App description:

Star Product 2012 Astronomy magazine !!!

STARMAP 2 IS NOW AVAILABLE. This version of Starmap will no more be supported in the future.

A complete planetarium in your hand, Starmap Standard is a high-quality interactive and ergonomic map with 350, 000 stars, and fitted with many deep sky images.

With the iPhone™ compass you can point your device in any direction and Starmap will pinpoint the exact portion of the sky like a virtual telescope.

Starmap is the original planetarium app, and has been designed by a professional of the field of scientific instrumentation. It has been selected in the top 3 at the launch of the AppStore. Starmap has been awarded "Best Product of the Year" by Sky & Telescope - the essential magazine of astronomy. Starmap is a professional astronomy tool that has had more downloads than any other planetarium app. 

Use the touchscreen to zoom in or out, tap stars, planets and other objects in the sky for detailed specifications. This incredible app also lets you build location lists so you can see the night sky from any part of the world using geolocation.

Starmap comes with a host of customizable features to let you personalize how you view the universe, for an enhanced comfort while observing the night sky.

A complete video of Starmap’s features is available on the support website. Do not hesitate to contact the author before purchasing Starmap.
