Star Walk for iOS offers interactive astronomy guide


There has been an explosion in recent times with the amount of mobile applications that are educational but offer that little bit more to the user, and that can be certainly said about the Star Walk application for iOS users that offers an interactive astronomy guide using augmented reality.

The company responsible for the application, Vito Technology has recently announced a major upgrade to its Star Walk app, which allows users to spot over 200,000 items found in the night sky such as planets, satellites, and much more.

This new version of the app now includes a stargazing calendar that will allow the viewing of all visible celestial events in a user’s area. The handy astronomy guide will show objects in their exact positions on the sky directly above with all that is needed to know about them.

There is now also the option of tracking four comets, Halley, ISON, PANSTARRS, and Lemmon with users being able to pick out the comets in the night sky with all the information on them provided. There is also information and reminders when the comets will be visible with ISON expected to arrive in November of this year.

No internet connection is needed to enjoy the application that is available on the App Store for only £1.99/$2.99, and check out the demo video we have embedded below for more information.
