Wonderful and informative widget! I bought the license but forgot the send my license ID to the author so I've mailed him and only a few hours later I've received my unlock code. Thank you! :)

13. december 2022 | Version 1.5.2

Thanks !! Great app, really useful and well made. Very good and simple integration too.

9. december 2022 | Version 1.5.2

Sehr nützlich und ansprechende Optik, danke an den Entwickler! Funktioniert einwandfrei!

22. november 2022 | Version 1.5.2

Thank you for enabling Up Down buttons for Fenix! Much appreciated. Thanks to this app it's fun to plan night walks under the Moon, or in complete darkness :-)

6. november 2022 | Version 1.5.1

When I came from Instinct to Fenix, I was missing the Moon calendar app. I found this app, and it is more than just the Moon calendar. Very nice graphics! One wish - please enable Up Down buttons even if the touch screen is enabled. Now buttons work only if the touch screen is disabled. It is convenient to have both options.

15. oktober 2022 | Version 1.5.0

Awesome. Just replaced the Garmin Sun&Moon app with Astronomical Darkness app. Much more complete and organized app for $3. Well worth it. Highly recommend!

Great widget to plan photo sessions with good light.

I paid for the unlock code, and 10 days later still no reply from the developer! Dear Roboleo1010, The Connect IQ user Andrea Piva has sent you the following request regarding your app "Astronomical Darkness": Hi Developer, I have sent the payment on Aug 30 thru via PayPal and indicated my license ID in the payment. Tooday September 10, I have still not received the unlock code. Can you please email it to me? Thank you

It's a scam - I paid for an unlock code and never received anything, not even a reply. Luckily PayPal provided a refund.

Nice App. Unfortunately did not receive the unlock code after the PayPal transaction. Try to get in contact with developer somehow.

24. august 2022 | Version 1.4.0

Great visualisation of dark hours of a day.

22. august 2022 | Version 1.4.0

Looks really nice, but it’s a bit confusing and I am not 100% sure why I would spend the money to own it permanently! The color scheme on the ring is not explained, only the darkness part (blue) is obvious. But there is yellow (the day..okay), orange, red and grey. What is behind those colors? But the app has potential!!

13. august 2022 | Version 1.4.0

Nice graphics, informative, but confusing. Nice Glance menu view. Circles in the main Winget view are confusing. for example: sunset at 19:30 Moonrise at 23:00 moonset at 18:00 so for the Sun circle, point close to 19:30 is Today but for the Moon circle point close to 18 and 19 is Tomorrow. Maybe it is worth it to break the circle. so left part will be Today and right tomorrow. just an idea, this needs investigation and testing . Up Down button do not work on Fenix 7

IN instinct 2 Everything is messed up and confused

Until now has been si helpfull

19. juni 2022 | Version 1.4.0

Strange that in the comments no one noticed that the widget data for Moon was wrong. Today view show data for the next day. So all time and position are wrong for actual sky view. (Emailed to developer this week)

I love the widget. Would absolutely be thriller if you would consider making a watchface from it.

Great app! Super useful for astronomy, photography to be able to tell when it will be the best time for viewing. Highly recommended!

I see that the widget itself is well made and the idea is good. But it is really annoying that many developers just get their app and put "instinct 2 compatibility" without making a single effort to make it working with it well. It's okay if you don't support it, but if you do, than at least check how it looks before publishing!

Great for planning photo shoots, astro-observation, nocturnal wildlife etc. I recently had my F6 replaced by Garmin under warranty and the author had no problem re-issuing a license for the replacement watch. Thanks Leon!

10. marts 2022 | Version 1.4.0

Clean, simple, useful! Love it!
