New Optional Features in 6.2!
We’ve been in the lab for the past two years working on something really big. It’s so big, in fact, that only one name seemed to fit: SUPERMASSIVE.
SUPERMASSIVE is an optional add-on for Sky Guide that gives you access to three amazing features:
+ HIGH DEFINITION ZOOM
Enjoy seamless detail in thousands of galaxies, nebulae, clusters and planets!
+ 50× LARGER CATALOGS
Dive in to 114 million stars, the complete NGC/IC catalog and so much more.
+ CINEMATIC TOURS
Discover the cosmos with breathtaking tours, an exclusive audiovisual series.
Who is SUPERMASSIVE for?
In short, it’s for people who love astronomy! If you like exploring the beauty and vastness of the universe, this is your ticket. We’re offering a free two-week trial period followed by an annual subscription ($9.99 USD annually, price varies by country) so try it and see if you like it. If you wish to cancel at any time during the trial period, you can find a Manage Your Subscriptions link both in the confirmation email or on the page where you download SUPERMASSIVE.
How do I get it?
Update to the latest version and look for the new SUPERMASSIVE option in the main menu.
NEW FOR iOS 10
Tired of those drab, text-only satellite notifications? We’ve launched our notifications into orbit with an animated Earth view showing the satellite’s path.
Filters now have a whole new feeling. Take an X-ray Peek at the sky or Pop a filter for full screen exploration. You can also use 3D Touch on your Sky Guide app icon for Quick Actions and a compact version of the Sky Guide widget.
New for watchOS 3
Sky Guide for Apple Watch has been streamlined into three categories: Sun activity, Moon, and the International Space Station. Swipe to switch pages or use the Digital Crown to view more detailed information. Your last viewed page will be saved for viewing in the Dock. Keep Sky Guide in your Dock for instantaneous launches.
Pull down your satellite notifications to see an animated Earth view detailing the satellite’s path.
NEW BY POPULAR DEMAND
You can now select a custom latitude and longitude or use the map to find what the sky will look like in very remote locations. It's great for planning what you'll see on those camping trips.
No, I meant to tap THAT
Selecting stars and deep sky objects is now more intelligent and intuitive
We've added a new Meteor Showers category plus you can now search for stars by HR, HD and HIP catalog numbers. Galaxy icons now align and scale as do open cluster icons. Satellite passes are now more accurate than ever.
iPad Pro keyboard shortcuts: cmd+F = Find an object, cmd+, = Preferences, cmd+M = Main Menu, cmd+T = Time Controls
A brilliant twist? If we wanted to get technical we'd call this our new high-dynamic-range point-spread-function stellar rendering engine with diffraction spikes. Translation? They’re the most beautiful and realistic stars you've ever experienced.
Thank you to all for your continued support and feedback! If you haven’t reviewed Sky Guide in some time, please consider leaving a new review and let us know what you think of the latest update.
