    Default Blackberry and the stars, satellites & planets

    Does anyone know off an app for a Blackberry to look at the night sky?

    Can't help you with BB but I'd suggest lose the BB and get an iPhone. Starwalk is perhaps the BEST reason to own an iPhone.

    Thanks for the advice Simon but just got the BB, I have to make it work before 20 Jan 2012 (going on holiday Upington, Augrabies, Cederberg, Lamberts Bay, Paternoster Light house & Blouberg) If I don’t find an app, I will shoot a hole in the screen and then look through the hole.

    This is the only thing I can find, but because of the general absence of accelerometers and compasses in Blackberry, these aren't all that useful.

    Ok Simon thanks, it’s fairly new according to Nashua, and I know for sure there is a compass and a GPS in the BB 9810, will have a look for the accelerometers. My mother tongue being Afrikaans what is an accelerometer? (I’ve asked “Word” for synonyms but Word don’t know any)
