LaunchTime – Rocket Launch Schedule 0.8 is free for a limited time, and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the News category.
I downloaded this App and it gives a lot of information. It also allows a user to set “Dark Mode’ which I prefer to the screen shots shown above. While the announcement says it works on the iPad, I was unable to install it from the App Store there.
This isn’t an App I will use every day, but being able to look ahead at the various launches and get a link to a streaming video will be nice to have occasionally. It is also impressive to see the number and diversity of launches.
