CONSTELLATIONS is an educational app that will help you learn the 88 constellations in the night sky. The app challenges you to identify a constellation by its location in the sky via a quiz game to help make learning fun.
You can play with the constellation art ON or OFF.
You can zoom in on the constellations to get a better look.
There are three constellation sets from which to chose:
- Zodiac, the 12 most famous constellations
- Ptolemy, the 47 classic constellations described in his book Almagest.
- Modern, the 88 official constellations defined by the International Astronomical Union.
Learn more about the constellations by tapping the wikipedia button.
The 12 zodiac constellations are available for free with an in-app purchase unlocking the full set of 88.

Ratings and Reviews
Truth in advertising?
This app really is what it states, a constellations flash cards game, but the free version is only 12 (zodiacal) constellations. You have to pay a buck to get the other 76. There is other advertising at the bottom of the screen; it is neither distracting nor intrusive. I rather liked the app and I really want to learn the constellations, so I bought it.
The dev team heard about the issues and got right to fixing them. Good job!
Useless for learning
There is no feature for panning the sky and getting your bearings, in fact no options at all to make this a learning experience.
