Personal Comments by Reviewer
This app is absolutely chock-full of useful info about the moon. I’ve always been fascinated with that great big rock that hangs in our sky, and how it influences so much in our lives. The different information in this app is really fascinating and has practical application, too. I’m going to try some of the gardening advice and see if it makes a difference.
