Astro planner for android new
      #5363213 - 08/11/12 11:35 AM

Hi folks,

I was wondering if any of you know of a planning software for androids- im talking a list generating tool where you can just input you criteria - time and date, location, min/max ra and dec or alt/az, mag. etc and then it just generates a list with all the objects.
Basically something like the Maxim DL tool under the observatory tab, but for android
I would imagine it is easier than making a typical planetarium software which abund for android platform, yet i was unable to locate a simple object generator tool

Although it won't "generate" an observation list for you, StarLog does allow you to import such a list and than log the objects on that list. You can also create and edit lists in the app itself. Have a look here for a demo.
