What's New in Version 1.1.0
To decrease the size of the application, video assets are now streamed from NASA's servers.
The initial landing screen was changed from an image of the sun to a list of all available images.
Great app except for one thing
I have been using this app for few months on an iPhone 6 and I love it, as some of the images of the sun are high resolution. The only problem is that after a period of time a blank rectangle appears in the left top portion of the screen and the app crashes or stop working, so I have to delete it and re download it again. Then the apps works again but the same thing happens again after a while. For the rest, in my opinion, it is the best sun viewing app. I hope the developer can correct this problem.
The power and knowledge of science and NASA is at your fingertips. Real time images of the sun in multiple wavelengths courtesy of satellites orbiting our star are sensational and awe inspiring! I am constantly mouthing "WOW!" Truly a wonder brought to you by 21st century technology and science converging in an easy-to-use app ready at your fingertips for education and entertainment. This is a MUST HAVE app if you are curious about your environment and the universe. Excellent content. Well done.
May make you feel insignificant
This little app gives you some amazing views of one giant thing that we take for granted, but without which none of us would be alive. NASA shows us the Sun and all its aspects, letting us see and understand it in ways that our naked senses would never be capable of. Simply marvelous.
