How is it different from Solar Walk?
Solar Walk 2 has all-new graphics, interface and updated planetary textures. Your exploration of the Solar system in Solar Walk 2 is guided by a carefully handpicked calendar, a collection of simulations of celestial events with stunning visuals. You can still fly around the Solar system and explore it on your own, like in Solar Walk 1, but now you have a comprehensive tour guide at your disposal.

The app contains In-App Purchases (Premium access).

Premium access allows you to enjoy space missions, satellites, celestial events, asteroids, dwarf planets and comets.

Unlock Premium access to the history of space exploration and man-made spacecraft. Travel with Voyager 1, see how gravity assists helped Cassini get to the outer edges of the Solar system, and explore Hubble as if you were right next to it.

Note: Solar Walk users with the app installed on device get unlimited access at a discount.

Quite immersive, nothing else like it.

I’ve had this app for quite a while now, a little over 2 years I think; and I am still being entertained and learning new things! I’m a huge follower on astronomy, and because of this app I have been up to date on all kinds of events in the night sky. I love the notifications from both this app and star walk 2 (another AMAZING app.) But I sure wish there was an option for rendered atmospheres for bodies such as Venus, Mars, and Titan for viewing landers. Also the music for this app is great! It has that cool space exploration feel to it. And most apps are advertised on the App Store to have these great graphics, but end up being this low-poly animation from 2001. This app however has some of the greatest graphics I’ve ever seen in a mobile app! Solar Walk 2 truly makes you feel like an omniscient observer of the galaxy.

Amazing. Got a few ideas though...

Honestly, nothing is better than flying through space looking at the planets and stars to me. But there are a few things that I think would make this game the best. First, I was thinking adding exoplanets to stars we have discovered with them, or just auto generate them. Also, free fly mode. Be able to fly around freely and do whatever you want. And that idea takes me to two others. The first is landing on planets. Getting to explore the surface of planets and/or moons with a rendered atmosphere if added. The second one is exploring outside our galaxy. Getting to travel to areas millions of light years away, but at a limit of our local group only. It would be to hard to load anything outside the local group. The app would just crash right when you start. Anyway, the final idea (and everyone, and I mean “everyone,” is gonna like this idea) is...................................................

.........Black Holes. With added light bending and supermassive black holes and all.

Anyway, yeah. Those are “my” thoughts on future updates for this app.

Thank you very much for the ideas. We will think whether we can implement them in our app.

Love it but needs a couple tweaks

I purchased the first star and solar walks and so far solar walk 2 looks amazing as well. I don’t think the planets look as good close up as the 1st solar walk but I purchased the hi res planets so can’t really compare. Where it one ups the first one is the view of local stars, it really looks awesome.

One big thing that bothers me is the way zooming in and out behaves, it has “notches” you have to push through and you can’t zoom to any distance you want. I really hope it can be improved to behave exactly as you control it, no notches and zoom to precise distances. Also when using airplay on Apple TV the screen stays in 4:3 ratio where solar walk 1 will go into 16:9 while mirroring.

Great app, just bought the lifetime premium access and look forward to using it. Hoping for fixes and improvements!
