Note that Smartha Ekadashis are not supported (but available in any Hindi calendar).
7) full support for ISKCON:
Both algorithms of calculating the start of the fasting have been implemented:
-- a) using Mayapur city (near Navadvipa, West Bengal, India)
-- b) using the 'Current location'
Notes for ISKCON:
-- a) used by AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada. This algorithm was widely used until 1990
-- b) alternative algorithm proposed in 1990
8) "Set Date" is a part of time machine which can be used to travel to an arbitrary point in time (currently years 2010-2026 are supported) and get information for that moment.
Note: the application doesn't save a time or info between sessions. Every time the app is launched it takes current time from system clock and makes calculations again.
