    Believe me, this app is amazing. I’ve been using it for years to see the planets and stars. Although, recently I downloaded the Night Sky app, I will admit, it isn’t as good as star walk 2, but I like the music in Night Sky a little bit more than the current music. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great, but I just prefer the NS music. Would there be any way to put multiple soundtracks in the game and you can choose which music you want to hear? Kind of a silly question, but it would make me happy. Thanks for reading!

  • Night sky from my balcony

    I can’t figure out how to get the sky and stars by pointing my phone in the app. I want the stars and planets labeled as I scan the horizon.

    Didn’t this app have a feature that allowed you to use the iWatch as a pointer when looking at your iPhone? I don’t see this ability anymore (iPhone 8 plus, IOS 11.4)
