It seems I’ve become rather fond of the educational apps lately :). And why not?! Who doesn’t want to learn an extra thing or two without having to worry about taking or failing an exam?!
So if you’re a science buff, geek or freak, or just a curious closet nerd like me that on occasion likes to learn new shit about our universe, the latest official NASA application (released Sept. 1) should feed your quest for knowledge. All you need is an iPad, an iPhone or an iPod Touch and this link to the iTunes App Store and you’ll be on your way to exploring the solar system and beyond…
Just think about all the awesome scientific facts and crap you’ll be able to regurgitate at your next luncheon, dinner date, social gathering…You’re guaranteed to impress!
And in case you’re wondering: Yes, it’s free!
If you’re still not interested (after those few compelling arguments I gave :D), and don’t give a rat’s ass about space and stuff, then stop reading here! But if you are, check out some of the features below and watch the 3 minute demo of the new NASA App HD from the NASA Ames Research Center.
