A planetarium for your phone. Displays the sky with stars, star names, constellations and Messier objects for any time any time anywhere in the world. Star maps are generated locally on the phone so no data access is required.
This app is quite slow on my i776 taking seconds and even minutes to respond to key presses. It should be much snappier on the i856 and i9 which have faster processors.
You have to manually input your latitude and longitude in order to see the correct star map for your location:
Arrows – Move Map
1 – Zoom Out; 3 – Zoom In
* – Decrease Stars; # – Increase Stars
2 – Toggle Constellation Names ; 4 – Toggle Planets
5 – Toggle Constellation Figures; 6 – Toggle Messier Objects
7 – Toggle Info; 8 – Toggle Grid Lines
9 – Switch Language; 0 -Toggle Star Names
