This is a great use of mobile technology as is provides all of the information you need to enjoy a night out stargazing. Previously, I've used paper star charts, but those are outdated soon after you print them. I've also brought a laptop outside with me, but that gets a little clunky after a while. Plus, you really need a place to put the laptop down which gets tricky on a "dewy" night. Orionic provides everything you need and lets you carry it your pocket!
Orionic v1.2 is available for free by clicking the post title. The install is 1.25MB and requires the Pocket PC (or better) operating system.
