Perfection I absolutely love this, and can't recommend it highly enough. Every day I have a new background on my phone, and coming from the APOD site, they are beautiful and unique and often something to discuss, every single day. I'm not sure about what people say is wrong with settings and so forth in other reviews, for me the settings work exactly right and the app doesn't run down my battery or anything. If it ever did that, those bugs must all be fixed now. Get this, you won't regret it.
Just beautiful I love seeing the new images every day. The app makes it really easy to view all the images and their explanations. For those struggling to get their background to change every day, ensure you haven't closed the app. I find that so long as it's on the list of recent apps it works. If I swipe it off the list it then fails to update until I next open the app.
No longer updates There was an update involving APOD's website data transfer protocol, but in turn no update was made for the app. As of now, the daily pictures no longer update and haven't since mid December. Apparently the developer hasn't been responding, leaving me no other recourse but to uninstall. This saddens me greatly, as I've had this app for years and love it. I'll keep checking back to see if anything changes.
Love the app BUT... The settings always self destruct. I set the program to automatically download a new pic and set it as wall paper at 2AM every day. I'm lucky if it works 2 days in a row. I'm not enjoying the app like I should and this issue has been going on for over a year now. Please fix. 5 star app 2 star application of the app.
Good on some devices as it saved pages & pics for offline viewing & saved in a user accessable folder but on some devices it is hidden so you can't backup off the device or transfer to PC ,, BE better if had option to automatically download & save pages & pics automatically to internal/external SD Card to backup to PC etc I.E..button to automatically apdate Apps APOD database to syncronise with NASAs without having to go to each page to load pages. Also needs a button to go to last viewed page after viewing latest pages so you don't need to search to oldest viewed page (also a marker to say you've viewed those pages)
Started crashing The app worked brilliantly on my last phone. Now it just crashes n restarts everytime i go back from viewing the description of an apod. Already posted th problem to the forum. Hope itz fixd
