Description

This app is a collection of astronomical tools and charts perfect for anyone interested in astronomy. The calculations are of a high enough accuracy for almost all amateur astronomy applications.

Due to the fact that astronomy is often best when far from civilization where mobile signal may not always be reliable. Therefore, this app is (almost) completely self-contained and does not require any internet connection for most of the information available. The only exceptions to this are the SOHO solar images and NGC/IC, Messier, Caldwell and Binary star images and weather forecast which are loaded dynamically, as well as the refreshing of satellite, comet and near-earth asteroid data.

The observation log, allows you to save observations in the applications, as well as manage a list of astronomical equipment and observing locations. This equipment is also available for use in the Telescope Calculator.

Night mode turns the display red for night observations without having to ruin your night vision.

Most of the data screens have an option to share the data via email, or other similar apps able to accept HTML content.

When using Android 4.0+, the Upcoming Events is able to add events to the device’s calendar by using a long click.

The Astronomical Time is also available as a Home screen widget. To use the widget, the app needs to be installed onto the internal storage instead of the SD card, otherwise it will not be available.

Android 2.2+ is now supported, but Android 4.0+ to get the full user experience.

The direction sensors of the device may need to be calibrated if the map appears to be pointing in the wrong direction. To calibrate the device’s sensors wave the device in a figure-8 pattern.

If the direction is still off, then the direction calibration can be adjusted manually by changing the setting in the Settings screen.

The list of tools in the app are as follows:
– Upcoming astronomical events
– What’s up now
– What’s up tonight
– Angular separation calculator
– Astronomical constants and symbols

  • App review is very difficult process and I appreciate your effort for provide useful information. I recently visit one <a href=”http://www.appsontapp.com”>Android App</a>   Some website is very useful which is giving such data.

    app expired.

  • It allows connecting to shared folders hosted upon Windows or Samba servers over Wifi/3G/4G. It permits handling many connections with authentication. It comes down with simultaneously a pump register browser and also a SMB file browser. It offers install and upload assistance for files and also folders. May perhaps synchronize folders. An individual can rename, delete, get register details, create folders open town and remote files. It comes down with share feature for gallery. WINS server, LMHOSTS and aired address options are really accessible for name resolution. Browse and also transfer intents are really available for third party applications. Root access is certainly not needed.

    This insists that my playbook bluetooth is turned off and wants to turn it on.  Then subsequently fails to turn bluetooth on, whether bluetooth had been already turned on or not.
     
    My play book is on OS 2.1.0.1526, upgraded on first use.

  • mithun

    is this working or not?

  • davidm49

    Am I the first commenter out of 14000 downloads? I guess it didn’t work for anyone else, either. I downloaded it, installed it with DDPB, opened it. There was a “wait” circle going round and round, and a message saying that it was turning on Bluetooth. And it continued going round and round and round and round. Eventually, I closed the app and turned on BT to give the app a little help. Same thing again. I even connected with a BT keyboard so that the BT would be active. No help.
     
    For the first installation, I had downloaded to PC. Maybe it would help if the .bar was already on the PB, so I uninstalled, downloaded to PB, installed again, and opened the app. It still couldn’t start Bluetooth, and it couldn’t detect that Bluetooth was already running.
     
    This is one big waste of time. I only hope that it wasn’t a sneaky way of dumping some malware in my PB.
     
    I suspect it will take a lot more than 769 kB to defeat the “Blackberry Bridge” cr**ware that BB uses to cripple the normal L2CAP functioning.

  • AdityaRahul

    me too …its completely waste of time…
    it is obvious that blackberry device open their data ports only to blackberry desktop software
    so do not make yourselves fools….

  • davidm49

    @davidm49 I should have said, this comment applies to “Bluetooth File Transfer for Playbook and BB10”. That is the page where I wrote it, but it seems to appear on other pages of this site as well. I have installed other apps successfully with DDPB.

  • rickBBPBstressD

    @davidm49 Thanks Dave, I wish they would put all known non working BARs in a section for developers and labled as such. Suckers like me spend hours of wasted time downloading and trying to install useless apps.

  • davidm49

    @davidm49 I’ve been looking through the apps that I sideloaded in the past. The only one working is Kindle, and I didn’t get the .bar for that from this site, but from http://www.blackberryos.com . I thought I had Skype Beta working at one time, but it’s not working now. Maybe an OS update made it inoperable.

  • Marvelous.

  • EroticDesktops

    Try this site, it may help you. Goodluck! http://eroticdesktops.co.uk

  • Canki

    I sideloaded AVG it without any trouble on my PB and it works. Since the Playbook is not a phone, some features don’t seem to be available (“Location” or “Shout”, for example, ’cause the device doesn’t have an actual phone number), but others work. No the full enchilada, but it’s better than nothing, I guess.

  • torquebhp

    This isn’t compatible with blackberry – and this is also not an official release. Please remove it from this site.  Torque is only to be distributed from the official Google and Blackberry app stores.

    Distance and Area Measurement doesn’t seem to find the .bar file when I try to download.  When I search the downloads I can find the .apk, but not the compatible one.  Any help is appreciated.

    just bought a second hand playbook to show pictures to clients. One thing it does not do is to read a large number of saved outlook messages I have. How can I get the playbook to read a saved .msg outlook message?
