Bring space down to earth, with the latest in Augmented Reality features.

Look! What's that in the sky? Is it a bird? A plane? Venus? Swamp gas? A weather balloon?

Quickly identify objects in the sky, with this try-before-you-buy version of the award-winning Pocket Universe astronomy application.

Pocket Universe Express displays thousands of stars, constellations, and solar system objects on a real-time rendered view of the sky.

The view will move automatically as you move left, right up and down - the app acts as a window onto the night sky.

When you are ready for something a little more, upgrade with a single in-app purchase to the full version of Pocket Universe, and get instant access to dozens of new features: track the International Space Station, play quizzes, virtually walk on Mars, see 80,000 stars and lots more!

Many features - including the night sky view! - are available for free, but one in-app purchase unlocks many exciting new features, and keeps an independent developer encouraged enough to keep working on updates.. :-)

Where's the Apple Watch support? It's in a separate app called "What's Up".

What’s New

Version 6.7

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

This is a big update, with many issues resolved and some cool new features!

Some of the highlights include:

* New AR features - enjoy a model Solar System on your desk!
* Search for the brightest satellites, by name or from a a list (it used to include Humanity Star, but that one just burned up. awww...)

Many other bugs have been fixed. Enjoy!

Great Aid For Beginner

This tool makes finding objects easy and Sky defines the constellations clearly. I would recommend this application be used indoors to become familiar with everything it offers. Herbert

I love this app. It makes it easier to see where everything is and explains about each and every star or planet.

Outstanding app.

This is one of my favorite apps. You can easily pick and choose what objects in the sky you want to display. The information listed in this app is fantastic. You can have the app geo locate your position on earth so that with the iPad or iPhone gyroscope enabled, wherever you point your device is accurately depicted. Five out of five.
