Solunar is software for Android phones which computes astronomical times as well as physical and ephemeris data for the sun and the moon in real-time or for a selected date at midnight. Rise, set and transit times are believed to be ±1 minute accurate for moderate latitudes.
Solunar is accompanied by large 2x3 and 4x2 home screen widgets which offer rise and set times plus ephemeris for the sun and the moon at a glance. The widgets are also capable of increments and decrements in 1-day-intervals.
Since its major update to version 3.00, Solunar adds a planisphere, planet ephemerides, Galilean satellites and a new moon calendar design that includes the major phases for 6 months.
Solunar is basically designed or phones. It will run on tablets as well, but in portrait mode only appearing like an over-sized phone screen. A special version for tablets in landscape mode is available in Google Play as "SoLunAero".
The application is hoped to be useful for amateur astronomers and hobbiest, such as stargazers, fishermen, gardeners, plant growers, historians, hikers, photographers, sailors, campers, golfers, nature lovers and vampires.
