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.

Think how wonderful it is.
