What it can do is amazing .....but...lacks metro style implementation. In point to sky mode when you search for constellations it should remember the last selected so you shouldn't have to scroll down everytime you want to search for a new one. When you resume the app it takes a while to work again(about 2-3 secs). Some searches move my view direct to the constellation and cant return to the point to sky mode unless i restart the app( not every time...pretty rare but it happened). This are the things i noticed after 15-20 mins of using it. Ah..by the way, i am pretty sure Sun doesn't rises at 3:51 on 5th of April at 45degrees latitude(France, South Germany, Romania). Overall it has the most features compared to any app of its kind on WP but needs more work on the metro style implementation, small bugs and a bit of improved performance. Please don't take this as complaints or something bad, just suggestions to improve the app so I can give it the full 5 stars it would deserve

Ported poorly to WP. Static sound at the background that drains battery

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.

Really really needs an update lots of bugs. Apples version of it on app store is way better lots more info and adjustments and settings and doesn't freeze up. FIX IT GUYS!!!!

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

This app is just plain gorgeous! So much great info - love seeing what's in the sky! Background music is a little choppy but other than that an awesome app!

An update every now and then would be nice

Been a user of this app back since I was on iPhone 4. It works... But haven't seen any meaningful updates in forever. UI seems outdated and whole operation is quite slow in today's standards.

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.
