Astronomy magazine debuts beginning astronomy tablet app
Today Astronomy magazine gives curious observers everywhere access to Discover Astronomy, its newest tablet app. Discover Astronomy is targeted at tablet users new to both the hobby and the brand. By acting as a personal observing tutor, the app guides users through viewing the night sky with their unaided eyes or through conventional binoculars.
Outfitted with interactive star charts, videos from the Astronomy staff, galleries of beautiful images, pronunciation guides, solar system observing tools, and informative articles, Discover Astronomy leverages the magazine’s editorial expertise to go one step further than competing astronomy apps.
“Discover Astronomy helps observers really understand the night sky and share it with others,” said Karri Ferron, Production Editor at Astronomy and editor of Discover Astronomy. “Other apps slow you down when you pick up binoculars or a telescope.”
