SkyORB Lite
SkyORB Lite

SkyORB Lite

Realtech VR

For those who want an augmented reality app for learning astronomy.

SkyORB is a decent stargazing application that utilizes a really good digital compass and a 3D interface. It lets you search and find stars, deep sky objects, current satellites and shuttle missions, and enables you to see the sky from any point on earth. The trial version is of course free but is stripped down in features, unless you pay for the premium version for a few bucks right inside of the app. This app seems to be riddled with bugs, and there is also no red night vision toggle, which renders it almost useless. SkyORB is a free download from the App store.
