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.

Fantastic app also no crashing so far

I love the detail and how well it works especially that I’m in Australia.
Headphones are really good idea to get full experience, as well as Apple TV on my 4K uhd tv.

Keep up great work.

Good, and frustratingly close to great

Solar Walk 2 is the best simulation of and reference to the positions of the objects in our solar system that I've been able to find on the App Store. Unfortunately, some of the navigation features really hobble what would otherwise be a near-perfect experience.

For example, let’s say you wanted to observe Voyager 2’s closest approach to Neptune, to see how it altered the probe’s trajectory and brought it into position to capture images of the previously unknown geysers on the surface of Neptune’s largest moon, Triton. You can search for Voyager 2, and in the calendar section of its information select the Neptune Fly-by and choose View. From this point in time, you want to rewind to see the closest approach, but the fastest you can rewind in close-up is too slow to get to the approach in a reasonable amount of time. Worse, if you zoom out too far by accident (in an attempt to view both Neptune and Voyager 2 in their entirety), suddenly the app switches to a much larger time scale, and Voyager 2 zips all the way back to Earth in an instant, forcing you to start over.

I think the two time scales need to be unified, and the app needs to allow you to zoom further out while in the object scale, and further in while in the solar system scale.

Very interesting and beautiful

I loved the original version. Kind of sad that the current trend is to release new versions -- rather than more utility or better looks for existing revisions. Often this strategy leaves users thinking the practice is simply a grab for $$, a means to increase revenue for software publishers--and it probably is just that. Having made that comment, I admit that I like this '2' version of Solar Walk though I haven't yet explored it in any depth yet...

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. We are really glad you like Solar Walk 2. Solar Walk and Solar Walk 2 have much in common, nevertheless, each app has its own advantages. A lot of users enjoy using both the first and the second versions of the app.
