I'm 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.
See a quick demo: https://github.com/aornelas/SolarSystem/blob/master/README.md
- 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 and up and down to see their corresponding moons.
- Indicator at side of screen shows how many moons the current planet has.
- To exit the app, long press on the screen. You can also 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:
- 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").
For updated information about what's being worked on see my Issues page: https://github.com/aornelas/SolarSystem/issues
