How is it different from Solar Walk?
Solar Walk 2 has all-new graphics, interface and updated planetary textures. Your exploration of the solar system in Solar Walk 2 is guided by a carefully hand picked calendar, a collection of simulations of celestial events with stunning visuals. You can still fly around the solar system and explore it on your own, like in Solar Walk 1, but now you have a comprehensive tour guide at your disposal.
The app contains In-App Purchases (Premium access).
Unlock Premium access to the history of space exploration and man-made spacecraft. Travel with Voyager 1, see how gravity assists helped Cassini get to the outer edges of the solar system, and explore Hubble as if you were right next to it.
Note: Solar Walk users with the app installed on device get unlimited access at a discount.
