While not an entirely new concept, we here at the OWC Blog thought it would be both informative and entertaining to do a group review of an App Store app each week. Our reasoning sits somewhere in between, “Hey, the iPhone is insanely popular, so people may be interested” and “Oooh. We get to play games at work!”
Whatever our reasoning, we all agreed it was a great idea to do a “Yea or Nay” theme on these each week. As all of us at least own an iPod Touch, we have narrowed the options down to two main requirements:
- The application being reviewed must function as easily and as well with a first generation iPod Touch as it would with an iPhone 3GS.
- The apps reviewed must be free…that way everyone can try it and benefit from it.
With that in mind, we chose our first app to review: The NASA Lunar Electric Rover Simulator.
Welcome to the NASA Lunar Electric Rover (LER) Simulator. You don’t need a driver’s license, but you still need to buckle up as the LER Simulator gives you a glimpse of what it might be like to support the activities of a functioning Lunar Outpost. Get busy. You never know if your skills here will become a major part of the NASA Astronaut application process in the future.
