Moon — Your Personal Lunar Portal

Moon — Your Personal Lunar Portal

Moon is probably one of the best examples of apps that are part of prestigious ‘one-thing-well‘ club. As the name suggests, Moon is a simple app that helps you keep yourself updated with not just the current moon phase, but also how it will look on a certain date.

There’s something calm and serene about Moon’s UI. You tend to keep looking at the moon in the dark sky lit by millions of little stars and other objects. You can swipe the moon to the left to read info about its current state and how many days to the next Full Moon and New Moon. You can also jump to a specific date in the past or future and see what the moon would have looked like or will look like. The way the moon transitions from one state to the other is so beautifully done.

The app has recently been updated with a whole lot of iOS 10 goodness, including a new iMessage app, rich notifications, redesigned widget, 3D Touch actions and a much improved Apple Watch app. If you have an iPad, you’ll love the larger moon on the big screen too.

Moon is a Free app that promises to never have ads. If you like the app, you can use the Tip Jar option and contribute $2 towards its development.

Moon is available for Free on the App Store.
