Best astronomy app?
I am a fairly new owner of a telescope and am looking for an app that I can hold up that will show me where to look for planets, etc? I downloaded this one, BlackBerry World - Astronomy, but the GPS doesn't seem to work. When I point north, it says I'm pointing west. Could the BB have an issue? I tried to look in the menus for GPS settings, but I couldn't find anything.

Have that app on my Play book too. The magnet does drift and rarely points correctly. If you have a Z10 or plan to upgrade get the excellent Star Tracker app, which is similar to the PlayBook app, but on the Z10 the magnet works correctly all the time, so the stars on the screen match the stars in the sky exactly. Great piece of software. Now, we just need the weather in the UK to clear up so we can do some actual astronomy! She was! Hehe!
