I’m a casual observer of the moon. I’ve used many other moon phase calendars and they all suffer from two universal problems:
1. They provide too much information
2. The don’t provide the feeling of observing the moon
I decided I could use the opportunity to create a moon app.
My personal favorite feature of the app is the notifications. The moon sends notifications 24 hours before important moon events, just to warn it’s users of any forthcoming moon related unpleasantness.
It’s been fun to slowly iterate the app as Apple releases new features. It now supports Apple Watch, Apple TV, iMessage and has a widget for the Notification Center. Recently I also built the app for Android.
