Excellent work, for both the program and the documentation!
Displays the night sky
The orrery program displays the night (and day!) sky on N900 devices. It displays constellations, and other astronomical information such as moon phase calendars
This is a great app and it's obvious that it required a lot of work. I'm not that into astronomy but this app may get me interested. I took one star off because of the font size. I wish there was a way to zoom in on some of the pages. I can't seem to read about half of the info even with reading glasses.
Yes, having a menu option that launches the opens the wiki page will definitely be in the next version. Obviously the current version needs quite a bit of "hildonizing" in order to fit in with the UI guidelines. I'm going to get at least some of that done before releasing the next version.
Needs a help screen. I somehow got into a pan/zoom mode while touching the screen (drag a sqiggle ?), and have no idea how to get back to the normal view.
Ditto for pan left/right (it's not clear to use the bottom of the screen only).
An option for larger fonts, and normal english rather than 'azimoth' etc.
Gain a star because of the handy flash light features.
Helpful application with a lot of interesting information. Would it be possible for you to increase the font size, or is there some built in way to increase font size? It's so small that it is very hard to read. Also, it would be helpful for some explanation of what is meant by "deep sky observatories". Does this mean Hubble, etc.? Thanks!
