Nasa Launches Free iPhone App
November 17th, 2009
Space puns ftw! NASA recently released a free iPhone app that promises a ton of content for space fans, including mission details, videos, images, and twitter feeds. The mission portion is probably the geekiest part of the app, allowing users to read mission details, view launch or arrival countdown clocks, and even follow the orbit of certain spacecraft.
The images section will surely be a hit, because it’s basically a treasure trove of cool and free wallpapers for you iPhone. There are two galleries available – the NASA image of the day and the Astronomy picture of the day. Is there any difference between the image of the day and the picture of the day?
The videos and updates sections offer more content, with YouTube clips in the former and twitter feeds in the latter.
Check out the app’s official page for more info. If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can download it here (iTunes link). Do you think the other government agencies should come up with their own apps? I wonder what the IRS app would offer.
