User reviews of SkEye | Astronomy
it is the only android astronomy app with promise based on authors stated future plans. This looks like this will be the first astro app with more deepsky objects then then the messier (use SAC database not NGC). Hope this will evolve to what android astroware should be and is very capable of having.

Great It just does what it promises. Good on resources, snappy and works offline. You can even align it with your observation equipment. Way better and easier than Google sky map. Good job.
