StarWalk Kids

Reviewed on 11/28/14

Have you ever looked up to the night sky and wondered whether that one really bright spot right over there was a planet or a star or …. maybe something else?  Do you know how to identify any of the constellations other than the “Big Dipper?” Would you like to be able to point out exactly where the Hubble Telescope is currently in orbit? StarWalk for Kids answers all of these questions and many more. Using the built-in gyroscope, the app shows you a map of the stars, planets, constellations in relation to your current position. The app is also packed with tons of great scientific information about astronomy and mythology (in relation to the constellations), all shared in a variety of written and spoken word, kid-friendly cartoon illustrations, and a few animated video explanations.
