Very nicely done Works a treat on my Moto G. Would be nice if there was an easy way to see the info for today's picture (or the picture itself, unimpeded by icons) at any time, but you can always visit the APOD site for that if you're desperate.

Seemless Works great with apex launcher. Well done! If it doesn't work with HTC sense, try getting a launcher and select wallpaper through launcher software options
