'Solar Journey' takes you on a fascinating virtual tour of our solar system's extraordinary planets. The user interface is carefully designed to guide the viewer in learning about the characteristics of planets, their key parameters, and viewing high resolution images where available. Having this data in one app will help university students as well as enthusiasts in satisfying their thirst for knowledge and curiosity. The app covers a significant portion of space and planetary science curriculum of freshman year of college. In addition, the app offers short quizzes based on the content, helping users review the subject matter and remember key information.

Precedents

This app uniquely incorporates college level planetary science content into an interface that is intuitive and delightful. Many of the other apps, in this area, display standard description and facts, and fail to challenge users through quizzes. Educational apps with features that satisfy curiosity and spark the imagination are used more often than those which fall short. Satatistics for this app shows that users return to it often and thus may be finding it useful.
