    "Need upgrade"

    June 17, 2010  |   By huskydusky

    Version: APOD 1.0

    Pros

    Well documented pictures of the universe and solar system.
    I don't care at staring at the same picture over and over.
    As an amateur astronomer, any piece of information adds to my knowledge.

    Keep it up.

    Cons

    Can't install it under win 7 64bits.
    Issues setup error message
    ***** Please upgrade the program *****

    Summary

    It does exactly what it is supposed to do. Show pictures and as added value the description.
    At lease one knows what one is looking at.

    "Should I look at a famous star's butt, or look at stars?"

    March 21, 2006  |   By thebman

    Version: APOD 1.0

    Pros

    I decided I would rather look at stars and the universe around me, than Lindsey Lohan's navel. This little gem reminds me each day how small I really am. What a trip to view the universe I live in. I highly recommend this app. to all that feel there is more out there than Linsey Lohans' butt on your desktop. There is a discription of the image on the screen and links to other web sites to learn more.

    Cons

    The app. tends to lock up on occassion and not update to the next day's picture. This is frustrating after seeing the same space shot for two days in a row and expecting differently. You get the option to open the description or not of the space shot. The description is thorough and offers links to other sites to learn more. Unfortunetly the color white for the main text can get obscured by the image all to often and is unreadable. Overall I have been pleased and would have given it 5 stars had these minor anoyances been fixed.

    "Like to look at the stars and planets?"

    February 26, 2006  |   By Smoaky

    Version: APOD 1.0

    Pros

    Pretty cool!!!! This FREE little program allows you to view different scenes from space using it as your desktop background.Different options include,tray icon,& it will give you an explanation of the picture you are viewing,if you want a different picture everyday or let the program run in auto. If you are bored of the same old desktop background all the time and you really like the stars,viewing planets and constellations, then this is for you. You will never see the same picture twice, and you will learn something new everyday about the planets and the galaxies.( these are REAL pictures taken from various telescopes from around the world and from the Hubble Telescope in space). Also includes fly-by pictures of asteriods,comets and moons,taken from satellites.
