You're right, I should have at least mentioned Theodlite. I chose Spyglass because it has a few more features (the astronomy ones, for instance) for two dollars less (Theodlite is $1.99 for the basic version, 3.99 for the pro version), and struck me as cleaner looking.

Well worth the money. I have a hard time understanding why you recommended Spyglass instead.
