Over the last few years, the RunSocial mobile app has been under development featuring SmartFoxServer 2X and other innovative technologies. Recently, the app was approved by the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA) for use on the International Space Station (ISS).
