Fifteen days in now and we have a superb app as a free download. The same app for everyone too, always nice. Although I am thoroughly enjoying Uno on my BlackBerry Z30 from day 14. I'm still excited every morning to wake up and check BlackBerry World for my free gift of the day. There's ten days to go and I'm hoping for some great apps as we approach the end. To see the full list of free downloads so far, you can check back on the original post.

Today, you can go star gazing with StarTracker. A pretty awesome app by the looks of it. Educational too. As always, if you're not seeing the banner, try refreshing BlackBerry World. Others have had luck with refreshing it a few times. Alternatively, you can try searching the app in BlackBerry World or use the link below.

You can join in on the discussion in the forums too and let us know when you see tomorrow's gift.

Very nice program. The sort of thing that will make people on other phones jealous too.

HotFix

I bought it a long time ago to show off the awesomeness of my Z10 to all the haters out there, and it is truly an awesome app.

They keep cranking out updates and I can say I am very impressed with the level of effort the keep putting into the app.

While not a "business" app, this one certainly has a nice wow factor.

Couldn't agree more. I bought this one for the same reason.

Great app and I'm glad to see it make the cut for the 25 days gift.

davinci4real

One question pls: what else can I do? I can't even find the menu button? I can only gaze that's all. Can't find any menu button, can't swipe down from the Top, can't do anything else. Pls help

From Zuri my Z10.

OTCHRussell

If you scroll down on the page in app world where you found the app, there are some instructions.

Posted via CB10 on my Q10

davinci4real

Edit: figured it out. I was lying down and using this. It only shows the menu when using it facedown.

From Zuri my Z10.

That's a really beautiful app! Now I just have to learn to use it :-)

Just shake your device a little and the HUD should appear.

Only 10 days left! Dam! But looking on the bright side , when it is over that will be 10 days less of winter!

This is such a cool app that I don't know what to say! Awsome!

RobC450

Wow! I was planning to buy this one anyway, but free makes it even better.

Now if I could only download it. Tapped on the "2.99/Free" button, button went dim as normal and then nothing.
I'll try again later today, maybe there's a technical problem somewhere.

RobC450

Downloading now. Must have been a temporary glitch somewhere.

Poirots Progeny

Superb app choice!

I love Google skymap (or whatever it's called now) and this is an excellent option also!

Posted via CB10

allwi

This one looks sleeker than Google Skymap - but I can't search (but typing) for a constellation, or how do you search for 'Southern Cross'??

kidbagel

Look for "Crux" among the constellations listed. Works like a charm.

jelp2

Love the app but my z10 compass won't calibrate!

sklotz2000

You too? Are you also running 10.2.1.1055?

jelp2

Yea, but I can't remember if it started before that or not. Ive even tried to load some older compass .bars to try to get it working..no go.

sklotz2000

Yep, same here. I tried side loading 4 or 5 older compass .bars -but no luck either.

jelp2

There's a lot of people on 1055, I would think there would be more inquiries about the compass if it was an isolated issue with the os. Either way, I hope there's a solution or new leak if need be.

astrodan13

Nice! Unfortunately for me I snapped this up when it first came out. Very nicely done app. Enjoy it everyone! Even if you don't think you'll use it, still grab it. Works awesome on a Z10!

sklotz2000

Okay, I finally figured it out!!

BlackBerry has been tracking my most used apps and is now using them for their 25 days of Christmas.
This would explain why I already have every one of these apps.

Has Crackberry/BlackBerry forgotten that there are more 6 and 7 devices out there than 10? There are lots of us stuck in contracts for another year or two, or are happy to stay with their old devices.

Thanks BlackBerry. This is a nice app. Interestingly cool!

Rockin' with the Q10…

FeralCat1

Hi, cool app... Ok, orientation question... When use of app do I hold my Z30 in hands like reading a message or do I need to hold device up to sky for correct orientation to which stars, constellations etc. I am looking at? Basically trying to understand correct device placement. I am seeing things on screen that human eyes unable, very powerful Application and looks great. Thanks... Is it possible in settings to actually hold device in hands while viewing systems above your head or is the orientation only which direction (Opposite) from face of screen? What element of device is the application using? Is it the camera lens, so switching cameras will create a different user experience? appreciate the feedback...

boujwalii

Check out the write up beneath the app it gas the details but you can slide it around while hiding it in your hands to get the constellation you want etc.

Beautiful app. The BeWeather Pro has also been well used.

Nice app! You can learn something from this one :)

Essential App. However this should NOT be one of the first BB10 apps you download when you got a BB10 phone. If you do other apps will disappoint; this one is extremely well done and the implementation is super smooth. Other apps could learn something from this one.

omagoodness5

I'm confused...I thought it was supposed to be free but when I went to download it I was asked to enter my BlackBerry password.

thepotenza

Any possible way to download it? I missed downloading it on the day it was free.
