    That let's me point my phone up at the sky have that app use all the sensors in my phone label what I'm looking at.
    Does such an app exist?

    Sometimes it's a little wonky but gets the job done for sure.

    It's been cloudy every night since I installed the app. Typical New England weather.

    Sky Map works pretty good. Using Venus as a reference I identified Capella with it. You really can't see many stars in the city.

    To refine this app I'd have it use my camera and have the star names as an overlay of what I'm looking at. I'd pay $9.99 USD for that one. Sky Map is cool but that feature would take it to the next level.

    Hi

    Better than that IMO ie SkEye. You can strap your phone to a telescope and use the phone to align it.

    If the star is centered in Skeye, the name appears at the top of the page in an info bar.

    Sky Safari's smaller version might do what you want. I've had the Plus version since it came out. (They have a pro version) That would be a paid app.
