    Your favorite Astronomy/Space apps

    I thought this might be a useful thread for the membership to make recommendations.

    I just downloaded the Heavens Above app for my phone (Android based) and its great. I've loved the Heavens Above website for satellite passes and similar events. The app is just as good. It even has a "red / night vision" mode so you don't disturb people at astronomy events.

    I have Skymap Free on my Windows phone, and I like it a lot. And it has the red mode.

    Unfortunately, Heavens-above doesn't appear to be available for iPhone.

    I'm sure you've all heard of it, but Phases of the Moon by Universe Today is really good. It gives you a moon widget so you can check what % the moon is at with a glance. Very cool.

    SkyView is good app to watch space on mobile, it free

    Terminal Eleven's SkyView (Android, iOS App) gives you a good idea of what to expect for good all-in-one stargazing and sky guide apps. SkyView uses your phone's screen and sensors to give you an augmented reality view of what's up in the sky. Users can turn their smartphones and tablets into AR viewfinders for identifying stars, planets and constellations; the app can display an object's track in the sky as well as information on select objects, planets, and satellites.

    SkyView also includes a "time travel" feature that allows you to view the sky as it would have appeared in the past, or will appear in the future, based on what we know of each object's movements.
