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.

    Excellent App for beginners in astronomy. Lets you find major celestial objects with ease.

    I expected this app to track where you look and have a detailed map. Its a passable map with an inelegant UI. Just poor user experience compared to others

    This app is amazing and very cool! It is simply one of the best apps of any category on any platform. It is that good. And worth the very reasonable price of admission. Buy it and see the universe unfold from any vantage point you want!

    Best app of its kind! *Very* well written. Only app I've ever purchased in my life, and after trying the free version I had to get it.
