What is APOD Viewer for Mac

APOD Viewer is a Dashboard widget for displaying the "Astronomy Picture of the Day" from NASA's Web page. Each day a new image is presented along with a description by a professional astronomer.

In addition to showing the current image "APOD Viewer" also lets you see the accompanying explanation by simply clicking the image. Furthermore it can be used to browse the archives and can show a random image.

The widget has a simple and compact user interface. It is resizable to fit any screen size and provides you with easy keyboard shortcuts for easy interaction with the widget.

This is a great widget, beautifully thought out, but it has suddenly started acting strangely for me. The widget never gets more than about an inch wide (no matter how tall), and the picture is cut off on the right, a couple of pixels beyond the apparent left edge of the widget frame. I tried reinstalling, but no joy... Anyone have any ideas?

Very nice to see this working again. I had given up on the previous, broken version and deleted it just last week. The auto-scaling, selectable sizing, intuitive operation, and clean presentation of the details is very well done and makes this one of the two most elegant widgets I use (the other being iStat Pro). Thanks for the fixes!

Note that there currently is some problems with the back-forwards buttons, and the widget stops responding when the network connection is lost. This will be fixed in the upcomming release.
