    Could someone please ID the Astronomy/Constellation App that is shown in the iPad commercials?

    There are actually TWO in the App store under TV apps. Ha! I think it is Starwalk for the iPad, but I thought I'd ask the helpful folks here first!

    Thanks & Merry Christmas!

    It is StarWalk

    We had a little clear night last night and I was able to use the app. This makes the iPad a really amazing compass.

    Pointing to another post on Astro apps isnt going to help answer the question of "what app was on the tv commercial"

    If you go on the iPad and bring up the iPad App Store and go to the Featured Page then scroll down to the bottom there will be a button for "Apps from iPad TV Ads". Search there. It appears that Solar Walk and Star Walk were both featured on TV Ads.

    OK, lemme try again... :D

    In one of the iPad TV ads they show a person holding the iPad up to the night sky, and the iPad is showing the constellations that are in that area of the sky.

    The other TV ad app is just showing planets in the solar system.

    WHICH app is the first one, the one that is shown being held up to the night sky????

    THANKS!!! :D

    I don't have either - don't know which does what, but I am not going to read and regurgitate the same thing you can read on your own.

    Star walk display moves as you move the iPad around so you can scan the sky above you with the constellations clearly displayed. You can also pinch and expand to adjust the detail. Awesome app for the money.

    lol Just held it up to Centaurus and a tiny santa and sleigh has gone past......

    Best one by far is Luminos without question but I believe the one in the commercial is Starwalk (its kind of cute for little kids but thats about it)

    Just curious what you think makes Luminous better that Starwalk? I haven't found much info about Luminous yet... and no direct comparisons either.
