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.

    Great app. Wish I could look down at my phone instead of holding it over my head.

    Not accurate. Orion is easy to find in the sky. When I pointed my phone in the direction of Orion, it was a different constellation. I do not trust the accuracy of this app after seeing this.

    Excellent. Wish other planet's moons were also displayed...perhaps I missed how to make them show...but excellent even without it.

    Even better if my phone had a compass

    Great App!!! I used this to find Jupiter at night. Works perfect for the ameteur astronomer.
