What's new in this version (0.6.5):

v0.6.5 [2012-01-01]
Fix NASA parsing, again.
Fix Spaceflight Now parsing of dates containing "NET".
Remove touchscreen requirement. (Google TV compatibility)
Update AdMob and AdWhirl SDKs. (Was using very old versions due to a significant visual bug with house ads in newer versions of AdWhirl including this version, decided the potential benefit of new features outweighs the bug)

Description

L-Clock fetches data from NASA.gov and SpaceflightNow.com and creates a formatted list of upcoming rocket launches.

Spaceflight Now contains one of the most comprehensive schedules for worldwide launches, while NASA is more up-to-date for their launches.

Touch an item in the list to display the detected launch date/time and the launch clock.

Alerts are created according to preferences for all launches that have a schedule accuracy to the minute or better. Press the menu button to access preferences. Volume buttons control notification volume while the app is visible.

L-Clock is currently in beta. There are a few important features missing and some issues that will be resolved by v1.0.0, but the basic concept is functional.

An inspiration for L-Clock is the MissionClock app for iOS.

Permissions:
Internet - Needed to download launch data and provide ads.
View network state - Needed to check connectivity before attempting to download data or fetch ads.
Vibrate - Used for alerts (optional).

Problems? Please email me or submit it to the issue tracker at http://tracker.pilot51.com (can also be used for suggestions).
