You can now connect to real-time space weather applications in the field with either a Wi-Fi or cell phone signal.
This App can be useful for applications in HF Radio communications, GPS accuracy, Power grids, and Aviation to determine the how their systems are affected by space weather disturbances.
You can download the "Space Wx" App from the Apple (iTunes) store: Just search for the keywords "Weather" or "Space Wx", or vist this Apple App Store Space WX link to locate the image in iTunes. The purchase price is only $1.99 USD.

In addition, by using its web browser ability, it can be used to access our CAPS, GAPS, and many other SET and Space Weather Center products already designed for the iPhone/PDA screen size.

Typically data accesss issues are resolved within 24-48 hours.
