What's New in Version 2.0.1
Fix bug while copying image to photo albums.
Amazing on retina display
It'd be even better if each picture has a small map showing at which part of sky it zooms in.
Aborts after second "save to photos"
The app would be great if it would not exit after a second download attempt. I download one photo into my my iPad photo storage, got confirmation it was stored, then I went to download a second photo and the app exits after hitting the store button. Basically you can only download one photo at a time. A real time burner. IOS 6.01 on iPad 3/3rd gen.
Ignore the 'who's top 100' because "obviously" that subjective. Do pay attention to the review that says crashes after 2nd image save...that it does like clockwork! Deleted & re-installed and no change.
