Anyone got this app? It's free. Has a database of all the planets they're finding around other stars, where they are etc. But what blows me away is how often and regularly they're finding new ones. Fascinating.

I've had it since I got my phone, an excellent free app.

Really good for a freebie, they are continually updating it's capabilities, you cam now zoom in and see it's relative orbits in 3d. You can order planets by lots of perameters including size and orbital Periods, so you can see how similar things are to earth.

If you're familiar with the iPhone terminology, it uses push notifications.

I'll just add my thumbs up to this great app. :thumbsup:
Also, even though it is free, I think it is worthwhile showing your appreciation to the author by making a "donation" and purchasing the Ad-Free version. Details can be found on the first screen under About / Remove Ads. Only costs $1.19 which is a small price to pay for such a great app!
