  1. Jeffin Joe-avatar

    I really enjoyed everything in this app. It would've been amazing if the podcast has time slider, if I had to stop in the middle of it I had to hear it from the beginning. Please add a time slider in the next update to the podcast. Thanks very much

  2. Evan Pompa-avatar

    news I love the content, however scrolling through the articles can be awkward since the image is in a fixed position. This means no matter how much you scroll the image will always be present which leaves little room to read the text. I reccomend not making the image in a fixed position so we can scroll back up to see it if we want too. Other than that, I love everything else.

    asteroid Phenomenal app, highly educational, runs smoothly, really cool settings fine tweaking available, including being able to pull NASA picture of the day to your wallpaper automatically!

  4. Richard Voytko-avatar

    hoodie I'm tired of the "error retrieving content when I try to see where the visible passes will be of the ISS and when they will be. This is going on for several weeks now of not being able to locate the ISS in the sky thanks to the app being hours behind or hours ahead and not being accurate. The whole purpose of me having the NASA app was first, to track and be able to have a visible pass of my tax dollars at work. 2; being able to enjoy the photos and other information provided in the.

  5. Apollo 1386-avatar

    I downloaded app for its wallpaper feature, but it's missing the option to choose which wallpaper to chage( ( lock screen or home screen). Other then that, works fine so far.

  16. R.k Rokon-avatar

    This app is quite good. Even though I did not find a lot of feature over here. There was no search option to make search . But it is a good app for learning about space.

    It is nice app and increases my limit of learning but it had less current affairs and upcoming content than nasa's you tube channel. Please work on it to improve it just like your youtube channel

  31. shiv gautam-avatar

    Fantastic app and really a best app for exploring

  32. N. W. Dood-avatar

    NASA is a huge deception. The "space" they show is CGI and a violation of the 2nd law of thermodynamics. You cannot have a vacuum next to atmosphere without a barrier. Rockets have no way to work in the vacuum of space. When they launch a rocket it simply goes in an arc in the air dropping back down to the ground. Watch the moonwalks, you will see bubbles and other oddities. They take place in a pool. In the ISS, watch the weird things happening inside there.

  33. Firdaus Shaikh-avatar

    It is too much knowledgeable app and.. i love it

    Pavel Groznodumov


    Seriously? No remote in the podcasts? And even no pause? Guys you need to do something with it, or remove podcasts page , because it useless. Unfortunately google play does not allow to give a half star, so I gave solid 4 as advance.

  40. Mia_-avatar

    I really like this app. There is this new feature that i like, if you go under the images section. An click on one of the images, there's a little heart button to save that image. So if you back out of that image, the heart button is in the same area. An when you click it, it takes you to all the images you saved. When i try to go back to the images i saved, it takes me to a blank screen. Which sucks because i lost a lot of pictures that i liked, an now their hard to find. Please fix this.

  41. Steve Rabson-avatar

    An OK App which works. However, content is often out of date for ages. It doesn't contain up to date information. For example, launches that have already taken place are often not even reported for days and days. Instead, it will just carry on with articles on launch preparations for ages before someone in the NASA Press office gives it a Spring clean once in a while. The information is available on the Website so why not treat those using the Mobile App the same instead of boring us silly?

  42. RAVI KISHORE-avatar

    Global experience with this app. Enlightened with the news and images.

  43. Kenton Compton-avatar

    really love the app and all of its features. Especially the automatic cycling of images as wallpaper. But something happened and now no images cycle automatically. I am not sure what exactly is wrong with it but I suspect it to be my device (Galaxy S9). This was my favorite feature in the app and I definitely want to keep it that way.

  44. Thomas Poeck-avatar

    I absolutely love this app, I've always been deeply interested in astronomy & the history of space exploration and this app is a God send. The photos, live feeds & launch coverage are magnificent, I spend more time on this app than most of the others I have combined, plus it's just a great place to go to to get away from everything going on down here for a while!

  45. John Tate-avatar

    It doesn't know the date & fails to notify of upcoming sighting. It actually lists same dates multiple times and each of them has different information. NASA app has beautiful pictures but the ISS feature is worthless. Terrible. Broken. A waste of time.

  46. Silby Davis-avatar

    Outstanding app. Very informative and has lit of contents.

  47. Miguel Lago-avatar

    This application is useful and can show you plenty of content. The organization of content is confusing and boring. The whole thing is rather a badly realized directory structure. The information about images is grossly defective. The presentation is dazzling, hurting usability. The app lacks interactivity and control options. It lacks offline capabilities. It consumes Internet data like crazy, just for nothing. This application should be good, but it is really, really flawed.

