This one's for all you astronomers out there. Google has just updated Google Sky Map to version 1.6. You were keeping count, right? The update brings two new features to the app:

  • Time Travel: Travel through time to view the sky as it looked in the past or as it will look in the future. You can also speed up time to watch events
    like eclipses and conjunctions
  • MultiTouch: Easily zoom in & out or rotate display using just two fingers
    on devices that support multi-touch input

Very, very cool. Download links are after the break. [Google] Thanks, El Jefe!

Anyone else have a problem after the update? When I tap on the app, it says "The linked program is no longer installed on this phone."

Edit: I tried moving it to the SD card and back to the phone and now it works.
