► As you hold your phone up and point it towards the sky, the star map follows your motions using the built-in gyroscope to match the map on your screen to the stars seen from your location. Easily find any star, constellation, or satellite in the sky by tapping Search.

► Get a deeper understanding of the constellation`s scale and place in the night star map. Enjoy observing wonderful 3D models of constellations, turn them upside down, read their stories.

► Touching a clock-face icon at the upper-right corner of the screen allows you select any date and time and lets you go forward or backward in time and watch the night sky in fast motion.

► Find and study deep sky objects such as meteor showers, planetary nebulae, star clusters, etc.

► A slider at the left-hand edge of the screen lets you see the sky at different wavelengths. See objects that are only visible at radio, microwave, infrared, ultraviolet, X-ray, or gamma-ray frequencies.

► The night-mode of this constellation star finder will make sky and stars gazing at night time more comfortable.

Starwalk helps son with traumatic brain injury and epilepsy

Raistlin's Sweetmama

This app is everything you or your loved ones could ever want if they’re as in love with space as my son with a traumatic brain injury and epilepsy is. Upon his injury at 5 years old and relearning to walk, talk, eat, and potty train; one thing he never forgot was his love of our night sky and with this app he had before and after his injury he will sit for hours in the backyard playing with the app learning about the heavenly bodies and when it’s day time he will sit inside with his great grandmother (the one that got me into loving the night sky passing it along to my son) showing her things he learned the night before and while many things are difficult for him still this app helps him in his steady quest for knowledge into our cosmos. It’s easy to use and the 3d pictorial constellations make it easier for him to learn what stars make up each constellation. Thank you for this amazing app!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Developer Response

Thank you very much for your review and the kind words. We are so glad our app turned out to be so useful to your son. We wish all the best to you and your family. Happy stargazing!

Absolutely LLLLOOOVVE this app!

2birdz

This app is amazing. You can look for specific things or notifications can alert you to something in the sky; either way what an experience. Hold it up to see what's in your sky including, my favorite, meteor showers. In December I saw the notification for the Geminid meteor shower, I ran outside and it was spectacular! If you want to know about something in particular it can be your resource and show 2D models as well. I can't say enough about all this app can do, it's worth more than every penny you spend!!!
