Well, I agree that its faster than APOD Grabber, but the fact that the Developers gave their app 5 stars really makes me wonder. Yes, I have tried it out and it works ok, but the pics are saved in a weird location. Other than that, I have nothing to complain about.

If you're allowed to use it for free, why is it registered as shareware with a $5 fee?

APOD Grabber is a fine application but it's also huge and an application. AutoAPOD is free, installs as a preference, and doesn't require you to do the fetch daily yourself. It's also about 10 times faster then APOD Grabber.
