Star Rover determines your location automatically. You'll see the stars, moon, planets, constellations in their proper place from your current location. As you move your iPhone, the star map updates in real time.

Best star map
This is the most beautiful app I've come across. It finds my location and orients me to the stars in my sky. It tells me about each object with links to read more. Tonight with its help, my friends and I saw and identified Venus, Mars and Jupiter, not to mention dozens of other gems of the night sky. Can't recommend it enough!
Enjoy everything about this app, especially the constellation artwork. Now I have plenty of chances to make wishes with the shooting stars. With this app, any city dweller can easily understand what our ancestors saw in the night sky. This is truly a great tool to spark anyone's interest in astronomy.
Not as good as Star Chart...
I wish I found Star Chart before I bought this app. This app is laggy and visually more for constellation finding. Not as accurate as Star Chart and not intuitive, if you zoom in and then back out you have to enable the gyroscope mode again. Save your money get Star Chart!
