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.

    Needs improvement... Compass is always slightly off and zoom causes it to freeze and restart the app. Other than that its great. Almost as good as Google Sky

    Been using this excellent app for months. Has given me an easy way to find my novice's way around the night sky. Like other reviewers, I felt I had to support the developers so I bought the full version. Hope others also give them the support they deserve. Excellent work.

    Absolutely incredible!! Beautiful app!! Wish it could be projected in some manner like the new iPhones. You deserve the accolades that would bring. Well worth the little money and I hope you make millions! Thanks, keep the updates coming.

    This is the first app I recommend people buy for their Windows phones.

    SkyMap is a very useful tool if you want to look at the constellations, I like how it is real time and the fact that all you have to do is point your phone in the area you want to look at and the app will show you what is currently in the sky. Best app I have used so far.
