Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I wanted plus some
I think the free version of this app is great, so awesome that even though the free version has all that I needed to know (we had mars hanging in the eastern sky and Jupiter in the West every night for the last month), I’m considering just upgrading because the information about the stars and planets is so much fun for all of us. Even driving down the highway, without internet service, the calibration to my phones compass kept everything where it was suppose to be.
I was concerned after I read the first review that I wouldn’t be able to find the information we were asking ourselves all month due to adds, but up until I used a notification about the international space station rising to open the app I hadn’t seen an add at all, except for when I would click on some planets and stars for more information when I would get a suggestion to upgrade for the extra planet information.
Very cool app.

We are excited to get your review! Thank you very much for being our user!
OULD BE a Great app, but in-app purchases don’t go to a new phone 😡
I loved using the app, but I got tired of the ads. I purchased the whole she-bang in app bundle and was very happy. I would think that since I’m signed in to the same iTunes account I was on my last phone, it would carry my in-app purchase. I was angry when I found it didn’t. Now I’m stuck with ads again. Even when I hit the “restore” button, nothing happens. I mean nothing. I could push it a hundred times and nothing. Would be 5 stars without this issue.
UPDATE: After contacting the company as they requested, several emails back and forth later, they asked me to send proof that I made an in app purchase. I had to dig but found n email from Christmas time 2 years go. I sent them the screenshot in an email, offered to FW the actual email, and that’s when I stopped hearing back from them. This is unbelievable. This is the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Very disappointed.

Please contact our support team with this problem (email@example.com).
You did not read my comment. My version of starwalk 2 was not useable. ads disabled the app... I guess you designed that feature as well? Confusing. I did revert to your previous version which is also free and deleted the current version we are discussing.
"We are sorry that ads spoil your impression of the app. We appreciate our users and created 2 versions (free ad-supported and paid with no ads) of Star Walk 2 to give them the opportunity to try the app without paying for it. A lot of users enjoy the free version regardless of advertising. Having a choice between the paid and free but ad-supported version is better than not even being able to try the app without purchasing it... Hope you understand."
cant attempt to test it, ads kill the app... thank you for the response.
I do understand it is free and “ad supported”... but that is misleading. It is more like the app supports the ads. You dont have to annoy people into buying your real version... simple ignorant (ignorant... not stupid) responses such as the one you provided, they simply make us hold the app and press “x”. You should delete this rating, because others will see where I am coming from. Thanks for the response and the app. I will find another.

The free ad-supported version of Star Walk 2 gives a chance to try the app for free, though ads. Those who need this chance will definitely use it. You always have a choice - to use get the paid version, to use free ad-supported app or not to use the app. Again, hope for understanding.
