"Not a single glance at the stars without your smartphone"

Reviewed by / May 12, 2011

Google Sky Maps uses the Google Maps technology but applied in reverse.

Instead of streets and squares we will be able to see the constellations and planets from our position. That means that if you are in a unintelligently lit city, an underground bunker or anywhere indoor then you will just know what stars you can't view. But if you are luckily outdoor, in a summer night, happily alone o with someone special at your side...then it’s when you can fully embrace the XXIst century and cry out to heaven how cool it’s having a smartphone.

Let me explain. When you point your phone at the sky, the planets and constellations will be shown. You can just browse the sky or look for a specific celestial object.

We dreamt with stuff like this when we were kids. Don't think how useful this app can be.
Think how wonderful it is.

Google Sky Maps needs no further introduction. It’s a reason by itself to buy an Android smartphone.

    One of my favorite and most used apps. Can now find planets and stars without it. It's amazing.

    I would give it a 5 star, but the gps is not right, plus is to sensitive and it moves all over the place. When you point to the moon or even look for the moon it gives a wrong location. It would say the moon is on the ground... Google needs to make the ap
