Stellarium is an application for Android that provides you with the ability to find information about objects that you can see in the sky.
The app gives you the opportunity to point your mobile phone in the sky in order to identify almost any object there. It is possible to get data about stars, planets, satellites, constellations, comets, and so on.
You have to provide the application with access to the location of your smartphone. Once it is done, Stellarium automatically generates a map of the night sky. There you can find a lot of various objects and tap on them in order to get detailed information. It is also possible to check out how people from other corners of the world see stars in their regions.
The basic functions of the applications are free to use. There is the ability to purchase an upgraded version in order to get access to additional content. Premium users have the opportunity to browse a lot of materials about astronomy as well as use new tools.
In some way, this utility reminds of various navigation apps such as Wikiloc, for example. However, there is information only about the sky.
