Free App Gives Handheld Access To Multimedia
The New Media Team at NASA's Ames Research Center at Moffett
Field, CA, has released an application to deliver mission
information, videos, images and news updates to people's
fingertips. The NASA App for the iPhone and iPod touch is now
available free of charge on the Apple App Store.
"Making NASA more accessible to the public is a high priority
for the agency," said Gale Allen, director of Strategic Integration
and Management for NASA's Exploration Systems Mission Directorate
in Washington. "Tools like this allow us to provide users easy
access to NASA information and progress at a fast pace."
The NASA App collects, customizes and delivers an extensive
selection of dynamically updated information, images and videos
from various online NASA sources. Users can access NASA countdown
clocks, the NASA Image of the Day, Astronomy Image of the Day,
online videos, NASA's many Twitter feeds and other information in a
convenient mobile package.
Space Station tracking on the NASA App
The NASA App also allows users to track the current positions of
the International Space Station and other spacecraft currently
orbiting Earth in three views: a map with borders and labels,
visible satellite imagery, or satellite overlaid with country
borders and labels.
"We're excited to deliver a wide range of up-to-the-minute NASA
content to iPhone and iPod touch users," said Gary Martin, director
of the New Ventures and Communications Directorate at Ames. "The
NASA App provides an easy and interesting way for the public to
experience space exploration."
