NASA App HD – the excellent, and free NASA app for the iPad – has been updated again this week, to Version 1.22. NASA produce great iOS apps and this one is no exception – it’s been a choice here for Best Free iPad App of the Week and one of our selections in our Best iPad Apps of 2011 list.
Here’s the change list for this new version:
- Added News and Features to Mission Detail View
- Added Third Rock Radio player
- Added rudimentary "parental control" password-protected feature to restrict access to external links (must be set in the Settings popover)
- Fixed issue with selecting mission in solar system description
- Added Launch Services Program Updates
The rudimentary parental control is a useful addition, though older kids will get past it easily.
I really like the Third Rock Radio Player. It’s a cool name for starters, and the actual station, focused on new rock music and information about NASA, is quite good.
