4.0 out of 5 stars NASA Now app works well on Kindle Fire HD January 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
The NASA Now app works well on a Kindle Fire HD. It has been very stable for me, with no crashes or performance issues. There are LOTS of words, lots of details and links to lots of images. The screen shots on the product page give the false impression that the app shows plenty of photos/images all the time. The "Image of the Day" link leads to a _description_ of the image, which requires an extra click/tap to display; and there is no archive of previous IOTDs. Most of the information is updated several times a week (sometimes not for a day or two, then sometimes multiple times in a day). You could probably find all of this information on various NASA web sites, but this app brings it all in to one convenient place. Not bad for 99˘.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in the app December 22, 2012
By Dave C
Verified Purchase
Read the description and thought it would be an awesome application. Downloaded and installed and opened for the first time. Was extremely disappointed in the "Missions Section" not being an option. The rest of the app is short headline type data that if you want to read more you have to go to the NASA.GOV site anyway. Save your $0.99, either go to the NASA site directly or if you like the headline type info stick with the free app.

This is slightly faster and easier to load on your Kindle Fire than NASA's website. If you are looking for live NASA video while you are on the road then you need this app.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip off December 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
I don't know what's up with all the 5 star reviews. I take it NASA employees and their family members are rating it. The MISSIONS button does not work and i bought the pay version. Missions are the most important aspect of NASA and its disabled in this app, even though it shows up in larger letters than the rest of the options. So you cannot see or read anything about Mars rover Curiosity or anything else they have going on. All you can do with this app is read old news and see some old pictures. I'm very disappointed with this. I see no reason for it whatsoever. Luckily, i had free amazon coins so nothing came out of my pocket. I would give this 0 stars if that was a option. Shame on you, NASA. This is unacceptable. Do not waste your coins or money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tried and deleted it. January 2, 2013

Dry, governmental and academic. I'm a big fan of everything NASA and would pay a special tax to pay for a trip to Mars, but this failed to stir my interest.

I don't use this much but when I do there is some interesting things you can find out about. If I could have, I would have worked for NASA when I was young.

As good as NASA gets. Current, up to date and a thirty day recent history of stories available is great. Plus great links to all other aspects of NASA and related companies.

Great app that gives you up to date information on latest news. Gave it four stars because even though it is a good app the way it categorizes news needs a little work. Read more
