Customer Reviews

NASA promptly fixed the updating issues. Thank you!

UPDATE: NASA promptly read the problems users had with not being able to update this app. They fixed the compatibility issue, and the app now updates as expected in iOS10. Thank you!

Will not update if iOS10 is installed. When trying to apply latest update, app says it's not compatible. A shame and very sad. Won't recommend app, and will be uninstalling it.

Updates Are Coming!

I read that the editorial staff has changed, but that new content is being released. I thoroughly enjoy the breadth of topics this app provides and the visual content presented. I highly recommend sharing this with children, too.

No New Stories Since Oct. 13, 2016 w iOS 10.2

Since the mid-Dec. 2016 update of NASA VIZ app I have not received any new stories in my VIZ app (that already appear in the NASA SVS gallery thru 2017).
I have re-installed the latest NASA VIZ app but still no success. It appears there is a compatibility issue w iOS 10.2 on an iPad Pro in receiving new VIZ stories.
