"This app ... will show you a moon calendar and what the moon phase was or will be for any date between 1900 & 2100. It also shows you tons of other location-based moon data and has some very pretty animations to get the info across. Recommend!" Appolicious - Best Moon Phase Android Apps

Lunatic I love almost as much as the moon, itself. The widget [has 3 sizes, btw,] is a great added touch, as well. Get it!

Simple yet informative I am am a casual astronomer of many years and this app is a very nice, quick lunar reference tool. The wallpaper is handy for a reminder of what time of month it is. Also, the quality of the graphics is amazing!

Almost perfect Two things to point out: 1. The shine of the moon is too low, does not correspond with the reality. Would be great if we could adjust it. (just look up the sky at night and compare) 2. I would love to be able to position the moon on my screen (lower / higher / left / right), I don't like round things centered in LWPs.
