It does work.

I'm using a Lumia 950xl running windows 10 latest build as of 5/20/16. This apps works and is a very very fancy. It takes awhile to load, but when it does. Wow! very cool looking. I really love this app. I have a suggestion. It's the buttons on the right hand side of the screen. When I put my finger directly over them they don't work, but when my finger is to the right of the button. they work great, but it's frustrating, because I'd expect them to work when my finger is directly over them. However they do work. I'm sure this like all things is a work in progress. Thank you for offering this app. It was fun to play with.

Buggy UI

Onscreen buttons don't work which means no changing settings which means you're forced to listen to annoying atmospheric 'music' while using the app.

Star Walk's visuals & deep info are great, but its user interface is fiddly and frustrates me (too close to the edge of the screen, or too small, or both.) I still can't figure out how to move time forward/back in the main view, and this is a deal breaker. (I tap on the clock, and then the digits, and then what?) I still prefer SkyMap because the time machine feature works and the UI is much nicer.

Great app for use under the stars. I love all the extra info that can be learned from the app. However, seems incomplete, the FAQ refers to settings not available like turning off stars not currently visible. Would love to see the wp8 edition of Star Walk more developed.

Sunset and sunrise is uber far off. Can't give more than 1 star for an astronomical app I pay for , that messes up a basic issue.

This is an extremely awesome app......when it works. Half the time it won't open or it opens and freezes and I have to turn off my phone in order to get out of the app. PLEASE FIX! If it was free I wouldn't mind so much but I actually paid for this one
