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.

One of the Best Astronomy Apps There Is

Ace Combat Legend

i don't typically write reviews, but this app is more than worthy. There's so much to say about it and what makes it amazing, so let's begin, shall we?

First off, the visuals are absolutely spectacular. Incredibly well rendered graphics are the biggest part of this. The planets look phenomenal, and the numerous probes that are featured look stunning. On a personal note, I really like the anti-aliasing that they used on the app.

Next is the music. Not many songs are good for space exploration, but the music in this app is perfect. The hauntingly ethereal music really adds an extra layer of depth to the already beautiful app. Space exploration is definitely made better with it.

Lastly is the sheer amount of information presented about each celestial object. Semi-Axial tilt, surface temperature, gravity, mass, etc. is all present in almost every labeled object in the game. The physics of the Solar System is accurately measured too. If you go to April 8th, 2024, you can even see the path of the 2024 Solar Eclipse!

All in all, this is a spectacular app, and if you're a fan of astronomy and exploration, then it's definitely for you.

Looks nice but information is outdated

Even New Horizons mission is at least 2 years out of date. Wish the developers kept up on updating the mission statuses. Also the sun surface is incorrect due to being perfectly uniform with no sun spots. The zoom is ridiculous as it steps in and out in huge steps instead of continuously. You can’t view binary stars because of the zoom.

Great info, But!

The first version I downloaded had ads. I bought the primum upgrade just to find out this upgrade did not include removing the ads and there was no way to buy the option within the app. So now I buy the version with no ads but you can't restore the primum upgrade with this version, it's asking me to purchase it again. After being bamboozled so many times buying apps you would think I would learn. I'm bad!
