Sky Map description:

Sky Map is a hand-held planetarium for your Android device. Use it to identify stars, planets, nebulae and more.

Originally developed as Google Sky Map, it has now been donated and open sourced.

Troubleshooting/FAQ
The Map doesn't move/points in the wrong place
Make sure you haven't switched into manual mode. Does your phone have a compass? If not, Sky Map cannot tell your orientation. Look it up here: http://www.gsmarena.com/

Try calibrating your compass by moving it in a figure of 8 motion or as described here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1EPbAapaeI.
Are there any magnets or metal nearby that might interfere with the compass? Try switching off "magnetic correction" (in settings) and see if that is more accurate.

Why is autolocation not supported for my phone?
In Android 6 the way permissions work has changed. You need to enable the location permission setting for Sky Map as described here:
https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/6270602?p=app_permissons_m

The Map is jittery
Try adjusting the sensor speed and damping (in settings). We have a better solution coming soon!

Do I need an internet connection?
No, but some functions (like entering your location manually) won't work without one. You'll have to use the GPS or enter a latitude and longitude instead.

Can I help test the latest features?
Sure! Join our beta testing program and get the latest version.

Great app On my Nexus 5X it has been very unreliable, but I think that's the fault of the phone's compass (other compass apps work, but further testing shows that they can lose calibration too so I need to recalibrate almost every time I use them). Otherwise, very impressive.

Gave this another look to see how it has progressed. Significant improvement from older versions. Still a little shaky on tracking, but much more usable now.

Great app but needs improvement Love this app but it could use device specific customizations as it is rarely very accurate on the Galaxy s1/s2/s3/s4/ and now on my s6 I have similar accuracy issues. Calibration helps slightly but without much gain in accuracy. Thanks to the developers for this great app and the responses to concerns and issues. Thanks for your hard work!
