Spaced: Beautiful App With The Latest News From Space

NASA is holding a press conference tomorrow “to discuss an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life”, and what better way to check on the coverage of the conference than Spaced app for iPhone and iPad?

I found this app in the App Store this morning while I was looking for my daily software fix. I’ve always been interested in reading space-related material, but I’ve never really subscribed to a set of sources with my RSS reader or bought magazines for that matter. I just followed a bunch of people who regularly tweet that kind of news and I don’t mind giving Reddit’s space section a read every two days or so.

Spaced app simplifies my news-finding effort: it aggregates the latest news from NASA, European Space Agency, UK Space Agency and a variety of other sources. It comes with a video section, beautiful imagery and the possibility to check on “space weather” (pretty geek stuff) and the next launch.

The app could use an Archive section but I’m willing to wait for an update. It looks great, it’s easy to use, it’s available at $0.99 in the App Store.
