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.
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.
Night mode turns the display red for night observations without having to ruin your night vision.
Most of the data screens have an option to share the data via email, or other similar apps able to accept HTML content.
When using Android 4.0+, the Upcoming Events is able to add events to the device's calendar by using a long click.
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.
Android 2.2+ is now supported, but Android 4.0+ to get the full user experience.
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 list of tools in the app are as follows:
- Upcoming astronomical events

Ever try to find a file but can't remember where you put it? ASTRO has the most robust technology to search phones or search for files in the mobile world, giving you the ability to do anything from broad searches across all locations mentioned above for types of content (pics, music, videos, etc.) to very specific file searches based on file name, size, location, etc. And, with ASTRO's unique "CLOUD HOPPING (TM)", you can move files from one cloud to another in a single copy or move/paste - without having to download them first before sending to your destination cloud!
ASTRO now has support for Leef Bridge, a powerful, yet simple, innovative USB flash drive that allows users to easily transfer files to other devices (Android phones, tablets, Macs and PCs). Visit www.2leef.com/bridge for more information and a list of compatible devices.
What are some of the benefits to ASTRO’s new file Indexing functionality:
- After your first search, results are almost instantaneous across all indexed locations (mobile device, clouds, networked locations)
- If you are offline, you can still search for files that have been indexed.
- Eliminates redundant network calls in ASTRO, making some file search operations faster.
- Better file search, file browsing experience in areas with spotty or slow network coverage.
How does ASTRO’s new Indexing functionality work?
- As you browse through directories on your device, clouds or networked locations, ASTRO begins indexing your files in the background in order to speed up future searches you perform.
- It will also build your index whenever you do a search. It will build the index for your internal and external sd cards very quickly (typically under 15-20 seconds). Clouds or networked locations will take longer and also depends on the number of files in those locations.
- You can also choose to proactively index any of your other locations like clouds (Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive) and networked locations by doing a search on those locations or by going to Settings, Search index and click Rebuild index. Keep in mind if you choose to index a 500GB server you have at home, it may take a while. :)
- You can go to Settings, Set Default Search Locations to set your default locations.
- You can go to Settings, Search index and clear your index at any time as well.
- SWIPE SCREEN RIGHT to get to Clouds, Network Locations or Saved Searches fast
- SWIPE SCREEN LEFT to get to Tools (App Backup, Task Killer, SD Card Usage), Settings and Help

Want to know how light pollution will affect deep sky objects in your area?
It's very useful if you plan on buying a telescope and you want to know how deep sky objects will look through it from your area.
What you can do with this app:
Choose from over 100 of the brightest clusters, nebulae and galaxies and compare their angular size with the full moon
for a precise estimate of how large that object will appear in your telescope!
For an accurate calculation of how bright a particular galaxy, nebula or cluster will be in your eyepiece, first
enter the aperture of your telescope, turn 'Light Pollution' on, and choose which of the 5 light pollution levels best describes where you live.
All statistics and numbers have been fine tuned to give an accurate measurement of how the object will look through
All deep sky objects have been resized to precisely the size they would appear if next to the full moon.
You don't even need a telescope to make good use of this app as over 30 of these deep sky objects can be seen with
the naked eye(Including 5 galaxies!)
Extremely useful for astrophotogrophers, amateur astronomers and star gazers alike!
Know of a bright deep sky object that isn't in this app? Let me know and it may be included in the next update.
Dark interface for night use
-All 110 Messier objects
-The brightest NGC objects
-Simplistic user interface
-Accurate light pollution predictions
-'Show Moon' button that places the moon beside each object for angular size comparison
Tip: To get the most out of the light pollution aspect of this app, use in a dark place where your eyes can adjust to see the faint objects on the screen!
keywords: Aperture, focal, astro, astrophotography, space, sky, stars, globular, meade, celestron, horsehead, astronomer, sky map, chart, magnitude, messier, ngc, ic, planets, saturn, jupiter, venus, mars, telescope, simulator
Many of which can be seen with the naked eye!
Browse through a list of hundreds of galaxies, nebulae and globular star clusters all currently in your sky!
If you are heading out star gazing on the weekend, simply enter the date and time to pre plan your night of observing or imaging.
First time use:
Open the app and you will be prompted to enter the latitude and longitude for your current location find these out by typing in any search engine: "[MY CITY] longitude and latitude".
When entering coordinates, be sure to use negative for south and east, eg. 37 south & 144 east is -37 and -144.
