Star Walk for iPad – the app that serves as an interactive astronomy guide – was updated yesterday, to Version 5.2. The update is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of human space flight.
New in this latest version are:
• CALENDAR of Celestial Events: plan stargazing without leaving your favorite app
• SEARCH through all the categories at once
• NEW SKY: true-to-life picture of the skies with glittering stars
• AUGMENTED reality
• Moon bug fix: now you can track all the Sun eclipses as precise as never before!
• Smoother design of control buttons
• Bug fix
This is yet another stellar (no pun intended) app that does not rest on its laurels, and keeps adding cool new features.
Here’s an App Store link for Star Walk for iPad; it’s priced at $4.99.
