The Night Sky - Simply Magical
The Night Sky is a magical new app that enables you to identify the stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and even satellites you can see above. Just stand anywhere and hold your Android Phone or Tablet up to the sky and The Night Sky will display the names of the stars, planets and other objects you are able to see, just like magic!
Even if your view is obscured by clouds or daylight, The Night Sky app will know which stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and satellites are hiding from your view! You have to use this app to realize just how amazing it is!
The Night Sky does this by using your location data provided by the GPS and compass built in to your device. It then cross references your location data with its inbuilt map of the sky and overlays the stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and satellites names on your screen. It really is magical and will amaze you, and anyone you show it to!
So next time you're gazing up in to The Night Sky and wonder the name of a star, planet, galaxy, constellation or even a satellite, just get out your Android Phone or Tablet and let The Night Sky app amaze your gaze!
The Night Sky is a #1 selling app because it really is simply magical!

Comet Monitor comes with two databases. "Selected JPL" is a selection of popular imaged comets using elements from JPL, while "Observable MPC" is the elements database of observable comets by the Minor Planet Center (MPC) without image icons. If you wish to have an imaged comet transferred to the "Selected JPL" database, please send the author an email with your comet icon (128 x 128) photo.
The development of this software has been inspired by the approach of comet C/2012 (ISON) which is expected to become a celestial spectacle as bright as the full moon. With Comet Monitor you can follow the development of this event and locate the comet on a star chart.
The orbital elements will be updated on regular basis and can be downloaded at any time. An update notification is not planned for privacy reasons, since this application does not send any data out of your device, but this would be necessary for checking your current database version. Internet Permission is required for database updates and download of Sky View images. Once downloaded images are saved and available offline and can be updated online any time.
GPS Permission is for those who prefer to set local coordinates via GPS. Coordinates can also be input manually without GPS.
The decimal accuracy of comet ephemerides is exaggerated in order to demonstrate how fast or slow things are changing. The computed data is in good agreement with NASA's Horizons data, however, not recommended for high precision astrometry.
The use of this software, designed for amateur astronomers, requires familiarity with astronomy and the use of your device. A Help page is bundled and accessible from the main menu.
This application operates in landscape mode only and requires presence of an external storage card. Of course best viewed with tablets.
Galaxy Precident SCH-M828C and similarly small phones not supported.
If in doubt, please contact the developer by email for pre-sales questions.

Voor vrijwel elke dag van het jaar worden bijzondere hemelverschijnselen beschreven, vaak met een handig sterrenkaartje erbij. De app geeft ook informatie over opkomst en ondergang van zon en maan, en over de zichtbaarheid van de planeten.
Push-notificaties houden je desgewenst op de hoogte van wat er op stapel staat, en voor de liefhebber biedt de app ook links naar actuele sterrenkundenieuwtjes.
See "Developer's website" (linked from this page) for more information, including the full changelog. If you find bugs or have questions, please report by email, as there is no mechanism for us to respond to comments left as reviews. Thanks!
The size of images downloaded with Sky Lounge is as large or as small as the device screen in pixels. In order to minimize server load, the selectable field of view is limited to 7 degrees, which well embraces NGC 7000 (the North America Nebula in Cygnus).
Downloaded images are saved to the memory card in a folder named "skylounge". If an image with given parameters already exists locally, it will be loaded from memory, rather than being downloaded.
Sky Lounge is designed for tablets in landscape mode (normal and reverse) running Android 3/4. It will run on phones, however, the screen would look rather crowded and ugly.

3. Please contact the author, if you have any pre-sales questions.
The sky view is updated every 4 minutes which is roughly equivalent to a sky motion of 1 degree.
This application will fade out shortly, i.e. no new functions will be added, but bug fixes will be made.
All functions of Planisphere are now included in "Solunar".
If you own a tablet, please also consider the applications "Solunaero" or "AsteriaCoeli" or "Sky Atlas for Tablets", all of which include a planisphere.

Satellite Tracking Is Back and Faster!
New Satellite category database soon!
see http://www.n2yo.com/satellites/ for list of the new extra beta category, check back in the next few days fore.
Sky Map turns your Android-powered device into a window on the night sky.
The Plus adds the new ability to track any near earth objects with a NORAD Id in real time. Follow satellites, the international space station, and more!
Sat Locks My take up to 1-2 minutes over cell networks!
You can get predictions for Iridium Flares for the next 7 days. Think shooting star like flares.
Based on code Open sourced and donated by Google.
Tracking data is courtesy of www.n2yo.com

Point your handset at the sky and see which satellites are there.
Droidsat is for advanced users who want to use their own TLEs or work offline.
Novice users may prefer Space junk or Satellite AR which are more user friendly.
Key features of DroidSat:
- after satellite files have been downloaded, no network connection is required.
- ability to load your own satellite TLE files.
- highly configurable display settings can minimize CPU use and save power.
- fast forward and orbital path display to show future satellite positions.
Enable GPS location and your internet connection before starting it for the first time.
menu->choose tles - select the category of satellite to display (stations.txt for ISS, visual.txt for the brightest satellites, tle-new.txt for recent launches)

NASA's Kepler mission is to find terrestrial planets, in particular those in the habitable zone of their stars where water and possibly life might exist. Among thousands candidates, 156 planets, including three orbiting a binary star system, have been confirmed as of October 2013. It is just a question of time until the first Earth-like planet will be found in a habitable zone.
Considering that planets are not confirmed every day, the widget needs to be updated manually in that it won't drain your battery.
After installation, a splash comes up with instructions and an About button. Note that widgets need to be moved to the home screen; your device manual knows how to. Please appreciate that widgets cannot be moved to external memory card.

In this omBook, Dr. Wayne Dyer addresses the topics of money and abundance with the belief that a child's earliest thoughts and perceptions about these subjects are those that will last throughout his or her life. The aim is to help children develop a healthy view of money by using themes and images they can relate to.
Topics include Money does not define who you are, it doesn't matter what others have, and abundance comes in many forms. This is not a how-to manual on spending and saving for kids; but rather a positive, spiritual approach to the meaning of money. After going through this omBook with your child, discuss the 10 follow up questions which re-inforce the message and further develop children's understanding of the subject.
There are three ways to read this omBook™
★ "Read to Me" — listen to the narrated story with words highlighted as they are read
★ "Read it Myself" — read the book in its traditional form
★ "Auto Play" — plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning pages. Great for younger children!
★ Narrated by Dr. Wayne Dyer
★ Background music
