Moon Phase apps are now available in French and German

German French

My Moon Phase apps have become popular in Europe so to thank this market I have had the apps professionally translated into French and German.  The update is being delivered by Apple now and if you have a device that is running in French or German the swap will happen automatically once you update.  If these new languages are popular I’ll certainly be adding others.

Thank you again to you, my users, for the kind reviews you have left in the past.  Please do let me know via the support link above if you find any issues. Cheers.

I have released to Apple a new version of my Solunar Hunting Times App with a number of significant new features. The user interface has been updated to be far easier to read, I have added a weather screen along with future weather predictions, and full support for the new Apple Watch is added – Solunar times are now available on your wrist. Lastly the app has been updated to be fully compatible with the iPhone 6 and 6 plus high definition screens. For the many existing users of this app, this is a free upgrade. Thank you for your support – have a great season!

Moon Phase + Free was released in 2013 and has since become the most popular free moon phase app in the world on iOS. The app is based on Apple technologies that were first released in 2011 so the time has come for a major update.

The update is a complete rewrite behind the scenes and moves the app to the latest iOS technologies – refining the user interface and allowing future enhancements. I have been careful to ensure that the app is functionally the same as previous versions to ensure continued ease of use and that educator notes will not require update.

This update focusses on improved iPad functionality including rotation and a major UI tidy up, high resolution graphic support for iPhone 6 and 6+ devices, and bug fixes for older devices such as the iPhone 4s. Requested features such as mile/kilometre conversion and the saving of location between runs have also been added.

The app also will notify you in advance of upcoming lunar events.

The new version runs on iOS7 and later and is available now on the iTunes App Store.


Hair by the Moon

My latest app is a Hair care by the moon app. Just like farmers have grown their crops for centuries using the moon, your hair growth is also influenced by the moon. This app follows up my successful Moon Free app and tells you the best times during the lunar cycle to cut, colour and remove your hair.

The app is available now on the iTunes App Store in both a free ad-supported version and a paid ad-free version.


Big Weather App

Big Weather 1 Big Weather 2 Big Weather 3 Big Weather 4

I’ve always wanted to write a clear and simple weather app that just shows the basics – temperature, humidity and pressure for wherever you are – or maybe where you would rather be. I have written “Big Weather” that does just that. This app has been released to Apple for testing and release.  It supports rotation on iPad and Font scaling for the disabled. The app is free with advertising with a paid option to remove the advertising.


New version of Sunset and Sunrise

Nearly four years ago I wrote the first version of my first app – Sunset and Sunrise. Since then, Apple has completely revamped iOS multiple times and much of that original code cannot be used to produce a new version any more. The last update was over a year ago, and the release of iOS 8 with additional location security has forced my hand – I have  produced a new version with fresh modern code for the user interface. I have been careful to keep the original feel of the app that people love, while using Apple’s latest methods that will work with any new devices into the future.

Here are some screenshots of the new app at its current stage of development.

One Two Three Four Five

Careful study of the above screens will reveal that I’ve added a new feature that people have requested many times – the app now does not require location access to function. You can now choose your location on the map and it will be saved for future use without using the GPS. If you do use location access (still recommended for accuracy) you can be reassured that, as always, it only happens while the app is running. The issues with readability of text against the background have been resolved, and the UI is now compatible with the Apple’s accessibility functionality making all text resizable if you find it too small to read.

The new version runs only on iOS7 and above, however users of the earlier versions of iOS (about 6% of you) can continue to use the old version without hindrance.

This updated version of the app is available for free to existing users.


New Solunar Fishing App

Further to the recent release of the Solunar Hunting Times app, I’ve released a similar Fishing Times app to the app store. This uses the same Solunar methodology as the hunting app to calculate the best times to catch Bass, Trout, Salmon and any other sporting fish.

The app is fully compatible with both the iPhone and iPad, both on iOS7 and iOS8. Click on the button to view and download!
