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
Easy to use, interesting and up to date
Have had this app for a number of years. Always ahead of the news, it has really useful and extensive information on exo planets.
I bought all of the add ons at early stage and they really enhance the app. I’ve tried others and none match up to this - it’s the definitive database for the amateur (and, possibly, professionals).
Easy to use and update
Had the app for a number of years and am pleased with results, would have been 5 stars but after purchasing the add ins one of them provides a consistent error message - the CMB and full zoom out add on does not function even after removing and re-loading the app, the error messages just invites a repeat purchase
I love the idea of space exploration, and find the whole topic interesting. The concept of exoplanets that could be inhabited by similar life forms is also another mind stretching concept. This app, with all the additional add Ons, a few pounds is amazing, and I love exploring it with my children.
