This app is really cool! I used it to identify two very bright, twinkling objects in the sky which I thought were planets, but actually they were the stars, Sirius and Canis Minor. This app works using your gps, accelerometers/gyroscope and mangnetometer to tell you the names of all the cool stuff up there :)
