QuickSky is a great app for aiding planetary observations and for use in planning future observations. It includes a number of features that can quickly help you tell which planets are visible from anywhere on earth at any given point in time. The interactive displays are carefully thought-out and are not only fun to experiment with but provide a lot of data in an easy to understand format. Specifically there are three main interactive graphics: (1) a nighttime summary of planets above the horizon, (2) the positions of the four largest moons of Jupiter, and (3) the positions of five of the larger moons and ring orientation of Saturn. There is also a table with the complete list of rise, transit (highest point in the sky), and set times for the planets, Pluto, the Moon, and the Sun, along with specialized Sun timings for astronomical, nautical, and civil purposes. Finally there is an easy to use interface to set your current location (or any position on Earth you are interested in), which can also make use of the GPS or other location services on your device. QuickSky has an overall dark interface theme to make it easier on the eyes when used at night.

Summary of features:
- Interactive nightly planet rise set summary graph with compass directions
- Interactive graphic showing the positions of Jupiter's Galilean moons and their shadows on the planet
- Interactive graphic showing the positions of 5 of Saturn's largest moons and ring orientation
- Consistent easy-to-use interaction controls: drag fingers left and right to animate time, double tap to animate to the current time
- Complete daily planet/Pluto/Sun/Moon set, transit, and rise table
- Ability to easily set/change location with or without a GPS enabled device
- Dark interface theme for easier use at night

Note: formally known as iObserve

What's New in Version 1.2

Changed the name of the app to help out a fellow indie developer who already had a application called iObserve for the mac and is looking to create a version for the iPad.
