 Details about the new features in version 1.5

This is the first release of the SkyMap application for Windows Phone 7.5 (“Mango”) .

It exposes the full implementation of the point to sky feature, using the compass sensor (if available). Now, users can point their phones to the sky, and SkyMap will help them identify and explore the stars, constellation and other objects in the sky.

The new version of SkyMap now supports the fast app switching mechanism, which allows users to instantly come back to the application. Also the system tray and application bar respect the night mode theme.

The Windows Phone 7 (NoDo) users were not forgotten, as SkyMap 1.4 became available for download a few days ago. This version improves the existing UI bars, making them more consistent with the familiar look and feel of the standard application bar. The usability of these UI bars was highly improved (by using expandable text descriptions).

SkyMap 1.5 includes all the features that were added in SkyMap 1.4.
