Way Cool Learning Tool

This App, combined with a Merge Cube is a fantastic learning tool with the following issue:
If you hold your phone in one hand and the cube in your other hand, it is difficult to click to expand on an individual planet. Also, this App does not work with VR Headset Remotes. You must either have a headset with a button that can touch the screen for you, have to pull out the phone to touch the screen manually.

Cool and fun!

I love seeing and learning about the planets especially when you are holding it. This app is super cool you should get it😀

Inaccurate

The app is cool, but the orbit of the planets is not correct. I suggest they fix this issue as it would make the app much more enjoyable knowing that your looking at an exact replica of the solar system.

Developer Response

Hi ZiekeZILLA, we debated for a while about how to best do the orbits... the truth is that to show the orbits correctly, even at a greatly reduced scale, it becomes very difficult to see some of the outer planets. Ultimately it led to a great amount of UX problems, and we decided that showing relative scale and distance was a better approach. It's a great teaching opportunity to show kids that even though this is what you see, the actual scale is MUCH different!
