Star Walk Kids: Astronomy App for Children
We are all fascinated with the stars and objects in the sky. Teaching your young children about them is certainly not a bad idea. But you should use the right kind of material and apps to keep their attention. Star Walk Kids can help. It is an educational tool with an enchanting user interface that aims to get your child familiar with what they see in the sky. All they need to do is point their phone toward the sky to have the star map show up on it.
Star Walk Kids follows your motion using the built-in gyroscope in your phone. It has a cartoon-style interface and voice narration. Your children get to learn more about the objects in the sky, watch short animated films, and learn enough to become ready for the adult version of Star Walk. The app does not contain any in-app purchases or 3rd party ads, so parents can share it with their children with peace of mind.
Star Walk Kids is not for everyone. It does have a kid-friendly interface that might keep your child interested for a longer period of time. We like the original Star Walk app much better though.
