"Space geeks take note -- NASA has just released several audio samples of famous moments in space history for use as ringtones on your smartphone."

Head on over to this site and see the list of all the ringtones available, including sounds from shuttle missions as well as Apollo and Mercury missions. Once you get the one you like, they also offer a handy walk through guide for putting them on your iPhone. If you have an Android, the best way to do it is to get the NASA Android app here.

Track the Final Shuttle Mission via This Free iOS App

"The final NASA space shuttle mission is STS-135. GoSoftWorks is providing a free app so space enthusiasts can view when the space shuttle Atlantis goes overhead in their local skies, and where it is located anytime in its orbit."

The free app is call GoAtlantis (they also have one called GoSatWatch [affiliate link] for $9.99 that allows you to track satellites in orbit), and you can use it to track the last shuttle mission, which is scheduled to begin on Friday, July 8th at 11:36 am EDT with the launch of the space shuttle Atlantis.

Control Your Own Lunar Rover With This App From NASA

"Ever dreamed of controlling your own Lunar rover? Keep dreaming, buddy; there's no way NASA is ever gonna let you do it (even if it sends a new rover to the moon in the near future, which it probably won't)."

Now you can pretend you did indeed get that MIT Engineering degree and control your own rover with this free app from NASA. It is a simple game but one that would fill some time if you were bored.

NASA App Updated to 1.1

"The first official NASA App invites you to discover a wealth of NASA information right on your iPhone or iPod touch. The NASA App collects, customizes, and delivers an extensive selection of dynamically updated information, images. and videos from various online NASA sources in a convenient mobile package."

This is version 1.1, and adds sighting opportunities for the space station and shuttles, based on home location. They have also updated the video and images options. I use this app whenever a shuttle mission is approaching and it does offer a wealth of information on those as well as other launches. Oh, and it is free.

NASA App for the iPhone/iPod Touch

"Although I don't really see this being a very useful app on my iPhone, and to most others, I am sure there are some out there who could get a lot of use out of NASA's new iPhone app. It was developed by the New Media Team at NASA Ames Research Center and is full of features."

I have this app and it is a nice interface for what is going on at NASA. It covers all the current missions from Shuttle to the new Aries I-X Next Generation Rocket. They also include updates from Twitter. Some similar apps that just do the twitter feeds are available also, but they don't include the extras and this one is free. The only thing I wished it had was a calendar or section for future launches. I'll have to suggest that to them.
