“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

With Solar Walk Ads+ you will be able to:

• Observe the 3D model of our Solar system with all objects in real time and in a proper orientation.

Enjoy gorgeous graphics and visuals while navigating through the Solar system.

• Travel in time and see what the Universe and our Solar system looked like at a certain period.

• Find an exciting view of the Milky Way Galaxy.

• Watch a collection of educational solar system movies to learn about space-related topics including moon phases, Earth's cycles, tidal phenomena, and zodiacal constellations.*

• Enjoy a 3D planetarium with the help of special glasses after activating the anaglyph mode.

• Make virtual flights from one space object to another.

• Share interesting screenshots of the app with your friends.

• Choose the view mode comfortable for you (orrery/true-to-scale).

Could you add the minor moons of Jupiter Saturn Uranus and Neptune and make it so it has textured Pluto surface and textured mercury surface and please make it so you could see The surface of the planets and moons by flying to it and please add a zoom feature so you could zoom in and see things that are very far away like you could be on earths surface and then you can zoom in on the Moon or maybe Venus

Pretty but seemingly not too educational.

For transparency sake I have only bought “the earth cycles” for a dollar but it doesn’t even go through earth orbital cycles, it goes through a really cool video of only the ORBIT!!! Not Aphelion, Perihelion, Axial Tilt and precession or anything else.

It seems impossible to find any good educational apps that have more than the basic boring facts like distance, weight etc of a planet. SPEND MORE TIME ON MAKING APPS MORE DEEPLY EDUCATIONAL! This is still just pretty stuff, it looks very good but where is the actual educational value.

From this single purchase I am hesitant to pay for more. Design something accurate and educational where people can see and adjust the rotations, orbits, tilts and precessions and how all that connects for the earth, moon and the planets so people can actually learn. ITS TIME FOR APP DEVELOPERS TO GET MORE SERIOUS ABOUT ACTUAL EDUCATION, people like me would pay quite a bit if a truly educational app that visual looked like this was ever available. Apps need to evolve past infotainment, a few facts and figures and pretty graphics.

Ads in paid version

Yes, I missed that in the description. The app is beautiful, however that means little when many taps on the screen generate a pop up ad. I paid for the content, why am I constantly inundated by ridiculous ads?

Response: I admitted that I overlooked that in the description of the app. I have several of your apps and this is not something I have seen from you before. The bigger issue is the ads are highly obtrusive. They are not some subtle header or footer, they over take the full screen and completely detach me from the experience of using your app. The enjoyment of using an app as beautiful as this is ruined when the ad pops up and I have to hunt a way to close it. It takes my entire focus away from the content I paid for and have come to expect because of your other apps I am delighted to use.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Solar Walk Ads+ is ad-supported. You get the basic content of the paid version for free, but you also get ads in the app. When you pay for the extras you receive access to the additional content. All the features of the extras are listed in the description for each bundle, no ads remove is advertised. If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us at
