Deluxe Moon is an impressive Windows Phone 7 application that helps you track lunar activity (here's our review). Lifeware Solutions has now released Deluxe Moon Lite, a free version of Deluxe Moon for those curious about moon phases but not ready to invest in the full application.
Deluxe Moon Lite, being a lite version, doesn't have all the features of the full version but can hold its own. Key features include:
- Touch-n-turn the moon to change the date
- Phase scan tells you when the next moon phase is
- Automatic positioning by GPS or cellular network
- Network independence: the app works anywhere without Internet or cellular connections
- Flexibility: you can manually set any location, time, date and UTC offset
- Displays current moon’s age: how far along the moon is in its full cycle and percent of the illuminated moon area
- Full names of all moon phases
- Zodiac sign (either Tropical or Sidereal) the moon is in
- Moonrise and moonset times for your location as well as a Moon Timer to show the amount of time since moonrise and until moonset.
While Deluxe Moon Lite lacks the Zodiac charts, moon compass, lunar/zodiac calendar and other features found in the full version, it still offers a considerable amount of data on lunar activity. Just as with the full version, Deluxe Moon Lite presents everything in a graphically impressive manner.
You can find your free copy of Deluxe Moon Lite here (opens your Zune desktop) at the Marketplace.
