I have finally started uploading apps to the Android app store. The three apps I previously wrote about (Scientific Name Search, Plasmatic and Dutch Public Holidays) are uploaded to the app store, as well as a few apps I created based on a version of my astronomical library ported to Java.

The crowning glory of these astronomical apps I have uploaded to the app store is Night Sky Tools (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.smeunier.nightskytools).

The features included in the app are:

  • Angular separation
  • Astronomical Time
  • Atmospheric refraction
  • Coordinate convertor
  • Eclipses
  • Magnitude
  • Precession
  • Conjunctions and Oppositions
  • Ephemerides of the planets, sun and moon
  • Equinoxes
  • Positions of Jupiter’s moons
  • Planetary orbits
  • Constellations
  • Stellar Classification
  • Telescope Airy Disc
  • Telescope F-Ratio
  • Telescope Magnification

Go ahead and check out the app.
