App Description

Star Discovery is a magical new app for sky lovers. It enables you to identify the stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and even satellites you can see above.

Just stand anywhere and hold your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad up to the sky and Star Discovery will display the names of the stars, planets and other objects you are able to see, just like magic! Even if your view is obscured by clouds or daylight, the Star Discovery app will know which stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and satellites are hiding from your view!

You have to use this app to realize just how amazing it is! 


Star Discovery does this by using your location data provided by the GPS and compass built in to your device. It then cross references your location data with its inbuilt map of the sky and overlays the stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and satellites names on your screen.

It really is magical and will amaze you, and anyone you show it to! So next time you're gazing up in to Star Discovery and wonder the name of a star, planet, galaxy, constellation or even a satellite, just get out your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad and let Star Discovery app amaze your gaze!

Star Discovery really is simply magical!
