Very nice interface--especially glad to see a developer use larger font sizes, larger tap buttons, etc. In short, good to see an app for the iPhone designed with touch in mind. There's even an option to change font size.
As you can tell from other reviews and the app's blurb, there's much offered here.
So, why my lower rating?
1. Ads!! They clutter up the bottom of the screen and there was no mention of them in the app blurb--and no way offered of getting rid of them!!
2. The podcast of the day feature was one I really was looking forward to, but, alas, every single entry was "Null.". Yes, that's literally what was listed--for day after day!! And, that's been true each day I've tried it!!
So, lose the ads and provide some podcasts (there are many-- Astronomy Cast comes to mind), and I'll raise the rating to 5 stars!
Oh, and one other thing--why does it keep showing/flashing "updating"? Is the app phoning home and sending ad-related info? Or, doing data mining on my phone? Needs explaining!
Yet, one other thing--lose the spinning Earth. It's a distraction (it also moves much too fast!).
I absolutely love this app, beautiful pictures and explanations!
Don't get it. It has no use it has a lot of bugs and it crashes too much.
