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.

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

I love this app. With android 4 had accelerometer issues (shaking continuously) but after power cycling it started working OK again :)
This app fascinates me no matter how many times I open it. It's very informative and accurate. I would strongly recommend this app to anyone interested in the beautiful constellations around us.
I've had this app for a couple of years, and it used to work great. Then, suddenly, it had everything completely turned around. The map would show the opposite direction of where I was facing. I tried looking for help and fixes, they all told me it must h
