What's New in Version 8.7
- Tiny update to fix share URL for some Twitter clients
I noticed in the month of June, the moon phases were off by one day in comparison to the calendar I bought from the store and have, hanging on my wall. I use the moon phases for planting and casting spells; I am unsure which is inaccurate, but it did puzzle me. Looking at the sky didn't quite help either (both days looked so similar!)
I also liked the older version of this app. I gave one star less than I would have, because now in order to see the moon phase, I have to swipe. Also, what happened to the stars keyboard?? My son discovered that "secret" a while back and I am unsure how to do it again. He liked tapping the stars and making music.
I love Moon! It's simple, convenient & beautiful. I think it could be improved in a few ways. First, I wish the notifications were more frequent. I'd appreciate messages on more than just New Moon & Full Moon nights, because who doesn't love texts from the moon? Second, I'd like to see more information in the app about celestial events. There was a Lunar Eclipse recently—I wish Moon had told me about it. A heads-up for August's upcoming Solar Eclipse would also be neat, as well as basic information like daily moonrise & moonset times. Still, five stars!
I love it!
It's super cute and very aesthetically pleasing, easy access and easily understandable. I really enjoy the feature of being able to see what lunar phase will be happening on any given date with this app. There are occasional notifications that pop up will silly or cute phrases that make me love this app even more. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a simple but beautiful app that allows them to track moon phases. Great for planning nighttime outdoor activities on a full moon or connecting with Lady Moon during a new or full moon.
