Please send an email if you have any questions, problems, or suggestions for making the apps better. I answer all email personally and promptly.
If your question may apply to other users, I will post the question and answer here.

The Apple App Store listing for ezAlmanac and ezSights says that these apps will no longer be updated. Why not?
ezSights and ezAlmanac were initially developed over 10 years ago using the computer languages and technologies of the day. With the changes to computer languages, development technologies, target devices screen sizes and operating systems, and App Store requirements, the continued maintenance of these apps is no longer possible.
Both apps still work properly and should continue to do so for the foreseeable future. As Apple makes its annual iOS updates, however, there are no guarantees. These updates frequently break things in existing apps, and I will not be able to fix them.
ezAlmanacOne is our latest app, is coded in a modern computer language, offers a number of improvements to our previous ezAlmanac app, and provides a modern user interface that will run on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and the new MacBook with M1 processor. An Android version that runs on tablets and phones is now also available.
