- See information about any place on the map that you tap - or where you're standing.
- Search for cities across the world (database contains most cities with population > 5,000)
- See twilight drawn on the map

Important :: Bugs get fixed and featured added faster if you contact me via the website links, rather than commenting in reviews. For crash reports this is especially important - I need your crash logs in order to come up with a fix.

"This thing looks really nice. In addition I can attest that it's very accurate, it must be pulling in live sunset/sunrise data from somewhere..." - Review by Will on the UK AppStore (...and Will it doesn't pull in sunrise or set data from anywhere - it's all calculated within the app so no internet connection required).

"This software does exactly what it says: sunrise and sunset, times of civil twilight, nautical and astronomical, with a classic graphic representation! What more could you want?" - Review by Marc Revol on the French AppStore.

If you like this - check out the versions for Mac and iPhone.

What's New in Version 1.8

• Stretch the map to fill the screen (with the exception of the toolbar)
