Stellarium Brings a 3D Planetarium To Your BlackBerry PlayBook

Stellarium Stellarium4

Stellarium is an amazing 3D planetarium software that was just ported to the PlayBook. The app is based on the open source Stellarium Linux/Windows project and does a great job of making it all touch friendly. I am not sure if the developer is associated with the Stellarium project but either way I have to say I am impressed with how this app packs the whole view of the sky into your PlayBook.

Features include:

  • GPS and magnetometer(compass) support for automatic location detection and point-and-view functionality
  • Asterisms and illustrations of the constellations
  • Realistic Milky Way and images of nebulae including full Messier catalogue
  • Azimuthal and equatorial grids
  • Celestial object search, powerful zoom
  • Configurable location, landscape, projections,…

If you are an astronomy buff of simply want to learn more check out Stellarium for $1.99 in App World

  1. I LOVE this app… It’s neat to take it outside w/you and get that awesome blue print of the sky and then to put the PlayBook aside and still see it + get extra info on it… Love it!!!!
