The Exoplanet app is a highly visual and interactive catalogue of all known exoplanets. Exoplanets are planets orbiting stars beyond our own Solar System. It is frequently updated whenever new discoveries are confirmed. An amazing model of the Milky Way lets you explore our universe all the way from the Solar System to the cosmic microwave background. This app has been developed and is maintained by a professional astronomer.
* Interactive visualisations and animations.
* Physical properties of all detected exoplanets and their host stars, updated on a daily basis.
* Stunning 3D model of our Milky Way showing the location of all known exoplanets. You can zoom into any planetary system, explore how the night sky and the constellations look from the surface of other planets, or zoom out and see other local galaxies and galaxy clusters as well as the cosmic microwave background.
* Visualisations of exoplanet orbits and the habitable zone.
* Push notifications are sent out whenever a new planet is discovered.
* Augmented reality sky map: point the phone towards the sky to find an exoplanet!
* Interactive multi-touch correlation plots.
* Extensive background information on exoplanets and detection methods.
* Full support of planets in binary, triple, quadruple systems and orphan planets.
* Real-time ray tracing on the GPU.
* Experimental support for Philips hue (changes the color of the light bulbs according to the temperature of the currently selected star).
* Includes alternative identifiers from Uwingu.

Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely love all of the features with this app! I can see our confirmed Exo-Planets and KOI all in one place! I also love the snip its of info about each planet. Another plus is that the database of planets gets updated very frequently. Would recommend to friends who like space, astronomy or anything sciencey for that matter.
A great learning tool for all ages. Since first downloading this App its database of exoplanets have grown at least 5 fold. Over the past year or so there have been more "earth-like" exoplanets discovered - even one in our nearest star system which is 4.3 light years away.
One of my favorite Apps.
They billed me twice for the intergalactic pack!
They just charge me another $1.49 for the intergalactic pack which I already owned and asked me would I like to download it again for free?
