Hi Everyone,
My wife recently got a tablet thingy and we wanted to get Stellarium for it. Because it doesn't run Windows but instead uses Android (I think) we have not been able to find a workable version anywhere. Does anyone know where to get Stellarium for Android or is there something else we could get (for free!)?
Thanks in advance for any help.

On my Asus Transformer and Galaxy SII I have the follwing:

Google Sky Map
SkEye
Astro Panel
Heavans Above
Star Chart
Mobile Observatory

All these pretty much can give you the same kind of info Stellarium can and have proved very useful in my time learning the sky

There have been talk about a Stellarium port for Android for quite some time. A major obstacle used to be the lack of a port of the Qt libraries for Android, but they have been ported now. The other great obstacle that remains is that no-one in Stellarium's developer team has an Android device (yet). :(
