The app informs you about the exact timings of the eclipse based on your individual GPS or network position. It will show you a map with the entire eclipse path, giving you details on times and local circumstances. Even before the eclipse you will see an animation of the event as it will be seen from your location. When the eclipse is in progress, it will show a realtime animation of the celestial event. You will hear acoustic announcements of important stages of the eclipse and see a countdown on your display. Search your favorite location from a huge database or from the map or simply use your actual device position.
For each selected location you will see an animation how the eclipse will look like. With this animation, you can compare the aspect of the eclipse from your location to any other location or important places like the point of maximum eclipse.
To select your best viewing spot the app provides an augmented reality view. The progress of the eclipse is projected onto a life camera picture of your device. So you can avoid blocked of your view by trees or buildings and select the best place to enjoy the entire eclipse.
To be reminded of the eclipse you can add the calculated timings to your personal android calendar.
Engaged amateur astronomers will find a screen with detailed information and the local circumstances of the eclipse.

The calculations are of a high enough accuracy for almost all amateur astronomy applications.
Due to the fact that astronomy is often best when far from civilization where mobile signal may not always be reliable. Therefore, this app is (almost) completely self-contained and does not require any internet connection for most of the information available. The only exceptions to this are the SOHO solar images and NGC/IC, Messier, Caldwell and Binary star images and weather forecast which are loaded dynamically, as well as the refreshing of satellite, comet and near-earth asteroid data.
Night mode turns the display red for night observations without having to ruin your night vision.
The Sky Map makes use of the direction sensors of the device to show the sky above (or below you). Most of the features can be toggled in the settings. The Sky Map also allows you to turn on the device's camera to see the view behind the device with the sky map superimposed over it.
The direction sensors of the device may need to be calibrated if the map appears to be pointing in the wrong direction. To calibrate the device's sensors wave the device in a figure-8 pattern. If the direction is still off, then the direction calibration can be adjusted manually by changing the setting in the Settings screen.
The observation log, allows you to save observations in the applications, as well as manage a list of astronomical equipment and observing locations. This equipment is also available for use in the Telescope Calculator.
Most of the data screens have an option to share the data via email, or other similar apps able to accept HTML content.
The Astronomical Time is also available as a Home screen widget. To use the widget, the app needs to be installed onto the internal storage instead of the SD card, otherwise it will not be available.
The Russian translation of the application is courtesy of Lirvux.
Some permissions are required for correct functioning of the app:

Camera/Microphone - used to allow camera background in skymap. The microphone is never used but this permission is bundled with camera.
Photos/Media/Files - used to allow proper functioning of the full screen images and caching of images
Network access - used to do online searches, and downloading comet, asteroid and satellite data, object images and geocoding.
The app is jam-packed with features:
- Observe the sky with the skymap, planisphere, aurora forecast, polar finder, weather forecast, daylight map, SOHO images, Jupiter and Saturn's moons, Moon and Sun calendars and what's up.
- Detailed object information on the planets, constellations, comets, exoplanets, meteor showers, near-earth asteroids, satellites, as well as the full NGCIC, Caldwell, Messier, 6th catalog of Visual Binary Stars by the USNO and General Catalog of Variable Stars catalogs, as well as a SIMBAD search.
- Calculate angular separation, atmospheric refraction, magnitude, coordinate conversions, visual limiting magnitude, precession, redshift, and telescope airy disc, f-ratio and magnification
- Astronomical references, glossary, HR diagram and stellar classification.
- Astrophotography tools for exposure time, CCD resolution, Untracked exposure time and optimal f-ratio.
- Emphemerides for eclipses, equinoxes, conjunctions and oppositions, the sun, moon and planets
- Observation log
- Astronomical time
After installing the application, open it and select the "Tip of the day" check box to enable the notifications. You can also configure the exact time you want to have the tip popup. When a notification is triggered, tap on it to see the full text of the guideline. Swipe left and right to navigate between the guidelines.

This eclipse will teach you how to use Eclipse in your day-2-day life while developing any software project using Eclipse IDE. We will give special emphasis on Java project.
This app helps you to organize your total solar eclipse viewing. From First Contact on the Oregon Coast, through the maximum duration of totality, to Last Contact on the shores of South Carolina, you'll find it all here. There are viewing tips, destinations to consider, maps, and more.
Start planning now using the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse USA app. Use the built-in countdown timer to track the actual event day. As the date draws near, the app will be updated with more specific tips including unique photo opportunity locations, and much more.
See why those of us who have witnessed a Total Solar Eclipse are looking forward to the 2017 event so eagerly. If you are one of the relatively few who have seen Totality, you know that no other natural phenomenon comes close to the experiences. These events have captivated mankind for millennia. This is natural science, astronomy and psychology wrapped up in one spectacular package.
- Did you know that it is still a mystery how long a day on Saturn is?
- Did you know that Saturn has 60 moons?
Enjoy the beauty of one of the best known and most beautiful planet in the Solar System. Saturn is mostly known for its rings and numerous moons. The easy navigation through the app makes the experience of surfing the Space really breathtaking and unforgettable.
IMPORTANT: This free demo shows the Saturnian system of moons and rings. Full access to all solar system objects is available through In-App purchase.
Remember building a solar system in high school? Cups and papier-mache balls are in the past, because Solar Walk is an interactive orrery that shows all planets and satellites of the solar system in their correct positions in real time.
This 3D solar system model lets you navigate between planets, see their positions on a specific date, explore how they move and why. You will see the entire Milky Way galaxy from a far and zoom in to study all the planets and satellites in close-up, learn their trajectories, inner structures, history of their exploration, and geography.
Every planet has extensive information: size, mass, orbital velocity, exploratory missions, thickness of structural layers, and composition of atmosphere.
“Can’t-miss app.” - Mashable
“Solar Walk serves up a visually impressive 3D model of our solar system. Set against a haunting, atmospheric soundscape, the app shows planets and satellites in their correct positions, and offers mini movies, facts and other related tidbits.” - TNW
“This jaw-dropping app provides a wholly interactive 3D model of our solar system, one that’s had me hooked for days. It’s the kind of thing you can imagine a science teacher using in the classroom of the future — except that we don’t have to wait.” - CNet
“Zoom from Mercury to Pluto (which makes the cut in this app), passing each planet’s moons along the way. Because Solar Walk knows what time it is, the planets are in proper orientation to the Sun: Earth is dark where it is currently night and gradually lightens to daytime on the other side.” - The New York Times

Duran Duran's keyboard Nick Rhodes mentions Star Walk as his favorite app:
"With the Star Walk app, if you hold your device up towards the sky, you can see all the stars and constellations. It even tells you the names of all the planets. Then, if you point it towards the ground, it shows you what all the stars are in the other hemisphere. It’s brilliant, and if you’re ever somewhere with a clear sky and no light pollution, it’s a revelation. It’s beautifully designed and makes clever use of the available technology. I’m fascinated by astronomy, but even if you’re not, give this a go."
- The Star Spotter feature won't work for the devices that are not equipped with the gyroscope and compass.
- For Android 4.4 KitKat users: the application doesn't support ART, please switch to Dalvik.
