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.

    Muito interessante mais como a maioria dos bons programas e aplicativos esquecem que nem todos sabem ou entendem inglês poderia vir em português. Mais claro que não se preocupam com o Brasil afinal na mente de muitos locais aqui so tem floresta e macaco.

    Highly customizable and simply amazing. Very cool how the sky map moves as you scan the sky with your phone. Very useful search feature that puts a target marker on what planet, star, or constellation you want to see. Highly recommended. Well done!
