RedShift - Astronomy

Age Level: Ages: 12 +
By Developer: USM

The leading astronomy app - featured in Apples Rewind!!

This app is extremely cool and will have you hooked and looking at the sky and the heavens in a completely new light. Redshift brings all aspects of the night sky to your mobile device, including planets, stars, constellations and many other celestial objects.

You can zoom in on specific objects, planets, stars, and such, or can pinpoint them in the sky using your exact GPS location on Earth. There is a sky follow option which is super addictive. I spent about 15 minutes outside in the freezing cold while I was testing it out, absolutely riveted. You simply point the device and camera to an object in the sky and it tells you the name, position and constellation it's a part of. It even shows you the lines of the constellation so you can see it for yourself then and there.

The app presents about 500 galaxies, nebulae, star clusters and other such objects on your screen. Every calculation regarding the position, distance, etc. is calculated in real-time and shows an amazing view of the interrelationship of earth, as well as other planets, etc, in relation to each other. It's absolutely fascinating to watch.

Any space object can be tapped on and looked up instantly on Wikipedia. There is no better app for satisfying the curiosity of the night sky than this app. It's a blast to play with and is a must have for every iPhone user.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
