LunarSight: An iOS App for Moon Enthusiasts

I just released the first version of LunarSight. LunarSight is an iOS app that shows the most accurate and relevant Moon parameters, a monthly ephemeris and a calendar.

If there is enough interest from users, I will also develop a proper Mac version with possibly more features than the mobile version.

FreelanceStation 2.0: About the Future of This Mac Time Tracker

FreelanceStation is a Mac time tracker. It was created to be only available for Macs and there was no question about it.
