Moon 3D / Moon 3D Free
Since Moon 3D was showcased back in September some new version were distributed to the Windows Phone marketplace. It now has more than 60,000 downloads and an average global rating of 4.4 (1100 reviews).
Moon 3D still calculates and displays the current moon phase - this hasn't changed. But it got some new nice features.
What makes Mood 3D different from other moon phase apps in the marketplace is that it uses a 3D model of the moon that lets you even rotate the moon to see the far side of the moon. You may ask: what is it good for? Well, it's just fun and it looks cool.
And another nice feature is the design editor. It lets you change and select the foreground and background images and all the colors and info that you like to be shown. There are some predefined designs to choose from, too (e.g. an animated winter scene and an animated background).
The freshly updated version (v 2.4) is available now. It comes in a free ad-supported and in a paid version for $1.99.
