SkyMap is an amazing planetarium for your windows phone. It enables you to point your phone at the sky and see what stars, constellations, planets or deep space objects are out there in real time.

12/05/2013Great love it
24/04/2013Great app though would be even better if you could turn off the constellation images so that you can see the stars instead with a simple line connecting the constellation stars rather than an overshadowing illustration.
19/04/2013Great app and for free:-)
18/04/2013Great app but spoiled by the unnecessarily intrusive artwork. Can there not be an option to hide it? After all, it's irrelevant to astronomy.
16/04/2013Handy bit of kit for the amateur observer.
06/04/2013Fantastic app. A must have.
