“Simply amazing.” - Macworld

“Solar Walk serves up a visually impressive 3D model of our solar system. Set against a haunting, atmospheric soundscape, the app shows planets and satellites in their correct positions, and offers mini movies, facts and other related tidbits.” - TNW

“This jaw-dropping app provides a wholly interactive 3D model of our solar system, one that’s had me hooked for days. It’s the kind of thing you can imagine a science teacher using in the classroom of the future — except that we don’t have to wait.” - CNet

“Zoom from Mercury to Pluto (which makes the cut in this app), passing each planet’s moons along the way. Because Solar Walk knows what time it is, the planets are in proper orientation to the Sun: Earth is dark where it is currently night and gradually lightens to daytime on the other side.” - NY Times

"It's great for showing my students the relative positions of the planets in the solar system, the satellites orbiting the Earth and our place in the galaxy. Awesome with a smartboard as well." - by jbrown61

Solar Walk enables you to:

Great App, Related to Star Walk

I think the AI with exploring planets and specific stars are very valuable too. In my history, I use to snuggle w. my mom and those videos of the Phases of The Moon, Tidal Phenomena, and Cassini, are what I amazingly enjoy about the app. But the only glitch I would say from those video would be “Size Comparison”, it’s just showing Venus, Earth, Neptune and Uranus and that’s it. No moving video, no other planets. But I’m not complaining on the app because, I loved your apps for years. Thank you for reading this one report I outta say to the developers of your following program. 🌌🥰🌌 I <3 space!

I viewed space for a short time.

Solar Walk is great and everything, but it’s just that…
…after 5 minutes, the app just glitches.
The glitchout I had was pixel-ish looking. It kind of looked like a red star with a ring, but was blurry and pixelated.
At the time, I was just viewing satellites until it happened. I swiped the app out, but it didn’t work. It just showed a black screen with Solar Walk on it, with that space-style music. A wondrous world of space inside your phone (or tablet) turns into what it’s like watching an OST video on YouTube just looking at the photo.
Great app, bad execution.
