No longer works under iOS 12

APOD no longer works when I updated to iOS 12. This has been has been one of my all time favorite apps on the iPhone, I visited every day, put it in my notification window.

Like others here, I deleted the app and reloaded it, to no avail. There is something else in the App Store named APOD but it is awful, within a minute or so an obnoxious ad took over my screen for some game.

Doesn’t work with iOS 12

Just updated to iOS 12, and if I tap the app the screen flashes, the app launches but then disappears behind the home screen. If I swipe up on the screen I see the app open, but if I tap to expand it to full screen it just flashes and goes away again. It works fine if I open it from Safari.

I tried deleting and reinstalling, but no help.

Not nearly as good as my old APOD app

I got this app because a previous APOD app wasn’t updated and would not run with iOS 11. Sorry to say, it’s not half as good as the old app. It takes longer to load pictures, and more often than not, especially if the APOD is a video, it says it cannot load and gives a link to the official APOD website, which does not work. This app is hardly worth the trouble.
