What about Stellarium? I have used many star gazer apps (see my comment posted on this article: maclife.com/article/reviews/app_showdown_star_gazers ) and of all the free ones, Stellarium is by far the best.

Starry does not hold a candle to Stellarium. Stellarium has far superior display of star names, much greater ability to zoom (including all the way in to see the Galilean moons of Jupiter), way better display of constellations, it works in both landscape and portrait mode, and in general has far more options.

Of course the best star gazer app I’ve found is SkySafari 3, but that costs money. Among free ones, Stellarium remains by far my favorite. This “Starry” app does not come close.
