Star Walk is a wonderful program that allows you to find just about anything you want in a slick interface and beautiful graphics. Star Walk shines (no pun intended) on the iPhone and iPod Touch, but if you want the ultimate experience then you must get this program for the iPad. Stargazing takes on a whole new meaning with the ten-inch screen and HD interface. You will never again wonder what that bright orange star or that fuzzy little cloud in that tiny corner of the night sky is ever again with a searchable database, night mode for viewing outside and on location, ability to show the constellation shapes and lines, a fantastic digital compass, a full-sky 180 degree display, a toggle for showing many stars or just a few, and so much more. Star Walk also gives you daily stats like sunrise and sunset, visible planets, moon phases, and much, much more. The iPhone version (see the link below) is also recommended and is a great program too, but you miss out on the iPad's crisper graphics and roomier screen.

What is it about?

Star Walk is the most beautiful stargazing app you’ve ever seen on a mobile device. It will become your go-to interactive astro guide to the night sky, following your every movement in real-time and allowing you to explore over 200, 000 celestial bodies with extensive information about stars and constellations that you find.

Duran Duran's keyboard Nick Rhodes mentions Star Walk as his favorite app:

"With the Star Walk app, if you hold your iPod up towards the sky, you can see all the stars and constellations. It even tells you the names of all the planets. Then, if you point it towards the ground, it shows you what all the stars are in the other hemisphere. It’s brilliant, and if you’re ever somewhere with a clear sky and no light pollution, it’s a revelation. It’s beautifully designed and makes clever use of the available technology. I’m fascinated by astronomy, but even if you’re not, give this a go."
