    The horizon on Star Walk on my new iPhone is tilted about 10 degrees from horizontal. Any ideas what the cause could be? Spirit level apps are exactly level so I'm a bit stumped.

    Mine too. Probably a bug in Star Walk related to the different screen dimensions.

    Thanks for replying. I'm really pleased it's not just me. Wondered if it was some hardware fault. Can go to bed happy now!:)

    Me too also. Dangit. I hope the iPhone 5 doesn't have inherently off-angled sensor! How does one report this to the app developer to see if they can tweak it? Assuming it is fixable...

    This app has reassured me that it's not a problem with the phone....

    Star Walk

    Hello,
    Just got this app yesterday and wondering if my phone is messed up. I cant get the augmented view to work. From what I've read there is supposed to be a camera icon which you can use the gyroscope of the phone to view the stars.
