"It is the most comprehensive and innovative set of tools for astronomy yet. Cutting-edge technology inside your iPhone allows our stargazing guide to follow your motions with incredible precision to detect slightest angle changes as we match the sky on your screen to what is in front of you at the moment," says Olga Shtaub, Head of Marketing.
Vito Technology introduces two bundles: Stargazing Pack (Star Walk 2, Sky Live, Solar Walk) that serves as an introduction to astronomy as well as a helper to inveterate stargazers and Family Stargazing (Star Walk 2, Star Walk Kids, Sky Live) tailored for child-and-parent learning.

Star Walk Kids features hand-picked information to inspire children to learn about space. Browsing across the sky with live motion tracking, the young users can tap on any object they find to learn its name, size relative to the Sun, distance, and what it is known for. Selected objects are explained in short animated films voiced by professional actors. Users will learn what Polaris is, how to find it on the night sky, and how to determine cardinal directions on the spot, and much more.
