Apple Watch Screenshots
I've always liked wearing a lunar complication on my Apple Watch. There is something both visually delightful but yet also slightly geeky about it. But I was unable to find a complication that provided an astronomically accurate moon display...which just kinda bothered me. So I made Geneva Moon.
Geneva Moon seeks to provide a highly accurate, visually pleasing indication of what the moon looks like right now, right where you are. My goal was to make it so that if you look down at your wrist and then up into the sky the images you see should match.
It includes a robust set of complications for every watch face type.
Choose between either a visually rich 'actual ' appearance or a more simplified version, to fit your own personal style.
The main display indicates the current azimuth and elevation of the moon along the horizon along with a visual indication of its phase and orientation.
Rotate the Digital Crown to shift forward and backwards through time and see how the moon will shift (tap on the screen to reset to now)
On Apple Watches equipped with a compass (Series 5) you can have Geneva Moon orient itself towards the actual moon to make it easier to locate the moon in the sky.
Thank you for considering Geneva Moon, I hope you enjoy having the moon on your wrist as much I do.
- Fix an issue where the previous moon phase button wouldn't respond correctly
- Fix an alignment issue that caused the horizon view to off by one pixel
Ratings and Reviews
Wish it were more customizable
Awesome concept for a stand-alone watch app, and it works well. That said, and maybe Carrot weather has me spoiled, but I find myself wishing the complications were more customizable... for example, the corner complication feels too large on the solar dial face. I’d love to be able to customize each of the complications, for example, label options to have either the moon rise time (like the stock app) or phase would be cool. I also don’t love the rendering.. the textured moon face is a little too crisp for my tastes—a slight gradient on the shadow line would help.
Needs better instructions
Yes indeed, impossible to enter + on an Apple Watch. I installed this app the day that it was announced and it was painful.
With that out of the way, the only issue is that once you install it you need to enable location tracking to get the proper realistic view for your location — and I didn’t see that documented. Unlike iPhone apps, apparently there is no automatic popup to request permission.
Perfect with Solar Dial
I think it’s best in Simple mode on the lower left complication slot in the solar dial watch face. I had actually been quite annoyed by the lack of rotation of the built in complication a few weeks ago - so this solves it and more. The more is that I can view a photorealistic representation AND use the dial to view phases in the past and future! I’m using a Series 4 so can’t review the compass functionality.
