4/5 stars

Excellent, but...

Would be best of the APOD viewers, but doesn't have ability to save images to Photos!

Cannot understand why anyone would give this only 1 star, unless it's people who think 1 is better than 5.

In fact, it's hard to understand why anyone would give it a 2 or 3. Those folks really should have to write a comment or two of justification!
