More Details

The app features are simple and elegant with precise controls that free up the screen by using touch gestures rather than an on screen display. This lack of on screen controls means you get a better view of the night sky as it is displayed on your device.

The sound track included with this app was designed by Mat Jarvis who is the well-known composer of the award-winning soundtrack for the game Osmos. Each star has been given its own sounds based on its temperature and size providing you with a nice gentle ambience.

Sky Guide was last updated to Version 1.0.1 on May 15, 2013 and included some polishing and bug fixes. There have been 234 reviews of this app with an average score of five out of five stars.

This app has completely blown me away with now beautiful and precise it is. I especially enjoy the music tracks that have been included.

For: iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, iPad (3rd generation), iPad Wi-Fi + 4G, iPad (4th generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (4th generation), iPad mini and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular with iOS 5.1 or later. Star Guide is optimized for iPhone 5.
