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
Does what it says on the tin, one feature request
I've always thought the native Moon complication was dumb for just sitting there, doing nothing. You look at it, it gives you no context. You tap it, nothing happens. It just tries to be pretty. This complication fixes that and now lives on all my everyday non-activity watch faces.
Feature request: The one thing I'd like to see in the app itself is whether the crescents are waxing or waning. Yes, I can scroll forward and use that time warp as context, but I'd still like to know at a glance (even if it's somehow improper according to some standard convention from some astronomical or royal society somewhere).
Oh, I guess I should've put that up top.
Originally, I gave this app 1 star, because I couldn't find it once I made the purchase. It was nowhere to be found.
So for those looking, you have to go into the apple watch store on your watch and go into "purchased items" and dowmloit to your phone. Once it is on your watch, it will finally come up as a complication. It gives very detailed information about the moon and it's appearance in proximity to your location. Make sure to set the device to your location, otherwise you'll get dase readings because the default location is Greenwich, UK (unless you live in Greenwich, then disregard my review). I don't know why they made it so hard to find. All my other apps download without a problem onto the watch. But I'm glad I finally got it. It's worth it!!!!
Way better than stock moon complication
Most of the bad reviews are from people who had problems installing this watch only app. Maybe the instructions are better now, but I didn’t have any problems. Also, you need to allow location access from the watch app to update your location.
I found the stock moon complication lacking and confusing. While Geneva Moon doesn’t do exactly what I wanted, it is clear and much more robust. What I was looking for was to have the complication clearly show moonrise/moonset like how the sunrise/sunset complication works. Geneva Moon has that info, but you have to open the app instead of seeing it on the watch face.
Overall, if you want moon info visible from your watch face, then this is the complication for you!
