Star Walk 5.0 Coming with Awesome New Features!

One of my favorite apps (and amongst my first reviews here at iphonelife) is getting a major update and is 2 years old now. Rumor has it we will be doing a Star Walk code giveaway (once V5 is approved), and for 24 hours, you can grab some great astronomy/educational apps for a reduced price. Go grab Geo Walk here (free), and Solar Walk here (99 cents)... Stay tuned for the giveaway, and read on for a list of new features coming to SW.

- AUGMENTED REALITY for new iPod Touch

- SATELLITES - find out where exactly the ISS is right now! (and over 150 satellites)

- Superior PRECISION for iPhone by compass calibration

- TELRAD: advanced feature to help you measure angular distance between nearby stars. Can be turned on/off in Settings menu.

- BIG SCREEN - connect a second display to your iPad and view the sky on it!

- New General Catalogue added (this means MORE deep sky objects, galaxies and nebulae!)

and more!
