Ever used Google's Sky Map to identify a star, but wanted to know more than just the star's name? Star Odyssey fills that gap.

It includes:
* Over 70 of the brightest stars in the night sky
* Pronunciation guides (it's not obvious how to pronounce many star names)
* Origin of the name (the meaning of a star's name is often insightful)
* Brightness and distance from Earth
* Interesting astronomical facts
* Includes all stars displayed in Google Sky Map
* Integration with the SkEye planetarium app for locating stars (Unfortunately Google Sky Map does not support this feature)
* Algol Eclipse schedule (find out when to watch the Demon Star fade and re-brighten)

Keywords
* astronomy, star chart, star map, sky map, star guide, algol minima calculator

    I use my Galaxy Note 10.1 when observing the night sky. The app doesnt use GPS or alows you to enter location manually so a few features are unuseable on a Wifi tablet. The worst problem is the poor font it uses - it is really bad and almost unreadable.

    Says it cannot find my location but gives me no way to input data! Tells me my wi-fi and locator must be on (which they are)! Unistalled...
