    It's apps like this one that really give Android its edge. You hold your phone up to the sky and see a map of what you're looking at, including planets, stars, constellations, and so much more!

    Perhaps one of the most "useful" features is the ability to search for just about any celestial body. For example, in the screenshot below, after searching for "Saturn", you are told which direction to look for Saturn until you have it focused in your screen.

    Here is a great demo video from Google
