Sky Map is an Android application for observing and studying the stars. Thanks to the utility, you will know better the position and name of the constellations.
You have the opportunity to explore the sky, discover the alignment of stars, planets and nebulae in real time. The app shows the area of the starry sky that is above you. It is worth noting that for a more accurate map display you should enable GPS.
Users can learn about the position of the celestial bodies that interest them. For this you write the name of the object, for example, planet Mars. An arrow appears on the screen indicating where the device should be directed to see the heavenly body. So you easily find any space object. Star Walk 2 has similar features and a beautifully implemented augmented reality option.
There is a function of time travel. It shows how the position of stars and planets changes at a given moment. For example, you may find out what the sky was like when you were born. Besides, there is a chance to look into the future and see a parade of planets in 20 years or more.
Sky Map supports multitouch and automatic screen orientation change. Intuitive finger movements will zoom in and out of objects. Please note that for proper functioning, all parameters must be adjusted correctly. The Settings and Help sections have all the necessary information.
