What's New in Version 2.9.1
Monthly crash fix
Love this app. Does what it says it does with no glitches as far as I can tell. I like that you can scroll back or forwards to your hearts content checking moon phase for certain dates with immense ease. Would definitely recommend.
Great for moon watching
I look at this almost every day to see what time the moon will be rising and falling, and what phase it's in if its cloudy - or even if it isn't. Perfect for those who like to keep an eye on the moon and what it's doing. I love it. Thanks for creating it. Much appreciated.
Well, I find it very interesting.
Especially living in England where most of the time you can't see the clear sky because of the clouds. It's nice to know which phase the moon is in. It's like having the moon in your pocket!
