Once in a blue moon do you get a deal this good!
This app allows you to calculate information about the moon and sun based latitude, longitude, MGRS, UTM, or by selecting a location out of a database of more then 50,000 US locations. You can even share the data using email!

What's New in Version 1.2.1
It wants your location even when you're not using the app. Finding and/or entering your location manually is tedious, e.g., there's no way to copy and paste your coordinates. But the most ridiculous thing is that it doesn't remember your location, even if you simply minimize the app to see your desktop. When you bring it back, your location is gone and you have to tediously re-enter it. It's ridiculous. Don't waste your money.
There are other moon/sun apps if you want to gawk at pictures, but this one gives you the key azimuth and transit info those others do not. I fumbled with the thing to start, requested help at the email address they give, and got an answer the next day. Everything as advertised and great support--what's not to like?
Very informational app
This is a very awesome app. It is very informational, and it gives me everything I need to know. However, it lacks a Moon phase alert feature. I would like to have the choice of picking the phases I would like to be alerted about.
