Extremely easy! Just launch the application to obtain an instant overview of the planets surrounding you. You're in the middle of the screen, on Earth, and the planets are being displayed around you. If a planet is above the Compass Ring and is highlighted, it's visible. If the planet is below the Compass Ring, towards the center of the Earth, it is shadowed and below your horizon. The same applies to all the other celestial types. Activate your starcraft engines and quickly travel around in the universe.

Planet Finder + comes with an advanced Augmented Reality Camera: Just point your phone to the sky and Planet Finder + will instantly switch to Augmented Reality Mode. Spot planets, stars, and constellations through your mobile camera, take a snapshot and share via facebook, email, twitter or MMS!

Interact with the Augmented Reality View by activating its Player. Play, pause, rewind and fast forward the Solar System. This will render the trajectories of the planets and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

You can also track planets, stars, constellations, and galaxies. Just follow the direction of the arrows and you'll spot your object in seconds!

Switch back to 2D Compass or Text View by lowering your mobile phone. Get more detailed information by touching a celestial item in the text list.

Hit the 3D Planet icon for a detailed 3D view of planet/moon texture and check out the real-time positions of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.
