How is it different from Solar Walk?
Solar Walk 2 has all-new graphics, interface and updated planetary textures. Your exploration of the solar system in Solar Walk 2 is guided by a carefully hand picked calendar, a collection of simulations of celestial events with stunning visuals. You can still fly around the solar system and explore it on your own, like in Solar Walk 1, but now you have a comprehensive tour guide at your disposal.

The app contains In-App Purchases (Premium access).
Unlock Premium access to the history of space exploration and man-made spacecraft. Travel with Voyager 1, see how gravity assists helped Cassini get to the outer edges of the solar system, and explore Hubble as if you were right next to it.

Note: Solar Walk users with the app installed on device get unlimited access at a discount.

Great app so far! I have played with it for about a week now and so far I am enjoying it. I also have the first Solar Walk app and well when comparing this to the first one Id have to say graphics are greatly improved, things are more descriptive and overall its very fluid. It works great on the iPad mini original (keep in mind the original iPad mini has same specs as 9.7 inch iPad 2). It does stutter sometimes due to the older processor and 512MB of ram but its nothing that would ruin the great experience for me(: I have also tried this app on my iPad mini 4 and iPhone 6+ and so far I have not noticed any lag. Overall if you are looking for a fun app to kill time or to learn more about our solar system Id have to say this is a great buy for $5.00.

Thank you very much for being our user and for taking the time to share your opinion on our apps with us!

Good app.

Haszard

It’s a really nice app. I mean we have all the planets and all are basic information in are solar system. I love how they just stick to basic objects knowing are planets and many stars we know around us. What I love is that it’s show re current timeline in are planets today or later. I think this Is a really neat app as mulch as star walk. This also puts in the needed things and info about are stars a planets and are sun. As well as star walks did.

I suggest you to look at it. I highly recommended it for those to really have no clue of the solos system, or if you have high knowledge.
