By Vito Technology Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Star Walk for Kids is perfect for young space explorers to introduce them to astronomy. With colorful images and friendly narrators, kids can begin to recognize constellations, planets of the solar system and grasp the fundamental principles of astrophysics.
Children usually like bombarding their parents with questions. What shines so bright in the sky? How far is the moon? Can I touch it? With Star Walk Kids app you can easily answer most of the questions connected with astronomy and even show cartoons that will explain some of the phenomena.
If your child asked you at least one of these questions, then Star Walk Kids is for you:
What is the Moon?
Why does day change to night?
How hot is the Sun?
How long is martian year?
Why did we send Hubble to space?
What is a black hole?
What is a constellation?
“A must-have for kids curious about all that surrounds our planet.”
“Extremely well-crafted astronomy tool.”

What's New in Version 2.0.0
Dear Young Astronomers,
Let’s the holiday season be full of magic!
We made a huge update for our Star Walk Kids app and hope you’ll enjoy new cartoons, step by step learning, new Solar System model and iMessage app.
Added a few new cartoons telling about the celestial objects and interesting facts about them. All cartoons have voiceover and are translated to all supported languages.
Explore space step by step
The space exploration is a tough task and we divided this process. The child will learn about the planets gradually, when necessary going back to the learnt material.
Test what you’ve learnt
After finding the object in the sky, listening to the short facts and watching movies, one can test their knowledge of what they learnt.
New interactive model of Solar System unlocks when a child is through the first level.
Animated stickers will bring much fun to any chat in iMessage app.
Team Star Walk
Didn't check the reviews first either. Then the sound didn't work and then it did. Lethargic. Had to reinstall a couple times. Sound didn't work at first like I said. Stalls a lot. Have to restart the app. Needs updates....
Worked for 5 minutes, then crashed
DO NOT BUY (until they fix it). Worst $3 I've ever spent. My 5 year old loves Solar Walk, so I thought this would be good to give him an age-appropriate approach. It worked for five minutes, then crashed. Can't get back in (crashes after intro screen). Looks like it could be a good program, but they obviously haven't put the work in that's needed to support its functionality.
I cannot believe how terrible this update is. My son and I used to enjoy finding constellations that were shaped and drawn so if you could appreciate them. Now they change the whole thing and they make you do stupid games and watch dumb cartoons instead of being able to look at the night sky and find constellations. I don't understand why there's not a menu to be able to just look at constellations and not to their stupid test do not download this.
