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!!!
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.
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.
Very inaccurate: % illumination wrong ~9deg; new/full moon shown 3days. No way to set location or coordinates. Nice graphic, but about all it good4
Great Works great, and looks good too. Does everything it claims but the description fails to mention this also doubles as a good werewolf detector. Just set it to full moon and shove it in people's faces. Unfortunately it gave a false positive and we lynched the wrong person. Still an irreplaceable addition to our werewolf hunting arsenal.
Doesn't update every day. This app is cool. It just doesn't update on its own for some reason. Every morning I wake up to find that I'm looking at yesterday's info, and it won't change unless I change it manually.
Keyboard support added including zooming by volume buttons in exploration mode.
