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.

    Love this app. It is very helpful in finding the constellations, I'm a novice at this and I feel like a pro with this app. I have been able to help some of my grandchildren with their homework assignments,they love it too.

    Simply and beautifully done! Exactly what I was looking for.

    The spatial accuracy is good (a little off) and the overall quality is very good.

    My specific phone is not capable of utilizing the left /right tracking feature but does allow the vertical (or up/down) feature. However that is only because of my phone. It is relatively simple to use and has great features besides the tracking. You can dim out the amount of stars in the virtual sky so as to match what you see for your location based on ambient light such as city light interference or places with little light interference like mountainous areas or the like. You can also have the artist overlay for the constellations or disable it. It has helped me find several planets so I could set my telescope to it. If your phone is limited like mine just know the general direction you want to view a star at and drag left or right to that area. Now move your phone up and down until the "sight or bulls eye dot" is in line with what you want. You can then touch the object on screen to get information about that star or planet. It's a real nice app. You won't be disappointed.

    Really good for finding planets that your friends think might be really bright stars. More seriously, great to have magnitude control to adjust the star tracker to what stars you can actually see. Nice to sort for different types of stellar objects. Nice to see "under the horizon" and learn what's outside of view. Only 5/10 is that application seems to not remember the calibration.
