iTunes Apps for Night Photography

There are a large number of applications made just for iTunes that can help you plan your night shots. I list some of my favorites 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 iTunes 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.
Although this app isn't geared toward photography, it can help you learn a lot about what you are photographing 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.

This is a mobile version of the website and helps you predict cloud cover throughout North America.
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.
Unleashed - Camera Remote
This app allows you to use your phone as an intervalometer. The app is free, but you do have to buy a $200 bluetooth device that attches to your camera.
