What's New in Version 3.1
- Compatibility fixes (no new features)
It would look nice on my TV... ;(
I understand the business decision to create and release a separate version of this app specific to the new Apple TV, but I don't have to like it. To be honest I have gotten little use out of the iPad version and if they had updated it to work with my new Apple TV then I would have been likely to give it a much higher rating as the content would have been simpler to share with others... After all, It is sort of inherently a TV app. But, I see absolutely no reason to spend more money on this app that I already own. It's just not worth it to me. They will likely claim a technical reason (developers oftentimes do) but I doubt that greatly... This is a quite simple app and I have already seen other much more complex apps that I own made fully universal. So I am off to give those developers rave reviews, and my thanks for doing what I feel is the right thing.
Cool app, bad description
I like the app but the description has a major inaccuracy. According to the app description it works perfectly on old devices and this would make be "a great use of your old ipad1 or 2". I would love to use this on my old iPad 1, unfortunately all iPad 1's are stuck on iOS 5.1.1 due to hardware limitations , and will probably never advance beyond that point. Unfortunately this app requires iOS 7.0 or above, so the original iPad owners are out of luck unless jetson creative lowers the requirement. I hope they do because this would be very nice on my dusty iPad 1.
Great pictures but boring
I downloaded this when I found out it was free. The pictures are beautiful and it's amazing to see our beautiful Earth. However, I was expecting that the pictures would be updated every so often. After a while it's boring to see the same stuff over and over again.
