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.
SkyMap shows the sky in 3D, like you see it at night time exposing a collection of over 110000 stars.
It’s very easy to use for any viewpoint, time and location on Earth: it determines your location automatically, supports pinch to zoom for more details and provides a highly customizable map.

    Skymap is not a useful app for astronomers to locate objects in the sky, as stated in the description, because it plots objects in an altitude/azimuth coordinate system rather than the standard right ascension/declination coordinates of the celestial sphere used in astronomy and all equatorial telescopes. However the charts are beautiful, accurate and educational for the non-astronomer for visual observing.
