Zordan ,

great visualization

great visualization

however, the planet size do not seem to be to scale to their distances
I would recommend adding a realistic view,
to show the real distances and planet sizes

it is humbling to see the actual size of the sun and the planets and the vast distances between them

Developer Response ,

hi Zordan - thanks for your review, Happy you are enjoying the app. If you go to Settings / Info tab and scroll down, actual planet sizes are shown for reference. As for the distances yes, as in our splash screen, we mention that planets are extremely distant from each other, as in most / all solar system models and for display purposes we show them closer than they actually are.
Your review gives me the idea that we could include in a future release some visual information about this within the dynamic screen, so thanks for that.

Beautiful and mesmerizing

It’s inherently difficult to picture the dynamic physics of the universe and the fact thar our solar system is spiraling the center of a galaxy in an expanding universe. This app does it beautifully, with options that allow further exploration, right down to a cute human standing next to your location. The music and sound features make it an even richer experience. Being abroad fast-forward creates the corkscrew effect of this amazing ride through space. If you want to be creative, use iOS screen capture or screen recording to make your own video movie. The app designers have done a wonderful job of capturing physics and experience, making this a great educational tool and lots of fun. God’s Creation should humble and glorify his amazing work when we observe it in its amazing and complex reality. This app does that beautifully.

INCREDIBLE view of our solar system!

I’ve always been fascinated with the way our solar system moves through the galaxy and have waited for an app like this for a long time. It has beautiful design and lots of fun features to discover. I especially like the way I can see my place on earth in relation to the earth’s rotation. So cool!
