"Note: This is the iPad specific version of Pocket Universe, and the graphics are currently not optimized for the NEW iPad with Retina display. In fact, the universal version will actually look better! I will be releasing a big update to this version in the next few months.
The iPad version of the best-selling iPhone Astronomy App, Winner of Mac World's 2009 App Awards (Education). Pocket Universe for iPad has been rewritten from scratch, but is still the ideal astronomy app for those keen to learn about the night sky.
The unique display is generated dynamically depending on your location and time, and then rendered in 3D for a super fast response - flick the sky and it spins around you. Pocket Universe is a brilliantly simply star map that's always up-to-date and accurate. If you want your kids to learn the constellations, or to impress a date with the names of the stars, this is the only app you need.
Simply hold up your iPad in front of you, and the view will be exactly what you see - but with names and information at your fingertips. Move the iPad around to see the view change in real-time.
• Easy-to-use astronomy application, which focuses on helping you answer the question "What's that in the sky?" • Special "Show Me" mode will guide you to named stars, planets, constellations as well as the brightest galaxies and nebulae. • "Tonight's Sky" and "Objects and Events" will keep you up-to-date, and give you suggestions for what to look for when you head outside. • Constellation Quiz to help you learn your way around the sky. • Links to Wikipedia articles for the latest in-depth information. • 3D Solar System rendering. • Responsive customer support and frequent updates and new features."
