Mars image browsing app for iOS to view the latest from NASA's robotic surface missions to the red planet.

Getting Started

The app is provided as an XCode 5 project for iOS 6 or greater. If you are developing on Mac with XCode 5 installed, you should have everything you need. Just open the Mars-Images.xcworkspace in XCode and run it in the iOS simulator. (The project uses CocoaPods to manage third-party libraries, so it is necessary to use the workspace in XCode and not the project.)
