Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.

Our picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every week. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.

This week’s pick is Star Walk™ 2 – Guide to the Night Sky to Watch Stars, Planets, Meteor Showers & Constellations by Vito Technology Inc. Star Walk 2 is a great tool for the every backyard astronomer who loves to gaze at the sky with wonder.  With the help of Star Walk 2, you will be able to identify and learn the position of all the planets, comets, stars and satellites in the sky.  Available as a universal app that works across all iOS devices, Star Walk 2 has many features that make it a joy to use…


All-new stunning design:
– New simpler and cleaner interface in vibrant colors for retina displays
– Atmospheric visual and sound effects, stirring soundtrack
– Exclusive handcrafted artwork for constellations, inspired by minimalist low-poly art

Incredible 3D models of celestial bodies*:

– Constellations
– Dwarf planets, comets, and asteroids
– Man-made satellites
– Layer by layer planets and missions


Using Star Walk 2 is as easy as pointing your iPad, or other iOS device, at the sky to reveal what lies beyond.  You’ll be able to follow along in real-time using your iPad’s built-in gyroscope to display on your screen to the stars and planets as seen from your location.  In addition, you can search for objects, and Star Walk 2 will show you which way in the sky to look to view them.

Here’s an App Store link for Star Walk™ 2.  Currently offered as Apple’s free App of the week, now is the perfect time to download  and start discovering what celestial objects are in the skies above where you live.  There are additional in-app purchases available within the app.  However, while the app is currently free, now is the perfect time to pay the extra $3 to add ALL additional available content to your experience.
