Duran Duran's keyboard Nick Rhodes mentions Star Walk as his favorite app:
"With the Star Walk app, if you hold your iPod up towards the sky, you can see all the stars and constellations. It even tells you the names of all the planets. Then, if you point it towards the ground, it shows you what all the stars are in the other hemisphere. It’s brilliant, and if you’re ever somewhere with a clear sky and no light pollution, it’s a revelation. It’s beautifully designed and makes clever use of the available technology. I’m fascinated by astronomy, but even if you’re not, give this a go."

Simply the best stargazing app period easy to use read easy to understand and functions beautifully each update it just gets better and better I have others but this is my favorite if you are a pro or novice gazer and you want just one stargazing app this is the one 10 stars in my book great job guys great job. It just keeps getting better and better. Just got the iphone4 and man this app is just amazing i mean WOW. Each update just makes this app better and better I'm blown away by this app.
Why pay $30 for sky safari when you can get this one and it's worth every Pennie it's just beautiful get this app.
When you guys update it's noticeable I mean wow the graphics and ease of the controls this app to me is a iPhone essential app when I want to show the capability of the iPhone I use this app. Even though there is a new version out I still use this one as well thanks for the update.
My first app
I've had this app since its inception and I love it. Simple, educational, visually pleasing, and lots of options to customize. For instance, at times when I don't want full view constellations I temporarily shut them off. Occasionally, I have issues with the movement kicking in properly but it in no way interferes with use or enjoyment of the app. All in all, 5 stars is an easy rating to give. :-)
I wish this was out when I was growing up. We spent many hours on blankets gazing up at the stars. This program is fantastic. The on the spot details of stars, satellites, planets makes this program all you would need to learn about the sky. Fantastic job!
