SkyWeek is the new, interactive, mobile version of Sky & Telescope magazine’s super-popular “This Week’s Sky at a Glance” web page — a day-by-day calendar of events to observe in the changing night sky. “This Week’s Sky at a Glance” has been Sky & Telescope’s most popular online offering for 21 years. The S&T SkyWeek application gives you access to the content and interactive features described below.
SkyWeek now adds interactive, custom sky maps that are automatically set for your location (not the static version’s compromise for the center of North America). And starting from the sky scene that’s displayed, you can pan all around your heavens, change the scene to other times and dates, and zoom in or out.
• All major sky events: eclipses, conjunctions, good meteor showers — miss nothing!
• Zoomable constellation charts: pan around your whole sky, and change to any time or date!
• Automatically customized to your location worldwide.
• Links to more info.
Whether you’re a newbie skywatcher or an experienced amateur astronomer, SkyWeek will become your handy, everyday guide to what’s up.

Updated to latest, is not updating text for current week. 'Stuck' on week ending Aug 19. App was useless while I was viewing eclipse. There does not seem to be any common UI controls such as 'About'. It shows location as text "current location". So how do I know it is correctly set?
Not bad, but always begging for money.
Just what I always wanted!
I have had my iPod Touch 5 a whopping 3 days and I've been trying out free apps. This is a lovely, interactive sky map! I have always wanted something this easy to use to learn more constellations. I located my old winter sky "friends" and found it is Jupiter I am seeing north of Aldebaran. I look forward to learning more in the future. It is true, it only works in portrait and while it would be nice if it worked in landscape, none of the other apps I have tried for stargazing are quite this nice and easy to use. It will tell you what in interesting for the week and when you can see it best from you exact location. Excellent!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
