Plenty of updates in this version!
* New-look dashboard display, with a mini-What's Up view (tap it for the full-sized one)
* First version of a "Night sky tour" feature, to point out interesting things to look for. Let me know if you like it!
* Many, many bugs sent to the big bug farm.
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.. :-)
