Deluxe Moon lets you view the various moon phases based on a specific calendar date. Drag your finger on the moon to advance/backup the calendar. The default homescreen for this app includes information like the date, day of the week, location, moon phase, moonrise, moonset, moon age, astrological sign, and more!
If you click on the current moon percentage (e.g. 9.6% illuminated in the screenshot above), you can access the month long calendar of moon phases and zodiac signs. Tap on the astrological sign next to the moon (e.g. Sagittarius) to open the sidereal, tropical, and astronomical zodiac chart (check out the “?” button inside the app for more information on these astrological definitions). Lastly, if you want very detailed information about the moon’s current and future positions, click on any of the remaining information on the screen (e.g. Moonrise or Age). This will let you see real-time data about the moon age, distance, ecliptic plane latitude/longitude, and moon azimuth.
- Extremely sophisticated UI and graphics
- Extensive astrology/zodiac sign details and information
- Multiple homescreen widgets
- Great resource for astronomers and astrologers alike
Areas for improvement:
- Price is rather steep (would suggest ~$2-3 for the current features)
Conclusion: For anyone interested in astronomy or astrology, this Deluxe Moon app is for you!
