App Description

Look! What's that in the sky? Is it a bird? A plane? Venus? Swamp gas? A weather balloon?

Quickly identify objects in the sky, with this try-before-you-buy version of the award-winning Pocket Universe astronomy application.

Pocket Universe Express displays thousands of stars, constellations, and solar system objects on a real-time rendered view of the sky.

The view will move automatically as you move left, right up and down - the app acts as a window onto the night sky.

When you are ready for something a little more, upgrade with a single in-app purchase to the full version of Pocket Universe, and get instant access to dozens of new features: track the International Space Station, play quizzes, virtually walk on Mars, see 80,000 stars and lots more!

Many features - including the night sky view! - are available for free, but one in-app purchase unlocks many exciting new features, and keeps an independent developer encouraged enough to keep working on updates.. :-)
