Star Walk 2
Star Walk 2 is a great app that turns your iOS device into your personal astronomy guide. The app lets you point your device to the sky and marks the position of various celestial objects. So if you wanted to know the names of stars or constellations you've been looking at every day, Star Walk 2 is a fantastic app. It even has an augmented reality mode that uses your phone's camera and features an overlay of the app's map of stars. This feature is very useful for budding astronomers. The app also has useful information such as sunrise, sunset, moon phase, star coordinates, and more. The best thing is that the app is currently free, although if you want additional content you will have to purchase it in the app.
