On some android versions without a hardware settings button, the settings menu was unreachable so i added a action bar with the settings as action item and the rest of the menu items in the overflow menu.
If you have the location on automatic, there is a line in the settings menu that shows the last calculated position.
On the moon widget you could choose to show the transit time, but it was never shown.
On the info screen i have added a close button so you can close the screen instead of using the back button.
On some phones the sun-moon widget would take 3 by 2 cells instead of 2 by 1
And last but not least, by accidentally including too much of the google play library i needed 4 extra permissions (that i didn't even use)

It's been a while again, but released 1.18 today. The mayor improvements are on the moon widget. Each moon widget has its own settings for background transparency, shadow transparency and the text items to show on each corner. Those settings can be recalled again when you touch the left 3rd of the widget, the right 2/3rd shows the main app.
You can now for instance add a moon widget without any text. You can also resize the moon widget. It might be possible that the moon image is not directly updated on some phones and the image looks fuzzy. When the widget is redrawn after a while, the image must be correct again.
Scaling of the main and calendar screen has also been updated and fits better on larger screens.

Released version 1.17.
Since the last update some errors kept returning, specifically in the billing routines. Those routines were based on the examples provided by Google and they made some changes that i also had to make.
Also, on the calendar view, some people reported ads popping up, despite buying the ad remover.
One of the moon phase descriptions in Russian was double, corrected that also.
Working now on a new larger moon widget with configurable text items.

Just released version 1.15. Many people requested a paid version without the ads, so here it finally is. With the new billing library it was not that hard to implement it.
For the ones who don't want ads, go to the menu and choose remove ads, it will take you to the market where you can finish your purchase and if all goes well the ads should disappear.

Well, something went wrong and i accidentally published a wrong version. So i had to publish a new version with the test code removed.
The billing permission stayed.
I was thinking about a paid version for a while, but couldn't decide how to implement it, a separate app, a key app or in-app billing. Google recently updated their libraries and made it simpler for developers to implement in-app billing. So now i am trying to add in-app billing to remove the ads.

Stay tuned

Released a new version today with the choice to display all times in 24 or 12 hour format. Because of the extra space needed, the percentage moon lit on the widgets is removed if a font size other than default is chosen.
I got some reports that the moon image on the main screen of the app was not showing on the Nexus 7. There was an issue due to the larger screen of the Nexus 7, also fixed that.
Next thing i am going to work on is a payed version which removes the ads on the free version.
