Plz read: great game but......

This was a great app when I first got it, and I am a NASA nerd. Everything about it was truly amazing and the visuals and facts were stunning. I only had it for a week, and then it all went downhill. Every time I opened the app, it either closed and said I needed a certain update or sent me to settings. When it sent me to settings, it said the app had an update available. I clicked on the update and it brought me to the apple store looking at the app, where I am right now writing this review. It doesn’t give me an update to click on and is very frustrating. Since the app is free, I suggest you get the app and if it works than great. If it doesn’t just delete the app. There is another really fascinating NASA literally called NASA. It is my favorite app and I totally recommend.

Nice content, but does it update?

Many apps like this have stories that periodically update or rotate in new stories or news.

The piece on Curiosity could link to something where we could see more info on the status of the rover, both pre- and post-landing.
