Spaceweather Releases Perseids 1.0

Posted August 4, 2009 at 6:31pm by iClarified
Spaceweather has released an innovative iPhone app to help sky watchers experience the annual Perseid meteor shower, which peaks this year on August 11th and 12th. The app counts down the days to the shower's peak, offers breaking news alerts, an easy-to-use sky map, and a live photo gallery populated with meteor photos from around the world. It's like having an entire meteor shower in your pocket!

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.
