Hubble Space Telescope is this week's myAppFree deal

Curious about space exploration and the Final Frontier? If so, this week's Windows Phone myAppFree deal might be right up your alley. The Hubble Space Telescope is a Windows Phone app that delivers information on the space telescope, as well as a boat load of images the telescope has captured.

Normally the Windows Phone app runs $.99 but for the next twenty-four hours you can pick the Hubble Space Telescope app up for free through the myAppFree deal.

Growing up about an hour's drive from the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, it was easy to develop a fascination with space exploration. In 1990 the Hubble Space Telescope was placed in low Earth orbit to explore the depths of space and offer a better picture of what all is out there to explore.

The Hubble Space Telescope Windows Phone app offers background information on the telescope and a large collection of images captured by the Hubble Telescope.

Hubble Space Telescope

The Hubble Space Telescope app has main pages detailing the telescope's information, a mosaic of the images captured over the years and several pages of individual images that detailing the who, what and where of the photo. If you tap/hold on a thumbnail (and it is a long press) image, a pop-up menu will appear with the option to view more information on the photo from spacetelescope.org.

The only downside that I can see with the Hubble Space Telescope app is that you cannot save the images locally for use as wallpapers (some images are rather stunning).

Nonetheless, if space images are your cup of tea now is the time to save a little and install an image riddled app on your Windows Phone. The Hubble Space Telescope app normally runs $.99 and with the myAppFree Deal, you can pick it up free over the next twenty-four hours.

The app is pushing almost 1,500 reviews and a 4.5 Star rating in the Windows Phone Store. If you give the app a try, remember to rate Hubble Space Telescope in the Store. It is the easiest way to give feedback to the developers.

Please Note: Hubble Space Telescope is currently listed as Free in the Windows Phone Store but it may take a short while before it is reflected in the myAppFree app. myAppFree's developer is also reporting that he is encountering some problems from India,Turkey and Vietnam markets. Users from those countries may not see the app listed as free for several hours after the pricing change hits other markets.

If you are experiencing these issues, simply try back in few hours and the app should be listed as free. The myAppFree team is constantly working to resolve and avoid such problems but in dealing with global time zones, it can be challenging.
