Carrying the great Universe in our hands is now possible. This sounds little weird but a tiny mobile app can help you to carry the entire cosmos with you. If you have got Windows Phone 7 device, then download and install APOD Viewer app from Windows Phone 7 Marketplace to get some exciting pictures associated with stars, planets and sun. At one time, it was not feasible to get right details about Universe but slowly NASA started posting several pictures on a website. In this way, people can see the hidden elements related to cosmic world. For better understanding, descriptive information is also provided along with the pictures. In case you frequently use your smartphone to surf the web, then you can easily see the same pictures with APOD Viewer.
Once the app is installed, it will request for Internet connection so that it can automatically connect to http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html to display the pictures on your device. However, APOD directly loads the pictures on a mobile screen but you can also access the original website. In addition to this, you can personalize the app settings to automatically save the pictures in the background. You can use the downloaded pictures either as wallpaper for your device or else transfer them to an image hub.
There are few more features associated with APOD which are given below.
• The moment an image is posted on the Internet, the app can update you with a notification. In fact, you can configure the app to show alerts on specific images.
• Images can be shared with other people by sending a link through a SMS or an e-mail.
• All the images can be organized in a proper manner. For easy access, you can place them in such a way that all the saved images are visible on a single screen.
So, if you want to share the images of our solar system with other people then try out this amazing app on your Windows Phone 7 device. Before installing this app, make sure that your device is fully compatible with the current release.
