[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - Discovery at your fingertips... While handheld and mobile devices have the power to put information at our fingertips, they can also transform how we learn and interact with knowledge. Cassini HD, the first iPad app from Thinx, harnesses that power to take audiences on a voyage of discovery to the ringed planet of Saturn. The app's intuitive design helps users to easily navigate a collection of more than 840 spectacular images returned to Earth by the Cassini orbiter while showcasing those images in a way that is both elegant and informative.

Browsing this collection takes you on a journey from Saturn itself, beyond its stunning rings, and past more than 20 of its moons. Additional information about each image can be revealed with just a tap. With multiple ways to navigate, Cassini HD becomes an immersive experience guided by your own curiosity: an alphabetical menu can take you to any point of interest, while a unique navigation map allows you to scroll easily through this vast collection.

Discoveries worth sharing... Cassini has treated the world to incredible views of Saturn since arriving there in 2004; many of those images have become among the most popular circulating the Internet on social sites like Reddit and Tumblr. We carefully selected from the thousands of photos available courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech only the most interesting and visually arresting images. Future updates will add to this collection the latest images from Cassini as more become available.

Integration with social media adds to the fun as you share your discoveries with family and friends. Cassini HD features sharing through Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as by email. Save your favorite images to your photo roll and use them as a wallpaper on your iPad.
