“SkyORB is fantastic for anyone interested in the night skies, but it’s not just a star-gazer’s handbook.“
We love SkyORB because it not only offers 3D images of the planets and the stars in the sky, along with comets and asteroids, but it also comes a 'point to sky' feature that allows you to aim your handset towards a star or planet and it'll identify it for you.
