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.

    What the...??? Installed this several weeks ago and it worked well; TMI if anything. Tonight it crashed as soon as I started it. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Now it asks permission to use location info before crashing. Leaving it installed in hope of an update. So now it's working. Updated while I wasn't looking? Whatever. Seems to be working well now although TMI comment still holds. I may understand this app in a couple of years ... after I get a degree in astronomy. 😊
