*** Featured on Tech TV! *** Get long range weather — sun, moon & astronomy — best days — gardening — and more in this INCREDIBLE American classic. "This app is everything I've ever wanted and everything I've ever needed on my phone."
"Good and Old Timey but ever so current."
"If I could keep only one app, this would be the one."
Our goal is to help you reconnect with the cycles and seasons of nature. The art, poetry, and advice remind you of simpler times — but the factual data is useful for today.
We believe in giving you more value than what we charge for. There are no in-app purchases and no up-charges. We like to keep it simple.
Most of our pages are calculated for your exact location for hyper-local results.
Here’s a partial list of major features:
• WEATHER: Winter 2015 forecast, long range forecast, 7-day forecast, averages.
• ASTRONOMY: Sun, moon, tides, stars, planets, constellations, sky watch, day and night length, twilight, eclipses, the seasons, meteor showers. Naked Eye Astronomy & Planisphere (sky map) shows you what's in the sky and where to find it.
• GARDEN: When to plant, frost dates.
• ASTROLOGY: Best days, moon sign, the zodiac, Chinese zodiac, planting by the moon.
• OUTDOORS: Best fishing and hunting days.
• DATE & TIME: Holidays & observances, world clock, odd holidays, time zones, sundial correction, religious holidays, and unusual calendars.
Weather and tide data is subject to availability.
What's New in Version 4.1.3
Fixed missing "Add to Favorites" link.
Needs a static calendar
What would make this perfect is a static calendar that could be integrated with the iPhone calendar for scheduling appointments
Even without integration a static calendar would make it more like a almanac with forecast that predict future weather and agricultural dates
What my definition of static is a month view of dates and significant dates associated with each day.
The present form is just daily view not monthly.
The app doesn't respond 20% of the time and sort of just ignores commands.
More Than Five Stars, Please.
This is an astonishingly exact, perfectly designed, stuffed full of useful information app. It deserves not 5 stars, but a constellation. The layout, design and detail are incredible. The links to related facts and information makes this little app a library of practical knowledge. I thank the creator of this app for letting us walk around inside his head. Amazing.
The only problem I have is that if I miss a day, I can't go back to see what I missed. I like reading what happened on a particular day in history, etc. and it doesn't let me go back to a different day.
I almost gave only four stars because of that.
