Pocket Universe

Have you ever looked up at the night sky, and wondered what exactly you were looking at? Pocket Universe is an easy-to-use app that will help you learn the names of constellations, bright stars, planets and more. You can literally hold up your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch in front of you, and the app will use the built-in compass to display the same view of the sky you see - but one that's complete with names and information.

Then explore the Solar System, and take virtual walks on the surface of the Moon and Mars, before playing a game to help you learn more about astronomy that you thought possible.

Every night there is something to see: Pocket Universe will provide you a list of suggestions, as well as give you regularly updated news and observation tips - which you can even share with your friends.

You don’t need to be an expert to use Pocket Universe, and everything you see has a useful pop-up information window and links to Wikipedia for the latest information.

With over 80,000 stars, beautiful textures, built-in quiz games, updated news, lunar phases, information on the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, an Orrery view, and more, there’s so much to explore.

Key Features

Pocket Universe was the first iPhone astronomy app to support the built-in compass, and it was also the first to add a true augmented reality view using the iPhone's built-in camera! Use the camera view in the evening or morning sky to overlay the labelled view over the real sky.

Simply hold up your iPhone in front of you, and the view will be exactly what you see - but with names and information at your fingertips. Move the iPhone around to see the view change in real-time.

Versión 6.14.2

This version fixes the fix that the previous fix didn't fix for everyone. But it should be fixed now!
If Motion Tracking isn't working for you, please go to the app's own Settings and change the "Alternative Motion" setting right at the bottom of the list. Thanks!
Happy Holidays!

Excellent and worth the money: easy to use and comes with a reasonable amount of information about the different objects plus a link to Wikipedia if you want to know more. Point it towards the sky and you will be able to name the objects you can see. The user interface is good. The Tonights Sky section is very good. I use it with an iPod 3G.

Fantástica app

Hace 8-9 años que tengo esta app. Es sencilla, funciona bien y tiene mucha información. Echando la vista atrás y viendo como ha evolucionado la AppStore, esta es una de las mejores aplicaciones que he comprado sin duda. Es barata para que lo ofrece y el desarrollador jamás la ha dejado abandonada ni ha pedido un solo céntimo más por cada actualización después de tanto tiempo. Otros desarrolladores con más renombre deberían aprender y cuidar más sus productos, bien sea por abandonar sus apps o por estar sacando cada 2x3 una actualización de pago. Frente a esto solo puedo dar gracias al desarrollador, pues hoy, con iOS 12 esta app vuelve a actualizarse y la sigo disfrutando tantos años después. El único reproche que puedo ponerle es que este traducida a varios idiomas y no al Español. Aunque supongo que algún día llegará ....
