Description

* AN UPDATE 1.6.5 HAS BEEN SUBMITTED ADDRESSING THE CRASH WHEN THE APP IS LAUNCHED. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE *


SkyORB is more than a simple star map, it's a collection of 7 tools including a 3D star map, 3D planetarium, ephemeris, search engine, sun clock, point to sky, weather, and more. Click More to learn why you should download this App today!

SkyORB is fantastic for anyone interested in the night skies, but its not just a star-gazers handbook.
- iPad.net


We love SkyORB because it not only offers 3D images of the planets and the stars in the sky, along with comets and asteroids, but it also comes a 'point to sky' feature that allows you to aim your handset towards a star or planet and it'll identify it for you.

Customer Reviews

Can't get it to do anything (1 star)
That says it.

Like (4 stars)
I like SkyORB and all it's features. The only problem I have with the app is that the little icon that usually indicates an upgrade is inoperable. The icon won't upgrade the app, nor will it go away.
