We've moved! Check us out at Graphic Junkie. A new design inspiration website.
Not sure why this didn’t happen sooner, but NASA has released their very own iPhone App for free and it rocks.
The app is packed with features. You can track current space missions with photos, videos, and news for each one. Additionally, for some of those missions, you can track where in space they are… live. It’s pretty insane. Just select the International Space Station and track what part of the Earth it’s flying over.
Personally my favorite part of the app is the videos and the current location of satellites. It’s like having a high tech super spy tracker in your pocket at all times. The photos section is also split into two. One for the NASA Image of the Day, and the other for the Astronomy Picture of the Day. Instant access, love it.
There are four main categories to the app; Missions, Images, Videos, and Updates:
Here you can select any current or past mission to see detailed information. If it’s a future mission you get a countdown until launch, and if it’s a past mission you get a count since launch. Each mission has four sub-categories: Space Tracker to see where in space it currently is, updates specific to that mission, photos, and videos specific to that mission. You can also share the mission via email with anyone.
Here is where you have the options of the NASA photo of the day or the Astronomy photo of the day. Great feature as I’m always wondering what the APOD is while I’m on the go.
The videos section is lengthy. Right now I’ve got over 50 videos available. This seems to include all of the mission videos in one place.
This is the one place to get all updates for all missions. It even includes what astronauts are tweeting from space!
The app is free and is well worth your time. Do yourself a favor and learn something. This app is awesome.
