Star Walk

Star Walk is your realistic guide for star gazing from your iPhone. Star Walk covers about 9000 stars, planets and constellations and comes with Time Machine and Lunar Phase features.

Whenever you admire the starry night sky, Star Walk helps you to recognize anonymous heavenly bodies. Just find them on your interactive star map and tap i to retrieve useful information, such as celestial coordinates of these heavenly bodies. Don’t be afraid to get overloaded by tons of specific terms. Star Walk is not for scientific use but for learning something new playfully. The cutting-edge graphics and smooth moving/scaling make your work with Star Walk pleasant and easy. You do not need a manual for using Star Walk because of its intuitive interface.

    Star walk needs an exoplanet guide, so that we can know which of the stars we are observing have planets, and the data on those planets, in terms of Au’s, jupiter masses, earth masses, and perpaps probable temperature.
    This will add to the sense of wonder one feels while using the app.
    The exoplanet guide could go right beside ‘solar system’

    Great app!

    I cannot believe this app, I thought it would be a little naff to be honest but am truly blown away.
    I never knew this kind of stuff existed & in my view makes the I-Phone worth having just for that!

    Nice one
