Great app. The tile updates automatically (some say not – the glitch is with their network connection).

Been using this app for awhile now, but am getting tired of the tile not updating properly, otherwise, 5 stars. While other apps update their tiles each day, this one updates only after opening and closing 3 or 4 times, and then, MAYBE it'll update to the latest picture. Please fix! Thanks for listening! SER

This is a scam app... it offers no way to update the lockscreen, even after paying. Steer clear.

Wished it would let you go more than 1 week back. Should have the pics archived.

...but no captions or descriptions! You have to go to the web site to get any info on what you're looking at. Pass.

Great pictures but not able to use on daily lock screen as promised. Wrote to designer, no fix offered. Just apology.

This is one of my most favorite web sites, but in their attempt to extort money out of us, they have pretty much made the Windows 8.1 app non-functional. They seemed to have disabled most everything when they enabled the nag pop-up. Nothing seems to work right at all; and, it has become a disappointing mess. The "Save Image" feature no longer works, either. The new 2.0 version is a definite step-down, and certainly not an upgrade. It's no longer a free app by any sense of the term 'free'. Going to have to uninstall it and go to the website on the desktop instead.

I love APOD, not just for the pretty pictures but really to LEARN about the universe we live in. This means I enjoy reading what the professional has to say so I can have a better understanding of what I'm seeing. Please implement this feature of this app and I'll give it 5 stars.

This app has been great, except for the past couple days. It won't download new images. Hope everything is alright...
