“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

Quite remarkable


Wow. This app is intense in the way that apps can be when someone builds something that, as some other reviews explicitly state: this app looks like a game, but packs some prime science throughout. I’ll bet that most of the users who were thinking they had a new strategy game actually learned something. That’s the kind of thing that makes teaching great. Fortunately your users are not required to respond to, and you are not responsible for a roll whenever some cranks up your app! I’m not sure how that would work,8>)

Freakin Awesome!!

Eranus Banus

This app is a great informative and detailed educational tool. I have already learned some interesting facts about the solar system and the terrestrial planets in it!! Highly recommended for anyone interested in obtaining knowledge regarding our place in the universe!!! One issue is how the sun is depicted in the App Store sample images of the app. The sun does not look like the image!! Not even close.
