NASA Launches New App for Android

NASA has launched the free NASA App for Android, a new application designed for mobile devices that run the open source Android platform.

"The NASA App for iPhone and iPad has been a phenomenal success with over five million downloads so far," said Jerry Colen, NASA App project manager at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. "Making a version of the NASA App for Android has been the number one request from users. We are delighted to fulfill this request and put NASA’s amazing content into the hands of millions of Android users around the world."

The NASA App for Android showcases a huge collection of NASA content, including images, videos on-demand, live streaming video from NASA Television, mission information, feature stories and breaking news. Users also can find sighting opportunities for the International Space Station and track the current positions of spacecraft currently orbiting Earth. App users also easily can share NASA content with their friends and followers on Facebook, Twitter or via e-mail.
