I absolutely loved it until...

This app worked perfectly for roughly two days. The app froze up and when I restarted it I realized that the entire top half and the bottom right quarter of the screen was frozen and the bottom left quarter displayed part of the spinning solar system that was not connected to the other three quarters of the screen. To simplify that, the only part of the screen wsith a spinning solar system is the bottom left quarter of the screen. I have tried changing multiple settings, deleted and re-downloaded the app multiple times, and sent several emails to their app support email but have recieved no reply. I waited a full week for a reply but after silence from the app creators I decided to try this platform prior to giving up. If you contact me with a solution I will change my 1 star raiting back to a 5. If you continue to ignore me, the raitimng will remain at 1 star. Thank you.

A beautiful app! I had one question though, how do I turn off the sound for it?

This app worked for the first… 4 hours. Then freezes. Now all of my apps are running slow and raises my CPU tremendously. I have to restart my mac to quit app because it doesn’t show up on Task Manager. Complete waste.

Only shows in 1/4 of the desktop, the rest is a twitchy, static version of the app. This is completely broken, as is the support website. This should be removed from the app store immediately. PLEASE INSPECT/INVESTIGATE THIS APP!

Doesn’t work

3/4 of the screen is working correctly but, 1/4 (corner) is showing a smaller version of the larger display. It’s like a split screen but, there is no way to change that. I deleted it and will eat the $1.99 but thought I’d let you know it’s not all that great.

A nice app, but could use some improvement.

I like the app, but it freezes on occasion and I have to either log out and long in again, or restart to recover the app. Secondly, the orbits are all exatcly in the same plane—not realistic in that regard. The revolution rate of the moon (12 revolutions around the earth in one orbit of the sun,) I think is not accurate. Neither are the orbit rates of the inner planets. It seems to not remember some settings from the previous session. Otherwise, its a great screen saver and I enjoy watching it on my 21 inch monitor.

Very Cool

This is a very cool applications. Looks great as your background and it is a little customizable to add. If you are into space or astrology, you will like this app. It is educational also
