SkySafari Pro will completely replace your desktop astronomy software, and forever change the way you view the night sky. With SkySafari Pro, you can now explore the universe - not just from Earth, but from anywhere in the Milky Way galaxy!

As just reviewed in Sky & Telescope, the iOS version of SkySafari is "revolutionary" and a "game-changer". Now here for Android, SkySafari will change the way you do astronomy!

Too bad.. This is good software. However, it is a pity, even a shame, that the software, being quite expensive, has got stuck on this update (Dec 2013), and the product is now developed under a different name in the Play store and sold for the same expensive price. I have corresponded with the developers, who informed me that the product is likely to go through such a major update every 24 months, where customers will be asked to repurchase should they want to benefit from added features. 4 Version is practically identical.
