It is based on the database published by the Planetary Habitability Laboratory @ UPR Arecibo.
Planets for which sufficient data is not currently available (such as missing mass or semi-major axis) are filtered out, but may show up with future database updates. The database can be updated online.
One of the key features is the graphical representation of the habitable zone of a parent star. Exoplanet Guide comes with a fully featured star chart plotting stars down to magnitude 6.4 plus all Messier objects!
Export all exoplanets with illustrations to KMZ format for use with Google Sky (part of Google Earth for the desktop) and explore with the convenience of a larger screen.
The Kepler Field of View overlay changes automatically with Kepler's seasonal rotation (subtle changes, though).

PrediSat is ready for translations! Google Translate isn't quite good enough (I've tried), so I need human translators.
If you would like to help, translation is crowdsourced at http://getlocalization.com/predisat
If for any reason you can't or don't want to use Get Localization, you can always email me.
PROBLEMS OR SUGGESTIONS:
Please email me or submit the problem or suggestion at http://tracker.pilot51.com. Usually Google Play comments or even Android crash reports don't tell me everything I need to know to fix it and there is no way for me to reply to either to ask for more details.

Voyage through our solar system with this fantastic Augmented Reality book and FREE app!
If you’ve got the iSolar System book, download this FREE Augmented Reality app to see planets, moons and spaceships spring up from the page into 3D life.
•Drive the Mars Rover around your floor!
•See the entire solar system laid out in space, orbiting around our majestic sun
•Fly a survey plane across the arid surface of Mars
•Watch a lunar elevator carrying people and cargo along a cable that stretches from Earth to the Moon!
•Look around a future moon base
Move your device around the animation to see an entire 360-degree view, and experiment with pinch, swipe and zoom to focus on different parts of the image. The Mars Rover is completely driveable, with touch screen commands to steer it and fire at rocks to sample their chemical content. In the Solar System animation, you can focus in on each planet and change the speed of their rotation using toolbar buttons.
You can even take a picture of yourself in the middle of the action – with planets orbiting your head, or the Mars Rover climbing your lap!
How it works:
To activate the AR animations, look for the blue Augmented Reality boxes in the pages of the iSolar System book. When you see the box, launch the app, point your device’s camera at the book spread and watch the planets spring to life!
This FREE app is available to anyone with a compatible Android Smartphone or Tablet with a camera.
The user specifies a location, which includes latitude, longitude and elevation. The application downloads the latest orbital information (Two Line Elements or TLEs). The application generates a transit prediction map which contains prediction paths for each transit within a specified alert radius.
*** Please try the ad-supported ISS Transit Prediction Free before purchasing to make sure you like the app ***
The main screen provides 4 buttons:
•Location - Press this button to add or select the prediction generation location
•Two Line Elements (TLE) - Press this button to download TLEs
•Generate Prediction - Press this button to start the prediction generation
•View Prediction - Press this button to view the prediction map or text file
The options menu provides the following:
•Locations - Press to add, select, edit or delete saved locations
•Predictions - Press to view, share or delete saved prediction maps
•Settings - Press to set user preferences
•DEM Files - Press to list or delete the downloaded DEM Data
•Help - Press to display this help page
•About - Press to display application version, credits and links
Add a named observing location by clicking the "Add Location" button accessible from the locations screen.
The location coordinates can be entered in any of three methods:
•Manually - Enter latitude, longitude and elevation in the text boxes. Positive values represent North and East, negative values South and West. Elevation can be entered in meters or feet above sea level depending on the current prediction units setting. As the coordinates are typed, the map pans to the location. Press the search button to search for a location.
•Map Input - Use the map to zoom and pan to a location. Pressing the Set button sets the location name, coordinates and elevation in the text boxes. The elevation of the current coordinates is retrieved using the specified elevation data source setting. Switch between map and satellite modes by toggling the Map/Sat button.
•GPS - By pressing the GPS button, the application uses GPS to obtain location coordinates and elevation.
Use the locations page accessible from the options menu to edit and delete saved locations.
Once a location has been entered and TLE have been downloaded, press the "Generate Prediction" button to begin prediction generation. The progress bar gives an indication of how long it will take to complete the process. Depending on your CPU speed, it can take a few minutes to generate the predictions. Pressing the cancel button will cancel the prediction.
Once the prediction generation is complete, the prediction map or text file can be viewed. Pressing the View Prediction button brings up the previously generated prediction map. The text button within the map view displays the prediction text. The Map/Sat button switches between Map mode and Satellite mode.
Within the map view press the Google Earth button to view the map in Google Earth. Press the save button to save the prediction for later viewing.
Within the transit information window, press the add to calendar button to create a calendar event (Android 4.0 or better).
Use the predictions page accessible from the options menu to view, share and delete previously saved prediction maps.
