“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

Wow. This app is intense in the way that apps can be when someone builds something that, as some other reviews explicitly state: this app looks like a game, but packs some prime science throughout. I’ll bet that most of the users who were thinking they had a new strategy game actually learned something. That’s the kind of thing that makes teaching great. Fortunately your users are not required to respond to, and you are not responsible for a roll whenever some cranks up your app! I’m not sure how that would work,8>)

Thank you for the review! We are glad you find our app interesting:)
It’s fine. I would like it if you would use voices to go to other years faster. I’M NOT A FAN THAT I CAN ONLY GO TO THE YEARS 500 TO 5000. Can you include black holes and white holes ? We can’t see much. Also include the right color of the stars. For example Betelgeuse is orange not pink. Can you also improve the status on stars. There aren’t much status and it doesn’t make sense. Also can you show what it looks like at that time. For example I went year 500 and it what it is today that’s all the improvements I want. 2WEEKS LATER..... IF YOU RESPONDED WHY IS IT NOT IMPROVED. BETELGEUSE IS STILL PINK WHEN IT’S ACTUALLY ORANGE. START DOING IT OR I’M GOING TO REDUCE MY REVIEW TO THREE STARS IF YOU DON’T DO IT IN A MONTH.
