Sky Map Review
My favorite place to go on school trips when I was a kid was to the local planetarium. I remember looking up at that simulated night sky wishing that I could identify the stars, planets, and constellations as well as the professor putting on the show.
I thought about buying a telescope so that I could stargaze more efficiently, but the equipment is so expensive that I soon gave up the notion of having one of my own.
Now, I have a whole observatory in the palm of my hand - with Sky Map.
Find Planets & Constellations
I knew the basic constellations like Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, and Orions Belt, but I knew there were countless more that I wanted to explore.
All you have to do with the Sky Map application is point your phone anywhere in the sky where you see a constellation or shining star and the app will tell you precisely what you're looking at.
Not only will you be able to see the name of each constellation and star, but the app will even highlight the form of the zodiac so that you can better understand why it earned its name.
Uses Built-In Compass
Many phones now come with a built-in compass and GPS, and this is how Sky Map gives such accurate results. Now, there may be times that the app displays an incorrect portion of the sky when you lift your phone, but this can be fixed by typing in your exact coordinates and a few other handy options.
It can be frustrating to find an app you enjoy, only for it to misbehave when you need it the most. Many people use apps like Sky Map on specific evenings when something miraculous is supposed to be happening in the night sky.
If you should find yourself in a situation where the app is not working as it should, the developers have added an extensive list of quick-fixes in the play store as well as within the app so that you can get your expedition back on track.
Sky Map has changed the way I go stargazing with my father. Instead of wishing that we had an expensive telescope to search the skies, we just pull out our smartphones and point them at the stars to find all of our favorite constellations and planets.
