ftp used for downloading database updates?

Do either SkySafari 6 Pro or Starry Night Pro Plus 8 use ftp to download database updates? I ask because my Internet provider has been the source of ftp issues for the past several weeks. Sometimes ftp works and sometimes it doesn't.  I see downloading issues with the MacOS and iOS versions of these apps during periods when ftp is not working.  The Internet provider is researching the issue and I should let them know if the problem is affecting more than just ftp client applications.

    Mike,

    I can't say for certain about Starry Night, but SkySafari does not use FTP.  We use http: to pull the data from our servers.
