Im writing this app since my 2-year-old daughter is an amateur astronomer and I figured Android Wear was a great way to let her explore the Solar System without the many distractions phone or tablet apps usually have.Features:- Beautiful real photographs of our Sun, the planets and moons displayed individually in full screen.- Easy to use: simply swipe back and forth to see the different planets.- Indicator at bottom of screen shows where you currently are; can be dismissed by swiping down.
NOTE: To exit the app, cover the watch with your palm or press the side button.
I plan to expand the content and features often, with the following coming soon:- Moons will be displayed under their planets, instead of alongside them (so horizontal navigation does not increase as moons are added).- More moons and other Solar System objects.- Tap to reveal info card with quick facts such as: distance from Sun, gravity, and fun fact (e.g., "the hottest planet in the solar system").
