Android APOD app quit working

Postby Cymbaline » Fri Dec 30, 2016 6:57 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone else here use the Android APOD app by Sam Oakley? It stopped updating about 10 days ago. The last picture in it is the "Sharpless 308: Star Bubble" from December 20. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing to no avail. Has anyone else experienced this? Are there any workarounds or ways to fix it?

You might want to take a look at the last few posts in the Bugs thread. viewtopic.php?f=28&p=265492#p265492

The answer is that it won't work unless the author updates his app to work with ssl.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Yup, looks like that's the problem. If APOD changed to https on 12/20, then the app needs to be updated. I already sent an email to the app creator today. Thanks for the response!
