Description

INTRODUCTORY LOW PRICE until additional features are added.

3D Planets is a real-time 3D view of the planets within our Solar System.

It uses a very intuitive interface to allow you to easily select, rotate around and zoom into the different planets.

Simply click on a planet to bring it into full view. Sweep your finger to rotate around the planet, and pinch to zoom in and out.

We will be releasing updates of this app based on user feedback, adding features asked for.

v1.1 has just been released, with the following new features that we promised.

- More optimised rendering ( a LOT faster on older iPhones especially )

- Show and rotate around the cutaway core of each planet

- Correct pinch / zoom gesture

- Updated icon and loading screen.

For v1.2, we're in the process of adding in the planet information - maybe on 2 levels, one which is overview information ( distance from sun, radius etc ), and one which includes more detailed information ( verbose text descriptions, perhaps from Wikipedia )

Enjoy, and feel free to rate and give feedback regarding what you would like to see in future updates.

Our aim is to have the best interactive solar system app available, based on community feedback and our own on-going in-house development. A future v1.2+ will include as many of these changes as possible.

Feedback on version 1.0

:
It needs much more but it's an ok start.
Feedback:
Orbits would be good (animation better).
Tapping for planet info (rocky vs gas, size, year/day, moons, named features, volcanoes etc.)
Asteroid belt?
Pluto is debatable as a planet (see Ask An Astronomer podcast by NASA).
Putting the whole solar system to scale may not be possible but at least do the earth and its moon.
Space missions associated with the various planets (historical aspect as an addition - year of discovery and person who discovered it for example).
Position of the planets based upon a specific date that you input.

These are just some ideas off the top of my head. Right now this is very static. I look forward to your updates.

Can't believe they had the nerve to charge

:
This app is basically nothing but all the planets in a straight line. Needs orbits at minimum.

0/5 stars

Empty promises!

:
*** this app promised much more updates but haven't updated in over 6 months and the only update was to show the cores of the planets, wow. I can't believe apple allows people to make crappy apps with promises to keep updating and when people buy it they abandon their program leaving everyone being ripped off. This is a scam apple should start fining companies for creating these scams!
We should Also get our money back!***

Graphics are terrible, zooming in is confusing because it the opposite of safari and there is no detail on the planets. Save your 99 cents and get something better.
