SkyMap was released on Windows 8 store. It can be installed for free on any
Windows 8 PC or tablet.
Here are a few instructions:
- activate point to sky by pointing the tablet above your head (start the motion
from under the horizon line)
- compass sensor on some Windows8 tablets are not very accurate - we hope
they'll be fixed by future driver updates; the sensor can be calibrated by
switching the tablet from portrait to landscape mode
- use Windows search and settings charms on sidebar interface to get more from
SkyMap app (swipe from right side of the screen or move the mouse there)
- click on a sky object to get details and click further on wikipedia link (for
some of them)
SkyMap Free for Windows 8 can be found here:
