Astronomy applications are quite popular among iPhone fans. There are plenty of powerful astronomy applications in iTunes that let their users explore the stars, learn new things, and even find out what they are looking at nights. That certainly beats reading an astronomy book.
Star rover is a cool star map app for iPhone that calculates sky objects in real time, giving you the chance to explore you virtual sky to your heart’s desire. It covers over 120K stars and 88 constellations. You can interact with your virtual sky and see a whole lot more.
Star Rover has beautiful graphics. It can determine your location and lets you interact with its virtual sky. The eclipse, sunset, and sunrise can be simulated too. Star Rover does support pinch to zoom.
Star Rover may not have the most features among astronomy apps for iPhone. At the same time, it has decent graphics and enough features for those who have not owned an astronomy app in the past. It is fairly affordable for what it does.
