Ratings and Reviews
Lovely and informative.
This is a handy app to have whether your interest is astronomical, astrological, or both. The moon image is realistic yet aesthetically pleasing as well. I also appreciate how they managed to provide a great deal of useful information without making the interface look busy. Thanks again to the developer(s).
This App is as good as it gets!!!
Would review as 6 stars! Simple, Easy & beautiful graphics! Love the alerts too, which I recommend purchasing! I studied Astronomy in college & I think this is the best sunrise / lunar app in the iStore!
