Google Play


The best app for photography PhotoPills is more than 50% off from 14.99 to 6.99 . Google Play Store link HERE .

Arguably the best astronomy app SkySafari 7 Pro is on sale from 65.99 to 22.99 . A bit on the expensive side, but well worth it. Google Play Store link HERE .

PhotoPills is such a versatile app. It is not one app but so many apps in one. If you love photography and haven’t heard about this app, you are missing something. It is not specific to astronomy and is good for any type of photography. If you want to know from your vantage point when will the sun/moon be at the right place compared to a landmark? Or what is the best time to shoot at a particular spot? This app has info along with very useful widgets. It has features like:
– The First 2D Map-Centric Planner: Sun, Moon, Milky Way
– Sun, Moon Alignments Fast Finder
– 3D Augmented Reality: Sun, Moon, Milky Way, Celestial Equator, Polaris, DoF, FoV
– Photo Plans Manager
– Location Scouting Tool
– Key information: Sunrise/set, Twilights, Golden Hour, Blue Hour, Moonrise/set, Supermoon dates, Moon Calendar
– Calculators: Long Exposure, Timelapse, Spot Stars, Star Trails, Hyperfocal Table, DoF, FoV
– Widgets: Sun, Moon, Milky Way
– PhotoPills Awards… and much more!

SkySafari 7 Pro is the latest version from the Simulation Curriculum for stargazing which boasts the largest database of any astronomy app. Its closest competitor is Stellarium Plus . Its 2 new key features include social feature OneSky to view what others are observing near you, and SkyCast to share and guide your friends on what to view and how to view it. The only advantage I see with Stellarium Plus are you will probably get future updates for free and have the laptop version which is open-source and free as well. But SkySafari 7 Pro feels so premium and niche. The SkyTonight feature shows what is best viewable tonight and at what times is something that others are selling as a separate app or as a subscription service.

Clear skies!
