Ratings and Reviews
Worthless without paid upgrade
As it is, the free version is a bit of a head-scratcher. "Settings" reveals things like being able to look at their other apps, or information about what version of app this is. The only thing remotely approaching what one would call a "setting" is being able to see the purchase upgrades, which is in fact not a setting at all, so why they're labeled "Settings" is frankly a bit of a mystery.
There is a list of eclipses, if I don't like the current one shown for the other side of the equator, but I have to select each one just to see where it might be, and once I start approaching something that might appear to be even remotely interesting, I find it's not included and that'll be $1.99 just to see if it's even in the same hemisphere, thank you very much.
While I understand these apps don't develop themselves, and it takes time and effort to put them together, time and effort that someone(s) would appreciate being monetarily reimbursed for (and I'm fine with that), when a free app screams "FREE" so loudly, and with so many exclamation points, there really is little point in even investigating purchasing upgrades with such little promise of acquiring anything useful in return.
What I wanted was something to alert me to and research upcoming eclipses of interest. Obviously I was mistaken thinking this would be it.

Thank you for your input. Glad to read that you recognize that the apps don't develop or maintain themselves. You have a few good points that we may take on board, however, we don't think the app screams FREE apart from the fact that it is free to download.
Great app - looking towards the future!
I think the app is great but needs to become almost exactly like the website! The website is absolutely brilliant and the app needs an option to look at any eclipse someone could want! I know you guys have plans to start rolling this out but it would be nice sooner than later. Hopefully you can get a few of the big upcoming/past eclipses into the app while you work on getting the app like the website. I’m hoping this update is soon because I love the app and want to have a reason to keep going on it!
-Also it would be nice to have it say how long totality will last at the chosen location on the map

Thanks for your rating and review. We are glad you like the app and website, however, the goal is not that they should be exactly the same. That said, it is correct that we do have plans to update the app, but are running into some difficulty with Apple maps not supporting eclipses at the poles so we are still working on that.
potential, but it's a delete for me
I actually paid. But turns out that it didn't have a way to set location such as a list of cities, or latitude settings, or even tapping a map. So when I reluctantly turned on Location Services, I took screenshots of info. Good thing because it didn't even save my coordinates. Went back to being useless as soon as I turned off Services. Won't buy from them again unless they provide a better design, free of Location Services. If they had allowed me to input latitude and longitude, and saved that information, and allowed me to save other presets as well for other places, this would have been 5 stars instead of quick-delete.

Thank you for your input. We will consider your comments for a future version of the app. However, we strive to strike a balance between intuitive usability and a full set of advanced features.
