SmartPhone/iPod App for sunrise/sunset times and moon phase?
I don't have a SmartPhone but do use an iPod Touch as a mini-computer and PDA (Calendar, diary, reminders, address book, mobile e-mail etc.)
Exploring on the net I find there are a number of Apps that will give me predictions for time of sunrise sunset and moon-phases by location.
Up to now I've used metcheck on my laptop (Metcheck.com - UK Weather Forecasts - Live Data - Long Range Weather Forecasts) - which doesn't give the moon phase and is not always available
I look it up on my Garmin GPSmap 62s (handheld GPS), which is fine if I am at the location where I want the prediction for and I have it with me, fired up and running.
There seem to to be quite a few Apps that would give me what I want, including some stalking/hunting oriented ones. Most seem very (possibly exclusively) oriented to use in USA.
Some seem more interested in horoscopes and astrology, not something that has helped my stalking!
Anyone have any experience of using one?
It must provide simply:
time of sunrise and sunset and moon-phase for present and/or other chosen location, for present and/or other chosen date.
Once installed be able to function without an internet connection.
Ideally it should use corrected local time i.e. if used here in Scotland today, would use BST.
be UK friendly!
If it's free, fast and without annoying adverts, so much the better.
I don't mind paying a few pennies if it really does the business!
Cabela's Recon Hunt App looks amazing, if you have an iPhone and live in the USA!
Cabela's Recon Hunt for iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad Wi-Fi + 3G, iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G and iPad Wi-Fi + 4G on the iTunes App Store
but a bit OTT for my purposes!
Any suggestions welcome.
