Nasa's Official Android App Makes Me Cry

Downloading the new-and-official Nasa app on my Android phone today was a bittersweet experience, what with Atlantis—and NASA's—last journey ending today. There're heaps of features considering it's free—live Nasa TV, images, future mission details *sniffles* and sighting opportunities.

Judging by the information supplied to me, the next opportunity I have to spy on the ISS is the 28th of July, at 4.21am GMT. I'd rather just catch up on Nasa videos, or take a look at their integrated Twitter stream, if I'm honest. Here's the full list of features:

- Thousands of images from NASA IOTD, APOD and NASAImages.org
- On demand NASA Videos from around the agency
- Current NASA Mission Information
- Launch Information & Countdown clocks
- Current Visible Passes for the International Space Station (ISS)
- ISS and Earth Orbiting Satellite Tracker
- NASA Twitter Feeds from around the agency
- News and Features from the NASA topic areas
- Facebook® Connect and Integrated Twitter™ client for easy sharing
- Live Streaming of NASA TV
- NASA TV and What's On Your TV schedules
- Map and links to all of the NASA centers
- Featured content section

Out now for iOS and now Android, it's a free download. [Android Market via The Telegraph]
