"NASA Spinoff" App for Android

The "NASA Spinoff" application NASA's first Android app. It highlights the positive impacts NASA innovations have made on the everyday lives of citizens. Commercialization of NASA technology has contributed to products and services in the fields of health and medicine, transportation, public safety, consumer goods, environmental resources and computer technology.

I developed this app based on the layout and color scheme of our graphic designer. Knowing what I know now, I would've pushed harder for a different color scheme.
