Layout on windows phone is awesome but the layout on surface is too much side-scroll not working for me. Don't remember it being a paid app when I downloaded on phone.

It would be great if there were a 4x4 Live Tile that shows the full APOD, instead of the current 4x2 (max) zoomed fragment reduced to ~4x2.5 due to the name placement.

This is the second time that this App has gone from the best to broken. No more pictures of the day of any updates for that matter. I also have this App on my windows phone and it is junk now too. Please fix soon!!!

Highly recommend this app. Beautiful pix, great info/write-ups; vast wealth of information on subject matter. Only one request: allow ability to zoom-in on pictures, that would be epic and make this app a six star app :)
