Description

A guide to nature that brings you long range weather forecasts — sun, moon & astronomy — best days — gardening — and much more in a beautiful, easy to use app. Replace your paper almanac with this American classic. Our goal is to help you reconnect with the cycles and seasons of nature. The art, poetry, and advice remind you of simpler times — but the factual data is useful for today. Here’s a partial list of major features: • WEATHER: Long range forecast, historical averages. • ASTRONOMY: Sun, moon, stars, planets, constellations, sky watch, day and night length, twilight, eclipses, the seasons, meteor showers. • GARDEN: When to plant, frost dates. • ASTROLOGY: Best days, moon sign, the zodiac, Chinese zodiac, planting by the moon. • OUTDOORS: Best fishing and hunting days. • DATE & TIME: Holidays & observances, world clock, odd holidays, time zones, sundial correction, religious holidays, and unusual calendars. Weather and tide data are subject to availability.

    There used to be a way to contact Tod. Apparently, no longer. There is a major error in the 2018 Jewish Calendar re dates. Need to check and change. Thank you. Still no response or correction re Jewish holidays. I am extremely disappointed at lack of any answer.
  • It's okay...

    My intent of this application is basically for redundancy and averaging. As an example I normally use several weather apps (minimum three) from different sources, then take an average of what the weather could potentially be. My intent was to do the same specifically for the weather almanac feature to best understand what the weather could be historically. Keep in mind, there is no exact science when it comes to predictability, so I am not judging this app on this. * The application looks nice, but it's truoly a nice ported web interface design. The advantage is it's clean and easy to read, but the disadvantage is it's not good for power users who want a lot of information and quick navigation to get the data they need. * The content is by far the "most off" of my two other weather almanacs I use, but that's the reason I have it. I need to get averages, so this is good. * I do not like how you are either locked-in to their geo-location option or manual option. It should have an easy access "geolocate" me button like any other application out there. Also, the database of locations is restriced/limited to major cities only, which is a big shortcomming for me. I need to know by the city-level their recordered weather, not by the next major city, as any geological formations like foothills or bluffs can make difference. Overall, this is an okay application, but the interface could be cleaned up or have better configurations to best customize for an individual. The data is questionable, but still usable (note: I have only been able to test the weather and not any other features). The location search with automatic and manual options is archaic and should be updated. It's not worth price/value for what you get. I would think this would be more of a 99¢ app. That being said, I do not use this as a primary resource and used for averaging from differenct sources. I would not recommend this as a primary application and you would be better served with more sophiscated, customizable applciations and/or websites that do exactly the same thing. As stated, this "okay", but not recommended.
  • Very good, needs one improvement

    This is one of the most useful apps to come along in a long time, and I am enjoying it immensely. There is one improvement, however, that in my view would make it a five-star app. Under Christian religious holidays, the app provides the dates of most holidays observed by Protestants and Catholics. It would be great if it could include Orthodox Christian holidays. At the very least, providing the date for Pascha, or “Orthodox Easter,” would be very helpful. Keep up the good work!
  • Location needed, why?

    There is no explanation for this and if there is one in-app, I’m not able to get to it without enabling location services. I don’t like to turn it on unless there is a good reason. If the app needs to look up info based on location, can’t we enter that info in manually? I like to look up info about other places too anyway. I know it’s kind of over the top to give this a one star because of that one reason, but this tiny thing is literally keeping me from checking out the rest of the app. As in, the pop-up won’t go away unless I have location services enabled.

    Brings you a wide range of information each day based on your location (astronomy, history, and much, much more). Sure, you could Google each item individually, but so much handier having it all in one place and easy to look up! Thanks, Tod!
  • Fun app
