Star charts on iPhone

I don’t have one of those shiny new devices (twiddling my thumbs till June refresh) but one of my hiking buddies put me onto this site which shows star charts optimized for iPhones and other web-enabled “smart” phones from space.com (visit site). Wait for the ad to timeout and then you’ll get a similar image as below.
