Google Sky Map updated v1.5

This is without a doubt one of the coolest apps of any kind on any platform. The latest update just made it even better.

This app now has "Magnetic Correction" to fix the angles of the stars to more accurately depict how it would look if you were looking directly at them. I highly recommend this app for any Android user.
