairly easy to use. I do like Whats New section, nice to have up to date celestial events. The things I dont like is that Im not able to turn off the constellation graphics for a basic line version and also the lack of an auto rotate function that moves with the phone to see the area your facing, if it is there then its not noticeable. Overall, good app and needs a couple tweeks in order for me to purchase the full version. Thanx :)
Bought the telescope, downloaded the app, will not show me the stars when I point my phone to the sky. Too much agro to try and sort it. Make it simple. I've seen better apps than this. You shouldn't have to invest more money if you have bought the telescope.
