Well, that didn’t take long! The first Astronomy Picture of the Day viewer or APoD viewer as some of us Space junkies call them, has hit the Store. Did I hear you say Panoramic? Yes, Apod viewing was naturally meant for Metro design language! You can pan till you drop for endless pictures of Space. What’s more, the vendor bring the Day’s picture to the Tile, so you are already enticed to go view the Day’s submission. Who says Tiles aren’t useful? You can view HD pictures and even Save it to HD or your SkyDrive account.
