NASA App 1.1 gives users launch countdown info, mission data and info for orbiter viewing

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
