For Macintosh Users

QuickPhase Lite, The Original
Moon Phase Program!

Dear Friend,

moon phases software illustrationWhen I first created QuickPhase, I received a lot of positive feedback. There wasn't (and still isn't) anything quite like it. Nothing else easily and simply provides monthly moon phase calendars for past and future, as well as detailed current moon phase information.

I later created an expanded version of QuickPhase. I dubbed it QuickPhase Pro (it runs only on Windows systems). The first, original version of the program I renamed to QuickPhase Lite.

I've received a lot of requests for a Macintosh version of QuickPhase, so I decided to re-introduce QuickPhase Lite specifically for Macintosh users.

QuickPhase Lite has been updated and improved (now version 2.0), but it remains a refreshingly simple, "lightweight" program that really is "quick".

It was created to be a handy, general reference. It does not have as many features as QuickPhase Pro, but users have been very happy with it.

Update: This software is no longer available. QuickPhase Pro for Macintosh is now in the planning stages. If you would like to be notified when it is available, please fill out the form below.

Check out the screenshot and features chart below to be certain QuickPhase Lite has the features you are looking for. The screenshot displays September 19, 2005, but when you open the program it will of course display TODAY'S information, along with whatever monthly calendar you desire, past or future.

* QuickPhase Lite has one calendar design, and it can be printed for basic reference, but the output is not refined and is low (screen) resolution.

** In QuickPhase Lite, clicking a calendar date number takes you to the main/detail screen for that date, at 12:00 midnight. Clicking the "Show Current" button on the main/detail screen refreshes the view to the current moon.

*** Phase calculations were randomly spot checked with U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO) data between years 1700 and 2035. Results for the latest version of Lite (2.0) are within 30 minutes or less of USNO data, averaging plus or minus 15 minutes.

QuickPhase Lite actually works cross-platform, not just Macintosh, because it runs directly in your web browser. The latest version of Safari or Internet Explorer is recommended. But it does NOT need an Internet connection, just your web browser software.

What People Are Saying About QuickPhase Lite

The following are some of the comments from users of QuickPhase Lite.

Note: Most people who had Windows systems eventually upgraded to QuickPhase Pro, but all the comments below came as feedback for the first version now known as QuickPhase Lite.

"This is a beautiful, fun and simple program to operate ... I like the deep space look of the images of the calendar, the realism of the moon images, and also the daily "specs". I printed out the monthly calendar as a reference document. In all, its a very welcome product!"

- Jerry M.

"Since I bought this program I've grown to love it. Easy, bug-less (in my experience) and always there! If you can't have the moon, this is the next best thing. It's handy, attractive, simple and seemingly foolproof (which in my case is essential)."

- Patrick Moore, Illinois

"Easy to install ... and I love the moon phases every morning and evening. Let me know if you have other good stuff!!!"
