Astronomy Guide for iPhone and iPad!
Have you ever dreamt of knowing absolutely everything about the universe in a playful manner? I bet you did if you had astronomy classes at high school. Astronomy can seem a bit boring if you just open a book and start reading and watching pictures. What if you had an app on your favorite device like iPhone or iPad that can make Astronomy interesting and breathtaking. I'm very pleased to assure you that there is such an app - Star Walk.
Start the app and you see the night sky in its full beauty with stars and constellations. Start moving the night sky with your finger and you discover the Sun, the moon, Uranus, Pluto, Venus moving around. You'll see the horizon, ecliptic, the East, the South, the West, the North. All the night sky on your palm. As if in one of those sci-fi movies!
Tilt your iPhone 3GS to activate augmented reality and see the stars that are above you.
Choose any celestial body and read the general info about, it for more detailed knowledge use the Wikipedia links that forward you straightly to the article about the object you've selected.
Look for the stars, planets, constellations or messier objects in the list and see them on the night sky.
Travel in time by changing the actual date and time in the app to see for example the night sky when you were born.
Choose the place on Earth from where you want to gaze the stars so if you're apart from your beloved you can easily stargaze together
The graphics in Star Walk are really amazing as the sky moves very smoothly without any graphical hiccups. The UI is so user friendly that you don't need any manuals to be able to find all necessary features and settings.
The sound is future like. It reminds me of the fantasy films. They appear when you press icons and change settings. If you don't like you may just switch it off.
There are two modes for viewing the night sky: day mode that is when you simply surf through the program and night mode (with dim red colors) that is when you use the app at night not to make you blind of the bright screen of your device.
You may switch on or of the images of constellations on the night sky.
Switch on/off the sound
Customize the brightness of stars to be able to see only those stars that are visible to you as most of the sky can't often be seen on the real starry night.
"The astronomy picture of the day" is another cool feature that can make you one step closer to astronomy and to becoming a real fan. The real pictures made by real astronomers are constantly added to the app and the users are informed about new pictures appeared by "Push" notifications. This is really amazing. Besides, these pictures can be yours! You may send them to VITO Technology and they'll add so that thousands of astronomer lovers can appreciate your photos.
What is more, with new features you can share these pictures with your friends in social nets!
It may seem a bit pricy. Though you may think that you buy the whole Universe to bring it always with you. Do not hesitate, you won't be disappointed.
5 promo codes for people who would like to try Star Walk! A cool astronomy app for everybody who wants to admire the sky up there.
Please write which one you used and give me any feedback, impressions, suggestions

You know, just for your safety, you shouldnt go around (dont take this the wrong way) yelling out your app for a reason.....(Here at ModMyI nobody would do this) but it might promote people to...crack it..(Which is why many people dont go around shouting " LOOK AT MY $1.99 APP! IT COULD DO SO MANY COOL THINGS! BUT ONLY FOR THOSE WHO PAY FOR IT! " that kind of thing, I know your a developer, and you wish to place a ad (which is fine I think).

oh..really? thanks for the heads up. The fact is that I am fairly new here and I am not entirely sure yet what is allowed, what is not allowed and how to best use the forums. I do obviously take part in other discussions but have also seen some people asking for suggestions about their apps and doing some promotions.. hence I wanted to do it as well!

Just got the app. WOW!
Its like looking into heaven! 10/10!
BTW- Putting up a ad here is fine. But just watch out for sites that have reported crackers. (Cant say what site according to the fourm rules)
But just keep a heads up.
