The National Science Foundation announced Thursday the launch of its new Science360 app for the iPad.
The app, which features NSF-funded institutions, the ability for users to share pictures and video on Facebook, Twitter or email and includes a science news feed, is now available in the App Store section on iTunes.
“iPads are becoming more prevalent, more reliable and more viable for locating information,” said Acting NSF Director of Public Affairs Dana Topousis. “This application will provide at your fingertips another avenue for sharing and accessing breaking science news.”
Content on this application is either produced by NSF or gathered from scientists, college and university press offices, popular and peer-reviewed journals, National Science Foundation science and engineering centers, and funding entities that include government agencies, not-for-profit organizations and private industry.
Science360 for iPad demonstrates the successful partnerships and platforms NSF has developed with NBC Learn and LiveScience.com as well as Science Nation, to communicate science and technology discoveries to a broader audience.
