Streaming HD Video And Interactive Maps, All Free
NASA has unveiled NASA App HD, a new mobile application
designed for the iPad. NASA App HD features live streaming video
from NASA Television, an interactive map with links to all the
agency's field centers, quick links to feature stories and launch
schedules, a scrolling "alerts banner," and a "NASA Featured" link.
The first featured link focuses on women in space.
The app's landing page features the solar system, where users
can learn more about our neighborhood, the universe and NASA
missions. The app also enables users to experience and search
updated, higher resolution NASA Image of the Day and Astronomy
Picture of the Day collections and agency videos on demand.
"Our goal with the first NASA App was to deliver current mission
information, images, videos and news updates in the best possible
way for the iPhone and iPod touch," said Jerry Colen, NASA App
project manager at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA.
"Now we've enhanced and expanded the application to include even
more content and really take advantage of the iPad's larger
screen." The application is available free of charge both from NASA
and at the App Store from Apple.
