Moon Phases

Never guess about the Moon Phase again

Moon Phase Widget is application for those who realize that Moon is not just rock in the sky, but it is very beautiful phenomena unique to the planet we are living on. Our lives are affected by it every single day and I hope this application can help you better understand it.

You can see the moon phase of today and browse through phases by day or week by swiping finger across the screen. Gardening tips displays the information that is important for bio-dynamic gardeners. It is based on the American Tradition of the Lunar Gardening.

It also include an exposure calculator for photographing the Moon. It will give you the estimated shutter speed required based on your ISO, aperture, weather condition, moon location and phase. You can also use month view to see moon phases over the entire month and quickly move to specific day with taping it. Moon phases also include some nice widgets to use at your home screen so that can always know what is current Moon phase.
