Star Walk 1.2 for iPhone
VITO Technology says it has added meteor shower data and other updates to its iPhone stargazing app. Star Walk 1.2 now includes links to Wikipedia articles on planets, stars and other celestial bodies. The company says it has also improved the way stars are displayed, so that larger, brighter stars appear more distinct in comparison to smaller ones.
The meteor shower feature allows users to set the date of a particular shower, and view it with the ability to zoom in on moving objects. Star Walk uses 3D graphics and location-based data to help users locate planets, stars and constellations. The $5 title is available now at the App Store.
