Remember building a solar system in high school? Cups and papier-mache balls are in the past, because Solar Walk is an interactive orrery that shows all planets and satellites of the solar system in their correct positions in real time.

This 3D solar system model lets you navigate between planets, see their positions on a specific date, explore how they move and why. You will see the entire Milky Way galaxy from a far and zoom in to study all the planets and satellites in close-up, learn their trajectories, inner structures, history of their exploration, and geography.

Every planet has extensive information: size, mass, orbital velocity, exploratory missions, thickness of structural layers, and composition of atmosphere.

“Can’t-miss app.” - Mashable

“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.”

“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

High res maps - crushing the app!

After upgrading to latest version of paid app I've found there are missing features, and few paid new options. As I liked this app in the past I did't think to long and I've paid and upgraded maps to high res just to find that my ipad2 crashes each time I try to explore high-res Earth maps. I'll wait a week to see if you guys can sort it out otherwise I'll request full refund. Great app and idea however very poor app stability (I couldn't purchase new high res maps for over a week, now I can't explore it, shocking)

Solar Walk OK But not the Hi Resolution Bundle

I purchased the hi res bundle but it took hours to download just a few % of the program. Contacted Vito Technology and asked for their assistance but just had a stock answer about running Solar Walk whilst downloading to get the hi res bundle. Got so fed up with this download had to delete it . Asked for for a refund or a link so that I can try to download it again but have been ignored. Vito Technology seem not to care about customer satisfaction and consequently I advise any potential customers to beware of this lot and I will never ever use them again.
They are on my personal BLACKLIST.

Massive backward step

This app was one of the reasons I bought my iPad. I paid for the app and at least one in app purchase. Today, I paid for the hi-res planets only to find that previously accessible features have disappeared. Shame on you! For an app taking up 1Gbyte on my iPad, its days are numbered.
