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
Not sure the previous reviewer completely understands this app. You get the azimuth for rise and set by entering the time and then clicking the all data button. If you use this app with a clinometer, like the Suunto Tandem, it is quite useful and accurate at determining the exact location. It is great for determining the precise location of the sun at any given time of the day for photography.
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.
