Fantastic app, nice work.
Note from dev: @Janis: it shouldn't be hogging anything, and it doesn't for most people. Please email for help!
Lovely app if it's one of three on your device. Resource hog: cpu, ram, gps, graphics. Battery vampire.
I LOVE this app! I can see what phase the moon is in by simply glancing at my phone! Plus I love the phase notifications. Awesome app!
Bought pro addition from android market and it says it cant verify purchase what a rip off
Very helpful, just what I wanted.
Bought this pro version 5 days ago Android still cannot use bing because bing says can't verify I own bing! Rip off.
Not a problem on tmobile G2, no slowdowns or battery issues. Every app by this dev is brilliant, bought all of them and look forward for more!
Good...but KILLING my battery. Had to uninstall. HTC incredible
