Archos 8o tablet - any good astro apps?


Recommended Posts

Bought my first tablet eg Archos 8o Cobalt 8" yesterday at Tescos and enjoying the experience including viewing my Youtube astro-clips! Spec seems pretty good [Android 4.0 = ice cream sandwich] and internet connection quick and easy. Screen size, slightly larger than wife's Kindle Fire, is more responsive and typing easy.

Tried the two cams outdoors last night - 2mp front cam has night mode boost so even my LP sky can be snapped! Tablet connects ok in obsy 100ft from house [my old Acer laptop controlling astrocam won't] so I can have my online Wikisky;-).

Any good astro apps you can recommend including the freebies!

Also how do I transfer pics to my laptop eg via supplied USB lead or via removable card? Laptop via USB says "new hardware" and requests "insert disc" which there isn't.

Thanks for your help.

The mobile observatory app is excellent.

There is a free version and a pay for version :laugh:

Runs like a dream and has loads of useful info.
