How Does Google Sky Map For Android Work?
By lynn : A how to tutorial about google sky map, android app, android app review, Product Reviews with step by step guide from lynn.
Google Sky Map turns your Android-powered mobile phone into a window on the night sky. It will identify objects that appear in the sky and allow users to search for various objects.
The device will work on all Android-powered devices running Android 1.5 or higher. If a device is released that does not have a compass functionality, the app will work only in manual mode.
The app uses Android-powered devices' built-in compass, GPS, and clock to display an annotated Sky Map of the area it is facing. The map will adjust as the user moves the device. If a device is released that does not have a compass functionality, the app will work only in manual mode.
Sky Map enables users to identify stars and planets by pointing their devices towards these objects in the sky. Sky Map automatically adjusts to identify on the device's screen the objects it is facing. Users can zoom in and out, and switch various layers such as constellations, planets, grids, and deep sky objects, on and off, choosing to make these elements visible or not.
Users can also determine the locations of planets and stars relative to their own current locations with the search function. Inputting the name of a planet or star will direct users towards this object. A user may also explore the cosmos manually and move through the sky by touching the screen instead of having it adjust automatically.
