NASA launched their official iOS app back in 2009. A little over a week ago, NASA updated the app to NASA App 2.0. The update includes a major redesign from the 1.0 version of the app. Apart from the interface redesign, the update also included a news section, feature content section, and more.

A team at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California completely rebuilt NASA’s app with a faster and more intuitive interface. In addition, the team has added new features like weather forecasts in the spacecraft sighting section, maps and information about NASA visitor centers, and the ability to “favorite” items for later access or printing.

Jerry Colen, the NASA App project manager, commented on the new update,

“This is our first major redesign of the NASA App for iPhone since our initial release in 2009. We are really excited about this release and think users are going to love the new interface and features.”

Of course, the NASA App is free to download. Check it out and start browsing images, viewing mission information, and exploring the new update.
