Nice looking, inaccurate. Off by one time zone.
Too bad Moonrise can't derive the correct time zone; I'm in NY (and its map's pin is correctly on my block) but it says I'm at UTC -4 (incl. Daylight Savings Time), but it should be UTC -5. Compared to the other calculations it must do, this one seems trivial, yet it creates a gross error making it unusable. The ads work great, though, so I gave it two stars. Oh, I followed the link to support and it brought me to a page (with no contact info) that included the following: The calculations for events are accurate to a few minutes of the US Naval Observatory sun and moon calendars, and it doesn't rely on large astronomical data updates, nor on-line sites. In fact, it never accesses the Internet! So that may explain it. Nice that it doesn't need Internet access, but nicer would be if it were accurate.

Daylight error
I really like this app and I'm sure anybody that wants to know when the sun rises and sets will like it also. There is however a problem in that daylight saving time is not accounted for and the times are an hour off. I'm sure that it will be fixed as soon as this review is read.

Knowing the lunar phases is good. Having a lunar tracker that is 2-3 days OFF the actual lunar phase is NOT good. Recalculate. Seriously.

fail
Anyone that says it works great is lying and is probably friends with the developer. The pin me function doesn't even work, at all.
