Because of the live gallery, you can use the app to watch the shower even if you personally are clouded out. A global network of Spaceweather photographers will send their images directly to the iPhone gallery while the shower is underway.
Perseids 1.0 is a collaborative effort of Spaceweather and LizzardWerks, an independent iPhone developer based in San Francisco, Calif. The Perseids represents the firm's first foray into the iPhone market. Early, glowing reviews of Spaceweather's unique Perseid Meteor Shower app suggest that the firm's success on the web will soon be duplicated in mobile devices.
Pricing and Availability:
Perseids 1.0 for the iPhone is only $0.99 (USD) and available exclusively through Apple's App Store. Members of the media can request a free review copy by emailing the developer.
