Say what? Great App!

If you are a weather geek and sky watcher like myself this app is just plain awesome! It’s got everything you need and it’s a one time payment that is very fairly priced so that’s just icing on the cake!
Say what? I see comments, one in particular, that just make me roll my eyes. For instance: “I’ve been using this for a couple years and it’s great! However now that I have to pay for the premium I’m going to delete the app.” Say what? Just grab some change from the jar and there ya go, it’s paid for and worth every dime, nickel and penny you had to part with. I’m sure the developer will be just fine without ya though!
Great app with great features and with a one time LOW payment it’s yours forever! Nice work on this app I definitely recommend it 👍🏻

I love this App

I Absolutely Love this app! So easy to use and follow the moon phases for fellow moon lovers like myself ! However one thing I would add to make the app even better is on the calendar I would love to be able to go back hit a full moon day and see what moon it was in for example full moon in Leo or cancer etc sometimes I like to go back and take a look in the near future and know what full moon will be next other wise this app is amazing keep it up

Now requires Premium to unlock features I’ve used for years...

Well I’ve been using this app for a long time now and I use it as part of my job. It’s been great! However, I guess with this last update they made it to where you have to “unlock” with premium the ability to CHANGE THE MONTH OF THE CALENDAR... how ridiculous is that?! it’s been nice using this app but I refuse to pay for a feature I’ve been using for years now. Thanks for upping your business model to the same crap everyone else is doing where you now have to pay for features you’ve been using already for free. I will be deleting this app and searching for another. Thanks for all the years I was able to use your app before this.
