[prMac.com] Houston, Texas - Announcing that Pears Concept Ltd., the developers of Astronomy Walk, has released a rare new product for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Astronomy Walk is a new launch that has been many months in the making. Users are able to test their knowledge or learn about astronomy by answering any of over 490 multiple choice quiz questions on topics such as Constellations, Earth, Universe and more. The app tracks test results and displays them in HTML format, which can be emailed. There is also a Progress Meter showing a bar graph of progress. This is an application that has taken many months of intense research and development to bring to market.
Users are treated to fascinating facts about astronomy topics such as:
* Stars and Constellations

* The Solar System
* The Moon
* The Great Astronomers
The app utilizes a testing concept, offering users more than 490 multiple choice questions for challenging their existing knowledge of astronomy, as well as teaching them about things they don't already know.
As far as the quiz, a.k.a. the test, goes, users can choose their questions from specified topic categories or let the computer issue randomly selected questions from across all topics. The number of questions per test and whether or not sound effects are enabled is up to the user to decide.
When a test is completed, Astronomy Walk shows the user how they did in HTML format. Users can email the results themselves so they can track their progress over time.
