ISSLive!: ISS Mission Control in Your Pocket
International Space Station Live! or ISSLive! includes a website and mobile applications that tie ISS streaming systems data and operational timelines into one “Rich Internet Application (RIA)” experience. The application offers data on real time parameters such as station position, internal environment, altitude, payload rack science activities and other interesting data and crew activities. ISSLive! ties this data into an interactive application which includes the latest social media feeds.
ISSLive! contains a scrollable timeline, with a ‘public-friendly’ view of crew and payload activities. It uses some of the latest interactive web content technologies, including 3D interactive virtual views of the MCC and ISS. ISSLive! is a “one-stop shop” for ISS data, letting users in on the fascinating activities that happen daily onboard the ISS.
Working with the NASA Education Office, ISSLive! content serves as the basis for development of interactive lessons in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. ISSLive! is also a resource for the space enthusiast, the educator, and the life-long learner to participate in the mission of the ISS.
ISSLive user reviews :
If you have a tablet – download this app!!! It looks absolutely beautiful on a 10″ tablet! I leave the “birds-eye view” of the ISS orbiting the earth on all the time! I love watching the the day/night transitions. Now, add a live audio feed to these images, and it would be the next best thing to being on-board! I wish NASA offered this as a live wallpaper! I’d pay a few bucks for that – hint-hint, $2.99 times a few million – might pay for a new ISS module. ;-)
Bizarre, Frustrating UI This is an amateur, beginner application. It’s claimed to be an Android application, but it has a bizarre user interface – apparently based on EMACS. What’s with landscape only? Why doesn’t the Back button work? Tap “X” on screen instead of Back? What’s with the different styles of on-screen menu but no menu button? What’s with the lengthy “loading” screen between each activity? I’m an Android application developer, and I actually gave up trying to get the license agreement screen to work. It’s only after I saw another comment here that I figured out it’s possible (you have to scroll to the bottom, tap on the tiny “x” and get it to change, then tap on the even smaller “Accept” button. Obvious).
Nice effort Interesting app although the UI in some parts is unconventional (took me about a minute to work out how to accept the license agreement, moving around the MCC goes in the opposite direction than I expect). You get to see the various control centre screens although I would love to see all of them. There is also a rendered view of the ISS in orbit which would be nice as a live wallpaper.
