    "The Ultimate Night Sky Guide"

    Star Walk is an amazing and original application appropriate for all ages. The app consists of a highly interactive astronomy guide for fans of astronomy and those interested in learning more about what surrounds us.

    Explore the night sky by moving your device and discover stars, planets, satellites and constellations and immerse yourself completely in the space universe. If you want to know more about something, tap on the bottom information button and discover pictures, a brief explanation and a 360º view of the element you selected.

    Don't forget to search for whatever you wish to explore and use the Sky Live feature to analyze all real data from every planet and star (time of rising, day length, time of setting and elevation). In addition, you will get to use the Time Machine, which allows users to compare the night sky to what it looked before.

    As for the settings, select night mode to preserve night vision and choose if you want the satellites and spectrum bar shown, as well as your preferences for music, sounds, visual magnitude and the way the constellations are presented.

    The graphics are exceptional and the app is comprehensive and extremely rich in details. However, keep in mind that you will need a powerful and big device so as to make a good use of Star Walk.

    Vito Technology is the developer of Star Walk - Astronomy Guide, an impressive guide which you'll get to share with others by publishing pictures in social networks.
