A London-based software company has created a new application for the iPhone called the iAPODViewer. For a liitle over $2, star-gazers will receive images directly from NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day Web site, along with a professional astronomer's description of each picture.
"The iAPOD application allows people to get a unique glimpse of our fascinating universe directly on their mobile phone," said Michael Kaye, a lead iAPODViewer developer. He hopes the application will encourage a whole new generation of space enthusiasts.
iPhone users can also take advantage of a keyword search function to obtain every Picture of the Day ever published, as well as saving their favorite pictures. And whenever you shake the iPhone or iPod Touch, it will randomly generate a new image.
