Buggy - not very useful The app frequently crashes in the month view. There doesn't seem to be a way to get the moon phase for an arbitrary date. Also the app locks itself into portrait or landscape mode depending on whether you're looking at the month or phase view. Neither this of the paid version have been updated in quite a while. Pitty - I wanted to like this app. Uninstalling.
I really need to drop a star I have been using this app since I bought my Galaxy Note II and have loved it and had no problems, until... I installed KitKat on my phone. Now it acts peculiarly. The widget performs perfectly. But when I open the app it is on the last day it was opened or had a day selected, regardless of whether the 'save date' box was checked. I have done everything possible to fix it, including resetting my phone to 'factory condition'. I am saddened by this, but I will keep using the widget!!!
Simple and effective Ive explored other free moon phase apps and this one has always been my favorite. Simple with no excess clutter filled with ads. And because its simple and to the point, the download time is faster than other apps trying to offer more. This app and Night Sky Lite are always on my phone and are used to show my children the wonders waiting in the sky above us. And apparently its warewolf approved! Always a plus when browsing for moon phase apps.
Accurate and simple, but can't rotate for tablets Gives you the phase for any date you choose, defaulting to today's date. Can shift from phases to exploration of the surface of the moon, and can be set for Northern or Southern hemisphere - failure to set the right settings to do so may explain at least one negative review. Has a nifty widget to show a small scale phased moon on your front screen. My only complaint is that it won't rotate out of portrait mode, which isn't so good when using a tablet in landscape mode with its keyboard.
What happened?? Was working great on SG2, now I have an SG4 and can't get next month view to show. Only shows this month and previous months no matter which way I swipe! Even if I select a specific future date it goes to the past. Ok.. re installed. Now, swiping in calendar mode cannot take me to next/future month, only to previous month. To see full next month you have to touch a specific date - so it's 'jumping' and difficult to track where you are in calendar - this is terrible. Please FIX! Update - uninstalling!
Very inaccurate: % illumination wrong ~9deg; new/full moon shown 3days. No way to set location or coordinates. Nice graphic, but about all it good4
Keyboard support added including zooming by volume buttons in exploration mode.
18.b: minor bug fixed
Current Moon phase, rise/set times, positions of the Moon, Sun and major planets
