“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:

► Observe the 3D model of our Solar system with all its objects in real time and in a proper orientation. Turn into an astronomer and explore planets, moons, satellites, asteroids, dwarf planets, comets, stars and other celestial bodies. Enjoy gorgeous graphics and visuals while navigating through the solar system.

► Make virtual flights from one space object to another.

► 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 Earth's moon phases, Earth's cycles, tidal phenomena, and zodiacal constellations.

► Enjoy 3D planetarium with the help of special glasses and activating the anaglyph mode.

► Share interesting screenshots of the app with your friends.

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

The app contains In-App Purchases.

Solar Walk is a great educational tool appropriate for both adults and children. The amount of information users can learn about the planets, moons, satellites and other celestial bodies is impressive. All information is age-appropriate and detailed.

Extrasolar planets!

I have had this app for years, and I haven’t seen any significant changes to this app. It is great on its own; an encyclopedia about our cosmic home. And, to keep users up with news about this home, you could add a “news” section, talking about all the updates on the solar system. Maybe you could talk about what scientists think about life in Jovian or Saturnian moons. You could talk about the future mission to Uranus. You could talk about Artemis!

I also wish this app encompassed star systems outside of the Sun. We could learn about the Alpha Centauri system and its 3 stars, the Fomalhaut system and its dust ring, and so much more. Also, I want to learn a bit more about our Milky Way as a whole. Its satellite galaxies, the Sagittarius Stream, etc. This app has incredible potential, I’m disappointed that it hasn’t moved forward so much

I think this app could become a great resource for astronomy in general, not just for our solar system.

Suggestions-please update

I know a lot of stars some of them I don't know and there is one that I haven't seen on this and it's name is U I scuti you can rea-search it on google. (information: U I scuti is the largest star in the galaxy. It's going to explode soon in the years that people call the future and please add black holes) and then there is a planet called Proxima B and also please add it to the map.( information : the planet has 3 suns its main one is a red dwarf star. The other 2 are regular stars. When all the sun's light is put together its still is not bright enough to be brighter then the sun. The planet is all ways facing the red dwarf star and if you want to die then you can this is your dream place you will die from not enough sleep. Killing someone in a ceremony would be easy here)

Thank you for the suggestion!

Quite remarkable

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:)
