Star Chart

Available in :

You can now have a virtual planetarium in your pocket! Look through the eyes of your Android device* to see a virtual window into the whole visible universe.

All you have to do is point your Android device* at the sky and Star Chart will tell you exactly what you are looking at.

Using state of the art GPS technology, an accurate 3D universe, and all of the latest high tech functionality, Star Chart calculates – in real time - the current location of every star and planet visible from Earth and shows you precisely where they are; even in broad daylight!

Want to know what that bright star is called? Point your device at it – you might just find out it’s a planet!

Want to know what the night sky looks like to people on the other side of the earth? Well just point your device down!

Want to know where your star sign is in the sky? Star Chart will tell you all this and more.


Star Charts features include:
- Just point and view. No need to scroll around the screen to find out what you are looking at*.

- Alternatively, look around the sky using finger gestures – perfect for armchair astronomers!

- Supports dynamic device orientation viewing. Allows you to view the night sky whilst holding your Android device at any angle.

- Accurately depicts all the visible stars of the northern and southern hemispheres - a total of over 5000 stars!

- Displays all the planets of the solar system, plus the sun and the moon.

- Displays all 88 constellations, with constellation imagery based on the beautiful artwork by 15th century astronomer Johannes Hevelius.

- Includes entire Messier catalogue of exotic deep sky objects.

- Tap on anything in the sky and get the facts on what you are looking at, including distance and brightness.

- Very powerful zoom function, lets you view the sky in extra detail, using intuitive finger gestures.

- Fully configurable. Star Chart displays only the sky objects that you are interested in.

- Allows you to view the sky underneath the horizon (unlike other more expensive applications). So now you can see where the sun is, even at night!

- Manually set your location to find out what the sky looks like from anywhere in the world.

- Full search feature

- Installable on an SD card

So point your Android device at the sky and see what's out there!

Escapist Games will update Star Chart regularly, so please send us your feedback and features requests to starchart@escapistgames.com … thanks!

*Augmented Reality mode only available if your device supports it, as this feature requires a built-in compass. Manual scrolling is supported on all other devices.

Used to work. Put it back the way it was

by A Google User the 8/27/2013

just perfect !!!! not much to comment all runs smooth on my Samsung G3 ♥♥♥♥♥

by A Google User the 8/27/2013

Doesn't work on my new Nexus 7 The display doesn't follow the motion when I move the tablet around . Its not my device because the crappy free add ridden Droid Sky View works. It works on my GS3 but not the 2013 Nexus.

by A Google User the 8/26/2013

Star chart on HTC Desire C Good graphics. Doesn't show where pointed, loads slowly. Disappointed in performance. Expected better. Originally gave 3 stars because of quality of graphics and star information. Now downgraded to one star as this app now suddenly shuts down. I will be uninstalling and NOT using again.

by A Google User the 8/26/2013

Not even close Ignores compass when looking up. Not a tenth as accurate as google sky map.

by A Google User the 8/25/2013

Better than most I love this app. But the email support feature crashes my phone, which is stupid and cuts me off from support. No support= terrible app.

by A Google User the 8/23/2013

Bloody awful Takes ages to load and lags since recent update, was working fine before, should have stuck with my cracked version. I have actually uninstalled and downloaded a free no frills sky navigator. Thanks Escapist for a complete waste of money.

by A Google User the 8/22/2013

Beautiful Whoever says it's a dud likely has a crap phone. 3d rendering takes some power. Great app if your into star gazing, makes for an accurate compass too

by A Google User the 8/22/2013

Force close. Won't even start on my Transformer Prime. Force closes every time I try to open it.

by A Google User the 8/22/2013

What the description fails to tell you Not a complete app. If you want to look for ALL objects in sky it tells you to purchase an add-on pack. Seriously. I've paid once, it should contain everything. Get google sky map for free, much better and free.
