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.

Smooth and Precise. Awesome App. SkEye is a celestial body locator with a very smooth and precise interface. My only complaint would be the fact that the free version has a somewhat restricted star database (but, hey, it's the *free* version, and it's even ad free!) I'm considering purchasing the Pro version for the more complete star database and satellite data. One feature I miss is the ability to set a "magnitude filter" for those moments when visibility is not that great.

Awsome app. If you ever looked into the night sky and wondered where the planets are or what you're looking at, you want this app! Great for beginners and experienced star gazers alike

Good apps Being able to track stars real time is awesome. The precision is not always good though, I often have to fine tune the GPS location a bit...
