Sky Guide

ARKit, the augmented reality SDK from Apple, was used to write Sky Guide a popular stargazing App  by Fifth Star labs.

Apple demonstrated Star Guide at the Apple Park campus in Cupertino. How all App developers would love to  have Apple demo their App. But this App deserved it.

Sky Guide is a great example of augmented reality in action giving you an animated sky.  Just point your phone to see the constellations. 

With the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone 10 you can superimpose constellation maps on top of the actual sky by looking through the phone

Is it a star or Saturn? Simply hold it overhead and Sky Guide automatically adjusts to your viewing direction so you can easily identify stars, planets, constellations and more.
