If you are looking to augment your child’s science curriculum… or simply want to see the stars in the sky and haven’t felt fresh air on your face for days due to the prolonged hospitality of ‘Club Med’, this app is amazing! I purchased it for my teenager, who is very much into science, and then couldn’t put it down myself.
As long as Location Services is active for the app, when it’s turned on you will see a gorgeous view of the sky above your area in real time (or anywhere else, for that matter, if you ask it to); stars, constellations, satellites, planets and the like, in stunning color and quality. There are also daily photos and other interesting features.
A fun companion app for a child who enjoys science and space is another produced by the same company: Solar Walk- 3D Solar System Model.
