Star Gazing on the iPhone and iPad

By , on December 13, 2012

Around December, we get many news submissions about Christmas themed apps, or Christmas themed updates to games. Nine times out of ten we ignore these, but every now and then something catches our eye. The funny thing in this case is that what I'm about to show off isn't because of an interesting Christmas update (although its kind of humourous), but the app itself is pretty neat, and something we hadn't heard of before... and that is Star Walk.

This is a handy guide for astronomy fans, and those interested in the stars, as it acts as a real time star map, and shows off the constallations as well. Have a look at a video demo.

The Christmas update mentioned is a Santa tracker by the way.
