Planet Finder + is an astronomy application that you can use to show exactly what you see when you look up at the sky. You just need to open the application and point it to the sky.

It allows you to spot the planets as well as stars, constellations, and galaxies.

You can choose different viewpoints:
Planetarium - this is the most user-friendly view where you just point your device to the sky in order to see the planets, stars, constellations, and galaxies.

Astronomy Compass - this is the most efficient view to discover where the planets, brightest stars or galaxies are located around you.

Solar system simulator - this is the view to get a feel for our solar system, its dimensions and your orientation within it.

In all the different views you can use a player interface to check past and future positions of the celestials.

You can explore:
Most of the planets and their moons in a 3D simulator.
(For Jupiter and Saturn you can check the real time postion of their moons.
For the Sun you get information about it's current number of sunspots.)

The rise, set and transit times of celestials.

The structure of the Milkyway (the Milkyway arms, the center, the inner bulge, and bar)

You can configure:
MySky - a set of 10 celestials that are displayed in the Planetarium view and the Astronomy Compass view. This allows you to find and display all known celestial bodies that mankind has discovered.

You can enable:
Your camera in the planetarium view. (Augmented reality feature)

You can share:
A screenshot from the planetarium view.

It's extremely easy! Just launch the application to obtain an instant overview of the planets surrounding you. You're in a geocentric position in the middle of the screen, on Earth, and the planets are being displayed around you. If a planet is above the Compass Ring and is highlighted, it's visible. If the planet is below the Compass Ring, towards the center of the Earth, it is shadowed and below your horizon. The same applies to all the other celestial types. Activate your starcraft engines and quickly travel around in the universe.

Planet Finder + comes with an advanced Augmented Reality Camera: Just point your phone to the sky and Planet Finder + will instantly switch to Augmented Reality Mode. Spot planets, stars, and constellations through your mobile camera, take a snapshot and share via Facebook, email, twitter or MMS!

Interact with the Augmented Reality View by activating its Player. Play, pause, rewind and fast forward the Solar System. This will render the trajectories of the planets and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

You can also track planets, stars, constellations, and galaxies. Just follow the direction of the arrows and you'll spot your object in seconds!

Switch back to 2D Compass or Text View by lowering your mobile phone. Get more detailed information by touching a celestial item in the text list. (for instance its rise/transit/set times)

Hit the Solar system simulator 3d icon to switch to a 3d heliocentric view of the solar system. Switch between real and boosted sizes and get amazed by it's gigantic proportions. Switch between inner, outer and full solar system views and navigate to a planet by using the search function.

Single tap the 3D Planet for a detailed 3D view of its texture and its moons.
