Checked Out the New GLOBE Observer App Enhancements Yet?
The GLOBE Observer app is now enhanced with a number of new features and fixes. A recent update fixed several bugs, and reduced the download size of the app by approximately 50 percent. Additions included an "Opt-in" feature, new information links, an instruction graphic, and links that take users directly to the GLOBE Observer website and social media accounts.
The new "Opt in" feature allows users to receive personalized emails from NASA regarding their cloud observations. These NASA emails will contain the cloud observation matched to satellite data. Users can also now opt-in to receive news and requests from scientists for additional information regarding their observations. (Of course, users are welcome to opt-out of receiving these emails as well.)
In order to update your app, simply go to the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. (Select "Update" by the app's listing.) It is best to do this when you have a strong internet connection – and before you go out in the field to take data using the app.
