hmmmm.... command + left click or right click the photo while at APOD and save to "downloads" how hard is that? Been doing it since 1995 - seems to still work I do not see the point of this. Free or not.

Great app used in my startup. It keeps me in touch with astronomy daily, and reminds me of the beauty all around me.

I gave this poor ratings because it seems to be crippled. There is NO context menu. There are NO shortcut keys evident. The link to the developers site is broken or non-existant.

Maury, thanks for updating one of my favorite programs. It quit working a little bit ago and I was going through withdrawal symptoms. Thanks!

I get a message at each startup of the application telling me that a newer version is available, but I run 1.2 presently. I do not see the preference pane for this app. This is the only glitch. The pictures download completely and quickly.

I really have been enjoying this app. It's working perfectly for me and has been a fabulous way to incorporate the APOD into our day. The picture looks great on my eMac, too.

I love astronomy photos & have since I was a kid. So I grabbed the chance to see them in Mac OS X. The software works, but the quality of the photos does not look as good as it ought to. Many seem to be grainier than other copies of the photos. Is it possible that in APOD Grabber they are enlarged to fit the monitor and my 15" LCD just makes them too big? Otherwise the software is great. If anyone knows how to beat the problem , here's a chance.

Its a nice little app, but i can't go back more than a few pictures without it just crapping out. It refuses to load the picture. This seems random and after I quit and start again the picture comes back.

What preferences aren't being held? No one has emailed me to let me know of any specific preference issue. Unless I know *exactly* what's going on, I can't fix it. =)

Just another heads-up: I'm getting loads of requests for some sort of calendar/day picking interface area, and that's what I'll be working on for the next major release. Thanks for the kind words, and thanks for the ideas. =) Maury

forgot to mention, it would be nice to be able to jumb forward or back to a specific date that way one does not have to scroll back through pics that have already been viewed or a bookmark to go back to where I left off from viewing images.

Very nice, I can never get enough pics of space and such, I use backlight with the pics and I get a very nice desktop pic every few seconds.I prefer backlight over apples automatic desktop changer, especially with space pics.

Just a heads-up: I'm aware that some users behind firewalls are unable to get APOD Grabber to connect and retrieve the information it needs to work. I just wanted to let everyone know I'm in the process of hammering-out the situation. Stay tuned! =) Maury

Cute little app, for sure. Quicker than Safari, clean interface. However, it seems to consume about 10% of my CPU when idle...

I definitely dig! Sometimes grabbing the APOD from the website locks Safari for up to a minute. Not APOD Grabber.

Great little app! Does exactly what it says it does, and does it well :) Two little quibbles, first when you have the "Details" Drawer open the entire app gets very sluggish (especially window dragging)...and two, which has already been addressed, no index of previous pictures!

I'll be adding a master index list in the next update. This will allow you to select any image from the list that interests you rather than having to keep clicking the "Previous" button. Maury

Nice little app. Seems to be very fast, much faster than using the crappy web interface. I only wish it had an index in a drawer on either side in addition to the pervious/next buttons. The buttons can be tedious when looking for a specific type of pic. Overall very clean, simple, and fast.

Looks good but no proxy support makes it unusable...
