Exoplanet has some of the snazziest graphics of any science app out there, and it will make you feel less alone in the universe to boot. This app is essentially a database of all known exoplanets, or planets outside of the solar system. Each exoplanet has its own info page (supported by ads), complete with discovery year, information on orbit and home star and mass. For those who want to go in-depth, Web links lead to scientific papers on each planet.
The app includes accessible background information on what exoplants are and how they’re detected, as well as an exoplanet news feed and a graph feature that allows you to plot arbitrary bits of data, like discovery year versus surface gravity. Most enthralling is a gorgeous, swipeable map of the Milky Way that allows users to “fly” their way from exoplanet to exoplanet.
