Master the Solar System with the Planets App

Whether its Lightsabers and Jedis or Vulcans and the Enterprise, or something more realistic like comets, the cosmos fascinate a large number of people. And why not? The sheer vastness and mysterious aura of outer space has an irresistible pull that always leaves you wanting more. While some people go to observatories or hop on rockets to sate their thirst for stellar knowledge, there is a more feasible way to do so.

This method is in the form of Planets by XDA Junior Member AMQTech. The Planets app provides you a plethora of facts and statistics regarding, yes you guessed it, planets. With an intuitive and simplistic interface, Planets lets you learn a significant amount about the solar system in layman terms, proving helpful  as well as preventing you from going over to the dark side of the Force. It does this by offering information for all the major objects in our solar system, and packaging this information into an easy-to-navigate and user-friendly application.

Head on over to the Planets application thread to get started on your space journey, but keep in mind that the app does not cover the Death Star just yet.
