Redshift app

PDB 777

Don’t waste your money. This is an inferior astronomy app.



I've used this app for a few years and it still amazes me. Beautiful, intuitive, and jam packed with amazing capabilities and information, and the ability to fast forward and rewind from just about any perspective in the universe. Land on any planet or moon and watch the evening sky move on Venus or Jupiter. Identify or find anything in our night sky. Use it to find satellites. Watch all the planets as the travel around the sun at any time shifted speed you want. Watch the earth from the perspective of a satellite and see all the other satellites orbiting in real time. Whatever you want to know about the night sky, deep space objects, or our solar system, this app has it. Beautiful graphics throughout and updated Pluto model from New Horizons to boot. Amazing!!!
