Sky Live takes advantage of the newest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ and works perfectly on iOS8:
- Optimized for 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays.
- Utilized new advanced Retina HD display technologies including higher contrast for deeper blacks, which will account for even more beautiful image of the night sky.
- Uses the new M8 motion coprocessor that gathers motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and the new barometer, which senses air pressure to provide relative elevation to detect even the slightest changes in the position of your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+.
- All new Sky Live Widget in Today view of the Notification Center, providing quick updates on time of sunset and current moon phase.
***From the developers of the world famous Star Walk stargazing guide, Apple Design Award winner***
"For stargazers, Sky Live is exactly the app we've always needed to find out just how much of the stars we can see at night and when we'll be able to see our favourite constellations and planets." by Nathan Snelgrove, AppStorm.net.
Stunning space photos combined with everything you need to know about stargazing conditions for your location tonight. Stargazer or not - this app will spark your curiosity.
The most accurate hourly conditions for stargazing are estimated on seven criteria and summarized in one Stargazing Index that will give you all the information you need to make your plans. The formula was developed by a mathematician on the Star Walk team and takes into account:
- Is there anything interesting in the sky tonight?
- Can I see Saturn?
- Is it going to be cloudy?
- Is it going to rain?
- Too much light?
- Is the Moon too bright for stargazing?
You will also get detailed reports on position and trajectory of the International Space Station, the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter and other planets. The forecast is available for seven days ahead.
