StarWalk for the iPad

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 08:00 AM

Star Walk for the iPhone from Vito Technology has been out for awhile, and I've used it many times to see what was going on in the sky above me. It is a fantastic astronomy app for the iPhone, so I was pretty excited when they announced the version for the iPad. It is available now in the iTunes Store for $4.99 USD [affiliate link], and if you have used Star Walk for the iPhone ($2.99 USD in the iTunes Store), this will be very familiar to you, albeit on a much larger scale. The app really transitions well from the iPhone to the iPad, and in my opinion is much better on the iPad as it uses the larger screen to full advantage. As you can see from the opening screen above, called the "Sky Live", it starts out by giving you a brief overview of what is happening in the sky above you for a particular day, including sunrise, sunset, moon phase, etc. But it also offers much more, with the 3D graphics you are used to on the iPhone on a larger scale.

Contest Time! Win a Copy of Star Walk!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 07:00 AM

We posted a news story on this nifty program about a week ago (sorry the Valentine's Day greetings are no longer part of the program) and now the great folks over at Star Walk are giving away 3 copies of this program to our readers (US iTunes customers only, sorry). This is a great program, and especially so if you can take advantage of all the features by having an iPhone 3GS. To enter, simply reply to this post. Simple as that. The contest ends at midnight Pacific time February 28th 2010. Remember, if you are new to the forums, give it 72 hours for your post to show up.

And, in case you missed it, we still have the contest going for a copy of PixyMe. Same rules, just reply to the thread to enter. Good luck everyone!

A new special feature has been added to the sky of Star Walk and will be available only for the St. Valentine's weekend.

This is a fantastic program and now updated for special Valentine's Day greetings (sorry, these greetings have expired!) You can get more info at the Star Walk website, or checkout this review for a pretty good run through of the program. iTunes Store has it available for $2.99 USD

"6th of November 2009 Star Walk hits one year old at AppStore! And we'd like to invite you and your readers to participate in celebration of the 1st birthday. ONLY this day the price of Star Walk will be 5 times less than usual! It will cost only $0.99! Besides we hold an Astronomy Quiz on our blog with numerous presents like iTunes gift cards, Star Walk T-shirts and redeem codes (for those who don't own Star Walk yet)."

The excerpt above was from an email I received, which I read as November 6th being the sale day but on iTunes it shows that is already is on sale for $0.99 USD. You can also get more info from the Star Walk site or check out the blog to participate in the contest.
