Can't get enough of your favorite iPhone apps, like Flight Tracker, Photogene and TweetDeck? Well, NASA is hoping to add one more to your list of favorite iPhone applications.

The space agency has released NASA App 1.1 for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch products.

The updated application is designed to help users spot near-Earth orbiters, see NASA videos, stay up to date with NASA launch information and countdown clocks and get easy access to NASA's Twitter feeds.

NASA App 1.1 adds several new features, like new content about space missions, and visible sighting opportunities for orbiters from the user's home location or through searched locations.

NASA said there are no plans at this point to extend the offering to other mobile platforms like Google Android, BlackBerry or Microsoft's Windows Mobile.

The application is available for free from Apple's App Store.
