Sky Map Sky Map is a hand-held planetarium for your Android device. Use it to identify stars, planets, nebulae and more. Originally developed as Google Sky Map, it has now been donated and open sourced. The Map doesn't move/points in the wrong place Make sure you haven't switched into manual mode. Try calibrating your compass by moving it in a figure of 8 motion or as described here: Are there any magnets or metal nearby that might interfere with the compass? Try switching off "magnetic correction" (in settings) and see if that is more accurate. Why is autolocation not supported for my phone? In Android 6 the way permissions work has changed. The Map is jittery If you have a phone that lacks a gyro then some jitter is to be expected. Do I need an internet connection? No, but some functions (like entering your location manually) won't work without one. Can I help test the latest features? Sure! Sky Map est un planétarium portable pour votre appareil Android. Bien sûr !

Now imagine your Android reminding you in the morning to grab your umbrella if it’s going to rain later in the day. Now look back at your Android Phone! That’s right, your favorite Redmond techno-giant is sitting on a horse. Microsoft is today announcing the beta release of on{X} (pronounced ‘on-ex’), a website and Android app combo that provides users with extended control of their Android phones via remote programming. Before we dive in, the first question that needs answering is why is Microsoft releasing a product for Android? Shira Weinberg, the team’s Program Manager, explained that the less strict security model of the Android platform is well suited for deploying early stage technology previews. All users need to do is download the Android app and then configure rules on the on{X} site. I dare say Microsoft just pulled an Old Spice and got cooler.

Chrome tip: How to get Android phone notifications on your computer Google Chrome already supports rich notifications and Google Now is in the works for the browser, but I think there’s still a missing link: Phone notifications sent to your computer. With a free app and Chrome extension, I’ve been having my Android phone push certain alerts right to my Chromebook Pixel. Why is that handy? You’ll need two free things to add phone notifications to Chrome OS or your Chrome browser. Once you install those two item, you need to pair the browser add-on with your phone. Of course, I found out the hard way that you probably don’t want all of your phone notifications appearing. Tapping the settings in the phone app brings up customization options. Like this tip?
