A bit about MoonCalc Gear Web App
When developing the MoonCalc Web App for Samsung Gear 2 device, our team have been completely revamped design, functionality and mathematical model of the application taking into account specific features of the Samsung Gear 2 device. For example, when displaying the current phase of the Moon instead of the bitmap image on the HTML 5 Canvas formed a vector image. What, in our opinion, is more consistent with the style of design the Samsung Gear 2 device.
In August 2017 the A.V.T. Software team has made a decision to publish the MoonCalc Mobile Web App on GitHub as an open source project (https://github.com/SP-Vita-Tolstikova/mooncalc-mobile).
The MoonCalc Mobile Web App was downloaded more than 100,000 times by users from 186 countries of the whole world.
