Duran Duran's keyboard Nick Rhodes mentions Star Walk as his favorite app:
"With the Star Walk app, if you hold your iPod 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."

Great app for iPad
This app uses the many abilities of the iPad tablet to greet advantage. Holding the tablet in front of you while looking up at the night sky and seeing a map of exactly the region that you are looking at is magic. And there is so much information about all the named objects (galaxies, stars, planets, satellites etc) right there at your fingertips.
I am fascinated by the solar system and cosmos but unfortunately an amateur. This guided tour with relevant facts and notifications is fabulous.
Fantastic free app
