NASA launches iPad application
Saturday 04 September 2010
NASA has landed on the iPad.
Nearly one year after launching a free application for the iPhone and the iPod Touch, the US space agency has created a program for the latest device from Apple.
The NASA App HD for the iPad is available for free at Apple's App Store.
"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," NASA App project manager Jerry Colen said.
"Now we've enhanced and expanded the application to include even more content and really take advantage of the iPad's larger screen," Colen said.
The NASA iPad application features live streaming video from NASA TV, launch schedules, current mission information, maps, on-demand video from NASA archives, feature stories, thousands of images and more.
