Ratings and Reviews
I got to say… fascinating images!!
Thank you for all of the hard work and effort you bout in the app! These images are awesome. I love you you can see other peoples reviews on the images too! What’s even better is that the images are from NASA. I am obsessed with astronomy and I love this app! One little thing you should fix is the bug where is says “no results”. But hey, this is an amazing app!
No images available.
This was a good app, but it seems to be broken, no images available anymore.
Flawed implementation sullies viewing the great images. All "Latest Images" should download automatically in the background at launch. Instead, one must wait for each to download individually as one clicks through the list.
Similarly, upon installing, each category should download in the background upon first invocation. Could at least download enough to fill a buffer, to kill the long waits.
The pictures are exciting, but the app is no fun to use. I deleted it.
