Basic and a bit rubbish. There are better ones out there
Unable to find any images
Buggy app, slow to respond.
Great app. Needs more features five star
Half the images say "bakeout" & the coronagraphs show a future timestamp... makes me wonder if I can trust the two remaining photos.
Does what it says, nice app.
If the pictures are uninteresting then it's because the Sun is currently uninteresting!
Really bad... would be nice if it had more interesting pictures
A little buggy. Maybe paid app works better?
OK not too cool
