The ipad equivalent of a big glossy coffee-table book- plus it's free, and you can use the images yourself. What's more, it even updates- had this app for over a year, and was amazed to find on browsing through it (yet) again that it now contains images from 2014- after I had downloaded the app! Cannot recommend too highly.



This app. is what helps to give the iPad (and other mobile) devices such a a good name! The images (and there are lots of them) are just amazingly beautiful. And as if this was not enough, the slide show with background music, makes this app. even more precious. And can you believe, it is all for FREE. So many thanks to the developers for such a wonderful app.

Staggering sublime.


In those in between moments we all have occasionally, you won't find me playing candy crush(why do people spend so much valuable concentration time on something so vacuous?) No I'll be marvelling at the mysterious magnificence of Messier objects.
