Handy app but

One glaring issue. Not everyone uses UTC regularly. The mobile devices that the app is installed on uses local time. This app need to have the ability to do so also for where it uses time display. It is easier to just look and see local time and not have to worry about time offsets and doing the math.

Great tool!

I noticed sky conditions at my observing locations varied and I wanted to test this, and was looking for a tool. This app performs very nicely and I see the variability quantified according to a standard scale. Also developer very friendly and helpful. I’m going to use this to map out all my observing locations. Well done.

Handy tool

I like the app. It does well. The latest update doesn't seen to pull weather forecasts. Wish it would keep measurements longer or when restored to a new phone.
