Sky and Telescope release Android app – Free!
One of the most popular regular features of Sky and Telescope’s webpage is the “Week at a Glance” section, a detailed summary of the week’s observational highlights. This, and related material, has long been available as an app for your iPhone, for a reasonable fee.
To mark S&T’s 70th anniversary year, the magazine has decided to release an Android version of this app, and make it free to download!
“The S&T SkyWeek Droid app is a follow-up to our S&T SkyWeek app for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches,” says Sky & Telescope editor in chief Robert Naeye. “The app is based on our website’s popular This Week’s Sky at a Glance. But it goes beyond that. It gives the user a day-by-day report on the week’s most exciting sky events, with a link to an interactive sky chart that tells you when and where to look to see the event. You can customize the map for your location.”
To install the app on your android device, just search for “Skyweek” in Android Market.
