Informative and Fun for All Ages
Great app for Mars fans. Geared towards young people but I like it too at age 48. Worthwhile.More
Needs an update
After using this app for over a year, I've gotten fed up with it. It won't let you go directly to the next image when viewing the raw images instead of having to go back to the thumbnail page and having to select each image, which is a double pain because it always goes back to the beginning. If there's a lot of images, you have to scroll back to where you were. It enlarges wide images, which introduces jpeg artifacts which lowers the image quality, and forces you to scroll the image to see the rest of it. And they NEVER write back to you if you ask questions or make suggestions. Since this app has been this way since the beginning, it looks like they have no interest in ever updating it. BTW, one of the screenshots shows the app having the Opportunity rover raw images too. It doesn't.More

Not a live tile?
This is a perfect Win8 app to be a live tile, which unfortunately it is not.More
App is fun and pictures are neat.More
Is a nice app, but it can do a little more.
Live tiles can be an important role in this app which is not implemented. I would like to see pictures of mars, titles of interesting articles, updates, etc.More
Great info and fun... needs easier scrolling
Nice app, but needs easy way to browse updates to missions without needing to press the back button each time, clicking mission updates, then next update. Bit tedious.More
