Kids, teens, and grown-ups alike always wonder what really do the sparkling diamonds in the sky called Stars signify. Well, if you have been scratching your head and pondering over the same question, then it is time to take out your iOS device and try SkyView Free. This app will give you the power to explore the universe with visually appealing 3D graphics.
Created by Terminal Eleven LLC, this developer has just Skyview Free under its belt, but it seems they want to become the master of the galatic app genre and not spoil it by venturing into other categories.
The most commonly asked questions, as we surely heard before, related to constellations, astronomy, and sun are: Where will the Sun rise and set on a given date? Will there be a Full Moon tonight? Where is the Big Dipper? What is the name of that bright star? What are some fun facts about these objects? SkyView will answer all of them with the help of few great features, as the ability to point the camera to the sky, tap on what you see and discover really slick facts about these sky objects. The app is unique because it blends the camera view with incredible 3D graphics of the sky objects to provide a really neat Augmented Reality view of the sky.
The options housed in SkyView are Sky Paths (gives full info on the path of the moon or sun for a 24-hour period), Change the Date and Time (Travel through time and view the sky on different dates), Visually-Appealing 3D graphics (The various celestial bodies are represented in high quality 3D), Stars and Constellations (Aim and tap on the screen to identify the innumerable number of stars). The coolest feature within the app is definitely the Searc and locate feature, under which users can easily locate an interesting object and see which direction it lies in. Wow, now that is really slick and awesome.
SkyView Free features a hell-lot of features and most of them can only be enjoyed when experienced instead of on paper. This app is highly recommended to all the people heavily interested in the study of stars, simultaneously for all those users who just want to while away time and gather casual know-how.
