  • 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!

    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.
  • Fun app

    It's a completely basic app. There's nothing on it you can't google. The horoscope says "the stars and planets will not effect your life in any way"(for every sign) its cheep looking and they offer you to be a part of a "beta test" for a new game, Don't do it!! I was spammed with 30 phone calls from crap adverts! There is on good thing about it, the planting calendar for your zone. If it was free I would give it 4 stars.
