Best Space & Astronomy apps for iPad

Reviews

There’s something about certain apps complementing an iPad - and apps about the universe, space and time and astronomy are one such type of app. Some of the display layouts of these latest scientific apps simply take your breath away and the following apps are perfect for any space enthusiast. Solar System
Best Space & Astronomy Apps for iPadPrice: $13.99 Current version rating: 4.5/5 from 101 With beautiful 3D objects, movies, images, animations and more, the author Marcus Chowns takes you through the heavens with some simply stunningly mouth watering space tours that are a pleasure to sit back and take in while unknowingly educating yourself. From 150 + story pages and over 40 rotatable and zoomable - pinchable HD 3D graphics, and 600 exceptionally chosen images, you get to see planets and stars like the sun and the moons taken from NASA, JAXA and ESA missions. Each image contains either a caption or an infographic that sometimes a hardback book just can’t replicate. In this case Solar System app based on the novel “About US” comes with accompanying music and sounds with pin sharp imagery that probably puts this scientific app for iPads in the tops 5 so far to date. The user ratings speak for themselves.   NASA Television
Best Space & Astronomy Apps for iPadPrice: Free Latest version rating: 4/5 from 78 This app basically gives you the latest streaming news from the NASA space center, where you can get up close minute by the minute reporting from the latest shuttle launch which when streamed live to the iPad is pretty impressive – plus news, videos and imagery from the inside NASA space camp. NASA provides a weekly TV schedule so you can check out listings in advance. User reviews are good and short – It’s free also!   HubbleSite
Best Space & Astronomy Apps for iPadPrice: Free Latest version rating: 3.5/5 Keeping with NASA for just one more app, HubbleSite – if you’re a Hubble junky lets you choose the best images of the celestial splendors with the latest version of this app including 50 new images to their slideshow, a redesigned science project, missions and facts, and a performance optimized interface. On the plus side this app does provide you with monstrously sized visually rich imagery but because the app is 65mb and there is very other little informative facts or information it’s only really worth downloading if you just want to look at the pics and make a few comments.   Journey to the ExoPlanets
Best Space & Astronomy Apps for iPadPrice: $9.99 Latest version rating: 4.5/5 If you want to go and explore the solar system yourself, then this app kind of lets you do this. You get tons of images all pretty stunning, along with an audio tour guide to teach you about what you’re seeing and where you’re heading. This app gets mixed reviews but has received some very notable prizes, but whatever your take on reviews  by far the best part to this app is getting to choose which planet to land on where you can go and explore the surface in graphical splendour.   Star Walk for iPad
Best Space & Astronomy Apps for iPadPrice: $4.99 Latest customer rating:                 4.5/5 from 29 We’ve just had a partial solar eclipse and most of us when we hear about such events normally react thinking – “if only I’d known about it!” Well, with Star Walk for iPad you can, but it does a whole lot more. It will teach you all the constellations in incredible graphics that only the iPad right now can deliver. With real time motion tracking you can take it anywhere and it will tell you the constellations in the sky so great for some romantic camping! – plus all the celestial events on the calendar, and loads more. Only drawback is that they changed the old eerie music to something less spacelike.   Reprinted courtesy of www.Apppicker.com
