WHAT IT DOES:

Star Walk enables you to point your iPhone at the sky and see what stars, constellations, and satellites you are looking at in real-time. Please note, you will need a 3GS/4/4th gen iPod Touch for motion tracking, otherwise this app will be just a beautiful info-packed time-sensitive interactive star atlas that allows you to set your location manually to give you the most accurate picture.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY:

I have over 200 apps on my phone and this is one of the best.
by BRETICUS

HUGE wow factor just like the others have said. It was awesome before, but the new update made it even better!

Kids think I know everything in the sky now! by Davincimv

If you want your sense of wonder back, this is your app. With 11 months experience on the iPhone 3GS and 14 years as a network administrator, I feel that Starwalk is one of the most beautiful, well-designed applications I've ever seen. It's also inspiring and fun, which are the real reasons I purchased it. It was recommended by a reviewer at the NY Times.
