Appears to have been abandoned

The Curiosity rover section doesn't load at all now. Given the fact that the previous problem with it was never fixed, and the complete lack of response from the developers, makes me think this app has been abandoned. However, the other parts still work, so it's still a three star app.

Crashes when trying to listen to podcast.

I tried two different podcasts and they both crashed. One locked up the machine and I had to do a hard reboot. I like the concept but not the execution. When looking at the curiosity photos the screen began scrolling to the bottom and I could not stop it. Keep trying but its not ready.

Fantastic app. Brilliant pictures, fantastic articles, and a great live tile. Wish it had the option to use the picture in the article of the day as a lock screen background.

Windows 10 is fully functional! Only complaint is that the image name is too small and cut off on lock screen. I really liked it being visible on 8.1

After the lastest update, the app won't run. It crashes after starting up and reports an error about being unable to enable live tiles. Lumia 532, Windows Phone 8.1 Denim. Update: After posting my above review, I was contacted by the developer. They are working on a fix for said problem. This attitude deserves all the praise, I wish all app developers were like this. The app is beautiful, useful and informative and the developers actually give a ****. This is why this gets a 5-star rating from me. Keep it up!
