Star Chart is a great and highly-educative application for Android devices that is trusted by over 10 mln users who use it to be able to easily contemplate the stars. The program uses your location and g meter to display a star chart with detailed information on every star and constellation in the skies where you are located.
This software was released by Escapist Games Limited and became a trend of its own kind. It has a simple interface, automatically detects your positions, and shows where the stars and other space objects are located very accurately.
Interface and capabilitiesUpon launching the program you will either need to specify you location coordinates manually or choose automation GPS detection (the former is obviously a safer and more accurate option). After that just move your device around and you will see the night sky map with all stars, galaxies, constellations, and other space objects are located. That may come in really handy when you want to show some constellation to a friend or your date, but forgot where exactly it is or how it’s called.
