This application is a compilation of over 2000 images from NASA’s Digital Image Collection and the Hubble Space Telescope digital archives, grouped into categories roughly based on the subject matter of the image.

The majority of images relate to the International Space Station (IIS), the Soyuz space station, and the space shuttle program, although there may be a smattering of unrelated NASA images in there, too!

This app includes some basic information about the photo, like what the subject matter is, and some interesting facts about the subject matter (available for many, but not all, images).

You do not need an internet connection to use this app. All images and information are viewable offline.

This is an excellent pocket reference for those who wish to learn more about space exploration and astronomy. It’s a great way to stimulate interest in science for kids, and can be used by teachers as a learning springboard to advanced topics in space and physics.

A subset of the overall feature list for this application includes:

– Advanced search for all images. The top 150 images are returned by the search engine. If you need a more finely-tuned search, simply add more terms into the search field. Category-based search is available.

– Add/edit/remove images, and access images you added using My Images. If you find space data that needs revision, you can edit it using your on-screen keypad, or add your own interesting facts.

– You can rate images on a 5-star system. Once rated, the entry is much easier to access later since you can just tap on the “Top Rated” button in the “More” section at the bottom of the screen.

– Mark your favorite images, and view them in the Favorites area. This is similar to the “Top Rated” feature, but with more direct access since the button is always-visible at the bottom of the screen.

– E-mail any image to a friend, and CC or BCC it, too.

– Rename categories and add/remove categories. We’ve given you a starting point to help you categorize and organize your images, but you can always add more, or change the default categorization. Also, you can put any image in up to 2 categories, if desired. For example, an image of Earth might belong in “Earth” but also “Planets”.

– Shake your mobile device for a random image. This is just fun on every level. Your kids will like this one, too.

– “View All” images for access to every item in the database. This can take a few seconds to load since there are a LOT of photos in this app.

– Use a simple “finger swipe” gesture to move from one image to another, or use the previous/next buttons. Navigating the database has never been easier!

– Insert a textual comment about the image. Or, perhaps you would like to keep track of which observatory took which photo.

– The history feature keeps a log of what you’ve seen, so you can always go back to re-read about that interesting Hubble photo that you remembered from days ago.

– A Settings screen allows you to change the relative font sizes and the size of the history table.

This app requires at least OS version 3.0
