“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

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.

Wonderful app for children!!


My 8 & 9 year old girls love astronomy and your app allows them to experience the solar system at their own pace. They can twist and spin the planets all they want. They screenshot their favorite pictures and make collages for their bedroom walls. The information is easy to access and understand. Thank you for giving them an application that is entertaining and educational. For all the parents out there; the extra content is inexpensive and the ads are easy to recognize. My girls never accidentally click on an ad. The whole screen changes so they are very aware that it's an ad and to find the X and close it. We have never experienced a crash or any programming problems.

We are so glad you like our app. Thank you very much for the kind words! The only question is: why 4 stars?:)

I love it!


I know I’m only 9 but this app is amazing! I love seeing my favorite places on earth like Florida. I love space and I think this app is great I get to explore the planets however I like. Even though I’m not allowed to get the app purchases that sound really cool I still LOVE IT! I’ve always hoped to explore space and this app lets me 😁.
