What's New in Version 2.1.0
- Retina Display Support
- Improved image gallery scrolling
- Bug fixes
Too few images, not retina ready
Nice idea, too bad it's not retina ready and there are way too few images. For example, there are 700+ "Universe" images on the web site but only 60 blurry ones in the app.
The app is ok, but I expected beautiful pictures of outer space and celestial bodies, and there are mostly scientific pictures.
