Some new features that have been added to the NASA App include maps, information and links to every NASA visitor center, weather forecasts in the spacecraft sighting opportunities section, a section about NASA’s programs, and the ability to save, print and access favorite items, and also bookmark images. The NASA App 2.0 runs only on devices running iOS 5.0 or higher.
The NASA app for iPhone and iPod Touch allows people to explore NASA content on their iPhone and iPod Touch and experience the thrill of watching the NASA team at work, all in one great app. The iPhone and iPod Touch app has been downloaded by approximately 4.7 million users so far.
