Star Walk 2 – Guide to the Sky Day and Night
Star Walk, an award winning app that is used by over 10 million people across the world is back with an updated and redesigned interface that takes star gazing to a completely new level. The new UI is cleaner with vibrant colors for retina displays. It is an astronomy guide that includes 3D models of planetary nebulae, constellations, dwarf planets, comets, asteroids, and man made satellites. You can view the star groups as officially recognized constellations or see them as separate entities. The visuals are complemented by historical and mythological articles related to it.
To study the stars, simply hold the phone up and point it to the sky. The app uses the built-in gyroscope to match the map on your screen to the stars seen from your location. You can also get information on any star, constellation or satellite by tapping Search and the app will guide you to look for it in the desired direction.
The app also provides daily data on the moon phase, time of sunset and sunrise and elevation of the planets. You can also see how the sky will look like at any time in the future. A special night time soft red mode will enable you to see the sky in X ray and 5 other filter modes.
Star Walk 2 is available at $2.99 but to get the full comprehensive value of the app, you will need to buy the add-on packs, which will cost you an additional $1.99. Whether you are an astronomy buff or wish to teach your kids the wonders of the skies, this one’s a great must have app guide.
