Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are. Wonder no more! Now you can know what that star or planet or galaxy really is! When you hold your iOS device up to the night sky you will see the names of the objects in your view, be they stars, planets, constellations or even satellites. Get to know the night sky like the back of your hand and expain it to your amazed friends and family. Some of the features of this astronomy, reference, iPhone app are as follows:

-Automatic sky tracking comes to the iPod touch 4G! Here you will find automatic compass tracking on a device which does not have a digital compass! Just align the sky to your view, and with some magic, The Night Sky will give you automatic sky tracking just like on the iPhone and iPad!

-Improved red visibility night mode. Now all of the graphics turn red rather than a red layer being overlaid. The screen is also automatically dimmed when night vision is enabled. This mode will enable your vision to adjust to the screen and sky above you very quickly when stargazing.

-Improved graphics for the iPad. iPad users will now benefit from higher resolution graphics.

-Send a magical gift to someone. You can now send The Night Sky as a gift to anyone with an e-mail address. Pass some of the magic on to friends with the inbuilt 'Send as a Gift' feature!

Holding your device up to the sky at night will be a whole, new experience when using Night Sky. This is a terrific and fascinating educational app that will captivate every family member.

COOL CONCLUSION: Night Sky is an app that is well worth the price and easily one of the best ways to learn about and enjoy the natural world.