  48. Ahsan Jawad-avatar

    It is a really good app and one of the reasons for it to be so good and successful is that it is based on facts and secondly,I love astronomy but there are not a lot of facilities provided here in Pakistan to be an astronomer or to be in NASA.SO I really liked it. Thank you for coming up with such a good app!

  49. A Google user-avatar

    Having used this on previous devices it's good just for the changing wallpaper, or was. Now ,not so much, Wallpaper doesn't load on to the desktop. Even if you go to the image and untick the tick the option box, it loads the image ,but within a few minutes it has gone ,replaced by the devices default wallpaper. Xperia xz3 Installed the update , rebooted. That seems to have done the trick . Thank You

  50. A Google user-avatar

    It seems fairly disorganized and I don't really fully know what the app had to offer. I belive thse photos are pictures and videos taken by NASA of different places, but I am unsure of what specifically, but I haven't found any issues on it and since I don't fully understand the purpose of the app, I don't see anything wrong with it.

  51. Joshua Richardson-avatar

    Joshua Richardson


    I really like this app because it shows us how much effort you put into your time and work for knowledge of space itself. t also let's us see all your achievements you've done in the past and it shows us what your planning. I really like that we may contact you for answers. I look forward into seeing NASA's achievements in this near future.

    This app is just a mobile version of nasas website....which is absolutely amazing

  53. wesley rodgers-avatar

    Excellent app. Thankyou.

  54. Klaatu58-avatar

    Provides features like ISS tracking free that other apps either charge for and/or make you watch ads for. Because it offers so much though, it's a master of nothing so is best for casual/amateur star gazers only. Updated only occasionally. No complaints.

  55. Saadal Khan-avatar

    Brilliant and superb work. With the use of this app I watched the ISS on the sky 5 times with my own nacked eye. Two request is to the team please kindly add the NASA shows section in the app, and make the browsing and watching the TV and videos smoother in the App.

  56. m0771gan-avatar

    Would love to love this app, but to many bugs. Won't cast from app to wireless or Bluetooth speakers even though it says its connected. all other casting compatible apps on my phone have no problem with casting. Worst bug is that the app will not close down properly without a force stop.

  57. hard times-avatar

    won't update till you assure us improvements don't include ruinous changes to movability to sd card etc of ap like 'musically' recently suffered! please confirm 12/26 will move to sd as prior versions have so I can enjoy it; a quite infrequent appropriately for mature apps milestone this however ballyhooed or not new version please!

  58. A Google user-avatar

    Amazing app duude. These guys also make one of the best 360 videos . im fully into space science and stuff. But the only thing which disappointed me is that they didnt answered my questions even though they had a feature of asking questions to nasa.

  61. A Google user-avatar

    im not sure what the problem is but this app isnt working at all right now, nothing will open up and show me anything. very disappointed because it has worked fine in the past few years.

  62. Jon Simmons-avatar

    Before I downloaded this app I read the reviews and saw mostly one star badd reviews. Ignore the mall this is a great app and I have been learning a lot about our Solar System. Love the Solar System model which gives detail descriptions of the asteroids in comments that pass round Earth.




    Very knowledgeable application I can read very important articles which are very interesting and increase my knowledge in science. I want to become a scientist so for me it is very important application.

  64. Rhonda Seymour-avatar

    NASA app and people are the best This is the best app in the world. It's highly educational, extremely informative for everyone fascinated by astronomical science. There's so much to learn. The photos are beautiful, colorful, and the resolution is great. Everyone I've known who works or who has worked for NASA, are great people, and some of the nicest people I will have ever known.

  65. Julia Naylor-avatar

    Used until I found your You Tube channel, good.

  66. Murphyz Law-avatar

    I like this app. Very interesting information and you gotta love the dumbass comments from all the flat earthers...BWAAAAAHAHA!!! Anyways, yeah, it's a hella cool app, unless you don't believe ISS even exist and SpaceX is just launching bottle rockets.

  67. PapaBear Weber-avatar

    Over all I really enjoy the pictures, information and tracking updates for the ISS. However, for some reason the new sighting dates are 2020? Please fix.

  68. Mary Reyes-avatar

    Unbleavable real live actiongt gos on n on photos. I love it.

  69. Samuel Russo-avatar

    What happened to the Android TV version of this app, I have it installed on my Nvidia Shield but just recently noticed its an older version and hasn't been updated. Have you guys dropped support for Android TV?

  70. claudine ford-avatar

    Was good when downloaded it over week ago. After 2 days all it's had on live camera is that unavailable. I have another app that has live stream and it's fine so it's to do with this app

  71. PeKame PeKame-avatar

    I like the app but the mass of the planets should be written like x × y^b , it would make it more easier to understand and compare the masses
