Why does the NASA App say 'Network Error - No/Slow Internet Connection.' after launching or when using the app?
Will you be making a version for (or will it run on) my mobile device (Blackberry, WebOS, Windows Phone 7…) or computer (Windows, Mac OS, Linux...)?
The NASA App requires either a good Wi-Fi or 3G network connection at all times. Once you have checked and/or connected your device to WiFi or 3G network, you can then return to using the app.
How do I bring up the satellite tracking function?
We are tracking a wealth of public commentary, suggestions, and requests for enhancements, new features, additional platforms and desktop versions. These will be integrated into our debrief and recommendations to NASA management regarding future efforts.
So, while we don’t have any news on future mobile platform development at this time, we are happy to report that NASA is strongly committed to expanding public awareness of the Agency’s knowledge, activities and results.
In the meantime, you can find NASA content formatted for most mobile platforms by visiting NASA’s Mobile website: http://mobile.nasa.gov
