L-Clock (beta)

L-Clock (beta)


L-Clock parses data from NASA.gov and SpaceflightNow.com and creates a formatted list of upcoming rocket launches.

Spaceflight Now contains perhaps the most comprehensive schedule for worldwide launches, while NASA is more up-to-date for their launches.

Touch an item in the list to display the detected launch date/time and the launch clock. The launch clock shows green and red text to indicate accuracy. For example, if it is green from the days to the minutes and red for the seconds, the parsed launch time didn't include seconds and 0 is used.

Alerts are created according to preferences for all launches that have a schedule accuracy to the minute or better. Press the menu button to access preferences. Volume buttons control notification volume while the app is visible.

L-Clock is currently in beta. There are a few important features missing and some issues that will be resolved by v1.0.0, but the basic concept is functional.

As of 2013-01-12, L-Clock is open source under the Apache License, Version 2.0!
