What is it?
► This app displays time lapse video from photos taken inside the Cupola of International Space Station.

► High resolution time lapse photos which you can save it on your camera roll
► Able to display time, date and weather

► No alarm clock function which limits this use as a nightstand

★ Chosen by Apple as New & Noteworthy and What’s Hot ★

The app comes complete with 8 relaxing ambient space soundtracks, a clock, and worldwide weather from Weather Underground. It is not only amazing to explore, it is useful on your desk and nightstand. Works perfectly on older devices – a great use of your old iPad 1 or iPad 2!

Support for AirPlay on the new iPad, iPhone 5, and iPhone 4S. See display options in app for instructions on how to enable. AirPlay is not supported on the iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, or 2.
