Android Apps for Night Photography

I've listed some of my favorite Android apps for planning and executing your night photos below.

This is an amazingly comprehensive program that lets you visualize how the night sky will look at your location, does exposure and focus calculations, shows how star trails will looks, and much more!
The Photographer's Ephemeris
This app is similar to PhotoPills, with lots of useful features for planning your images. I prefer PhotoPills for night photography planning, but this is a great app too.
Google Earth
The Android version of Google Earth allows you to take its incredibly detailed maps from satellite images with you anywhere.
Light Pollution Map
This app shows how much light pollution you can expect at any location you want to shoot.

Stellarium Mobile Sky Map
This program shows exactly how the night sky will appear from any location around the world at any date and time you choose.
With this app, you can point your mobile device up, and it will give a real-time view of objects in the sky. You can also move forward in time to see how the sky will change at night.
The AccuWeather app is well-designed and easy to use.
Weather Underground
The Weather Underground app isn't as comprehensive as the webiste but is still useful.

My Aurora Forecast
If you're looking to photography the northern lights, My Aurora Forecast will show how strong the lights are expected to be for the next few days.
This app makes the flashlight easier to use on your phone and includes a compass.
DSLR Remote
This app allows you to use your mobile device as an invervalometer and can be used wirelessly if your camera has an infrared receiver.
