Lunartics reminds you of upcoming new or full moons. If, like me, you think people go a little more mad, wappy, bonkers and cuckoo during these moon phases, you'll love the app.
You can be notified of either new moons, full moons or both, by notifications which can howl at you or play other relevant sounds indicating the looming madness.
The app uses your current location, if granted, or you can specify your own latitude and longitude coordinates.
The information displayed includes:
• Moon rise and set information.
• The moon phase, how much of it is lit, and whether it is a super moon or micro moon.
• Whether you're in a new or full moon period.
• A scientific explanation of the moons phase.
• A spiritual meaning for the moon phase.
• The tropical (or sidereal) zodiac for the given date/phase.
• When the next/previous new and full moons are/were.
• The position of the moon.
• The moons distance from the earth.
To navigate to specific dates you can either use the left/right arrows along the bottom of the screen, or the calendar button (in the same area) to choose a date. The home button brings you back to today.
For iOS users, pull down on the screen to refresh the information, macOS users can us the refresh button along the bottom of the screen.
Display a compass under the moon position information. Not available for macOS version.
Choose between miles and kilometres.
Choose between mph or kph.
Enter your own fixed location, comprising latitude and longitude.
Days either side
This number specifies how many days either side of a full/new moon you want classed as the full/new moon period, as people might start going loopy just prior to those moon phases.
Change app icon (if supported on your device)
During the full/new moon peiod you can have the app display a different icon, choose between an erie glow or dripping blood!
This is the heart of the app, and necessary to enjoy it to its full potential. Receive notification when a new or full moon is imminent. The app’s badge icon will display the number of days until the full/new moon.
Select if you to be notified of full moons.
Select if you want to be notified of new moons.
Time of day
Specific at what time of the day you want to be notified.
Notify each day
When this is selected you receive a notification each day (at the specified time) up to and including the day of the full/new moon. Otherwise you just receive a notification on the day you have specified in ‘Notify days before'.
Notify during period
Get howled at/notified each day (at the specified time) during the whole new/full moon period! This period is when there is a new/full moon plus the value you specify in ‘days either side’. The app’s badge icon will display the days remining in the period.
Notify days before
You can choose how many days before a full or new moon you wish to be notified. Not applicable when using 'Notify during period’.
