My Favorite Space App – Fun & Educational!

Leave a comment

Ever struggled to explain the magnificent size and beauty of our solar system to a child? Or know someone fascinated by the sky? The interactive Solar Walk app makes it easy and fun to explore and understand the solar system. You can navigate through the planets and stars while viewing knowledge on planet’s exploration history, stunning photos, 3D models, videos and more. Users can travel from Mars to Pluto and see all the planets and moons on the way. The app gives a sense of how vast the solar system is and what’s in it.

One of my favorite features is the slider and clock. You can watch Mars rotate, or create a view to watch the planets rotate around the Sun.   There’s even a video that explains the concept of an eclipse.

ImageSolar Walk was an Apple Best App of 2010, 2011, and 2012 and has received awards from parent and teacher organizations. It provides a great experience for children studying the solar system, or for anyone discovering an interest in Astronomy.

For $2.99 in the App Store, you’ll have a wonderful “game” to pull up the next time a child asks to play with your iPad or iPhone.
