NASA Unveils New iPad App With Expanded Content
NASA has unveiled NASA App HD, a new mobile application designed for the iPad. The application is available free of charge at the App Store from Apple.
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.
"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, Calif. "Now we've enhanced and expanded the application to include even more content and really take advantage of the iPad's larger screen."
The NASA App is available for free on the App Store for iPad or at: http://www.iTunes.com/AppStore
