3 Apps in This Bundle
Not latest versions
The apps look amazing, but as soon as I buy this bundle I find out there are x.2 versions of each app! Why not set this bundle with the latest versions? It makes no sense, and now makes me doubt if I should pay again for the latest versions.
Misleading bundle! REQUIRES OTHER PURCHASES FOR FULL FUNCTIONALITY!
Disappointed, to say the least.
The bundle looks attractive, especially if you already own one of the items. However, it turns out that to make full use of he included Sky Live, you need to own Star Walk 2, which is not the version included here!
What happens is that Sky Live will let you know that, say, the International Space Station will be in the sky this evening. It provides an arrow labeled "Sky" to take you to a sky view showing where the ISS will be. But it doesn't link to Star Walk 1, which is included in this bundle, but to Star Walk 2, which is not included!
Worse, even if you install Star Walk 2, you immediately discover that several of its key features such as Deep Space Objects, the Moon, the planets, and satellites require *additional* purchases!
In other words, this bundle is NOT a stand alone; one of its key apps is not fully functional without buying more--and more!
If you look at the reviews for Star Walk 2, you'll see several unhappy campers who owned SW 1, upgraded to SW 2 but discovered the new app had fewer features and they were being nickel-and-dimed for these add-ones, features that were previously included with the purchase price!
It's a real shame as the apps themselves are pretty good. (Those more into amateur astronomy should really get Sky Safari Plus or Pro.)
Solar Walk provides a 3-D fly through of the solar system in which you can visit the different planets and see their moons in an orrery fashion going round them. To get an idea of what it does, download and try out the free Solar Walk, which includes only Saturn. That will let you know if it's worth pursuing Solar Walk itself or this bundle.
One thing worth noting is that the moon sizes seem off in Solar Walk 1-- Io is wrongly shown much bigger than Jupiter's other major moons. Saturn's moons suffer a similar fate with Titan not being the largest. I do not know if they fixed that in Solar Walk 2.
Finally, as another reviewer pointed out, each of these apps now has a version 2, so you are buying yesterday's bread!
A similar bundle with all version 2s would be much better, especially if they included more of the features that came with Star Walk 1 and stopped most of the tawdry add-on biz.
