Ratings and Reviews
I really like this app
It's fun to watch day and night move across the earth during the days and months. I also like watching the changing positions of the sun and the moon. The eclipse function is especially cool. Only thing I would change is the annoying scrolling info about how to read the map. I liked it the first time but now I'd like to turn it off!
It's just a Map
This is just a Map showing how the Sun and Moon light up the earth. You can pick any date to show.
For this price, I expected to see all the features of the cheaper Apps included in this one - but this is just a Map. I will have to purchase other apps to get the Time Zone display I was looking for.
This app shows where the sun when...
Very useful for navigation astronomy.
