“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

Star walk. A walk thru the universe.

You come to grips very early in the use of the program just how small we are on this fast canvas we call the universe. The graphics are reworked and is very pleasing. I would however like to have the ability to see where the sun is overhead in a season, whether its on an equinox or a solstice, or anywhere in between.

In formation is well layed out and easy to find. In all a great app, i love it.

Out of this world

After reading the reviews, I hoped I wasn't going to be disappointed with the graphics & that I'd at least get some kind of basic interactive perspective on how everything fits together out there. Well, let me tell you; if you're fussy like me & want to be blown away by an application that delivers on every level, this is worth every penny and more. Truly unbelievable!

Wow!

I did not expect an app that would exceed my expectations. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is interested in what is going on up there. It makes everything more relevant and easy to get to grips with. Both from an interface point of view and a graphics point of view. The developers have really gone the extra mile on this one!
