Great app with a few problems.

This is a great app with a few problems. It provides awesome satellite imagery but it is slow loading and it needs a way to create a gif animation because currently you can only create a still screen shot image. In the past I’ve had the app crash while the animation is loading but recently it hasn’t been crashing and it seems to only occasionally crash. When these problems are fixed I will give this app 5 stars. I would also really like to know if the app is still being maintained.

Really great, but NEEDS performance improvements!

I love the functionality, but I can’t fathom the reason for the absurdly long loading times for animations. The College of duPage web app viewer, while not mobile-friendly, loads nearly instantly even on my phone. This app routinely takes over 30 seconds to load an imagery loop, so I find I rarely use it.

Slow loading but good app

Really need to speed up load times. If it was faster it would be an amazing app.
