An infinite space museum in your pocket! Space Envi Deluxe turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a Web-based space museum, with exhibits and archives from around the universe. It gives you easy, full-screen access to an out-of-this-world set of space photographs, grouped into major collections.
From the Earth Observatory here at home, to the Space Shuttle and Space Station in low-earth orbit, to each planet and its moons, to distant galaxies photographed by the Hubble telescope, Space Envi Deluxe displays Web-based space images the way you would expect on the iPhone: full screen, with multi-touch controls, in automated slide shows.
Space Envi Deluxe is based on the acclaimed iEnvision Web-image browser, which organizes images from the Web into groups, with indexed lists in each group. With iEnvision not only can you view Web-based space photography, but also classic artwork, children's books, comics, manga, news, travel guides and more.
Space Envi Deluxe goes beyond our top-selling Space Envi application by including:
- The ability to save any image
- A complete archive of the Astronomy Picture of the Day (15 years worth)
- A similar period of Hubble photographs, organized by subject
- Stunning earth views from eight years of the Earth Observatory
- Shows from every Space Shuttle flight
- Access to the most recent images from missions to Mars, Saturn and beyond
- Each planet and its moons
- Year-by-year archives from the Kennedy Space Center since before Kennedy
- Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Skylab manned missions, plus dozens of unmanned ones
- A greatly sped-up display

Nice but . . .
I loved this app at first. I even loved it enough to pay extra for the additional upgrades. But I soon came to dread the phrase "No images can be displayed with this shows settings" as all of the Hubble images failed to load, and all of the Mars topo maps failed to load, and so on and so on. I still like the app, but I'm disappointed.
This app needs someone to give it some TLC. At least get rid of the stuff that doesn't work, even if you don't fix it. It's very annoying the way it keeps leading the user on and then dumping on them. But I guess the developers got their money and that's all they care about. So sad, too bad.
Waste of money unless they fix it
So many of the things you click on give you an error message that says it can't display because of your settings. I spent $8 on this app with the add ins but much of it doesn't work. If they fix the bugs I'll change my review but as for now I just wasted $ on pictures I can get on the Internet for free.
Don't waste your money on it. It says that it has a huge gallery, but it does very little to deliver what it promised off the bat. Better be glad you even get one star; I'd give this app -4 because I can't tell if it's broken on purpose, or by accident.
