SkyMap, which is an amazing Windows Phone app, helps in tracking the position and movement of the planetary bodies in the sky.
A gem of a Windows Phone app, SkyMap is nothing less than a revelation. In fact, it is a planetarium that brings the starry sky a lot closer to you. You just have to point your phone heavenwards and the app will tell you the exact position of the stars, constellations and other heavenly bodies.
Ever watched a 3D movie? Remember the experience of watching the images on screen more closely. With SkyMap, it will be déjÃÂ vu. Just imagine watching a collection of more than 110,000 stars together. You can use SkyMap for a particular viewpoint and to ascertain time and location on Earth. The app will find out your location in a jiffy with its highly customizable map.
SkyMap can be categorized as an educational software as it offers practical lessons in learning about the mysterious planets in the sky. There are many people, especially in the Orient, who believe that the movement of the Sun, stars and other heavenly bodies has a bearing on the life of we mortals here on Earth. Such votaries of Astrology will be thrilled to bits when such people (if any) will learn about SkyMap, as the app can track the movement of all the planets at any hour of the day.
You can even delve deeper and see the position of the solar system constituents when you fell on days to confirm whether astrologists' mode of prediction is really genuine.
The app is available for US$ 1.49. However, there is a trial version also that is available for free. To try the SkyMap map for free or buy the full version, visit the Windows Phone Marketplace.
