    "Navigating the solar system"

    Orrery is a unique 3D application that allows users to explore the solar system in a very accessible way, perfect for young students taking astronomy classes or people who're just curious about what's out there.

    Whenever you launch the app, you will have a detailed and rich vision of the solar system and its planets, a scenery which you can easily navigate by pinching in and out and double tapping the elements to know more about them. However, that's not the only thing you can do: from the main screen you can activate high quality, music, showing asteroids and trails and even choose the orbital speed which is definitely a curious and enjoyable feature.

    Although we gladly enjoyed being able to visit and explore the surface of Mercury, Mars, Venus and the Moon, the app would improve its global use if we could just access to all the planets and not just a few of them.

    Graphics are well-developed, realistic and undoubtedly its best feature. trideon.de is the developer of Orrery, their first application, available in English and German, a highly interesting app that is way different from other merely informational apps related to astronomy.
