Mooncast: Add A Beautiful current moon phase to Notification Center

In general, most of us take the moon for granted. It’s always there. All we have to do is look up at night to see it (depending on the time of the night and the moon’s phase). Some people claim that it has an effect on how we act.

Mooncast is a new app that simply show the current phase of the moon. The app recently received a major update that adds the moon’s phase to your Notification Center’s Today view.

The app features an image of the moon on the main screen. Above the image, you will see the date and the percentage of illumination that the moon will provide for the given night.
At the bottom of the screen, you’ll also see a quick view of when the upcoming new moon or full moon is scheduled. For example, the next new moon will appear on Nov. 22. The last new moon was on Oct. 23. The next full moon appears on Nov. 6.

Here's what the app features:

• See the current phase of the moon in gorgeous details on your Retina Display.
• Swipe your finger to change the current day.
• Jump to the next full moon, the next new moon or any future date, until 2025.
• Use the almanac to browse the predictions.
• Set up reminders for the day of the full moon or new moon.
• On days of full moon, shows the precise time the moon will be perfectly full. It works the same way for days of new moon.
• includes a Notification Center Widget.
• Universal app: compatible iPhone and iPad.
• Fully localized in english and french.
• Works well with all locales and calendars.
• Facebook and Twitter integration.

Speaking of notification, the app was recently updated with an iOS 8 widget that lets you see the moon’s phase right on your Today view. So, the next time your mom asks whether there is a full moon because people are acting crazy around her (true story), it will only take you a minute to tell her when to expect the next round of werewolf attacks.

Mooncast is available for $0.99 from the App Store and it supports iOS 7 or higher...
