Can't get enough of your favorite iPhone apps , like Flight Tracker, Photogene and TweetDeck? Well, NASA is hoping to add one more to your list of favorite iPhone applications.

The space agency today released NASA App 1.1 for the Apple Inc. iPhone and iPod Touch products.

The updated application is designed to help users spot near-Earth orbiters, see NASA videos , stay up-to-date with NASA launch information and countdown clocks, and get easy access to NASA's Twitter feeds.

NASA App 1.1 adds several new features, like new content about space missions, and visible sighting opportunities for orbiters from the user's home location or through searched locations.

NASA said there are no plans at this point to extend the offering to other mobile platforms like Google Android , BlackBerry from Research in Motion Ltd. or Microsoft's Windows Mobile.

The application is available for free from Apple's App Store.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
