I have installed Heavens-Above, SkEye, Messier catalog, Phases of the Moon, Aurora Forecast, Sunrise & Sunset, JoveMoons, Moons of Jupiter, Moons of Saturn, Compass and Accurate Barometer.

I use the Moon Phase, aurora forecast and the Jupiter Moons most. Otherwise I prefer a paper star atlas.

Clear outside from FLO is a great little app too :)

Put in your location and it gives a forecast of the cloud cover in your area.

I have now also installed Clear outside.

Don't like the results it shows, though. Coming weekend is the last dark astronomically dark weekend, plus a new moon and we will only get clouds.:help:
