NASA offers more than three dozen apps on its missions, the solar system and the universe. This one, the NASA App, is a good starting point for anyone interested in following the U.S. space program. Created by NASA's Ames Research Center, it provides news, information and access to more than 150,000 images. The Earth-orbiting satellite trackers and launch countdown clocks are fun and educational. Available for Android, iPad and iPhone.

There are definitely some must-have apps in this listing. Every parent should have the FBI's Child ID app. And having lived through Hurricane Sandy this year, the FEMA app looks invaluable. The other one I think I will download onto my iPhone is the Red Cross's First Aid app, which could be a life saver.
